“Disappointing service and ambiance”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

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.

“What A Great Place For Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

My husband and I had dinner at Ruth Chris this evening and all I can say is what a great place to have dinner. We had a reservations and only had to wait ten minutes and this was on a busy Saturday night. Once seated we were water and bread showed up within minutes and our waiter, Brian, came at the same time. Brian was wonderful, gave suggestions for the wine and entree then came around to ask if everything was alright. So, we had a wonderful meal in a very nice place and enjoyed ourselves which is the most you can ask for.

This was such a wonderful and elegant experience. The food and staff were both beyond my expectation. What a wonderful dining experience. I recommend that everyone dine here at least once.

“GREAT FOOD... very expensie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

In my opinion, you cannot beat a good Ruth's Chris Steak... if you can afford it. The steaks taste great, maybe the best tasting steaks ever. But everything is al a carte, so if you want to add anything to your meal, it costs. Very, very expensive!! They have no kids menu, so leave the rugrats at home!
