Steakhouse
Ruth's Chris Steak House in Birmingham, Alabama is situated in the lobby of the Embassy Suites hotel conveniently located just off the Red Mountain Expressway between the Homewood and Mountain Brook neighborhoods. Deep, rich reds with accents of teal and copper predominate the steakhouse dining room while the dense foliage of the open atrium hotel envelops our restaurant in an air of casual elegance.

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.

Everything wonderful as usual. You can always count on Ruth’s Chris from my first experience almost 50 years ago in the very first Chris’s on Claiborne Ave in New Orieans

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.

Out of onion rings, salmon under cooked, and way over priced. This location is “dingy “ and needs upgraded.

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.

Due to limited menu at this time, some of our favorites were not available, but that is never a problem here. Always something on the menu to satisfy. Steaks were great, cooked exactly as ordered. Crab cakes were fantastic. Crème Brule was, of course, delicious. Highly recommend. Get out and enjoy a dinner here soon.

It was my first time at the restaurant . I chose it for a birthday dinner. The steak (ribeye) was just ok. I thought it would have been better. The waiter Mike was exceptional and the ambience was nice. I probably won’t visit again.

We dine at fine restaurants throughout Birmingham. We have come to really like Ruth Chris, because the manager ran the place great. Made people obey dress code and never let a table get overly loud. However this visit was not that. People wearing tee shirts and hats and be loud. We were informed by that the old manager had left and we spoke with the new manager. But she didn’t seem to care to enforce the rules. Very disappointed in the atmosphere clearly going down hill in less than a month. However food was still great. We will probably not be back in every month now.

The Ahi Tuna was too salty. Our steak was good, except it had way too much butter on it. The lyonnaise potatoes were pieces of potato with onions , not true lyonnaise prepared. The cream spinach was good and our server was, too.

If this is where you first experience Ruth’s Chris, you will be disappointed. I didn’t think the food was Ruth’s Chris quality. Service was fine, but food was not what I expect from RC.
