A word from Ruth's Chris Steak House - Charlotte - South Park
Welcome to Ruth's Chris Steak House. As founder Ruth Fertel used to say, "If you've ever had a filet this good, welcome back." We take steak seriously, but we're also serious about making sure you have a good time. So you won't find the stodgy, uptight attitude you might find at other steak houses. Our SouthPark location, created in the classic Southern style, features a spacious dining room and private dining areas. Surrounded by dark hardwoods and artisan tiling, you'll feel as if you're back in New Orleans. All beef is USDA Prime, prepared in 1800 degree broilers and served on 500 degree plates, and all accoutrements inspired by Ruth's New Orleans heritage. Let us know of any specific requests for an evening with that special someone, and we'll take care of the details. Life's too short to eat anywhere else.

    Went to Ruth's Chris for the first time as we had received a gift card from a co-worker. Absolutely loved everything. Our server David was great. Did not rush us and was very good at explaining their menu and what it is that sets Ruth Chris apart from other steakhouses in Charlotte. Not a single thing I drank or ate disappointed. The two petite filets with the lump crab and the New Orleans BBQ Butter was AMAZING! Definitely look forward to another date night as this will be my recommendation!

    Ravioli
    Dined on 10/10/2014
    Dinner at Ruth Chris is always a Special Time because the food is great. As an appetizer, we had Veal Ravioli with spinach and it was GREAT. The other appetizer was barbecue shrimp and it was GREAT. The spinach as our side dish was too bland and I reported it to our server - Kelly. She was nice and had it removed from the bill. I was surprised and pleased because it makes me want to returned. Our main course was also great. As always, we enjoy our food and the atmosphere. Have more specials for we used the gift card from the last special offer given earlier this year. Just continue the good service and we will return.

    Take my wife to dinner for her 40th birthday as she enjoys fine dining, particularly steaks. RC at South Park once again did not disappoint. Our server Shelly was outstanding, right down to remembering to put ginger ale in my "sparkling wine" glass (as designated driver) to match my wife's Champaign for the birthday dessert. The steaks, wine and sides were excellent as expected.

    We arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation and was seated promptly. Within 5 minutes the server was asking for our drink orders which definitely set the tone for the evening. Very professional and knowledgable of the menu/bar. Food presentation was great and absolutely delicious and drinks were stiff. Large portions, could not eat it all. Server asked for our valet parking ticket and got our vehicle in advance (extra touch). The service that evening was OUTSTANDING! It made our wedding anniversary celebration even more special.

    I chose Ruth's Chris Steakhouse to celebrate my birthday with my husband and it did not disappoint. We selected the summer menu which included a salad or soup, entree & dessert for $49.95! My husband's strawberry blue cheese almond salad was light and summery and my corn chowder was delicious. We shared both. My steak and lobster tail was cooked perfectly and my husband, who insists on just the right amount of pinkness to his meat was also very pleased. I have 2 criticisms. They use an inordinate amount of butter-the green beans as well as my steak and lobster was covered in it. Also, they use bacon without mentioning it on the menu. I had to pick it out of my soup since I can't have nitrates and the potatoes were covered as well.

    Had a very nice anniversary dinner at Ruth's Chris this past weekend. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. The main dining room is quite large and brighter than I would have expected. Don't know it that's due to the ongoing renovations, or not. Regardless, we had a great meal and a wonderful time!

    For my first time here I was absolutely blown away. Corn chowder had amazing flavor and the filet with blue cheese crust and lobster tail was probably one of the best I've ever had. Cooked perfectly. My friend had the ribeye and said it was amazing. Sides are big enough to share. Our server, Nate, was awesome. Very fun, personable and knowledgable about the menu. Gave great suggestions. He made our experience exactly what it was. Amazing. Can't wait to go back!

I know that Charlotte has several steak houses but honestly the others are overrated. We'll certainly go back!

We had Jamaar as our server and he took legendary service to a whole new level. He was extremely professional and very knowledgeable regarding any questions we had about the menu and wine list. The steaks were so tender you didn't need a knife to cut into it. Our dinner was so enjoyable it was all we were talking about for the next few days. This is the best place to come for a special occasion dinner because the staff will go above and beyond to make it memorable. We can't wait to come back

    Ruth's Chris is always my go-to place for special occasions or a fun night out with friends. Seven of us met there recently for dinner and wine, were seated promptly, and were well cared for by the attentive yet unobtrusive wait staff. The waiters are always knowledgeable about wine selection, and this visit was no exception. We enjoyed a couple of bottles of a wonderful Cabernet, and our steaks were cooked to perfection. Highly recommend!

    We had the opportunity to be seated outside and it was wonderful. But the steaks were not good as they had been last year and the service was slow. (For instance, I would have had another glass of wine if our server had inquired sooner. ) I like a crust on my steak and our steaks had little color.

    Table for 4, we were packed in the center of the Dinning area with neighboring tables too close, almost claustrophobic feeling. My wife sent her steak back, too much pepper. It's replacement was a much nicer and a more tender cut. My pork chop was very tasty however the garlic mashed potatoes were not as hot as I liked. The couple dinning with us enjoyed their steak and chicken.
