Took my husband for his birthday dinner and it did not disappoint. The shrimp cocktail was fresh and amazing. Loved the lobster bisque and ribeye. The steak is served with a butter topping. The service was amazing. They included a birthday desert and table confetti. The cocktail were also delicious. The sides are extra but the lobster Mac and cheese was delicious too. We would go back!

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary here. I had mentioned it was a special occasion. The table was decorated with hearts and roses. We had glasses of Proseco. We ordered the Cowboy bone in bone in ribeye.
Side of sweet potato casserole and grilled asparagus
and split everything. The steak was medium rare as requested. Somewhat thinner cut than the last time.
Meat was juicy and flavorful. Grilled Asparagus served with hollindaise sauce on side. Very fresh & al dente.
They served a chocolate fondant dessert. It so rich we brought the majority home. Also brought the steak bone 🦴 for my dog. We ALWAYS have a lovely experience at Ruth Chris. Shoutout to Melanie and the staff for A-1 service.

Relevant to The usual elegant and enjoyable service of Ruth Chris, I have to say our group was disappointed. Despite the excuse of COVID, we are avid restaurant goers and we have been to pretty much all of the available restaurants in area. While limited menu is Normal nowadays, each restaurant has come up with a unique way of entertaining, and increasing level of service. Unfortunately, Ruth Chris did not rise to the challenge.

For being out on the sidewalk and parking lot the noise was minimal, service was comparable to inside dining pre-COVID which is always amazing, and we were glad they let us bring our own bottle of wine from home. (We have a growing collection we haven’t been able to utilize due to COVID). I’ve been to a lot of Ruth’s Chris locations and the taste and flavor is always consistent. They have minimal outdoor seating so we made a reservation two weeks out for our preferred dining time.

With the world the way it is now, you expect hiccups to happen especially with outdoor dining. Ruth's Chris was the exemption. I could only get a late evening reservation and was worried since it would be close to when the restaurant closes, but they did not rush us at all. There were only a few tables out to seat us, (although they were starting to take empty ones inside) so a reservation is KEY. The service and food did not lack whatsoever. Everything was perfect. I wasn't expecting anything less, but I was blown away given how other restaurants are struggling.

My wife's fillet steak and potato were great. My sides, broccoli and asparagus were under cooked.
I asked the server for food recommendations since I am vegan and got zero response. After the long quite awkward moment, I said never mind I'll figure it out. Server never checked in to see how the food was. Overall not the level of service or food that one expects from a Ruth Chris.

Food is always great. I was a little disappointed that we had to pour our own wine all night. We brought in a really nice bottle but my husband and I took turns pouring for each other. That is unacceptable in a nice restaurant in my opinion

I gave outstanding to all. Due to COVID restrictions, we had to eat outside and I included ambience as outstanding because I thought they did an excellent job of preparing the site in spite of the difficulties they faced. Safety tip - be aware of the curb in part of the seating area especially if you are backing up to take pictures! The weather was perfect for a 4:45 pm reservation.

Due to Covid, we were seated outside right next to the parking spaces where people could back up and have their mufflers going in our face. There was no ambience. The food was OK.

We went for my son’s graduation from college and had a great experience as usual. Food and service were great and everything tasted as good as I would expect. In my opinion, the best filet of any steakhouse. I recommend the blue cheese crust addition for the steak but ask for it on the side (recommended by our server) and you can add it to anything you want.

The food is amazing. We made a reservation and got the worst seat in the house though. Asked to move and they wouldn't accommodate. I get that they are operating at a reduced capacity, so it may be a fluke, but it was annoying to say the least.

It was my first date with my new girlfriend as my girlfriend. And the service was amazing I got filet and shrimp the stake was very good. But the shrimp was nothing special. She got her stake with lobster which was way better. Really enjoyed it!

Mainly it was the server he was rude as all get out and we had to keep asking for the things we needed on top of that we had to wait awhile for our order to even be took and he had to be asked to refill our drinks. I was starting to fell like our waiter didn’t like us. But what I didn’t like was how he was always reaching over us and forget stuff. He definitely was not practicing social distancing whatsoever and how do I know his hands are clean or dirty with touching all of our silverware not even giving me a straw for my drink.I am very disappointed in this restaurant I went there for mine and my husband anniversary and it was ruined by the very poor service and on top of that the price I had to pay when the macaroni was called. I will say the stake was good but other then that it was the worst service I have ever got at a nice stake house
