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
  • "This is a place that my husband I go for special occasions and we are never disappointed. The food is great! The service is usually excellent, but this visit it was a little off. Not horrible, but not up to their usual excellent plus standards. Will definitely return!"

  • "Ruth's Chris is a first rate steakhouse with a reputation to uphold and they do exactly that - food is well-prepared and tasty and service is attentive. We had a group of seven to celebrate a birthday and just being able to get together over the 4th of July weekend. We do generally bring our own wines and appreciate their "no corkage" fee policy. We do tip appropriately for the service. Ruth's Chris is a no worries choice for dining."

  • "First day waiter was not good. It was my wife's birthday and when we ordered dessert the waiter said it was taken care of and we thought Ruth Chris treated. It wasn't until the next day that our daughter asked if we like HER treat. Why didn't the restaurant tell us that? We had a total of 3 premium gin martinis which cost $42. Way over priced !! Won't be going to Ruth Chris again. To many other good restaurants in Charlotte that have just as good steak and the martinis are 10 or 11 dollars, not 14."

  • "We were celebrating my husband's birthday. Kenneth Pace, the manager, graciously brought us sparkling wine to toast to Gordon's birthday. Then we were given a complimentary appetizer. The veal osso buco is great. Dinner was wonderful. We shared a cowboy ribeye, which was cooked perfectly. The sides were huge and delicious. I especially like the broccoli au gratin. We complemented our meal with a bottle of Axios, another excellent recommendation by Kenneth. Our server, Emily, always does a fantastic job."

  • "Food is consistently great & this time we had an incredible waiter. I can't wait to go back. Michael Miles (our waiter) made the perfect. What a great guy & waiter. Thanks to everyone at Southpark Ruth Chris for making this a night to remember. See you soon"

  • "Food was excellent as well as wait staff. However, it was 90 degrees outside and the air was not working in restaurant. Wait staff was sweating and we ended up taking our food home to finish because it was so uncomfortable in restaurant. Would have been nice if we were told upfront that this was an issue with the air as we could have had an option to dine in air conditioning. Too much $ to be hot while you eat."

  • "We had dinner on Father's Day. The calamari was fabulous...the chop salad fantastic and the filet delicious. The service was the we've had in a long time. Can't wait to go again."

  • "Absolutely outstanding service & food for fathers day brunch. Waitress was unbelievably perceptive, addressed us by name & even arranged valet ready for us when we left."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We celebrated my wife's birthday. The food was prepared well and very enjoyable. The only negative was that they packaged both my son's and my food together. I expected them to keep our entrée separate."

  • "Steaks never fail to impress. Salads are always fresh. Love how they always ask if you are celebrating anything special. We were celebrating with our 14 year old son for having all A's his freshman year of high school while battling some unforeseen health issues. So proud. When the waiter found thus out not only did he bring him a special dessert he also gave him a high five. Made his night. We will be back time after time."

  • "We dined at Ruth's Chris for my birthday. Food/service were outstanding. The only complaint I have was the price of our pre dinner drinks. When we go to a restaurant like htis for a nice meal I expect higher prices but $17 for a martini? That's a bit high (even though it was very good!)."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Had a great experience at Ruth's Chris on Saturday night. Got to the bar early to watch the Belmont Stakes race and enjoyed a martini with a lively crowd. Dinner was terrific as always. We brought our own bottle of wine and the manager was so nice, asking us about the wine and reminding us that they never have a corkage fee. Food was great as always. Service is the perfect pace. Only complaint was that we were seated in what I would call the overflow room which doesn't have the same ambiance as the rest of the restaurant but I only made the reservation earlier that day so I really can't complain too much! We love Ruth's Chris and have been to many locations around the US. Always the same great experience."

