We had dinner there over Family Weekend at UT with my daughter and her friends. Great food. Great service. The kids ate like it was the last supper. Everything was outstanding. Service was top draw. Can’t wait to go back.

My steak was delicious. However they were out of baked potatoes! On Friday night at 8:00! Reservations were for 7:30 but had to wait 20 minutes anyway. Three of us had the Lobster Bisque and it was mediocre at best. Not hot and only a few scant bites of lobster. Our server was helpful but busy. My sister and I were celebrating birthdays and we were surprised by a strawberry shortcake dessert with a candle and our names on each. Wasn’t much of a dessert but a nice thought. But as stated earlier, we all had delicious steaks - 3 filets and a ribeye. A side of Brussel Sprouts was delicious, but potatoes augraten was lukewarm and pretty tasteless. I really expected more for these prices especially.

Shannon is awesome. Table was ready on time. Service was immaculate! Drinks served immediately. Food orders taken quickly. Prisoner not available. Shannon remembered I had previously ordered the Hall Select Allomi Vineyard Napa Valley cab. Entrees and sides were at the table within 15 minutes. Steaks were grilled to perfection. Chocolate Duo dessert for our son was great.

Our waiter , Steven , did an excellent job! The wine prices are a little over the top and while the choices were good the number of choices was limited for a restaurant of this caliber.

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.

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.
