Awesome food, service and ambiance. There is no place in this part of WNC that has the steaks that Ruth Chris's serves. And the Caesar salad was absolutely delicious! We had to take the French fries home (one order) because there were so many--and the spices they add to them are fabulous.

Steak was sent back for not being cooked correctly, also was to be Blue Cheese encrusted which it was not. Just gave, ate the steak and left. Would have been better off throwing a stark on the grill in my backyard

My experience at this restaurant was totally excellent!!!! Appetizer was great, The steak was superb!!!!! I don't remember when I had a steak this flavorful and tender and juicy!!!!!! The asparagus and mashed potatoes sooo good with the steak... My water glass was always being topped off.. Excellent service all around... I thought it was a tad ''dark'' though??? But with the eating I was doing, didn't really notice it much.. Thanks so much had a great time..

We enjoyed our dinner overall. The staff went over and above to serve us. We had an issue with the terminology of what a lamb chop is expecting loin chops and got rib chops and we think that should be made clear on the menu since steak houses typical serve lamb loin chops and if it’s a rib chop, typically stated as rack of lamb or rib chops. We were really wanting the little T-bone loin chops offering both the tenderloin and strip side which I think are tastier and juicy. But, we do understand the issue. The manager discussed it politely and made sure we had a nice dinner. I am a restauranteur who has been in the meat purveying business, so maybe a little picky. Overall, Cherokee and Harrah’s are lucky to have Ruth Chris in their Casino.

Not happy with service.
We were seated fairly quick as we arrived a few minutes before our reservation. Our server arrived soon after and took our drink order. Drinks arrive ok and we place our order. After about 15 minutes an appetizer was delivered to our table and was not out order. After a few minutes our server informed us the kitchen had lost our order and the appetizer was delivered to wrong table. He said he would handle problem and get us on track. A bit later he stopped by to inform us that we should be receiving our appetizer soon. ( I agree, we should already have it).
20 minutes later we receive our appetizer and was told everything is back on track and they would not charge for the appetizer.
15 minutes later we get our salad. This is not back on track in my book.
We realized back on track meant they started our order all over and they were on schedule. I would think They would have advanced our order as we were already here an hour and no meal yet.
Meal arrived short time later and the steak was awesome. Fries were nothing to speak of, just ok.
We were here two weeks ago and came back because of great service.
This trip was very disappointing due to poor service and lack of concern over error.

The service we received from Jessica was outstanding. She is a great waitress and pays close attention to her tables. We got the seafood tower and it wasn’t as good as it normally is. The portion was a lot smaller especially the crab leg portion of the tower.

This was our first experience at Ruth's Chris and it was delicious. My wife and I both got one of the 3 course specials. My wife had the shrimp and filet combo and both were outstanding. I had the 11 ounce filet and it may have been one of the best steaks I have ever had. The sides were great also, everything served hot and fresh. Service was very attentive without being over bearing. It is an expensive meal but great for a splurge.
Would definitely go back.

I always enjoy my visits to a Ruth Chris restaurant. The atmosphere/ambiance is always just right. It makes me feel so good just being there. I generally go on my birthday because I consider my visit a special occasion. The service is very, very good. The waiters and waitress are so attentive and friendly. They are constantly checking to make sure you have what you need. They are very friendly and seem generally interested in my well being. Most of all, I like the food. The steaks are always so good and cooked to perfection. This will always be one of my favorite restaurants. I particularly like the Cheerokee, North Carolina location - it's the greatest...

The hostess area was smoky because of the casino. It would be nice if there was a waiting area inside where we could not smell the smoke. The steaks were not as tender and tasty as other Ruth’s Chris restaurants where we have dined. The service was friendly and on point.
