My family and I enjoy Ruth's Chris immensely--it is our go-to-place for getting together for a nice meal, and this is the seventh Ruth's Chris I have eaten at, but it is the first I was disappointed with the service. Though we had two waiters and two helpers--no one ever seemed to be around. In addition, because of the duplicate staff, we were asked multiple times for items and had to ask multiple times for items. So while the food was great per the usual RC experience, the service left something to be desired.

This was our first time dining at a Ruth’s Chris. Very nice atmosphere. The staff were all personable. We were attended to by Ben, an “assistant” who was very professional. Cheryl our server/waitress was absolutely wonderful. She has a number of years in the service industry and her attention to the details showed. We were visited by two separate “managers” who asked about our experience. The one gentlemen, I believe he said his name was Mike, was not afraid to clear the table of empty dishes. I would consider this a high end restaurant. The service was great!

The food... the steaks were perfect. We could cut them with just forks... we did it! The lobster mac-n-cheese could be used as currency that’s how great it was! The staff let us know that the sides are shareable and they meant it! The sides were huge! The bread pudding was “ok”. We will try something else for dessert next time!

Secret Intel: This is our second visit, and we learned to come on an off night, for us it was a Sunday. We requested the "wine room", which is an intimate setting for 4, maybe 6, even thought it was just the two of us. This room is in the middle of the restaurant and you are surrounded by hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of glassed in bottles of wine from their restaurant in New Orleans, they can never be served. So as not to ruin the story, check it out for yourself as you order the mouth watering steaks and desert. We did comment we felt the sides were getting smaller, harder to share, but maybe that is in our mind. It was delicious, and only in Destin can you get the wine room, if you know this secret.

The staff was great. It was our 1st time dining at a Ruth Chris and honestly I feel it's overrated. I ordered the 16 oz. Sirlion strip & it was a tastless small roast. I've had better steaks elsewhere. Would think twice before going again. Disappointed.

Good and service was very good! It was a birthday and they were kind enough to comp the desserts! The only complaint I would have is that we were seated by the back door which lead to the patio where there was live music and there was a lot of traffic by our table as we were eating

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.

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.
