My wife and I celebrated my birthday on a weekday night. When we arrived we requested outdoor seating and were quickly accommodated. We each ordered a drink, an appetizer and an entree, and we split two sides and a dessert. Everything was very good and the service was excellent. This was my our time to any Ruth's Chris and we were very pleased.

Came here to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Brandon was excellent as our server and coordinated the best service. It was also handy that the food was delicious. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the sides were delicious

The food as the worse part of the dining experience - a complete water of $! The only part that was good from the meal - the bread and shoestring potatoes - I ordered lobster and they were the size of a jumbo shrimp (dry and no meat at all almost) …. My husbands steak was flavorless :( the place was lower class than I recall from years ago in palm beach where I loved it
Waiter was okay - he lacked the skills to offer better service (like serving me first before my husband, remove them plate with the silverwear in it - so I don’t get stains on my garment, didn’t offer me a black napkin seeing that I have a black dress on …) … I will never return / this was not worth the 200$ dining experience - the hostesses when we arrived were too busy talking to one another instead of greeting us - I had to say hello first to finally be acknowledged by them …

Steaks were not the best this time. Heirloom tomato salad was excellent, as well as the desert.

We have been here several times. We ate on the barside so we could get a burger. On my reservation I noted it was my Girlfriend's birthday. They did put pedals on the table, but no cake, dessert, mention of our special occasion or anything of that nature. Also, our service was subpar for a $150 restaurant. Our drinks were empty twice, no cleaning of our table between course as we have had previously, etc.

The food was pretty good, so no real complaints there, it just needs work on the atmosphere and service.

Very nice quiet dinner with a most amazing waiter with top notch service and attention to detail. Loved the tuna appetizer and the premium fillet that were cooked to perfection! Also loved the pineapple martini. Plan to return on my next business trip to Durham.

Food was good but a bit overpriced for such small portions. Waiter was nice but seemed to forget about us a couple of times and forgot my boyfriend's cappuccino with dessert. Overall a good experience but could definitely be better for the price.

We are frequent diners at numerous Ruth Chris. I enjoyed the enhanced menu although they were out of 2 items we ordered. I’m not a big fan of the more casual atmosphere. If I’m paying those prices I’d like the environment to look like they invested in it. The food was excellent as usual.

Service was extremely slow. Was clear server did not want to be there. Presentation of food was slow. Main course trailed salads by almost 20 minutes. Steaks lacked flavor. We dine at Ruth’s Chris frequently in our home town. We were disappointed in our experience visiting this establishment.

The service was awesome! I ordered a filet and it came out medium like I ordered, but they serve the streaks on a 500 degree plate and as I ate my steak it continued to cook. When I was halfway through it was closer to well done so I used my bread plate for a while. It was a great cut but it was over cooked and dry from the plate. The sides were very good and presented beautifully. I would suggest ordering your steak less done than you like it or asking for a regular plate instead of the hot one.

We have eaten here several times over the past year. The food continues to be good but the restaurant has declined due to lack of dress code and rude clientele. The table of four next to us watched a soccer game on an ipad the entire dinner. They were openly loud and obnoxious. Unlike other Ruth's Chris, there is not a dress code so anything goes - shorts, tank tops, jerseys, tattered blue jeans, etc. It's like eating at Golden Corral with high prices! Management does not seem to care.
Our server, Steve, was excellent. He was polite and attentive.
