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.

    My wife & I had an awesome dining experience , this is our third straight year dining there on our wedding anniversary. The food, ambience & service were outstanding. The only down side was the extremely LOUD party of 8 seated adjacent to us , making it hard for my wife & I to communicate.

    There was no waiting for a table. The service was definitely outstanding both in attention but not too much attention. The food was excellent. We had one of the special dinners that included salad, main course, sides, and desert. Wine that we chose was new to us and was very good and would have it again.

    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!

    Where to begin? Ruth's Chris just cannot be beat when it comes to being the whole package. The food,while pricey, is devine. The service is impeccable. It offers the best steaks in town. I know that Charlotte has several steak houses but honestly the others are overrated. We'll certainly go back!

    My girlfriend and I recently came in to celebrate our one year anniversary. They had rose pedals laid out on the table as a special touch for our occasion. 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.

    Dined on 7/25/2014
    We go to Ruth's Chris at South Park quite frequently because we love the filet. We ordered it, of course, this past Friday night. It was no where near the good filet we are used to. A lot of grizzle. Maybe they changed the fillet for Queens Feast because of cost issues??? Tyler and Emily were absolutely fabulous and we will request them again. We will give them another chance when Queens Feast is over but we won't be going back there during the event again.

    Disappointing
    Dined on 7/25/2014
    My wife and I went here for restuarant week and the portion sizes and food were surprisingly disappointing!!!! I ordered the lettuce wedge which was less than 1/8th of a head of lettuce.....maybe 2 fork fulls.....the Filet was only 6 oz and then another $14 to upgrade to an 11 oz and the sides less than a single size portion. The wine list was extensive, however, the bottles of wine were way too expensive unless you wanted the one or two ones on special. Bottom line, for the amount of money we spent here for Restuarant Week after the upgrades and to still be hungry afterwards, we should have gone to many of the other wonderful restuarants that weren't so cost conscious and actually offered enough food for the money. We won't return.

    Even though it was Restaurant week and packed Ruth's Chris staff was as efficient as ever. Greeted by the beautiful and gracious Elaine and taken to our favorite booth by another lovely young lady the evening was a delight. Both Steve and Christy came by to speak to us and our favorite waiter Dave gave us his usual wonderful service. The drinks and the food were superb as usual. At Ruth's Chris you are treated so special. Liz

    The salad chef and expositor had quite a nerve sending out a couple of Wedges that were unaccectable. The other disappointment was the desert that seems to never change on the Retaurant Week menu. Please come up with something other than the cheesecake and chocolate. It's the cheesecake that's objectable.

    Every time I have been to Ruth Chris, the hostesses are friendly, I have a great server and the food is consistently fabulous! Personally, I love the South Park location because it is a brighter restaurant. I also love to eat outside when weather permits. I have given up all other steak houses in Charlotte because they are always a bit of a disappointment and I wish I were back at Ruth Chris .
