Kristen, our server, took special care of us and offered wonderful recommendations. The servings were plentiful and easy to share. The evening was beautiful. Parking was free in a nearby garage.

Family dinner for my wife's birthday, 9 total. Seated shortly after 6pm. Appetizers came fairly quick, but things slowed considerably after that. The wait time for food was really long, didn't start eating until after 7:30. Wife and I both ordered the CLASSIC rib eye steak. Neither was as tender as we expected. Don't think a return visit is in... More

My sweetheart and I went for a pre-Valentines dinner. We enjoyed a very nice meal and the ambience of the restaurant was nice, as well. We both ordered steaks and he and I both agreed they were cooked to perfection. There was enough food for leftovers which we enjoyed the next two days! We ordered desserts and only took a... More

It is always a surprise how flavorful their steaks are. My wife had filet and I had the ribeye. The creamed spinach is our favorite side. We tried the fingerling potatoes were not good and need to be avoided. The farmers market salad was perfect with the meal. The clam chowder was also a good choice. Order French press coffee... More

Wow, just wow. You pay for a premium meal, but you get every bit of the best meal you have had in a year. Meticulous attention to every detail, super fresh fare, great wine paring and a wholesome, clean place make it all memorable. They even brought out a free gourmet mini-birthday cake for my mom! Staff can completely handle... More

We normally go to Ruth Chris to celebrate my grandson and wife's birthday together. The food was excellent but the waitress left a little to be desired for a five star restaurants. She failed to take dishes off the table from previous course and next course had to wait until someone else did it. If I was grading service I... More

We have been to many of the Ruth Chris restaurants, and this is one of my favorites. Happy Hour starts at 4pm, and they have a wonderful terrace. Amazing friendly staff and the food can't be beat.

The story of Ruth's Chris Steak House, the elegant, comfortable and classically American home of the sizzling steak, began in 1965 in New Orleans. Ruth Fertel had a goal of providing a better life for her family. Inspired by her love of people and delight in creating memorable moments, Ruth's lack of business experience mattered little when matched with her spirit and commitment to create a restaurant of which she could be proud.

Ruth's legacy continues today. Regardless of the occasion, we guarantee the best steak house experience you have ever had. Every detail will be perfect. From the moment you arrive until your evening's end, you will feel as though you were the most honored guest in the restaurant.

We look forward to treating you to a world-class experience!
