Diner Reviews
  • "We were celebrating our Anniversary of 37 years with friends and the evening was super. The Valet was good, the Receptionist was expecting us, the Bartender was good and the Waiter was Very Good. A wonderful evening with good friends and delicious food. The Waiter carefully explained all of the entrees and the various pairings. Would definitely return again. Thanks Ruth's Chris."

  • "Overall, Ruth's Chris Steak House was very good. The prices are high, but the food quality is excellent. The menu is mainly a la carte which drives the prices up a bit. The steak was top notch, the service was prompt, friendly, and helpful. My wife didn't care for the seasoning on the shrimp (she doesn't like blackened seasoning) and the manager was promptly at the table ensuring we were satisfied. Very attentive. The price was the only deterrent to my eating there more often. Two of us having entrees, soup, sharing sides, one cocktail (not for each, just one) and one dessert was just slightly less than $200. But for once in a while it was excellent."

  • "Relaxing, quiet, great meal, great service. My wife and I dine here several times a year. We are never disappointed. While we review the menu and the specials we always select the filet. It's a good cut of meat perfectly sized. The garlic green beans were excellent; fresh with just a hint of garlic and butter. My wife prefers creme brûlée and I the bread pudding for dessert. The brûlée is sized right for one. The bread budding could feed two."

  • "Hands down the best steak I've ever had. I had the ribeye medium rare. That is my favorite cut and doneness but I hardly ever order it because most restaurants fail to cook them properly. I was a little nervous but so glad I did because every bite was amazing."

  • "The food at Ruth Chris is the best you can experience. This meal was fantastic. The service is perfect. And the location is perfect for Wilmington, NC."

  • "Fantastic steaks! Service and food quality were top notch. Dinning room was busy there was plenty of distractions but a less busy night would be good."

  • "Food is extremely expensive, but also delicious. Wait staff is pretty great. Hostesses however need energy, more pleasant dispositions, and better manners. Noise level was a concern."

  • "I booked a reservation through OT for my boyfriend's "half" birthday because he will be deployed for his actual birthday. When making the reservation, I explained the occasion in the "special requests" box and asked for a quiet table. Upon arrival, our table was right by a window overlooking the water and the table setting was beautiful - complete with unexpected scattered rose petals. The ambience was perfect, exactly what I wanted and more! At Ruth's Chris you never have to worry about the quality of the food because it is ALWAYS delicious. Similarly, the service is superb. Our server Gray was extremely knowledgeable, polite and friendly. He even knew the reason we were there! He really topped off an amazing dining experience!"

  • "I wish i could give the overall rating 10 stars! My dining experience was the best experience I've had ever. The food was incredible, the ambience was really nice, but most of all the service was beyond compare!! Brooke was so fast, very friendly, welcoming, the list just goes on and on. My husband and I went out to eat for his birthday, which also happens to be valentines day, and we didn't have a sitter for our 5 month old daughter and she was very accommodating. The wine list was excellent, I'm not a fan of white wine but the wine she suggested was so good!! Our food was hot the entire meal. I definitely recommend this restaurant!"

  • "What wonderful meal. Enjoyed our 21st anniversary there. Dined on petit filets that cut like butter, spinach au gratin which I am still trying to replicate at home without much success, and sautéed mushrooms. Overindulged with a bananas foster which was prepared table side and was absolutely delicious. It's a steep bill but definitely a wonderful treat."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Too pricey IMO and they tried to pass mayo as hollandaise sauce! The meat is good, but for that price I'd rather have grass fed not corn fed beef."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My wife and I had been to Ruth's Chris Steak Houses elsewhere and were hoping this one would be as excellent as the others were. It was. The good was outstanding. Ask for Gray for impeccable service. We highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "The meal and the service were wonderful, if expensive. The atmosphere was ok, but I guess the Ruth's Chris location in Wilmington is expanding, because instead of eating at the regular restaurant, we were exiled to an 'overflow' dining room that was obviously a repurposed hotel ball/meeting room. It was OK, but not quite up to the "Ruth's Chris" experience. My recommendation is: if you go to eat there, ask to be seated upstairs."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My wife and I went for Valentines day. The service and food were great. The only drawback was the price. I felt that 65 dollars for a ribeye was a bit high, however, that damn ribeye was wonderful."

  • "I had a great time. The food and service was great."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Although the restaurant was packed due to Valentine's Day, the wait staff did an excellent job of making sure all the tables were well taken care of and given the individual attention Ruth Chris is known for."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Went to Ruth's Chris for our valentine dinner with high expectations and were sorely disappointed. My filet was overlooked and my husband's ribeye was under cooked..they actually reversed our instructions..filet should have been extra rare and the ribeye should have been medium rare...they ignored my complaint ..whisked off my husband's steak back to the kitchen where they proceeded to burn it...so tough afterwards it was inedible...all this for nearly $200.00?! We will not be making a return visit."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Ruth's Chris restaurants in other cities don't always live up to Ruth's standards. This one does. We enjoyed the dinner and will go again."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "We enjoyed the porterhouse for 2 and barely made a dent in the 40oz masterpiece. Very good."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "I took my boyfriend here for his birthday last week and we had a great time. The waitstaff was so helpful and provided outstanding service. I am a vegetarian and I enjoyed my meal immensely. My boyfriend got a steak and he enjoyed his as well (of course). Thanks for making a vegetarian feel at home in a steak house, we will definitely be back!"

  • "I enjoyed my dinner and the roses that I asked for were perfect."

  • "We came here for my dads 60th bday. He's a steak man so this was the perfect place for him. We had an awesome server named Porsche. She was very energetic and she even sent us a thank you card. Everything we ordered was delicious except the asparagus, but we didn't mind because everything else was so good. We will definitely be back."

  • "my date was blown away by the Maryland style crab cakes. She bragged on how the crab cakes she eat at this certain restaurant was. I explained to her that Ruth's crab cake's are phenomenal and that when you bite in to the jumbo crab meat you truly have to ask yourself am I in Maryland because it tastes just like as if your in Maryland!!!!!! Two thumbs up to the chef who made the crab cakes if I have more hands I get more thumbs up :-))"

  • "We wanted to go to Ruth's Chris when it opened in Wilmington but never made the time. For our 8th wedding anniversary we finally made reservations. We were delighted with the quality of the food, the professional and knowledgeable server, and the atmosphere. In a world of ordinary days, dress up and enjoy an extraordinary romantic experience. This is a special event meal for us and we will go once or twice a year here. Money well spent."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The entire night could not have been any more perfect. The restaurant was extremely clean, the staff was very professional, and the food was superb. I had asked for a single red rose to be placed on the table and the restaurant had one on the table when we arrived. They are what I like to call the best of the best! Thanks for an enjoyable and romantic night for my wife and myself."

  • "My wife and I went to this restaurant to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary. We have been here before which is why we went back. The steak was outstanding, the service excellent, and the overall experience was perfect. My suggestion is that if you want to treat yourself to a truly outstanding dining experience go to Ruth's Chris in Wilmington, NC."

Then as we waiting a car drove up and the two that were reading the paper waited till the people got out of the car before they approached them.... Will always come here for special occasions....by the way we had no rose pedals on the table...the server said no one went out and got any?"
