    The overall meal was tasty and the server was very accommodating to my food allergy (I.e. Gluten free menu provided). My husband and I both enjoyed selections from the fall classic menu, which provides great portions at reasonable prices. All the food was served in a timely manner as ordered. We do wish the holiday decor and music throughout the restaurant had waited until after thanksgiving. They have a new cigar patio that looked nice for those interested.

    I have eaten at Ruths' Chris restaurants several times over the years in the Baltimore and Pikesville locations. The service has always been excellent along with the food. This visit to the Annapolis location left us a little dissapointed. As always the food was wonderful. However while he wasn't "bad" our waiter left us feeling like we could have gotten the same level of service at an Outback or an Applebees. My husband and I were both servers at many different ytpes of restaurants and we try to be understaning because we've been there. There were no "issues" and the support staff was very nice but I didn't feel like our waiter was very genuine and we felt the he really didn't care about us one way or another. When I'm paying $50 just for my steak I would like service that is sincere and makes me feel like I am a wanted guest. I don't think we will be back to this location. Dissapointing birthday dinner :(

    Annapolis branch of the notable steak house upholds the name. OpenTable reservation took 10 seconds, with a confirmation email 10 seconds later. Free valet parking in this waterfront neighborhood was appreciated in cold, rainy weather! Service was attentive, speedy, but non intrusive. A few Moscow Mules, hot bread, and lobster bisque warmed us up, as did the Cpwboy Ribeyes on the hot, hot plate. Good wines recommendations and hot coffee to end the meal left us dated and ready to go back out into the cold, rainy night.

    I made reservations for my Girlfriend and I for her Birthday. I requested a small cake at the end of dinner. When we arrived we were greeted warmly by all the staff and and led to our table. Once seated the hostess put rose pedals across the table which was a nice touch. Most of the staff also wished her a happy birthday as well. Dinner was very good and the service was great. we enjoyed a very romantic evening together.

    I was extremely disappointed this time. My husband been there multiple times over the years. They had a special that evening for a bone-in filet for over $60. That's an expensive steak and better be perfect. I asked for medium rare, my husband asked for medium on his ribeye. He had to send his back because it was medium rare, mine came out rare and I didn't eat it. Granted, they took my steak of the check, my point is for that kind of price, we shouldn't have to send our food back. It should be stellar across the board. Our waiter was however very helpful and a manager came out to apologize.

    This was my second time at this establishment. The first we sat upstairs, second downstairs just off the bar. Was a bit noisy at first however our waiter closed the door leading to the bar area and that changed everything. Food was excellent; filet and lamb chops. Chops were huge and tasty. The bread pudding was out of this world. What a way to finish. Free valet parking and great service. Great upscale dining experience - bring your wallet.

    Thanks to Ruth's Chris, dinner for my girlfriend was a very special event! My rare steak was cooked just right, and not too rare. If you typically like medium rare, I'd give the rare a try at Ruth's Chris. M'Lady had the scallops dish, which was outstanding.

    I've enjoyed several Ruth's Chris locations. In spite of living in the Baltimore area most of my life, this was my first visit to the Annapolis location. A very pleasant experience - food was up to the standard I expected (steak requested Pittsburgh rare - done perfectly!), service was superb, atmosphere was very classy and appealing. A good place to go for a fine meal, a romantic dinner, or a special celebration.

    The service was very good, the food was good and the atmosphere was nice; but considering the cost, it was not a good value. Maybe it was the combination of the food we ordered or maybe it was the chain's Louisiana origins, but there was way too much butter on our appetizers, sides and entrees. If you want heavy, rich food and cost is only a minor consideration, then this is the place for you.

He was also very informative knowing the menu and drink selections very well. The food was outstanding and the anniversay dessert was a delicious rich chocolate treat.

    I took some family members to Ruth's Chris Steak House in Annapolis to celebrate my promotion. We were seated immediately and greeted by our waiter in just minutes. Our waiter was friendly, attentive and professional. He was enthusiastic about the menu and made some excellent recommendations. Everyone in my party raved about their steaks and the side dishes. I highly recommend the smoky chipotle fingerling potatoes. My porterhouse was the best steak I have had in quite a while. I can't wait for the next reason to celebrate with an evening at Ruth's Chris.

    The perfect weather allowed us to sit outside on the patio for our party of 6 in October. It was warm with a light breeze, quiet and very attractive and cosy. Our server Daniel was very good - attentive without being intrusive. The steaks and seafood were delicious and cooked perfectly, the sides were good and the dessert was excellent too.

    It was a first visit for my husband & I; an anniversary gift from a family member. At first we thought; a bit expensive for a steak but it was a gift; so we gave it a try. The service & food were fabulous!! Worth "every" dime; it's not something we could afford very often but it is definitely on our list of "special restaurants" to re-visit! We couldn't eat all of our steaks; so we brought them home and we were quite surprized that the next morning when we had our leftovers for breakfast w/eggs; they heated up very well and were still delicious!! Great Restaurant!!! I can't get over how "fabulous" the steak really was & the service!!!

    We were sat upstairs near the service steps, and the food runners made a TON of noise going up and down the steps. It was the first time I've had a bad experience due to the ambiance. I'll just make sure to request not to sit there again, however the managers should be aware of the noise level. I know they are just trying to get the food out quickly, and I appreciate the effort.

    I tend to not visit chain restaurants but I always make an exception for Ruth's Chris. The steaks are always cooked to perfection and the service is always good. My group started out with calamari and ahi tuna appetizers, both were awesome. Two of us ordered petite felet's one regular size felet and a bond in ribeye. All steaks were presented as ordered. We also ordered many of the alacart sides and a few bottles of wine. With the exception of the server forgetting a serving spoon, the service was flawless. This place is a little pricey but for me the quality is there.

    We went for my husband's birthday and frankly expected a more satisfying experience all around. The food, service, ambiance, etc would have been fine at a TGI Fridays or Outback price point; however, we expected a more upscale experience which we've received at other Ruth's Chris restaurants.

    Waiter was perfunnctory nearly devoid of personality. Green beans undercooked; they made up for it by overcooking the scallops. Fortunately, the filet was prepared as requested. Asked for a quiet table, and was seated in a quiet alcove on a wednesday evening. That lasted a whole 10 minutes when a noisy group with children were seated almost next to us despite the staff knowing my wishes and despitw other seating being available. Prices way too high: $45 for an 11 oz filet; ten bucks for a side of green beans; $9 for a small 4 or so ounce glass of sparkling wine, etc. On a much more positive note, the parking valet was excellent & we were able to escape the area quickly. Recommend u pass on this restaurant.

    We had not been to a Ruth's Chris for several years. Our experience on this day made us wonder why we hadn't. Our steaks were perfect -- perfectly cooked, perfectly tender. The Lyonnaise Potatoes were great. The creamed spinach was also wonderful. We also had a banana pudding dessert that was heavenly. We will definitely return in the near future.

    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.

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".
