“Expensive but good quality”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

A great steak costs money but some with expense accounts can afford it . The side orders are a trap to get you to buy your vegetables etc but if you don't have to pay then heck order the lot . Service is very good .Note to self ....beware of per dinner cocktails they can double the pain of your,Check . Quality but at a high price. If you are not paying then I do recommend having the filet Oscar( with crab meat) it really is awesome . So enjoy if your expense account is paying otherwise make sure your bank account is healthy and ready for a big hit !

“Disappointing”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

We had not been to Ruth's Chris for several years but our prior experiences had been very good so we were hoping for the best. It was not to be. The steaks were a little above average but many restaurants in the area have much better (Hondo's, Flemings, Buckhead's). The service was average at best. The atmosphre was loud and there didn't appear to be a dress code (the party at the next table were dressed in clothes that looked like they had just finished a golf match or shopping at the mall). We chose Ruth's Chris because we wanted a special meal in a classy atmosphere and what we got was an overpriced meal with an indifferent waitstaff in an atmosphere akin to Red Robin.

“Steaks at Ruths Chris”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

The food at Ruth's Chris is great, as is the service. I enjoy the food and the service, and we can always count on an enjoyable evening, but it seems to be a touristy type of restaurant and I don't get the feeling that it's a Midlothian place. I prefer to dine at other Midlothian restaurants.

“Not what it used to be”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

The atmosphere is still super but the food and service is mediocre. High $$. The bar there is the only spot we will frequent now.

“For a special dinner”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you just want a steak dinner, you don't need to spend the money to dine at Ruth's Chris. But if you want something special, this is the place to go. Food is plentiful and excellent, and the steaks are practically fork tender, no matter what cut you order. The wine list is lengthy and the wait staff knowledgeable and happy to make a recommendation. Service has been excellent each time we've been there, and if you mention that you are there for a birthday or anniversary, they will do something nice for you, such as a glass of champagne or a yummy dessert. Save room for the bread pudding!
