    Ruth Chris is one of our favorites. The one in Destin is not their best. Everything was good, just not great and therefore not worth the price. We can do as good at 1/2 the price.

    We had a wonderful birthday dinner. We had cocktails before in the west bar. The bar in the main restaurant is closed. They do not offer any type of happy hour anymore. Service was attentive and all courses were extremely good. We had a nice complimentary creme brulee for our birthdays dessert

    We always love Ruth's Chris -- mostly because of the environment and there is no rush to finish our meal and vacate our table. Prices have gotten a bit steep though so the frequency of our visits may be further in between.....

    We ate at the restaurant on Saturday August 14th. They sat us in the booth near the front of the restaurant which was just perfect and quiet. The people were very attentive and great at their job. We ordered the Osco Busco ravioli definitely worth it just delicious that was an appetizer. Everything else was just perfect. Definitely would go back there again. We also ordered three of their desserts which were large and yummy.

    Eugene is a phenomenal waiter and the food is always amazing. We got the seared tuna for an appetizer and some steaks. Our sides were mashed potatoes and the sweet potato casserole and both were amazing. My favorite drink here is the raspberry cosmo, I order it without the rosemary though. Overall we absolutely love coming here for date night.

    My only reason for the negative ambience and noise level is because there was an extremely loud large table next to us and we came here for the low key, quiet setting it has always treated us with. Other than that, everything else was great as always.
