Completely enjoyable Thanksgiving experience. Dressing and Lobster Mac n Cheese could’ve been seasoned better, cooked longer. More cheesier, a little salt and pepper, half n half, flour could’ve made it delicious. My service with Teddy, as always, was spectacular!

Brought my young boys for Thanksgiving. Excellent service. Was a very kid friendly atmosphere. Waiter was excellent as well. No complaints. Food was great. My kids got the kid’s version of the Thanksgiving meal which is everything that is on the adult version except for the salad. They enjoyed it very much. I got the lamb chops, which were also cooked perfectly - I orderd them medium rare. I tasted everything on my boy’s plate. The turkey was moist and cooked perfectly. The mashed potatoes and greeen beans were as expected, no complaints. The stuffing was really good. The view at this place overlooking the operations at Reagan International Airport from high above was awesome for the boys and captured their attention with the planes coming in and out and the metro trains passing by. I probably won’t take them back regularly since they don’t have a true appreciation yet for quality meats, but will definitely go back for Thanksgiving. Thanks to everyone there for making it a good time and thank you to our server Brian for his service to our nation and how good he was with my sons.

The view was obviously spectacular. The wait staff was very good. We just did not think the food was very good for the value.

My wife and I were pleasantly greeted by the Ruth’s Chris staff, promptly seated at a table with a picturesque window skyline view. Our waiter/server, Brian, made the overall experience a perfect one. He was informative, very pleasant and courteous during all discussions. We felt welcomed. The quality of the excellent meal made our 36th wedding anniversary one of the best! Thanks Ruth’s Chris.

I enjoyed Ruth Chris. The dinner was good and the service was well. I didn't understand why they placed the guest so close together in the restaurant given that its still COVID. The noise level was VERY loud considering that its fine dinning. The waiter was AMAZING!!!

I love the Annapolis location

Really disappointed in our recent visit to Ruths Chris. The best thing about our meal was the salad and bread. My filet was completely overcook and my guests' Bone In NY Strip was undercooked. My guest continued to eat his steak, though unsatisfied. My filet was prepared again and then this time was undercooked. Additionally, the Brussel Sprouts were incredibly greasy and laden in oil. It was so unpleasant and disappointing, overall.

Not good! Children in the dining area to start with.. Screaming children to boot!
In the words of Richard G Hogan “Children should not be allowed in a fine dining establishment! Period!”
Out of Calamari! The number one appetizer on the menu and they are out! WTF?
On to the salad course.. ordered one with Thousand Islamd on the side and one with added grape tomatoes.. Guess what? They got it wrong!
On to the main course, Now you’d think they know how to cook a steak.. Ordered the 8oz filet and the Bone in filet both Medium rare. Both came out medium to well!
They tried again .. Second time, under cooked! The 8oz still had ice in the middle..
Just a terrible experience

Staff was sub-par at best. Food came out rare when asked for medium well. The waiter saw I was trying to get his attention but then went to take an order from an 8-person table. Sides were ice cold by the time they brought my steak back. No apology.

The food was remarkable! The lobster was so succulent and tender it melts in your mouth. The tenderloin was soft, flavorful, and crab cakes were delicious.
The only down side was being charged extra for the crab cakes. We got the three course deal and we thought the crab cakes were included for appetizer because the waitress said she could swap for appetizer I wanted…did not realized we would be charged separately for it. Anyway, food was delicious!
