My husband & I were celebrating our 29th anniversary on Sunday. We have lived in this area of Florida 28 years & had never gone to the Destin Ruth's Chris, so we treated ourselves to this expirence. The ambiance was quiet , elegant & romantic. We loved our meals, except my husband steak was a bit tough. I enjoyed every bite of my creamed spinach & grouper dinner. I would recommend a trip here if you are able to come.

This was the worse visit to a Ruth’s Chris we have experienced. The valet and greeters were excellent; after being seated it went downhill. Our waiter Tara F. Should a lack of interest and attention. We waited over 15 minutes for acknowledgement and water. We waited another 15 minutes just for bread . After taking our order Tara Did not check on our table for approximately 30 minutes at which time she stopped only to advise us our food would be out soon, never asking if we needed anything additional etc. we were seated behind a large noisy party and it appears that was her attention based on a larger tip I’m sure. We frequently t Ruth’s in our hometown of Austin regularly and during travel and this is the worse restaurant visit of his caliber we have experienced. What a way to end a vacation.

Food and service were absolutely excellent. My rating is 3 stars because of the noise. There was sax player going table to table and it was so loud you could not talk at the table. If you want a quiet dinner, call and check the music first.

It was our anniversary. We have been to some of the fine dining establishments. We had never considered Ruth Chris because of poor reviews on YELP. Decided to try since OpenTable app had higher reviews. I should have stayed with Yelp. Given a very private table. That was fine. View of the bar and the workers standing around talking with nothing to do- or do they? Also, I guess they were guest of the hotel or condos that are maybe associated with Ruth Chris? Kids walking thru w/o parents. Adults walking thru looking like they had just left tennis courts. I have no idea where they were going but exited to the back patio. If it is a pass thru, it should be stopped. The water boy was fine. He kept water glasses full and bread on table. Not sure who was to remove our cocktail glasses or refill my husbands tea. He ran out twice and had to wait five and ten minutes before a refill. Our main waiter was visiting. A lot. My steak was to be Med rare. It was Med to Med well. My husbands was Med well, which is how he ordered. Shared a wedge salad-nothing special. Baked potato-nothing special. Brussel sprouts- burned. I could eat them but my husband hated them. Looked online at Ruth Chris food pics and the sprouts pictured were still green. Mine were brown and dry. Going back to trying to find a fine dining experience near our home.

Our meal was fabulous as was our service. I had the bone-in strip steak which was very flavorful and tender, while my wife had the appetizer seafood tower which was enough for her meal and provided me with an appetizer of a shrimp cocktail as well.

 (Columbus)·Dined on August 4, 2017

They advertised Summer menu but it's ended at 6:30 but no where was the mentioned clearly if I would have know we would have readjusted our Reservation . Ordered white wine it was never put into a chiller just left on the table for the Florida humidity to get ahold of it. Salads and sides where very small. I see why they went out of business in Columbus . They can't not compete With hyde park or Eddie Merlot's if you want amazing steak and amazing service I would recommend mcguires Irish pub . There steaks and service blow ruth Chris out of the water. I recommend saving your money and passing on ruth Chris
