Dress code out the window! Fat women running around in short shorts. Men in work boots, blue jeans and T-shirts.

Way overpriced for the value. Food presentation was underwhelming. Basically a piece of black meat on a plate. My broccoli was undercooked. Salad and sweet potato casserole were ok. The waiter did a good job.

I’ve had better meals at any number of steak restaurants for 25% of the price.

It’s the best ribeye around and it should be for $57. My wife and I split a steak and two sides and we walk out stuffed. We’ve celebrated our children’s 18th birthday here.

Ruth's Chris has been my favorite restaurant for many years. This was my first time visiting the Birmingham location. I must say that I was a little disappointed that it did not hold up to the fine dining experience I am accustom to at Ruth's Chris. Prior to this visit, I last visited the Baton Rouge location which was superb. Birmingham should focus more on training their staff to enhance the fine dining experience and maybe moving to a new location. As a whole, it would be great if they offered a grass fed steak or wagyu beef.

Wife and I ordered the same steak, both cooked med. Her’s was fine. Mine was 50-75% fat and griddle. Definitely not a $57 steak. Never had this problem with RC.

You pay for the venue. The meal was about what you get at Outback or Logan’s. We both had the filet (8 & 11), and it was good, but not worth double the cost of any other place. Honestly, this is why I’ve only been here twice my whole life. May go back, may not.

Service was excellent. Most of the food was excellent except my $50+ filet. It was burned. I should have sent it back. Asked for medium to medium well because the last time I asked for medium it was red all Th e way through. It was more like well. Spicy shrimp was really good. Salads were excellent. Lobster Mac & cheese was really good. Everything was good except the steak.

At first not what I was expecting being in a hotel lobby, but completely worth it. Food came out very fast, and was perfectly cooked. Definitely worth the price you pay. Service was amazing and we never went without something to drink or just asking if we needed anything else. Overall 5 stars. Highly recommend, will definitely be back.

Best time ever. We are amid covid and the Ruth’s Chris team all wore masks which us very comfortable. The tables were several feet apart. We read the menu by scanning a QR code with our smart phone. The prices were not inflated and the food was excellent. We shared a 12oz filet served on hot plates and the Brussel sprouts with bacon mmm! We shared the creme brûlée and our server added extra berries. The filet was so tender you could cut it with a fork.

Mary Katherine did an excellent job as our server. The management faced the unfortunate interaction with a small minded drunk. They handled it well. This is an unfortunate result of the location of your restaurant. All good on the food, service, and dining experience.

My wife however, he had WAAAAY too many tables to cover. Plus the food (though excellent in taste) took forever to get to our table, & they were not that busy.

If it had not been for COVID, I would have given them 2 stars. I am giving them the benefit of the doubt by giving them 4 stars.

We told them it was our wedding anniversary dinner, & no mention was made about that from the host stand nor the waiter. That has NEVER happened in the past, & we have dined there for numerous special occasions.
