Although a little out of place where you expect a fresh seafood, this classic steak house chain never disappoints. If seafood is not your thing, Ruth's Chris is for you!

Authentic steaks, tastes of pure succulent beef. With the meat served on 500 degree plates the steak is hot until the last mouthful. The sides are very generous and ideal to share, the sweet potato casserole with the pecan crust was sublime and like nothing I've had before. The steaks are expensive but the best I've ever had. The service... More

Ruth's Chris never disappoints. Their steaks are always on point, tender, juicy and delicious!! The service is impeccable and the restaurant ambience is relaxed. We enjoy dining here everytime we are in Maui. They have fantastic lunch menu's as well. Our favorite is the steak sandwich with fries. Lunch menu is very reasonably priced if you are wanting delicious food... More

Good experience overall. Steaks were very good, not fabulous. Sides were also good. Service was excellent. Ambiance is ok, but more suitable for business than vacation. Prices were very high as you'd expect, but experience a bit short of something like Mastros.

My first visit to Chris Ruth's Steak House. As we were on a beach holiday we were not planning on having "white linen dinners" however, after a traumatic day for my daughter (falling off her bike cycling down the volcano, we felt we should have a good dinner..... and that we did. The girls were late arriving, so my son... More

We had 1x bottle of wine, 2x surf n turf and 1x crab cakes. I personally like Flemings and this seems the cheaper version of if. Lobster wa 'ok' and the 6oz petite filet wasnt great. In all USD 335 (incl 18 % tip) : ridiculous !

So, yes, we beef munchers are environmental vandals. Yes, we should be more environmentally sensitive. But if we are going to be bad carnivores then we should do it in style.. We must respect the beast and be sure to embellish it with quality side dishes and wash it down with fine wine. Here is where it is acceptable to... More

Went to dinner on my own as my travelling companion wanted room service. Was recommended this restaurant as my brother as he tried it due to it being the names of his sisters Ruth and Chris. Was not disappointed. I got the happy hour special. The waiters were very attentive and made me feel welcome even tho I was alone.... More

In 1965, Ruth Fertel mortgaged her home to buy a little steak house in New Orleans named Chris Steak House. After investing her life savings, she proudly added her name to the original. That's how the uniquely name Ruth's Chris Steak House was born. Ruth established this unique restaurant with no restaurant experience, but she vowed to treat every customer like a guest in her own home. And she clearly knew what steak lovers wanted - the very best beef. Today, as always, Ruth's Chris serves only the finest corn-fed Midwestern beef available, broiled in 1800-degree ovens designed by Ruth herself. The steaks are served sizzling on 500-degree plates so every bite is hot and delicious. And while steak is king, the menu also includes expertly executed seafood, lamb, pork, and poultry dishes, as well as classic appetizers, fresh salads, side dishes, and homemade desserts. The award-winning wine list features more than 250 world-class international and domestic labels. Whatever the occasion, Ruth's Chris Steak House is the perfect spot to gather. Unparalleled cuisine, sumptuous surroundings and service that's accomplished yet never fussy - these are the elements of memorable special events.
