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.

    The food, service and atmosphere is always on point with your occasion. The steaks are great and if you don't finish eating all there the next day they still taste great. That should let you know the quality of food being served and just how well it is prepared.

    We had a 7:30 reservation for a party of 4 but when we got there we were directed to the bar area where we weren't seated until well after 8. We were offered a complimentary appetizer on the house. After we ordered the food took quite a while to come out so we got full off of bread and salads. By the time the food came we weren't hungry anymore.

    No complaints here. Service was top notch. Newly remodeled dining room looks great. Steaks - awesome, best in town. Cooked exactly as ordered. Side dishes plentiful. Wine was exceptional. Dessert was divine. Hands down the best steak house in town. The place across the street doesn't hold a candle to Ruth's Chris in my opinion. Love the Southpark location.

    Ruth's Chris South Park is one of our favorite places to dine in Charlotte, & there are so many great restaurants here! General Manager, Kenneth Pace really went above board knowing I was coming in to celebrate my (ahem) "39th birthday". Thank you Kenneth & server Ben for making my evening extra special. Aside from being treated like "queen for a day", all those special "touches" had me leaving with a big smile on my face. The food and presentation was extraordinary as always, and that birthday song that my husband planned with them for when my candlelit piece of cake was served was truly a GRAND FINALE to the occasion. A big THANK YOU to Kenneth, Ben & all our friends at Ruth's Chris!

    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!

    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.

    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!
