    It was a pleasant Thanksgiving meal. Turkey was moist- no need to cover it with gravy. I’m not a fan of any cornbread stuffing, so I won’t judge it. The wine suggestions were good too. Wine was served in glasses that were fresh from a wash- still had water drops in them. The advertised dessert was depleted-no ice cream to go with the cheesecake. Both the water in the wine glass and being out of half of the dessert were excused as it was Thanksgiving. This was the only restaurant open in the area. They were busy. We’re we grateful for a delicious meal and a very happy server. When we are just 2 on Thanksgiving again, we will come to Ruth’s Chris again.

    Service was excellent! Our waitress was friendly and helpful. Gumbo was absolutely delicious. Green beans were cold but still good flavor. Turkey, dressing, and gravy was also good. It was a very busy time for the kitchen and service help. We appreciate all the efforts to make our Thanksgiving Dinner special. Thank you.

    We have always enjoyed our dining experience at Ruth Chris. Unfortunately it was way below standards on Thursday. Let me start by saying our steak was lovely but it ended there. Our server was courtesy and polite but completely frazzled. We ordered drinks which were not received until after our salads arrived. Drink was horrible. Had her take my cocktail back and just ordered a bottled beer, figured that might be less risky than ordering another cocktail and faster. Our sides where even less desirable. Brussel sprouts were burnt and the Potatoes au gratin was just a bowl of tasteless goop. The other couple also had issues but they are going to write there on review. So disappointed. That is probably our last time to dine in what we thought was one of the best fine dining restaurants in Chattanooga.

    Went for Thanksgiving dinner. I was quite surprised with how crowded it was. Food was excellent. It was a tad loud in the dining room, since it was at capacity. We will be back and would definitely giving it a try. It is a on the pricey side, but the quality of the food and the service doesn't disappointment.

    We order the veal ravioli for an appetizer, when it was brought to the table it was not warm almost completely cold, we ordered a porter house for 2 cooked medium, lobster Mac n cheese no lobster and sweet potato casserole - the porterhouse was well over cooked, lobster Mac n cheese was not the lobster Mac n cheese with no lobster like we requested was a plain Mac n cheese which also came to the table cold to touch, and the sweet potato casserole was a little burnt but we kind of like it like that so we kept it. This experience was not great but our waitress was great. The manager made her presents but did not comp for anything we paid full price for an experience that should have been maybe an hour n 20 minutes that took 2 hours and some change. Will not go back to this location as we are from south Florida and have higher standards when it comes to the prices we are paying for.

    Ruth's Chris Steak House - ChattanoogaResponded 7 days agoCatelynn, thank you for the feedback! While I am thrilled that your server took great care of you, I am disappointed that your food was not up to our standard. I will speak with the chef regarding the side items and appetizer. Even though they aren't on sizzling plates, they should still be just as hot as the entrees! I would be happy to discuss this with you and apologize personally, so please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly! Megan Cromwell, Director of Guest Relations (864) 248-1723

    Our dinner was very good. The 8oz filets were wonderful and were prepared to our order. The mashed potatoes were perfect. My wife enjoyed two glasses of wine that seemed overpriced @ $13per. I had two Manhattans that, truthfully, were not good at all. After our dinner I found out why the drinks had failed as I observed the bartender drowning the bourbon with sweet vermouth in my nightcap. Huge overpour! The cocktails were grossly overpriced @ $18.25ea. anyway so I'll probably opt for a tall domestic draft or ice water next time. I considered mentioning the issue to the bartender but opted not to so as not to embarrass him.

    Ruth's Chris Steak House - ChattanoogaResponded 7 days agoThank you for reaching out, Bryan. You have our sincerest apologies that your overall experience fell short of our standards. While I'm thrilled your food & service were great, I'm so sorry to hear about the bartender's preparation of your beverages. We will be addressing these concerns so we may improve in the future. I would be happy to apologize personally for the shortcomings of your visit, so feel free to reach out to me at any time! Megan Cromwell, Director of Guest Relations 864-248-1723

    My wife and I had a great experience at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Chattanooga Tn. The wait staff was very well trained, they went above and beyond to insure we were well taken care of. Our meal was fantastic, cooked perfectly, sides were amazing, and plentiful. The atmosphere was perfect, there was music playing, but not too loudly. The cost is exactly what I expect to pay for fine dining. We look forward to our next visit soon.

    I remember going to Ruth’s Chris when I was younger and I’ve had some memorable experiences. My steak was excellent and so was our server. I mention the next bit not to trash Ruth’s Chris or get anyone in trouble, but in hope that the restaurant can recapture some of what could have made last night a more memorable experience. 1. The music was loud - like sports bar levels. I could not hear our server and I have excellent hearing. Our server was very obliging to our request and agreed with us. Our reservation was at 6, so I’m assuming everyone ahead of us had to hear that blasting. 2. Our lobster Mac & Cheese was lukewarm at best. We ended up taking it home to heat it up. 3. The battery powered candles looked cheap. Can we not have real candles for this $300 dining experience? 4. This is minor, but there was visible accumulated dust on top of the lampshades and sprinkler heads. You see the little things as an indicator of how passionate the people are about delivering good service in a top of the line restaurant. Our server was friendly and very attentive to us. We never felt rushed and were made to feel welcome. You can overcome a lot with good service, but I believe if more attention was paid to the items mentioned, Ruth’s Chris can be ‘the place’ in Chattanooga for a great steak dinner.

