This dinner was a graduation
This dinner was a graduation gift to me from my son and we had looked forward to it for months. It was everything we expected and more! The food was wonderful, the view of the river was beautiful, and the whole experience was made even better by our fantastic server, Richard! He made our entire evening fun with his friendly personality and his willingness to go above and beyond. He was very attentive and had great suggestions for our meal. The whole experience was worth the wait and I will definitely go again!

This was our second time at Ruth Chris. The service and food was great. Steak was on point! Water view was beautiful. We will be returning again.

My wife and I dined for our 20th Anniversary and the dinner was absolutely top notch! Views of downtown Jacksonville were perfect and the service/food couldn't have been better. Our waiter Richard really paid attention to detail and the anniversary surprise dessert at the end was fantastic! We will definately be back for another special occasion.

Nice restaurant for special occasions. Filets are delicious and tender. Service is good, though a bit too attentive. Too many tables, too close together for an intimate dining experience. The waiter brought a lovely "Congratulations" dessert to my daughter. That was very thoughtful.

Our go-to for a special occasion
We live just 5 min from downtown Jacksonville and always choose Ruths' Chris for our special occasions -- birthdays, anniversary, graduation. They have a great view of the Jacksonville skyline and the service is always superb and efficient. We have rarely been disappointed by the food -- it is always cooked to perfection and delicious.

Like always a beautiful evening especially sitting outside for a drink before going in to a dinner. The only thing we found different and changed is the sweet potato casserole go back to the original receipt it used to be like a dessert during dinner the last 2 visits it is dried out and slightly burnt.Absolutely the only criticism of a wonderful night. Thank you-

High School Graduation Celebration
We celebrated my son's graduation from high school by taking him to Ruth's Chris to have a steak he would remember. From the time we arrived till when we left 2.5 hours later the staff at the SouthBank location in Jacksonville treated us with great care and made it a memorable evening.
We have always been treated with the most professional service at this location. We will continue to go back various times throughout the year.

This has become our go-to
This has become our go-to place for special occasions. This time, it was just two of us and we were in no hurry. We had our requested server - Karen - who has a great knack for moving the meal along at our pace. The filet, which we shared, was perfectly prepared. We also shared a salad, which was divided tableside and served with different dressings on the side. We brought our own wine, which was decanted as requested. All in all, a very relaxing and enjoyable evening.

I love this Restaurant! Great tasting food and wonderful service!
6/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Overall, we had a nice dinner. The food was good and the view was excellent. I have dined at this location a few times, and must admit that the service was not as attentive as I remember on previous visits. My steak was not cooked as ordered and it took some time before he server checked back with our table to inquire if everything was prepared properly. The issue was resolved very quickly and to my complete satisfaction. Everyone has an "off" night. We will definitely return.

Expensive, but worth it for
Expensive, but worth it for special occasion dining. Service was superb and the food was fabulous. Great view of the St. Johns River from every table. We went on a Friday night and the restaurant was busy, but not chaotic.

Great Waiter - phenomenal food
As usual, a great dinner at a consistently good restaurant with a Killer river and J'Ville city view. Richard was a great
Waiter, anticipated our dining and imbibing needs to a T.

For very special occasions
Ruth's Chris Steak House continues to excell at service, ambience, and food. We took a family member for a 75th birthday celebration and were well-pleased by the kindness and professionalism of the staff. The food was, as always, plentiful and excellent. The tables are spaced far enough apart so that you do not have to take part in another table's conversation. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Great for Special Occassions!
Ruth Chris really knows how to make special ocassions special! Their prix fix menu is a favorite - priced right. good value, great food. The St. John's River view adds a special touch to the dining experience. Not for everyday dininig - but a great place for a romantic dinner, birthday, or family celebration. Great service - attentive without hovering. Respectful servers, pleasant hostesses and hosts.

