I was shocked and disappointed at the experience we had tonight at this establishment. Let me start off by saying my husband and I frequent this location and are very familiar with the service and overall ambiance of this restaurant.
As soon as we sat down I knew this would be different. Our plates and cutlery were dirty. Visible food on both. The floor was nasty (pictures attached). We told our waitress and was moved to a different table.
The food was room temp at best (aside from the steak and pork chops) the Mac and cheese, gumbo (which lacked shrimp and was very very different from the pre-pandemic gumbo we always get) and bbq shrimp were all on the cold side.
We ordered 2 Pina coladas one with alcohol and one without and were charged $14 each although one didn't have alcohol. I thought that was strange.
The waitress was nice and very apologetic and offered a free desert and appetizer but the damage had already been done. I'm so surprised and taken aback by what we experienced tonight. Unfortunately we are going to take a long break from this location. I hope they make some changes soon.

Overall the food was what you would expect from Ruth’s Chris; however, the creamed spinach had an off flavor (as if it was starting to go bad) and was very salty. We told the waiter but it don’t get removed from the check which was disappointing. The steak was great and the waiter was attentive. I’ll eat at Ruth’s Chris again but probably not in Huntsville location.

RC was the last restaurant in 2020 that I was in. My visit yesterday was the first meal inside since 2020. A well done steak does not mean burnt on the first and second try. Several of the waiters remember me. It is my place to go. I just hate everyone knew I would only go to RC and it was truly a disappointment. No flavor in the Lobster. The salad was the best. Too much money for a salad. Please bring all the old cooks or get Terrance from Longhorn he can cook a steak and lamb chops without burning.

The food was good but not worth the price. We have always wanted to try this restaurant and now we can say we have. We have had a steak that is better at other restaurants for half the price. Our waiter was not very personable. He may have returned to our table twice other than to leave the check. Unless you just want to spend ALOT of extra money for the same steak that you can get elsewhere then I would not recommend.

Just being mindful that many businesses are short staffed and will have longer wait times, which was the only downfall I experienced.

My wife had the Chilean Seabass... nothing special and a little fishy... I had a Fillet I asked for a medium it came rare and 1/4 of it was full of gristle could not eat.. The best thing of the night was I had grilled shrimp added to my fillet and the shrimp for excellent. Overall it was an average dinner extremely overpriced for what you got. Our server was a very nice young man who did an excellent job

When we arrived nobody came out to tell us they had quit valet parking. It was POURING down rain and 4 people were standing behind the desk when we came in. They need a sign outside or something informing guests of that. The food just isn't as good as it used to be. There's other steak houses in town that are much better. If we're going to spend this amount of money, we will take our money elsewhere.

Great celebration for Mother’s Day. Make sure you get Cedric or Rida as a server when you go. Go with the BBQ shrimp, chopped salad, and filet.

Food was absolutely outstanding - stuffed mushrooms, salad with blue cheese dressing, filets, Brussel sprouts, bread pudding.

Overpriced but incredibly delicious.

Atmosphere was very disappointing- lots of tables in a big room. Decor was ok - nothing memorable. No privacy.

This was the first time I've ever sent my entire meal back. My petit filet, lobster tail and grilled asparagus were all underdone. I couldn't believe it. Especially for the price. At least my server and the restaurant manager were friendly, helpful and my meal was taken off the bill. The manager even comped me a dessert. He was super! Unfortunately, I will probably never go back there. I was informed that the kitchen was in between chefs. That should never happen. I worked in the restaurant profession for 25+ years so I know the business.

Our meal overall was very good and we always enjoy our experience at Ruth’s Chris. Our server and all services were excellent. I only Dow rated slightly because my very favorite side dish, the creamed spinach, wasn’t up to par this time. It was runny and tasteless and not at all like the usual. Everything else, from the salad and crab cakes to dessert was great.

We were seated in a booth. The light fixtures that were on the wall above the booth were horribly dirty. I doubt that they have been cleaned since they moved into this location.

The steak was decent but the meal was overpriced. Bread was hard, broccoli was undercooked and salmon tasted like anything you would receive from A chain restaurant. Save yourself the money and go to a less expensive steakhouse and you won’t feel taken advantage of.

For a fine dining establishment, the ambience was great, but the staff was gossiping about some rather poor things quite loudly right next to our table. The staff seemed like they worked at a basic steakhouse. They sort of lacked the skills and little things that separate $20/dish restaurants from +$50/dish fine dining. That being said, the steaks and lamb were great, but I felt a lack of diversity in ingredients or compliments to the dish that could help improve appeal. The shrimp was basic as well with butter and garlic. Just my opinion. Overall, it was a good time. Expect to spend a couple of hundred.
