no one can beat the taste of their steak, but they have a hard time getting the temperature correct. It always seems to be a little over done or raw. For the price it should be correct every time. The sides are nothing special, the salads are pretty good.

Awesome service with a valet parking only and friendly staff. We got a trainee (I think his name was Jake or Chris, I might be wrong.) as our server with his supervisor 1 feet behind him while trying to please us. He did a fantastic job and your business will be good having him as a server. Our steaks were... More

Years back this was an excellent restaurant, not the same these days. The vallet welcome + host and staff very friendly. The bread was disappointing. Our steaks were just fine, the sides not so much. Dessert pretty lame.. I guess for a chain restaurant it's just OK, but for the money spent there are far better places to eat. Unless... More

What a great dinner! Loved the crab cakes, the steaks were cooked perfectly & full of flavor. We ordered the petite Ribeye with cream spinach and baked potato. For dessert we had the white chocolate bread pudding & key lime cheesecake. Delicious is an understatement! Service was great as well, thanks Brandon, we'll be back!

Steaks are really an experience here. The meats here are about the finest you can get--anywhere. If meat is what you want go.

Went there for a great piece of beef--and I was not disappointed. I had the petite filet with mashed potatoes and mushrooms accompanied by a nice Malbec from Argentina. Pricy but worth every penny

I took a close friend to dinner for his birthday and chose Ruth's Chris Steak House. We did not have a reservation, but were quickly accommodated upon arrival! Most chain restaurants seem to loose appeal with typical menu items, however, I found the choices and entree items to be excellent. However, the prices are ridiculously high. Side dishes should be...

The bar area at Ruth's Chris Fort Lauderdale, is a lot of fun, they have the TVs where you can always watch a game and enjoy a drink with a very good meal. Their roasted chicken is delicious.
