“Check out the bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

Love this restaurant. Ruth's food and service are always excellent, but this location stands out for its atmosphere, architecture and decor. Everything is interesting and gorgeous, including the front wine room and back patio bar. Definitely check out the newly added indoor bar--awesome midcentury modern vibe with a cozy feel. Beautifully done.

“Always the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

If you have been to a Ruth's you know. If you have never been set yourself for a steak that will match any others. The building is elegant and the staff are top of the line. If you are celebrating something you get a special treat.

“McGuire's Has Comparible Steaks for 1/2 the price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Outstanding Steak, fish, appetizers, spinach, and wine - but way overpriced compared to many other Destin restaurants. If you are lookiing for 5-star service and presentation for a special occasion, Ruth Chris will suffice - but if you want great steak go to McGuire's - I personally think McGuire's beats them for 1/2 the price. Also, we went here for an anniversary and had a reserved booth along the wall which was cozy, but many guests were crammed into small tables in the middle of the restaurant with little privacy which is very uncool for a restaurant this expensive.
