It's been years since I have visited a Ruth Chris Steak House. So many new choices. Service is impeccable as is the food. Expensive but well worth the visit. .

I have lived in Austin almost my entire life. I've had all kinds of steaks. This place has the best steaks. The way they cook the steaks is the secret I think. Tender, juicy lots of flavors going on. The chop salad was almost better than the steak. The cocktails are fresh and amazingly good!! The atmosphere is ambient and... More

I have eaten in many of these across the country and this one upholds the standards of the original. The three of us sampled bone in fillet, bone in NY strip and the T - Bone. All were great but the fillet was the surprise with astounding flavour and succulence as well as the expected tenderness. The wine was very... More

Had dinner there Wednesday night with several friends. Meal was spectacular! It is a pricey place but they make the best steaks served sizzling hot. I have eaten at one in New Orleans as well and they just do not disappoint ! The ahi tuna appetizer and crab cakes were super. Roasted asparagus and hollandaise top notch. AND a tasty... More

Ruth Chris has a way with steak. From the use of prime cuts only (many high end steak houses dont) and the 1800 degrees broiler they use to cook them, this small chain offers one of the best steaks ive ever had. Everything is ala carte so if you like all the add ons, it can get expensive per person... More

Best steaks around. Granted it' pricy, but you won't find a more tender filet minion any where. Fantastic a romantic anniversary dinner. its an easy walk to 6th street after dinner for some good live music and drinks.

If steak is your thing then you can't pass Ruth's. From the petite filet to the Rib Eye the steaks in our group were superb. Lobster Mac and cheese , Brussel sprouts and mash you couldn't ask for more. Mind you the appetisers of tuna , calamari and crab cakes were full of flavour and a little spice. Unfortunately, there...

Been twice now, both times for business, and I look forward to the next visit. Always the same. Red wine, wedge, filet and asparagus. Great atmosphere for business dinner and always staff that wants to make sure that everything is taken care of. Always happy with the choice.

I have never been to a Ruth's Chris but I have heard many good things and it definitely lived up to my expectations. The service was impeccable, from the servers personality to the back waiters class and sophistication, it was a real treat to see such attention to detail. The Seared Tuna was exceptionally fresh and perfectly balanced in a... More