    Ruth's Chris Steak House - ChattanoogaResponded on November 16, 2022Thanks for your feedback. Consistency is one detail we've built our service on. Regardless of how long since you last visited, you should still receive, the food, service, & ambiance you expect from previous visits. I'm glad your experience was positive overall, but I apologize for our missteps, including the temperature of your side & the state of the atmosphere. I'll be sure to share your concerns with the local team. We hope you'll still join us again! Megan Cromwell, Dir. of Guest Relations

    Dinning at Ruth Chris Steak House is an exquisite and wonderful treat. This was our first time to visit. We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. We were warmly greeted by several of the staff as we were shown to our booth. our server, Alysea, was outstanding. Being our first time to a Ruth Chris Steak House, Alysea took a few moments to provide us a history of the business. Afterwards, she explained to us how various food items are prepared and served. As she took our order, she explained more details on how each item would be prepared. From the salad we ordered to the main course, all food items were delicious. Our main entrees (a New York Strip Steak for me and stuffed chicken for my wife) were probably the hottest in temperature we have ever received (hot in a good way). Both were seasoned just right. The side items were also hot and tasty. Throughout our meal, Alysea would check on us periodically to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. She also made sure our beverage glasses were topped off. Overall, we had a wonderful dinner experience. Alysea's service further made our dinner event most enjoyable.

    1. Tried to call to make reservations. The phone rang for 4 minutes before I gave up. Tried again 10 minutes later and a woman laughing hysterically. Inquired about reservations for our 20th wedding anniversary and she said it wasn’t necessary because it wasn’t busy. That’s when I just made a Reservation for 7:15 with open table. I knew we should have went local, but since we’d never tried Chattanooga’s Ruth Chris so we took a chance. 2. Arrived at 7:15. Seating went relatively well although if you have burns on your table cloths and it’s an expensive restaurant just throw the cloth away. It’s weird to have the hostess explain why your table cloth has stains as she kinda throws confetti at us and reminds us that Ruth Chris is #1. 3. We wait. And wait. And wait. Over 20 minutes before a guy wanting to refill our water comes over and I’m able to ask where Camilla is. We wait some more and she eventually appears and says sorry, I really am a great server. They told me about you guys, but I forgot. 4. We order food. We don’t see her again until after food has arrived. Thank God the food was good. 5. The water guys starts busting the table before we’re even done. 6. We order a dessert to go and they instead bring it to the table with the check. 7. We never saw anyone else again so sorry, one of Ruth Chris’s creme brûlée ramekins now lives with us. I literally carried it out in the dish it came in. 8. Hostess watched us walk out and said nothing as she looked back down at her phone. The whole thing took nearly 2 hours and there are way too many local steak houses with amazing food at a fraction of the cost. Lesson learned.

    Ruth's Chris Steak House - ChattanoogaResponded on October 3, 2022Tammy, thank you so much for the thorough feedback!

    Service was concerning for that level of restaurant. Water glasses were not filled timely. Drink refills were not timely. Straws requested twice. I normally would not complain but as a result of the price, the service is expected to be spot on. In addition it was a birthday celebration in which the birthday cake for the birthday guest is free. It never showed up or was mentioned. Fortunately we had brought our own cake otherwise it would have been a dud of a time. The food quality was top notch.

    Ruth's Chris Steak House - ChattanoogaResponded on September 20, 2022Thank you for your candor, John. I'm disappointed to know that your recent experience fell short of your expectations. I will be sure to share your feedback with our team so we can be sure to provide better service moving forward. The complimentary birthday dessert likely wasn't brought out since you had your own cake, but this is a good reminder that the little things make a big impact. I hope you'll give us another chance to wow you in the future. Stephanie Tobben, Director of Marketing

    This location is not as good as others, specially the steaks. Also the lights are pretty bright making the restaurant feel cold, it does not have the traditional steakhouse look/feel.

We pride ourselves on serving perfectly cooked premium steaks, and I'm disappointed they fell short of your expectations.

    From beginning to end Ruth’s Chris was stellar. Earlier in the day I dropped off table decorations as well as a cake for a birthday. I’d asked for a specific champagne to be at the table upon arrival as well. The table decorations were set up and the champagne was there as requested. The food was amazing but the star of the night was Mary, our server. She was superb. She made sure we had everything we needed and treated us like family from the beginning. If all of the servers/wait staff are on Mary’s level then you’ve struck gold choosing to eat here.

    Ruth's Chris Steak House - ChattanoogaResponded on September 9, 2022Thank you for the high praise, Emily! Our staff can always be relied upon to go above and beyond, and we are happy to accommodate however we can. I'm thrilled to hear that Mary didn't miss any of the special touches, including those you requested. She is indeed a wonderful server, and I know she was happy to make your night so memorable! We're glad to hear you had a wonderful celebration, and we hope to see you again soon! Happy Birthday!! Megan Cromwell, Director of Guest Relations

    Went for a special occasion, food and service was excellent. We learned from our last visit to get our own steak but to split the sides. The portions are very large and more food than we could eat.

    We were in Chattanooga for a special occasion. Our server, Mary, was knowledgeable about the menu and proposed several selections on drinks and entrees! Impeccable service and We had a great time! My only concern was the use of cool whip on top of my dessert. I was expecting homemade whipped cream.

    Ruth's Chris Steak House - ChattanoogaResponded on September 6, 2022Thank you for your feedback and review, Anna! Our team can always be relied upon to go above and beyond.
