Diner Reviews
  • "Our whole experience at Ruth Chris was wonderful, from the waiter to the food. My husband and I love the Banana Cream Pie."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Food was delicious as usual. Service was fine, although nothing extraordinary. My significant other and I are on the younger side and I feel that we were treated differently as a result, which is a bit annoying considering that we don't fit that "stereotype" of customer. Overall a good experience."

  • "My family and I took my daughter for dinner at Ruth's Chris for a farewell dinner before a long trip. The food was excellent as usual. Our waiter was very knowledgable about the menu and the wine list. He was friendly and personable and paid extra attention to the guest of honor and her friend, making the girls feel extra special. Every time, we eat at Ruth Chris's, we have an awesome and enjoyable time. It is definitely worth the 45 minute drive from our home."

  • "his was not our first visit to your restaurant there at the Inner Harbor. We are returning customers because of the good food and great wait staff. Brian was our waiter when we were there celebrating an anniversary back in 2010 (or 2011?) and he remembered us last Saturday. Jamee was also very good to us!!!!"

  • "Nothing compares to a the sizzling steak from Ruth's. An outstanding meal and wonderful service."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "I have always enjoyed Ruths Chris Restaurant. Being from Ct. I have only eaten at the one in state. The Baltimore location was conveniently located in the hotel I was staying in so if it wasnt already an easy choice that sealed the deal. We received the experience I would expect from Ruths Chris. Our waitress was excellent and knowledgeable. Our food came out in just the right amount of time and was prepared perfectly. One of the other things I like about Ruth's Chris is the rotating martini list. I get to try something different almost every time I go. This time did not disappoint. If you are in the area and are looking for an excellent meal in a, quiet intimate location, this is for you."

  • "Took my two sons out to celebrate graduation. They were excited to go. The service and food were excellent. Service and friendliness of the whole staff was top notch, from the welcome, to dinner service, to helping to find the restrooms. We'd love to come back and bring some friends. Thank you for a great experience and helping us to celebrate!"

    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "I've been to several Ruth's Chris locations (at least 5) and always had a great meal and exceptional service. Our recent visit to the Pier 5 location was an entirely different experience. Our waiter was not attentive, we had to ask for him several times, he didn't bring half the items we asked for whether it be a drink or a side of lemon, and half the time a different waitress would have to help us because he was gone for such long spans of time. When we were finished our meal, we had to find the manager to request our check after waiting no less than 20 minutes. If this had been my first visit to a Ruth's Chris I would never have gone to one again. "

  • "Love the outdoor patio and the water views at Ruths Chris Pier 5. There's a great happy hour menu as well and check for live entertainment as weather warms up. Food was excellent and service top notch. The valet service is excellent, as well. "

  • "The food was fabulous the service was fantastic and it made our anniversary dinner very special. Would highly consider going just to go for date nights"

  • "Ruth's Chris always delivers in terms of food and the service at this location is impecable. The wait straff is great (especially Mel). Can't wait to go back!"

  • "The only thing better than the food was the service. First class experience!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Food was excellent but the only thing that came with the meal was bread and tap water. We went to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary on our daughter's recommendation. She gave us a coupon as she had been there recently and knew we'd like it. I had a filet and my wife used the coupon for a petite filet. Other than that we shared one side and drank tap water. With parking and tips we spent nearly a hundred dollars. Never been to a Ruth's Chris before and will likely never return as I'm retired and on a fixed income and it's simply beyond our means...which is too bad as it was the best steak I've ever had."

