“Nice Graduation Lunch”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We had our daughters graduation lunch here with a party of 25. The service and the food was very good! Most of us had sandwiches and burgers and everyone enjoyed their meals. We also ordered some extra sides and we had way too much food.

“Don't waste your money. Terrible steaks for the price.”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Wanted to treat my family to the best steaks in town, and decided to take them to Ruth Chris based on the reviews I read. I should've done my research better, because we were sorely disappointed in this place. The steaks were flavorless, overcooked, and the presentation was terrible. My brother ordered the t-bone (a $50 steak) that just looked like a slab of meat on a very small plate. You have to pay extra for all of your side items, which were also bland and tasteless. Your steaks are brought out on a small plate--- no garnish, no nothing, just meat--and all of the side items are brought out in separate bowls. Here's a novel idea, why not combine everything onto one plate so that it looks appetizing? Our bill came up to $200 for 3 people and no alcoholic beverages. I would NEVER eat there again. If you want great food for half the price, try Solstice Kitchen. Surprisingly, you'll also get a far superior steak at Liberty Tap Room one block away. Don't waste your money at Ruth's Chris in Columbia, SC.

“Vegetarian at Ruth's Chris”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

I went with a group of carnivores and didn't want a steak. However, I was not disappointed. The vegie plate was fantastic. I chose 3 items from the vegetable choices. They brought me huge portions and I ate as well as the rest of our party. Granted it was a little pricey for spinach, mushrooms and asparagus, but no one goes to Ruth's Chris to save money anyway.

“Breakfast at Ruth's ??”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

This option may only be available because the restaurant is located in a hotel, but the breakfast buffet was comprehensive and well done. I do not know if the menu included Steak and Eggs, but it probably did. They are getting ready to renovate, just because they do so every 5 years. It does not appear shabby at all.

“Great steaks”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Sat at the bar in the lobby of the Hilton. The bartender was very attentive, even offering up free homemade "chips". As always, Ruth's food never fails to impress. As often as I go to the Ruth's in Greenville, I've never had a bad steak, nor improperly cooked; it was the same here. Perfectly cooked steak. Sides always good.
