We had the most delightful steak sandwich for an early bird special. The fries were great, the steak was great, and beyond affordable, perhaps $15 or so. Service was excellent and they did a great job.

Went for Happy Hour which is I believe from 4-6. The menu is limited but the prices were great. I had the steak sandwich on focaccia bread and it was the most tender steak I've ever had. It was only $9 and came with a ton of fries. Was so big I took half of it home. The prices on... More

I have eaten at Ruth's Chris restaurants all over the States and I will never tire of doing so. My mouth is watering now just thinking back to the 22 ounce cowboy ribeye that was so perfectly prepared for me. With a few sides to share including au gratin potatoes and creamed spinach, this was my favourite meal of the... More

Ate there as part of a large family gathering in a private room. That was very nice. This was part of a life celebration for my amazing uncle. My aunt put this together and chose a reduced menu with the choice of Filet & shrimp or Salmon including salad, sides and a desert. My wife chose the filet and I... More

Loved their happy hour at the bar! Wonderful service and ambiance, with very good prices. Ruth's always has great food, and the happy hour specials did not disappoint. Had fabulous steak sandwiches, stuffed with delectable steak, and served with delicious french fries. Didn't expect such great service during happy hour, but it was superb! Can't wait to go back.

This was a special occasion for my wife & I. We enjoyed a wonderful evening here. It had been several years since eating at a Ruth's Chris & we both felt the prices had increased quite a bit, but when it comes to food, our meals were prepared & filets cooked to perfection for our particular tastes. Carol was our... More

The food and service in this restaurant is outstanding. My only issue is that the prices keep rising ahead of inflation but as long as people keep going, I guess the prices will keep rising. They have a very good 3 course menu at a set price and allow you to bring your own wine and charge a corkage fee.

I have been here 3 times in the past and it never is quite up to par. The decor in the restaurant is nice. The server was attentive and nice. The food was just average. For 144.00 for two people, it wasn't worth it. One salad, one little soup bowl, steak, spinach , potato, and a little dessert. I could... More

My husband and I joined friends here for happy hour and had the steak sandwich with fries. It was delicious. We also split the skewer sailad which we found not as good value but still tasty and ideal for ine person if you are not very hungry. The atmosphere was great and prices reasonable. We look forward to returning on... More

As this was almost next door to our Motel, we thought we would give it a try. Excellent service, nice atmosphere. The sea bass was absolutely delicious.
