    Our reservation was for a Tuesday night at 7:30 pm. There were only two other tables occupied. The atmosphere was a bit stark and bright for a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, compared to others we have visited. Ambience left a bit to be desired. Our waiter was great...very enthusiastic, knowledgable, and helpful. We stuck to his recommendations, ordering the cowboy ribeye, filet, and NY strip. Although the steak was delicious, the cowboy ribeye was overcooked, but they gladly corrected the mistake in preparing another quickly and without question. Our loaded potato was delicious but the sauteed spinach was very salty. The recommended banana cream pie was outstanding. The waiter remained attentive throughout the meal.

    My Mom and I dined here for my birthday. I love Ruth's Chris' food but it is the service that makes it incredibly worth going to. We were treated like royalty. Our meal was great - our steaks were perfectly cooked, our salads were fresh and the sides were divine. We loved it.

    This was our first visit to Ruth's Chris - and we had a lot of built up expectations. It was terrific! The wine list was more than we could comprehend but we found one we enjoyed. The food was fantastic - the beef - as expected - was melt in your mouth tender and the potatoes were (Lionese) everything the waiter said they would be. Our waiter was excellent - attentive and very knowledgeable without being off putting. We had a semi private alcove - perfect for a couple wanting time alone. This place is not inexpensive by any means - but suitable for a very special occasion. Thanks for a terrific first time dining experience!

    Celebrating our wedding anniversary, we specifically chose Ruth's Chris's and we're not disappointed. This is probably our most favorite steak house anywhere. My filet & my wife's petite filet were cooked to perfection, as normal. Brian, our server, was first-class, extremely friendly, professional, and eager to make timely suggestions. He is a great representative of Ruth's Chris. This is an outstanding restaurant in Greenville, only rivaled by its locations in Myrtle Beach & Columbia, SC. Bravo!

    We were celebrating my dad's birthday at Ruth Chris. Our waiter, David, was excellent. The food is good, but I think it is a bit overpriced. The salads are small - I don't recommend sharing them. The sides are also small - maybe will serve 2. Bring your wallet!

    Delicious 8-oz beef tenderloin, crunchy on the outside and tender-pink (medium) on the inside. Asparagus with bechamel, very good. Unexpectedly delicious peas au-gratin. Mashed potatoes with (more than just) a hint of garlic were creamy but just the right stiffness. Overall, highly recommended, but remember this will make a small dent in your wallet, so plan accordingly.

    I have been hearing how good the steaks are supposed to be at this place for years. I finally tried one (the Cowboy Ribeye) and was not really impressed. It was good, but far from great. There was no seasoning on the meat and it is roasted. If it was cooked over a coal flame, I would imagine it improving dramatically. My meal came to about $85.00 (steak + potatoes + shrimp + a few sodas). The service was great and the room was comfortable. Everything was good, just not great; especially for the price.

    I have eaten at several Ruth's Chris steak houses around the country as well as other prominent steak houses and the meat that we were served was not Prime and was not edible due to grissel and tendon. We had lamb chops and a filet, and the filet split into thirds due to silverskin, and the lamb chops could not be cut. The server responded as well as could be expected but we will not be going back. Certainly not to the standard I expect from this restaurant at this price.

    Despite the attempts at impressing guests with trinkets like displaying the wine list on an IPad, and serving the steaks on a sizzling plate, I still felt like I was in a hotel lobby and though the food was good, it's by far not the best in Greenville. The Peddler & Rick Erwin's both have as good or better steaks and are not nearly as expensive. It was a good dinner but, at $200 for two people with 2 drinks each and gratuity - it was very disappointing... I won't be going back there myself.

    The restaurant comes with it's reputation of being very pricy and it was. At those prices, for us, it is out of our range financially. We were able to enjoy it only because we received gift cards. Even with them we spent 80+ dollars of our own. I will give a shout out to Brandon, our server that night. He was polite, attentive, efficient and couldn't have done one thing different to make our dining experience any better. He is top-notch, cream of the crop! The meal was good, the baked potato was enormous and tender. Cheesecake was good, not exceptional, but good. Overall, It was fun to get the opportunity to see how the other side lives if only for one meal!

    4 hosts, still couldn't get seated on time. Feels very "hotel bar-ish" vs high end steak house. Bar in the newly renovated hotel felt classier. Food was good, but not exceptional. Would rank it no higher than 5th overall in Greenville for steak houses. Too many great locally owned and simply better choices here to choose a chain, especially when this may not be the best example of Ruth's Chris.

    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;-)

    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.
