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.

“Over rated in my opinion”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Our family of 4 ate dinner one evening during our June 2013 stay. First visit at a Ruth's Chris. Wife ordered crab cakes and enjoyed them. My two daughters and I ordered steaks and we were very unimpressed. When you pay $47 for a filet, you expect it to come out very soft and tender and their filet and my ribeye were on the tough and chewy side and not that tasty. They do serve one of the best cheesecakes I've ever tasted but we were disappointed to pay so much money to be unsatisfied with their supposedly specialized steaks.

“Best filet. Rib eye okay”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

Truly the best filet I have ever had. Lobster tail perfectly seasoned. Rib eye was good, but thin. Plan on $100.00 + per person.

“Great meal”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. The service was top notch and the food was very well presented and cooked. If you are looking for a little bit of luxury at a reasonable price I would highly recommend this great restaurant.

“If you want the best steak ever go here!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

The quality of the food and service was top notch! The ambiance is a bit stuffy and conservative and the prices are high. The menu is limited especially if you aren't a huge meat eater. Excellent for those seeking excellent steak-cooked to perfection -the flavour was amazing!

“Not as good as other restaurants in the area.”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

We have been to many Ruth Chris restaurants and must say we were disappointed in both the Lahaina & Wailea locations. The food was not very good and very costly. Both times we did not have the best wait staff we expected at a Ruth Chris. I would say skip this restaurant..
