    I always go to Ruth Chris in OC Md. For my birthday month of August ! Was so happy they had a 2 1/2 lb lobster left . It was cooked to perfection . My husband orders the chicken breast , it's moist and his favorite . Others at our table had their favs including the Ribeye which was just the right pinkness and tender . They brought out a dessert and sang happy birthday . Our experiences there have always been top notch , with smiling happy wait staff and a beautiful view of the golf course .

    With so many LESS than spectacular dining options in the OCMD, from poorly run chain restaurants to schlocky local restaurants it is an absolute comfort to know that a first class, well run, Ruth's Chris is an option in the village of Glen Riddle. Five of us sampled from both the chef's special menu and the regular menu and every plate went back to the kitchen empty. From the New York Strip, to the PorterHouse for two, to the Surf & Turf to the Cowboy Rib-eye. Each dish cooked perfectly to order and expertly handled by a terrific and well trained wait staff. The wine list offered a few subtle surprises, but the best surprise were the fair prices versus retail and our server knew to decant prior to serving same. Exceptional find in OCMD

    This Ruth's Chris Steak House is what I expect of this restaurant chain. Frankly, I was surprised to discover a restaurant of this calliber in this location. It was a treat for celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary! We like that this fine restaurant is away from the hustle and bustle of the beach. Excellent service.

    Excellent dinner with great steaks. Had the petite filets and the sweet potato casserole. The sweet potato dish should not be missed - best ever. Started with wedge salad and tomato/onion salads. Both were large and could easily shared by two. Finished with banana cream dessert. Great all around with excellent service.

    My husband and I were celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary. The filet mignon and lobster were amazing! The staff was extremely professional and kind. They explained the history of GlenRiddle Stables. We were given complimentary champagne because it was our wedding anniversary. Additionally we received a complementary honey cinnamon cheesecake for dessert for the same reason. Both were totally unexpected, but wonderful!

    I have been to a few Ruth's Chris restaurants around the country and expect a certain level of service, food and ambiance at this chain. Depending on the area, it is understandable for some differences. The Ocean City Ruth's Chris was a very different experience. While the food and the staff were outstanding, the other patrons were not. There were two tables with young children. At one were babies with high-chairs. I would not expect this at a RC normally, especially at 8pm. The screaming was quite unpleasant. We moved to the other room where there were young children at another table. After some time they began running around the table and room. I expected the OC RC to be a little more laid back, but this was ridiculous.

    One of the more unusual Ruth's Chris locations I've been to, and I've been to about 20 different ones - but very nice as usual. Food was typical RCSH, very good, although a little heavy on the butter (seriously, do we need butter on the broiled tomatoes?) We loved the special potatoes - roasted fingerlings in a creamy chipotle dressing. Steaks and salads (and drinks) were excellent, as usual. We didn't have room for dessert this time, but I will vouch for the banana cream pie (which I've had on previous visits to this location) - it's fantastic. Service was a little off this time around...RCSH uses the team approach, but it seemed like our "team" didn't get along, so we had a solo server. At times, it was noticeable.

    We celebrated a birthday on June 28, 2014, and the Ruth Chris experience was very disappointing. The server Stacey really did not want to be working that evening. She never came back to the table to check on refreshing drinks, how the meal was, or if we needed anything. The manager did a good job in covering for her lack of attention, and even brought requested side plates to the table. Stacey kept reminding us that it was a team waiting on us, and displayed much attitude when we stated that the service was lacking. She didn’t even come back to the table to pick up the check. I’ve been to the Ocean City and Baltimore locations before, and the service had always been favorable.

    Our favorite Ruth's location! More relaxed, casual & bright than any other location we have been to and the staff is friendly & not stuffy. Plus the history of the unique location inside of an old horse stable adds to the experience. Oh yeah, the food....Awesome! We had our usual filet & ribeye and they were cooked perfectly along with the lyonnaise potatoes, mushrooms & Caesar salad yummy! It's a little ways outside of OC, but definitely worth it.

    Pricey, but worth it. Ruth's Chris uses a team approach to serving its guests so you are never without anything you need or want. The menu is a la carte but sides and salads are generous size and easily shared by 2 diners. One of my favorite places when I want to treat myself.

    We have a vacation home in OCMD and wanted something a little more upscale to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were not dissappointed. Everything was excellent. This location is set in the old Glen Riddle horse farm now converted into a development with two golf courses. The equine ambiance remains. The restaurant itself looks like the old stables. The fact that we were there on Kentucky Derby day made it more exciting! Lots of fun. The seared tuna and the calamari apps were awesome. The steaks are always superb. No room for dessert. Will have to go back.

    My wife and I recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the OC Ruth Chris. They greeted us with a complimentary glass of champaign. The waiters were attentive but not bothersome. The Crabtini was outstanding (as usual), the filet was tender and cooked as ordered. The shrimp and lobster was tasty and tender. Our desert (cheesecake) was also very good and again, complementary. A 1st class restaurant.

    Awesome as always. My wife and I enjoy the food, service and ambience. Great for special occasions. Our server was fantastic, giving us suggestions on splitting the sides which are way too big for one person. She gave us thorough instructions and suggestions and then her service was like a ninja, in and out without making a scene. You look down and your water was filled, your empty plate removed, just excellent.

    We have been to Ruth's Chris (other locations) before and thought this was a surefire hit for our V-Day night, alas we were a little disappointed. Firstly though, service was excellent, attentive w/o being overbearing. I understand it was Valentine's Day, but we were sat in what appeared to be the "private event room" on a regular night. Off to the side of the main dining area and little stuffy in it's decor, kind of felt like we were being punished. Secondly, I know most steakhouses finish their steaks with butter for that yummy velvety feel we love, however, both our filets were swimming in a pool of butter, NOT good. Potatoes au gratin were very bland, just sliced potatoes with melted cheddar on top, no seasoning. Would try again..

    We ate here for my husbands birthday. The food was very good and our server was wonderful. We brought our 3 year old daughter as it was daddy's birthday. It was a Thursday night so not very crowded and she is well behaved so it was a pleasant experience. The setting of the old horse stables makes this the nicest Ruth's Chris I have been to.
