This was a lunch buffet prior to the Colts game. There are new seats located by the restroom, which is a very busy area with a lot of people walking by. it's louder than normal. The service was less than typical and our drink service was below par.

18th Wedding anniversary would have been a little more romantic if we had been seated in a booth instead of in the middle of the room. There was booth seating available and the restaurant wasn't crowded.

Ruths Chris is just not like it used to be. At this price point it is all in the details, and they just were not there. Little things, like spotted glasses, forgetting a drink order, steak cooked wrong temperature. I expect that at Outback. But, it was not my money being spent, and my dogs enjoyed the leftovers.

We asked for bread 4 times before it was actually brought to our table. Alcoholic beverages did not have much alcohol. I ordered 2 long island iced teas and normally I can't finish one. It was like drinking a Coke. Our guest ordered a gin and tonic and said it was mostly tonic.

Great brunch before Colt's game. Service was poor. we were almost finished with our brunch before we were served our drinks. Waitress was more concerned about setting empty tables for lunch crowd.

My wife and I are celebrating our 18th anniversary and this was the first time we had ever been to one of these restaurants. The food was absolutely amazing they were probably the two best steaks we had ever had. And we would highly recommend the lobster mac and cheese.

Our waiter Pat was very disappointing. I was apart of a party of 6 and every one of us are fine dining servers so we are very aware of the standards of service. Pat never greeted us with a hi or his name or anything, he never told us any features, did not card us and we're only 27, never checked back on us after we had our food, and the one time he chose to speak to us he purposely interrupted the birthday girls toast while she was in tears. Food was good but service was a disaster and upsetting because he made us feel as if we were inconveniencing him for even being there. On a lighter note, the server assistant Lyndon was absolutely amazing. He is a prime example of how a server should interact with their guests. He was always present, crumbed our table, kept our waters full, pre bussed our table, and was very personable with us. I think pat should be reminded that every table should be treated the same, whether they look as if they're millionaires or not.

Thank you to Amy for great service. She wasn't pushy and realized we needed time to visit before selecting something for dinner. The filets were cooked to our liking. The only complaint is I purposely asked to be seated away from the kitchen and got a table right by it.

Music was too loud, to enjoy a business meal. Had we been sat away from the bar, maybe our noise level would have been better. The food was amazing. Had the par deax meal combination for 49.95, which included an appetizer, side, entree and dessert. Great value. I had the 6oz filet w/2shrimp, Caesar salad, succotash and apple "pie" ala mode. Great value.

When I booked the reservation it didn't say that Sunday was a brunch buffet... Was very disappointed thought it was menu only.. on open table it didn't say a buffet would have never done that.. The buffet food was just average at best.. Was the 1st and last time for that experience.. Maybe on Sunday before a 1p game maybe could have a small menu... Even the Bloody Mary was awful!! Just wasn't worth the money we paid for it! Won't be back for brunch unless something changes and a small menu is available!!!

It's one of our best places to celebrate special occasions . Our visit was for our granddaughter's 8th birthday. We have three granddaughters and this is the place they all want to have their birthday dinner celebration. Two of my GD had fried shrimp and fries and the shrimp were large and to die for. The other GD had fried chicken tenders and fries and a Shirley Temple. The wife and I always split a chopped salad and have the small filet with a side of mushrooms. Words can't justify how good the steak, chopped salad and mushrooms taste. This restaurant is they place to go in Indianapolis 👍

We went to Ruth's Chris for dinner following our wedding. We were seated next to a party of 12 to 14 young men who were having a "really good" tine. As our server was going over the menu he realized just how loud the party next to us was. He then offered to move us to a more quiet area even though it was not in his area.
