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.

We have a standing New Year's Eve date @ Ruth's Chris. The food was wonderful, hot & sizzling! The service was seamless, without interruption! Great evening! We highly recommend it!

The service was disappoinintg and absolutely not according to the level you would expect from a restaurant in this price-range. The waiters were wether knowledgable nor seemed they to be interested in our wishes. For a group of 8 customers, they were not able to deliver the filets in the ordered degree of cooking and were rather reluctant to correct... More

My wife and I ate at Ruth's Chris for our anniversary. We both had the filet along with a side vegetable of the creamed spinach and mashed potatoes. All of the food was excellent and the steak was tender, flavorful and hot. The wait staff was attentive and polite. We highly recommend this restaurant for those special occasions!

Ruth Chris is not just a restaurant. It's an experience in delicious dining, food, service and atmosphere. We visit the location off of Jones-Maltsberger and the it is always a wonderful experience. The friendly greeting at the door upon arrival and departure to the helpful patient server who is there to take care of you.

We have been here several times for just the happy hour. They have a separate menu and servers. It's sort of a quick and less costly way to do Ruth Chris'. Our server was Anthony and he's a real pro. The happy hour menu has some good deals beside the reduced wine and beer pricing. The steak and mushroom kebab... More

We were invited to Ruth's by an insurance salesman. When we entered it smelled like a locker room. My friend also noticed the smell and said she thought they were covering up something. I don't know, but the smell was worse in the front rooms, and wasn't so bad in the room where we were seated. We ordered the petite... More

We made a reservation for 7.15pm days in advance and when we got there we were only offered a table at the bar. I refused this and they got us a table pretty quick. Bad start to the evening. Once sat down everything became normal for Ruth's. I go to the Houston Ruth's all the time and it is one... More

Went here with my wife during a big pharma conference. Had high hopes for this place knowing that Texas is famous for steak and Ruth's seemed to have a good reputation. When ordering they put a lot of effort into explains what well done or medium etc means. However it took 3 attempts to get my wife's well done steak... More
