We frequent Ruth’s regularly at home and have visited locations around the USA and internationally. We use Ruth’s and our trusty go to, not tonight ... we were very disappointed.

Seriously ... several hundred visits over the years and this was last place. Server was very disappointing, had to remind her to take a drink order and has to ask twice for butter for lobster tails? Steaks, looking more and more like Outback (size) and my plate was not the sizzling circle as normal. Crab crake app just one? 75% of the locations give you two. Mashed potatoes anything but super hot and the asparagus was soggy and anything but fresh.

Most discouraging was our server ... unprofessional, disinterested, and almost dismissing.

Our bill for three ... with tip was just short of $400. We pay regularly for what we have come to live in the Ruth’s in Troy MI, Pittsburgh PA, Chicago, IL, Dallas, TX and in West Palm Beach ... all locations we visit regularly throughout the year. Troy, MI and Pittsburgh are go to for great dinners almost monthly.

Congratulations Ruth’s Raleigh/Durham (Fayetteville Road) you are last place. The atmosphere, location, and feel was great but besides the entry and exit the in-between 2 hours left a great deal to be desired.

Again, we are not angry people ... but hard not to feel the urge to weight in on our level of disappointment.

Most respectfully,
FAS - Northville, MI

If I were going again for a special occasion, I would highly recommend going to the Ruth's Chris in Cary.

Our family was celebrating our eight year old grandson’s birthday. Unfortunately, because his fillet was sizzling in butter on his plate, he did not like and eat his fillet. Consequently, he did not eat anything, not even his birthday dessert. We were all disappointed!

Staff was very nice Mgr very polite Roses for my wife on table wonderful Love Ruth's Chris having been over 100 times around The country Issues this time : asked for special table because of event we Was a small booth table top that couldn't hold all their platings and glasses very unromantic/ my mw/well strip came med rare / rare so we didn't get to enjoy our meal together / spent $150 on wine that needed to w filtered - it was excellent but crystals on glass was wrong / bread was cut up and seemed a touch stale versus loaves they used to sell / Ordered my wife's favorites creme brûlée it Came out 20 minutes after we'd finished meal and paid check! "Because of a large party-"Place was 2/3 full as we had an early 6:30 reservation Left 20% tip and will return But experience is not at Ruth's Chris levels of expectation

Ruth's Chris is always consistent. Terrific steaks, perfectly prepared and excellent service. Three of us had the rib eye and one the filet. We shared the broccoli and lobster Mac and cheese.

I had the lobster bisque which I would not order again. Not bad but definitely not the best I've had.

We had a delightful dinner at the steakhouse. The steak was done to perfection and very tasty. Our only disappointment, which was a big one, was that, although advertised, there were no Maine lobsters available. We chose this steakhouse because it said they had 3+ lb Maine lobsters. We had a nice chat with the very pleasant manager that evening and he explained why they did not have lobster that evening. He very politely suggested that next time we planned to dine there, that we call ahead and reserve a lobster. It was, all in all, an enjoyable evening.

Unfortunately this Ruth's Chris is just another franchise and that can't hit the mark as an excellent steakhouse. Baltimore's (of all places) Ruth's Chris is still number one in my book. Going to steakhouse should be a phenomenal experience. Staff should on top of everything and the server should make sure the kitchen is delivering perfect food. This place failed in all respects. (1) Instead of the usual bread basket they brought a basket with four slices of bread. Seriously! (2) Medium-rare was delivered as medium-well and 5 minutes later after I started eating the server checked on my food. Too late. (3) Potato O gratin order well-done was delivered with crispy potatoes soaked in cream. This will not be a place to visit.

My mother and I had dinner on Thursday night to celebrate my birthday. Ruth Chris exceeded my expectations for an enjoyable evening. For the special occasion, we had rose petals on our table. The meal was delicious and savory. My ribeye steak was tender and juicy. My mother tried the Maryland crab cakes - succulent and tasty. I did receive a complimentary dessert. Our waitress was attentive to our needs and on top of her game. I will definitely return for another visit.

Great atmosphere. I usually get steak, but chose their stuffed chicken this time. It's was not my favorite, but I always enjoy their sweet potato casserole. The dining experience is always great that is why I love to come here with my family and friends.

Worse experience we have had at a Ruth’s Chris. Meal should have been paid for. We came to eat together and my daughters meal wasn’t good. They recooked it and took a while and it still wasn’t good. The meal all together shouldve been taken care of.

The 40 ounce Tomahawk was exceptional! The manager was very accommodating as they did not have the wine we desired.
