    Our reservation time was honored as was our confirmation request for table location, which was greatly appreciated. The dinner was excellent and the service matched it. Waiter was professional and attentive but not intrusive. All in all, a great experience.

    We went here for our five year anniversary, and they made the evening extra special with rose petals and dessert. The steaks were cooked perfectly to our liking, and were very delicious! The staff was also very attentive and polite. We sat outside on the patio, which was quiet and romantic. I would definitely go back!

  • 33rd Anniversary Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/1/2014
    It was OK. I expect more from this steak house. Good wine list and good wine. Filet was very good. Rib Eye was fatty and tough. The service was average; couldn't keep water glass full and never offered to refill bread. $30 lobster tail was over broiled and dried out. Skip it. Then waiter made a $17 error on the bill by charging us for our desert which was included in base price of meal. The waiter fixed it but I expect greater attention to detail at a Ruth's Chris. Not horrible but not great.

    Well, you can't do it every night of course but that is what I have come to expect. The service was slow and the steak over-cooked. I have eaten at Ruth's Chris many times, and this is the first time I have every rated it only "good". At these prices, you expect very good or excellent every time. I will be back again and hopefully Ruth's Chris will be as well.

    It was my first time dining at Ruth's Chris and it was an great experience. My boyfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary so we both thought it was very romantic. Our waiter was so helpful, the food was amazing. At the end our waiter brought out our dessert and he took the liberty to decorate our plate in chocolate with it saying "Happy Anniversary". Couldn't have asked for a better evening.

    Out to celebrate our anniversary Disappointed in the lack of dress code, t-shirts, flip flops. You are supposed be a special place to go, didn't think I was going to Outback - a turn off . Your staff were great but probably will cash out my rewards points and not go back. Everyone tells me Lewnes is better but I kept on defending RC,. I can't choose recommendation category above that is the truth so I chose wine list

    If you know what to ask for you can have a REALLY great meal here. If you're looking to not be interrupted, request the upstairs, the dining there is quiet and wonderful. The bar area is "spirited", no pun intended. It's loud. Great wine list and the food itself is excellent. No frills, just a great steak and the sides are equally delicious. It's a sure bet I'll be satisfied when I leave. Just request an area of the restaurant that will provide the atmosphere you want or you might end up having trouble enjoying that wonderful food.

    I took my fiance to Ruths Chris for her Birthday. The Service was outstanding the restaurant was nice. my fiance really enjoyed her Filet. I had the Ribeye. It was cooked exactly how I ordered. The steak itself was average. It was somewhat disappointing. overall the evening was good just wish the steak was better. Maybe, Ill order the Filet in the future. I just like a well marbled ribeye. My fiance had a great time, that is all that matters.

    We went again for a birthday celebration, and it was fantastic as always. Wait staff very attentive, all food was perfectly prepared. Steaks perfect, and the fish was also wonderful. Table of 2 adults and 8 children were coming in at 9:00 pm as we were leaving, glad we were done! They did attempt to put them in a back secluded room, but we were back there too!

THERE WAS TO BE A SPECIAL MENU AND ALSO A $25 DOLLAR GIFT CARD TO BE GIVEN AT THE END OF THE MEAL. THE E-MAIL SPECICFLY NOTED THE ANNAPOLIS LOCATION FOR THESE SPECIALS, AND THIS LOCATION IS THE ONLY ONE I GO TO ANYWAY. UPON MY ARRIVAL AND SEATING, I INQUIRED ABOUT THE SPECIALS AND WAS TOLD THE MANAGER HAD NO KNOWLEDGE REGARDING SAME, AND ALSO THE SERVER MENTIONED THAT SEVERAL OTHER PATRONS HAD ALSO INQUIRED ABOUT THE SAME THING. ANYWAY WE DID HAVE DINNER AND IT WAS GOOD AS ALWAYS AND LEFT. NO RESPONSE FROM THE MANAGER OR TABLE VISIT FROM HIM.

  • Best Steak Ever
    BlueCheeseCrustSteakLover
    Dined on 6/14/2014
    Literally the best steak I've ever eaten. I had stopped eating beef for a while and my fiancée took me to Ruth's Chris for my birthday...We talk about the steaks at least once a week. lol We literally think about what the next visit will be while we're still there. I love it, the only thing I would could say that isn't perfect is the noise level. Our first visit was a slow week night and there was still a bit of noise. So we went Father's Day weekend and, well I'm sure you could imagine. We will definitely visit Ruth's Chris' Steak House again, maybe next time we'll visit another location. :) The food is PHENOMENAL though. If I find that all locations are this noisy I would definitely still visit without hesitation.

    had a lovely dinner. there was some discussion because we were there for their 3 course special dinner menu at the $43.95 price point. We were initially told that this restaurant was not a corporate one - privately owned and that the special was not being offered ( it was on the website and on TV). Anyway, the manager honored the request so we were pleased.

    I had two nights in Annapolis with my wife for her birthday. We wanted a steak and I was tossed between RC vs, the local Lewnes steakhouse. Both had good reviews. We chose RC and were pleased with the end result. From the second we walked into the place we were warmly welcomed. Not once were we wondering where the staff were. They were right on, the entire dinner. Our main waiter Kurt was awesome. Made recommendations on wine for my wife based on her tastes. It was her birthday and they placed rose pedals on the table and brought her chocolate cake at no charge. My wife loved it...and my steak was exactly what I am used to from RC. Never disappointed! Thanks for the great night.

    It was our anniversary. We were looking for something different, somewhere we had never eaten before. Someone suggested Ruth's Chris Steak House. I found one in Annapolis, MD. We spent the afternoon walking around Annapolis enjoying the waterfront, and had dinner reservations at 7pm. It was fantastic in every way! The food was so delicious, perfectly cooked and everything was so flavorful. There was a lovely anniversary desert presented after our meal. Our server was awesome, very friendly and knowledgable and attentive.

    Went here for an anniversary dinner. The first table they gave us was inside the packed bar with people basically standing on top of us. We asked for another table just to be moved to another section of the bar. It was incredibly loud and not a good setting for an anniversary dinner. The smoke alarms were also going off. The food was good, but the setting was not as expected. We have been to plenty other Ruth's Chris and have never had a problem. I would go back to Ruth's Chris, but probably not the one in Annapolis.
