  • "I was at Harrah's Cherokee for the WSOPC and I made it a point to go to Ruth's Chris. It has been close to 15 years since I had been to one (FL), and it is just a good now as it was then! I am a steak eater and Ruth's Chris is the absolute best at what they do. Whether it's the food or the wait staff, NOBODY can do it better!"

  • "bad signaletic on the road, difficulty parking (valet $ 17) and difficulty finding at the bottom of the casino"

  • "I have been too many steakhouses at Caesar's properties and Ruth Chris was by far the best. I have never had a better tasting steak. From the wine, to the salad, to the entree, to dessert, everything was excellent. I would highly recommend Ruth Chris."

  • "We made reservations ahead of time and we were seated immediately upon arrival. The wait staff was very friendly and efficient. We enjoyed the service and the attention. The food was very tasty but we weren't satisfied with our selection; no fault of the restaurant. We both ordered the 16 oz bone-in fillet. The bone took away from the tenderness normally associated with fillets and there wasn't enough meat. We will select the large fillet next time. The salad was good and the blue cheese dressing was fresh and flavorful. Overall it was an enjoyable dinner."

  • "I had a great time dining at this restaurant. I order lamb chops medium well. The lamb chops were outstanding!!!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We stayed in the casino from Sunday to Tuesday and took advantage of the food the casino has to offer. We have been to Ruth's Chris before here and other cities and this was no different being in a casino. The waiter was very attentive as his associate. The food came out at a good pace for a three course dinner. Take advantage of the Ruth's Classic they have, great deal and the sides were not individual portions they were family style - great for sharing and trying different side items. The steaks were cooked exactly the way we wanted them (medium rare). I recommend going there when you get there and not waiting the day before you leave because the casino will take it leaving you with food court choices (which are not that bad)."

  • "I have eaten at this Ruths Chris a few times and this was by far the least enjoyable experience. We were sat right in front of the entrance to the kitchen, so this added to the noise and the chaos of people always around us. We were a party of 6 so I understand limited seating. There was a larger group very close to us that was very loud the whole night and made a VERY big ordeal when it came time for them to have to pay for their meals. The food just did not seem as well prepared as the previous times we have been here or to other Ruth Chris. After saying all that I would still give them a second chance because everyone has their off days."

    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "don't go to Ruth Chris expecting to order a steak that's going to be cooked the same way all the way through they claim they can cook a steak to NE liking but if you can have a steak cooked the same way all the way through it's not really good steakhouse"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "While the food is expensive, everything was delicious. The staff went out of their way to help us celebrate our friends' anniversary. Ruta was a wonderful server and made sure the entire experience was exceptional."

  • "Great food and the wait staff was very knowledgeable on the selections."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Despite the fact that I had been thinking of your sizzling steaks for weeks, I was not disappointed when it arrived, Walking into the dining room, I was caressed by the aroma from the tables we passed, sparking my appetite. The only disappointment was I couldn't try any of the great sounding chef's specials as I wanted a steak. The service was perfect, a smiling and friendly waitress, eager to please complimented our food."

  • "Was on a romantic getaway wanted to eat somewhere upscale...."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The food was very good quality as you would expect at Ruth Chris. Service was also very good. My wife ordered her steak Pittsburg and medium well, it came out closer to rare. The group next to us was incredibly loud. In a casino environment you would expect noise and normally would not bother us. The language was very vulgar and the waitress seemed to be OK with that. After you her a"lady" talk about male organs the third and forth time it became offensive."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Excellent experience. If you are at Harrah's Cherokee, you need look no further than Ruth's Chris for a fine dinning experience. Great steaks and seafood, plus very nice atmosphere. We will return soon."

  • "First time at a Ruth Chris Steak House. Was extremely impressed. Dinner was excellent."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Food, service, and atmosphere was very good. Service to our table dwindled toward the end and waiter was supposed to return with our dessert choice. However, a dessert was brought to us without getting to make the selection. It was very good, though, so no complaint."

