Perfect Anniversary Evening
We visit this Ruth's Chris Steakhouse a couple times a year, usually for a special occasion. As in the past the service was outstanding and the food perfectly prepared. We also received special recognition of our Anniversary celebration with a wonderful table, terrific scenic view, table decorations, a succulent complimentary dessert, and staff that were very attentive but not intrusive. Ruth's Chris is obviously on the high side of price, but worth every penny for special experience they provide. We'll be back.

Quality Steak in Knoxville
We live nearby, so visit here regularly. Ruth's Chris does what they do very well: steaks and sides. The wine list is comprehensive as well. We both had steaks with potato sides and dessert, plus a bottle of red wine and cocktails. The service was very attentive and pleasant. Food quality is predictable in the good sense of the word: Steaks cooked perfectly and plated well, wine quality is good, sides are nicely done. It's hard to beat a Ruth's Chris steak for quality. Prices are what you would expect for this quality of steak. The Knoxville space is nice and open and has a view of the river area from most tables and booths.

A#1 as we can depend on ...
We are regulars at Ruth's and have been to 15 or 16 around the country and the family agrees this is Top 3 for sure. We never get a bad meal and you always know you are getting top notch at Ruth's bit this one was even a cut above. We live in Michigan and the one in (Troy) has disappointed slightly lately so we were thrilled to return to the high quality we love. The food, service, and atmosphere was excellent. When traveling for Easter we were very very pleased with our experience at the Knoxville location.
Treat yourself and your family, you will be happy you did!

Great steak on the river
We dine at Ruth's Chris often. The steaks are "predictable" in the good sense of the word. The wine list is outstanding and the service is always good. The Knoxville location has a nice river view. My wife had a ribeye and I had a filet, plus sides. We started with cocktails and also had a very nice limited red wine. Service is always attentive and friendly. If you want a steak in downtown Knoxville, this is the place to get it.

Love Ruths Chris
This restaurant has been a constant for us each year my son was at UT. Service and food always perfect. We had his graduation party here last week and it did not disappoint.

And it touched all of our hearts. Hats off to such a caring staff! You are amazing!

Where is was the service I paid for
We have eaten there several times in the past and the whole experience couldn't have been better. On our last visit we decided to celebrate a birthday with friends. The food was superb as always however our waitress was terrible. Honestly, it was some of the worst service we've ever received anywhere. But it happens. We'll go back and I'm sure the experience will be what it always was.

My wife and I celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary on the 11th of June. We chose the three course dinner, and a great bottle of wine, recommended by our server. Everything met our expectations. We thought the service was prompt, but not intrusive We will be back.

Ruth Chris is a great dining experience in general no matter where you go. You can always count on Ruth Chris to set the standard. Open Table is a convenient way to secure reservations in a timely and efficient manner

Another great meal at Ruth's
We have been to Ruth's Chris several times, and it is never a disappointment! I actually do not eat red meat, so I usually order a chicken or seafood dinner. Even though this is a "steak" house, I can't imagine having a better chicken or seafood dinner anywhere else. Everything is sooooo good...the appetizers, the salads, the entrees, the wine and the dessert. It can be a pricy night, but is well worth saving up for!!
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
a regular visit
Every time I visit my sister in Knoxville, we make a trip to Ruth's Chris. We always get the same thing, but that's ok! We love the chop salad and the petit filet with the blue cheese crust. We like to sit so we can overlook the river and it's always a warm and inviting place. The service is excellent and very attentive. We'll be back the next time I visit.

Great steak in Knoxville
Ruth's Chris does what they do very well -- steak and wine. We've been there many times and have always had a good experience. The Knoxville location is in a nice space and the wait staff is attentive and engaged. Recommended for anyone that wants a good steak in Knoxville.

Excellent as always!
Ruth's Chris in Knoxville never fails to disappoint! They are very consistent in the quality of their food, outstanding service, and appealing atmosphere. Still the best steak in Knoxville!

A nice evening
My husband and I enjoyed our "experience" at the Ruth Chris location in Knoxville. When dining here they make it feel like a Special Occasion. Our table was wonderful and the view was Great!

Our Special Spot
Since the closing of Regas Resturant Ruth Chris has become our special spot for dining out. It has an awesome view, great service and the food is always superb !
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was wonderful and we found it very delightful to receive food that wasn't just lukewarm...but was actually hot and stayed that way for most of the time we were eating! I had enough for leftovers and it was as good as the night we were there. Thanks very much for a wonderful meal!

