    In my opinion, appreciated the Prix - Fixed offerings. Like the 12 Oz filet, Russian Fingerlings, desserts ( they were quality and not over sized ). Didn't like the green beans and the scallops. The scallops were poor. Had a good Sesti Tuscan red - great value.

    Dined on 9/17/2014
    This was my first visit to Ruth's Chris. I immediately knew she chose the right place upon arrival. The hostess was very friendly, noticing we had on dark clothing and exchange the white napkins for black. I'm not a wine drinker, but thought the wine list on the tablet was an innovative touch. Our waitress/servers were outstanding. She was outgoing, friendly, and checked on us often. My food was delicious. I love salmon but decided to be daring and eat steak, which I never eat. The steak was wonderfully, flavorful. But my favorite was the Corn Chowder Soup. I know that wasn't the main course, but it was absolutely WONDERFUL. My mom is a foodie and she loved her meal also (scallops).

    Ruth's Chris is always a treat. My husband and I went for a date night-this is our 2nd time actually going. I love how they greet you by name, it's so formal! Next time I go, I will ask for a more private table however; the open seating still feels pretty private. The price is expensive, but totally worth it and very filling. We actually shared the Ahi Tuna appetizer, a vegetable plate (creamed spinach, sweet potatoes, and mushrooms), and the apple pie with ice cream. We were stuffed! Looking forward to the next time.

    The Porterhouse for two was the best we have every tasted and the service and attention was outstanding. The quiet, romantic booth for two was the icing on the cake. I would not change a thing about the experience. We have eaten at many prime steakhouses in the past and this one was up there with the best!

    ... treated us right. We were guests of the hotel. First night we came to the bar late for dessert and coffees (A+). Next night we had dinner in the dining room and Mike made us two French 75 champagne/gin drinks (from New Orleans). The filet, lobster tail and creamed spinach were excellent. Our waitress was professional ... didn't get her name. This restaurant is the reason we stay at the Embassy Suites when we are in Huntsville, AL.

    Recently had dinner for Husband's Birthday at the Huntsville, AL Ruth's Chris. It was wonderful overall. We had drinks in the lounge first, the servier in the lounge escorted us to our table. I went to ther restaurant in advance to select our table in a private area. Even received a call from the Hostess the day of our dinner. There were two assistant servers, main server, the food server, and also the manager checked in with us several times. The main server also escorted us to the restroom Great attention, but not intrusive. Allowed plenty of time in between appetizers entrée and after dinner. We never felt rushed at all. Would highly recommend.

    The food was very good as was the table service. Attentive, helpful. I had such a mediocre food experience at a RCSH in Atlanta, I thought about not trying again but had no other choice for a close-by dinner (attached to the hotel where I was staying) and I am happy I did. Odd though, second time in a row at RCSH that being acknowledged by the hostess. This time, she was on the phone for a protracted period, clearly was helping a customer, no argument on the reason for the call, but never raised her eyes, acknowledged me in any way for a number of minutes. Odd.

    Me and my wife spent our 10th anniversary here and they really did whatever they could to make it special. They had a '10' and a heart decorated on a nice quite oval shaped booth that was perfect for a romantic dinner. (Table 90 if you're interested in requesting the same quite table). Several members of the staff came by and wished us a happy anniversary. Of course the food was fabulous and our steaks were cooked to perfection. The server even gave us a nice chocolate mousse cheesecake for dessert.

    Dined on 3/29/2014
    For the second consecutive time, this location failed to even come close to Ruth Chris standards. I ordered a ribeye medium rare. It came medium well at best. It also had gristle that was bad enough that it stuck in between my teeth. At times the server disappeared for 10 minutes at a time. For example,, we waited at least ten minutes for the plates to be cleared after eating. I use to drive to Nashville when we wanted Ruths Chris....I guess we will go back to doing that as this location doesn't seem to understand service or quality food.

    One and one half hours prior to my reservation, I delivered one dozen roses in a vase to the restaurant for storage in a cooler. Shortly before my arrival, these roses would be relocated to my table. Unfortunately, they were stored in a freezer - not a cooler - and became discolored. After discussing this misfortune with management, a decision was proposed to compensate for the flowers by providing a complementary meal.

Missed one water glass for 10min. Cocktails slow to arrive. Waiter, Joey, took 15 min to return. 45min into seating by now. Salads 30min to arrive. Other tables' leap-frogging us. 1.5 hr into seating entrees finally arrive. Waiter no where to be found. Secondary staff had to follow up with us. Ordered wine, arrived 8-10 min after food. Rushed down entrees. Steak devine though. No time to eat dessert. Packed up to go. Had to badger waiter for check. He never apologized for his bad service. Late for start of show at 7. Theater right across street. Bad waiter Joey! Won't go back.

    The table was broken and wobbled very badly. The glasses were dirty when we first got there. The staff did a good job fixing the dirty glasses but at this scale of resturant they should have replaced the table, you know it was known to the wait staff. They dress each table between each guest.
