Ruth's Chris Steak House - Gaithersburg
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.

Always a great evening and experience at Ruth's Chris at Crown.
Our meal last night was disappointing to say the least. All of the food tasted “meh” as if someone forgot the seasoning/salt. The lobster bisque was bland and watery with almost no lobster. The salads were just “okay”. The bread was served warm which was nice, but the butter was lacking in flavor (unsalted at a minimum). Our 4 filet steaks were acceptable at best.
We’ve been semi-regular customers for years (2-4 times a year) - and even hosted a large party at this location a few years ago. We were excited to take our teen and pre-teen for their first dinner at Ruth’s Chris. We were all disappointed in the food.
Our server, Da, was as charming as ever; his assistant was very pleasant and tried hard. The staffing levels were thin (I know, the Covid effect). The ambiance was also “meh” - at least in the side room where we were seated.
Overall, it wasn’t even close to the pre-Covid experience we have had many times. The meal was extremely expensive for the experience and not the good “value” we have come to expect for a premium steak dinner.
Excellent meal. Kelsey took good care of us. Felt special.
Ruth's Chris Gaithersburg never disappoints. The food is outstanding and the service is excellent!
Second time dining at this location in the last year, and second time the steak comes rare while I order medium. It looked more rare than the medium rare order next to me. Last time I sent it back to be done correctly, only to receive it back 40 min later and when everyone else at the table already ate. This time I just kept it to avoid not having any food for a while. Not coming back again. They have no idea how to grill steaks despite the brand.
I treated a friend for his birthday and We were met with a card and decorations, and later, a nice little cake with candle. The waiter and servers were great, professional and attentive . The food, as always, was wonderful. My friend had steak with shrimp and it was cooked to perfection as requested. The sweet potato casserole is my favorite and was delicious! We enjoyed every fork of food. No complaints!
We years day
Good for a local steak house. The chef's specials were a good choice, especially the filet and lobster tail.
We have been to this location before so we were a little disappointed with the food this time. But it was New Year’s Eve and maybe they were busier than normal.
Great food and service. Steak was lit. Special occasions only unless you got it like that.
Porterhouse was prepared unevenly, which is a surprise for steakhouse if this caliber. Ordered medium and some pieces were pretty rare while others were medium well. Service was ok. Needed to ask for drink refills multiple times, again a surprise for a restaurant at this level of quality and service. Pre-COVID, we did not have these problems here. Maybe it’s a staffing issue (cook and servers)…. We would not return for awhile.
Celebrate anniversary with family. It’s been so long since last time dining at Ruth. Missed the sizzling steak on the hot plate so much.
It is really like refreshing our memories at Ruth before. Food never disappoints us.
Henry was an absolute delight! It was a perfect night out in the most perfect atmosphere! We will spend future date nights here!
Be careful when order steak. I order a medium rare, the steak came out well-done. My father order a medium, the steak came out medium-rare. I don't mind pay a lot for a nice dinner. Overall, it is not worth it.
Our server Jayson was very nice, food was great, but if you keep raising your prices no one will be able to afford to go out. You don’t want to go out of business do you? Thanks
Great way to end Christmas Day! Eric was great, as was the food and wine.
Everything was fine however the menu was somewhat limited. No bread pudding for dessert ! Room we were in appeared to be like a conference room to include a folding wall right behind me! No atmosphere. (The soon to be closed Bethesda location had way more atmosphere!)
Christmas Eve. We were seated in what like an auxiliary dining room with not one holiday decoration. Didn’t feel like Christmas Eve. A bit disappointing.
My Dad and I had dinner on Christmas Eve starting a new tradition after losing my Mom this year, and we couldn’t have had a better experience! Our waiter Kevin was outstanding and the food was just a good! Thanks you and we’ll see you next year!
Outstanding, we’re so happy to hear you had a good experience. We look forward to serving you again soon!
It is was birthday dinner with my family and it was so amazing. They made my table is beautiful with birthdays decorations. Plus we got an extra side on the house. Let me not forget the dessert! It was so good
Exceptional service & food. Always a favorite for holiday dinner.
Thanks for the great review! We appreciate it. Hope to welcome you back again soon!
It was a great time
Anniversary - they had a cute card and decorations on our table - it was a nice touch! Robbie was excellent!
We had a reservation, but when we arrived we were told that there was not an available table and we were offered a seat in the lounge… and this was after confirming on the phone and via text.
We did end up getting seated at a standard table, but experienced a level of service that was not as “up to par” as usual.
Food was great as expected.
Service was sub par for a $250 dinner for two.
Oh my. What a wonderful experience. Everything was wonderful, cooked to perfection, and tasted great! The only thing of note was the chocolate sin cake had a note of coffee and it is never mentioned on the menu.
They have great food with amazing people. Very friendly and accommodating.
Excellent meal. Our server Da was very good. Steak cooked perfectly.
Really disappointed. The service was great, but the steaks had no flavor whatsoever. Charred to a crisp and I almost choked on the burnt pieces. I was so disappointed that I didn't even bother to send it back, as I had lost my appetite. The calamari was delicious. The lobster mac and cheese was bland. The brussel sprouts were charred badly. And the desert was just nasty. I ordered creme brulee and my friend ordered cheesecake...we both didn't like the desert. I honestly would have had a better experience at Fogo di Chao for a quarter of the price, with a complementary desert for my birthday. I will not go to Ruth Chris again. Morton's will be my place for expensive steaks. Their food is absolutely delicious and well seasoned.
This was a fantastic place to eat. The waiter and staff were amazing!
Both my husbands and my steak did not come out cooked as requested (both undercooked) and had to be sent back. As a result the couple we were with ate and when our food came out they were were almost finished. The second time my husbands steak came out - it was over cooked.
Our server was mediocre but the manger did comp my husbands steak instead of trying for a third time.
This experience definitely did not meet our expectations for this restaurant. Not sure that we will go back.
The entire experience was phenomenal. The food was mesmerizing and the service was top-notch.
Our top Ruth Chris!
The food and the service were excellent.
Enjoyed a great Thanksgiving meal, staff was wonderful.
Excellent thanksgiving dinner last night and the service was amazing.
Todays, Thanksgiving! 11/25, I was very late due to transportation delay, when I got there my family was eating bread with creamy butter , we all ordered. I had some stuffed chicken which had cheese inside. I wouldn’t recommend it unless you skip the cheesy stuffing( I could live without it) the chicken was great, the mashed potatoes could’ve been mashed more, my asparagus was fine. The meal was fine, not Wow or amazing , just fine. Including gratuity my food and my son’s was $140, I’m good on Ruth Chris. I went, I ordered, I ate and I paid. Yes I paid my arm, they let me keep my leg. So thank you
