We went to Ruth's for Valentine's Day dinner, food was great, we had the Valentine's Special - set menu, the server with long hair (sorry forgot your name - it was a while ago) very attentive and made great recommendations, the manager came to check on us and was really nice as well.
This is pricey restaurant so we paid a lot but it was worth it.... oh just btw... we wanted to have a coctail at the bar first because the table was not ready even though we had a reservation, they had 2 or 3 bartenders and we had to wait a long time. It was really busy, when we finally got attention of one of them he was very impatient, so I guess restaurant great but bar not so much...

I chose to go to Ruth's while on vacation for my birthday. My sever was just not nice. I realize we all can have bad days, but this guy should not be a waiter. I expressed my disappointment to Mr. Mike [--], the general manager and he took sides with his employee and held the door open for me to leave.
That's a first for me!! Wow after spending nearly three hundred dollars and to be treated so unprofessionally. I will not only never go back but also send a copy this review to my many friends who have summer places in Destin.
Mr. [--], you screwed up.

Sincerely:

Todd A. Zimmerman ASID.

Ruth's Chris in Destin is not worth the "massive" amounts of money you have to spend there. First, if you are going there to celebrate a special occasion it is ruined by people coming in dressed in shorts and T- shirts and bringing in noisy kids. They treat this upscale restaurant like an Applebees. The steaks are very good. We had the filet mignon and it is served on a 500 degree plate in butter so that is interesting. But the side dishes are only mediocre. We had 4 steaks, 3 side dishes and one salad, 3 glasses of wine and split one dessert, which was also only OK (Everything is a la cart) which was over $375 not including tip. I am saving my money to go to Pappas Steakhouse in Dallas next time!

We ate here last night with 2 young boys and 12 yr old girl. We had reservations, and walked right in. Food was great. Waitress was perfect, even calling us by name. Beautiful decor. 6 yr old loved the sax player. Great experience

My husband and I had heard so much about the amazing steaks. First of all I'm not a real steak eater but my husband loves steak. To be nice I've grilled a better steak at home for a lot less on a George Foreman. I do have to say that we had the shrimp that the chef had done in an Asian hot spicy sauce...now that was amazing. I wished I had just ordered that for my meal. Service was good and atmosphere was very nice. I would probably go back give them another try but I would order something other than steak.
