Visited Ruthie D's a couple of weeks ago and it was Fabulous. Went again last night to see if they were consistent. They were. Food,service and atmosphere were again excellent. This is a top-notch place and our new favorite at the lake!

Dinner here last evening with approximately 13 people & I don't think one of us had a good meal. Either steaks way too done when they had ordered medium rare, specials were thin & dry, pasta dishes were very dry. Just all around not good food. Our waitress was very good & pleasant but the meal was not her fault.... More

Enjoyed a very relaxing dinner with a wonderful view of the lake. Our waitress Lynn did a great job making sure we never had to ask for anything. The service and food was excellent!

What a great place for dinner! The staff is fantastic! The service is excellent! and the food is fantastic! Their menu has great variety. The view of the lake is beautiful. If you can, when making reservations, ask for a table near the window. They also have a screened deck for dining. Unfortunately, at the time, the heat index was... More

Great service in the bar for happy hour! The server was very attentive and served us quickly. Our glasses were never empty! The appetizers were delicious and quite varied. The dining room (we did not sit here) had an amazing view of the lake. Stunning.

Our food was amazing. My wife had their whitefish, and I had their pork tenderloin. We shared their bread pudding for desert, and it competes with the bread pudding from the former Harvest restaurant in St. Louis - which was a regional favorite. Our server, Lynn, was excellent!

Had a wonderful dinner with a beautiful view of the lake! Our service and food was exceptional! Not used to that at the Lake! The bread pudding on their dessert is worth every calorie-yum! Our server, Lynn, was great!

Really enjoyed the happy hour options at Ruthie D's. Food was good and service was solid as well. As long as this place produces good food and service, it should keep folks on Horseshoe Bend. Good visit today!!

We went to this restaurant for the first time on the last night of our week vacation. We were totally surprised by the nice venue, and having gone by it hundreds of times in our yearly trips to The Lake wished we had stopped there earlier. The hostess was very nice and we got our reserved table quickly. The waitress... More
