A word from Ruby River Steakhouse - Reno
Ruby River Steakhouse is a Utah original, born out of the desire to create the most flavorful steaks west of the Mississippi. Hand-cut in-house daily for freshness, and twenty-one day aged for tenderness; once you’ve dined with us you’ll experience the passion and quality that is Ruby River. We are honored to have been voted Utah’s Best Steak by City Search, City Weekly, and Best of State time and time again. Ruby River offers more than high quality steaks. Customers indulge in tender chicken, fresh seafood, fall-off-the-bone ribs, and mouthwatering desserts all while enjoying a handcrafted soda or gold medal beer from their brewery. It’s the perfect complement to any meal. Ruby River is a laid back style with a country romance. It’s a place to relax with family and friends.

    My first visit to Ruby River was an eye opener. As we were being seated we were asked if we would like a bucket of peanuts at our table. What sort of place is this, I thought? We ordered an appetizer which arrived promptly. Almost as promptly, we were asked if we were finished with it. The same hurried pace continued with our salads and main course. We were unfortunate to be seated close to four 'gentlemen', all wearing hats at the table and loudly cussing. I am just old fashion enough to believe that manners and respect for others should be used when dinning out. Not one of the staff said a word to them concerning this. While the food was quite good, I will probably NOT be back.

    The experience was far more casual than I expected. We had wanted a little more refined - upscale - experience. But the food was good (lots of fried offerings) large portions (too large for me) and good quality meat. Five of us ordered five different steaks. All were good, and cooked just the way we requested. The peppered new york was the the best. They do something funky with the baked potatoes - some sort of fried crust on the outside that was not to my liking but I just ate around it. Friendly waitress. Fair prices. All in all a good, if a bit casual and cowboy-like, dining experience. Wear your jeans. Come hungry.

    We've been to Ruby River twice in the last month, each visit being a pleasure. Our meals were consistently very good, with our steaks being some of the best we've tasted anywhere in the nation. Combine this with great service, very reasonable pricing, good portions and relaxed atmosphere and it's no wonder this place seems constantly busy after many years of operation.

    Our waitress, Bianca M. was terrific. She really excelled in giving great service without hovering. This is my second time on her station and she's very consistently one of the best in town and we dine out a lot.

    Ruby River was recommended by a friend. we came from the Bay Area and were really happy we did! The host was very welcoming and we were seated right away. Our waitress was SUPER!! Her name was Jessica. Lots of menu choices. I had the grilled prawns, cooked perfectly. My partner had ribs. He said they were wonderful and we were sorry not to be able to bring the leftovers home. He also loved the mushrooms. No room for dessert, but the choices looked tempting. Dining at Ruby River was a great experience.

    Steak cooked exceptionally well. Good value. Don't bother booking your table through OpenTable though - Ruby River doesn't accept reservations from them - when you arrive and find that out, it is very frustrating!

    This is my second time at Ruby River. The first time I went was a year ago. The food was mediocre at best, but the service was good. I gave it a second try this past weekend. The service was terrible, rude and slow. The food was mediocre again. I will not be back!

    This was a small birthday party for my boyfriend and a couple of friends I had not been to Ruby River for a number of years and my boyfriend had never been there. I was just as great this time as previously and my boyfriend was impressed with the service, friendly staff and great food. We will be back again. Thank you for making his birthday perfect.

    Our first visit to the Reno location and we were very impressed. We placed reservations and were seat immediately and was greeted by our server Krirsten right away. We will definitely return next year with our bowling team!

    If you love steak, this is the place for you! Best steaks I've ever had. Cooked to perfection, moist tender and beyond flavorful. This is a great place for just a casual dinner, to take a date who love great food or for a business or special event. There is not one thing bad I can say about it. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of food and service you get. Try it once and you'll be back as often as you can.

    We were a party of five, so we were put at a table for four with an extension that had my husband sitting in the aisle, with patrons and servers walking back and forth behind him. Other than this, we had a pleasant experience. Everyone enjoyed their meal, although the almond crusted halibut I had was unremarkable (no real flavor).

    This place was recommended by a local I met while at the Peppermill and let me tell you; Ruby River Steakhouse's meat has better flavor than the Peppermill Steakhouse Bimini. IT's a win-win, better pricing, more energetic atmosphere, and a better tasting piece of meat. I would also suggest washing it all down with a Stein filled with your preference of beer. We went here for a B-day party and were not disappointed, will be back again.

    Ruby River has become a bi-weekly event for my wife & I! We can't say enough about the fine quality steaks & the great service! We usually make reservations every 2 weeks to enjoy the best steaks in town! We take in a movie & then cap off the day with a great meal at Ruby River! My favorite is the 20 ounce bone in NY! Super cut! My wife likes the mid size rib eye! Thanks for a fantastic dining experience Ruby River!

    The service was great and the food well it was ooo so good. It was fresh and just right. The only flaw was at the end when I ordered my dessert I was informed that it would be a 20 min wait on it. They did say sorry but it still left me feeling a little disappointed.
