We ate at Ruth's Chris tonight expecting to be blown away by this famous restaurant. I eat at a lot of nice restaurants on a regular basis, but I usually stay away from chains. However, I wanted to finally try Ruth's Chris since it was a block away from our hotel.
The reservations were at 9. The table was ready at 9:30. We were only given the option to sit in the bar area, which was very loud. The musicians were HORRIBLE. We've been to a dozen restaurants at a much lower price point with musicians much better.
The server(s) were semi-friendly, but I had to wait 10-15 minutes after both my wine and water glass were dry each time before being offered a refill. Everything server-related was slow.
The steak was terrific. I've had many that are better, but it was still very good. The salad and mashed potatoes were mediocre at best. The dessert was excellent.
I don't know if this is typical of Ruth's Chris chain or if it is just because it was in a touristy area. There are many, many better restaurants in the Savannah area.
