    food was great, cooked as we specified. Only issue was that this was first time we were charged a corkage fee when spending $400 on food and auto charged 18% gratuity for party of 5. I usually tip much more when I am not charged a corkage fee.

    My wife and I celebrate every major event at Ruth’s Chris. This was the first time for us to do it at the Durham location. But, we will most definitely be back again because everything was outstanding! The highlight of our night, however, was our server Caroline. She was the absolute best Ruth’s Chris server we have ever had! She was cordial, professional, attentive and very knowledgeable about not only the menu but the franchise as well. She made our night very memorable!

    Drinks from the bar were amazing. Service was horrible. Very inattentive server who seemed to be annoyed during our entire visit. Steak originally came out under cooked. It was taken back to be cooked a little longer. 20 min later we find out the steak was sent to the wrong table and they had to cook a new one. The next steak came out undercooked also. Sent back to have it cooked a little longer. Third time it came out great. My husband said his spicy salmon and shrimp were amazing. Manager was amazing and let us know my steak would be on him due to the mix up. Overall the food was good. Mostly a bad server experience. Not really what I expect from a Ruth’s Chris. Will definitely be back.

    We had asked that they make a “fuss” as we celebrated our son’s birthday. They said that they would and that was confirmed as my wife and I checked in. One problem: IT NEVER HAPPENED!! My wife expressed her disappointment and a “bill accommodation” was made. Additionally, we were placed between two very large parties with one charming but overworked server.

    Steak was cooked perfect and the flavor was lip smacking. The Au Gratin potatoes were awesome. Wife had the chicken and was great. I would pass on the creamed spinach next time. And we topped off the evening with the incredible bananas foster.

    Food was excellent. Waitress was excellent too. Funny any made dinner very enjoyable. It would seem as if they were understaffed though. Their usually impeccable timing was a bit off. Most restaurants get a pass these days on that kind of thing. But at Ruth Chris’s, you expect more at that price point.

    Great steak. Possibly the best in raleigh-durham. Consistently great. A chain with better steak than individual steakhouses. BUT... the prices are crazy high. New York City high and beyond. WITHOUT WINE, we spent $700 for 4 peope. $70 for steak! Ruins the whole experience. Awful value-for-money. Yes, the steaks are very good. But Porsche 911s are good cars. But at $250,000, they're a little pricey. So is Ruth's Chris. They've taken advantage of the inflationary environment to raise prices beyond reason. Double what I would expect to pay. 4 people? $350. Maybe $400. But $700? I won't be back.

    We had the grandkids. Ruth Chris always has superb food, but I did not ever go to one that had such a great kids menu. For 1399 they got an awesome 4 ounce fillet choice is a vegetable and dessert with a drink included. The quality of steak was just as good as mine. Really really a good value. I would take the grandkids there often they were very pleased and also the staff was extremely attentive and gave them many items to enjoy. It was just a great night. I was surprised with the only ones taking our children. I highly recommend this is a great place to enjoy special occasions with children and they love the bananas foster

    Very disappointing for an anniversary dinner - $47 rib eye was considerably worse than I could have picked up from Harris Teeter for $15 and grilled myself. Steaks were not cooked according to our requests-I requested medium rare and received medium well. My wife requested medium well and received medium rare. Sides were decent and service was fine. But very much not worth the price.

    The food at this Ruth's Chris was very good on this visit - have had somewhat better in the past. Service was quite deficient. Poor service began upon our entering the restaurant with no personality at the front desk. We didn't feel welcomed. Our server was slow, impolite, and could have cared less. We had to request some things. From a service perspective, this was next to the worst Ruth's Chris I have ever dined in. I am not going back anytime soon to allow management to improve the situation.

    Overall this location was worn out and tired. Our waiter was excellent. With that said, my cocktail was poorly made and there wasn’t anything special with any of the dishes. Relative to other options is dining experience was significantly underwhelming