  • "Great food and service! Our waitress was exceptional! Honestly the best service I have ever had at a restaurant!!"
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "My husband and I drove 5 hours to eat here, he ordered the Ribeye cooked WELL DONE and I ordered Fil Migon cooked MEDIUM WELL, ok well he had to send his steak back because it was RARE, I mean RARER than mine, My steak was cooked MEDIUM RARE - We both do not like red in our steaks, I soaked mine up and ate it but for the price and the expectations I thought we were gonna have I was highly disappointed. Go to LONGHORNS for a better steak! The mashpotatoes also were awful taste like instant - wasn't thrilled at all! Will never go back to another Ruth Chris!"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Didn't expect such rude service and average to poor food. This place is overpriced."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Service was outstanding! The salads and sides were excellent although my 16oz rib-eye was not up to the normal Ruth's Chris standards. Had nice flavor but on the tough and fatty side. The lobster tails were incredible! Can say enough about the service during a busy time!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food was excellent. I did not expect the food to be so good. The manager was great as well. A must eat when visiting Cherokee."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "My husband and I took his parents to celebrate their 50th anniversary and our 3rd. The service and food were excellent. Chrissie our server made the night special. Our anniversaries were noted upon arrival and we received a special treat at the end if the meal. Highly recommend!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My wife and I celebrated my birthday at Harrah's Cherokee Casino. We were very pleased to learn that Ruth's Chris was now a dining option. The service was excellent. The waitress was very nice and provided great service. My wine glass was never empty. The food was affordable. We both had the fillet and enjoyed. Steaks were cooked as requested. My wife had the sweet potato casserole. I would definitely recommend. I was asked if we were celebrating an event. After replying my birthday, I was given a free dessert. Almost more than I could eat, but I made an exception."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "Occasion was a birthday/casino trip. The food and services was outstanding. We had the Scallops instead of steak this time."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "the food was wonderful and everything was cooked as we asked; loved the entire meal just wish that they didn't sit couples so close to each other on one bench seat because you can hear each other's conversations and feel there is no privacy at all."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Prices way too high in my opinion, for that reason only we will likely not return."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "If you like steak you will love Ruth's Chris. The sides are portioned with enough for two or even more diners. Coffee and a shot of Bailey's Irish Cream was a nice drink to end the meal."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "Our trip to Cherokee, Ruth Chris was not the first time we were there. We had dinner there once before Dec, 2012, for my wife's birthday. It was exceptional then, but this visit was by far even better. When I made the reservation I stated it was for our anniversary. When we came in, we were greeted with a happy Anniversary. We were seated next to the fire, very romantic, with little signs on the table, "Happy Anniversay". The food was excellent."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "I have eaten at this Ruth Chris's several times, and we are usually very happy, but I was very disappointed this time. Slow service, despite the fact that they were not crowded.. Took forever to have the server return for drinks, etc. I usually dine there with my husband, but this time it was "girls night" out with my sister. Her steak, a ribeye ordered medium, arrive med-rare to rare. It was taking forever to even get our server's attention to send it back, so I actually got up and got another employee to take the steak back. Meanwhile, she ate her sides, and was completely done with the rest of her meal when the steak returned. The server was clueless. I really wanted to treat my little sister -- not up to par!"

  • "After a day of fun at Harrahs Casino dip into Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for a pleasant finale to the night. Great food, excellent service and a happy ending to gambling."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Although the food and wine were excellent (but not outstanding), the entrees were served way too quickly. We were not even half way through the salad. I expect more attention to this type of detail in a quality restaurant. It was quiet at first, but part way through the meal a group of fairly rowdy (loud anyway) young men were seated not far from us which proved to be annoying. The waiter was very accomodating and pleasant. The a la carte menu is pricey, but the prix fixe menu for $44 or $49 (lots of choices) makes this restaurant affordable for a special occasion."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "I would highly recommend this restaurant staff was very sharp. They read the request I made on "open table" and expressed "Happy anniversary" several times. Great time."

  • "The only thing that reminded me of Ruth's Chris was the sign out front. I live in Charlotte and I bring a lot of my customers to Ruth's Chris by my house in Southpark and Morton's uptown. 2 of the 3 of us had dirty menus, we were put in the middle of the dinning room (not the end of the world by any means), but it was so bright. The lights above our table must have been on high. The shrimp cocktail was great, the drink pours were awesome, but the ribeye was overcooked on the left and just okay on the right. The lobster mac and cheese was average at best. The 3rd guest ate the 1/4 chicken and said it was absolutely amazing. I don't even remember what my bill was, and I didn't mind paying it because my scallops were pretty good. Average"

  • "I planned to have my son's bachelor party at Harrah's Casino in Cherokee NC and thought that Ruth's Chris would be a Great place to have the bachelor dinner. I have dined at Ruth's Chris many times and new the group would enjoy it and it would make a memorable experience. The food was Great as usual!! Wish there was a restaurant closer to my house."

  • "This restaurant is a must if you are at Harrah's Cherokee. Located on the casino floor, it offers the best steaks and seafood anywhere. You can be very comfortable eating right at the bar if you do not want to be seated at a table or booth. Menu includes many items, but they are noted for their steaks. Filet is outstanding, as was the crab cakes. You can find less expensive restaurants at Harrah's, but you get what you pay for. We will certainly return any time we are visiting Harrah's."

  • "Not the same quality of restaurant that it use to be or the quality that Ruth Chris is known for."