  • "We had a lovely time. The food was delicious and service was terrific. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We have dined at many Ruth's Chris Steakhouses around the country and this is our least favorite....by far. The hostess was very rude, our server seemed rushed, and our table overlooked the front door. There is another Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in downtown Baltimore and we recommend that you dine there instead. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Polite friendly staff. Great service. Attentive. The food was cooked as ordered. Wouldn't hesitate to do again and recommend it to everyone."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We were in a rush before an Orioles game, so ate in the bar. The additional bonus was wass the Masters on the TV. The service was outstanding, as were the ribeyes and Caesar salads. Excellent flavors!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The Pier 5 Ruth's Chris food is every bit as good as the other locations in the Baltimore area (Water Street and Pikesville), but the atmosphere is a little bit more intimate. We particularly like the bar area, which is dark and clubby and just how you'd want it to be for a steakhouse. No surprises on the food - standard RCSH fare - but that's a good thing. Our server, Alton, did an excellent job."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "love Pier 5 over all the other RC's out there. great layout, nice outside dining, wonderful service and oh my gosh the food is so good!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "This was our first time at a Ruth's Chris and we were so impressed! The steaks were superb and the soup salads and asparagus were just as good! We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an amazing dinner!"
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Steaks are very tender but cooked or marinated in butter. I want to taste the steak, not the trough of butter. It was too much butter & actually upset stomachs a bit. Portions to share are a bit smaller than in past visits. The website says about the expense being from $30 to $50...that's per entree not per meal per person. A $30 chicken breast or a $41 to $50 steak. One can get larger steaks, same quality in multi packs of 4 or more for less at costco or SAMs club. I'd have to rethink going back here."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "Love this restaurant -- our meal was outstanding and the service was spectacular!"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Fabulous place for a bday boy that loves a good steak! Place was very nice for children with a fabulous, knowledgeable server. The food came out exactly as ordered in a perfectly timed manner. Very good experience and great bday dinner for our son who loved his steak and "birthday cake" after dinner. Thank you!"

  • "Dined here after alerting them to Hubby's special birthday. While some special treatments were unexpected (choice of table location, rose petals on table and fantastic complimentary dessert) the service was sub-par and disappointing. Starting with champagne being served in wine glasses (waiter completely unfamiliar with wine in general- attempted to open twist-off with corkscrew?) to several attempts to clear our food before we were finished eating. Both the broccoli gratin and shoestring potatoes were disappointing, but the steaks perfectly prepared. Sadly, we won't be back. For our steak-dining-dollar, we'll head elsewhere, there are plenty of places in town that do it right. Very disappointed."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "What a wonderful evening. We celebrated my birthday with my wife, step daughter and daughter and two sons. This was my kids first time experiencing fine dining and they loved it. Food was excellent and our server David Paster was fantastic. We asked for him specifically due to our positive past experiences with him serving our table in the past. We will be back to celebrate there again. Thank you for a wonderful evening."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The service and food is great. I have never had a bad meal there. Great place for a celebration. My favorite place in Baltimore for a steak."

  • "As always Ruth's Chris @ Pier 5 was amazing. The steaks are always perfectly cooked and the sides are amazing."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We took our daughter and son-in-law out for dinner because this is her favorite restaurant. Ruth's Chris did not disappoint. The food was great. We did get the appetizers but were too full for dessert. Our server, Miles, was excellent. Thank you for another wonderful dining experience. We look forward to dining there again."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "It was me and my significant other's Valentine's dinner. We work odd schedules so very difficult for us to have a dinner date. I really was impressed with the service and the environment. Miles was our server and was very good. The food was delicious and served very hot. I will go back for dinner again."

  • "My last time visiting was 2/23/14 in the evening. We went on a double-date night, expecting a quiet evening over great food. Filet was amazing as always. Problem #1, we were seated at one of the back 3 tables near the kitchen. Problem #2, the staff were speaking loudly, laughing loudly, and a waiter even yelled out an apology to the staff behind the kitchen door when he dropped an entire tray of dishes. I also observed that the patrons are starting to dress-down in jeans and polo's to eat here; not what you expect in a dress jacket atmosphere, although this might be blamed on restaurant week patrons. I plan on visiting again, but wonder if shouldn't stick with the Water Street location."

  • "Took my wife to Ruth's Chris Pier 5 at the Inner Harbor for Valentine's Day - one of her favorite restaurants. Special menu worked perfectly for us. Huge shrimp cocktail and Ahi tuna apps were outstanding, salads were fresh made and very tasty. Can't beat the filet mignon here - perfectly prepared and fork tender. Love that sizzle! Add a couple of drinks and some decadent desserts and you have the perfect meal with your sweetheart. Can't wait for our next visit - and it will definitely be before next Valentine's Day!"

    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "My birthday is Valentine's Day and so my husband and I decided to go out and chose Ruth's Chris at Pier 5 for the occasion. It was amazing from start to finish. Upon arrival, we were promptly greeted and I was given a rose before being seated. Our sweet waitress Brooke was able to make it great experience and was knowledgable and helpful in our selections. Even though our appetizer, meals and drinks were filling, take my advice and don't skip dessert. And while you're taking my advice... get the creme brulee! Instead of heading out downtown for drinks afterward, we simply moved to the bar and continued our evening. The staff was great, though it was swamped since it was Valentine's day."
