Overall the experience was very good. I was disappointed that they appear to have overbooked for Mother's Day. We arrived on time for our reservation but they were so overbooked that we weren't seated for 30 minutes. This meant we had to rush through our dinner to make an engagement we had for after dinner.

I took my Mom here for Mother's Day because she wanted a filet mignon. She enjoyed it and I had the whitefish which was good. Service was only fair, as it took a long time to place our order, and the waiter seemed too busy waiting on other guests that arrived long after we did. Probably not his fault as there were not enough waiters to take care of all the guests. I'll visit one more time to try a different fish.

The restaurant was a little small. Parking was difficult because of the space. The food is good enough and prices significant enough to warrant them having their own building, instead of being at the end of a mall parking lot. Overall though the food was good as was the service...Good experience.

Overall it was good... some things were great, some things were just ok. Minor things were just... meh.
The service was excellent! The atmosphere was nice.
I was with my mom, who doesn’t do alcohol so we just ordered tea. This girl was constantly filling our glasses. It was impressive.
The bread? Meh... worthless calories. Just leave it off the table next time or step it up.
I got a classic meal that included a starter, entree, 1 side, and dessert.
The lobster bisque was good. The cheese potato stack... amazing.
Here’s my 1 complaint, and this is for all Steakhouse’s. Please stop being dancy and stop serving my medium rare steak on a 500° plate. By the time I’m a few bites in the perfectly cooked steak becomes over cooked. Why is this done? Just stop.
Then... the strawberry shortcake that cake with the meal. It sure looked nice. But...... was it frozen? Or just, I don’t know... old? Something less than average about it. I was expecting great and I feel like I get better stuff at casual dining.
Again, overall the dining experience was nice... better than average for a steakhouse but maybe not the best.

This was a special evening for me as it was a big thank you to my girl friend for organizing a surprise Birthday Party for me recently.
I must say from my point of view in all aspects it more than lived up to my expectations.
My girl friend was absolutely delighted and insists we visit you again,
Thank you to All your Staff

My wife and I are both chefs and after cooking all day we enjoy going out and having a nice meal. We frequent Ruth Chris but this time I hate to say the food was less than we anticipated. Ordered the cowboy rib eye. Very fatty and disappointing. The salad heirloom was missing ingredients. The meal just did not have the same Ruth Chris flare we were used too. Bummed. The service was spot on and we do appreciate good service. Maybe next time

As usual food and service was excellent. Our waiter was Carter . He was attentive to us without being "hovering". We had a 6:00 reversation and hoped to be in the main dining room, where we usually are seated, but we're seated in secondary dining room next to a large group of student diners. That room was quite noisy. Overall, our experience was very good and we look forward to visiting again soon. Thanks again to Carter....

I hadn't been to a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for over 25 years, I will not be waiting so long to go again!! The food was absolutely delicious. We ordered the Ahi appetizer, it was like butter, just melted in your mouth! Then we ordered the filet mignon and again it melted in your mouth. So good. Can't wait to go back!

This is our go-to restaurant for celebrations. We got engaged here years ago, and returned for my husband’s birthday this week. It was a little risky dining here with a 3.5 year old, but everyone was very accommodating and we didn’t stand out. They even provided us with a high-chair and kids’ menu. Ah, how life has changed!

This is my go-to place when I want a perfect steak. I’ve never been disappointed. I wish my budget allowed me to eat more frequently at Ruth’s Chris’. Some day I might order something other than meat, but I can cook chicken at home.

Haven't been to Ruth's Chris in 20 years but have cycled through their main competition due to location and thought it time to revisit RC. My ceasar salad, ribeye steak, wine and crème brulee were all outstanding. The blue cheese crusted roasted vegetables were disappointing, swimming in oil or butter, overly salty and skimpy blue cheese crust -- never ordered this dish before, won't order it again. The restaurant was very quiet though it filled up eventually. I dined alone but could faintly make-out conversations of neighboring tables so if I had a dinner companion we certainly could have conversed easily. Noisy dining rooms is a reason I won't go back to one of RC's competitors where I had to shout to converse with the person across the table. My waiter was also outstanding, probably the best I've had in decades. He as very helpful in explaining the options and selecting wine, friendly, charming but not obtrusive.
