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.

“Another uppity eatery that does not care about locals”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

Geez do I have to be a rich tourist to get someone to help me? It would probably be helpful! Local waiters more attentive to mainlanders. Probably for bigger tips?too many glasses and just how much silverware does a person need? Junky hostess and not so memorable food. Location ideal for a place like this but not exactly a hit with the locals.forgot what I ate. Not a good place for kids. Too many things like utensils and glasses to worry about. Not exactly family-Oriented. Take your date anywhere but here

From Sweet Potatoe casserole to steaks to creamed spinach, everything was delicious and required sharing. We enjoyed our evening here. And felt very well taken care of.

“Expensive and just ok”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

The steaks are over priced, but of good quality and cooked to order. The sides are loaded in cream, butter and rich sauces. They can make spinach unhealthy, but mist of all the prices are way too high. The smart, no make that, think they are smart set are seen in large numbers at Ruth's, I guess becauuse of the price.
