Food was great. It took roughly 20 minutes to get seated WITH having a reservation. And they were out of chocolate mouse cheesecake. Other than that it was very good!

The food and choices are always very good. It is pricey, but we want to treat our friends and/or family once in awhile. The best steaks around are at Ruth Chris. My husband really, really likes the spinach casserole. We had Lyonnaise Potatoes one time that I would like to see on the menu again. Really, all the food items are delicious. The servers are always attentive and take good care of us. We save special occasions for Ruth Chris.

I ordered a filet medium well. It came out very well done. I asked for it to be redone. 40 minutes later I still had no steak. I told them to keep it and take it off my bill. There is no reason cooking a steak should take 40 minutes, especially one that was cooked wrong to begin with!

For my first visit here, it was TERRIBLE. My reservation was 7:30 and didn't wasn't seated until after 8pm. Brooke, the hostess as I was waiting I asked for an update about 10 minutes til 8 she snapped instantly because she was "busy". When I requested a manager she came back with an attitude saying "she's busy and she'll be with whenever she's doing whatever she is doing". Not to mention it was my birthday and it was me and my husband's first night out in 10years. Megan the manager was very nice and understanding. Food took its time as well. I probably won't be returning.

My wife and I went to Columbia, SC for our anniversary and we decided to go to Ruth Chris for dinner. We could only get reservations for 5:00PM or 8:45PM; neither was the time we wanted (7 or 7:30PM) but we decided later than sooner so we picked 8:45PM. We arrived early (8:15PM) and we were told by the hostess we would be seated closer to our reservation time, which was ok with us. After complaining, we were finally seated at about 9:15PM. The hostess was very nonchalant about the issue and kept saying a few more minutes. Finally, the manger came over and seated us at an undressed table with no silverware or table dressing, just a dingy white tablecloth placed over the last guests mess. I had a $61 T-Bone steak and my wife had the $60 Cowboy Ribeye. The steak had no sear on it and almost seemed as if it was boiled instead of placed in a 500+ degree oven. The Lobster Macaroni and Cheese was tasteless and dry as the Mohave Desert. The BBQ shrimp was ok (given to us free because of the wait) but it was basically and under-seasoned shrimp scampi. The only thing that was remotely good was the glass of wine my wife had and the glass of water I had; oh, and the mushrooms were perfect, but we came for the steak, not mushrooms. The dress for Ruth Chris is "Business Casual" so why did I see people coming in with basketball jerseys and sagging pants (I'm a black man by the way), shorts, and every other outfit you can think of besides business casual attire. Going to Ruth Chris use to be an experience for my wife and I, now it has become a joke to us. This place is nothing more than a high price Sizzler or Denny's. I could have taken my wife to Panera Breads and had a better experience. We took our leftover steak home (more than half of it was boxed up), reheated it in the oven, and smothered it in A1 sauce and it tasted better than it did coming fresh out their oven. Save your time, money, and taste buds and go somewhere else. We will not be back. What a joke!

Thank you for your candor, Donald. Please know we’re doing our very best to provide guests with a great experience during the pandemic. Unfortunately some things do look & feel differently due to current regulations (not setting tables, reduced capacity that limits reservations, etc). I do apologize your meal fell short of expectations. Had I been aware of this, I certainly would have addressed & corrected the issue that night.

Our visit to the Columbia, SC location was an outstanding one. My husband and I had a previous experience in June of 2020, while celebrating his birthday, that was not up to par. Ms. Megan Cromwell, the manager, and the staff that we interacted with on 8/21/2020 made our experience at Ruth's Chris on this particular evening one to remember for all the right reasons. The food was delicious and the level of service was impeccable; thank you once again Ms. Cromwell and staff!

It was our 23rd wedding anniversary. The table we were sat at was very small, and we felt cramped. There was little or no room to move plates and drinks around. Everything was on top of each other on table. There was no candle light on table and one was not provided. I was thinking they would bring out a red candle, but one never came. All of these factors contributed to an experience that was less than what we expected for the price paid. The food was very good.

Atrocious! Steaks had to be sent back, mushrooms came out cold 2 times, over 3 hours and tried to leave. Waited over an hour for our wine to arrive. Truly unbelievable. They did comp us our meal and we paid for the late wine. If they accepted Responsibility that would be one thing but the GM just kept deflecting responsibility and never owned anything. Very disappointing as it was our last meal with our daughter before taking her to college.

my steak was supposed to be cooked medium, and it was cooked well done and dry. It had no flavor at all. My broccoli had no seasoning (bland). My wifes salmon was overcooked also. It was our anniversary so i didn't want to ruin it by complaining. we were both very disappointed with the restaurant and the food in particular. i expected much better for the prices that they charge. we will not be going back to Ruth Chris. I can get a much better steak at Longhorn Steakhouse for more then half the price.

hen I booked the reservation it asked me if it was a special occasion, which it was my sons bithday. I was expecting some acknowledgement of that event, especially after spending

The food was good, but it was an underwhelming experience. We have been to this restaurant a few times previously, and we always had a great experience. It made it worth the cost of the food.
This time, though, it wasn't worth it. We went for our anniversary, and the only acknowledgments we got was from the hostess.

Not what I expected. An overpriced mess. No one followed rules... dress, masks, etc... food was a waste of 154 plus a $20 tip. I wouldn’t return to this one. Someone praised this place but I can say the same.

The waiter was not very attentive. We had to wait to long for our drinks to be refilled. When requesting check it took a very long time for the waiter to bring it. He was very unpleasant which made my dining experience very bad. The food was great as always. But I will not be dining there anytime in the near future.

Wow, I have been to a few of these. But after eating at Ruth’s Chris in Columbia, I don’t plan on returning. The steaks were not to any stand especially when you pay $50 for a steak. The best dish was the salad, the lobster was overcooked, the fries we grease logged, the mash potatoes needed to be served in a bowl, it was like potato soup. Everything was so salty. For $400 I’ll buy my own steaks and cook them at home next time. Pretty bad when 3 of the people at the table look at you and say, your steaks are better then this. Not including the side dishes were not worth eating. I was very unimpressed with the food. I expect this at Applebee’s or some other chain restaurant but for the money you pay- you expect a step above quality then the run-of-the mill restaurant. Ruth’s Chris you have let me down. I hope you can turn your business around before it’s too late.
