    Wonderful experience! Ian was our waiter and he was fabulous! We ordered the shrimp cocktail, split a house salad, split a loaded potato and split a filet. Portion size was absolutely enough-we were stuffed and didn't ask for desert. This was probably the best meal I have had out in a very long time. The ambience was so nice. Our reservation was for 9:15 pm, a little later than I normally eat but the meal was a perfect temperature. The shrimp were perfectly chilled, the cocktail sauce amazing, the salad to die for, the filet cooked to perfection and oh my that loaded potato was unbelievable. It could have been the best part of the meal! We will definitely return and ask for Ian whose service was impeccable.

    I guess next time I will wear my Seven Stars Card around my neck so I get better service. As I looked around I noticed that the ones wearing them got better service and fresh ground pepper on their salads. I'm not mad at all. I just tipped our waiter like was a Gold Card. The 11 oz filet was off the chain good though. Cudos to the chef...

    Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive. The kitchen was backed up and we waited longer than usual for our meals to be served but the waitress explained the situation and kept us updated. She did not hide from the fact of the delay and made sure we had fresh drinks and bread. The food was great when it arrived and we had a very enjoyable evening.

    Third time in six months we’ve had bad service. Ordered a margarita and my meal at the same time, waitress stopped by 10 minutes later and ask me what was the drink i ordered? The surf and turf came quickly but i never received my salad or ahi tuna. I had to tell the waitress and she surprisingly said “oh wow wonder why they done that” I went to cut my medium rare steak and it was medium well, so I informed the waitress. She brought me another steak(bigger) and i be damned if it wasnt well done! The manager said he was very dorry and hes having a oroblem filling his staff….I'm so sick of hearing that! Do a better job of hiring people and pay them what they’re worth! Said a former customer.

    To start with I love Ruth Chris but this time they had items on the menu that was not available for reasons unknown to us and was items we looked forward to getting. Then my wife ordered a drink and the salads came before the drink and that is unacceptable, the waitress was either overwhelmed with tables or just that slow and for the price we pay we expect a lot more and quite frankly never had a bad experience at any Ruth Chris until last night. We will never go back to that location.

    Ruth's Chris Steak House - Harrah's Cherokee Casino & HotelResponded on November 23, 2022JonT, hospitality is a source of great pride for our company and when a guest feels that he or she has not received the service that is the hallmark of the Ruth’s Chris name, we take those assertions seriously. We appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention and will work to ensure this doesn't happen again.

    Drink service was slow. They were out of first wine we ordered but took 15 minutes to tell us after we ordered it. Food was not hot- the steak plates were not sizzling like normal Ruth’s Chris experience. They were out of lettuce so no wedge salads. Overall disappointing based on a better experience prior in June.

    I ordered lamb chops, which is my go-to at Ruth’s Chris. When ordering, I asked for mint jelly, as this is my favorite with lamb chops. Ordered medium rare. My husband ordered a NY Strip, medium well. When they brought dinners out, they didn’t bring any mint jelly. “Oh, sorry. We’re out of mint jelly.” WHAT? Why wasn’t I told this when I ordered? I totally would have ordered something different, had I known that. My husband’s steak came out medium rare instead of medium well. He’s too nice to complain. But it too came out different than what was ordered. Both plates were very good, but wrong. It’s not an inexpensive restaurant. No adjustment to the bill. The manager came over and apologized. I guess we expected some type of compensation, since service has been great over the years.

    We had 7:00 reservations, we were seated in 5 minutes. Immediately after being seated Sutton, our waitress, came over to get our drink orders. Drinks came out fast and we ordered dinner, salad and soup came out in 15 minutes, we told the runner that it was fast and he thanked us for the compliment because he stated that they were under staffed and people complained every night. Dinner came out 10 minutes after we finished the first course. Food was good, service was great. I was concerned about eating at Ruth Chris again after reading some of the reviews but overall it was great.

    No need to promote business casual dress at this location as noted on the website). Wear what you want, pajamas, fine, golf attire with hat, no problem. If you arrive early for your reservation (we were a party of 2 that arrived 15 min early to a reservation), plan to stand outside the entrance at the "check-in" point. Per hostess / host the bar was "full", can't go inside . However, we noticed other "walk ups" say something and were able to access the bar. We understand "regulars" and their relationship with the personnel. Guess COVID changed the acceptable attire. Food excellent - service good
