“What an unexpected treat!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We were very pleased to see the Ruth's Chris Steak House adjacent to our hotel. We had planned a special evening out to attend the Michael Feintein Concert in Chicago. How great it was to be able to enjoy a relaxed dinner and still get to the theater on time! Our server was pleasant and attentive. The only drawback-I felt like I was in hiding when we were seated in the back room of the restaurant without another diner in sight. It was quite sometime before any other patrons arrived. The food was up to the usual high standards you expect at Ruth's Chris.

“Excellent and only OK compare to other Ruth's Chris restaurants....”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Very good and not exceptional. My steak was no better than I normally have at other restaurants. Our daugther's steak was much better.

“Bar menu”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

I had the Black & Blue Salad and it was excellent. Came to Florida Ruth Chris and they didn't even have it on the menu. They tried to make it but it was nothing like this one.

“The absolute besat steakhouse on the North Shore”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Forget about Morton's, Gibson's , Wildfire and others. This is THE BEST steakhouse in the area, and the other Ruth's Chris throughout the country are definitely THE TOPS.
Located on Highway 41 inside the Renaissance Hotel, this warm and inviting restaurant features the best staff overall. From busboys to servers to bartenders to Managers (particularly Scott), you are always treated expertly. Oops! I forgot Peter, the Parking Maestro, who escorts all the women into the restaurant.Nice touch!

Now, as to the food, what can I say? The cuts of meat are always tender, perfectly cooked, and well worth it. Try the tenderloin if there are 2-3 in your party. Can be split with more than enough for everyone. Dinner comes on sizzling hot plates, aided and abetted by steamed broccoli or asparagus or creamed spinach.
And their frites/ To die for.

“Fantastic: best meal I have had in the area”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

Nothbrook, Illinois is practically my home from home due to business trips to the area. I have eaten at almost everywhere it is possible to eat in the area and can say without question that Ruth's Chris is one of the very best places you will find to eat.

This is a large US-wide chain but don't let that put you off as it maintains very high standards across the board and prides itself on being something of a high-class chain (with prices to match but you get what you pay for).

The steak was magnificent, the staff were attentive and super-professional and the restaurant itself was very classy. The steakhouse is inside a hotel, which I have to admit doesn't look that inviting from the outside but don't let that put you off as Ruth's transports you to a different world inside.

This is an expensive place to eat and as such works well for business trips and special occasions or if you have a great expense budget.
