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.

Food and service was impeccable. He location however had a must smell that downgraded my rating to a 4 star....as for the service it was very good. My dinner companions enjoyed the filet, crab cakes and New York Strip....New York Strip was far the best steak of the night.
Even though it was heavy with butter....its not an everyday meal to eat at Ruth’s so it was well worth it.
Asparagus, brussel sprouts with bacon, mashed potatoes all delicious.

The steak seemed to be prepared differently than normal. It tasted good but previous steaks have tasted great. We love this place and will be back again soon!

Great ambience. Primary Waiter was amazing and a pleasure. Cocktails, steaks, and side dishes were very well prepared. However, frequently interrupted by side waiter who was constantly refilling our water glasses even when they were nearly full. Also, lobster tails were very disappointing, almost rubbery.

Everything was very good except the food. The BBQ Shrimp was not BBQ and was not special. My steak seemed steamed rather than Broiled I have eaten in many Steak Houses and this CowBoy Rib Eye did not compare. I paid premium prices for sub par food. .

Was my first time there after hearing so much about it over the years....... was not disappointed!! Had RIBEYE elsewhere and Ruth's Chris' version was like a ROLLS ROYCE to the other's VOLVO.... gave their food rating 4 out-of-5 (wanted to give 4.8 out 0f 5) ONLY because the grilled brussels sprouts was NOT AS GOOD as my own prepared version at home...... but good nonetheless.... and that the BLUEBERRY MOJITO..... though VERY PEPPERMINTY the way I like it.... wasn't as BALANCED in a refreshing sense as I'm used to from a HARD-TO-ACQUIRE select retail brand...... also enjoyable nevertheless..... the BREAD and the MASHED POTATOES very much so complimented my ribeye...... where I was not JUST pleased but very much IMPRESSED...... anyone who makes mashed potatoes BETTER than my late MOTHER'S mashed potatoes IS a champion of the food-palate..... THANK YOU GUYS for an enjoyable EXPERIENCE.... I will be returning!!!!

First of all, when I arrived with my guests, there was 'no reservation'. The hostess said it had been cancelled, but she could not tell me when or by 'who'. I had said I modified the reservation shortly after I made it and in fact I got a text./call asking to confirm I would be there, which I did. The hostess was not very courteous or at first willing to accomodate us. But in the end she did find us a table, but her customer service was far from 'good'. The waiter too seemed he did not like his job or did not want to be there that evening. He seemed impatient, annoyed and just not pleasant! I don't go to this location very much, although it is convenient, ao I will definitely think twice before going again.

This was our first time going to the location in Gaithersburg, the Bethesda location has been our favorite. The food was exceptional. I ordered a top shelf Gibson, and was served a “dirty” Gibson, gin with a lot of pickled onion juice added. Yuck! Dirty should be by request only. After a few sips the pickled onion flavor was overpowering and I asked for the drink to be remade, properly! Henry was more than accommodating. The service was sufficient, sometimes lectures go too far. We’re not fans of being interrupted to hear about the stove temperatures and the journey of steak from kitchen to table. TMI!!!! At the heart of Ruth’s Chris are the food quality and preparation, the warmth of the decor and the discreet service. These things invite us back. Please work on those things, keep them coming, and don’t embellish!

We celebrated my husband's birthday at Ruth's Chris Gaithersburg. Since I told the staff it was a celebration when I made the reservation, there was table confetti and a birthday card ready for my husband when we got there. Such a nice surprise! The staff was courteous and attentive and the food was delicious! The only problem was the cost. I've been to a lot of steak houses and I do know that they can be expensive, but because everything is a la carte, the bill was quite high. It cost over $100 a person and only 2 of the guests ordered an alcoholic drink (which cost $20 for each). If you don't mind the cost, then this is a great restaurant for very good service and great food!

Very disappointed that I was not allowed to open a special bottle of Bordeaux. The manager tried to explain a liquor license issue. Having owned restaurants and hold a liquor license myself, his answer was not correct. When I protested he did the right thing a bought our party of 9 three desserts.

I won’t be going back until the issue is resolved
