    My food was hot but my companion’s food was barely warm. Steak and potato had butter on it that couldn’t melt because of it being not hot enough. Food came out an hour and a half after ordering. Only compensation was a $4 side upgrade was taken off, LOL

    We'd sat for almost 10 min when our waitress finally arrived, we'd just called our young son to say goodnight. We let her know what we were doing and asked her to come back in a couple min. She was sweet and smiled knowingly, however we quickly got off the phone only to sit there for nearly 15 min waiting/wondering if she'd ever come back. Then finally a new waiter came and said he said he was our new waiter. We ordered the chefs meal that included a "starter", (2 salad choices and a lobster bisque). My husband ordered the ceaser salad, I the Bisque, we both ordered the 6oz filet w/lobster tail and 2 sides along with a glass of wine each. At LEAST 15 min went by before we FINALLY got our wine! Then another 15 min for our starters! I took 1 bite of my bisque- it was Luke warm & had the worst flavor. Our waiter came back. I told him how my bisque was warm-ish, not hot and flavor was really strange. He offered to replace I said that was fine and accepted the Caesar. It took another 15 minutes for my salad to arrive! When I was nearly done with the salad the waiter came back and said he'd get our meals out right away. Waited another 15 min to receive our meals. Everything was taking forever. The filet and the lobster tail were very good and cooked perfectly/ very tasty but served on a tiny plate leaving absolutely no room for the sides on the plate- rather strange.We were celebrating my husband's birthday but at that point with sitting there for so long we said we would take it to go and asked the waiter for a candle & utensils to go. Overall we arrived there just before 9 PM for our meal and left at 10:30 PM. It took far too long to receive our food and far too long to receive any service. So overall our experience was really not really not good.

    My wife ordered her filet mignon medium and it came out perfectly. I ordered my prime grade ribeye medium and it came out with a heavy char on the outside and nearly well done. Fortunately, the manager saw it and asked if i wanted it and my lukewarm mashed potatoes replaced. I told him I ate part of my wife’s steak and was good. He took it off our bill. The cheesecake and crème brûlée were outstanding. Couldn’t ask for a better dessert.

    Waiter, Ian, was very professional & service was spot on. I planned dinner there for my mom’s 80th birthday. The only con about dinner is that the staff only said happy birthday to her. I wasn’t expecting singing, but no offer for a free cheesecake. The table next to us was offered a free cheesecake as they were celebrating an anniversary!

    We went 6/26 for my birthday meal. We frequent Ruth Chris in South Carolina & had been to this location once before but our experience last night was terrible. I got my filet medium and it was well done and after it was on the hot plate for 4 minutes it was not edible. Could not even chew it. Generally, they bring a medium steak out medium rare and then it finishes up and is perfect after being on the plate. The Brussel sprouts were undercooked and didn’t have any honey butter on them. My dad never got his salad. The first manager was like “wow sorry” and the second at the end of the meal offered to bring me a new steak but after waiting over an hour for food I just wanted to leave. They took $30 off our bill which we appreciated but $250 for a birthday meal I couldn’t eat was not worth it. I am not one to complain but this was the worst steak of my life and I get filet at every restaurant I go to. If you’re at Harrahs and want steak just get the one at Brio’s (the Italian place) it was better which says a lot. Also, my favorite part about a Ruth Chris birthday is they write in chocolate on your dessert plate. They did this for two other tables but not for me. Maybe next year at a different location.

    During my ladies trip to the area, we chose to eat out one for one special meal. And that is what we got at Ruth’s Chris. The service was great for everyone was quite attentive. The food was great and the temperature of the food was perfect and hot upon arrival. Our table was set up perfect. Great position in the restaurant for our party of seven.

    Food and atmosphere were great. I did notice one thing that was an eyesore. Our salad plates were cleared by a young lady and a few feet from the table a fork fell from one of the plates. Her hands were full and she asked a server that was walking by empty handed if they would reach down and grab that for her. The reply was YES and kept on going. The young lade carrying the dishes had to go back in the back and come back and pick the item up. Its not a huge deal but it was very noticeable to me.

    The last three times we’ve been there, they didn’t have French fries. First two times, a broken potato cutter, and this time they were just “out” of fries. How can an establishment of this quality have this issues for 2 months+? Steak sent back last time due to not being cooked long enough, and 2 of the steaks this time were cooked incorrect. When you pay these prices, you expect quality and satisfaction. The food that we had was delicious, once corrected, but would have been better if we could have ordered our first choice and not had to wait to recook steaks. That is not the norm, so will definitely return, unless it becomes their standard.

    Every time we go to this particular location, it’s always something. This time the ran out of Caesar dressing & it took an hour to make more. They problem is that’s all I wanted this time with some spicy shrimp, which was cook too long.

    Reservation was on time. Once seated, service was a bit slow. Steaks was one of the most tender and delicious I have had. I had a set price meal of Caesar salad, fillet with shrimp, whipped potatoes, and a strawberry cheese cake. Absolutely wonderful. Will surely go back when up that way again.

    All my food was not brought at same time. I am ocd eater and want bite of steak, mushrooms and potato on each fork full. Runner threw server right under the bus by saying she did not input them on order. By the time they came steak was cooking on plate m a king it done than I wanted. Did not complain as if steak was recooked sides would be cold. Plate was very messy and should have been cleaned up before serving. All the food was good and manager did check on us and did comp the mushrooms. Entire restaurant seemed disorganized though. Had reservation for weeks in advance and was really looking forward to an outstanding meal but was only good.

    Service was poor. Plates were not taken off the table after they were used. You used a bread plate for the entire meal. You put the sides on it after you ate your bread. A jug of water was left at the table and everything was self serve. The only thing the waitress did was take our order and bring the jug of water. The sides were terrible and not seasoned. Bland spinach and garlic mashed with no salt or garlic. Steak was improperly cooked. We sliced the meat and let it cook on the hot plates to the proper way ordered. We were disappointed and have no interest in eating there again. I had lunch the next day at a much less expensive restaurant and tipped the waitress $100 for her great service on a $50 lunch. It seemed as if Ruth’s Chris felt they were doing us a favor by letting us eat there. I have no problem paying more money for a better product. This wasn’t it. What I received was average food at best and below average service.
