  • "I want to thank the entire staff of this Ruth's Chris for making our evening an enjoyable one, once again. The service and food are outstanding. Thanks to Liam for his wonderful service and Mike for keeping them all in line. We will be back, again and again. Thanks!"

  • "The steak tasted sour. The crab cakes were cold and the waitress was just kinda rude. I told her it was my wife's birthday and she said okay. The Ruth Chris in SF at least gave her desert and came to sing happy birthday to her. Would never go back to RC again."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "From the moment my wife & I were escorted to our table, we had the sense that we were alone in the best of ways - the focus of the staff's attention - the chef crafting a meal only for us. Our waiter, Chris, was informative & professional.. I've had lobster bisque in many, many parts of the country. Few compare. Veal stuffed ravioli that teased your palette, and fillet that melted on your fork. Outstanding evening - relaxing ambiance fashioned so that you had no idea a 30,000 sq ft casino was bustling around the dining room (never heard a sound) - at a price that would surprise you. Thank you 'Open Table.' 'Ruth's Chris,' & 'Chris!' - David & Kate - Tampa. FL"

  • "My husband and I enjoy the filet at Ruth Chris but we especially like the sautéed mushrooms. We also enjoyed a bottle of Moscato."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "My husband and I celebrated our 16th anniversary dinner here and it was amazing. From the bread at the beginning to the dessert. The glass of wine I had with dinner was excellent also. Highly recommend....just FYI....the sides are big enough to share."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Very pricey for the quality of food and service. My lamb chops which I ordered medium were rare so asked them to cook them longer. They brought them back at least 15 min later. My husband at that point was almost finished with his entrée. They serve entrees on plates that are extremely HOT and thus the meat was so hot I couldn't eat it right away as it would burn my tongue. I have eaten much better meals on cruise ships. Maybe this particular Ruth's Chris is a cut below their other restaurants. Will not eat here again."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Have always enjoyed our dinner at RC and this was no exception. Everything was great."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "As with every Ruth's Chris I have been to (about 5 or 6 different locations), the food is unsurpassed, portion sizes are huge and the service is prompt and friendly without being overwhelming. Ruth's Chris is at the top of my favorites when it comes to multi venue restaurants. This one in Cherokee is no exception, and is very convenient, being directly accessable from the casino floor."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Everything was simply perfect our food was on point and the wine list is superior "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "This was not what I've experienced at Ruth's Chris in the past. The food was good, but I've definitely had better meals at other locations (and other restaurants, as well). The main issue was the poor service. We waited far longer than surrounding tables (who were seated after us) to even have our drink order taken. I'm not sure what the problem was. I'd chosen Ruth's Chris based on my past experience, and now I'll choose another dining option based on this experience. I remarked to a friend that the wait staff at the buffet the next morning was far superior to our server! And the tip reflected it!! In my opinion, a meal at this location will be a disappointment -- don't waste your time or money there."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "I've eaten at several Ruth's Chris locations around the country and if nothing else they are consistent. Ambiance is always top notch as is the service. They are very good at what they do. Personally I prefer my steak flame broiled (vs. oven broiled) but if you're the opposite, there's nothing not to like. I simply don't find their claim to fame, delivering a still searing steak on a 600 degree plate, compelling enough to make it a regular eatery."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "The food was good the service terrible-water glasses not filled unless asked for . Dirty salad plates left on the table. Food brought to us but no one asked if steaks were cooked correctly. Overall disappointing."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "not impressed for the price expected more. the waitress was to busy telling her life story about her kids and dropping out of school"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Typically a great streak and food, but not this time. Fillets were tough....overcooked......then undercooked.....then finally right. Don't get the 3 course special. All I can figure is they use a different cut for the special price. I don't mind paying more for a better steak. I do mind paying a lot for a terrible steak.....I'll give then one more chance. Maybe just a bad night........."

