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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I love coming to Ruth's Chris! The food is phenomenal! The service is always great!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Started with the roasted oysters, the best! Great service from entering the establishment all the way through exiting - very customer service-centric. Outstanding food, especially the steaks. Perfect portions, not huge but still left with doggie bag. The 500 degree plates are ideal for the servings. Spinach au gratin is amazing."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Impeccable service. Excellent chopped salad creatively plated. Petite filet was perfectly cooked but drenched in butter. The buttery aroma smelled more like lobster than steak. I know this is a trademark of Ruth Chris but it seemed overly buttered and didn't agree with me later in. Chocolate Explosion was Just ok. Nothing unusual."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "This was my first time here and it was the best food we had ever eaten. We had NY strip and filet. My wife and I both thought that it was the best. The salad, bread, and baked potato were all off the chart. Our server, Jake, did a great job of making us feel at home. This is my new favorite restaurant."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Ruth's Chris has always been my favorite restaurant for an excellent steak. Unfortunately this time, that was not the case. We ordered the petite filets and both were swimming in butter. A little is good but, this was overpowering and certainly not for $39. We couldn't taste the flavor of the steak for the butter. The best part of the meal was the Veal Osso Buco Ravioli appetizer. I would have preferred to have had that for my meal. We were interrupted four times by our waitress asking "is everything delicious?". I also think it is also time to add some healthier choices to the sides menu. On this visit, the meal wasn't worth the price and I was very disappointed."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "The food was absolutely outstanding but the waiter seemed peeved when we didnt order a cocktail and appetizers. He then brought out one that was prepared completely opposite of how I ordered my food and seemed shocked when I told him I didnt like it."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "As I have said before, we eat at Ruth's Chris every chance we get since it is our favorite prime steakhouse chain. Our favorite one, which we consider our "home" restaurant, is in Columbus, OH. The Charlotte SouthPark restaurant is equally as good, though. There were 6 people in our party, including our 6 and 3 year old granddaughters. Our server, Emily, was absolutely wonderful. She was friendly, courteous, knowledgeable, and attentive to our every need. The food was all prepared to order and was excellent in taste as well as presentation. My ribeye was the best I have ever had. Even the chicken strips on the children's menu were delicious. Kenneth, the sommelier, made an excellent wine recommendation, as usual. Cannot wait to visit again."

  • "We have been to Ruth's Chris several times & have never been disappointed in the high quality of the food items, accompanied by excellence in service. This particular dinner was for a month-long special menu of Cajun/Creole items (including the drinks). The restaurant had its origins in New Orleans, so this was a special treat. Our server, Kate, was excellent, friendly, & presented us with just the right amount of suggestions for our dinner. The wine list here is extensive & pairs perfectly with all food items. Please note, Ruth's Chris normal menu specializes in signature steaks, with offerings of shrimp, lobster, lamb chops, chicken, & fish."

  • "Boyfriend and I dine here only rarely. My supervisor kept wanting to go so her/husband dined with us. Nice evening. Caught up on "unoffice" conversation. Nice place to go. Quiet. The waitstaff is alway courteous, friendly and observant. Did not have to wait long for return to fill up wine glasses or water. Orders were taken promptly allowing enough time from appetizers, salad to the main course. The desserts are to die for. Great place. Save up the cash it is not a .99cent place like Hardees."

  • "I love to go for a special occasion. You get what you pay for. I recommend Ruth Chris to all my friends."

  • "I had a birthday dinner for my wife and Michael was a gentleman. He had great recommendations for wine and we found that to be appealing, especially for the occasion at hand."

  • "My wife and I enjoyed our dinning experience at this restaurant! Our waiter David was excellent and the other staff were attentive and provided excellent service. We will be returning!"

  • "We love Ruth Chris. The lump crabtini is so delicious. Wine list, one of the best. Every time we go, we are never disappointed!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Wow below average for Ruth's. My guest and I were shocked at how poor the service was. We ask for the wine not to be decanted and he decanted anyway. The first wine we ordered they were out of, that only took 25 minutes, then he brought another that we did not want, he exchanged for one we did then poured in decanted when we were trying to tell him not to too! The steak was medium rare and I ordered medium plus. The potatoes were cold and greasy. The guy tries to shake my hand while I am eating , not clean hands please . Oh well I usually like Ruth but this was not up to standards for Ruth."

