    We have never been to Ruthies, so we decided to celebrate our Anniversary there this year and made reservations.We expected it to be slow and it was for a Tuesday at 5. We were seated immediately and our waiter, Andy was wonderful. The Drink was served immediately after we ordered it, and our dinner order was next. Delicious bread was served. We both got a steak and a baked potato. We’re older and just can’t eat several courses any more. Our food arrived and Andy asked us to check the doneness on our steaks, they were acceptable. I like my steak medium, ordered medium done and it was medium rare. My husband also ordered medium well, and his was actually a medium. Acceptable. Not perfect. At $57.14/lb for ribeye steak it should have been perfect! I noticed immediately that things were odd. My husbands baked potato was severed completely in half, I’ve never seen a baked potato served that way, usually it’s sliced partially thru the center, then opened like a pocket. Nope, two ROCK HARD COLD halves lying on the plate. I could tell from across the table it wasn’t cooked, it looked raw! Some one had sliced into my potato, about 1/3 the length, all the way thru the other side, again, I have never seen a baked potato served this way. Mine was so undercooked that I could barely cut in to it! The butter wouldn’t even melt! We were Sooooo disappointed. We won’t go there again, it’s sad that such a nice looking place was so bad.

    From the moment we walked in the hostess was very nice and our server Andy was just terrific👍. The ambience Is quiet and subdued, just how we like it. I can’t say enough about the lobster bisque and the baked French onion just phenomenal. My wife had the fillet, and I had the ribeye which both were cooked to perfection.(delicious)Ruthie’s Is on my list as one of my favorites, and it should be on yours as well. Kudos to the staff, 5 stars.

    Thank you very much, Steve! We certainly want everyone to enjoy their Ruthie's experience, from their first steps into the restaurant all through the dining time and the final farewell. Your compliments will be passed along to the staff so that they can celebrate a job well done.

    Whenever I visit family I always enjoy dining at the best steakhouse in the area. I prefer upscale dining when going out for a steak and Ruthie's has always delivered a great experience. The attention by our wait person Ginger was superb and we'll be booking her table again! For the food, my mother and I had the filet and ribeye, which were prepared to perfection and the shareable sides were more of the same, but too much! We are already talking about our next visit.
    Ruthie's Steak & Seafood at Riverside Casino & Golf ResortResponded 6 days ago
    You're awesome, Barry! It is wonderful hearing that you enjoy yourself with each Ruthie's visit. Your continued support is appreciated and we look forward to seeing you next time around.

    Arrived early we were seated right away. A little table just outside of the kitchen between two sets of French doors to a private room. My wife was continually hit in the back by the doors as staff and diners were continually going in and out. Very rushed not a relaxing atmosphere. I have been to them all Capital Grill, Ruth Chris, Flemmings, Mortons, Dinka's this wasn't even close. Ordered a Filet with Oscar add-on, brought steak no $18 Oscar waiter says he'll check. About a 1/3 through my steak waiter comes by I tell him forget the Oscar he says oh no its almost done. So half way through my steak which I'm not enjoying because it's getting cold waiting for them to fix the mistake, he brings a cup with crab in it here you go and I have to dump it on myself. Didn't even offer a free coffee for the wait. I went for early Valentines Day and wife's Birthday. Never again we were in and out in an hour (they should put in a drive through). I had better more relaxing meals at everyday chain steak houses for a 1/3 the price. Defiantly a Huge disappointment wish I would have went to 801 Chop House as originally planned!

    The food was surprisingly average. Presentation was a 90’s throwback. The staff doesn’t understand presenting and pouring wine. There was also no follow up to ensure wine glasses were appropriately filled. The decor was woefully outdated. Not really worth the price of admission.

    Ah, Ruthie's in Riverside, where the service shines as bright as the smiles on Paige and Faith! They made my wife's eight first birthday quite the experience. It's always a treat when you walk into a place expecting good service and they go above and beyond. Those unexpected little touches can really make a meal memorable. I should say the food was also excellent. We have dined at Ruthie's several time and have not been disappointed. I just wish our luck would have been better at the Casino!

