Brought my 14 year old son here for a special father-son steak dinner on Saturday night and had a superb meal. His cowboy ribeye and my NY strip were cooked to perfection and tasted excellent - my son is still talking about it! Wait staff/service excellent and friendly. Obviously a pricey meal (as expected) but worth it. Will return with the other son!
There was no wait time for our reservation. We a tually got there early and were accommodated immediately. Our waiter was friendly, the food was outstanding. We had the porterhouse for two and it was cooked to perfection. The whole experience was worth the cost of the meal.
Ken is the BEST! We always have a fabulous time when we go to Ruth’s Chris!
Our server Rachel was polite,friendly and efficient. The NY strip for my husband (birthday fellow)wasn’t as good as expected or as when we were there before, sister in law’s Cobb salad was excellent. Sweet potato casserole was delicious. Vegetarian plate was almost terrible, except for the asparagus. The filet and shrimp dish was great. The tuna was okay but had to ask for the crab meat. The mushroom were great. The petite filet was superb. The alcohol beverages were pleasing So overall we survived but I was a bit disappointed since it was my husband’s 70th Birthday celebration 🤗
Kitchen was way behind. Seems like they ran out of some food. Have eaten there many times and was something very wrong in the kitchen.... We were all finished and my wife just then got her food and the side.. Very poor coordination with server and kitchen.
Hit or miss. Was there two weeks before and it was very good. Came back March 10th and the food was cold and service non-existent.
Food was underwhelming compared to other Ruth's locations. Service was extremely slow. There were tons of children dinning here, not the atmosphere I was wanting.
We were first time visitors. The food & service lived up to its reputation. We werent disappointed!
Been to Ruth’s Chris several times; but steaks were extremely dry, highly disappointed. Will probably not return; a bit upset since it was our anniversary.
Celebrated our 26 anniversary with a diner at Ruth Chris on the recommendation of a friend. Table was ready when we arrived. Food and service was very good. There was a large party nearby that was loud but not too bad. Nothing the staff could do about the that. Very good experience. Will be back.
The food, service, wine selection and portions are all great. It is expensive. The chop salad, gumbo, streak, lobster, and onion rings were all superbly prepared- absolutely no room for dessert.Only down side is that it feels like a hotel dining room (which it is). For a high quality , expensive meal , a little more ambiance would be nice.
Ruth Chris in Columbia was excellent. The food was terrific and the service was exceptional. Would go there again in an instant!
After 2 below standard experiences, I must say my recent visit was the best service ever! My waiter Jamie was Amazing! Our drinks were never below half and it was his pleasure to make sure we were satisfied. That is 5 star service!!!
Sides came out after guests had finished entree and 1 of the sides was never delivered at all. Disappointing.
Our service was horrible. There was a large gathering at this restaurant and it apparently impacted majorly on the regular customers. Long wait for food and drinks. We will not return.
I have eaten at Ruth Chris on several occasions (in Charleston and in Columbia, SC). My husband and I have been impressed on every occasion. The food is great and worth the $.
The only recommendation for the Columbia restaurant would be the possible use of live music like in Charleston. That adds an extra something to the atmosphere. Just a suggestion.
We will come back either way and recommend highly
Lovely meal in a nice atmosphere. So thrilled about the gluten-free offerings there now.
I absolutely love Ruth's Chris. I decided to go for my birthday and as always Ruth's Chris delivered. My server was Chris and he was so accommodating and awesome! They really made me feel special on my day.
Excellent meal and service
Ruth’s is always excellent, but was a tad off norm this night. Normally, my steak is cooked perfectly, bit “medium” came out “rare” by anyone’s standards on this night. Otherwise everything was top-notch!
I tried calling ..it shows 187.50...it should be 177.50.....the bill I added wrong but the everything was right except the total...I added wrong.....call me at 803 261 7076....thanks for your help.....the waiter and the food were great
Gave this a second chance and was not disappointed. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The sides were excellent. Service was top notch on a busy Valentines night. All and all an outstanding evening and dinner for a special occasion.
Absolutely amazing! Walked in and I was so surprise and happy to see such a romantic setting
Service was exemplary even for Valentines Day. Food arrived on time and as ordered.
