We ate at the bar by choice and the crew was awesome. Kept our drinks full, always had a smile, and kept us informed on our foods. Everything was clean, inviting and we’d love to come back when we’re in town.

Food was excellent, service spectacular, but the "background" music level was so loud that any sort of normal conversation was impossible. Seemed to me to be an inconsiderate choice by management to speed along the pace of dining.

Food was very good, but I think it is overpriced for what you get. I understand that prices have been going up, but paying 40 dollars plus for sea bass is a bit too much.

Thank you for your candor, Robert. I'm disappointed that your experience fell below your expectations. While you are right - there are certainly less expensive options in town, I can assure you our quality is second to none, and I'm disappointed this wasn't your impression.

When I made my reservation I advised it was for our 12 yr anniversary and requested a table along the windows away from the booths but we were still seated near the booths. When our calamari came out it was cold. We order cheesecake and apple tart for dessert and asked for the cheesecake to go but apple tart for there but it was backwards when it came to the table. The server we had was a little slow as I'm not sure if she could handle the tables she had. My wife finally received a refill on her water finally after she had to drink my water. My wife has been to the Ruth's Chris on Congaree Road and said when the food is brought out the bring knives out and let you choose a knife to use for your steak. This is our 3rd visit to Ruth's Chris this year and we really enjoy coming and getting the great food. This will not keep us from coming back just wanted to make aware.

3 of us got filets and they all had fat on them. I have never been served a filet that was fatty. The service was also very slow all around. Slow to get us sat, greet us at the table, salads to the table, drink refills and entree delivery. We have a Ruth’s Chris at home and this one can not compare to prior experiences at the one back home.
