Took family to a nice steak dinner, first time at one for Ruth's branches

Staff was very friendly. Seating wasn't ideal, but too crowded and noisy for my taste

Food was good, would not call it great. Steak was good, moist and well cooked. Not a fan of using butter in coating but was ok. Sides were also good, not great. Family enjoyed their evening

Nice option but I personally the steak at some other locations.

My husband and I dined at this restaurant on Friday evening.
Our servers name was Karen, she was great, attentive but not intrusive.
We ordered 2, 11 oz filet, Au gratin potato, fire roasted corn.
Both filet were cooked perfectly. Mine medium, my husbands, medium rare. The sear on them was beautiful.
I ordered a Raspberry Rosemary Cosmo which I would also give a thumbs up to.
The cost of the meal came to $144 including tax but not inclusive of gratuity.
There is valet parking although you don't have to as you can park outside other places and walk if you wish.
We sat in a booth & made a reservation 2 weeks ahead of time (probably not necessary for a 7.30pm sitting but I didn't want to take any chances)
Would go again.

Actually no draft anything. Just run of the mill bottled beers. All steak houses should have dark beer on draft. The food? Good, as always, the service generally good though our waitress seemed in a hurry to be away from our table of four. Lots of good steak houses, this is one. Still, the Guiness would be welcome.

A spectacular dinner including Caesar salad, wedge salad, filet, shrimp. All entrees served perfectly. Service was extraordinary. The one issue is a lack of parking. Multiple restaurants utilize a parking valet. The valet parks the cars down the block & across the street.
