All of my family enjoyed the food. When our main dish was brought out, we had to wait several minutes for the side dishes to arrive. I think all of it should have come at the same time. I saw 1 other table have the same issue. Prime rib was wonderful and dessert was wry good.

Great for date night. We had to call to change the time of our reservation 15 minutes before we were supposed to arrive due to an unforeseen conflict and even though they were very busy, they accommodated with the utmost hospitality.

This was my S/O and my first time at Ruthies. The food was amazing! It is priced on the high side. My biggest complaint is that our waiter did not offer me the Gluten Free table side bread that we learned was available when paying our bill. I am Celiac and this would have topped my night off! Also, we were seated by a table of skeptical individuals who berated the waiter and made us feel uncomfortable. With that being said kudos to the staff for handling it with complete class!

We knew in advance that the food would be expensive. Virtually everything is a la carte. Dinner was $320 for 5 of us, no wine, beer, or alchohol. With the "20% suggested tip" it was $380.

The appetizers (Iowa charcuterie and calamari) weren't anything special either. The charcuterie selection looked like it came from the deli section at Hy-Vee. The calamari was tough and the breading wasn't crisp. Might have been because it was almost cold as well.

My prime rib was barely warm and on the raw side of rare, rather than medium rare. It was very bland, with little seasoning. The butter on the mushrooms on top of the prime rib was already congealing when it was brought out. The mashed potatoes were more like chunky potatoes, and they were not hot. My wife ordered halibut. It was dry and cold, as was the risotto.

Dessert wasn't any better. They all looked like they had been pre-made. The crust of my chocolate/coffee torte was so dry I need a knife to cut it. Again - very mediocre appearance and taste.

Service was very mediocre. Waitress barely spent any time at the table, whether getting drinks ordered, ordering food, or bringing it out.

My overall impression was that this was just another casino restaurant, where the entire experience is mediocre and the prices are overly expensive. It definitely did not meet my expectation of "fine dining".

We will not go there again and I would not recommend it to anyone.

For a Thursday evening the restaurant was very busy! Our waitress was Cat and she was excellent! Our food, steak and shrimp along with asparagus and Yukon potatoes, was delicious. There were a number of parties with 5+ diners, which made for a slightly over 2 hour dinner for us. Maybe they need another waitress or a busboy or chef! We still enjoyed the excellent dinner!
