Description: Welcome to Ruth's Chris Steak House. Look around. Have a seat. If this is your first visit, prepare to taste the greatest steak you've ever eaten. As founder Ruth Fertel used to say, "If you've ever had a filet this good, welcome back." We take steak seriously, but we're also serious about making sure you have a good time. So you won't find the stodgy, uptight attitude you might find at other steak houses. Feel free to laugh out loud. Stay a while. Experience the sizzle. Above all, enjoy yourself.

We have dined at various Ruth's Chis restaurants in many cities. Each has never failed to be superlative. The service, atmosphere, FOOD have all been exceptional. This past Sunday, we celebrated our anniversary and we were totally pleased. My highest recommendations!

To start with we had reservations at 8PM. We got there on time and the place was not full at all for a Friday night,. Party of six with one of them being a child. Everyone order their steaks, salads, and sides. While we waited for our salads to be served the manager walks and starts a conversation. He informs the child at our table that he would get a free desert. We got our salads which was very good, the steaks were ok, just not up to the standards of other Ruth Chris places we had dined at before. Several of the steaks were not that tender. We did not hear back from the waitress till it was about Desert time for the child. She really talked up the Bannana Foster the flaming desert. She continue to get the child amazed about it. Well he orders that. Ok it was supposed to be free. She done the presntation and the child ate about two bites of it. Ok we finish and we get the bill, there we are being charged for the desert $19.95. I told her I thought it was going to be free and she stated that the desert had to be served to two people to order it. We were not told that when the order was placed. Besides no one else wanted to even order desert especially that. So away she told us that we had got one free and charged for the second one we did not order. We did not argue, but they scam us over a free desert for the kid and then talked him into ordering that. Folks do not waste your time there, it is not worth it.

To pay this price in Durham, N.C. for a steak is outrageous. And it's not even that great. The last time I was there, two people in our party had to send back their steaks. And we're not complainers.

This is the first and only Ruth's Chris Steak House I've been to and couldn't believe how delicious my steak was. Perhaps a tad overpriced but very convenient if you're staying at the Hilton Garden Inn. Bar is fun for single diners and staff is friendly and helpful. Don't fill up on the warm bread!

At a cost of about $450.00 for dinner for 4... it's the kind of place that most would go to for a special celebration...We were celebrating a friends milestone BD, and she wanted to go to Ruth Chris.....and from what we could gather many of the nearby tables were also celebrating something special too. I'm always intruiged by the fact that when you order a steak at a cost of $38 and up the sides don't come with it, ...Those are extra roughly at $8 to $10 a side...(ouch). They do suggest you order only 1 per person and have everyone share....The steak was cooked to perfection (which it should be) service was good (not great didn't help waiters changed shifts in the middle of dinner)..and the sides are large.... In the end.you get what you expect from Ruth Chris, a great steak, good service and a big bill.....