My family of four, including two children under 10, had a wonderful time. The staff was friendly and attentive, the food was delicious, and the waterfront view all combined for a very special evening.
We were a little nervous about our kids attending, and while the restaurant is quiet compared to most "family friendly" restaurants, there were enough conversations going on that we did not constantly have to hush our children.
Also, we were very impressed with the price fixed meal options, as we were expecting everything to be a la carte.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a table for 2 that looked out over the St. Johsn River, it was a beautiful setting. The food was cooked well and tasted magnificent. There happened to be a walnut shell in my husbands desser cookie, we mentoned it to the waiter, just to let him know. The manager came over, appologized profusely and then did not charge us for his entire meal. It was not necassary, we have no complaints, we know mistakes like a small piece of walnut shell can accidently get into a cookie, so it was a surprise when they compted the whole meal. We will be back.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best service and food in Jacksonville. Hands down.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Reliably Great Food
This was my first visit to the Ruth's Chris in Jacksonville. I had eaten at the Kansas City location several times and always had a great meal. The Jacksonville location did not disappoint. The bread before the meal was warm and perfectly crusty. It went very well with our escargot appetizer! Our steaks were both perfectly done and we enjoyed our au gratin potatoes and mushrooms very much as well. We had a large amount of food to take home as the portions are always huge.
I plan on going for happy hour sometime soon for bread and escargots!
We will go back for dinner again when we have the opportunity.

An Amazing Dinner Experience
My husband and I went here to celebrate our dating anniversary and had the BEST celebration ever. We were seated right away, even though we were early for our 7 pm reservation. The service was just impeccable right off the bat. We never felt rushed and enjoyed taking our time for dinner and drinks. The main event was the porterhouse for two and a lobster tail. It was THE BEST steak I've had ever and was just cooked to perfection. The lobster was seasoned nicely and so delicious. We truly enjoyed the views, the restaurant and most importantly the service and food. We will be dining at that location again.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent as always!
A great combination of delicious food and beautiful riverfront view. The fillets were seasoned and cooked perfectly. The service was attentive but low key. Our favorite special occasion spot, although this time we went just to have an excellent steak. Highly recommend.

Had a great birthday dinner at your restaurant. The restaurant made the night special by decorating the table and providing a delicious special dessert. I appreciated their recognition. Food and service were great as always.

Ruth Chris is consistently good food and service. Our Server, Jimmy, was especially good.

The service is amazing!!!
We went here for an anniversary. The service was the best we have ever had anywhere! Our server Tyler was awesome. Everyone was polite and very attentive to our needs. The steak is tender, juicy, and cooked to perfection. I love how it's served on a 500° plate. Everything is served separate which causes the bill to add up quickly. The food is 4/5 stars, but the service definitely makes it a 5/5 star experience. If it wasn't for the screaming baby right next to us, it would have been a perfect time. The tables are close together, which made the screaming very distracting. Otherwise, the noise level is very pleasant. Definitely would recommend you make reservations in advance.

We use Ruth Chris for all special occassions we celebrate. The food is always superb and always turns out to be a special time..

Wow! It was great , Food was outstanding service was impeccable and what a view of the river and Main St. Bridge. A little pricey for a weekly dinner but cant wait to go back.

Consistently great dining experienc
The petite filet was outstanding. Great Bernaise sauce too! House bread loaf is also very good.
Service very attentive and prompt. The meal came fairly quickly which was good since we were trying to make it to a concert at Veterans.
One of the few restaurants that carry my favorite vodka - Level!!

Been eating at Ruths Chris for 25 years and never dissapointed. This one has an even better view then most.

