    Everything was slower due to understaffing. They are having the same problems the rest of the country is facing. Our waiter was great at letting us know of the progress being made. The food is Devine. Would most definitely eat there again. Perfection takes time.

    The server was good but the food was sub par. We have been to other Ruth Chris restaurants and was looking forward to dinner. The steak was tough and overcooked, the creamed spinach was flavorless. At the end of the meal they offered me a birthday dessert and we assumed it was a nice gesture only to find they charged us for it. We typically do not order desserts and would not have ordered. We won’t be back to this location.

    Steak was very salty as well as the lobster that was also dry, tough and crunchy. Cheesecake was great! But overall it’s the last time I will eat there. Sorry. You asked.

    This was our 4th trip to RC and our 1sr bad experience. The ambiance was great! We knew going into it that they were short staffed so we took that into consideration. However, at 10:30pm we were only 1 of 3 tables left in the dining room. We were given our bills at 10:24pm and she did not return to pick them up until after 11pm. We never saw her between these times. The staff was doing their tips and cleaning for the night. The steaks were very below average with no flavor. This is very out of character for our experiences at RC. The mashed potatoes were bland and cold. Again, very out of character from our past experiences here. We were very disappointed in our food for the price we paid. The support staff was exceptional, friendly and attentive. I answered the question below based on our last experience here.

    We enjoy Ruth Chris…BUT our recent experience was not acceptable. We ordered our steaks cooked medium, they were served rare. Sent back for recook…now they are well done. New steaks were ordered and served this time, more rare than the first. No we did not eat them. More is expected At this level of dining $$$$$.

    Usually great, this time wasnt as good. Steak wasnt cooked to proper temperature (overcooked). Took a very long time to receive main course as manager said the first ribeye did not look good, so she had a new one prepared. But the second one was overdone. They offered free desert, but my meal came with a small desert anyway. The ribeye should have been comped, since I didnt eat it. Its not about the money as I am seven star, I just expected great service as always.

    We have dined at Ruth's Chris many times but this time was the top on our list. The area we sat in as well as the food was top notch. Two of us got the Sea Bass and the others got the Steak and Shrimp and everything was delicious! Thanks for celebrating my husband's birthday with class and style!

    We eat here often when we come to Cherokee. We typically have even better service than food. That was not the case this time. Took forever at 11pm to get sat even with numerous tables open. After getting a table it was a long time before we were treated and even longer to get a drink. We considered leaving. Not sure the issue but it was very frustrating.

    Overall the food was good at this location, but not quite up to par with our last two visits there. Flavor-wise exceptional as always, but my wife's lamb chops were undercooked and had to be sent back for additional cooking. In addition, her side of brussel sprouts were a bit undercooked and difficult to chew because of that. Cocktails and desserts were great.

    For a steakhouse with his reputation, my file was overdone. As soon as it came out I knew it was going to be overdone because it was old chart on the outside. They did take it back and bring me out another file which was done OK, not exactly medium rare the way I like it. My husbands to fillet medallions which was supposed to be medium rare we’re completely well done. This is the second visit to Ruth’s Chris at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino and we will not go back again.

    as always we can not find anything wrong with our experience with Ruth's Chris steak house from the happy birthday sprinkles on the white table cloth to the distinct touch of class with the Manhattan adding a touch of southern comfort to the bourbon and vermouth all the way to the most delicious steak ever we ordered a bone in New York strip and filet with shrimp. A truly happy birthday celebration thank you
