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 had family in town in preparation for the birth of my first baby. They were fresh off of a long car ride and hungry! We weren’t the fanciest dressed people in the place, but that did not seem to be an issues, thankfully. I got a reservation on Open table just a few hours before they arrived for 7 pm on a Saturday night. I was very pleasantly surprised. We waited in the lobby, comfortably seated for about 5 minutes before being sat. Our server, Chris, was phenomenal from the start. He was sassy, fun, and knowledgeable. He matched our energy and humor, had wonderful suggestions, and was attentive without hovering. My little sister asked for a shirley temple and was given lots of cherries which made her day. The service was fantastic, the wine was perfect, and the food was absolutely delicious. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the sides were tasty and hot! We had tons of leftovers which made for a wonderful steak and eggs breakfast. Overall a fabulous meal and a great family experience.

    We dine with Ruth’s Chris at least 6 times a years, and typically we enjoy the overall dining experience. However, not so much this time. Two of the three steaks we ordered were extremely fatty (the petite filet mignon - which should not be fatty at all, and a ribeye with more fat than usual) and so were the lamb chops. The sides were mediocre - the sweet potato casserole and mashed potatoes were caky and lacked flavor. We expressed our discontentment with the meal to our server and management. They offered to recook my partners steak; however, did not accept this offer, as we were hungry and did not want to wait longer for food, and it was not only her cut of meat that was fatty. They did offer to take good care of us the next time we visit the restaurant. Our server was very attentive and I appreciated him often referring to me by my last name, it added a personal touch to the experience.

    The steak was terrible. I ordered medium-rare redeye, which was so tough that I had trouble cutting it with a knife. I also ordered a lobster bisque, which did not contain lobster flavor. The waiters were good. But the dining environment is not impressive - a large, noisy room with about 20 tables. The overall dining experience is nearly as good as a restaurant with less than half the price.

    The food at Ruth's Chris is always good. My problem was with the rapidity with which it was brought out. We barely had time to start our appetizers when they brought out the soup and salads. There was a nice amount of time before the main meal arrived. I found the tables a bit too close together. Other than that, the wait staff was attentive as always and we had a nice experience.

    I like that they have a prix-fixe menu and that it included a steak/lobster entree. My steak was a bit more well done than the medium rare I asked for, but still delicious. I wish there were more options for dessert - only cheesecake was available. However, the restaurant gave us an additional dessert of our choice since we were celebrating our anniversary. They also gave us a signed card and decorated our table. I'm glad we chose the restaurant for our celebration.

    Can’t say enough about our waiter Chris. From the time we sat down to the time we left, we were treated as if we were the only guests at the restaurant. Chris was ever so attentive. Our drinks were always filled. He was very precise in explaining dinner choices and helped my husband choose the tastiest and most tender steak. ( Mind you, my husband prefers well done meat). Very conversational when needed, but far from intrusive! You are fortunate to have an employee like Chris.

    My wife and I made a reservation for our Anniversary. I ordered a ribeye and my wife ordered the sea bass. We ordered 2 sides, au gratin potatoes and Brussels sprouts. We ordered the crab stuffed mushrooms an appetizer. The mushroom were good. The potatoes were water logged and seemed to have been over boiled first and then some type off sauce and cheese melted on top. The Brussels were good. The ribeye was a disgrace for what you would expect for the price point at Ruth’s Chris. Very poorly trimmed with a lot of gristle and thin therefore hard to achieve a consistency would would expect in a quality steak. Very poor quality and I suspect standard or select grade at best. The sea bass was very fishy and did not seem to be fresh. The texture was mushy and not firm and flaky as you would expect. Overall a very disappointing experience and not worth the $250 we spent for dinner.

    Restaurants on Mother’s Day can be can be chaotic, with so many patrons to be seated, and expectations high. Ruth’s Chris did an amazing job. We were promptly seated in a room that successfully managed noise. We had a server, Kevin, who was amazingly attentive, on such a busy day. We didn’t feel rushed to turn the table over. The food was slower than usual, which was expected, and the steaks over cooked, but the overall experience was surprisingly enjoyable and relaxing. Well done!

    It took us a while to get seated. I believe they were short staffed so we had 3 different waiters. We got our entrees at the same time as our salads. At the end- we had to wait 20 minutes to get our check. The food all tasted good but this might have been the worst dining experience that I’ve had at Ruth’s Chris. I know the staff was trying their best-but yesterday was a little stressful.

    My husband and I received nothing but excellent customer service from the welcoming and pleasant front door hostesses to our wonderful attendant/server (Da). Da was attentive and had wonderful recommendations. He made sure to acknowledge my husbands birthday and provided him with a wonderful dessert. Everything was perfect. The stuffed chicken came out hot, sizzling and seasoned to perfection. Our glasses were never empty and when we departed our table to look for the restroom someone was right there to point the way. I can’t rave enough about our experience at this location but all of the staff should be commended especially in a time when great customer service feels like a rarity more than the norm. We will definitely come back.
