Amazing steaks, great service, all-around wonderful restaurant! The bone-in filet is amazing. And the banana cream pie for dessert is soooo good (and beautiful!)!

I took my wife out for her birthday and she loved it!! I used OpenTable to make the reservation and that process was completely smooth when we arrived. The food was unbelievably good and enough that we had to take some home. Very nice and efficient staff who checked on us frequently. We mentioned on OpenTable that it was her birthday and they had a nice dessert treat for her at the end of the meal. See picture!

My wife asked for a glass of sweet red wine and never got it. Waiter came over and took both of our wine glasses and gave them to another table.
Steak was good but side portions are small for the prices. Definitely NOT a place I’d go back to

Enjoyed our dinner. We decided to take the carrot cake home for dessert but we were disappointed to find out it was very dry. We would have sent it back if we would have been at the restaurant. We’ve had it before and it was delicious. I think we may have had the last piece or it had been sitting out.

Have always contended that Ruth's Chris is the best steak in town and there are A LOT of steakhouses in Indy. 10 oz. Ribeye was to die for and my wife ordered the Snapper special that night and it was fabulous. Of course hunking piece of scratch made carrot cake for dessert topped of a great meal. Michael our server in the bar section was spot on with his knowledge and graciousness.

Celebrated GF's 50th birthday so wanted a special dinner. Was not disappointed by the good food and service we received during our dinner. Everything was top notch. I highly recommend the flaming Oysters Rockefeller appetizer. Our steaks were sizzling and so tender. The dinner overall was wonderful it was a memorable evening.

Have eaten at a lot of Ruth Chris' -- this one by far consistently has the best food preparation of any - the service is always well above average. Well worth it - far better than the famous place down the street for steak.

Celebrated our 46th anniversary. My wife's favorite Restaurant is Ruth's Chris. We were promptly seated and drink orders were taken. Our waitress Sarah I believe. gave us plenty of time to relax and enjoy. We split a very good Shrimp Cocktail before dinner. My wife ordered the steak and shrimp and as always, came out to her liking on a sizzling plate, cooked to perfection. I had the Filet which is always a favorite and made sure I got the Creamed Spinach! We remain huge fans of Ruth's Chris and will continue celebrating special occasions or just an evening out at our favorite Steak House! The Room Mgr. was very nice and brought us a $25 gift card to use on our next visit.

might be the best restaurant steak I've ever had. parking was horrible because there was a colts game and other events. was a little humiliating to valet park my 2003 ford sedan with 285,000 miles but grateful valet parking was offered.

Not our best experience here. Would have had a better time squeezed in at the bar than at our afterthought of a table they placed directly in front of an exit and the door to the kitchen. Server also treated us as an afterthought. Food is always great, but $30 for a veggie plate seems excessive. And I've had better jalepeno margaritas most places. Thankful we had gift cards and this visit wasn't on us!

Me and my family frequent Ruth Chris several times per year, we just prefer it and it used to be that the service was impeccable.

In recent visits the hostess at Indy North and the Downtown locations are not genuine and they seem to prejudge based on looks.

Ruth Chris is not just for special occasions for us so we may not be dressed in dresses or suits, my husband (Business Owner) and myself (VP of a prominent company in Indy) like to wear jeans etc...

We did not appreciate being sat in the very back of the main dining room as there were many other options that we walked past.

We were sat by a group of young women seemingly out for a girls night out. Great for them but loud for us.

I hope this is not a trend...

We were in Indianapolis for the LPGA Golf Tournament and had a late dinner at Ruth’s Chris downtown location. We were seated in the very comfortable bar area. We had both a salmon and steak entree and both were perfectly prepared and delicious. The service was excellent. Great waiter and bus person. A manager checked to see if our dinner was good, also. A piano player I the bar was an added plus. Thanks!
