    The Ruth Chris Steak House Kennesaw location was a much better experience in terms of food and ambience than other locations I've visited. The bone-in ribeye steak was fantastic! Juicy, tender, and flavorful. The maître d' and wait staff were professional and friendly. Nice experience overall.

    Because this was in a hotel, they had no say in decor. Our server was very good and informative. There are only 2 locations that serve lunch, the one in Kennesaw and the one in Buckhead. We didn't want to be caught in all the traffic downtown. The food was delicious and prepared as ordered. We did not feel rushed or forgotten. The service was perfect. We would visit this location again for a special occasion. When they found out it was my birthday, the server brought a bread pudding to take home for dessert after dinner.

    My first trip to Ruth's Chris had been a long time coming. Always one of those destinations I "meant" to do and never did. However, after the amazing food, great service, and comfortable atmosphere - I'm sure that we'll be going back on a regular basis! I took clients and coworkers for a dinner and wasn't disappointed with anything the entire evening.

    We chose to return to the Kennesaw Ruth's Chris to celebrate our anniversary because of our previous good experience here. I was very surprised that on this visit they were able to completely surpass the food quality and service of all of our previous experiences. I mentioned our anniversary in my Open Table reservation and every staff member we came into contact with wished is a happy anniversary. The food quality was above outstanding and the wait staff were simply amazing. I plan on returning for our next experience without waiting for a special occasion.

    I did like the restaurant, the food was good, however when I'm considering a $200 bill I owe at the end of a meal, I'm considering the worth. I have to say places like Kevin Rathbun and BLT downtown are much more appropriate for that you get. The sides are much more extensive and much more gourmet for the prices paid, and the steaks are as delicious. My dining experience overall was good, however if I'm going to spend this much money, I'd prefer the food of either of the other two restaurants. I also thought it hokie that I was offered the choice between bottled water and sparkling water. Don't bring it by, ask your patrons which they want, they know what the bottles look like. I asked for tap.

    We had a gift card for my parents anniversary. I made a reservation online and mentioned the special event. When we arrived they had anniversary sequins on the table, candles lit, and later gave my parents. Complimentary mini dessert. It was our first time here and it made. Good impression. The food was incredible. My father ordered steak MW and we have never seen steak cooked so perfectly. It didn't need steak sauce! I had the ahi tuna MR for my entree and it had a spicy mustard sauce-different, I'm used to sweet soy sauces with ahi tuna- bug it was a nice change. My mom had asparagus and sweet potato casserole (she wasn't very hungry) and they came out in pretty big portions. You could tell everything was fresh off the grill and oven.

    Beautiful decor. Great staff. Waiter approaches table with a selection of two bottles of water-$6. Alcoholic drink-$15. Ordered Porterhouse steak for two-$87. Side items for 2-$9. Steak appeared to have more meat than it really did. Bone was disguised as meat. Steak tasted no better than what any steakhouse sells for $20. Dessert-$9. Bill was a whoping $145!! Thought this was outrageous for the quality of the steak! Sat us at a table surround by people talking loudly. One man was having a business meeting and giving a loud sales pitch. No romantic atmosphere. No dress code-most wear JEANS! Will I go back there--NEVER! Keep your money in your wallet and go to your favorite everyday restaurant that serves steak dinners for a whole lot less.

  • Third Visit is the Charm
    AdrianVIP
    Dined on 3/21/2014
    This is the third time I've visited a Ruth's Steakhouse, the first two times I felt unimpressed. Mainly due because of high prices and average tasting steaks compared to some other steakhouses. However this third time turned out to have excellent service and tasting steaks, especially their off-menu Ribeye with Shrimp and delicious sauce, and the Porterhouse. With an elegant and dim environment, this is a great place to take business clients, celebrate special occasions, or in my case enjoy a good dinner. All things considered there are a couple of steakhouses around the same price range which I prefer more, but this last visit has put Ruth's high up on the list. Definitely recommendable for giving it a go.

    Chose to celebrate a birthday dinner here because it was relatively close to home and we hadn't been to this Ruth's Chris location before. It is in the first floor of the Embassy Suites Hotel and there was some kind of corporate function being held at the hotel so there were lots of business diners which changes the atmosphere a bit (it's not a bad thing, just less intimate). The service was impeccable and our server was attentive. We were fortunate enough to be able to order off the early evening fixed price menu which saved a few $. The crab cakes were very good and the filet was cooked perfectly, as expected. Nothing really to complain about, but just wasn't a 5-star experience, in my opinion.

    Expected to be better but disappointed - was almost chainy. Started at bar with drinks & app. Calamari was okay at best-served with a "jelly type" sauce-too sweet. My husbands drink had 3 dead fruit flies. Bartender gave new drink but didn't offer to take off tab. At dinner, another fruit fly trying to get into wine:-( Wedge salad served over bitter greens-too much bitter. My filet was served with red center after ordered as pink ctr. Came back as medium well but was tasty. Loved the sizzling butter:-) Manager came over and asked how everything was- offered free dessert. We did and it was pretty good. Bartender didn't charge for last drink up at bar either. Overall, we wouldn't go back…was disappointing-expected a higher quality experience.

    set reservations for our third anniversary, Ruth Chris is our go to celebration location. Arrived early, had a drink at the bar and noticed walk ins were being seated while we waited for our table. Asked the hostess if our table was ready, she seated two more groups of walk-ins and finally took us down the hall, across from the kitchen door and more or less said have a seat. I should have asked for a better table which would have been about any place, but since it was our anniversary and my wife was really looking forward to the evening I didn't. Once seated it became apparent that every time the kitchen door opened the table was hit with a blast of cold air. continued in private note if anyone is interested.

    We took our oldest Grand Daughter to the Ruth's Chris in Jacksonville Florida to celebrate her birthday about 5 years ago. Last year we celebrated at Chops Lobster Bar in Atlanta. It was good but when I ask her where she wanted to go this year for her 16th,,, it was all Ruth's Chris. She is a steak lover and feels that ya'll have the best. We were made to feel welcome from the very first minute all the way thru the meal. The wait staff made her feel special and that's what we wanted. We hope all goes well so we can plan on seeing you again when she turns 17. Thanks for a great night.

    The service was fair and normally it is excellent. My steak was under cooked I asked for medium and it was medium rare over half the steak. I have never had a steak under cooked in all my visits to a Ruth Chris steak house. We had to wait for drinks too long and it was not half full. So this came to a big disappointment to my wife and me we don't like paying for Ruth Chris prices and getting Road House services.

    My wife and I were at Ruth's to celebrate our 50th birthday (born same day, same month, same year). Wanting to add to the great dining experience (and to focus our turning 50 on her alone), I ordered flowers in advance through Open-Table's vendor and the staff at Ruth's had already placed the flowers at a table prior to our arrival. The service was excellent in every way, from a warm greeting at the hostess counter to the wait staff that followed, to the excellent meal we each thoroughly enjoyed. We have dined at this location a few times before and have enjoyed the experience each time. I highly recommend this restaurant as one of the very few truly excellent restaurants in Kennesaw!
