    We like excellent quality American food that we grew up with best of all. The steaks at Ruth's Chris can or can almost be cut with a fork. The flavor is unparalleled and no other steakhouse suits us as does Ruth's Chris. We have been to 23 in the US. The hot, crusty bread is so satisfying and the side dishes are varied and delicious-especially the creamed spinach and potatoes au gratin in our opinions. No, we can't eat like this every day and it's not heart healthy. But, if you want a delicious food with excellent preparation and taste, you can't beat this. How much grilled chicken breast and broccoli can you stand?

    Love this place! We always come here for our anniversary and it's always a great night. The service is impeccable and the food is amazing. It might be a little pricey, but you will leave satisfied every time! Ask for a table by the windows if you'd like to look out at the river and city! Thank you James (our waiter) for making it a memorable evening!

    This was my first visit to this particular Ruth Chris (I have been to the one in Orlando a few years ago). I was w/7 other family members. We were all celebrating my parents' 56th Wedding Anniversary. The staff made the occasion a memorable one. There were fresh red rose petals scattered in the center of our round table along w/a card signed by all staff members on duty wishing my parents a Happy Anniversary. Everything we ordered was so delicious. My parents even received a special dessert for them to share that had a single lit candle & chocolate syrup on the plate that spelled out "Happy 56th Anniversary". It was such a wonderful night.

    Dined on 7/24/2014
    This location is in the Crowne Plaza Hotel across the river from downtown JAX. River view is great, ambience is very good, waiter was efficient, courteous and amusing. Wine (Novy Syrah) was pricey but well worth it. The only disappointment was the meat. My lamb chops were a very generous portion but unevenly cooked and not seasoned well. My wife's filet was not as juicy or flavorful as one expects from a big league steak house chain. A la carte sides were presented as an afterthought and were expensive. We will definetely give Ruth Chris a second chance on the entrees, can't fairly judge based on a single experience. P.S. Do stay at the hotel, it is newly renovated, comfortable and relatively inexpensive.

    We're not regulars unless you count special occasions. Had the prix fixe meal 6oz tenderloin, 5oz lobster tail. Server recommended medium rare on the loin - Way under cooked! Rather flavorless. Had to scrape off the garlic topping which overpowered the steak. Flavor of lobster tail was mediocre at best. Would not order this again. Side dish of creamy spinach came warm but cooled quickly. Did the up-charge on the desert to crème brulee. Not worth a $4 up-charge. Just run of the mill. Great location for a special occasion. Would not make this a regular spot. Ruth Chris does not have the franchise on beef tenderloin. For a real experience in beef tenderloin, try the Canadian restaurant at EPCOT Le Cellier. OUTSTANDING!

The views of downtown across the St. John's River are amazing which match the food, service and ambience of this superb Ruth's Chris location.

    Great meal , as you would expect. The Corn Chowder was flavorful and full of corn, shallots and bits of bacon. The broth was creamy but not too thick. It was just right. The caesar salad was fresh and the dressing had just the proper acidity and a touch of anchovy. The steaks melted in our mouths. Filet Mignon served on a plate (that must have been 5,000 degrees) was cooked to perfection. Tender, moist and juicy with a brilliant red center. The Creamed spinach was wonderful, as was the au gratin potato. My first time to this Ruth's Chris and it is certainly up to the standards of the rest of the chain and the many other locations that I have visited in the past. Loved it!

    My dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House was simply delicious. Hands down, this was my best dining experience thus far. My 6 oz. filet finished with butter and garlic was cooked to perfection and paired perfectly with the shrimp. This, along with my appetizer of barbecue shrimp, Butter Lettuce BLT salad and sauteed mushrooms, was all mouth watering. I will definitely be visiting again.

Your "scalloped potatoes" cannot just be sliced potatoes with melted cheddar on them. That was embarassing for a place like yours. It wouldn't keep me from going back though.

    Had the opportunity to take my son, his girlfriend and my wife out to Ruth's Chris for a special birthday dinner on May 25th. The evening was terrific. We got the window table we requested, with a view of the St. John's River and downtown Jacksonville, and the service and food were excellent. We have tried other popular steak houses in and around Jacksonville and have found that Ruth's Chris is the most consistent of all of them. We will make Ruth's Chris our preferred steak house for any future event.

    We have been here before and have had great experiences. Our table had 3 steaks, all arrived under cooked, we all asked for medium and received all rare. Two of us sent ours back, one came out cooked to temperature, the other was still medium rare. That one was sent back again and came back very tuff of course. They were nice enough to take that one off the bill but one of us left there hungry. With steak being their specialty, we were all very surprised that none of our steaks were cooked to the temperature we asked! Also our waiter had no personality.
