I have never left a negative review on anything, but I was not impressed. The first thing I noticed when we were seated was food smeared on the wall and peeling paint. The place has the ambiance of a dim hotel lobby. We really enjoyed our server and our main dish but the sides were underwhelming. This place seems like more of a gimmick than anything. I give it a 6/10, and that's only because of the "Happy Anniversary" confetti and how enthusiastic our server was.

Celebrating a birthday , I didn’t like that they didn’t have the table set up for a birthday and I specifically wrote in the reservations I need the table set up. Our waiter was AWESOME he was a young guy African American his name started with a K but he was great.

This was our first visit to Ruth's Chris Steak House. We were there to celebrate our anniversary and enjoyed it so much. Our waiter Tony was so nice and professional. The food was delicious. My husband's steak was cooked to perfection and I tried the shrimp and grits which was phenomenal. Would definitely recommend and will be going back.

Everything was excellent. We arrived on time for our reservation and were brought to our table immediately. Our server was Gil Pascua. He was excellent. Very helpful and friendly. And every single thing we ordered was fantastic. Get the crab cakes for an appetizer. We will be back soon for sure.

Service was slow despite a small dinner crowd. Server wasn’t very engaging. A very dirty bread plate was set at the table. Food was good, but largely forgettable. Ambiance was good - very quiet.

I hate to say it, but this Ruth’s Chris experience was just “meh”. My steak (t bone) was under seasoned and overcooked. I ordered medium rare and it was much closer to medium. My husband ordered the same temperature (ribeye) and his was closer to rare. Our server didn’t even bother to box our food. He just sat down some boxes and walked off. The best part of our meal were the au gratin potatoes. I was disappointed.

Food was excellent as usual for Ruth's Chris Steak House. With COVID seating the room was very quiet and provided great atmosphere for a quiet dinner with my wife. We always love the sophistication of the service and that fell below our expectation; our waiter was a little too casual, choosing to chat rather than attend to details. Other than that it was a great experience and we will be back - especially for the Creme Brulee.

On vacation and wanted a special night with my wife. 6pm visit and nearly empty of customers. Impeccable service by our waiter but food quality lacked. Filet Mingon had no flavor, just a piece of meat as admitted by our server that they do not season their beef sans salt & pepper. Logan’s Roadhouse has twice the flavor in their steaks at a fraction of the price. Annoyed by a group of men near us talking very loudly killed the special moment. Others were admitted wearing distasteful (non business casual attire) blue jeans, cropped top. Where can one go and what do we have to spend to enjoy a good meal in a good peaceful and respectable setting??? The price $200 is way to expensive for what we received. They need to up their standards or drop the price.

Everything from start to finish was very good. I loved the hostesses and their bubbly personalities. I was a bit disappointed to hear that escargot was no longer on the menu, but I quickly forgot about that when we tasted the calamari. It was exactly what we needed. The Zinfandel and steak were perfect! We celebrated our anniversary in style and ambiance and we will definitely be back

My husband and I had reservations for my BIRTHDAY. We arrived on time and was promptly seated. Our waitress (can not remember a name so hopefully since the reservation was made someone can track a name) quickly came up and took our drink order. Took her 15 mins to bring our drinks and said she got caught up. For a Saturday night this location WAS NOT BUSY WHATSOEVER but it was Okay fine no big deal.
Took our dinner order. We both ordered 8oz steaks medium well with add ons. THE WAITRESS suggested we order them medium because the plate they are served on is up to 500degrees and will continue cooking them. Okay sounded good. A GOOD while later she brought the food. Sat it down and immediately walked away before we had a chance to cut into either steak... both steaks were COMPLETELY raw. The tops and sides were sealed but that was it. We never got a single drink refill. We intended on just taking them home to recook ourselves with the price we paid for them. We waited 25 MINS (I counted) after finishing our add ons and sides before being asked if we were finished. Asked for to go box but when she brought the check she did not bring a box. Was over it by that point. We normally go to Knox but gave Chatt location a chance because its closer. We learned our lesson the hard way.

So disappointed to spend $150+ on dinner for 2 and it be as terrible as it was. Especially with the fact is WAS NOT busy for a Saturday night at 730!!

Ordered a 16 oz Ribeye medium Well, told the waiter I wanted it slightly pink in the middle. The steak was charred black and well done. Ordered a lobster tail on the side, it wasn’t even warm. The other sides were ok. It was our first time to Ruth Chris, probably my last time. Too costly for 2 Star meal.

When you make your reservation, there are new rules for keeping safe distance and required mask rules. The distance between the tables are acceptable as you still have to meander through to maze of tables to get around. The rules for dress code and masks, however, are not followed at all. We dressed as business casual as required. Several guests arrived with shorts and t-shirts and NO masks. They were admitted with no questions asked. I guess the rules do not apply as long as you are a paying patron. We have seen this issue before the pandemic so it should not be a shock. Ball caps, t-shirts, shorts, torn-jeans don't seem to bother this specific restaurant as long as you are paying for the $100 price tag. It means that Chattanooga does not have a luxury establishment to offer. So sad for people who want a upper level dining experience.

We would absolutely refer friends to Ruth’s Chris. We have always loved coming here but the food experience this time was not so good. The steak was overcooked but the broccoli was excellent a plus! The steak was on the thin side but we could still cut it with a knife! It came to the table sizzling but it was still overcooked. We had a great time as usual! We love you guys, but was just disappointed in the steaks which is what you’re known for.

This franchise location is among the top 5 total Ruth's Chris I've ever enjoyed. Best filet and cooking perhaps ever. Great bartender. Even big ice for my Bourbon.

As for open table however, it continues to baffle me that I can show up as reserved, sit at the bar, drink more that table guests, eat the same food, pay the same large bill and tip, yet open table refuses to give me credit for the booking since it wasn't at a real table! This is consistent over years now and poor judgement on open tables part! Wake up folks!

Our hostess Tiffany and server Michael were very nice and did a great job. Steak and lobster were wonderfully prepared and delicious. Sides were very good, except brussel sprouts were overcooked and they apologized and took them off our bill. Overall a great dinner.

We go to RC occasionally but I just never quite see the value. Food was well prepared except that much of it was kind of greasy. I think they load it up to give it a flavor that makes you think the value is there. The flavor was good, but not really the value of the price that RC charges.
