My first visit to Ruth Kris and it was superb!!!! Heaven on a plate. I ordered the lamb, sweet potatoe casserole , creamed spinach and brussel sprouts. My visit was simply outstanding from start to finish. The wait staff hostess and everyone we encountered were simply impeccable! I would drive 10 hours to dine there again. Found Wilmington to be...

I've taken my grown kids a few times. I like the fixed price offerings available during the week. The food is always top notch and so good!! This is one of the nicest Ruth Chris' that I've been to. We have a favorite server, (Kyle) and I love looking out at the Cape Fear River as the sun sets.

I have been to Ruth's Chris a few times. Their food is a lilttle on the "expensive" side, but every delicious and juicy morsel you put in your mouth will ensure you a wonderful taste-bud experience, and justify the slightly higher prices. Everything is served a la carte, so you can mix and match several of your own personal favorites... More

You can't go wrong with Ruth Chris and this location is just perfect! Right in the heart of downtown Wilmington and on the water makes for a romantic dinner! The restaurant has views of the Cape Fear River and Battleship! The service and food has always been great!

Our first visit in a long while, to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday. Service was excellent, as was the food. Filets perfectly cooked, side dishes tasty, salads fresh with tasty dressings, all finished off with amazing desserts. After dinner we visited the bar for drinks and the bartender was fun and engaging. Yes, it's pricey - but I've never been... More

So I just went to the bar to have a glass of wine and quick bite to kill time in Hotel room ... 3 bartenders, nobody told me specials, no set up, interrupt while eating, incredibly below average compared to service level in Charleston

I recently had a meal for the first time at Ruth's Chris. It was a family gathering with around 10 people and we reserved a private room. The restaurant was nice, it was what you would expect for a restaurant of it's caliber. The hostess was not overly friendly and possibly bordering on indifferent. I was surprised at the level...

This restaurant is located inside the Hilton hotel Riverwalk. The bar has a great Happy Hour with special drink and menu items. We did not have reservations, but came in a night which was slow and were seated right away. They do have a special menu with 4 options and the rest is ala carte so it gets pricey. My... More
