Happy Hour Excellent; Jasmine provides great service!

I really like this location for happy hour. The sliders, prawns, crab stuffed mushrooms, and caesar salads are excellent. Mai Tais are very good. My husband had the gumbo and he really enjoyed it. Jasmine is a delightful server. A good tip is to pick up a $100 Ruth Chris gift card for $80 at... read more

This wasn't what we expected at all. Service was great, but food mediocre at best, and don't even get me started on the cost for this mediocrity....do yourself a favor, save your money and go somewhere else (several times for this cost)....parking at this place is a nightmare as well, just fyi.

Jasmine is a delightful server. A good tip is to pick up a $100 Ruth Chris gift card for $80 at Costco and use it here.

A hair on a 55$ USD steak ?!?! Bravo... Not only it's disgusting but also it is not hygienic. Service is mediocre. Steak (as everything else here) is overpriced and the worst thing it's not that even good. Fries were too salted. Trust me, better find some other place to eat and save you some money.

We (my three girls) were not that hungry when we visited the Restaurant. I had a perfect filet mignon and the girls just shared 2 plates. I expected that this could be a little problem, but the server proved me wrong. The were despite the small check delighted to have us in the restaurant. All the food was very delicious.... More

We early-dined at the bar to view the Golden State Warriors on TV. Steak, ($53.00 for a 3 course dinner), perfectly prepared, medium rare. Salad, crispy, cold, very nice. Service was perfect. Very clean place and indoors-outside seating, (even at the bar). Happy hour Beef Sliders, $8.00, fantastic. Happy hour house drinks, $8.00, a good value. Huge cheesecake desert. The... More

This Ruth's Chris Steak House lives up to the name and reputation. While visiting in Hawaii and celebrating my husband's birthday, I asked him if there was anything else he really wanted to do while we were there. He said eating at a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse was on his bucket list! So, this became our final "event" on our vacation.... More

Went here for Christmas dinner with the family. I expected a large bill, but the food did not disappoint. We ordered a bottle of wine, shrimp, sushi, filet mignon, and ice cream for dessert. The service was good.

We stopped by Ruth's Chris after several days on the Big Island eating at local places. It was as good as expected from a Ruth's Chris and service was excellent.

We occasionally stop by and eat at Ruth's Chris when we are looking for a great steak. You always know what to expect here and the service is great.

It has been several years since I dined at a Ruth Chris. Besides the food, what I remembered most was the excellent service. I was used to one waiter serving about four tables and the water glass never being less than full. Based on that prior experience, the service at this Ruth Chris fell below expectations. Our waiter disappeared for... More
