A steak sizzleling on a hot plate, you can smell the butter, so you can imagine the taste. That is how they make a great steak serve to your senses. Always been great, but a little pricey so I have to ask my wife to take me there on a special occassion. Over all, always a good experience and I never go home hungry. follow these shoes through their doors and you will find one of the best steaks you tasted.

“First Rate!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This was our first visit to a Ruth's Chris Steak House even though there is one about a minute from my residence on Long Island. Everything about the experience was top notch. The service was deliberate and professional (none of this "Hi, my name is Waldo and I'll be your server tonight" nonsense) with knowledge able wait staff. We did not wait for a table but chose to eat in the bar because he appeared without a reservation. The drinks were delivered promptly and as ordered. The bread was hot and delicious. My entree of the New York Strip was cooked exactly as ordered and brought tableside on a sizzling platter. My wife enjoyed the barbeque shrimp which I had the pleasure of trying. It was mouthwatering! We opted out of dessert but are sure it would have been first rate as well. I recommend this steak house to folks who truly enjoy fine food and are willing to spend a little more than normal.

“A favorite place for a great dinner”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Hands down our favorite restaurant in the area. Always guaranteed a great meal. Steak and sides are always perfectly done. Service is always good. This is our go to place if we want a good meal. Try their Ruth's Classics specials. Soup or salad, Main course, side and dessert for 39.95 or 49.95 depending on entree choice. A great deal and always fills us up completely if not more.

“Always a Great Steak”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Everytime we go to Ruth's Chris, the steaks are cooked to perfection. The quality of the beef is always the finest and the servers are very attentive. It is always a fine dining experience at Ruth's Chris.

“Great service, mouthwatering steaks”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Just writing about this fine dining establishment is making my mouth water.
The superb quality of Ruth's Chris steaks is widely known, and honestly, the quality doesn't seem to vary despite the location of the restaurant. What puts the Fairfax place above its competitors is the level of service you can count on getting there. Regardless of how crowded it may be, diners are made to feel feel as though the table is theirs for the evening. Servers and staff make no effort to turn the table over quickly like so many other restaurants.
The service is wonderful and the steaks are like none you'll get east of the grasslands in Kansas.