I took my son and some friends to Ruth Chris for his 40th b'day. Because he had been hiking in the Smokes that day and was late returning to Knoxville, our dinner date was extremely late...9:15. Our lateness did not affect anything at the restaurant, however. We were treated with care and patientence. The service and food was excellent. Never did we feel rushed even though we were the last to leave the restaurant.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The steaks and the service were great as usual. The tempura onion rings were especially good.The free dessert for our Anniv. was a nice touch. The waiter also took our picture and provided us with a printed photo within minutes. It was a great experience.

Best Ruth's Chris's I have ever bee
The entire meal was perfect from the food to the service to the wine to the view. Absolutely outstanding. We both had steaks; me a petite filet and my son the 16 oz ribeye and both were cooked to perfection. For an appetizer we had the ahi tuna which was nothing short of amazing, the sides of mushrooms and spinach were delicious and my son had a creme brulee for dessert that was classic and delicious. The wine list for wines by the glass was extensive and I started off with a " raspberry rosemary cosmo" - one of the best cocktails I have ever had. We were treated like royalty and next time I go to visit in Knoxville I can't wait to come here again.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
excellent place to dine
Service is extraordinary! So attentive and prompt. Absolutely delicious meals every visit.

As always the food and service
As always the food and service was excellent, but a local college game was going on and the bar scene was a bit more enthusiastic than normal.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I celebrated
My husband and I celebrated his retirement at Ruth's Chris. We had an excellent time. The food was fantastic as expected, the staff was very friendly, excellent services. I highly recommend and we will continue to visit them.

A special evening
We were there to celebrate a belated 80th birthday for a dear family friend and his wife. The staff was simply incredible, service was "next level" and the food, as always, delicious! I lopve this place and will return often when in Knoxville!
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This dining experience was great. The atmosphere was quiet and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Thanks to online reservations there was no wait and the waitress attended to us promptly. The steaks were amazing and the wine list is superb. This was a great first experience at this restaurant and will definitely return.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
My husband and I chose this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we were very pleased with the atmosphere, service, décor and the food. We will definitely return again.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The downside was they were
The downside was they were out of two diners' beverage selections. We arrived a few minutes prior to the reservation and there was really nowhere to sit and wait as the bar was jammed. The food was especially good . This is one superior chain!

Love our visits to Ruth's
Had another wonderful dinner at Ruth's Chris. I don't eat beef myself, so you'd think I wouldn't be drawn to a "steak house," but it is so much more than steak. Although I am sure the steaks are amazing, and my husband would agree, the seafood and poultry choices are always some of the best meals of my life. On this visit I had the scallops on the specials menu. They were literally some of the best I've ever had. And the stuffed chicken breast which is always on the menu is one of my favorite all time dishes.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Even if you've been to Ruth's
Even if you've been to Ruth's Chris before, you should check this one out. Great location, and giant patio.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food...some room to improve
Wine service excellent, but blinding sun at beginning of meal ... staff declined to lower blinds or pull drapes....and, inexplicably, no bread plates despite 7-10 visits to table by staff with bread sitting on tablecloth(they failed to notice or correct). However, food was worth returning for.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Special gift on my wife's day.
First i will start with the staff who was fantastic! We arrived at 4pm for our 4:30 reservations with the intent of sitting at the bar for a few drinks before dinner. We were greeted and sat at the bar for 15 min or so, then ushered to our table. We sat across from a young father and his 9 yo daughter who we later found out was celebrating her birthday as was my wife. We made light conversation with the father and young lady and wished her a very happy birthday. The waiter caught wind of this and unprompted kneeled beside the little girl and told her that it was her special day and she could be assured she would be treated like the princess she was; he did not disappoint! He made that little girls night and in doing so he made ours.

Good New/Bad News
It was a fine dining experience with one exception. My dining companion ordered a 16 oz, ribeye, rare. It was cooked perfectly. However, it had a large amount of gristle throughout, which was totally unexpected, given that Ruth's Chris takes pride in the quality of the beef it servess. . The evening and the food would have been very enjoyable except for the quality of the ribeye. We felt that at the prices charged the steak should have been tender and better-trimmed to eliminate the gristle.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Chain with a great location on the TN river. Service is outstanding with the perfect amount of Southern Charm in the staff!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Never a flaw
Food was exceptional…. I had the wild salomn… amazing. Everything is prepared exactly the way you want it!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I wanted to celebrate our first anniversary at a nice upscale restaurant and Ruth's Chris was the perfect spot. Welcomed with a friendly smile when we walked in the door and the friendly service never stopped from then until we left. Waiter was extremely knowledgeable on menu and wine list and even brought some sample wine for us to try of which was his recommendation. Ruth's Chris provided a beautiful "Happy Anniversary" desert that was delectable. Great service all the way around making for a great first anniversary for me and my wife.
