My wife and I have been to Ruthies 6 times. We both had the same steak type Saturday 4/24 (Maryland Ribeye) , it was so fatty, grisly, and tough. For $49 each we both left half of it on the plate. I have had steaks here before and was always good. Very very disappointed for the cost we pd. Not once did the waitress ask us how our food was. She seemed to just be to busy helping others.

Will be awhile before we come back and spend $125.00 I can go to the Butcher Block in Cedar Rapids, and have the best steak you can have, for a lot less money.

We had a large party so we were put at two tables (Gotta love Covid) . We were sat on time very nice tables (Not a bad seat in the house) Waiter/Waitress very attentive. Drinks a little slow didn't realize there was a time limit on drinks. But as always the food did not disappoint. Over all a very wonderful experience.

Worst steakhouse I've ever visited, truly nothing special about this place. My boyfriend said his prime rib was Ponderosa quality, my drink was awful. This place does not accommodate to vegetarians. I am from Chicago where we have some of the best steakhouses in the country, which accommodate vegetarians, and always make the freshest high quality salads around. This was just a overpriced below regular quality restaurant.
