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.

“Dependably excellent steak”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Make sure you reserve a booth. We ate early as we were diving the next morning. We had onion soup, caesar salad, stuffed mushrooms and a 8 ounce filet. The french fries were also wonderful. Everything was excellent, the steak cooked perfectly and the service exemplary.

“Very Good Dinner”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

My husband and I travel a lot and Ruth's Chris is one of our favorite Steakhouses to visit. We try to visit whenever we are in and area that has one. The Ruth's Chris in Wailea is at the Shops at Wailea next to the Grand Wailea Resort. It is in a corner location, easy to locate and with lots of shopping around. We were a bit early for our reservation but were seated promptly. The feel was a bit more casual than some of the Ruth's Chris's that we have been to but that is typically the case in Hawaii we've found. Our server was good...his assistant was excellent and never stopped running around all night! The food was very good and the atmosphere nice. We also visited the Ruth's Chris in Lahaina while were in Maui and found that one to be slightly better for food quality. However...this was definitely good and I would return.

“Superb Happy Hour”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

We ordered one order of Osso Bucco raviolli - garlic and spinach, and incredibly delicious. Six pieces of pasta arrived! My wife had the H3 Chardonnay, and I the red Diamond Merlot - perfect accompaniment. Our first time in Ruth Chris', and we will be back, for happy hour at least.

“Happy Hour”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We arrived promptly at 5PM when Happy Hour started and to our amazement 5 of the 6 stools were already reserved (only one occupied stool)-no table seating. Two of the stools remained empty waiting the bartender's friends for at least 20 minutes-they had soup, one wine and one glass of water. We managed to finally get 2 stools for our party of 3 and did have good drinks and great food. You may be luckier than us in which case, it is a very good spot but the bar with only seating for a total of 6 people is beyond small.
