Ruth's Chris Steak House was founded in New Orleans, Louisiana by Ruth Fertel, a single mother of two who wanted a better life for herself and her two sons. She purchased "Chris" steakhouse in New Orleans which had been operated for the 38 years prior. She changed the name to Ruth's Chris when a fire forced her to move from the original location. Today, there are 142 Ruth’s Chris Steak House restaurants across the globe. We look forward to our opening in Gaithersburg, MD.

I was extremely upset and frustrated by Ruth’s Chris’ reservation policy. I had made reservations a week and a half in advance for a Saturday night dinner, and received a call Friday afternoon asking me to confirm the reservation. Unfortunately I was at work and busy almost all day Friday, and was shocked Saturday morning when I received an email informing me that Ruth’s Chris has cancelled my reservation, apparently due to a lack of interest on my end. I understand that they are trying to make sure people keep their reservations, but I have never in my life had a restaurant cancel my reservation because I didn’t call them back within 14 hours. Obviously I was interested in eating there because I had made a reservation! We were able to get a later table, but the whole experience left a poor taste in my mouth. If my business isn’t worth it to the restaurant because I didn’t have time to call them back, then I can eat steak somewhere else. The restaurant isn’t good enough to have that level of arrogance.

Restaurant week menu used to be great. No more.
Don’t have option of upcharge for any NY STRIP or better steaks.
Strawberry shortcake dessert is so awful it’s inedible.

Eric, our waiter, was very intuitive. He let us take our time deciding on what we wanted to drink and eat. He made an excellent suggestion for a white wine that went well with my garlic crusted halibut.

The experience was superb, from the pleasant and friendly bartender who took our picture (occasion was our 40th anniversary), offered congratulations, showed us the menu, and chatted with us, to the wait staff in the dining room who were wonderful, attentive, accommodating and helped enhance our fun evening and the happy occasion. When a water glass slipped out of my hand and broke, they moved us to another table, which was a gracious and kind thing to do.

Bsolutelt wonderful! We went for our anniversary and everyone who greeted us, the hostess, the waitress, the manager all wished us a happy annivwrsary. When we got to our table, it was decorated with some cute confetti and a card personalized with wishes for a hapy anniversary. It was nice. The service was pleasant and the food was quite yummy! The crab stack appetizer was a little spicy with lump crab meat, mango, cucumber, onion, avocado, and vinaigrette. The steak was cooked perfectly and very tender. We were even surprised with a creme brulee desert with a candle and freah berries with chicolate writing of happy anniversary. We will be back!

The service was outstanding; the food was very good with the exception of our dessert (Chocolate Duo) which was meh. The only thing that felt "off" was the inconsistency with their stated dress code vs. what they allow. We received a reminder about their dress code when they confirmed my reservation and there are posted signs when you enter the restaurant. This is expected in a restaurant with this level of food and service. Some of the diners were far under dressed per their code. This would be fine if they didn't make a point of the reminder and the signage. Either enforce it or don't.
Definitely a go-to for special occasions!

We got sat down in a very dark place away from everyone. They didn’t ask us it the would be ok. The location wasn’t crowded. The food not ok for the price we paid. A Tbond steak that costs around $55 dollars and it wasn’t tasting good????
I am a very disappointed ☹️. I’d rather want to get my money back. I didn’t enjoyed.

We were celebrating a special occasion and Ruth's Chris made it memorable. Our table was decorated and a hand-written card wished us a happy anniversary. The wait staff was warm and attentive and our steaks were perfectly prepared and delicious. Thank you, Ruth's Chris.

Superior everything for this senior couple: A cozy booth where we could sit side-by-side (we're hard-of-hearing. Fun cocktails and appetizers to begin, a couple of very nice and fairly-priced reds to pair with the steak, and a dessert from the special 3-course menu, made for an affordable but luxury evening for us. Next to our table were 5 young women -- looked like high school seniors , diverse, well-behaved, clearly enjoying a nice dinner together in adult surroundings. (Here's a shout-out to their parents: Thanks for helping share a bright future for our great country.) And we appreciated the attention of "Da", our gracious and friendly server. A really well-managed place that makes "chain" seem like "home", thanks.

Steak was undercooked. Lobster was rubbery. Didn't have the time or energy to send them back. We will never order the lobster there again.

I ordered filet with shrimp which was a mistake, as my companions' ribeyes were so much tastier. The ribeyes were fork tender with nice external char and were absolutely delicious. Sides of garlic mash had roasted garlic taste and some texture. My favorite course of the evening was the hot chocolate cake -- not exactly a lava cake but similar -- with a taste that was reminiscent of good hot chocolate.

Our server was so accomodating. He suggested mint jelly with my lamb chops which i don’t know since this is our second time to dine in ordering the same thing. It’s just that the table is so small that if we order for more it won’t fit on the table for two. But aside from that definitely will be going there again.
