“Value Proposition”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Our visit last week indicated that prices at Ruth's have caught, and eventually outrun the quality of the food/service. We have been going to RC since the '70s and enjoy the food, service and atmosphere, yet they seem to have not been keeping up with the times by raising prices in excess of the quality. What do we gain by paying 20-30% more for wine compared to other Destin restaurants? Our surf & turf was nothing exceptional, but was okay - not for the prices paid, though. The reason we would return would be familiarity with the brand and past satisfaction, but perhaps there is something better out there.

“Check out the bar”
Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

Love this restaurant. Ruth's food and service are always excellent, but this location stands out for its atmosphere, architecture and decor. Everything is interesting and gorgeous, including the front wine room and back patio bar. Definitely check out the newly added indoor bar--awesome midcentury modern vibe with a cozy feel. Beautifully done.

“Always the Best”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

If you have been to a Ruth's you know. If you have never been set yourself for a steak that will match any others. The building is elegant and the staff are top of the line. If you are celebrating something you get a special treat.

“McGuire's Has Comparible Steaks for 1/2 the price”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Outstanding Steak, fish, appetizers, spinach, and wine - but way overpriced compared to many other Destin restaurants. If you are lookiing for 5-star service and presentation for a special occasion, Ruth Chris will suffice - but if you want great steak go to McGuire's - I personally think McGuire's beats them for 1/2 the price. Also, we went here for an anniversary and had a reserved booth along the wall which was cozy, but many guests were crammed into small tables in the middle of the restaurant with little privacy which is very uncool for a restaurant this expensive.
