    Ruths Chris is well known and a good place for steak. Pricy and not always deservedly so. Service needs to be top quality to justify overall experience, and too often here it is not.

    We frequent Atlanta Ruth Chris and they are all great. The one at Harrahs is terrible. Service is worse than at an Applebees, was done with Steak before Wine ever came, Steak was overcooked, waiter never asked how it was, never got water refill until we were leaving. Went there for wifes b-day , very disappointing, waiter needs to work at Longhorn at best. Dress code is ridiculous, I know its in a casino but everyone was wearing shorts or jeans. If I am spending over $150 I expect service and ambience to reflect. Manager did try to appease

    Our first time at a Ruth's Chris and we had a great experience. Our server, Bill, was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful with the menu items. Loved the chopped salad. Our steaks were oh so tender and flavorful. My husband loved the loaded potato (and he doesn't like sour cream) but said it was the best potato ever. As for me, I had the roasted fingerling potatoes with chipotle sauce....to die for!!! Thank you Bill. Can't forget dessert....cheesecake, spiced peaches and chocolate...what more need I say. Can you tell we had a great time. If you go to Harrah's Casino in Cherokee...ask for Bill's table.

    Had a wonderful meal and service at Ruth's Chris. The ambiance was very pleasant our table was perfect and the amount of time alloted for dinner before a show worked out well. All 4 of us ordered from their complete menu and it was well worth it. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and our salads, sides and dessert were yummiest! We will go back again.

    I have been to three different Ruth's Chris Steakhouses and they have all been outstanding. Harrah's Cherokee Casino & Hotel restaurant was no exception. Service was outstanding from making the reservation, being seated, waiter and other service attendants, paying the bill and the thank you when leaving. I would highly recommend this dining experience to anyone visiting Harrah's, it is well worth the time and expense. Food (NY Strip, Filet, Augratain , Drinks (Margarita and Wine) and Service were OUTSTANDING.

It took 35 min for dessert because the server forgot we were still there.We had a 7:15 reservation we could not be seated until 8:00 there were 25 open tables the mgr said they were short staffed. I would not go to this location . Two other couples had the same experience while we were there. Bad!!

    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.

    We had a table for 2 and our waiter was more interested with his newly seated 4 top. We had to ask for our drinks to be refilled. We had to wait for our check and then it took a unheard of amount.of time.to get the dessert boxed that we walked out.With the prices that this restaurant charges for their a la carte meals it should be a 5 stars establishment.

    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.
