We have been to several Ruth's Chris. This location did not disappoint. Like any upscale steak house, the menu is pricey but it is worth it every once in a while. Expect to spend about $100.00 per person. Parking was ample. We came on a Sunday Evening and the place was attended mostly by locals. Locals being lots of senior... More

We dined relative early in the evening and were immediately seated. Our server was Mark and he did a nice job of handling our orders and needs during the evening. He sprinkled "Happy Birthday" sparkles on the table for the two persons celebrating birthdays and they had an extra item on their dessert complete with a candle. All of us... More

The Happy Hour at this steak house is not to be missed. The dishes on the menu were great, including the ahi tuna entree.

We always go to a Ruth's Chris restaurant wherever we travel in the USA, we are from the UK where to be frank the steaks are pretty bad. This one however was very very poor, we were disappointed for the first time. One steak was ordered medium well and even after sending it back twice it was still rare! The... More

We hit the Happy Hour whenever we are here at least once. The steak sandwich with béarnaise sauce and fries is the best. Very tender steak slices with béarnaise sauce on a bun with lettuce, tomato and onion. Crisp fries were great. Kenard, our bartender, was fantastic. Made a really delicious pomegranate martini and found me an empty Grey Goose... More

I go to Ruth Chris when I want a wonderful steak. It never disappoints. The service is so good and accommodating to all your needs. It is a special meal for a special occasion or just a place that is always a wonderful dinner.

Had reservations and no table available so sat at bar for a cocktail then taken to table and swapped for a quieter one. We've been to Many Ruths with somewhat mixed results so know the menu and brought our own wine as they're are overpriced and have reasonable corkage fee. Our server wasn't so nice, rather brash and snappy but... More

Great food, service and location. You likely know the menu is great. This location has nice decor, and is very well run. Some nice specials which include salad, entree, side and dessert are a favorite.

Having visited more than 6 different Ruth Chris locations nationwide, it is easy to provide an honest based on comparison dining. First, the Caesar salad was good: fresh, crispy, and the additional anchovies requested made for a better salad. The appetizers were alsi very good: the ahi tuna was fresh, seared very well, and served with a good dipping sauce... More
