Service and food quality are amazing. The steak is absolutely melt-in-your-mouth tender and delicious. It's definitely one of it not my favorite place to eat. My only complaint is the size of the restaurant and availability of booths. There are only 3 booths in the dining area, and, even with a reservation, you could be waiting an hour or more before being seated if the booths are not vacated at the estimated time.

However, the food and service once seated are always top notch and make up for the wait.

The Caesar salads were perfect. The steaks (filets) were perfect. The creamed spinach and potatoes were delicious. Our waiter was attentive and prompt but not overbearing. I have never had a bad meal here.

Outstanding as always. The best part about the entire evening was when the waiter kept referring to our anniversary while he attended to us. Such a great steak and the atmosphere cannot be beat. Highly recommend to anyone looking for prime beef in Huntsville.

I want to thank the staff for accommodating my lady’s birthday. It was her first time eating at Ruth Chris. She was very pleased with the service Steve and his staff provided. They made it a warm and comfortable atmosphere, also arranged seating for our guests. Thanks we will be back soon.

Excellent dinner.
We were seated for a table of six at the entrance/exit of the kitchen. It was a bit busy and disrupting.
Waiter was excellent. Great recommendations for dinner course.

Had an excellent experience start to finish. Met at the curb by Kevin the valet who was funny and helpful. Donny at the bar made EXCELLENT drinks for us while we waited. Our primary waiter was Shaun (sp). Very helpful, knowledgeable, and attentive. Make an excellent wine suggestion based off our description of preferences that we absolutely loved. Checked on us regularly and obviously knew his business. Cedrick and Gabe (server and busser) also helped us out a lot. Then Keith, the floor manager, also tended to us quite a bit. (Sorry if I misspelled any names). Every one of these gentlemen were friendly, knew what they were talking about, were completely professional and made the dining experience very enjoyable. NOW, to talk about the food! We've dined at several different Ruth's Chis around the country and I can tell you this was one of the best experiences we have had. The steaks were phenomenal as always! Excellent (I keep using that word.....should say something!) cuts of meat that were cooked exactly as we asked. The sides were perfect as was our appetizer. I don't have a single negative thing to say about the food! If I had to say one somewhat negative thing about the experience overall, I would say I didn't like the chairs..... the back rest sat just a little too high for me. That was it! Everything else completely top notch!

Our Service was excellent. We had some of the best cocktails that we've had in a while. the atmosphere was perfectly quiet. Although, to be fair, we were dining during the national college football championship game. However, the food was cooked to perfection and we were greeted by name at the door. I couldn't recommend this restaurant more highly.

Have had dinner there twice in last month or so. First time not so bad. Wife enjoyed her salmon. I got the Petite filet. It was not tender at all.

Had dinner their Friday night. Wife ordered salmon again well done., it was like it had been cooked no more than five minutes. Almost raw. I ordered the barbecue shrimp appetiser as my meal and got the $30 shrimp with some grit cakes as I understand they were. Terrible pasty texture.

10 small shrimp and pasty cakes. $30. Shrimp obviously not fresh.

One of the managers came buy and ask about our meal. He did say we wouldn’ t be charged for the salmon.

Everything overpriced. $10 for a cup of corn, potatoes etc !!!!

Very disapointed.

Having eaten at very many Ruth’s Chris around the Southeast US, I can say this was the worst service I have experienced. Far below what one would expect from the chain. Primary wait staff seemed poorly trained and discourteous. Meals were mixed up and temperatures still incorrect. I know it was NYE and things can get hectic, but the reservation was made a few weeks ahead because I believed they would deliver a capable meal. The steak and sides were good, but not overwhelming. All in all just a poor performance that evening. Highly unexpected from Ruth’s Chris.

The food and overall experience ended up being nice. We had an issue upon arrival with the Happy Hour menu being available only in the bar area. After speaking with the manager to try and resolve the issue we were reseated in the bar area. After that fiasco, the server was fantastic and provided great service. With that being said this Ruth’s is not as customer focused as others I have visited.
