We went out for Christmas Eve dinner and it was packed. They had many people working and everyone was very nice to deal with. There was almost a 30 minute wait and no place near the bar to wait. They said that people were done eating, just not leaving.. about 20 minutes after waiting a bunch of people started to... More

I had a quiet Friday evening while traveling thru Madison and was looking for a good meal and a quiet booth in order to get some work reading done. Just down the street from my hotel was the Ruth's Chris Steak House in Middleton. I wandered in at 7:30 PM and was seated right away. My server was actually named... More

Friendly service, great steaks as usual, it did seem a bit crowded the evening I went but was easy to get a seat at the bar where I also ate. Would definitely recommend it.

After hearing all the buzz about how great Ruth's Chris was my wife and I were excited to use a recently obtained $100 gift certificate to offset what we knew was going to be a hefty bill. We were promptly greeted and seated in a comfy booth in a well decorated dining room. The first interaction we had was with... More

This was a fun evening and a rare opportunity for the "team" to gather together with spouses for our company's annual pre-holiday celebration. Ruth's Chris team delivered - comfortable hospitality in the private dining room of the signature Ruth's Chris "tower". The evening started with several plates of appetizers - calamari, mushrooms stuffed with crabmeat, and my favorite - seared... More

Typically very good food, but prices are not family friendly or for those on a food budget. This place is mostly for professional men and women who have expense accounts and don't care what the price of a steak is and top-shelf drinks are a regular staple on their tabs. Local sports figures (coaches, athletes and sports announcers) are regulars.... More

Every time we go here it is the highlight of the evening, the steaks are so good I anticipate the meal for days prior! Many choices in the Madison/Middleton area, but you can never go wrong, and they care to make sure your dining experience is a great one!

My visit to Ruth's Chris Steak House was terrific from the time we entered til the time we left back out of the restaurant, full and very sated from the meal. The ambiance is great and the service is fantastic from all the staff. Attention to detail is at it's highest here. The steaks are the starring attraction here though... More

My husband and I ate here for the first time this past month. The atmosphere was very comfortable with great decor surrounding us. We were treated like we were the only ones there. We both had a delicious steak, yummy bread,and a side salad that was displayed well. The merlot was served in generous portions and was very good. The... More
