Diner Reviews
  • "Me and my wife celebrated our honeymoon here and enjoyed every bit of it! The view, the food, the smells, the people, the warm amazing bread, an old fashion and a raspberry lemon drop. Everything was delicious and they even threw in a free dessert for our celebration. Awesome place and they seem to have a more relaxed dress code than the other RC's I've been to."

  • "We always have a dinner at Ruth's when we stay at our timeshare in Maui. We had planned to try a new restaurant in Lahaina and thinking we would not need a reservation for 5:00pm. WRONG. It was an hour wait. I used my iPhone to book at Ruth's on Open Table. We got a table in 10 minutes just before it filled up. Thanks Open Table! The food was great as it is every time we have been to ANY Ruth's ......ANYWHERE!"

  • "We have dined here many times on prior trips to Maui and frequent Ruth's Chris on travels to other cities. This facility is tired and uninviting. My meal began with a martini with a glass barely above the halfway level. Next came a salad served at room temp and barely any dressing. Next came my sirloin perfectly done which was very fatty and had several large veins of grizzle which ran throughout the steak. Not at all commensurate with the cost. My three other dining companions were all equally unimpressed. If this were a $25 steak, I would accept this. It was not."

  • "For the price I expected a much better filet. I've been to many Ruth's Chris restaurants over the years and was very disappointed. I was also shocked to learn that they don't offer any grass-fed beef options."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Juan our waiter and the rest of the wait staff were very rushed during our entire meal. When he would ask us a question he would not wait for our reply but would either keep talking or start walking away. The rest of the wait staff were just as rude. The restaurant was not even moderately busy to justify this kind of behavior."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "We've been to Ruth's Chris in Lahaina and always had a lovely experience, but the hostess set the tone for this visit seating us after another party of the same size who checked in after us, and we had a long wait for a second glass of wine. The food was delicious, but the service wasn't up to par with previous visits."

  • "I've traveled the world over and have eaten at many restaurants - both inexpensive and expensive. Reject the temptation on this one. Way overpriced, for very average food. There are far better restaurants in Lahaina to spend $100 a person at."

  • "Difficult to park close. Busser over filled my wifes glass and poured water over the table, just said sorry and disappeared. Waited an age for food, finally got entree an hour after ordering, which was all we had. When it came the food was good."

  • "Steaks were very good, but for $50 they should be outstanding. Potatoes were burnt. Visited this restaurant every year for sometime. Really disappointed. Very over priced! Will not return next year."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "The service was great, the server very friendly and helpful. But the french fries were soggy and greasy. Some of the worst I have eaten actually, but the crab cakes were the best I have ever had. Pricey, but really, really great."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Have been to Ruth's Chris in many other cities, and this one did not live up to standards. The steak was fantastic, but everything else was mediocre at best. Mashed potatoes looked like soup. Tomato salad had no flavour. The decor was dated and it didn't have a great ambience. For the prices that they charge, we were extremely disappointed! Next time we will go to Longhi's across the street."

  • "It was not as expensive as I thought it would be in comparison to Ruth Chris's on the Mainland. My New York Strip was done to perfection! I can't wait to visit this Ruth Chris again when I'm back in Maui."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "We visited this restaurant recently while in Maui. The food was good, but it wasn't GREAT, and certainly not worth the outrageous cost. We have had better elsewhere, and of course always better at home. The service was outstanding. We would not go back, and would not recommend, primarily because it is ridiculously expensive for what it is. Don't get me wrong, we are more than willing to pay for exceptional food, and certainly have - but this did not rise to that occasion."
    Dined on 1/13/2014
  • "The Caesar salad was disappointing. The dressing tasted a lot like Kraft,s thousand island dressings . Also I had to return a glass of wine that was off and you wouldn't think that would happen in a fine dinning restaurant. The service was very good ,however, and they did acknowledge our anniversary with chocolate coated strawberries"

  • "We always order the fillet which is perfect plus the grilled tomatoes which have a touch of sweetness. Our favorite waiter, Bob, is always very attentive."

  • "Having been to quite a few steakhouses (including many Ruth's Chris) i expected top notch food and service. What i got was a long wait for dinner to come out, multiple undercooked veal chops around the table, and cold sides. The server was attentive and helped right the wrongs but it was just a little too late. Expectations weren't met and i dont think i'll be going back."