Great Meal At Ruth Chris
With a table overlooking a moonlit St Johns River, we enjoyed great, attentive service and terrific food, the rib eye steak melts in your mouth !! They even do a great Veggie Plate ! Highly recommended.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not our first time to Ruth's Chris, we were not surprised with the perfect service and attention to detail. It was a surprise Birthday dinner for my wife and we had friends show up a little later to add to the surprise. The staff was perfect in pulling this off. The food was delectable, as usual and the wine list was extensive. We all had steaks of different variety. Portions were extremely generous. Our waiter, Ryan even brought out and served the Birthday cake that we had the friends sneak in. Dinner was followed by a stroll on the river-walk (which was accessed right from the restaurant). We would recommend Ruth's Chris to anyone wanting a great dinner in a friendly, relaxing environment.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love the Jacksonville Ruth Chris. Anytime we are in Jacksonville we come there. It is always wonderful!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not the best visit, but still good
My steak came overdone, but my waiter promptly reordered another. Kind of put a damper on the dinner because I had to wait for another steak while the rest of my party ate awkwardly. Also, there were plenty of empty tables and I really disliked being seated right next to a party of six. This party included two preteens that kept snobbish and rude looks coming our way. As soon as we laughed about something, they kept turning around. Just will definitely request being seated in a more secluded area to enjoy our table's company and conversation privately.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not as good as usual
Service is always top notch. My husbands Filet had a big piece of gristle down the center. The lobster tail was good but not great. My filet was very tender and cooked just the way I wanted it. The steak house salad was just okay. Not as good as usual. My fried potato sticks were cold.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
I eat at Ruth's Chis often but the chef in this city seems to be especially talented. Service was a bit slow and our requests were often forgotten. But the great food made up for it.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
I really enjoyed my dining
I really enjoyed my dining experience at Ruth's Chris. Food was very delicious and flavorful. My sever was very attentive. My beverage was filled any and every time my glass became half empty. My steak was broiled perfectly. I have never had a bad experience at this restaurant.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our gold standard
We measure all restaurants and steaks by Ruth's Chris. We've tried others and RC is our default comparison. We treat ourselves for special occasions and now and then just because. R. Austin Murpy was our outstanding server as always.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect anniversary dinner
Dined at RC many times and it's always a sure thing. Les - out waiter - was fantastic. Recommend the petit filet oscar. It's not on the menu. Beautiful view, excellent food and service as always. Les recommended a perfect bottle of wine as well.

Date night classic
I have been to several of these steak houses. Can't go wrong! The food is always delicious and service is always top notch!,

This was a great location for a personal birthday Celebration. The food and spirit selection are varied enough to serve any taste. The staff is both friendly and professional. A fun relaxing time with the family.

Great dining experience as always!
We like to dine at Ruth's Chris everytime we are in town to see a J'Ville concert. The food and service is consistently excellent. The views on the river are second to none especially at night.
We'll be back!

Great for that special night out
With a great menu of food and drinks, this is the ultimate place for a special night out!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hands down the most consistently great restaurant in Jacksonville. The staff's professionalism and attention to detail is what sets this location apart. We recently hosted a surprise dinner party for our son and thirteen of his closest, eleven-year-old friends. It was an event tor remember! The food, execution, service, and atmosphere were unsurpassed. Thank you, Eric, Chef Justin and all those at Ruth's Chris Jacksonville who put on a flawless and wonderful event for Jack. Jimmy - YOU are the best server in Jacksonville and beyond...
How could we ever go to Ruth's Chris Riverfront and not leave happy? We don't take our local dining gem for granted. Thank you for so many good years!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything it was promised to be
I had never been to Ruth's Chris before but had heard the tales of the legendary steak. I was not disappointed. I ordered the filet and split a baked potato and broccoli with my husband. Everything was delicious and the steak was among the top 3 I have ever had. The wine list was almost overwhelming but the bottle we ordered (Willamette Pinor Noir) was delightful with our meals. Service was impeccable. We were seated next to the window with a lovely view. I will definitely be returning !
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have been to Ruth's Chris a few times and have always loved it, so I decided to go for their thanksgiving Dinner. The meal was fabulous, but was limited to a few sides and desserts. Would have been fine but they allowed for no substitutions and I am not a fan of cheesecake, so I could not eat the dessert that came with the meal.
