Food was OK, as were the side dishes. However, at the prices charged by Ruth's Chris, the restaurant was disappointing. The filet and rib-eye were no better than Texas Roadhouse, but at more than double the price. The service from Jeanie and her team was...More

We celebrated my wife’s birthday at RC. We shared the 16 oz. NY strip along with some delicious sides. Steak was perfect. Service was excellent and very professional as always. RC is a great place for a special occasion or any other time

Very friendly staff will make you feel at home from moment you walk in the door. The best steaks I have ever found. Forget the so called "best steakhouses" list. Perfectly cooked, great (and generous) sides and a nice wine list with something for everyone...More

You cant go wrong at Ruth Chris. The filet mignon cooked medium rare is perfect as it comes out still cooking on a plate sizzling in butter. The sides are large, so maybe split one with your date. The sauteed crimini mushrooms are awesome.
