    Ok $15 steak but ...........it cost $33. Way too much butter and pepper on the filet which had some gristle and wasn't all that tender. Don't get me wrong. It was a good steak. It was definitely not a great steak. The lyonaise potatoes were mushy and swimming in oil. Both the steak and potatoes were tasty but equivalent to say Longhorns. The lunch salads were crisp and fresh with delicious dressings. . We had expected better food considering the almost laughably high prices. The service was perfect. I wouldn't think of returning. It was our first visit to Ruth's Chris.

    A friend surprised me with dinner at Ruth Chris in Chattanoooga. I must say it is consistent with the location in my home town, Knoxville, TN. The filet and shrimp was such a wonderful combo. I had the filet medium well and it was the best I have ever had. It was a little noisy but not enough to hinder an amazing dining experience.

    First visit to the New Ruths Chris in Chattanooga. It was a special occasion as it was out 27 Wedding anniversary. My wife hade the Cajun Seasoned Salmon while I enjoyed the T Bone. The food and service (Sarah) was impeccable. The biggest issue is the traffic in getting to the restaurant. Make sure you allow a enough time to handle the traffic jams in and around the Gunbarrell Road as it is always a mess.

    Dined on 10/23/2014
    We dined as a group of four and ordered seared scallops as an appetizer. They had a beautiful sear and were cooked to perfection, tender and sweet. We ordered a 2 lb lobster, lamb chops and filet mignon. The lamb chops were the star of the meal, served medium rare with a well seasoned crusty exterior. While the lobster and filet were quite good, they were not elevated to the same standard as the lamb. The food was delicious, but the service was somewhat slow, considering the price of the menu. In chattanooga, St Johns restaurant serves comparable and arguably superior menu items with an unquestionably higher level of service. While I definitely recommend this restaurant for delicious food, be prepared for less than superior service.

    I understand this restaurant has big price tags on their steaks so that doesn't concern me, however the value of the money spent just wasn't there. My 16 ounce ribeye has way too much fat so therefor I probably got 12 ounce of meat. This was my biggest complaint, 2nd is our waiter was hovering around us way too much to even enjoy a French fry. However I will brag about the guy that took care of our valet parking, he was top notch. Now if they could hire people like him to wait on the tables, that would be awesome.

    Visited here for special celebration, after moving to the Chattanooga area. This Ruth's Chris location was excellent. Food was bountiful as usual with great flavor. Our server Caitlin was courteous, friendly but professional. Bar drinks were was good and hosted a large wine selection. Restaurant is in a hotel in the Gunbarrel shopping district north of downtown. Safe, quiet location, I will probably be here more frequently. I have eaten at many of Ruth's Chris locations across the country over the years, and only one was ever disappointing (in Florida). This one lives up to the name. You will be hard pressed to find a better quality steak (or meal) for the price!

    We brought our top performers out for a nice dinner and was surprised by being put in a private room. Several of our team members have never eaten at Ruth's Chris and were amazed at the level of service and the great steaks/food they serve. Mabel was our server and did a fantastic job. She was pleasant and knew her menu well and all that she suggested to us were above our expectations. We certainly will have no reservations in coming back.

    Gorgeous place and quite. The server was sat too many tables at once, so drinks didn't get refilled and we sat for a long time before they packaged our food for home. The manager finally came out to help her get caught up. The wedge salad was wonderful but my Ribeye was cooked perfect on one end and too well done on the other. So I only ate half because it had a burned flavor and was tough. Again, we didn't complain because our server didn't come back to the table and we didn't see the manager until we were ready to leave. I don't think I will go back. A little pricey for an OK meal. If everything were up to par it would have been worth the $180.00 bill for 2.

    We had our first visit to this restaurant for a celebration of my wife's birthday. I had booked online and noted that in the comments. The maitre d' greeted us with a Happy Birthday and informed us our table would be ready in a few moments. Indeed it was. A table for 2 next to the window which provided glimpses of the sunset. The filet was prepared to perfection and the service was attentive, gracious, and welcoming. A definite treat which we hope to partake of more often.

    Gumbo soup was delicious, service and ambiance terrific! My only complaint is that my husband's dish (pork chop) and my own (shrimp and crab cakes) could have been served warmer. He changed his up by substituting sauted mushrooms over the chop, rather than apples, and the mushrooms were great and piping hot....perhaps the rest of the foot grew less-than-warm while waiting for the mushrooms to be ready.

    Love a great steakhouse, and that's what Ruth's Chris is....a great steakhouse. However, I had the Oysters Rockefeller and was shocked at how GOOD this was....at a Chattanooga steakhouse! In addition, the steak, spinach, onion rings, and mashed potatoes were all very very good. We had Jeremy as our server, and he was very attentive, made great recommendations, and very friendly. Can't go wrong at Ruth's Chris.

    I and many of my friends and aquaintances do not understand why this restaurant was located at the mall instead of downtown and/or on the River. The added atmospere would have really made it a big hit. The food and service are as good as Knoxville, for example, but the location in Knoxville would cause me to drive the 100 miles for a personal event over the Chattanooga location, in fact we have done just that.

    This was our first experience with this Ruth's location. The room was very nice, and the service (David) was outstanding - perhaps the best we've ever had in Chattanooga. We both had the pre-fix dinner, hers was filet and shrimp and mine was filet and lobster tail. The steak house salads were excellent and the steaks were both prepared as ordered and were very good. Sides were creamed spinach which was excellent and fingerling potatoes which were overpowered by the sauce. The shrimp and the lobster were both slightly over cooked but would have been ok had it not been for a heavy dose of paprika - we won't order those again, they would have been much better if simply broiled and served plain. Overall, nice for a once-in-a-while occasion.

I did not eat half of my food and no one even cared to ask why. Service was very poor. Not worth the trip or the money.
