I admit I really did not want to like RC as much as I did just because of the prices but their steaks are incredible!! The salads are large enough to split, the steaks are so good on their own that a side dish is almost unnecessary but they are good. We've had the potato au gratin which are delicious!

I've never seen so many people
I've never seen so many people in jeans for a place that when they called me to confirm my reservation, that the dress attire was business casual.

Our server, Leslie, was FANTASTIC.
Our server, Leslie, was FANTASTIC. She was there to take care of our needs without being obtrusive. We noted on our reservation that one of our party is gluten intolerant. Leslie had the gluten-free menu on the table when we arrived. She also provided a gluten-free dessert for our "birthday girl" without us reminding her about the gluten issue.

Great meal as always. Soup
Great meal as always. Soup and cream spinach could have been a little hotter. The dessert we selected was very small. Wish server would have explained it was smaller due to being a special....overall loved the meal and would go back.

We had a phenomenal experience. Patrick was our server, but he was backed up by an entire crew of unobtrusively scrupulous assistants. I wish I could remember their names. The food was exquisite in it's simplicity, salt, pepper, butter. The most amazing flavors were brought forth from each featured item. The steak, lobster, scallop, shrimp... Beautiful. I was particularly impressed with the baked potato whose interior was creamy perfection while the skin was crisp and flavorful. Next to the lobster, I do believe I enjoyed that perfect potato best!

Grand first meal with Ruth Chris
Our table was beautifully set and had a lovely view of the water. Philip, our waiter, was experience personified. I could tell that he had spent many years around fine food and fine dining, answering questions truthfully and fully. The salads were good but not high point of the meal. Steaks were delicious. I am a stickler for any fat on meat, there was none on my filet and every piece was eaten. Mashed potatos were tasty but lacking texture of a really freshly made batch of potatos - seasoning was lovely. Finally dessert - a chocolate and strawberry cheesecake shaped like a cupcake with a crisp chocolate around the outside PLUS the most wonderful small and chunky dark chocolate cookies with pecans. I would have purchased a dozen of them.

From the moment you walk into the door until the moment you leave you are treated like royalty. Our server was excellent and the food was great. One of the best dining experiences ever.

I took my husband here for Father's Day and he really had a nice time. Thank you for helping his Father's Day be special.

I have never been to Ruth's Chris and not received great food and service. They work as a team, the management is involved and the staff is always friendly, responsive and knowledgeable. RC is known for quality and it is worth the expense.

Diane, should be rewarded for her attention to repeat customers. She was very helpful in the menu selection and was very attentive when our meal was not cooked to order. Diane has been the reason we have visited Ruth's Chris so often.

Ruth's Chris was a great place
Ruth's Chris was a great place to dine. We felt like we were spoiling ourselves. The service and food was excellent. The view was awesome! The only down side was the prices. Even with a 6 figure household income, I do not think I will eat at Ruth's Chris more than a couple of times per year.
6/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I were visiting Wilmington. Had a wonderful meal at Ruth Chris. We had steaks with sides, shrimp and desert. Everything was delicious! The service was outstanding...he was very attentive,
I highly recommend this restaurant.

I made my reservation for dinner online for Ruth Chris'. I wrote that it was our wedding anniversary and we are vegetarian. We were graciously greeted and our table had red rose petals on it!! Everyone was very nice and accommodating to our diet. It was a very pleasant experience and will certainly go there again. Also, I told them i was gluten free, and they gave us flourless chocolate cake for dessert that was divine!!!!

Yankee Food with Southern Service
Not a fan of chain restaurants as a rule, I was ecstatic to discover a very fine Ruth's Chris Steak House nestled in Wilmington, NC's Hilton Hotel overlooking the Cape Fear River and USS North Carolina. Loved the greater intimacy, quiet and more comfortable atmosphere than the Ruth's Chris branches in larger cities. The staff was about the best anywhere having mastered always being at hand and being communicative without being intrusive. Yes, the food while expensive, is spectacular comparing favorably with the best steak houses of NYC and Chicago. I cannot believe we did not dine here before because, well it is a part of a known chain....

always a great dining experience
always enjoy the dining experience, food, wine and service when dining here. Offers scenic view of Cape Fear River too.
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Absolutely delicious every single time. They are consistent in their food prep, service and ambience. A truly enjoyable dining experience every single time. Best steak in town by far and I am addicted to their sweet potato casserole side. Pricey but worth it!

What a great evening birthday bash for my son and I and our group! Great food, people and views. Must have the 11oz. filet, my daughter had the crabcakes, to die for! Birthday cake was a flourless tort, yummy!
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
need to pair the steaks with
need to pair the steaks with a side dish....not have to pay for that....who wants a steak by itself.....other than that found food very good....I am very good at cooking...so cooking my own steak will always be the best way I like to eat beef
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great restaurant and atmosphere!
Everything was fabulous, however my steak did taste like it came right out of a fire....not too flavorful but very tender! Other than that, everything was wonderful. We will definitely come back!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM

Dinner was fabulous! More than enough food and cooked to perfection. Thanks for making it a special birthday dinner for my daughter.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chose Ruth's Chris for our daughter's 21st birthday because we wanted a special occasion for her to remember. From the moment we walked in the restaurant to getting our car from the valet it was a special night for all of us.

This restaurant is known as
This restaurant is known as a high-end destination and it certainly was! The food is very good but SO expensive. Why do the salads and sides have to be so large? What if only one person at the table wants a salad, or creamed spinach? While the steak as very good and cooked as we requested, it was very high-priced.
And I do believe that there is such a thing as too much service. There were at least 8-9 people who came to the table during our relatively short visit. Our server (Rob) was excellent but why did we need all these others who while trying to be unoffensive picking up, dropping off and constantly filling the water glasses, it was disruptive trying to have a serious conversation.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a great evening here. took the wife there for her birthday. the whole staff from the hostess to the floor manager wished her a happy birthday and treated us like royalty. Sy was our waiter and went out of his way to make sure everything was perfect right down to the rose petals on the table and a delicious dessert on the house. couldn't have asked for a better dining experience.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love everything about this
Love everything about this place, food, wine, wait staff, scenic view, comfortable and will dine here again soon!!

Great night out
I took my girlfriend to wilmington for the weekend. We stayed at the Hilton riverside. All we had to do was walk downstairs and we were there. The food was great she enjoyed everything and said it was the best steak she's ever had
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
When we came out the guys
When we came out the guys that get your car were setting reading the paper and couldn't decide who had to get our car. Then as we waiting a car drove up and the two that were reading the paper waited till the people got out of the car before they approached them....
Will always come here for special occasions....by the way we had no rose pedals on the table...the server said no one went out and got any?
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
What's left to say? The food
What's left to say? The food was excellent, the service top notch. Would go there again in a heartbeat!

Thanksgiving with Ruth's
My wife and I decided on a different holiday experience this year. A few days of beach life and a holiday dinner at Ruth's fit our wishes perfectly. The sweet potato casserole was excellent. We did go for steaks instead of Turkey. We were not disappointed. Thanks