  • "This was our 2nd time to Ruth Chris. We were looking forward to trying the stuffed chicken in addition to the steaks which are always excellent. I had also fallen in love with the pecan crusted sweet potatoes. The chicken was fabulous - almost better than the steaks and much cheaper. Unfortunately the sides were inconsistent. The parmesean cauliflower was cold and bland - obviously had been sitting awhile before being served. The pecan sweet potatoes were overcooked and dry - also obviously had been prepared well in advance and had been sitting as they were luke warm. Our reservation was for 8pm and they were already out of the asparagus. We selected the broccoli augratin as a substitute and it was excellent. Server was great."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "My husband and I came for his birthday. The food was very good, but we had to send our sides back because they were room temp. The meat was delicious. And the meat temp was perfect, but I was a little disappointed about the side items. I would probably still visit again for a special occasion."

  • "Dinner at Ruth's Chris in Harrah's Cherokee Casino was a priority on this visit. Surprisingly, the Casino hotel staff recommended their Brio restaurant over Ruth's Chris - due to the difference in price for what they believe is equal quality food. I especially wanted to try Ruth's Chris and budgeted casino points to cover dinner. I was not disappointed. Lovely ambience and background music. Food that met my high expectations. Enjoyed red grapefruit greyhound, wedge salad (delicious!), crusted petite filet and shared scalloped potatoes, and asparagus with my dining partner. Finished with black coffee. Servers were attentive and skilled. Notable lag time waiting for the check which also irritated adjacent table diners. Will go again."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "I love this place! Filet was melt in your mouth awesome along with the garlic mashed potatoes & buttered mushrooms! The scallops were the best I have ever had anywhere! We tried the shrimp coktail and will definetly get it again next time! The service is amazing. The servers are extremely nice and took great care of us!"

  • "Good food - service was somewhat off than usual. Eaten at the bar on previous occasions - server was much more attentive."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Had dinner on a Saturday night at Ruth's in the Cherokee Casino. I have eaten at many Ruth's in the past. Steak was good, location was fine, service not so good. Sides were cold, and when we told the server, we got a pretty nonchalant comment about telling her earlier and she would have done something about it. She was pretty difficult to find. Probably wont be back, nothing special about the location, and service is what typically gets me to go back. "

  • "Great spot to spend time, and relax. The wine menu was very good coupled with the Ruth's Special was a hit for us."

  • "My daughter wanted to treat me to a great meal, we love to play at the casino and try to eat at Ruth's Chris every time we are there. Unfortunately, the steak I got was tough and just a bad piece of filet. Hesitantly, I told the manager( mainly because my 21 year old daughter was paying for the $100 plus meal) and she apologized and cooked me another filet and it was delicious, just what you expect from this restaurant. In the end, everything turned out fine. It was my present for Mother's Day, so it was extremely important to my daughter that it be just right. Thank you to the manager who made it right."

  • "WORST RUTHS CHRIS WE HAVE BEEN TO (PROBABLY EATEN AT 15 IN US) EXTREMELY BRIGHT LIGHT OVER OUR TABLE. NO ONE WILLING TO DIM IT. WAS TOLD WHEN RESERVATION CONFIRMED THAT IF WE HAD 5 INSTEAD OF 4 ON RESERVATION WOULD HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL 8:30. ARRIVED AT 7:50. RESTAURANT ONLY 25% FILLED AND CROWD GOT SMALLER AS WE DINED. WE ASKED FOR MY WIFE'S SALMON TO BE WELL DONE AND TOTALLY PLAIN. NOTHING ON IT. IT ARRIVED RARE AND COVERED WITH PEPPER AND OTHER SEASONINGS. IT WAS REDONE, BUT ARRIVED AFTER EVERYONE ELSE HAD FINISHED DINNER. WILL NOT RETURN TO THIS RUTHS CHRIS, ALTHOUGH WE VISIT HARRAHS AT LEAST 2 TO 3 TIMES A MONTH. J K CARVER"

  • "I have eaten at this restaurant many times and on April 26th 2014 we had a girls weekend and ate there. I was so upset I order a Filet Mignon and I ordered it med. well and it came out med. rare and one of the girls at the table ordered one med. and it came our med. rare. They did take it back and cook it some more by that time the rest of our party was almost done eating. they brought it back on the same plate with grease all over it and the grease got on the front of my shirt very unhappy about that. The rest of the meal was great and this has never happen before."
