“Overpriced and unoriginal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

If you're a fan of chains and names, then you may have reason to want to go to Ruth's Chris. We have friends who love the place. For us, the lack of originality added to the high prices simply equaled a realization that we were unlikely to return. With so many fun places in downtown Baltimore, why spend so much for a chain restaurant with food that can be found anywhere and service that doesn't seem to care if you're there or not. If you're feeling wealthy, try Charleston instead! If budget is a factor, there are some great steaks to be had in Little Italy, too.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We looked up a place to eat that afternoon while we were in Baltimore and settled on this Ruth's Chris because of the proximity to our hotel. Our server was so friendly and sweet to our 2 year old daughter who was with us to have an appointment at John's Hopkins Children's Hospital. The food was excellent, as were the cocktails. The children's menu was fantastic.

“Happy Hour at the Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Ruth's Chris has a really great happy hour at their bar. Drink deals and bar food for a good price. The restaurant is really nice and they have a great outdoor dining area. The the weather was not great when we were there I would have loved to sit outside and enjoy the view.

“Food great, service could have been better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

We had a business reception. The food was outstanding and everyone was happy. The staff became very flustered and irritated after we had more people than expected. A couple of the staff actually showed their irritation to client. Not good. I saw quite a few with empty glasses and all the food was late. Probably due to the increase in people but one of our presenters had cold food because the food took too long and they were presenting by the time they received food.
