“Soft and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

The service was outstanding and steak was one of the best I have ever had. This is a great place to eat! The server was wonderful and was very helpful. I recommend this place as a special treat for those special events.

“Can't Wait Till Next Year!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

My wife and I celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary last evening the same way we have for the last 10 years or so, by dining at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. It's our once-a-year splurge and it has yet to disappoint. The steaks are the best I have EVER eaten, the shrimp is cooked and seasoned to perfection (again, no other shrimp I have tasted compares!), the sweet potato casserole and the broiled tomatoes are heavenly. The service was stellar.

We have dined at other Ruth Chris restaurants in Indianapolis, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, and Louisville and must say we like the ambiance of the Tampa restaurant the best. Keep up the good work!

(the only disappointment during this visit was not getting a complimentary creme brulee to share for our anniversary as we have in the past.)

But we're still coming back next year!

“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.
