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.

“Amazing Fish”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

We came for Valentines Day and I usually get the steak but I was craving Fish. This was one of the best entree's I have ever received at this restaurant. The fish with the mash potato's was such a great combination. I had ordered white rice and it was terrible... crunchy rice... that was the only down fall of the evening. other than that everything was great. Service was awesome. We always end up with the same server. Highly suggest getting the fish here but the steak is always good.

It was our third year in a row to Maui and Ruth's Chris is at the top of the list. They have a great staff, awesome food, and great atmosphere. Always have our table ready at scheduled reservation. Just got back home yesterday and already planning next trip to Maui and dinner reservations.

“Still among the best”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

I've reviewed this restaurant before, calling it consistently excellent, and I am not changing my mind. Though pricey, the quality of the fare is always outstanding. The forte is steaks, but the seafood and lamb also get rave reviews from the other diners around my table. One of the great things about Ruth's Chris in Wailea is the relaxed, though still professional, atmosphere and service. I've been to other Ruth's Chris Steakhouses that were stuffy for being overly formal.

“Special Treat!”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

The restaurant was really busy(call for reservations) but at no time did we feel unattended to. Word to the wise.......sides are huge! At my request for a suggestion for a glass of wine, I now have a new favorite Pinot Noir, Meiomi. Great meal, service and great find!
