Cane here one night for a steak and was well worth it. A friend of mine and I shared the T-bone cooked to order and it was one of the best I've had. Another friend ordered the cowboy ribeye and it was over cooked. So the manager came out with a new steak and said they were going to take... More

Love this place and the staff is so attentive. They made sure everything was perfect. Yes it's pricey but the food and service are well worth it.

We thought we'd treat ourselves to a nice dinner in destin. I knew it would be 200+but since we were on vacation I thought why not, right? Service was fabulous and they definitely have the atmosphere right. Beyond that the dinner was fair. We both ordered the chefs special which was filet and warm water lobster. We started with bang...

This Ruth's Chris (RC) is located in beautiful Destin Florida. The dining is just what you have come to expect from RC. It, however, offers exceptional entertainment with live entertainment in the formal restaurant and wonderful "island sounds" on the patio bar. The steak (filet) is wonderful! The "sides" are excellent as well and make for the greatest meal in... More

I initially ate at Ruth's Chris in NYC several years ago and was astounded at the relaxing atmosphere, superb service, and exquisite food! I take my mom every year for Mother's Day and she loves the feel of eloquent dining and fork tender steak. It has become our annual celebration and I highly recommend this fine dining experience.

The food, atmosphere and service were great. We did not call ahead for the Banana dessert but can be requested.

I am not reviewing the normal dining experience, which is excellent, but rather high lighting the Wednesday evening locals night happy hour. This is an excellent opportunity to have Ruth's Chris quality food at a bargain price. The normal happy hour is 5 to 7 pm but on Wednesdays in the outside bar the bailout hour is from 6 to... More

A New Orleans based restaurant that doesn't have ability to make a sazerac??!! A drink that is famous at any Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Our overall service was mediocre. Several bottles of wine that we tried to order they were out of. Some of our orders were totally wrong. Best thing we ordered were the steaks and as always they did... More
