It was just ok. The dessert was cheesecake dessert we ordered was frozen. The server took a long time to clear our table once the entree was done. The server also failed to clean any crumbs from the linens between courses. At this price point I expect much better service and food quality.

This was, once again, an amazing experience! Our waitress, Rachel, made the evening very special and was very attentive to even the slightest detail. Food and ambience were extraordinary ... hats off to the entire staff!!! We will definitely return.

Wife and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, Downtown Greenville SC last Tuesday. We are new to the Greenville area and really aren't familiar with the good local restaurants. When I suggested Ruth's, she was skeptical, knowing that it was a 'chain' style restaurant. We were familiar with the beautiful downtown Greenville location so we took a chance. I did mention our anniversary during my online reservation and the restaurant did make a nice table decoration acknowledging our anniversary. We both absorbed the menu both in variety and pricing, looked at each other and decided its our anniversary, we're going to enjoy the evening and not worry about the high menu pricing. The wines we chose were wonderful, but that's where the excitement ended. The filet I chose had little to no flavor. The Lobster tail I ordered was a overcooked piece of rubber that I could barely cut through with a steak knife. My wife had fillet Oscar, and the sauce was overpowered with pepper and lemon with the crab having absolutely no flavor. With our meal being underwhelming, the worst part was our hostess. Although friendly, she was a college student that was way too chatty. We could hear here describe details of her life 2 tables away for at least 5-7 minutes that was totally distracting. The other distracting part of the night was the 'Alternative' music being played through the restaurant sound system. We are not prudes and like the music, but did not just feel appropriate when your dining, trying to enjoy a $300 meal!

Had a reservation for Valentines Day. We have been to Ruth Chris before and honestly not sure if we will ever go back. The brand has lost its luster. Service was on par with any restaurant I have ever been to. Our order of lobster mac & cheese came out warm, not hot at all so it was either sitting for awhile or not temperature checked, other things like forgetting to replace silverware after taking it and us having to ask for forks to eat with and them not bringing out a full meal,(my wifes lobster tail with her filet was missing and had to be cooked which took about 10 minutes). When combined with the cost of the meal $200+ for two with one drink each not including the tip I could have had an exceptional dining experience elsewhere and for probably less. On a positive note the food was fantastic and even though the Mac & Cheese was warm I was impressed by how much lobster was on it, they didn't skimp. Overall a 2.5 out of 5.

Food was delicious. Sides are family style so if the table can pick a couple of things to share you will come out with a lower cost AND less food to bring home. I'm normally a ribeye woman but my husband's NY strip was DELICIOUS.
My ribeye was medium rare on one end and well done on the other end. When I showed our waitress Angie, she was shocked. I didnt realize this until 1/2 way through my steak, she mentioned still took it to the kitchen and replaced it. I totally wasn't expecting that.

NOTE: Steaks are served on a 500°F plate.

Overall it was a nice dinner out with my wife. The main dining room overlooked the river and seemed to have great ambiance, however, we were stuck in a side room with no windows and tight seating. To be honest, it was Valentine's Day so they were slammed, but the ambiance went from a 5/5 to a 2/5. Note to self, be sure to ask for a seat with a view next time.

No Bang for your Buck. Expectation of High End Restaurant with cozy atmosphere. Server was nice but the quality was not there food was swimming in butter no taste. Having a bar open to restaurant was loud when only three tables were in the dining room can’t imagine when it is full. Will not recommend.

The seafood tower is never a miss - always a win! I'm so glad that you enjoyed it so much.
