My nephew was graduating from the US Marines, so we decided to celebrate. If you are a beef lover, you have to check out Ruth Chris steakhouse. I have been to a few of them, but this is my first review of them. This is the nicest Ruth Chris I have been to. The steak was done just perfect, but... More

I mixed it up this time - I normally always order the steak - and ordered the stuffed chicken off the classic menu. First, I love their strawberry bleu cheese pecan salad off the classic menu. It is amazing and what I was really craving when I selected Ruth's for dinner. The stuffed chicken lived up to my server's recommendation... More

If you want fine dining, Ruth Chris is a good option. I have eaten at this one, and one in North County. Very good food. Nice view onto the harbor. Come early to find parking

I've eaten at one in Louisiana before so knew what to expect. Quality food and great service. It ranks high for pricing but is soooo worth it. Live a little and at least try it once!

I went here for a night cap. The bartender was delightful and very attentive. Though I did not eat here, the men next to me at the bar did and the food looks as good as what I have had before when I came a long time ago The only negative is the facilities are stuck in a timewarp it... More

Our experience here was a huge success for the fantastic service our large party received from management and the servers as family and friends celebrated a retirement from the Navy! The servers did an amazing job of making sure every guest had a great experience. The food, of course, goes without saying, was outstanding! Thank you to management and the... More

Would truly give 5 stars except for the quality of the meat. Cannot say enough about the customer service - this was a party of 11 to celebrate our daughter's 39th birthday. Made reservations on Open Table. We were promptly greeted at the door by a very professional perhaps manager or asst manager. We brought our own birthday cake which... More

My boyfriend and I went to celebrate his 30th birthday as it's his favorite restaurant, and rightfully so. When making our reservation online, I noted that we were coming for a birthday celebration (it was optional but they asked if there was a specific occasion). When we checked in, the hostess greeted us warmly and told him 'Happy Birthday.' I... More

We visited for our anniversary and was greeted by our menu congratulating us. Peter was great and the steak was perfect.

Ruth Chris offers quality steaks at expensive prices along the harbor front in San Diego. Standard Ruth Chris dining but a little more casual given the often very casually attired tourist clientele. Nothing out of the ordinary but high quality steakhouse food and service.
