Butter packets, plastic ramekins, limited menu,,,,same price tag.

It’s frustrating but not completely their fault. It’s a sign of the times for restaurants I’m afraid. Looking forward to them returning the grandeur we expect for this establishment.

We celebrated our 27th Wedding Anniversary at Ruth's Chris on September 19, 2020. We really looked forward to our meal. The hostess recognized our Anniversary and sat us at our table. The staff was great and the food was great as usual. The only downside was we were seated next to the door that went to the outside eating area. Lots of traffic by our table and every time the door opened and closed we got to experience a nice 50* draft. It does seem as though, by looking at our attire (my wife was in a off the shoulder dress), they could have seated us at a more appropriate table. The traffic through the outside door was constant because the to go orders were also delivered through that door. Not a great atmosphere. The food was great, the waiter and staff was great but the seating situation was not.

Dinner was fabulous. The only complaint we had was the asparagus was cold and tasteless. We were surprised when the asparagus charge was taken off our bill. Server was great. Friendly but not intrusive. Great night!!

This was first time at a Ruth's Chris when our expectations weren't exceeded. We'll still go back to give them another chance. But this was celebration of my mother-in-law's 92nd birthday and we booked here with what proved to be an unearned confidence.

First we were eventually seated 15 minutes after our reservation. We were placed near a very noisy table of possibly "over served" women that made the Ruth Chris dining room uncharacteristically noisy.

Service was slow: water glasses weren't filled quickly, salt and pepper came late. I would have ordered a second glass of wine had I been asked. When pouring two Cosmos at our table, our waiter Kurt poured from such a high vantage point and shook so vigorously that the content splashed us.

The shrimp cocktail didn't appear as fresh as in previous experiences. There were pools of water under the rather limp looking shrimp giving the appearance they had been frozen and just recently thawed. The au gratin potatoes were a tad bit crunchy in need of more oven time.

The manager, while walking around the dining room, never stopped at our table. They brought the bill before they brought our (granted) complimentary birthday dessert.

We eat at a Ruth’s Chris across the country a number of times per year. So, we are familiar with this wonderful restaurant. On this occasion, we requested a booth but didn’t receive it. The table next to is was unnecessarily loud. One of the gentlemen talked in almost a yelling voice. Very disconcerting. Our server, Elaine, was fair. Not the usual service we are used to here. She forgot our drink orders, twice. Finally received them half way through our entree. All in all, considering we eat out less now due to Covid, it was disappointing for the price. The food was excellent.

Our speciality cocktails and crab stuffed mushroom appetizer were excellent. Our ribeye steaks were among the very best we've ever tasted. Seasoned and cooked to perfection! Kurt our waiter was amazing. His attention to our total satisfaction was genuine, knowledgeable, and friendly. We will not hesitate to request a table in his section during future special dining occasions.

Of course their steaks are amazing, but their sides are excellent! Also, the wait staff's knowledge about the menu (from wine to sides) is extremely helpful. I love Ruth's Chris GR!

We love this place but this trip was sub-par. For the amount of money you pay, you expect for everything to be excellent. We both ordered steaks medium rare and they both came medium to medium well. There was very little pink in either steak. Also, normally - we would have made our server aware but no one stuck around to have us cut into our steak like most steakhouses do once it was brought out and it also took a while for her to check on us at all. She was a lovely server but maybe was too busy that night as there were several times we were just waiting a bit longer than expected.

Value wise- The BBQ shrimp was $19 for 5 very small shrimp and a piece of bread.

Also, some of the regular menu items that we come for were no longer on the menu. When we inquired about them, we weren’t given any further explanation. We assumed COVID and hoping it is temporary but who knows.

Overall, a decent experience but didn’t leave feeling “wowed” which I think you should after spending nearly $300 on a meal for 2.
