Description: Ruth's Chris Steak House was founded May 1965 in New Orleans by Ruth Fertel. Our specialty is aged corn-fed USDA prime beef, broiled in a trademark 1800 degree oven and served on a plate heated to 500 degrees to ensure the steak is sizzling hot. We also offer fresh seafood including live Maine lobster, lobster tail & Atlantic salmon. Private dining rooms available for groups of 10-100.

Staff was great and very helpful. Food was great. I would recommend the swordfish. If you have never been there be prepared to spend more than you would at most places but it is well worth it. It was our first visit and we will definitely go back again.

I had a very limited time for lunch so I ate at here as it was connected to the hotel. The staff was friendly and my waitress brought my ticket with my lunch as I requested. The burger patty was juicy and the cheese was not a melted mess. It was sturdy enough to see it was cheese. The fries... More

I have always loved the Filet's at Ruth's Chris, and once again I was not dissappointed. Great food and great service.

Made reservation in advance and asked for quiet room. Was seated in what is the noisiest of all the rooms. Asked to be moved and was. The three of us ordered. The shrimp coctail was very nice although dressing on the "greens" under the shrimp didn't go well with the very nice shrimp. Then one steak arrived - we had... More

Located on opposite side of U.S. Highway 281 from The Quarry Shopping Center in a combination strip center office complex. Valet parking offered, although we didn't use it as there was plenty of parking. Décor is a little dated and could use an update. I ordered the NY Strip (not bone-in), which was perfectly cooked and seasoned, but had some... More

We were one of the first to arrive on a Sunday. This is a restaurant that we haven't been to in awhile. Our server was an old pro who had his presentation down pat, so good that he just flew through. We ordered two filets that were easily the best of breed. My issue was that I ordered the steak... More

Ruth's Chris are nearly always perfect and this is no exception. The shrimp cocktail, cowboy ribeye, and some wine are nearly always my order. And in this case they were perfect. Thanks.

First let me say that the service was excellent. However, the steak and side dishes just were not that good. We went here for our anniversary and one of us ordered the filet mignon and the other the ribeye - the steaks laked the typical Ruth's Chris flavor found at other locations. The steaks were just bland - we also... More
