    This particular location was not up to the standards of Ruth Chris I have dined at in around the Atlanta area for many years. There were delays in service and absolutely no attentiveness to clearing plates/glasses. We were even given the check with no attempt to remove finished plates from the table for which all we were finished eating. Two of us had filet and shrimp, and the shrimp were served at room temperature. Frankly from a Ruth Chris restaurant I expected much more.

    Our personal server was great and attentive! However, another employee not sure their exact role was carrying a tray full of dishes. I really didn’t get the image if he was bussing a table or delivering drinks to others. He almost lost the whole tray directly behind my husband spilling drinks near him and ultimately on his back. His chair was wet, his shirt was wet. While this particular employee ultimately offered extra napkins and such that was the extent of it. No manager ever came to check on my husband or any of us after that. I don’t know that our server was even aware it had happened or she may have told someone. There were multiple employees around when it happened because they helped with the tray but none of them checked on my husband. While it wasn’t our server’s fault, I tipped her well because she treated us well. However, I am pretty disappointed on how the restaurant handled or actually didn’t handle this situation at all. I don’t like to make a big scene and was thankful my husband kept his cool even though he had every right to be very upset. I hope someone reads this and addresses management on how things like this should be handled when the very patrons keeping them in business are affected.

    The service is always good, but the food, not so much. This location is at Harrah's Cherokee Casino in NC and we have tried it several times, always hoping it will be great. It does not carry the same quality of other locations we have been to in cities. There are no other "high end" restaurants in the area, so if you are looking for a steakhouse for a "fancy dinner", this is your option in Cherokee, and it will fit that purpose. That said, the food is decent, but not great, and the prices are high for what you get. I understand that they are in a rural area, and they have a captive audience in the casino with tourists, etc. but for the price and from the brand I expect a bit better.

    Disgusting amount of blue cheese on the salad. My steak was hammered and my husbands was raw. Didn’t tell us that the side I ordered was unavailable until after they delivered the steaks. Left without eating and our evening was ruined.

It was my husbands birthday so they gave us a desert with a candle on it with happy birthday spelled out on the plate! Perfect ending to our night! We had shrimp cocktail, lamb chops, my strip, mashed potatoes and creamed spinach! Everything was Yummy!

    My steak was only seared on one side and undercooked, the person I was dining with had to send his steak back 3 times and it was still very undercooked. I requested creamy horseradish and it never arrived. Very disappointed with this dining experience.

    Ruth Cris at Cherokee has gone down in their food, they have much smaller plates now, bowl for the caesar salad, which is not that nice, small plates for the entree so one could not put the potatoes or vegetables on the plate, and seems not elegant which Ruth Cris used to be. The calamari was so different, small small pieces on a small plate overloaded with red pepper pieces.The asparagus was cold, we ordered extra bread pieces for the dip which came way after the salads were through. The stake not cooked to the asked level of doneness. All in all I felt the food in particular was really diminished by the plate size. Very disappointing, and we have eaten their for many years, so i am aware of how it used to be. Not nice enough for the cost!!

    Great meal, as usual! Day one, seated at bar; Day two, reservation for four (only me, plus one showed). I chose Ruth Classic three course meal both nights. Forgot dessert course on meal at the bar, but decided to go back and ask for (with itemized receipt). I was not hassled, and got a togo bag with cheesecake. Delicious! Way better than losing my money at the slots!!

    Wait staff was not good. Never came back to table. Left empty wine glasses on after saying she would be back right to pick them. No drink refills. I let the waiter know my lettuce was brown and I couldn’t eat it. She then dropped the bill off with the salad still on the bill. She never came back to get the payment for the bill. I had run someone else down to pay the bill. The manager showed up to take the card for the bill and apologized. Then waiter showed up when she saw him with us. Just bad service.

    Usually, it's very awesome... the salad was not up to the high standard of Ruth's Chris, brown iceburg and not romain also very heavily dressed. Our drinks took forever and were not in martini glasses? Either round we ordered. The steak was very tasty but not the medium rare as ordered. Not sure if it was an off day or new staff but we'll try again next time.

    First of all, this was our fourth time to dine at Ruth Chris in Cherokee North Carolina. We had reservations and we were seated almost right on time. The staff was very friendly and efficient on getting us seated. Service was outstanding as always. Our waitress was very attentive to our needs during our visit. The food was very good, and served as ordered. I highly recommend Ruth Chris in Cherokee North Carolina.

    For a $70 steak, I have never been so dissatisfied. The ribeye that my husband ordered was a giant slab of gristle and maybe only a quarter of it was edible. My steak was okay, but lacked the juiciness that I would expect from a well-renowned steakhouse. I’ve personally had better steaks from lower priced chain steakhouses. The sides, salad, and dessert were very good, but the fact that the steaks were well below subpar, I will personally not go back.
