The food was very good. Steak Filet was amazing. hot plate with melted butter cooked the steak a bit more to perfection. Worth the money. Halibut was ok ( from specials of the day), but not worth $42.00. I make it better for a lot less. Asparagus and potatoes were tasty, but nothing special. Waiter was nice enough to suggest... More

I love Chris' steakhouse. Love it! The one I am most familiar with is the one in North Carolina where anyway they can help you they will. The one here, quite different. The waiting staff was excellent, but Lord help you if you want to continue to feel like a human being after hours. The doors were open and staff... More

Fresh rose petals on our table upon arrival and one of the best meals I have ever had. We had cocktails at the bar before dinner that were wonderful and the meal was even better. I would never have guessed that this was a chain restaurant. Wonderful service and food.

We have dined at this restaurant twice. It's a good place for special occasions. The setting is somewhat formal, but the atmosphere is homey. Very friendly service. The seared scallops are my favorite. It's a little expensive, but you get what you pay for.

I dined with several friends at the Ruth's Chris Steak House located at Pier V. I cannot complain about the food or service, they were outstanding. All of the food was delicious; from the salads and soups, to the steaks, sides, and dessert. Our server was courteous and we were not rushed through dinner. What makes the steaks so special... More

The steak here is really good and the portions large but the bill is very pricey. If you like cigars, they have a cabana club upstairs where you can smoke. I personally am not into that. It is a nice place to go to dinner for a special occasion. However, if you are looking for steak in Baltimore, use that... More

We have a family tradition regarding medical care. We always go to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. We always stay at a great hotel in the Inner Harbor. And we always have a splendid meal the night before the appointment, in this case surgery. Well Hopkins is first rate, and for this trip the Marriott with a harbor view from... More

We arrived at Ruth's Chris for Father's Day, only to learn that our reservation was actually for a different Ruth's Chris in the city (Water St location). No matter, they quickly accommodated our party of 7. Our waiter was knowledgeable, patient, prompt, and accommodating. Everyone rated their food highly from appetizer to entrée to sides to desserts. Our table was... More

We have visited this establishment many times when visiting relatives from the Uk. I have never been disappointed on any of our visits, the level of services received from start to finish is first class. The food, well I cannot praise the steaks enough I have never tasted a better steak since. If you go try and get Scott as... More
