Horrible service, horrible attitudes, lots of “ I’m sorry” being said. Lounge full of thugs. Filthy overflowing tables in lounge. Plastic fork and knife to eat a steak in your room. A joke. Move on down the road to the Habitat at the Grand Bahamian....We’ll never come back to this hotel or this restaurant! So happy we moved to the Grand Bahamian!!!!!!!More

We had a dept Christmas lunch there and it was nice. Not crowded at all My concern is this is primary a steak place and many people like baked potatoes with their steaks. 3 people ordered baked potatoes and the mgr came back and said...they only have 1. This was at noon and you just realized you are out of a product. Put you ass in a car and go to the store or 5 guys and get a couple of bags. Didn’t have mashed potatoes either. SadMore

Thank you for your candor about your recent holiday celebration. I'm glad that you enjoyed your meal, but I apologize for our limited potato selection. We generally don't offer potatoes at lunch because except for the holidays, most people don't want a full steak meal...More

We had an overnight trip planned and stayed at The embassy suites for location purposes and the fact we had the convenience of a suite, near shopping and a great restaurant. We ordered a bottle of Shiraz, and ordered from the pre fixe menu. They...offer and $49,95 and a $59.95 selection. We both ordered the higher one which had the 6oz filet and lobster.. Delicious from salad to dessert. We started with the spinach and arugula salad with a lemon vinaigrette and beet dressing, asparagus, chopped egg, onion and sweetened pecans, served with hot baked sour dough bread. A great salad. Next our steak and lobster was served...cooked perfectly. It came with one shareable side each and we got the mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. In addition we got the roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon. There was enough of a portion for three people! Next came dessert and it was very big...a couple bites, but we were so full from dinner that a larger piece would have been wasted. The dessert was a praline sauced bread pudding served with a small bowl of vanilla ice cream. It was the best meal right down to the service. Nothing was lacking. Our waitress was always ready to refill glasses or answer questions. Very friendly, very professional. Would highly recommend.More

I truly wanted to rate the food a two but our service was exceptional so I’m giving this a three. Granted, we went at lunch and didn’t order a steak which is what they are known for but a restaurant of this quality could certainly...do better. We each had a salad which was well dressed and a good salad but that is where it stops. We split a sandwich and fries. The bread was barely grilled/toasted on one side and not at all on the other. It also had so much butter on it that it was soggy. The fries, though seasoned well, were very greasy and soggy as well. I think it is the first time I have never eaten my fries. I have heard many great reviews regarding their dinner so even though this was a bust, I would give the dinner menu a try.More

I had never eaten a steak until 1993, when I was in my 30's. My first steak was at this Ruth's Chris location. Petite filet, butterflied, medium well, extra butter. WOW! It was delicious and set the bar very high for me and steaks. We...go several times a year to celebrate special occasions...from 1993 until now, it has always been consistent. This past 4th of July we went and each had filets (I've graduated from Petite - LOL)... our sides were the roasted corn with jalapeños, and sweet potato casserole... both were excellent. Service is always great and the atmosphere is nice. One of my favorite meals EVER.More

We visited the restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The salads were excellent. Filet mignon was tender and delicious. The portions were large and more than we could eat. The desert was delicious. Nice atmosphere with linen table clothes and nice silverware settings. The glassware...was shiny and clean. Our waitress was very astute to our needs and provided personal service to each individual. I plan to go back soon and would highly recommend this restaurant.More

I treated my husband to his 1st visit to Ruth's Chris for Father's Day and let's just say they did NOT disappoint!! From Appetizers (specials of the night fried oysters and blackened scallops) to dessert everything was delicious and on point. Our filet (Oscar style)...was cooked to perfection, lobster tails sweet and all sides were plenty to share after such great entrees. Although we didn't have room for dessert we couldn't pass up cheese cake and Creme BRÛLÉE (since GM visited our table to recomment - we couldn't pass it up) for a late night treat. Service at Ruth's is also top notch, our server Ashtyn A was on her A game and was very friendly, knowledgeable about our choices and accommodating with all the questions of a first time customer. She also packed us up a nice to go package as well. Not often you find a 5 star restaurant were you are able to take home left overs. O and the hostess was very nice and helpful when I had to move my reservation to a later time and the food servers were pretty amazing with presentation of our meal!! Great Job and EXCELLENT dinner!!More
