Description: In 1965, Ruth Fertel mortgaged her home to buy a little steak house in New Orleans named Chris Steak House. After investing her life savings, she proudly added her name to the original. That's how the uniquely name Ruth's Chris Steak House was born. Ruth established this unique restaurant with no restaurant experience, but she vowed to treat every customer like a guest in her own home. And she clearly knew what steak lovers wanted - the very best beef. Today, as always, Ruth's Chris serves only the finest corn-fed Midwestern beef available, broiled in 1800-degree ovens designed by Ruth herself. The steaks are served sizzling on 500-degree plates so every bite is hot and delicious. And while steak is king, the menu also includes expertly executed seafood, lamb, pork, and poultry dishes, as well as classic appetizers, fresh salads, side dishes, and homemade desserts. The award-winning wine list features more than 250 world-class international and domestic labels. Whatever the occasion, Ruth's Chris Steak House is the perfect spot to gather. Unparalleled cuisine, sumptuous surroundings and service that's accomplished yet never fussy - these are the elements of memorable special events.

We've been coming to Ruth's Chris Lahaina for the past 3 years to celebrate my hubby's b-day / our anniversary and we're never disappointed. Steaks are always cooked to perfection, and well seasoned - they melt in your mouth. The sides are gigantic and plenty enough to share. The service is always very personalized, attentive and friendly. He always gets a complimentary b-day dessert, this time it was a chocolate lava cake and it was YUMMMY!
There was construction going on in the area during our visit in Nov '13 - but the location and all of Front Street is really a fantastic area with lots of shops and restaurants.

Not a cheap place, but their steaks are second to none! We love everything about this place (and all the R.C locations). Get the shrimp appetizer! The berries and cream dessert is amazing as is the bread pudding - and all their steaks are divine. Service is top notch. And this franchise makes THE BEST cosmos bar none!

Buyer beware! This establishment does not honor its advertisements. We went in for the 5:00-6:00 $45 three course meal which the waiter made some lame excuse about not being able to honor. The service is very slow and the steaks tasted sour like it had a hint of curry. Nothing like the Ruth Chris steaks or service on the mainland. Just stay away!!!

We've eaten at several Ruths Chris all over the states and this one ranked low on the scale. The service was poor, We were the first ones seated and didn't get a server until after 20 and having to call over the hostess to find out why. We ordered no drinks, one appetizer and two entres that took over and hour to get. And the steak and lamb chops were just mediocre.

My wife and I went to Ruth's Chris Steak House tonight as part of a prepaid musical/dinner excursion. Upon walking into the restaurant, we were immediately greeted, and after giving my name, we were immediately seated in front of other patrons who were waiting. The service was nothing short of excellent, and the meal (petite fillet, Caesar salad, creamed spinach, bread pudding) was as good as I have ever had. The manager came by to check and see if everything was okay. Far exceeding my expectations!!
