Request a table or booth with a view of the river. I didn't but asked when I arrived and the host made it happen. Really appreciated that. Everything, especially the hospitality, was outstanding!

Great steaks that are cooked perfectly and served sizzling on hot plates. This allows steaks to remain perfect temperature for the full meal. The side dishes are great especially the lobster Mac and cheese. Wine selection is extensive.

Best steak I’ve ever had. Was very pricey, but if you’ve got the money it’s well worth it

We had a very good meal! Just a couple of little things like at 7:30 they were out of Au Gratin Potatoes? Lastly we got a $150 bottle of Gaja wine that was extremely too hot. We were able to get it chilled table side , but it was so warm it took quite a while to chill. Wine should be served at the perfect temp! We always love Ruth Chris and look forward to coming back! I hate to be picky but when I’m paying $800 for a meal I expect the Best!

Our waiter, Chris, was all around great with service. My wife and I visited on our first anniversary and Ruth’s did not disappoint. We started off with some cocktails recommend by Chris, a small seafood tower, which could feed a family of four, which had some of the best shrimp and lobster we’ve had in a while. 10/10 would recommend

It was excellent as Ruth’s Chris always is. Even got to try some dishes I normally would not, because we had a large group with vegan and non-meat eating people. This place is never cheap, but we did see in small print on page two a prix fixe menu that was fairly affordable. And then they had decent prices for upgrading any item on that menu as well.
This place is well worth of the money when you really want top-notch dining

We are from New Orleans and have dined at the original restaurant for many years until it closed because of Hurricane Katrina. This is our first time at the Knoxville venue. The food, service, ambience and wonderful river view made for a fabulous experience.

Ruth's Chris is a place we go very intermittently. We go to celebrate or if we get a coupon. We go because they tend to have quality steak and usually because the service and ambiance is conducive to making on feel special and a little pampered. The one thing I was definitely disappointed in was where we were seated. I made reservations through this service--OpenTable--and in doing so asked if we could be seated with a view of the water. As we had a reservation at 5:30, I thought it was a reasonable request. Turned out that I had a view of a brick wall and unattractive landscaping and my husband had a sliver of a view of the water. Not at all what I had wanted or what we could have been given. I understand that we weren't the only ones dining that night but we had made the effort to put in for a reservation, and an early one at that.

The food was not up to par. The vegetarian Napoleon was awful. The to go lobster bisque was about 1/3 of the normal serving. Fruit flies kept getting into the wine and the salad.

I have dined at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Atlanta, Nashville, New Orleans, and Memphis: My experience at the Knoxville location was as good or better than any of the other experiences. Excellent in every way. The food, service, and atmosphere as as expected.

Lovely! We are frequent fliers to Ruth’s Chris all around the county. This place was nice but could use a decor update. Also, get some beer on tap! We celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary and they were wonderful and the food, as always, was perfect. The only thing was we felt like the waitress was circling us like a shark. This place is pretty wide open so you can see everyone. I like it when there are more cozy nooks so it doesn’t feel you’re being watched by the staff. I know they do this for service but I don’t like to feel it. Overall it was fantastic and I’m really nitpicking. We would recommend to anyone and keep going ourselves.

If there's only 2 groups of black people in the whole building please do not Set them side-by-side. It was my birthday and they set us beside a group of people who also were having a birthday They received a plate with Happy Birthday writing in chocolate with cake They did not do that for me.
