Went for dinner asked for my steak medium well and received rare. Everyone else was almost complete with their dinner by the time I received my steak back to eat. When the plate arrived it’s so hot and sizzling that the juices splatter on your clothes from frying on the plate.

I enjoy the experience of Ruth Chris but every time I pay the bill I always am reminded of other restaurants just as good and less cost.

This was my first time dining at Ruth's Chris and I will definitely return. The porkchop was superb! The manager Jordan was awesome and aware of every part of her restaurant. Our server Rachel was incredible as well. We had another server who's name I can't recall and he was just as proficient as Rachel and Jordan.

I've given Ruth's Chris too many chances. MY seating request was ignored for the forth time and on this trip my steak was under cooked; I sent it back and it was still under-cooked. The server was amazing however, RC is supposed to be about steak. The last 4 trips (3 at the other Gville location) and this 1 trip to downtown have all been a disappointment. We're done.

We were seated at a table next to the window with a nice view of the city. The table, however was too small to accommodate everything. The waiter had to remove items as others arrived.
The filets were done just right, tender and tasty. Mushrooms were made to order without onions, huge baked potato. The Brussels sprouts should have been cooked longer, as they were nearly raw, but had a good flavor.
Overall, a pleasant dining experience. We paid with a gift card and apparently the staff did not know how to process it and took a long time.
The background music was too loud and should be an easy listening type for that atmosphere.
