“EXCELLENT STEAKS WITH WITH VERY HIGH PRICES”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Let me start this review with a statement. Ruths Chris steakhouse(yes that's the correct spelling) is one of top two or three steakhouses in central Florida. The only gripe I have with Ruths Chris is that most of the side dishes that normally accompany an entree like potato or salad or veggy, whether it's a Denny's or a high end place like this, are included in the price of the entree. These are ala carte here and costs quickly add up. It's my opinion that when you pay anywhere from $25.00 to $50.00 for a steak, no matter how great it is the side item should come along with it. That said, steaks here are as good as they get. In fact, all that I've tried from appetizers to desserts are fantastic. In addition, the drinks are very well done too. A place for special occasions.

“Dissapionted”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

Well, wife and I were trying to decide where to go for our 30th anniversarry. I called up to make reservations and let them know what the occasion was. I was told they would do something special. To me it seemed as if it was a canned presentation. Service was mediocre at best. Food as usual was very good, just very dissapointed at the "special" service. While everyone said the right words, it seemed scripted. It didn't seem as if anyone went out of their way. I'll go back because the food is good, just not for anything special.

“ok but,”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

this place is very good. drinks are good the meats are very good. the desserts are very good.
but for the steaks and the lamb chops were very good they had to much salt on the meats.
maybe the cooks or chef don't watch how much salt they put on the meat. they should taste the
seasoning before they use it. to much salt ruins they taste of the meat.

“Great Service; Just OK steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

First time here. We were told many times that this is one of the best places you can go to in the Tampa Bay area for a steak. The service was excellent. Carlos did a phenomenal job, the best service we had ever had. The manager, Jim, came to our table and we had a great conversation. Atmosphere was very nice. The only disappointment we had was the steak. My wife’s mom’s steak was over cooked and dry. My wife’s filet was not that great. My NY strip was ordered medium and came out rare. I had to send it back. Overall, the steaks were nothing special. We have definitely had much better. We will probably not go back, as there are too many other places to try.
