This was a part of my “WELCOME HOME FROM JAPAN‼️” treat from my husband❣️

It was, without a doubt, our BEST dining experience at Ruth’s Chris—thanks to our server, KEN!! He was attentive, personable, and just plain friendly!! (Of course the food was great as well!😉)

Wow...where do I begin? The wait staff was truly in-tuned to our needs and stimulated our taste buds with the BBQ shrimps and horseradish beef tips as an appetizer. The entrees were cooked to our expectations and we were presented with a wonderful strawberry shortcake dessert. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

We’ve been to this restaurant several times since it opened. It was the worst service we have had in a long time. I understand that it was a very busy weekend in Columbia and at the hotel in particular. It was extremely loud and our table was essentially ignored. We had to ask a server for the wine list and it took 10-15 minutes for our waiter to even appear.

I took a couple of college students there for a congratulatory dinner. While it was not my first time there it was their first time. The staff were very patient and accommodating. The food was excellent!

We took our daughter out to celebrate an accomplishment. We all ordered off the prefix menu for $60 a person. The salads were small and nothing special. My husbands steak was over Cooked and sent back. My shrimp were tiny and so over cooked I could barely cut them...I did not eat them. The sides are small and you only get one for the $60. The dessert was very dry and not very good. The service was ok but the server asked us five times if we were ready to order in the first 10 minutes of sitting down. My husband went to the rest room and she even asked then if we wanted to wait for him to come back to order...duh! With a couple of drinks the bill with tip was $340!
I enjoyed my free breakfast at the hotel more....seriously! It is a racquet!!

The entrees were good but two of the side dishes were cold. They had issues with all the wine I chose. I was told they were changing over their wine menu. They only had $43 a glass wine options, but with persistence I found one for $22 a glass which is ridiculous. Overall will not return. Definitely not worth the price!

I have eaten at this restaurant on several occasions and the food was ALWAYS great. However, this time the steak was average. I just expected a better palate experience.

The food was spectacular, especially our entrees and the calamari. Our server was on top of everything and extremely professional and polite. Ruth's Chris New York Strip has been and still is my favorite steak anywhere.

Celebrated my wife's Birthday here, overall we were satisfied with entire experience but was a bit surprised with cost per dish to quality of food served. We were not at all disappointed in taste, however we have extensive dinning experience from our travels and felt quality was a notch below expectations for prices.

Not up to Ruth Chris standards. The quality at this location is not what we are accustomed to and let us down. They were kind and tried to remedy but that took 35 minutes making for a disappointing visit.

When paying premium we expect a premium level of service. It was early, with only 5 or 6 tables occupied. We waited an inordinate amount of time before the actual server came to our table. When he did arrive all he did was clear the other settings, took more time to finally come back. Over the next two hours the service was neither attentive nor prompt. No excuse for this, The food however was excellent.

We visited your restaurant to celebrate my son's birthday. Ken was our server and he was nothing short of superb. His service was excellent and he made my son's birthday very special. The food is always the best ever and I love the atmosphere because it is not loud and people dress and behave very respectfully of others. Ruth's Chris is one of my all time favorites.

Went for the three sliders lunch. Bread was wonderful! Home made butter. The three sliders lunch was underwhelming. One shrimp, one beef, and one crab. However the sliders were very small. Very little sauce on either one so they were not very tasty. The three onion rings were large and tasty but almost room temperature. My guest and I were underwhelmed with the experience overall.

Good as always, but my steak was not done medium. They offered to make it right. Still a great place, one off steak does not deter me. I will be back in August, I hope they do it right temp (I think they will)
