    The food was very good and the customer service was terrific. This was my first time at Ruth Chris so I learned a lesson. The sides depending on the individuals could be shared by 2 people there is plenty to go around . The entire staff that we encountered was pleasent and attentive to their customers.

    We went to Ruth's Chris at the Mohegan Sun Casino at Pocono Downs for my son's 30th birthday. We have been there before and had an amazing dining experience. This time, not so much. The calamari appetizer that we were all dying for was a huge disappointment. Didn't taste fresh and was on the soggy side instead of crisp. The portions on everything were much smaller. The sides that previously we were able to share were definitely one portion. My petite filet looked and tasted like sirloin. I will say the service was excellent ! It's sad to say, but I think we will find a new special occasion restaurant.

    What a surprise to find "melts in your mouth" calamari at a steakhouse. It is comparable to the tenderly divine calamari which we had consistently in Italy. The steaks - filet and ribeye were excellent as well. The vegetable side dishes were very fresh. It was an excellent dining experience!

    I have dined at Ruth Chris many times before and had wonderful service. This past visit the service was terrible. I have never had to wait 20 minutes for our salads. The longest I have been in the restaurant was maybe 1 hr 10 minutes and Saturday we were there over 2 hrs, and they were not busy at the time we were there. Not happy with Saturday's service!!

    We've been to this location probably 10 times, and always enjoy it. This past Saturday (10/25) was the busiest it's ever been. Even the side rooms were open. Too busy, really, for the staff to keep up. They were, as always, polite, but we felt rushed. Rushed to place a drink order, rushed to select our meals, and the food came out fast. Our second round of drinks took almost 20 minutes and two of the steaks - same cut, different temperature - were mixed up. With the fast food and slow drinks, the experience wasn't the enjoyable Ruth's Chris we usually look forward to. The waitstaff was incredibly polite but a $360 dinner shouldn't be over in 85 minutes. We'll be back, but it was disappointing.

    My boyfriend and I celebrated my birthday here. The staff was very awesome. My boyfriend had a flower arrangement delivered to the restaurant before we arrived. The staff was so kind to set up our table so nice with the arrangement before our arrival. Our waiter Daniel was awesome, also the others staff members we encountered. The food was excellent; I had the berries with cream sauce and sorbet as my FREE dessert with dinner. The ambiance was great with the exception of a very loud table close by. My overall experience at RC, Mohegan Sun was great. Thanks again

    I knew of Ruth's by reputation and planned lodging choice based on the restaurant. I was very glad for my choice. Service staff was attentive and very helpful. The food was excellent and the portions were generous. I was pleased to see that the online menu is only the main items they offer. From oysters to cocktails everything was excellent. Filet and Ribeye were excellent. When I go again I will ask for the sauce I added on the side though so I can enjoy the quality steak and control the amount of sauce.

    The meal I had (filet mignon) was the most delicious piece of meat I have ever eaten. It was cooked to perfection and served on a hot dish to keep the meat warm during dining. The sides were also very good. The wine was outstanding. The meal is pricey, but worth every penny. I'd go again without a doubt.

    Well this was my boyfriends birthday so I wanted to take him somewhere classy. As this was my first time eating there, it lived up to it's reputation. The food was excellent & I have eaten at many iron chef restaurants in NYC & AC so it is exciting to have something of this caliber in our area! Our server John was amazing as well as all the other staff that assisted us. My bf said it was the best birthday he's had so thank you!

    It seems expensive due to everything being a la carte, but you get what you pay for! The steak was cooked to perfection, the sides are large and so you can share them, the servers are detail oriented and we didn't have to wait for a thing! It's a must try!

    I love this place but not happy with server- seemed a bit unpleasant but accommodating. Server was not truthful and wanted to charge more if I switched a side. I may not return a 3rd. time- Caesar salad soggy & steak for two was a bit too dry @ medium well.

    The steaks were nice pieces of meat, just not prepared the way a steak should be. Because the steak was not allowed to rest for about ten minutes before serving, all the juices came flooding out in the first cut of meat, not having the chance to reassemble into the meat, just keeping the steak a bit on the tough side. The steak was cooked well, medium rare, just not a very tender piece of meat for a prime t-bone. Quite disappointing actually. A manager came to our table and said the steak "sounded good", referring to the sizzle. I would have preferred it be quiet and well rested before being brought to the table. This is an ordinary restaurant serving good steaks prepared poorly at extremely high prices..quite a trick.

    We had two meals: ribeye, and shrimp and scallions. The ribeye was very good. The shrimp and scallions only came with two shrimp and three scallions, so it seemed a little short of a full meal. We ordered lobster mac and cheese, which was not very good, and asparagus with hollandaise, which was very good.

    The food was excellent. They have two special priced menus which are on their regular menu. The portions are very substantial and we older folks tend to eat lesser amounts. The steaks were cooked to perfection. Make reservations early, the restaurant is always full. We look forward to our next visit.

    Went here for my fiance's birthday. The food was delicious. However, they ran out of the drink that he wanted and did not comp us for another one. Also,they did not put candle in the dessert cake or make the experience special even though I told the hostess that we were celebrating his birthday. Overall, the food was well worth it, but the service could have been better.

    This restaurant was not up to normal standards of Ruth's Chris restaurants we have previously visited. The steak was fatty and had a lot of grizzle. The creamed spinach was the same as we were accustomed to. The lyonnaise potatoes were overcooked and greasy. The coffee was weak.

    We are repeat customers and always had great food and service. This time they were a little off. I had the lobster and it was the toughest I ever had. Might I add it was $72! Very disappointed. Our waiter last 2 times was great, this time our waitress was not anywhere near as attentive. Ordered an expensive wine and no one ever came over to refill our glasses. A little off for an expensive bottle of wine and a Remy Martin after dinner drink. Party of 5 sat down when we were leaving and apparently one of the workers knew them & the got great service. Won't be back anyime soon.
