Appetizers and steak were extremely delicious. Cocktails were generous and service was great. We ate and drank on their deck and enjoyed perfect weather there. The waitresses were very attentive and told us the history of the waterfront.

The location on Water Street is the best by far. The atmosphere is very comfortable and relaxed. The staff is amazing. My favorite steak there is the cowboy ribeye with the blue cheese crust and the broccoli Au gratin. This is the best steak house ever. The bartender Leander and the waiter Scott are the best. Once you have the... More

Service was so slow and wait staff not accommodating and compassionate when we were not even asked if we wanted anything to drink for 25 minutes. The prices are astronomical for anything to be sub par. Our waitress just walked out in the middle of her shift it was a mess.

The food is excellent but the price is very high. Service is good, I would go back only for a "special" occasion.

After an Orioles or Ravens game, there is no better place to go for a casual, fine dining experience. Love the Ruth's Chris restaurants....Arrive in nice shorts in your team colors and shirt. Service, food, drinks to dessert all great. All apps are good but they do have their specialties. Steaks are the go to but the "Cowboy Ribeye" is... More

A colleague of mine turned me on to the Ruth's Chris Chain of Happy Hour Menu Specials. Since I pay my own expenses....I'm always looking for a deal. Awesome Crab salad BLT with a side for only $11..... Ruth's Chris Quality at a Panera Bread price. What a deal. Add a nice micro brew and a good bartender....a meal fit... More

This location has an excellent outdoor dining area. The atmosphere is wonderful overlooking the inner harbor. This Ruth's Chris offers nice price discounts on numerous drinks and appetizers during happy hour. I tasted quite a few of them and all were excellent. As far as their steaks go I have never been disappointed at any Ruth's Chris. Their style of... More

Great service! Clean. Had crab cakes and barbecue shrimp. Consistently good every time! Every time I go to Baltimore I must stop. Outdoor seating is a nice advantage.
