Dining at Ruth's Chris is always a pleasure but dining at Ruth's Chris in Lahaina is really a special treat. We were able to request scallops with our steak which no other Ruth's Chris has offered to date. Our server was exceptional in taking care of our needs and helping to make our experience top notch without overdoing it. Our steaks were mouthwatering and absolutely so tender and delicious each bite melted in our mouth like butter. It was also our anniversary and we were treated to a decadent dessert as a grand finale. I would and have recommended this Ruth's Chris to many of our friends. Simply delightful!!!

Fine restaurant, but what is this?
First, the Good Points: The food, service, ambiance, and view are great. Parking is validated. If you get a window seat, you have an unobstructed view of the island of Lanai, the ocean, AND a famous Maui sunset if you time your dinner properly. The restaurant is quiet, which is what I expect when sitting down to an expensive dinner. In short, this is what you expect from a Ruth's Chris Steak House, and the Lahaina location delivers.
However, an odd thing happened when I cut into my filet mignon. I found two skewers embedded lengthwise in the meat, which immediately raised my suspicions that perhaps my filet was not genuine. The waiter & manager apologized, and I was presented with a new filet and comped a side and dessert. Hmmm!

Requested a table with a view
Requested a table with a view of the sunset - wonderful. Food was great - according to my husband and nephew - one of the best steaks they've ever had. I ordered the lamb - pretty good. Salads were huge - onion soup was good. Dessert - cheesecake was enough for all three of us and we took some to our condo for the next day.

Our dinner was excellent!
Our dinner was excellent! The filet was delicious, and my Mahi was wonderful. The Maitai my husband ordered was probably the poorest excuse for a tropical drink he has ever had in our 38 years of visiting hawaii! My filet was good but not up to what I would expect from Ruth Chris. I order private reserve filet from Omaha Steaks which are far better than the steak I recieved.

We had dinner at this location recently to celebrate some special occasions. The waiter was very friendly and accommodating and did not mind that my children were a little bit of a handful. I recommend the early bird menu available from 5-6 which is a great deal. You need to ask for it however as they did not give it to up upon being seated. We also enjoyed the stuffed mushrooms and oysters rockefeller. Overall our family had a great girls night out and will be back again for our next special occasion.

Pricey but Good
It's hard to image you would find better steaks anywhere on Maui. This restaurant had attentive service and quality food with a view. Just be prepared to pay for it. $150.00 for my daughter and I with no drinks!

Another Superb Dining Experience!
The service was impeccable. The food was delicious -- each steak cooked just right. The view in Lahaina at sunset is unmatched. My wife and I were here 10 years ago for our wedding anniversary and wanted to recreate that night again for our 20th anniversary. The night was flawless and the food superb. I had the ribeye and my wife had the petite filet. Both were cooked just as ordered. The appetizers (jumbo shrimp cocktail and seared ahi) and side dishes (scalloped potatoes and broccoli) were just as good. Ordered the mango and raspberry sorbet for dessert to top off the dinner. We have eaten at Ruth Chris in Cancun, Lahaina, and Cincinnati, and the quality has been consistent at each location. We are big fans of Ruth's Chris restaurants.

Perfect for a special occasion
Great food. Wonderful service. Expensive, but worth it. Celebrated our 25th anniversary there and were treated exceptionally well.

The Sliced Tomato and Maui
The Sliced Tomato and Maui Onion salad was a delicious way to start my meal. Our steaks - the filet and NY strip were cooked perfectly. The food was delicious.

Outstanding as Expected
I've been to several Ruth's Chris Steak House locations among many other fine steak houses, chains and local. Ruth's Chris Lahaina met all my high expectations with a beautiful ocean front view.

Known for steak which is always
Known for steak which is always prepared well, this location also offers local fish dishes. The sautéed spinach was a bit bland, a bit of garlic would have helped. Overall a good choice but pricey.

In the Mood for Steak?
Delicious steaks served on sizzling hot plates melt in your mouth. The bill will also melt a hole in your wallet ($45-$50 for the ribeye or filet). But it's worth it for a memorable meal. We have returned again and again over the years.

Another grat RC's!
We are from Phoenix in Maui for the summer to get out of the heat. We will eat at Ruth's Chris in Lahaina 4-5 times this trip. The happy hour in the bar is excellent and the main dining area food is very good. Some people like fish, we like steak and that means RC for us. Can't go wrong. The food is great and the service is A+!

Perfect sunset, Perfect steak!
What stands this Ruth's Chris out from all of the others, was the perfect sunset combined with their perfect steak. My girlfriend had never eaten at their steakhouse before. The waiter told both of us about how the steaks where prepared, and took time to help us decide on sides and appetizers. When we got our sizzling steaks, the sun was setting. This made the evening perfect!

2nd Time as Good as the First
Walked in for a late dinner last year as we were strolling down Front Street in Lahaina. Made reservations this year through OpenTable. The experience was flawless. Love this place! See you next year.

We just love Ruth Chris in ANY location, and Lahaina's location did not disappoint! Service was outstanding, and the Steak...oh...the Steaks! They just can't be beat....if you're looking for the best Steak in any town.....go to Ruth Chris! No matter where we travel, if there is a RC, we dine there! :)

Hadn't eaten at Ruth's Chris in years. Been doing Calital Grill and DelFriscos when wanting steak. The food was much better than expected. We shared the Oyster Rockefeller appetizer. There were 5 tasty oysters presented on a flaming plate. Nice presentation and nice taste. I had the filet and my girlfriend had the petite filet with the blue cheese crust. The steaks were done perfectly medium rare as requested. The steaks were tender, juicy, and of course flavored with butter as anyone who's been here, that's how they serve them. The side of Mac and cheese also very tasty. Bob, our server, was great. I took his advice on a Cab wine selection that was very reasonably priced and very nice.

Simply another fine meal...
...but you will pay for it. The good thing is that the experience (quality, offerings, and service), although quite pricey, has the value you would expect. I have paid a lot for meals that do not compare to the Ruth's Chris Steakhouse quality. This is one place you can get a Fillet that is tasty. My husband ordered the Ribeye and it was incredible! Not only did we get quality beef, the chef prepared the steaks exactly as ordered.
Eat perfectly prepared steak with an ocean view...priceless!

Ruth's Chris steakhouse in Lahaina was a welcome break from 2 weeks of seafood. We were so ready for a great steak and they delivered. Definitely a restaurant for meat lovers. Steaks were seared and cooked perfectly. Service was outstanding.

Ruth's never lets us down
It doesn't matter what Ruth's Chris you go to the service, food Nd every thing is wonderful.

This is our second time dining at this Ruth's Chris location and we enjoyed it just as much the second time as we did the first time. We would highly recommend coming here. They have amazing food, especially their filets.

Great food. Service not so good
We had a nice dinner, food was great but service was not up to usual standards. Took way too long to have order taken and there were long gaps between courses. Could not find server after we ordered. Disappointed. Dining experience not up to usual standards.

Steak was awesome
The steak was awesome as usual!!! Wedge salad was dry...like had no dressing... Had to request more... Hot fudge Sunday better at macdonalds. 3/4 of it a tasteless whipped cream. Fudge didn't taste like chocolate at all

Great sunset view while dining
It is our tradition to eat at a Ruth Chris Steak House the night we are leaving Hawaii. No matter what island, we eat at Ruth Chris. At their Lahaina location, we had a fabulous view of the sun setting over Lanai. The service was impeccable and food was fabulous, as always. Will definitely go back.
