Diner Reviews
  • "Had a girl's night out with a friend during restaurant week. We both had the steak house salad - good sized portion, house made balsamic vinaigrette tasted good. I had medium rare tenderloin filet with grilled shrimp - steak was cooked perfectly and seasoned with almost a peppery crust which added nice flavor. My friend had the marbled bone-in pork chop with veal butter and said it was delicious. I liked that the dessert was a duo of cheesecake and chocolate bark - we didn't have to choose one and then share with each other. Both desserts were tasty, small portions - enough to have several bites without being too much at the end of the meal. Everything was great - food, service, atmosphere. I have been before and will continue to go."

  • "Food was excellent! Not the best service we've ever had there. About mid way through our dinner a family with 3 children were seated beside us! Besides the kids screaming and beating on the table with the knives from the children, it was a lovely dinner! NOT!"

  • "Great selections, three course dining was excellent and made choice very easy. Pork chops were to "die for" and were a tremendous value. Entree served to request and to perfection. Will visit again."

  • "This is the best meal in Charlotte. When it comes to restaurant week one should jump at the chance to reserve a night at Ruth's Chris. It is by far the quality and quantity around."

  • "These guys just deliver high quality every time. I've never been dissatisfied and have been many times. My favorites are the filet and the bone-in cowboy ribeye. Temperatures always come out perfect. Totally unpretentious atmosphere. Just good steak seasoned with salt, pepper and butter. Scalloped potatoes, mushrooms, asparagus, crab, lobster...all good. Prices are totally fair. You can easily pay more for less just down the street. Or you can travel abroad, pay a whole lot more, and get less. This place is 10 minutes away and the valet is free (plus tip), quick and easy. You'd pay at least $5 to park it around the corner and walk, so why not class it up and just pull right up front? Service is always top notch. Will go again."

  • "Ruth's Chris is my favorite place to go for lunch and I am so glad I decided to take my friend there for his birthday! Ruth's Chris manager, waitress, and entire team made my friend feel so special. They had a glass of champagne with a raspberry, a birthday card signed by the entire staff, and confetti ribbon on the table when we arrived. I had the ahi tuna salad and he had the salmon with carrots and and side of sweet potatoe casserole. The waitress also brought him dessert with a candle. No singing thankfully. The portions were perfect and the food was delicious as usual. Thanks again to the Ruth's Chris team for making my friends birthday and our lunch a phenomenal experience!"

  • "It was an odd visit to Ruth's Chris. Order a bottle of wine and 15 minutes later it shows up. Order appetizers and one shows up in 3 minutes and the other one 10 minutes later. Then the main course arrives almost immediately. Had to ask for a steak knife for my rib eye and butter for my wife's lobster tail. For the money this was just OK."

  • "My family and I have dined at many Ruth's Chris locations throughout the years including Charlotte-SouthPark, Greensboro, NC, Atlanta and others and have always enjoyed it, but our experience last Saturday night at the Charlotte-Uptown location was absolutely hands-down the best.Though the food and service are always "good," Uptown was SUPURB. From the minute we came in, we were greeted with smiles from Charlynn & Arisa , received excellent service from Erin at the bar and lastly, our server Ken was absolutely the tops! Everything from his friendly demeanor, wonderful explanation of the menu and drinks to the timing & presentation of the meal & personal but professional conversation- He was truly a delight and made us feel right at home!"

  • "While I love the Chicken Breast, I just had to order a steak this time. The friend I took with me had never been to a Ruth's Chris and furthermore has always had "chewy" steaks elsewhere. I suggested she could not go wrong ordering steak. Delicious! and we could have almost cut it with a fork. Hot all the way to the last bite due to the 500 degree plates. The Broccoli Au Gratin was amazing as well as the Lyonnaise potatoes. My friend started off with the Tomato Mozzarella salad which had the most gorgeous tasting tomatoes. The chopped salad is always flavorful. The server suggested a perfect wine and we had fantastic service. A wonderful experience and I cannot wait to return."

  • "My friend and I dined here to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and I must say, we were definitely blown away by the service! Our waiter, Steve was extremely vibrant and attentive- making sure that everything throughout the meal was perfect. The food was divine- I had the petite filet and my friend had the petite filet with shrimp. I always have trouble with getting a steak to the exact way I like it at other restaurants, and I must say, I have never had a steak so perfectly done to my tastes! The crab cake appetizer changed the way I look at how crab cakes should be done! The manager for the night, Chris, came out at the end of the meal to ask how everything went. Overall, that was definitely one of the best experiences I have ever had!"

  • "I chose Ruth's Chris uptown Charlotte for my 27th wedding anniversary, and was not disappointed that I did. It was a very busy night ("Taste of Charlotte" had been running all day), but these folks still managed to find us a quiet booth, with two glasses of champagne waiting, and an anniversary card signed by the staff. What else can I say but thank you, you made our night very special, and we'll be back. "

  • "In the reservation I noted the dinner was celebrating a coworker's 25th anniversary with the company and asked our server to congratulate her. Each member of the staff congratulated her from the lady who seated us to our server, Steve, to the manager who stopped by to check in. They also provided a toast and a card for her. The food and service are always good at Ruth's Chris, but they exceeded even my very high standards on this occasion. My boss and colleagues were also very impressed! Thanks for taking a special event to the next level. "

Our server, Russ, was THE BEST! He was the perfect combination of leave us alone and spoil us! The ultimate professional, he treated us like royalty and as if we were his only table!

  • "I went to Ruth Chris Steakhouse- Uptown to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The hostess (I think her name was Sharlyne) was very friendly and welcoming. She saw that I wasn’t feeling too well and even though we were early for our reservation, she got us seated rather quickly. The wait staff was quite hospitable and patient (we had a hard time making up our mind when ordering) The steak was the best quality my husband has had in some time The chef prepared a special desert just for him; it was quite tasty (Of course he shared) The food is a bit on the expensive side, more for a special night than an everyday-excursion type of place.