  • "A restaurant we frequent often - by far - one of the friendliest restaurants with great bar food, and atmosphere. A time of friendly conversaion, great service, real value, and a night to remember."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Again, RC was above standards, food was fabulous..lyonaisse potato's scrumptions, steak on a 500* plate was delish, and the wine notable! Our server, Benjamin exceeded all expectations for insane service....he was there when we needed him and magically disappeared when we wanted our time. Can't say enough, but it was really great!! Now for more specific's...they have changed the BBQ Shrimp dish just a bit, while I was nervous it looked too clean/pretty...they kept all the flavor of the messier version. My filet with the colossal lump crab was just melt in your mouth good....the crab was an added delight."

  • "Very disappointing meal. Terrible service on this night"

  • "We have loved Ruth's Chris in SouthPark ever since we first went there after moving to Charlotte four years ago. We were delighted to hear they would welcome our two "highly sophisticated" senior doggies on their lovely patio and greeted us from the first visit like "old friends". The staff is the epitome of professionalism while being genuinely warm and friendly, even remembering the minutest details from prior visits. We moved from Uptown to SouthPark one year ago, and now have moved once again within SouthPark, even closer to Ruth's Chris; all the better for us! As an FYI to all you Ruth's Chris fans out there, both Charlotte branches are celebrating their 49th Anniversary beginning May 29th with a special gift card offer. Yay!!"

  • "two of the four steaks that were ordered weren't done as requested. One was totally overcooked, the other undercooked. For the price, expect a LOT MORE"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Service: Impeccable Ambiance: Okay. The space is more compressed than I had envisioned it being. Food: I do agree with previous reviews that the stuffed chicken breast is awesome. Be aware that the plates come out "grease splattering" hot...meaning it is fresh from the oven and still cooking. Only complaint: The au gratin potatoes were not cooked enough. Suggestion: Save up your pennies because this place is not cheap! I'd recommend going during "Restaurant Week." "

  • "We eat at Ruth's Chris several times a year. It is our favorite steak restaurant. We've tried others but always come back. The food is great the service is too. This visit lived up to our expectations. "
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "I had an 8 ounce steak that was good but not great. For $36 for the steak only I thought it would be better. If I return I will probably try a NY Strip Steak even though it was $44 or so. Eight dollars for a regular baked potato seemed a bit much. The staff was great. The service was friendly and responsive. They found out that my wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and brought out a free dessert."

  • "Service was excellent. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "I could not believe that the Ahi Tuna (crab) stack had been removed from the menu. But since this was a special occasion (anniversary) the chef combined three appetizers and made one special. As usual, dinner was extraordinary."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "My husband and I took two of our friends to dinner and we all enjoyed the great service and food. Our waiter was very helpful and attentive. The only down side was we were seated between two tables with small children. One table the baby cried and squealed often...very distracting. Not sure what happened to baby sitters!"

  • "We have been going to Ruth's Chris Southpark for many years and it never disappoints. David always takes care of us and always goes above and beyond! He is great! Some of our favorites are the crabtini, the chopped salad and of course the steaks! I always order the petite filet and it was perfect. I also love the grilled tomatoes as a side. We did not have dessert this time around, but the cheesecake is TO DIE FOR there! :) "
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "The service was excellent and the food was really good. I was expecting more options from the brunch section, but the ones we chose were good. And, of course, the ones of us that had steak were very happy. "

  • "I took a dear friend there for dinner, as an early birthday gift. She loved it as much as I did. We had a great time. I always ask for Michael, from Chicago. (I'm embarrassed to say I can't remember his last name, as many times as he has been our server.) The timing, the recommendation, the surprises, the professionalism and the sense of humor, make this one of my top choices for a special evening. I always know it's going to be good- so why chance a special occasion anywhere else?"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "excellent steaks, sides, coffee, svc. Warm apple with ice cream delish, and we had to take some home Emily was great"
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "Was not up to par. I usually order the crab cakes appetizer - but this time it was noting but bread (really). Very disappointing. However, the manager was kind enough to remove the charge from the bill, but that is not the point. You would not expect such mediocure food at such a fine restaurant. We will probably give what once was our favorite place one more try - hope they do not disappoint us again."

  • "Excellent meal and service, cannot compare the quality of steak here to anywhere else I have dined. Great recommendations from the wait staff. Nothing could have been improved upon."
