Ruth Chris' has been remodeled into a more modern decor. Personally, I preferred the former more traditional look. Previously, when you entered the front door, you were hit with this wonderful smell that just made you drool. Now, that welcoming smell is gone. I didn't really notice any smell at all. We always order the steaks for our entrees and... More

I always order exactly the same items so I could say I am able to compare different restaurants of Ruth's. Good: - service. Dan was very welcoming, helpful and attentive.... More

In all the times we have dined at Ruth's Chris, we have never been disappointed. Steaks are some of the best and the cremebrulee dessert is awesome.

This was the best steak i have ever had in my life!! We participated in the devour downtown, and ordered from that menu which was less than normal price. I ordered the ribeye, house salad, creamed spinach and cheescake desert. Far exceeded my expectations as far as flavor and presentation. The steak was seasoned and cooked to perfection, then served... More

You can never go wrong at Ruth's Chris, my son and I always get the stuffed chicken and my husband gets bone in rib eye. All I can say is never a bad experience.

Great dinner and ambience-the steak is excellent and the service is some of the best downtown Indianapolis. Lettuce wedge was excellent. Great place for business and pleasure.

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.
