This was our best visit by far! Our 24th wedding anniversary and Ruth's Chris made it so special. Our server (I wish I could remember his name) was excellent, and the food was OMG Awesome!

Always a place to find a great steak. The service was uneven forgetting things like a fork or water. I was surprised to hear the lobster bisque on the menu was not available because they were reworking the recipe at corporate. Not an upscale thing to hear. They provided a wine list on an iPad which was very confusing since it was totally different than the paper wine list. All in all a nice restaurant that needs some management attention.

Food is consistently good. By far the best option for steak in the Destin/ Sandestin area. Not innexpensive but worth it. Tara is a great server.

Wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. They even give you a free dessert if you go there to dine for your birthday. But it’s hard to save room for dessert! Best Prime steaks served on bubbling hot plates. The wedge salad is delicious as are all of the sides we’ve tried.

Was seated in wine room with special guest (CEO) and our wives. Chose Ruth Chris because of seclusive atmosphere to discuss important information. Service was great! Appetizers, sides very good and generous. My wife and I chose to split a Cowboy ribeye because of our experience with this choice at other well known steak restaurants. The choice was extremely disappointing because of the grizzle and eventually was not chewable. We did not want to return so not to make our special guests uncomfortable. We took the meat home and used for stew the next day. It was edible under this circumstance.

We will return, but probably would look at the steak choice at table side next time to make a better choice.

Thank you,

One of the worst meal I have ever had at RC.... Haven’t eaten there many time. The ribeye was tough and the crabs cakes were so fishy... I never give bad reviews but tonight totally desires this rating!!!

I’ve always loved Ruth’s Chris and always get the Filet. This time the Filet was more medium rare than medium, was chewy and areas of gristle which was surprising to me. The service was very slow and waitress not proactive. Asking if we needed anything yet while our glasses were empty. At that level of restaurant we should not have to ask for refills when you are literally standing right there. Just a bit disappointed.

We visit Ruth's in Destin, just about every time we're in town. 4-5x per year. Never disappoints.
Alex our young server was great/on top of his game. 3 of us enjoyed Filet, Ribeye & Grouper respectively with 3 great sides plus salads. Everything was perfect and tasty!

We were at the Destin restaurant on Christmas Eve and sitting next to us was a table that had a little old lap dog and some of us have pet allergies. On our way out we mentioned to the hostess stand that we felt this was inappropriate especially for Christmas. We were told this was a service dog however this dog was very very old to be a service dog. It should not have been allowed.

We had a Christmas work dinner here. It was $650 for 6 people. We enjoyed it, but I’m not sure it was worth that much money.

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.

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.
