So, let's face it - Ruth's Chris is a known entity. The food is always top-notch, the atmosphere is very classy. This was no exception. I had a tomato/mozzarella salad and the lobster tail and my hubby had a Cesar salad, the filet mignon and we shared a creamed spinach. I had a glass of champagne, he had a beer... More

The food was great but it was fairly expensive. We had a good waiter who knew her wines and food. The restaurant interior was of classic American design with a grand decor. It was a quiet evening and the waiter had some time to talk with us and tell about the history of the restaurant. I would recommend this place... More

In a town of many steak houses this location has always exceeded my expectations. The bone in New York strip is worth every penny . For dessert I always order the best creme burle' anywhere . Service top notch !

We enjoyed our meal and our server was pleasant. The quality was good...as far as Ruth's Chris goes is was a 4 instead of their usual 5 stars, but was definitely worth the visit.

Food was beyond excellent. Nicely prepared and served with panache. Steak was so tender as to be able to be cut with a fork. Caesar Salad was scrumptious. French Onion Soup likewise. We dined on a Saturday night prior to Fathers Day. Not to be snobbish but our evening for two at this establishment was in excess of $250 and... More

This was a disappointing meal at Ruth's Chris. The restaurant was extremely crowded, and the table next to us was full of screaming drunks. The server was very nice, but unfortunately, the subsequent service sucked. We waited about 30 minutes for our orders to be taken; the birthday boy ordered a mai tai, but the server forgot about it. When... More

I've been a fan of Ruth's Chris for many years, and this establishment lives up to the name. The steaks are phenomenal. That being said, I loved the barbeque shrimp appetizer so much I went home and tried to find a copycat recipe online. My daughter doesn't eat red meat so she had the stuffed chicken breast. She said it... More

Took my husband for Father's Day dinner. Service was not up to par for the amount of money spent; especially with the choices we have in this area. There is really no reason to go back. After waiting for more than 15 minutes after arrival for a server to approach to offer water and drinks, we had to wait 15... More

Greeted nicely by Hostess on arrival. Escorted directly to our reserved private dining room. Pre-set as requested. Entire evening's service was exceptional. All guests greatly enjoyed their food selections.
