    We have enjoyed this Ruth's Chris many times and have never been disappointed. The service, food and drink are fully what you would expect in a fine dining restaurant. Many timne we go there for the bar scene and appitizers, and it is one of the best in town. The staff is very knowledgeable in what they have to offer as well as very good suggestions on food and wine selections.

    We had a party of five for a birthday dinner. Amazing wine list! I had the lamb chops which were perfect! Two vegetarians at our table were able to order off the menu! A smidge overpriced. Service was great until about 75% of the way thru when our initially super helpful and fun server copped an attitude. No idea what happened but that threw water on our little party though we pulled thru;-)

    Our experience was highlighted by our waiter Brian's welcoming personality. He gave us the mouthwatering detailed account on how our steaks would be prepared. The various selections of sides to complement our entrées were enough for two people. Overall we would certainly return and when we do, we will be sure request Brian as our waiter.

    Had an outstanding experience at our local Ruth's Chris on Saturday night. This was a late anniversary/Valentine's Day date for us. Service was prompt, courteous, thorough. Food timeliness was outstanding. Preparation was spot-on. Server Steven is without comparison. Both of us have multiple years in mid-scale food service and management. We will recommend this location to all we see and speak to, and we will strive to return ASAP!

    Let me start off by saying I was very excited to try the steaks at Ruth's Chris Steak House. I had heard so many good things about the quality of the meat. My wife ordered the filet and loved hers. I ordered the 16oz. New York Strip which is my favorite cut and I always order it when we go out. I must have been unlucky and got a bad cut of meat this time. It was tough and chewy with a tendon running through it. I was so disappointed that when asked how things were I just said fine. It was the first time for my wife and I going there and I had told her to expect the best. Hers was great and I was almost embarrassed to tell her I had the worst steak in my life. It is my fault for not speaking up but I just did. I received an e-mail to rate.

Our service Kendall was amazing next time we go we would love to have her, but all the servers we great! They address us by name when we were first seated. It like they knew our Who we were before coming in. Kendall explain their entire services without us asking for anything. Now the food!!!! OMG, is all I can say!!! My husband had a steak and it's was so juicy and tender you could pull it apart!!! I had the shrimp and grits and it was to die for. I can't wait for our next experience there.

    The only negative issue is that after spending our annual Valentine's Day evening / birthday dinner at Ruth's, we were disappointed that for the first time since the opening of the Greenville restaurant, we were not seated where we requested a 'private solo' dining 'booth' in the main dining hall .... but rather after 5 years of loyalty to Ruth's, we were seated in a room as far back as the restaurant could seat us......very disappointed in this treatment for our loyalty. We would have been happier to have been seated in the bar!!!!

    The food was great and the service was good. We were actually bothered by how often waiters/waitresses/managers stopped by the table to ask how everything was. It became annoying. For some reason it took longer than it should have for them to clear dishes and to bring the check. It was still a good experience, but I expect the best when eating at Ruth's Chris.

    I have had steaks from Atlanta to Charlotte, Asheville to Charleston, and most places in between. Ruth's Chris is the only one that I actually crave to go back to repeatedly. Even my mom, the vegan, had an awesome dinner! I do not know of many places that pay that much attention to detail while the staff still seems to enjoy what they do. This is the place to go if you want to be pampered with great food and service!

    The wrong steak was brought out to me at first. It did not take very long for my order to be corrected. I requested med cook but the steak was still a little under cooked but I still ate it. It was not worth sending it back since the other 3 in our party already had their food.

    The restaurant was just ok. We have eaten at several Ruth Chris this was almost like an upscale Denny's. The service was ok, we felt like 2nd class citizens for ordering the restaurant week special. The server was pushing about the specials of the night. It was about the restaurant not us. The steak was good but not great. I was sad. For a 300.00 check we expected more from RC.

    We visited Ruth's Chris in Greenville, SC for part of South Carolina Restaurant week. The food was delicious. We started with the jambalaya, which was perfectly spicy and had just the right amount of rice and nice chunks of seafood. We both got the 6 oz filet topped with shrimp. The steak was cooked perfectly and was just the right amount. Finally, our dessert was the New Orleans Bread Pudding which was perfectly executed. The bourbon flavored sauce was the perfect topping. What I love most about going to Ruth's Chris is the service. Every experience I have had at this location has featured the best customer service and a staff that is truly welcoming.

    Food was very good, so was the service by Kendall. I would have rated the service as excellent, BUT a different girl served the desert that was atrocious. She practically dropped the plate of bread pudding in front of me, no smile, not a word, and swiftly turned away ( no lie) and returned to the kitchen. The same girl came back with a fork for one of my guests and dropped it in front of her. Again, no apology, no smile, and swiftly turned towards the kitchen. I didn't make a scene because of our special occasion. I talked to the manger after I got home and related the whole episode. He listened and was very apologetic. He asked what he could do for me, I said nothing, only to prevent this from happening to others.

    In past experiences, I have had better meals at Ruth's Chris. We were expecting the food to be a little more flavorful. While our food was not bad by any means, it was just average. The prices of the meals and the reputation of the restaurant are such that I expected a better tasting meal. We opted for the fixed menu, which was part of restaurant week in Greenville. Next time, I would choose a different steak house in Greenville.

    We are a regular at Ruth's Chris and this was the first time we were disappointed with the food. Don't get me wrong it was good just not up to the normal Ruth's Chris standards. My belief is that with it being "Restaurant Week" in Greenville and the massive influx of patrons, the kitchen was rushed and just not on their normal game. We will definitely be returning and I'm sure it will be back to the normal above average ratings.

    I had a small filet, shrimp, salad, and loaded baked potato. Although all were excellent in preparation and taste, there was nothing to set them apart from any other fine restaurants around Greenville, most of which provide similar meals for a much lower cost. The service was top notch, and lacked nothing. The special included three large shrimp on the steak, but because the plates are heated to 500 degrees, when I moved them to the plate to cut my steak, the shrimp cooked more on the plate and became tough. The baked potatoes are tremendous and definitely enough for two people. It was well cooked and loaded, but again, everyone has a good loaded potato. I do not believe I will return.

    After ordering wine/beer, we were told that they did not have the bottle of wine (even though the iPad said there were 2 bottles left) or the beer. Later in the night, he poured wine from our $80 bottle into the house glass of wine of another guest. He didn't apologize, he just laughed when we corrected him. And he definitely did not ask if we would like it replaced or anything a good server would do. When the check came, he had charged us for both bottles of wine - even though we only drank the one. Usually all of this would be no big deal, but this was our first time at Ruth Chris and when you are spending upwards of $300 on a meal, you expect great service. Needless to say, we will not be returning.
