Been to the Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Asheville but the food at the Chattanooga location was far superior!

Waiter was not attentive. Food was good, but not outstanding. Ambiance was too loud and did not convey the true Ruth’s Chris expectation.

Thank you very much for ensuring that my wife's 54th birthday was great. We had a very good time and next time we are in the area we will be visiting again.

My first experience with Ruth’s Chris was in Knoxville. Had a great time. This location, however, lacks luster. It looked grand walking in, but the room we were seated in was just ok. Overall, the food was good and you certainly couldn’t say that it was bad. My partner and I had similar meals - he had a couple of glasses of Shiraz, a Caesar salad, the lamb chops and an apple tart. I had a Riesling and later a Shiraz, the Seared Ahi Tuna appetizer, lamb chops and crème brûlée for desert. Out of everything, our favorites were the Ahi Tuna appetizer and apple tart, both of which were delicious. Unfortunately, when it came to the main course, we agreed that we regularly prepare lamb chops better than the ones served here at our own home. At an added cost of $116 I’d say I didn’t feel the value. I can’t say anything bad about the wine, because...well, wine is wine. ;-) Regarding the staff, I remember our hosts being wonderful and our waiter a bit less so. Perhaps he was having a particularly bad day as the restaurant was about 60% empty - on Easter Sunday no less. The whole ordeal, with the exception of the appetizer and desert felt devoid of heart. As if everyone was going through the motion of providing a great service without any of the joy that doing so brings. All of the workings of a great restaurant are here, but the spirit, I fear, has long since moved on to more happening establishments. I hope it may return.

Everything about the meal was incredible. It felt like personal eating experience even though our server had more than one table. I felt very comfortable and distanced from others at the restaurant. Ruth Chris always delivers!

My boyfriend and I were so disappointed with Ruth Chris in Chattanooga this past Thursday, April 1st, 2021. The quality of the food definitely has changed. I am not sure that we will go back after that experience.

Great Steak! My aunt enjoyed the pork chop and apples. My uncle, wife and I had the cowboy ribeye, if you desire steak, it's the one you will want!

Things could have been so much better. The waiter seemed to forget about me, and that was after I seemingly blindsided him with my order after he asked if I was ready to order . The level of service just seemed out of place. I ordered a glass of wine and had to ask for it again once my food arrived. I wasn't able to finish my glass of wine because I was in a bit of a hurry. I didn't want to be rude by flagging him down so when the food got dropped off I asked if my wine was ready and he brought it fairly quickly. Closing out my check also took longer than I had expected. Steak was Hot and delicious but did not have the blue cheese topping I asked for, the charge for the topping was not on the check so I just assumed he forgot. Sides were garlic potatoes and brussel sprouts. The potatoes were good, as were the brussel sprouts, but I did not find them exceptional. Manager never stopped by, but I really didn't need him to. I probably would have just said everything is great as to not make the experience any worse. The host was very welcoming and seemed to genuinely enjoy her job. Steak was a solid 10 outta 10 so I'll be back. I guess I'll turn down my service expectation though.

Compared to Ruth's Chris in other areas, this one could not be considered fine dining due to the lack of dress code, apparently as long as the customers had shirts and shoes they were served. Also the only spring water they had was in plastic bottles. The food was fine, the service was fine, but the atmosphere failed. We would choose somewhere else to eat if we are in Chattanooga again.

Ruth’s Chris never disappoints with the food quality. The COVID protocols made it very awkward and almost ridiculous as the waiters and servers constantly fiddled with their masks and we’re hard to understand in this type of atmosphere. Overall we were pleased and would recommend Ruth’s to anyone celebrating a special occasion.

Our mashed potatoes and creamed spinach were cold. By the time our server came by to check on us, we were done eating. He did provide fresh sides to go and complimentary dessert, so they tried to make it right. Ambiance was covert nice. Will visit again.

Took my wife her for her birthday and the food was delicious. Only downfall is that they don’t do anything for your birthday except write happy birthday on a plate in chocolate and that’s only if you order a desert. The prices are what they are so don’t go if your not planning on spending $150 + for two people.

We normally love this place but with the recent price hikes on their menu and service was subpar it makes it just ok. Coupled with several other things that made the experience great that are gone. It was just ok. The table was very very wobbly and service was not where it should be. If It wasn't $250 meal for a couple it would be different but for that price you expect great service, great food, and a table that doesn't move when you put your hands on it or cut your steak. We will give it a miss for awhile sadly.

A great pace for a special occasion. We celebrated our 61st wedding anniversary. We celebrated our 60th March 5th. 2020. Had not been in a restaurant for exactly one year until last Friday. Thanks to President Trump and Pfizer.

Ribeye was the best in town. Potatoes au gratin and crepe brûlée were amazing. Paul, our server, was very attentive. We had a gift card so the price was even great.