Great except table leaf was collapsing on my knee constantly!
It was our 32 anniversary. Service was great and good amazing. At the end of the evening they gave us a créeme brûlée for both which was a nice touch. Wine selection amazing. Obviously will go back there
The truth of Ruth’s Chris is you’re paying for the experience. The staff is attentive and respectful, as well as incredibly diligent in making sure your evening goes well. The food is very good, but there are many other restaurants that provide similarly high quality and good tasting food for a fraction of the cost. Referring back to my prior statement, Ruth’s Chris isn’t the best value out there but overall is a very good choice to take that special someone in your life on occasion.
Superb restaurant and amazing food! Love, Love! The service was still impeccable even on a busy day like Valentines Day!
I had the worst experience ever at a Ruth's Chris restaurant this week. My college aged daughters and I have celebrated Valentine's Day with a lunch or dinner since they were in the 7th and 8th grades respectively. This time we chose Ruth's Chris because they have awesome lunch options. When we got there we were informed that they were not offering the normal lunch because of the Valentines Day holiday. So at 11:15 am our choices were only from the dinner menu. (i.e. Steaks, chicken, fish, etc--NO SANDWICHES) Rather than accommodating us, the manager suggested that we get up from our seat in the dining room and sit in the bar area and order from the "bar bites" menu. This is despite the fact that we were essentially the only ones in the place at that time.... I have eaten at the Charlotte Uptown location for years and have spent thousands of dollars there with my family and business associates because of their dedication to customer service. The Columbia location obviously does not understand or value that concept.
Nice evening. Great meal. Very tasty. Wait staff was very nice.
The sweet potato soufflé is amazing. As it relates to the steaks, they’re good. To me, Ruth’s Chris may be losing their magic. Many more comparative steak restaurants are out there with better delivery for less.
We arrived at the time of our reservation (8:15), but we were not seated until after 8:45. The restaurant said they had no record of our reservation through OpenTable.
Most of the food was very good, but my steak was average.
For a special occasion (mother-in-law’s 80th birthday), the wait was surprisingly long and the service overall was less than we expected from Ruth’s Chris.
Will think twice before returning.
Everything was ok, we didn’t receive our appetizer until after we received our main course. Had to ask for them still at that point. I believe it is way overpriced.
This is not the first time we went to Ruth's Chris but apparently Saturday evenings the staff is overwhelmed and not in the best mood to attend to customers. It was also VERY loud. We had better steaks here before.
WAITRESS was absolutely fantastic! Food Suburb Dinning area beautiful and Quiet!
Had lunch with an old friend. Perfect location for conversation.
That place was nice and the food was great!
Took my daughter after daddy/daughter dance for special date night. Got seated at 7:45. Waiter Tony was awesome! Steaks finally came out at 9. Both steaks ordered med well but came out well well done. Tony apologized and sent back. Second time filet was even more well done then first time. Todd the manager came out and apologized and comped the meal for our inconvenience. Also a date across from is was wearing very provocative clothes where her entire breast were revealed several times and made my daughter very uncomfortable. Also lots of F words coming from that table. Was not the experience or the memory Inwas trying to create w my daughter. I have been here several other times and had no issues. Not sure if I would go back again? Tony and Todd were very kind and at least they tried thier beat to right the wrong.
Have eaten at Ruth's several times and this was my only somewhat disappointing experience. The steak was not up to standard, the shrimp and grits had sauce poured over it and the normally great Au Gratin potatoes were very average.
For the price you expect a wow factor, and on this occasion there was no wow.
Unfortunately this was the first negative experience I have had a Ruth Chris Steakhouse. Our party consisted of four people, there for a business meal. Our wait time, most likely due to a large party in the back, was almost one hour. Service was lackluster at best. Water was refilled but as a group we were hardly checked on the entire dinner.
Food for two of the three was undercooked. The last steak was overcooked. Lobster add-ons were not great, although Shrimp was out of this world. Sides were great as usual. Creme brulee was terrible, hard and cold.
We discussed our experience with the Manager, he was apologetic but didn't make up for it in any way.
With so much great food in Columbia, we'll save money next time and go to some of the surrounding resturants that ended up being much better.
