We sat in the covered patio and the view and meal were fabulous. Had a delicious ahi tuna appetizer creatively prepared. Also had a pork and fish dish. .Both cooked perfectly. Nice reasonable wine selections too. Wait staff was very attentive. Five stars!

“Delicious food, great ambience”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We happened upon Ruthie D's, and really enjoyed our experience. The steak was very tender and flavorful, and the baked potato was fluffy and moist, and big enough to feed an army! Good menu selection--there were fish, sandwich, and pasta options available, as well as seafood and steaks. We appreciated our efficient and very friendly server, Lucretia. The view from the outside dining was wonderful.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

We come to the Lake several times a year and always have Ruthie D.s on our list of restaurants we want to visit. Never have been disappointed in our food and almost always very pleased. Chef Pierre is willing to do anything to please and service by Lucretia was just what we needed when our family visited this weekend - pleasant and helpful. Nice view of the lake either inside or on the screened in porch. We don't think you will be disappointed! RCTDAF

“Average”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Went there with family of 5 on Thursday July 24 and both the food and service were average. The best thing was the views from the screened in deck. There are better choices in our opinion.

“Best restaurant at the lake!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

Ruthie D's is our favorite restaurant at the lake. We visit the lake four to five times a year and we always eat at least once here. If we only have one night, Ruthie D's is where we go. The food is outstanding. The chef is truly talented. We have never had a bad meal or even an ok meal. It's always amazing. The wait staff is fantastic and the service is top notch. When we eat at other restaurants we always comment how Ruthie D's is the best around.

You will have a great meal at Ruthie D's!!
