I get to Ruth's Chris as much as possible! (Which is not often enough). I like the 16 oz. New York strip. The steaks here are so flavorful and always perfectly cooked. When the steak comes out sizzling and spitting butter at you I get really excited. For the a la carte items we usually get the Au Gratin Potatoes... More

I've loved the white table cloth formal dining of Ruth Chris as a special occasion place my whole adult life. But I think I've grown out of it, it just wasn't that special any more. We had a good waiter, but service was not that personal experience I remember. We had the 3 course meal specials, mine was 45 and... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Ruth Chris. We split the 16 oz. NY strip steak; we shared the sweet potato casserole and fire-roasted corn dish; and, we had an excellent bottle of wine. Dessert was on RC in honor of our anniversary. Both food and service were excellent. I think RC is the best steakhouse in Sarasota.

We saw the Savor Sarasota ad where several Restaurants offer a 3-course meal for $29.00. One of the restaurants we choose was Ruth Chris. Glad we did. We would not normally be able to eat at such an exquisite restaurant on our budget unless it was a really special time. There were 4 of us. The menu is limited but... More

It started out ok but quickly went downhill from there. Took twenty minutes to get my second drink, the watery bland salad got taken away by a kid we didn't know, to whom I tried to complain to but got zero acknowledgement. My "medium" bone in filet was cold and purple in the middle. The potatoes were extremely undercooked. I... More

The Ruth Chris bar menu is one of the best bargains in town for a casual dinner. The menu includes a burger or steak sandwich with fries for $9, Ahi tuna and several other selections during Happy Hour from 5 to 7 pm. You can order from the regular menu as well. No reservations needed.

We made reservations at Ruth's Chris for our anniversary and I can tell you we felt like we were royalty. The food was amazing and the servers were very attentive...a very special evening. Would highly recommend this restaurant, especially if you want to celebrate a special event. Wonderful experience.

While visiting Sarasota in Florida, we tried many eating establishments. Some famous ones fared not very well by their reputation. For a great dinner, we turned to our favorite, Ruth's Chris Steak House, located at South Tamiami Trail. We would like to say, that the table service is quick and polite. Their bar is well stocked with the top-notch and... More

I always feel special here and am never disappointed. The staff is most attentive and the food is absolutely wonderful. Sides are ala carte and easily shared because of the size. Loved the crab cakes as much as the mignonette. Perfectly cooked! Very pricey so for us on special occaision said only.
