Diner Reviews
  • "Went for my husbands birthday. Food was amazing and they even brought out a special plate of deserts for his birthday!"
    Dined on 8/26/2014
  • "The steak was excellent. Everything else was not, particularly considering the cost. My wife's filet was "OK" at best and the lobster tail was the size of a large crawfish and considerably overcooked. There was little attention paid to side dishes. For examples, the Ceasar salad was mostly warm iceberg lettuce with dressing that could have been bought at the supermarket. The fingerling chipolte potatoes were a cheesy, over spiced mess and tasted like something that might have been sitting around after several hours at a Super Bowl party. Service put on a good show but there was a long wait for food. Reputation and word of mouth got us there. Overall food and service will keep us from returning."

  • "RUTH'S CHRIS STEAK HOUSE SERVES THE FINEST STEAK IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. WE REALLY HAD A WONDERFUL DINING EXPERIENCE FROM THE SERVICE OF JAKE OUR SERVER TO THE SIZZLING FILET ON THE HOT PLATE AND THE LOBSTER BISQUE. IF YOU WANT THE BEST STEAK IN THE WORLD THEN RUTH'S CHRIS IS YOUR OYSTER. WE GO OUT OF OUR WAY TO EAT THERE WHEN WE GET THE CHANCE. IT IS NOT CHEAP BUT THEN EXCELLENCE ISN'T CHEAP NO MATTER WHERE YOU CAN FIND IT TODAY."

  • "Had a wonderful bithday dinner of a petite filet which, as always at Ruth's Chris, is a perfect cut of beef cooked deliciously in butter. This was our first visit to Cherokee Harrahs and found the service less than par with other Ruth's Chris we visited. Waiters were nice but expected a little more attentiveness. No free dessert for birthday either."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Ruth Chris Steak House. The service was gracious and pleasant. Most of all the food was delicious. We had steak that was cooked exactly as we expected and both tender and flavorful. The creamed spinach was excellent. The only disappointment was the shoe string potatoes because they were actually too thin, if that's possible. Next time we will order French fries."

  • "Everything was superb as usual. Wait time to be seated, service and food can't be topped."
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "We have been to This restaurant on several occasions. Just the two of us and with a group of six. Every visit has been pleasant with great service. You can't get a steak like they prepare anywhere else in the country. Make reservations to avoid waiting. You will enjoy every minute of your dining experience ."

  • "You get what you pay for and at about $75/person it was worth it. We will be back."

  • "Try to eat here often. This was our 41st Anniversary and the restaurant went out of their way to make this a special occasion for my wife and I. Thanks to the entire staff. The food was great."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "This was my first visit to Ruth's Chris Steak House. I lost my husband last October and it had been one of the things we wanted to do together. Unfortunately, it was not the greatest experience for me. The food was delicious. My problem was that after I was seated, my waiter came to get my drink order. I never saw him again. Another waitress stopped by the table and said she would be helping the original waiter. In total I had 4 different people that waited on me and it took approximately 1-1/2 hours. All the other tables in my section had one person taking care of them. My reservation was for 6 p.m. It was not crowded this night. Unfortunately, I'm not sure I'll be back."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Service & wait staff were outstanding. Filet was cooked to order, but tough, Rib eye was cooked correctly, but very chewy, ate only half. Did not complain to wait staff. Vegatable was very good, and salad was also good. Have had much tastier steaks at Outback and Longhorns at much reduced prices. Frequent Harrah's Cherokee Casino on regular basis, but in future will use only Brio's Tuscany Grill, as better meals at lower prices."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "My wife loved the lamb chops. The best she ever had. Service was great, and the staff was friendly. It was our 50th wedding anniversary, and they had a table set up recognizing the occasion."

  • "As always, a superb meal and service. That is what keeps us coming back."

  • "We made a last minute trip to Cherokee with friends who had joined us here on Valentine's Day earlier this year as well. While we have dined at Ruth Chris before, our experience was exceptional due to the personal attention of the manager, Jen, who looked after us personally when a large party of 13 had arrived, to make sure we had uninterrupted service. She was just spot on with just enough information and special attention and it made the meal and food even better."

  • "My wife made reservations for monday 7/28 for our 25th wedding anniversary. The table was decorated for our anniversary. Food was excellent. My wife and I cannot thank everyone enough for making this a great evening. We came back home and have not stopped talking about how good the food was. Thank you very much and we will eat there again on our next trip"

  • "Our dinners at RC have always been great but I was really disappointed in the new summer corn chowder. It did not have enough corn and there were too many corn silks in it which made it very unappetizing to eat."

  • "Ruth's Chris is the best place to eat at Harrah's Cherokee. We've never had a bad meal!! Great service too!!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Ruth's Chris never ceases to amaze me. Although known primarily for their steaks, every course was a culinary delight! We had the ahi tuna appetizer and it was nothing short of fabulous! Both of our steaks were exquisitely prepared, my boyfriend having a NY Strip, and I, having the filet prepared Oscar style. All that and the salad paired with a beautiful Malbec, was a total delight. We look forward to joining Ruth's Chris at Harrah's Casino again very soon! The entire wait staff and particularly our server were more than efficient and personable! Thanks for a lovely evening!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "If we didn't have a hundred dollar gift card we would have been enormously disappointed at the additional hundred it cost us for a very over priced meal. My filet was so tough and full of grisel and my broccoli was barely cooked. The crab cake appetizers came after our soup and salad and they were mushy in the middle. My lobster bisque had very tough lobster meat in it, like rubber! Server was nice and I suppose would have brought us different food but everything was so bad we would have spent the night there! Outback Steakhouse here we come!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Steak cooked to perfection. Side dishes absolutely delicious. Excellent friendly service."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "They have a value selection, their "classic" menu - appetizer, side, entree & dessert. This is a great value and the portions are very adequate. The server we had was excellent, helpful, friendly, paid attention but didn't hover. The only "problems" were the sides were barely warm (potatoes, mushrooms). They added a sauce to the filet mignon (which came with lobster tail), that over powered the steak. A good steak doesn't need a creamy sauce, it should stand on its own. My gripe is that that wasn't mentioned on the menu. It basically ruined the steak."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "While the food itself was very delicious & cooked perfectly, that didn't off-set the fact that a single steak was all you got & an average price of that was $35. You would think at these prices you would at LEAST be given a salad. This was a special occasion, and the birthday person had always wanted to try this restaurant. We can now say we have, and we won't be back."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Before we came I sent a note that one of our party was celebrating her birthday. Every single waiter/waitress/staff mentioned that to her and I really appreciate that. Nice touch."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "This restaurant is located in a large casino. They actually do a great job of making it feel like "someplace" else. The staff is very professional considering they are in the mountains of North Carolina on an Cherokee Reservation far away from areas where you would normally find such professional wait staff. They seem to do a good job of keeping families with children in areas separate from adults and couples looking for quiet ambiance."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "The food was extremely delicious, hot/cold as should be and tender. Could not have ask for anything more. Worth every penny! The service was a bit slow to start ordering but after that the waitress was very pleasant and checked appropiate amount of times. Would love to have the recipe for the lemon drop martini. The bloody mary was a bit lack luster."

  • "Loved Ruth Chris. Steaks done to perfection. Great to share a meal because portions are large"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "The food is always great but the service is not the best. Most of the servers just do not pay very close attention to their guests. Our drink glasses were always empty for at least 5 minutes and we only got refills when we asked someone. I keep going back because the food is so good."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
