Excellent Steak, Terrific Service

Hadn't been to a Ruth's Chris in a decade, and it was just as good this time as I remember. Pricey, but they deliver. The steaks were cooked to perfection for everyone, the sides were plentiful and delicious, and the drinks cold and kept refilled. Clearly professional service - attentive but not... read more

A family dinner, ordered the stuffed mushrooms which were overcooked. Ordered the oysters Rockefeller which were undercook. Salads were good, steak done well, cheesecake underwhelming.

We came her for restaurant week and it was absolutely amazing. The staff was extremely kind and attentive. There was the option of 3 course meal for 30$ or just the normal menu. The steak was incredible as we're the potatoes au gratin. Overall it was a great dinner! Will definitely be coming back.

The Water Street location has always been my "go to" dinner choice for hosting both business and social events. The decorative wood finishes, subdued lighting and uniformed wait staff provide a glimpse into rat pack era dining formality. The food is always consistent, exquisitely prepared and served with the gravitas consistent with the price point. Until this Saturday evening. Early... More

From the moment you enter, you are warmly and professionally greeted. The appetizers are all excellent...we had the gumbo on a chilly night. Wonderful presentation of a great bowl of seafood gumbo. The steaks are all cooked in super hot ovens and served sizzling and full of flavor. We tried the rib eye and the petit filet. Both were done... More

I have been to the one in Pikesville a few times, and the one on Pier 5 a few times when meeting friends and... More

Best steak ever!!! Not sure if this is the location we ate at. It was the one at the Pier 5 Hotel near the harbor. Either way, the steak was made perfectly, tender, and delicious. We ordered the 3 course special...starter, entrée w/1 side & dessert. We ordered the 16 0z steak..big & juicy w/green beans in garlic..tender and delish... More