  • "This was a nice dinner out for us. We just had a baby and were treated so well. We were wined and dined and even given some celebratory champagne."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Went to the restaurant to celebrate my birthday. I knew in advance that I wanted lobster, but did not know we should have reserved the lobster. Reservation was for 6:30 and we were told that they only had one 3 lb and one 4 lb lobster left. We ordered the larger one and shared. So, next time we will reserve our lobster. Everything else was fine. I would not say amazing, but of good quality."

  • "This is a good old fashioned steak house with excellent cuts of beef perfectly cooked. In my opinion the best steak house in Charlotte."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "My husband and I are frequent diners at the Palm and a couple of the other high end steak houses in the area and had not made it to Ruth's before. We were very happy that we chose to come on Saturday. The dining room was beautiful and romantic. The service was great and truly friendly - not fake and forced like many other spots. Best of all the steaks were superb. The plates are extremely hot and it keeps the steaks nice and steamy throughout the meal. The flourless chocolate cake was a nice way to end the evening. Meredith was our server and I would request her again. Great experience overall."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "As always, a very special evening with the welcome that you get when you first walk in, to the excellent service from Nate and the delicious food and great goodbye at the end! They make you feel so special!!!!"

  • "I treated my 13 year twins to dinner to celebrate their good grades in school. It was absolutely delightful. They were tickled when the host referred to them as Mr and Miss. That made them feel special."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "A friend and I enjoyed a much needed night out one Friday evening and we had the best time! We were greeted by Nate at the front door and another Nate waited on our table. The Nates are great! :) They recommended a delicious Sauvignon Blanc and our Steaks were cooked to perfection. The General Manager, Hunter introduced himself and checked in on us regularly. We were able to relax and enjoy ourselves for a few peaceful hours away from the kids and we will definitely be back soon."

  • "It was my husband and I's first time at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and we were not disappointed. We had impeccable service, delicious food and a wonderful time together. We normally "eat and run" within 45 minutes of dining when we go out, but our time at Ruth's Chris was romantic and paced well. We enjoyed our dinner, 4 courses, within 1.5 hours. We will definitely go back for another date night!"

  • "What a fantastic meal. The staff was welcoming and attentive and we felt like we were home having dinner. Try the oysters-they are on a special menu for feature and were delicious. The sommelier even sent a taste of wine that paired with the oysters perfectly! Steaks were perfection but how can you go wrong with a 500 degree plate and melted butter? Can't wait to return!!"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Pleasant atmosphere, professional yet courteous staff, eloquent furnishings, choice of food was more offering with a cajun flair. Ruth Chris salad was outstanding,, we normally spilt the salad to same room for another appetizer and our entree and another side."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Ruth's Chris is one of our favorite steak houses in town. The overall food quality, cut and preparation of the beef is outstanding! The atmosphere is romantic and impressive, with ample space between the tables to allow for privacy. The service is friendly and extremely attentive. The patio is perfect for drinks and dinner during the summer months. We have never had a bad experience here. Highly recommend!"

  • "Despite a late, last minute, reservation on President's day, I could not have asked for a better experience than the one delivered by the staff of Ruth's Chris in Southpark. From the hostess ensuring the flowers I delivered earlier were on the table when we arrived, to our server David even decanting the wine before we got there, the service was absolutely flawless from start to finish. The spicy lobster and seared tuna were both amazing, and our perfectly prepared porterhouse was both delicious, and the most impressive looking cut of steak I've ever had the priviledge of enjoying. Despite my girlfriend and I having both worked at other fine dining steakhouses in Charlotte, we could not have imagined a more perfect dinner. Thank you!"
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "Food was very good but extremely over-priced. Service was excellent. I was surprised at how casual so many of the diners were - it seems that a $75 dinner is no reason to put on nice clothes and clean up a bit."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "As always our visit to Ruth Chris was fabulous. The food and service is always impeccable."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "This is my husband's favorite restaurant, and is my close second favorite. We've been to many Ruth's Chris around the country and this one did not live up to the name. The one in uptown is better, to be sure. I'm not sure if it was because it was Valentine's Day, but the food and service were average, at best. Our waiter was pretty bad, and he passed by our table relatively early in the visit telling the manager rather excitedly that someone was on their second bottle of $250 wine-tacky. Then the manager chastised a young boy for almost running into me (it really wasn't an issue-he was hauling away what looked to be recycling and the least I could do was let him go first). Wouldn't recommend b/c of service and food. Go elsewhere"
