Normally a very reliable top quality steak house. This one started out just as you would expect. A great welcome form some lovely and delightful girls at front. Wait staff made it feel more like a diner than a fine restaurant. Fast service but flippant, ultra informal and uncaring waiters. They were saved by an excellent kitchen who cooked up the typical top quality steaks, au gratin potatoes and the best bread pudding ever! All said still a great restaurant but the wait staff should be trained to,live up to the top quality kitchen, rather than coast on it.

I have eaten here three times. Two times the food was good, last nite the steak was very gritty.

Great service, great atmosphere, probably an off night.

Since there are not many high end places to eat in the area, this is a relatively great place. I wish there was more competition on this level in the area.

We have been several times to Ruth Chris and evey time we have had a great experience. The Ahi Tuna appetizer was spectacular as was the main entree of filet mignon with a blue cheese crust. Of course the chocolate cake to finish the meal was warm and yummy. The atmosphere is wonderful so long as you sit in the main dining room, the back room looks more like a banqueet hall. service was attentive but not overly friendly.
overall a great night.

You know how sometimes your expectations are "will it be as nice if I go there again since the first time was phenomenal?", well it was. We went there again for our anniversary and the wait staff was as attentive as the first time. The food was delicious, again, and the drinks were surprisingly generous. I had the Bloody Mary. Served nicely and on the spicy side, just perfect. My husband had a Bourbon Manhattan, also a nice sized cocktail. They ran a Chef's special, which we chose with different entrees and the rib eye, petite filet and shrimp, scallops and lobster tail were done to perfection. Our desserts came on a platter with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate. What's not to like! I would consider Ruth Chris Steakhouse for any special occasion. On the pricy side but beautiful and well worth the money.
