You know it is true you get what you pay for. Very upscale atmosphere and food cooked to perfection. Attentive staff who are very skilled at making you feel they want to help you have whatever you need. Expensive, save for a special occasion when you want to splurge on your sweetie.

I went to Ruth Chris's for thanksgiving dinner with my friend. Even though we had a reservation, it still took us 10-20 minutes waiting to get seated. The food tasted okay but it was clearly products of mass production. The plating didn't look as good as expected. The service was a bit disordered and messy maybe because there were too many people that night. I hope they can do a better job in terms of management and service next time.

I made a reservation, but was not seated until 45 minutes later. I was simply told to go to the bar and wait....No excuse was offered as to why we had to wait.

It was Thanksgiving and the food actually came out Turkey (room temperature), Gravy on Turkey was cold, stuffing was cold and the dessert was too small. Despite the temperature of the food, I plan to come back as I believe I will have a better experience.

I wanted my sister bd to be special i called and shared this information. 1st the valet had to be asked to park our car at valet parking and he gave us the keys to find our car at the end of the meal. 2nd the table. was plain no decorations as i am accustom to in florida, Ny, Phoenix. Nothing to say happy birthday it was a let down to say the least. Our sever and assistant were very kind and efficient. The food was good but everyone asked for extra salad dressing for salad. I enjoyed the night w my quest and was let down bcuz there was nothing special. I could have saved money at road house for steaks plus bake potatoes were cold could not melt butter let alone cheese. This site needs to come more into celebration and creating memories. I still adore Ruth Chris but never again at this branch. I.expected more. Price was no issue for extra decoration if needed.

The event was our anniversary and we enjoyed our meal . The service was great. My filet was good but the creamed spinach stole the show - very good. My wife loved her crab cakes. Our wine was outstanding and so was our complementary dessert. It was an excellent dining event.

This is Durham, NC, so many people do not want fresh lobster - but we called the day before our reservation and requested a live lobster to be reserved for us, and they got it! Over 3 lbs, perfect boiled and served out of the shell.

Steaks are excellent but pricey.
Remind the waiter if don't want salt on your steaks. The chief Is a little heavy handed for those who don't salt.
Steaks where cook just as ordered and the sides are great. Tables by the kitchen can be a little noisy.
If you are looking for a great steak this the place.

Best onion rings on the planet, for starters - and the friendliest staff that you will ever find. The presentation was excellent and the appetizers were things of beauty - but the steak itself? You can have just that and go to heaven with no regrets. The porterhouse is excellent (recommended medium, you'll understand after you see the sheer volume). Trust me, I'll be back!
