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.

It was the typical Saturday evening with a rather busy place. I would suspect the place was not packed on the given day simply because it is cost prohibited for most people. This is not the first time at this location and, again, the service was excellent, from accommodating the short notice request for reservation, to the cuisine and table-side... More

Ruth's Chris consistently has better cuts and larger steaks than any of the other high-end steakhouses in San Antonio and their prices are usually slightly less than the competition. We've always enjoyed very good service here but then we always ask for Carly as a server.

Our waiter was not interested in serving a 3 person party. He had 6 persons at another table which demanded his total attention. Took close to an hour to get entrees. Did not even ask to refill a glass of tea. Excellent food-sorry service.

This was my first time here, and what turned out to be a visit for their very popular happy hour, turned into a dining experience I won't soon forget. So just FYI you can make reservations for their happy hour, as it gets very full due to the low prices they offer in comparison to the dining area, we did... More

I went here because I lost a bet between the Celtics and Lakers.I am glad that I lost because I won by walking into this fine establishment. The atmosphere was peaceful and I felt like I was at home, not on the road. I applaud the service it ranks as no. 2 on my list. The Prime Rib, sweet potatoe... More

Restaurant was remodeled a few month's ago. We enjoyed very reasonably priced happy hours cocktails at the bar before dinner. Bartender was very friendly and made mojitos for the ladies. The barbequed shrimp appetizer was very good. Most of us had filet & lobster and it was outstanding. We ordered 4 sides to share. The au gratin potatoes and asparagus... More

I've been going to this restaurant for nearly 20 years. It's always been good to exceptional. Our last visit on our anniversary, was a big disappointment. I always look forward to the center cut bone in lamb chops; you virtually cannot usually find these elsewhere; most restaurants serve lamb rack of ribs. This restaurant changed the entress to rib chops;... More

I had been to this restaurant for my birthday two years ago and had a great experience from the service to the ambiance and of course, the food! I couldn't wait to bring my husband back (he wasn't with me for my birthday) and so we went for our 33rd anniversary. I was so disappointed! For my birthday, they had... More
