I have to say that I have strayed. I used to eat at Ruth's Chris locations regularly and strayed away to Flemings and others...but when I was in Arlington I remembered how great Ruth's Chris is and so went here. GREAT filet. Love their sides. I am back Ruth and I won't stray again!

The happy hour selection was great especially the tuna, the view of the airport was also unique and service had a lot of old world charm, the drinks although inspired did not satisfy

We're glad that we found out through the office that they have a happy hour, even on Sunday. You can even take children; just sit at the table vice bar. The small plates are great if you're not super hungry and the drinks are delicious too.

First, I want to say I have eaten at Ruth's Chris for years, in West Palm Beach, Washington DC, Annapolis and NY. We went to this Ruth's Chris for my son’s birthday dinner with a party of 5. The reservation was for 6:15 pm. The restaurant was basically empty; it was a Monday night. I had requested a table in... More

Went here with a group from work for the happy hour and dinner. Dinner was very good and service was fine, but the happy hour app selections weren't great.

They need to take down the RC flag at this location. I am not sure why or how this location get's the reviews it does, but our experience there was horrible. The restaurant is very dated, parking is difficult and the restrooms look like something out of an interstate rest stop. We stopped at the bar for a drink before... More

Best date date night ever, ask for Brian if you can, greatest server ever. I would go there ever day if my waist line could handle it. Price... You pay for what you get. Worth the price. I 100% recommend it to everyone who love a good steak.

I was shocked at the prices, yet after tasting the Petit Filet with Shrimp, I totally believed the prices were warranted. Also, the Berries with Cream were to die for.

This was one of the best, and i mean absolute best steakhouses i have ever been to. I loved everything, and my only complaint is that i didn't order enough! The waiting for our food was a bit unpleasant. We got there around six, and did not return home until ten thirty. But nonetheless this was a fantastic place. I... More

Went to Ruth's Chris's Steak House. - This time the new one in Gaithersburg in Crown near Rio. Our waitress (Elizabeth) was great! Top-notched service. Food was delicious.... We both had the lobster bisque which was good. Not great. Then we both had the Chilean Sea Bass (Patagonian Toothfish) which was nearly perfect. I think I had one bit that... More
