A wonderful dinner. Two of us split the Porterhouse, which was delicious. Others had the NY strip, the mini-filet, fish and the kids mall chicken tenders. Everyone was very happy with their meals.

Nice bar, great drinks. Bartender was engaging. Waitress was very attentive although place was very crowded and rather slow. This is a pricey place but great for special occasions.

Ask for Ken as your server. He made the evening exceptional in every way. This birthday dinner was more than we hoped for as we enjoyed fabulous food and an entertaining & excellent wait staff took care of our table with Ken as the star. I would recommend Ruth's Chris Steak House to all my family and friends for a special meal or anytime for great food and service.

Everything was amazing the only thing I can say is I ordered the lobster bisque and it was cold. I would have spoken to my waiter but it was so long before he came to my table that I just gave up.

Very disappointed. This was our second time to RC and the first was great. The service was terrible. We were there for 3 hours. My moms scallops were tiny and advertised as “jumbo”. I ordered steak and Shrimp. I had to ask for the shrimp because they didn’t come out with my meal. My sons ribeye was full of fat. I am not one to complain but I felt the need in this case. The chef should have never served the scallops and ribeye and it should have never taken that long to serve dinner., not mention our bill was almost $400 which we expected but we also expected an amazing meal and service. Will not be back.

Hardly anyone there but it took 30 mins to get our drinks then 1 hour to get our food.

My son had to be at graduation so he did not get to eat.

This is just silly for a Pre Fixe menu and a total bill of $480 for 6.

We picked this restaurant for brunch as it was advertised as having a brunch. After we were seated with drinks we were given dinner menus. I asked for a lunch or brunch menu and was told only dinner was being served this weekend as it is graduation and Mother’s Day weekend. How does that make sense? We really were not ready for a steak at 11:30 in the morning! My husband ordered a salad and asked for a crab cake to be served with it. That did not happen...first salad then later two sad looking crab cakes with no sauce. My son ordered shoestring fries and they never came and was later served steak fries. We were at this “brunch” to meet new friends and thought with a name like Ruth Chris it would be very nice....we were sorely disappointed.

We have been here numerous times. This was our first disappointment. As usual the service was impeccable. Gracious is the word that best describe it. However the food was a disappointment. My beloved’s filet was over cooked; my N.Y. Strip was tough and gristly. The salad of Heirloom Tomatoes and Mozzarella was EXCELLENT.

Very nice! We celebrated my son 21st birthday there.

Staff was very nice and helpful. Seafood tower was amazing. My son did not care for his sea bass but he enjoyed everything else.

The signature drink Georgia Peach Tea was really good.

Our family love Ruth's Chris. Being from Maryland, we frequent the Ruth's Chris in Annapolis and have always had a great experience. The Columbia restaurant was equally as good. Ken -our waiter was outstanding. The food was above average - pricey but tasty! We enjoyed a good meal with our 2 youngest kids who are students at UofSC.

We chose to not cook and eat out for Easter Lunch. 1:15 reservation and our the door at 4 pm. Table service was adequate and lead server checked back often. Other servers could not keep water glasses filled. A manager offered free/upgraded desserts because of the wait for our entrees. However, this was another delay and likely added 30 min. to our meal. My steak was cold. I would’ve sent
It back, but we had invested too much time already. Redheaded lady at entrance was rude when I asked about the status of our table at 1:15. She basically said it’s just now 1:15, so it will be a few minutes. Just dismissive and rude.

Excellent service from our waiter Ken, he went out of his way to ensure we enjoyed the experience.
Our steaks were cooked to perfection, although my baked potato could have been better by longer cooking.
The final bill was more than I was expecting, but overall it was a nice meal.
