My Husband and I like to go there for our anniversary, the food and service is outstanding, it would just break the bank if we went on a regular basis. This is my favorite place to get a steak, no where else can top it in my opinion :)

We ordered the Chilled Seafood tower for an appetizer and the presentation was impression. The seafood was fabulous and fresh. The steak with blue cheese crust was cooked to perfection. The service was, as always, was outstanding. I always feel welcome and at ease. It beautiful decorated and you are treated like royalty without feeling “stuffy” or pretentious. I return time and again!

We have been to other RC restaurants in other cities and the Destin location did not disappoint. Service was impeccable, steaks and sides were absolutely perfect, fried green tomatoes were the best we have ever had. The comprehensive wine list was another great highlight of our evening. From appetizers to dessert, everything was top notch.

The elegant setting and superb waitstaff enhances the perfectly prepared menu. Delicious. Worth every penny. Our waiter Jerry was wonderful. The expansive dining room melted away under Jerry’s attentive service making our table of 8 feel intimate.
Everything you would expect and everything you didn’t realize you were missing from other experiences all rolled into one.
I can’t remember the last time I felt so good after a meal because I don’t think I have ever felt so good after a meal; a sentiment echoed and marveled at by each of us!

Ruth's Chris has been on my husbands bucket list and we were able to try while in Destin. They did not disappoint. Started with the pomegranate margaritas and was possibly the best cocktail I have ever had. Attentive table service. Food was perfect. My husband had a filet and I had grouper both topped with crab meat and bernaise sauce. For sides we shared the au gratin potatoes and creamed spinach. Finished with carrot cake and coffee. The whole meal was perfect in taste and presentation. We will visit again. The ultimate date night!

Not your typical Ruth’s Chris experience in Destin. Our waiter seemed very rushed and overwhelmed. Very slow with drink orders and desserts. Seemed like a nice guy but wouldn’t really know because he was always in such a hurry. Meanwhile, one table over. A waiter literally stood and visited with the table of 4 the entire time they ate. Real strange and not what you are used to at a Ruth’s Chris. Perhaps understaffed but the waiter shooting the breeze a table over from us sure didn’t seem to mind his co-workers running all over the place. Food excellent as always.

We enjoyed the night with good food a good server and a live entertainer that was pretty good. We had a good experience until we started to leave. We took our nephew and his girlfriend to eat and it was their first experience at Ruth's Chris. On the way out, we asked the hostess if it would be alright to make a picture of them in the wine room. It was unoccupied and after 9:30. She said no, it's prepared for a party that hasn't arrived yet and I don't want you in there if they come in. We just spent $400 on a meal and wine and she couldn't even be gracious enough to allow our guests a quick photo op in the wine room. Certainly doesn't make me want to go back anytime soon.

I tried to change my reservation from 5:30 to 5:45 and was told I couldn’t yet when I arrived there were plenty tables available and there was never a time when there wasn’t several tables available.
Our table was located just adjacent to waiters work stand making it difficult to walk around, along with servers having to use the work stand to submit their orders.

Exceptional meal. The food was perfectly prepared and served with attention to every detail in a way reminiscent of the great Chicago chop houses of the 50’s and 60’s.

Jamison and his crew were in charge of our service and they did not disappoint. Well paced and attentive but not hovering and pushy. It was a wonderful birthday dinner and coincidentally, close to our 50th wedding anniversary.

Thank you for this great night.

This place was top notch! Everything was so good and the atmosphere overall was incredible. My sisters and I went for my birthday and it was the best place we could’ve picked. Everything was wonderful. The food was outstanding, the service was impeccable, and they treated me really well for the occasion. I received a free dessert for my birthday and the live music came and played at my table! It was an experience! I recommend this so highly, if not for anything at least the experience. You will not be disappointed this place is literally so great and I can’t say enough about how good the food was. For sure the best steak I ever put in my mouth.
