The only positive part of our experience was the wait staff. Extremely pleased with the professionalism of our waitress. Our food, however, was NOT good. The steaks were the worst. I’ve eaten at this particular restaurant several years ago and it was wonderful. I was in town to visit my daughter at her college homecoming and couldn’t wait to take her to a great restaurant. Boy, was I disappointed. We expected to spend between $300-$400 for a great meal, but instead we got most of our steaks to go for our dog. Steaks were not seasoned well and very over cooked. Ordered medium rare and received well done. Again, no fault of our waitress. She was fabulous.

It was what I expected. Excellent steaks. The decor is a bit tired, and the bartender was nice, but had to learn how to make my drink from a card. The drink was on their menu, maybe a little more training would help? Overall we were very satisfied, the steaks are worth the money. The sides were ok, a little underseasoned.

You'd think after all these years there would be at least one less than stellar evening at Ruth's Chris. It hasn't happened yet. You can count on their food being exceptional and you can count on the wait staff being professional and yet comfortable friendly hosts. This night was no different. *thank you, Mike B!).

Waiter attentive, well-made drinks. Steaks and shrimp a bit too salty. Best Bernaise in Bham. Sides good, though requesting an $8.50 baked potato in place of $9.50 mashed potatoes should not come with a $5 upcharge...that's a service faux pas you don't get at other fine Bham spots

The service by Dave was great.

I have eaten at your restaurant several times for birthday and anniversary celebrations and always find the food great. However, this time all of found the steaks to be a little chewy around the edges. Other than that the evening was as expected.

I made a birthday reservation for my boyfriend. I brought a cake ahead of date. The manager Paris was very accommodating. Our server Lionel was amazing. Food was outstanding. I had broiled cajun salmon fillet, and creamy spinach with a bonnie and Clyde cocktail. The birthday guy had seafood gumbo, double breasted stuffed chicken breast with a baked potato. And his cocktail of choice was a Georgia peach. The drinks were fantastic. We were the last ones to leave. And we weren't rushed. I will be back.

It was my anniversary and our first time going there. Juan was our waiter he was excellent. The service was amazing and the food was delicious. I had the shrimp and grits hands down best I've ever had. My boyfriend had the 8oz steak medium rare he said it was the best steak and the flavor was really rich. We loved it and will definitely be going back. First time there together but it won't be our last!

This was my second time coming here and it wasn't quite as great as the first. The service was mediocre (no drink or bread refill). I'm not a huge fan of the location of it. However, as always the filet was to die for. Sizzling in butter, perfectly cooked (no char, just how I like it). The creamed spinach was fabulous, and I normally am not a fan of spinach at all. I would definitely come back just for the food.

Best cheesecake !! The staff at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Birmingham were extremely professional and helpful with menu suggestions . First visit at this location , we do not live in Birmingham but we will definitely return to this restaurant. It was a birthday celebration evening and a special dessert was sent to our table. A complimentary lamb chop was served and delicious. Extensive menu with veal osso buco ravioli recommended as an appetizer but there are six delicious salads too. Shrimp and Grits is prepared without the creamy grits which I enjoyed. Of course the filet was a full-flavored prime cut. Large servings of vegetables and outstanding desserts.
