    Dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse is always a very good experience. It seems more like a standalone steakhouse than a chain (franchise). I've been to six different establishments across the country and the food, ambiance and service are reliably very good.

    I never write reviews but I must commend Ruth's Chris on their outstanding service & delicious food!!I celebrated my 3 year anniversary here & it was my first time there.I wish I could remember the servers name because he was great but I'm horrible with names!anyway he was very informative & gave us some history about the restaurant.he was helpful in helping us decide which dish fit wat we were looking for.We ordered the Porterhouse steak for 2,a side of creamed spinach & side of mashed potatoes.OMG the steak melts in ur mouth & is hands down the best steak I have ever had in my life!no exaggerating.the sides were excellent as well.Just a lil tip.the sides are big enough for 2 to share.This restaurant is Outstanding!wont be disappointed!!

    I have dined at dozens of high end steakhouses, but none is as consistent as Ruth's Chris for quality of food and service. This was our first visit to the VA Beach location and we were not disappointed. Fork tender filet mignons cooked perfectly, fantastic chopped salads, and delectable sides (potatoes Au gratin and fresh peas) made for a perfect meal to cap off our VA Beach vacation. Service was exceptional, and the drink special was delicious as was the wine recommended by our server. We will definitely return to this location the next time we visit.

    I was asked by the CEO to obtain a private dining area in close proximity to the Hilton Garden Inn. Ruth's Chris was the only restaurant that could accommodate this request and also offer great food and a very pleasant dining experience. Would highly recommend the "boardroom" for business lunch or dinner.

    Took my wife there for her birthday and it was excellent, as this restaurant usually is. The wait staff was very attentive and was there when we needed them. The steaks are far above the average steak house fare. We ordered the filets as we have found them to generally be better than the other cuts they offer. The sides are very good, although not particularly exceptional. The cost to dine here is several times what we ordinarily spend to have dinner, but once in a while for a special occasion it is nice to splurge.

  • Best Steak in Virginia Beach
    bayagent
    Dined on 8/22/2014
    My wife and I had dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House this past Friday evening and were extremely pleased with the ambience, the outstanding service, and the food. She had the 80z filet with scallops and shrimp special and I ordered the large filet (which was huge). They were both cooked to perfection ... mine a perfect medium rare and perfect medium for her. Her baked potato was huge and delicious. I ordered the crisp shoestring potatoes which were served inside of a cloth napkin. They were delicious, but not the crispness I expected because of the steam created by the fries inside the napkin. I Suggest no napkin. Will we return? By all means. We loved it. Virginia Beach is extremely lucky to have such an outstanding restaurant.

    Been here numerous times & have always had an extremely pleasant experience. Food was excellent as usual. Gaston is our favorite waiter but his assistant was not up to par. He removed my dessert plate that I had only half eaten and I had to stop him from walking away with it before I could tell him I wanted to take the remaining dessert home. Then I got an annoyed look. Don't need attitude with my steak. Management spoke to me about my complaint. Like I said, first ever criticism.

    The dining experience last evening at the Ruth's Chris Steak House in Virginia Beach was superb! The waiter, wait staff, managers, and all staff persons exceeded excellence in delivering a wonderful fine dining experience. George, our waiter, provided great service, and he paid attention to every detail. I have always found that dining at Ruth's Chris Steak House is always a fantastic experience where ever I travel across America. Last evening, I was celebrating getting over my breast cancer surgery, and the dining experience made me feel special again and that life is worth living. May God continue to bless Ruth's Chris Steak House!

    We gathered for a farewell dinner a the closing of our offices. The food was great, the service excellent and prompt. Our waiter had a bit of an Italian accent (which was charming) but sometimes difficult to understand. All in all - a very fine dining experience. The Chocolate Explosion dessert was well worth the wait!

    Ruth's Chris Steak House in Virginia Beach was one of if not the best dining experience I have ever had. From the service when you walk in, to the food, wine, dessert, and just overall experience, everything was perfect. I took my girlfriend there for a night out while on vacation and we couldnt have been happier. The Prime Filet was the best steak I have ever eaten. The Raspberry Sorbet was to die for. The staff, general manager, and chefs were all so polite, professional and made the experience something to remember. I highly recommend it.

    This was our first time at the Virginia Beach Ruth's Chris though we've visited others. Overall the food was very good. However, I ordered a ribeye and it was probably one of the worse steaks I've ever tasted (which was surprising considering the restaurant). It was cooked perfectly, it just tasted gamy. Very unfortunate. Lyonnaise potatoes had to be swapped for mashed potatoes. My husbands stuffed chicken was delectable. Our drinks and appetizers were pleasing. The server was knowledgeable and offered some great suggestions, such as the corn chowder that we enjoyed. Diners at a table close to ours had an infant who cried some during dinner, very distracting since we came out to dinner to get a break from our infant daughter!

    My wife and I made a reservation for a Friday night at 730 PM. On arriving, we were immediately seated at our table, which was immaculate. Our server was knowledgable, cordial, and unintrusive. His assistant kept our table immaculate, but not in a fashion that felt "hurried". Our table was never cluttered, and plates were cleared before new courses were brought, with bread crumbs removed from the table before each new course. The food was exquisite, and well presented. The cocktails and wine we ordered were well presented, and appropriately priced. The noise level was such that it didn't interfere with normal conversation at our table, however the table wasn't anything special. It felt like any other table in a restaurant. Fine Dining.

    I like Ruth's Chris for one thing, the steaks. I had an 11oz filet cooked medium well and it was perfect. I ate the whole thing. No extra fat or gristle. The service was excellent. I don't really care for the way sides are offered though. Also, the noise level was a bit too loud for a private conversation.