  • "Ruth's Chris is a consistent choice for great steaks and this visit did not disappoint. The food, especially the steak, was excellent. Ambiance at this location was lacking. Very noisy and we had to speak up quite a bit to have a normal conversation. Lots of large parties on New Years Eve, which slowed service quite a bit. We weren't in any hurry so this wasn't a problem. Would definitely recommend when in Maui."

  • "3rd time at this location. Service has been poor every time. There was a party of 26 people they were waiting on in regular dining room. I don't mind waiting I understand it makes things slow down. However I waited for my food for over 1 hour. This wasn't the main problem. I ordered ice tea and not 1 time in the hour I waited did they refill my ice tea or water. Service at this location has been poor every time I have been there. The steak is delicious if you have 2 or 3 hours to kill this is a good place."

  • "We went to Ruth's Chris in Lahaina for the Prix Fix menu during Restaurant Week. Our waiter claimed to know nothing about the prix fix menu and went to "ask the manager" and not so happily returned with a prix fix menu. We had ordered from this same menu a year ago at the Beverly Hills location and it was excellent, which is why we chose to try it again while we were in Maui. And like in Beverly Hills, I ordered the stuffed chicken breast--except it wasn't stuffed at all. The mashed potatoes were cold and runny like they came from a box. Overall it was bad and not with the price even given the Restaurant Week deal. Skip this restaurant."
    Dined on 11/22/2013
  • "Had the special T-Bone. $52, and even cooked medium was dry and tough. Service was OK but nothing special. I would rate our dining experience a 2 out of 10. Had the tomato and Maui onion, tomato was tasteless and the onion was not plentiful enough. This restaurant needs work both out front and in the kitchen."
    Dined on 11/25/2013
  • "It is our tradition to eat at a Ruth Chris Steak House the night we are leaving Hawaii. No matter what island, we eat at Ruth Chris. At their Lahaina location, we had a fabulous view of the sun setting over Lanai. The service was impeccable and food was fabulous, as always. Will definitely go back."
    Dined on 11/24/2013
  • "The steak was awesome as usual!!! Wedge salad was dry...like had no dressing... Had to request more... Hot fudge Sunday better at macdonalds. 3/4 of it a tasteless whipped cream. Fudge didn't taste like chocolate at all"
    Dined on 11/12/2013
  • "We had a nice dinner, food was great but service was not up to usual standards. Took way too long to have order taken and there were long gaps between courses. Could not find server after we ordered. Disappointed. Dining experience not up to usual standards."

  • "This is our second time dining at this Ruth's Chris location and we enjoyed it just as much the second time as we did the first time. We would highly recommend coming here. They have amazing food, especially their filets."

    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "The service and food were both off from what you expect and usually always receive from a Ruth's Chris. We had to ask a attendant filling water if he could get our waiter to order a second drink for my wife. He advised the waiter who promptly returned with the same drink my wife ordered the first time, the only problem was that she wanted a different drink. My drink glass sat empty during that delivery and he didn't even ask if I wanted a second drink. Not terribly busy but we only saw our waiter 3 times. Food was just ok, not up to usual standards as I stated before. I can't recommend based on combination of these factors."
    Dined on 10/30/2013
  • "The service and atmosphere of this Ruth's Chris was very substandard compared to other Ruth's Chris we have been to. The temperature was about 90 degrees which made it difficult to enjoy a hot meal. We sat there for the last half hour with empty water glasses. There were only eight full tables in the place and they still were not able to provide the service you would expect when eating at a Ruth's Chris."
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "Ruth's Chris steakhouse in Lahaina was a welcome break from 2 weeks of seafood. We were so ready for a great steak and they delivered. Definitely a restaurant for meat lovers. Steaks were seared and cooked perfectly. Service was outstanding."
    Dined on 10/24/2013
  • "...but you will pay for it. The good thing is that the experience (quality, offerings, and service), although quite pricey, has the value you would expect. I have paid a lot for meals that do not compare to the Ruth's Chris Steakhouse quality. This is one place you can get a Fillet that is tasty. My husband ordered the Ribeye and it was incredible! Not only did we get quality beef, the chef prepared the steaks exactly as ordered. Eat perfectly prepared steak with an ocean view...priceless!"
    Dined on 10/22/2013
  • "It's hard to image you would find better steaks anywhere on Maui. This restaurant had attentive service and quality food with a view. Just be prepared to pay for it. $150.00 for my daughter and I with no drinks!"
