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.

Food is fantastic. Above exceptional, hence the 5 stars...otherwise it would have been 4. The service was just okay. No one bothered to check with us to see how our steaks were cooked or if we needed anything until we were basically finished. My daughter ordered the steak one way and we told the waiter, we can always cook more if needed, I'd rather have to recook a little then have it over cooked....no one checked to make sure it was perfect. (IT WAS..but a little attention means a great deal for a $200. ticket for 2)
RUTH CHRIS never fails to deliver. The meal was fantastic.
We chose to eat outside on the deck overlooking the small mall area (closed) as it was a beautiful evening. The inside felt cold and I would have needed a sweater which I didn't have. The deck was wonderful.
Highly recommend Ruth Chris when you just need a great meal.
Worth the money.

We have been to other Ruth's Chris and have had moderately good success. This Ruth's Chris was very enjoyable. At first our steaks were under cooked. We told the bus person who said he would tell our waiter. We waited for a substantial amount of time before someone finally took our steak back. The second time the steak was perfect. It was the right temperature and very well seasoned. Also, because we waited so long, they also had to give us new veggies because ours were cold. The waiter apologized profusely and said that there was no excuse for what happened. They did give us a free dessert for the problem. It was delicious. I feel that we were treated properly and would definitely eat there again when we return to Maui.

We left our teens at the Resort and walked to Ruth's Chris two nights of our stay to sit at the bar and enjoy the 5:00 -6:00 pm dinner deal of salad, entrée, dessert for $49. Fabulous filet as always from a Ruth's Chris! Mike the bartender was a great person to talk to! Enjoyed our conversation! Go CAVS!!

we stopped here one night and had a long wait for dinner. we had drinks and an appetizer at the bar and then had dinner. The food was enjoyable enough but typical food found at steakhouses around the country. Not worth going to in Wailea when there are a number of other interesting options nearby.

Would recommend to go to happy hour or book an early dinner. Specials apply and the big meal was much easier to digest. Order a drink first at the bar, then proceed to your table.
