We had a marvelous birthday dinner for my husband! It was a 5 star experience from the hostess to the server. The drinks were perfect, the food delicious and the complimentary dessert mouth-watering! We look forward to our next visit! Thank you!

Poor execution on our meal. Ruth Chris is usually an excellent meal however this location failed to deliver. The broiled oyster special was supposed to be a breaded sensation but was rather a soup of undercooked slop. The potato au gratin was huge slabs of potato covered with broken cheese sauce. The steaks were reasonably done but not what I typically encounter from an expensive steak place including other Ruth Chris locations. While visiting Destin we had 5 high end dining experiences that were all positive with Ruth Chris being the exception which was by far the lowest experience.

Rachel was one of the best servers we have ever had! She was very relatable, informative and gracious to our party, some of which were young and on the verge of adulthood and can be easily judged. Not all young people have an opportunity to experience fine dining, but their lack of experience doesn’t make them bad people. We were celebrating a 20th birthday and Rachel was fun, professional and kept us in the right track. Thank you for a lovely evening!!

I have been to at least 7 Ruth Chris and this will be my last. Just not on par with the other “nice” steakhouses. Spent $1600 and service was mediocre at best and food was just decent. Five of us tried to get drinks before dinner but couldn’t due to lack of servers. When I complained on the way to the table the host could completely care less. Ordered a large seafood tower but they were out. When my steak was over cooked I didn’t even bother to complain. There are too many good places to eat to waste your time here. With the way it is being run my guess it is on its way out. Look elsewhere.

We were celebrating my husbands 63rd birthday- he was greeted by the host with warm welcoming smiles and a "Happy Birthday" - the young man that seated us as well as our waiter and assistant also were very prompt at wishing him a Happy Birthday. Alex was our waiter and he was very knowledgeable about the menu items and was very attentative without being annoying. We loved the wine room as well as the decor. It was nice to have a private conversation without worrying if others can hear or trying to speak over the music that was playing. Our meals were done to perfection - I always get the bone in ribeye and this time I added the blackened grilled shrimp - DELICIOUS! Alex reccomended the Berries in Cream for dessert which I have never had before - a very pleasant surprise! Yummy!!! My husband was thrilled with his Free Dessert - Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake with caramel drizzle... to die for!
Thank you for a beautiful evening! We will definitely be returning!

The service was very slow and non attentive. I always order the bone in filet and hardly have to use my knife. This time I had to saw my steak and it was awful. The atmosphere was not professional at all. I’ve been here 3 times and never had a bad experience. The other night made me question if I’ll go back and spend that in’s of money on the experience I had.

Prime steaks were served sizzling hot, drenched in butter. The meat melts in your mouth. Outstanding! Lobster was tender and tasty, asparagus was pencil thin and not trimmed or peeled, disappointing.
