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

We went on a date here in January. It was definitely good. The steaks were awesome and we loved the lobster Mac. It is obviously pricey but a nice place to go on a date for a special occasion.

After a terrible experience at St Elmos two days earlier (see that review) 20 of us were seated in a private room just off the main dining area. From the outset the experience was superb. The waitress knew how to handle two tables of 10 men each and answered all questions confidently. The food, starting with numerous seafood appetizers including... More

Had dinner here after the 500. Had a 7:15 reservation but were escorted to the table at 6:45. All staff were very professional and helpful. Even put up with the silly nonsense some of our party was handing out. All dinners were served hot and in a timely manner. Prices were on the high end but that is the price... More
