Enjoyed the experience. The meal was excellent. Tried filet mignon with crab at the suggestion of our server, Robin. It was great and our server was excellent. Will definitely go back again.

We always love going here and the food was great but for three people to go and spend $450 (without a bottle of wine) is priced too high.

Mash potatoes were gritty and flavorless. Steaks were tough. Food was sadly just average which is different than our previous trips

We had reservation for 6:30. Got there at 6 there were very few people there. They did not seat us for 30 minutes at 6:30. I’m not for sure why.

Kind of sucked because they put us in the very back room although there were many tables empty in the front. Just seem like a waste like no ambience or whatever. There were six of us it’s like they were too lazy to put two tables together in the front. Disappointed about that

The food and service are wonderful. The markup on the wine we had was outrageous. I got a bottle that is available at retail for around $45. The cost at Ruth's was $122.!

An "as usual" night at a Ruth's Chris -- Great food, excellent bartender and server staff! Will definately continue to go to this location.

The reception however left a lot to be desired as they welcomed us, checked us in while we went to the bar, then, after informing them we would just go ahead and eat at the bar, cancelled our reservation in your system rather than simply showing us as dining and having fulfilled our reservation request. This makes it appear we were no shows and unprofessional in our handling of not notifying you of cancellations. It also shows your system that one of your reservations did not show up and eat, which is of course not accurate. Worst of all, when confronted to correct the check-in, they (reservation staff, not management) wanted to simply argue and debate. Manager corrected once he was called. I have notified an old friend in the marketing area of HQ of this practice as it does not illustrate the proper level of respect for those doing the right things in Ruth's Chris'.

Everything was just delicious.....,wait staff was very good. Ribeye was tender. The only thing was my wife’s plate which had steak and lobster should have had the edges cleaned before put on table. Looked a little bad on the edges.

We visit this restaurant every year we get to Florida for our vacation and anniversary dinner. This was our 33rd wedding anniversary and unfortunately was my least liked visit. Previously we were seated in a more secluded and private table. This time we were in a dining room and the ambiance was certainly lacking. I enjoy football but don’t really care to hear the debates during our special dinner. Might I suggest when you know someone is celebrating a special anniversary you seat them in a more appropriate setting. Next year I think we might a new tradition.

Awesome dining experience! We celebrated our 45th anniversary tonight, and our experience rates right up there with the best! We have dined all over the world, but have had only a handful of places we would rate as world-class. This is one of those places.

The food was delicious. Would like some smaller portioned options that aren’t such large cuts. Overall, the food was very good. The busser was very attentive, only negative was our waitress. For the price of the food; service, friendliness and attitude should be 5 star from the wait staff.

Had a wonderful time and experience there. The staff from the Valet to our server was amazing. The food was excellent. If I had any complaints it might have been just a little bit to warm in the building for me. Overall I give it a 9.5. We will most definitely be adding this restaurant to our list of regulars when we visit Destin again.

My husband and I highly enjoyed our date night at Ruth Chris Destin. We sat in the back at a cozy, secluded booth where we could sit right next to each other. I would highly recommend the veal osso bucco ravioli and the bone in filet. The entire staff from valet to the hostess to our waiter were highly attentive to our needs. I really look forward to our next date night there!

I’ve been to other ruth’s Chris steak houses and this is by far the best I’ve ever been to! Everything from the voodoo shrimp, to the filet to the creme brûlée was absolutely perfect!

This is a great place to get a tasty steak - a little disappointed that they feel the need to charge THREE TIMES the normal price for a common bottle of wine - shameful You are making MORE than enough profits on the practice of pricing everything individually I love good food, but don’t like feeling like I got ripped off -

Excellent. Alex was very good and attentive waiter
BBQ shrimp sauce however very watery and not as creamy as usual at other Ruth Chris locations in New Orleans
Drinks were excellent and thanks for the complementary birthday dessert

Celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary at Ruth’s Chris and it was absolutely delightful. They had a nice cozy booth reserved for us, the service & food were outstanding. We were also treated with 2 free desserts, and 2 free glasses of champagne. Lovely time.

If you’re looking for a steak in a sea food environment, YES. My wife has a shellfish allergy so steak it is for us.
