Steakhouse

Flame creates the sizzle at our high-end American steakhouse. The finest cuts of beef and seafood are prepared to impress and delight in an atmosphere of rich wood, comfortable colors, fresh flower centerpieces and warm lighting. Traditional steaks or chops of beef, lamb or pork are prepared as cuts or on the bone. Try our impressive Ruthie's signature line of steaks such as the filet marmalade, Maryland ribeye or, our latest, the French onion filet. Seafood is at its best in the hands of Chef Tom Torres. His attention to detail and delicate touch complete the best sautéed or grilled fish and seafood dishes imaginable. Chilean sea bass, wild-caught salmon, Australian lobster tail, and Argentinian red shrimp help to complete a menu dedicated to extraordinary dining.

To complement your fine dining experience, enjoy libations you’d expect from a metropolitan hot-spot. Our wine selection is vast and designed to be the best in Eastern Iowa.

Overall this one is the best, as it is the most consistent. My husband had an appetizer of crab cake, which while not authentic, was delicious with the poached egg on top. I had the shrimp/lump meat crab cocktail, which is served on marscapone cheese and cocktail sauce. It was amazing, as always. My only complaint was the very small basket of bread, but I’m sure we could have had another. My husband had mushrooms and Mac and cheese for dinner, both of which he said was amazing. I had the Maryland Ribeye, which was cooked to perfection. I subbed the broccolini with asparagus, but I wouldn’t recommend it, because it has a ginger taste that didn’t go with the steak. That was my fault, so no blame on anyone. Our server Cara was attentive and the atmosphere is shockingly quiet, given the casino is about 50 feet away. While it doesn’t have the views of Rhythm City (which is impressive), nor is it the price of Grand Falls (about $5-10 cheaper per entree), this steakhouse is the best because the food is always excellent, and the smaller format (compared to RC) helps servers stay on top of everything. If you haven’t tried Ruthies at Riverside, you absolutely must.

With such tasty bread and butters, it is easy for a couple to go through a basket.

My wife and I had dinner and it was mediocre. Not worth the fine dining prices. The Filet Marinade was poor. My wife's Salmon was average. I would not recommend.

So much easier than us trying to split it table side. The New York strip is the best steak I have ever had. We love treating ourselves to a wonderful meal at Ruthies. Great food and great server. Thank you Brady.

The specialty lemon butter was perfect pair to raisin type bread an or sourdough maybe can’t recall👏always love the specialty butter. I always say wish they sell it. Prime delmonaco ribeye was cooked perfect with a amazing marble to it. Can’t wait for the next date/special occasion. Thanks

We sat at a half round table booth which was ok but being a bigger person little uncomfortable. The amazing steak and drinks and bread board were top notch. The Mac and cheese was odd compared to the last time there but was served differently and stayed warm most of the meal service. The Mac and cheese was dry and had to scoop the sauce from the bottom cover noodles. In past it was creamy throughout and had a caramelized or burnt type tomato on it which didn’t this time. We will continue to come we love this place. Price is great as we split almost all the time and the food never disappoints. It did seem to be a lot more cooler in there as my wife hair was moving some of the time an she and I both mentioned it was drafty in and the server even commented. 9-9.5 out of 10 just minor maybe silly things. Our server was great very attentive.

It was correctly cooked when returned but sides and all food otherwise for every at our table was cold. My friends got Valentines special and we had $134 bill. They had over $150. This was not acceptable for the price. We did tip $80 at our table to the severs as it is not their fault.

I made reservations on OpenTable a few hours before and arrived a bit early and inquired about my expected reservation. They were definitely expecting us and welcomed us into the restaurant We hadn’t been there for a few years. We found the ambience elegant and quiet. There was an abundance of staff for the number of guests present and we were seated immediately. We had exemplary service for the entire evening. Drinks and appetizers were served promptly as was the meal. Refills were well timed. Our wait staff was quite pleasant. We were both quite pleased with portion sizes. We chose the crabcake for an appetizer along with a salad for my wife and the crab bisque soup for myself. All were generous servings and tasted delicious. For dinner my wife chose the Chilean Sea bass and I chose the prime sirloin. My wife was quite impressed with the Chilean sea bass. At times some Seabass entrées at other restaurants can be tasty but on the bland side. That was not the case for this meal at Ruthie‘s. She found the taste to be quite her liking and it did not rely upon the usual salsa or pico de gallo that is often served to add to the flavor. My prime sirloin was cooked perfectly and was a generous size. I chose crispy onions as an accompaniment and the flavor was outstanding. Neither one of us had room for desserts but they had several offerings that looked delicious. The price for the meal was in the 150 range, pretty much what I expected for a restaurant of this high caliber. I was very pleased with my meal and would make the special trip to Ruthie’s again in the near future. I highly recommend the restaurant.