The food was even better than I remembered, too. And when she brought out my dessert, the plate was decorated with happy birthday. Good atmosphere back semi-secluded in the back room.

    Ordered 2 lobster dishes and disappointed with both dishes. Wanted a broiled lobster with butter. Received lobster with breadcrumbs with first dish. It was over baked and tasted bitter. It was set on top of mashed potatoes!. The butter was not pure butter and a brownish substitute. The stuffed lobster dish was good but overpowered by the stuffing and cheese.

    My husband and I dined with our 25 year-old son. We were seated promptly and our server, Kaytlyn, was attentive and friendly. She was knowledgeable about items on both the food and drink menus. Our meals, (prime rib, New York Strip and the Cornish Hen December special), were very appealing in appearance as well as flavor, as expected from prior visits.

    Ordered bisque. Came out cold and in an oversized bowl from the 1990s “fine dining” era. Not a big deal but the waiter, who was training someone, did not come back for 15 mins after dropping off food. By then, the other food was eaten so was uninterested in a replacement. The bread they serve may as well not be offered. They use par-cooked frozen French baguettes that a lot of cheap restaurants use. Also came out cold. At this point we were uninterested in risking a $200 plus order so we decided to leave and hit our go-to Joseph’s table. Waiter lacked training to realize we were unhappy. Was just our table but we saw the other waiters 7:1 taking care of their tables. No offer to have a manager apologize, etc. just “we’re not charging for the soup.”

    This restaurant is a MUST! The bread and whipped apple butter are outstanding!! The grilled pork tenderloin was so juicy! My husband's sirloin was cooked to perfection! Portions were HUGE! We had 4 to go containers for 2 people! We can't wait to return! We highly recommend!

    Went for Thanksgiving this year and ordered a Filet. Worst cut of steak I have ever tasted! My husband ordered the signature ribeye steak, and it ruined his appetite for weeks! The taste of the steaks were awful. The lobster mac & cheese was horrendous! I had to send that back because I was not paying $42 for something that I can’t even swallow. The creamed corn was also horrible. I paid for that only because it was $8. I will never eat here again. Iowa period has the worst food in the country.

    We noted several additions to the menu. Food items were well prepared. Service was adequate. Cocktails could be improved.

    My steak was overcooked which they recognized - they made me a new one without me even asking. Great service!
    Ruthie's Steak & Seafood at Riverside Casino & Golf ResortResponded on November 24, 2023

    Filet was bite size, crazy they charge that much for such a tiny steak. Chicken skin was soooo chewy not crispy at all. So disappointed I picked this place to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Won’t be going back anytime soon. Place has really been going downhill. I overheard the guys sitting next to us that their 45 day dry aged steaks were terrible but they were going to eat them anyway because they were starving.

    Absolutely awful experience!!!!! Our reservation was for 8pm - we had 2 small children with us. We weren’t seated until 8:15 - I can live with that. While waiting for our food we had to go up to the bar to get our own drinks - our waitress never came back and checked on us. The food finally came out at 9:45 my medium well steak burned on one side and medium on the other - odd - then my husbands 14 oz ribeye came out and was paper thin and looked like a 6oz steak sandwich. The whole experience was awful however when we went to say something it was worse. My husband explained the whole situation to that evening’s supervisor and was told “well she had 4 tables tonight so she was overwhelmed”. We didn’t eat any of our food and asked for the check - they brought a bill for the full amount, didn’t offer to make it right at all. When my husband said something again to the manager she took “1/2 off” wow thank you so much! The whole thing was a nightmare. STAY AWAY!!!!!!

    Probably the worst dish I’ve ever eaten. I ordered the sea bass, it was not seasoned one bit! I’m not sure how they cooked it but it was greased soaked. Honestly not edible and I’m not a picky eater…. Hopefully it was just an off night for the cook, but i won’t be back for that price

    Everything was absolutely awesome. Best meal I have had all year. Bartender and waitress were super attentive, friendly, acted as if they enjoyed their job. My meal and my husbands meal was perfect. We ordered scallops, steaks, truffle fries. Everything was cooked perfect. Would highly recommend.
