Cat, our waitress was excellent! I will request her the next time. Noise level was higher than I like.
Food was good. Not over the top, but good.

It was good as always with R’s C, although maybe not the best for this chain. The crowd at this location was a bit more blue jeans than suits but it was a mix. They were full so we were put in a small overflow room with 2 other couples. The main restaurant was lively but there was no music in the overflow room (until we got a request for it in after 30-40mins) and I sat beside their wet / dry shop vacuum which was weird. It was probably more 3 star experience because the service was also slow (20 minutes to get water after being seated) but the waiter was a good guy and the food was good, so I will give them 5 anyway. They should probably charge you 50% off in the overflow area due to the reduced experience though.

We had a 630p reservation and were seated at that time. We requested a particular server and we not notified until we arrived that he was not working. It seemed like it took several minutes for the waitstaff to adjust, so we waited. More than once the server had to apologize for someone not bringing something to the table we requested - like something we ordered. Also, the pepper shaker at our table was not working. This was our 5th time visiting this location and I can honestly say we have only had 2 great evenings of them. Almost ready to just go back to Baltimore or DC locations.

This is an expensive restaurant but, as with everything in life, you get what you pay for. The food is served as you want it to be served, i.e. rare is rare and well done is well done etc. The service is outstanding and the seating arrangements are not cramped, which in these Covid times is important, at least to me. The menu is not just about steak so I suggest that you check the web site before booking. I liked the Salmon, which is described as spicy but should really be described as having a piquant
sauce. I hope this helps. Well done Ruth's Chris Steakhouse at Odenton.

Our dining experience at Ruth Chris Odenton was great. Our server Taylor took good care of us. Appetizer stuffed mushrooms were Ok but a bit too much filler for us. Our steaks were delicious and cooked perfectly. We will be returning.

Food was well prepared and delicious as always. Steaks cooked perfectly. Loved the salads and the shoestring fries. Unfortunately, the service was subpar compared to prior visits. Our water glasses sat empty for at least 10 minutes and even then, were not refilled until we requested it. Our waiter (Donny) disappeared for a long while after we placed our dinner order and we had to ask someone else to track him down and send him to our table so we could order a second round of wine and cocktails. Even still, those drinks weren’t delivered to our table until we were nearly finished eating so we couldn’t enjoy them with our meal. (Rather than bringing the drinks directly from the bar to our table, the waiter set them down on a side table to attend to other matters for a few minutes while we continued to wait!). And then the waiter mixed up the drink orders, pouring Pinot Grigio for one member of our party who had ordered Chardonnay and vice versa for a second member of our party. Overall, just not the level of service we expect from Ruth’s Chris.

Overall, the service was good and the quality of the food was very good. However, our water glasses were never refilled throughout the dinner service and the table next to us was quite loud at the beginning of our dinner. The pricing for all menu selections, a la carte, was very expensive. Therefore, the value of the meal was not the greatest. We knew this going in but, for once a year for an anniversary celebration, we decided to "splurge"!

The service was slow and the server did not really come to table. The runner that drops off the food out the tray and walked off. Another server did come by 5 minutes later and served our food. My food was cold and I sent it back. The manager did offer a free dessert. I came out with my cousin out of town to enjoy the experience of five dining but was very disappointed. I have patronized this location before and it was awesome. Not sure I would return.

My husband and I always go to the Ruth Chris in Odenton it was my birthday celebration and naturally that’s where I wanted to dine. We dine at the Ruth’s Chris steak House in Odenton at least once a month. I always order the same thing the cowboy steak cream spinach and Caesar salad for a beverage I always get a lemon drop martini. I noticed this time the steak was not as seasoned as it usually is I had to use salt and pepper which I never use. It seemed as if something was missing on the meat it was not as succulent as in the past. The rest of my meal was very good I was just surprised that my steak was not as good as it usually is. I didn’t complain to our server and now thinking back I should have Maybe I could have gotten another steak. I still enjoyed myself though and when we come back next month I don’t know if I’ll get the cowboy steak because of this experience.

It was my 52 birthday, wife surprised me. Started with the ahi tuna and some adult beverages. For the main meal We got the tomahawk, with Cremin mushrooms and cream spinach. We had a wonderful lady taking care of of us. (Alexis B.). The manger made his rounds to all the customers checking on them. Then it was time for cheesecake and cappuccinos. This was our first time at a Ruth’s Chris steak house. You owe it to your tastebuds to go check it out. We will be back! Thank you to the entire staff!!

It was a lovely time with my husband, the food was phenomenal especially the sweet potato casserole!! The service was great and the ambiance was cool. I wish they would enforce the dress code because some people were dressed like they were at the club.

The credit card machine wasn’t working which was unfortunate since it was very crowded. The waitress didn’t take all of the necessary information down so she proceeded to call my phone a few times to get the rest of the info. That wasn’t her fault but what was her fault is that she never put my gumbo to go in my bag after I reminded her 3 times. She put the cheesecake in and said ok you have everything now - I should’ve checked but I didn’t. But at a restaurant like this you assume that the waitress will do what they say.

I was disappointed that my guest and I had to share the side dishes of potatoes and broccoli rabe. Was also disappointed that the short ribs were pretty much non existent with the meal. I had one really small piece on my plate. My first wine tasting in April was far different from this one.
