Everything we had was a true delight. I had stuffed chicken that was amazing as was the crab cakes for the appetizer. My son had steak which he said was the best he ever had. The desert was great as well. I don't normally like expensive restaurants but this one was worth it.

Attended a seminar at this downtown restaurant. The food was absolutely amazing. Although under construction, the staff met the needs of all attending.

I honestly can't say enough. Beautiful experience, went here for the first time for my Birthday. I don't eat out much but when they say their steak sizzles they mean it . Service was superb, we were treated like king and queen . Well worth the money. If you ever get to go you will enjoy. Excellent experience.

This restaurant is a class act! We've never been disappointed with the ambiance, service or food; in fact, we're always impressed! Any occasion will be special when you dine at Ruth's Chris because they make sure of it. On our anniversary, we received a complimentary plate of beautiful chocolate-dipped strawberries, which was a surprise as well as a delightful finish... More

Indiana law precludes restaurants and bars having a "happy hour", but you can have "daily specials". Unfortunately for us, we were at the Ruth's Chris bar on the "Wine" day. But we recovered quickly with a beer and a martini, plus a bar menu prime hamburger and a dining menu appetizer of veal osso buco ravioli to sate our appetites.... More

My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary by going to Ruth's Chris. From the moment we arrived, we were told Happy Anniversary by everyone we came in contact with. Our server, Lafayette, was extremely knowledgeable and gave us great advice when we asked. He was also very attentive without being overbearing. Everything we ate was delicious. At the end... More
