Made a reservation for 5 for the inner dinning room. My party was late, however I was on time for the original reservation time. Once all party members were present and accounted for we informed the host station that we were ready to be seated. With the dropping temperature outside, we were told we would have to be seated outside. Given that we were not all present at the reservation time, I assumed that the restaurant had reach its capacity for inside seating. However, after waiting 10/15 to be greeted by a waitstaff person, I went inside to the host station again to let them know no one had come to bring water or to say they would be taking care of our table. Additionally, upon walking inside I see there is a table that could have accommodated my group of 5. I was not asked a whether I had a preference of inside or outside, I was not asked if I preferred to wait for an inside table nor asked if the outside table was suitable once seated. At the end of it all my guest and I ate a $400 meal in the cold. There were no heat lamps or anything to account for the outer elements. As a loyal patron of Ruth’s Chris, this was by far the worse experience I’ve had.

The food was generous and outstanding. The service was very good. My only complaint was the noise level.... we were a table of 6, seated in the middle of the restaurant and it was very hard to hear each other. Would definitely go back!

My husband and I went to Ruth's Chris for our wedding anniversary. We were seated and approached by our server and a new employee. The new server explained that he was training and quickly hurried through ran through a memorized list of items. After a few minutes we ordered and appetizer and cocktails while we reviewed the menu for our next selections. Within 5-10 mins our appetizer arrived. While eating the appetizer the server in training and main server returned to take our order. No cocktails at this point. We order soups/salads and entrées. We finished up the appetizer just as the soup and salad arrived. Barely a moment to breath. Still no cocktails. We started on soups and salad. My husband had completed his soup and I was 3/4 finished with my salad before the cocktails finally arrived. Those plates were hurried out of our way for the entrées. We were very disappointed with service, it was very rushed and drinks were delayed. We likely would have ordered a bottle of wine had we received our drinks at the beginning of the meal. This was a loss for the wait staff and for us.

We continue to go to this location because our children like the atmosphere by the water but overall our visit here was once again disappointing. Our waitress was slow, inattentive and blatantly condescending. It was a shame because the food was good but the service made for an overall miserable dining experience. The manager came to check on us shortly before desert but by then it was too late. We couldn’t wait to get out of there and after this time we will not be coming back.

This restaurant is not up to the usual standards of this chain, and not even close to being like Morton's or the Prime Rib in Baltimore. The steak, while priced nicely, was not tender and had little flavor. I won't be going there again.

Ruth’s Chris is one of my favorite restaurants and I typically enjoy the food. This time the food was rushed. We ordered the stuffed chicken breast, which is usually cooked to perfection. However, the skin was soggy and not crispy at all. The flavor was still there so we didn’t complain. The server suggested the lobster mac and cheese, which we didn’t care for either. This was probably my least favorite visit.

Everything was great as expected except the two women at the host's podium weren't friendly. Neither of the two smiled at all during our interaction. That experience is not something I'm used to at this establishment no matter the location.

We celebrated our son’s 21st birthday. Or son was acknowledged from the moment we walked in the door, throughout the meal and when leaving. Special touches here and there just for the celebratory person. Very nicely done. Service was impeccable from Ian and team. Steaks were prepared as requested and tender. Desserts were delicious and presented beautifully. Restaurant was clean and so were restrooms. Ambience was quiet and elegant. I prefer this location for esthetics. Honestly I can’t think of anything for improvement.
