Excellent customer service

I had the Tuesday night special of 1 1/2 king crab, asparagus hollandaise sauce, shoestring potatoes with a soda for $79. I was there early enough just after 6 pm to have literally no wait. There were a lot of private party events this night which surprised me. I was seated in a quiet area and... read more

You can't go wrong with Ruth's Chris. This store offered easy valet parking for a fee. The restaurant service was excellent as is to be expected. The food was off a little from other stores, but still decent.

I'm not a huge steak eater, so during a trip out with family I tried the scallops, and there were very good. Salad was nicely prepared, and the desert was good, too. What you'd expect from a Ruth's Chris, including the price. Service was also very good.

Went to Ruth's Chris downtown for an 8 PM dinner on a Saturday night. My son was leaving town for a job assignment the next day and wanted steak for dinner. Five of us with a last minute reservation. Seemed busy, not overwhelmed. Seated promptly, professionally, and courteously. Went downhill after that. Ordered drinks which took 15 minutes to deliver.... More

We go to Ruth's Chris a couple times a year and just went this past Saturday night during Restaurant Week. The special was three courses for $30. I always get filet mignon and it is top notch but my friend and I each got the petit filet and immediately I noticed the quality of meat was not the same. Also... More

On valentines day, i was third wheeling with my parents and went to this restaurant not knowing what to expect. Well, i was not disappointed. When the our lovely waitress Liz, brought my steak out sizzling and juicy as ever, it made my month. I will return indeed!

This was the 3rd time that I have had an amazing meal at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Each time that I have come my husband and feel like the experience gets better and better. Although it maybe a high price tag for some, I've come to realize that you get what you pay for. The quality is top notch.

Returned to Ruth's Christ Steak House on Water Street (Baltimore) last evening and we were not disappointed. They have nailed down a consistently well-done paradigm of the great American steak house. Predictably well done steaks and chops; great sides to share and excellent and attentive service. The wine list was remarkably good and I was pleased to see the pricing... More

Our experience here was wonderful from the relaxed atmosphere to the excellent meal. However, it was so pricey that I wouldn't return. I don't mind paying for a nite out, but quite frankly, it just wasn't worth it. Again, the food and ambiance was excellent, just not that excellent.
