    Ordered the large filet and was served the large end of the loin. The tough end. This is why premium cuts of filet are CENTER CUT! Unattractive staff. Beat with the ugly stick. See for yourself.

    Our first visit to the Destin location. Service was good but overall disappointed at the cost for the food and service we received. Despite having a “dress code” recommendation there were plenty of people dressed in shorts and flip flops. Definitely did not live up to the standard I have come to expect from other Ruth Chris locations.

    We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating. We special requested a dish that hasn’t been on the menu for at least 10 years and the restaurant was prepared and served us with no issues. We have eaten at many Ruth Chris restaurants and the one in Destin is our favorite.

    Steak was incredible, as were oyster and crab cake apps. Brussels are not crispy, but taste steamed then broiled - pass on those. Mushrooms were super yummy. Scalloped potatoes lack flavor but are ok. Would get a baked and loaded next time. Cocktails and bar tender were great. Theo was fun and our server was also attentive. The wine room was fantastic and special for our party of 4. There was no comped dessert or candle for a birthday which was a little odd. Would go again.

    Our waitress, Rachel, was very good. Our food was delicious. We had steaks, ahi tuna, salads, soup, several sides and 2 desserts. Our food was outstanding. I had requested a booth with a nice view if possible when I made the reservation several weeks earlier. They seated us directly next to the kitchen door in a booth next to another family with no view. It was so noisy from the kitchen that we had to ask to be moved. That is never comfortable. Overall our food was delicious but the overall experience would have been so much better had we not had to ask to be moved.

    Celebrated a birthday dinner, experience was as expected. Stuffed chicken was a little on the dry side. Loaded baked potatoes were phenomenal. POMEGRANATE MARTINI wow 10/10!! Steaks were okay, not be best for the price but one again experience was as expected. Our server was phenomenal a bit slow towards the end.

    Overall a good experience. When we arrived one of the plates on our table was quite dirty. It was the first thing we noticed when sitting down. It was disappointing and disgusting. Of course we have it to the waitress and she apologized. It was not her fault- it was whoever set the table. Other than that the service was excellent & food was delicious.

    Unfortunately, on this night of my birthday, was the most terrible and embarrassing experience I’ve had at any restaurant. Ever. They mutilated my filet mignon, after cooking the same steak 3x trying to achieve a medium rare temperature. The others in my party whom also ordered their steaks medium rare complained that they were tough and flavorless. The manager never approached our table. And my drink wasn’t refilled once. Service failed. Steaks failed. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed Ruth Chris in other parts of the world. This one I wouldn’t return to nor recommend to anyone.

    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..

    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.
