Description: They call Ruth’s Chris founder Ruth Fertel, the First Lady of American Restaurants. But before there were 130+ locations serving 25,000 steaks a day, there was a fearless single mother of two who tore an ad from the local newspaper that read “steak house for sale” and thought, “I can do that”. The year was 1965. It’s a great American story of how one person- a woman, at a time and in a business dominated by men took an idea and made it sing. What Ruth lacked in experience she made up in hard work. But it wasn’t just sixteen – hour days that made her steakhouse an icon. Ruth had the divinely simple, yet uncommonly magical way of touching people with genuine kindness- the way food and love and people just fit together in her hometown of New Orleans where the legend was born. in 1976, there was fire at the original Chris’ Steak House, destroying the restaurant and leaving Ruth in a difficult situation. But Ruth was smart, and she learned to trust her instincts. Ruth plowed forward and within seven days she was back in business in a new location just four blocks away on Broad Street in New Orleans. Tired of guests calling her Chris but not wanting to lose to loyal customer base who knew the restaurant by it’s longtime name, Ruth renamed her restaurant “Ruth’s Chris Steak House”…and the rest is history.

The staff at Ruth's Chris need special recognition for their amazing service and attention to detail. The steak was amazing. Best meal in Charlotte. They prepared our steaks to perfection. We also ordered al la carte and shared the sides family style. You are treated like a VIP.

Great steaks and the calamari is arguably the best in Charlotte. Two locations (Center City) or South Park.

This was one of the best dinners I've had in a long time. Talk about VIP...everything was delish! From the time we gave the keys to the valet it was nothing but class. Out standing Wine & Desserts. WOW

“Just ok”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

For an upscale steak house the service was so-so. My husbands rib eye was under-done and both of our steaks were swimming in lots of butter (not very appealing). When the bill came there were two dinner tabs in there. We told the server and her comment was "so you don't want to pay for both?" I'm sure she was jesting but high quality service to details...it was not.
