    First time ever going here, and I must admit it was well worth it. My date and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff. Our food was prepared exactly how we asked and what seemed like right of the grill and right on to the plate. The temperature was just perfect for consumption. I had the stuff chicken breast and she had petite filets w/shrimp. We shared the brussels sprouts and Au Gratin potatoes. PERFECTION!!! We’re already looking at the next date night, perhaps Ruth Chris is going to be dinner..

    The service was outstanding. The venison chops were amazing this was a chefs special. The ribeye was good not as good as I expected but seems like all nice restaurants the chefs specials are always the best thing to order. Spicy shrimp the best I’ve had.

    This chef has access to wonderful venison during winter seasons. I enjoyed venison loin chops that were perfectly prepared. All other aspects of the occasion were excellent. Any visit to a top restaurant will be costly so for my wife and I it is a special occasion. However we plan to come back as often as our budget allows.

    We found the special menu for early birds and once we asked for that menu, our service quickly went downhill. Two tables that arrived after us were waited on and received their orders well before us. The food was excellent, but the main waiter was terrible. It’s still not cheap with the early bird menu, but it was definitely noticeable with the poor service. We will not be returning and sadly it’s right on the property where we stay.

    As always, excellent steaks, salad, and side dishes. Was disappointed, though, where we were seated. I had requested a booth when I made the reservation. The restaurant was not busy at all and there were several large booths available. When I reminded the hostess that I had requested a booth, she said that the booths were for parties of four to six people. We were a party of three and therefore had to have a table out in the middle of the restaurant. We were placed in the traffic area between the kitchen and the bar. Very disappointing!

    Pros Always good and upscale. Service was great! Food was very good and cooked to order. Very enjoyable as always at any Ruth Chris’s I’ve been to. You can count on it! Get the shoestring fries….really fantastic. Light, seasoned and go great with your steak! Cons Very expensive on any item. I expect that here but it’s still always a surprise to just see how expensive things are? Petite Filet was tasty, but wasn’t the best quality piece of meat I’ve had here before in this particular instance. Wine was great, good selection, but again, very pricy. Restaurant mark-ups on wine are pretty outrageous throughout the industry. Overall, a good experience in a high-class and quiet setting. Their “wine room” at this location is really unique, all surrounded by glass and can be reserved to eat in there for an interesting, private experience.

Steaks were cooked to perfection. Our server, Shane, was outstanding. He was attentive without hovering. Would definitely request him again.

    We went for a 50th birthday and the staff delivered a quality, memorable experience. The service was attentive without being overbearing and the food was phenomenal. When we arrived at 5:30 the dining room was sparsely seated but was packed when we left at 7:30. Despite the activity it was relatively quiet in the dining area away from the bar. The tables near the bar/entrance were a bit noisy.

    We had an outstanding dinner at Destin’s Ruth Chris. Our meal was perfect….large portions, served hot, and flawless timing. The staff was exceptional. I go to other Ruth Chris restaurants in Orlando and Anaheim. Destin’s restaurant excels above their peers. A nice touch was the fireplace, making a cold night more cozy. Our fabulous server, Kelsey, made our dinner pleasant and easy. Importantly , ENTIRE STAFF was happy, welcoming and accommodating. We will be back!

    We celebrated my husband's birthday at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Destin and used a gift card we received for Christmas to help defray the cost. The restaurant is beautifully appointed. First we had cocktails in the East Bar and then moved to the main dining room. The food was amazing including the stuffed baked mushrooms, chopped salad, filets, au gratin potatoes and creme brulee for dessert. Tara, our server, was professional and her timing was perfect. The prices are hefty but worth it for a very special occasion.
