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.

I have been a patron of Ruth’s Chris for MANY MANY years - but alas it seems to have fallen by the chain restaurant wayside. The food quality was greatly diminished - one steak had to be sent back for being WAY over cooked, one was WAY undercooked. The salads and sides were not as good as in the past. Overall, for the very large price tag, I was very disappointed and will mark this off my list in lieu of smaller privately owned bistros which, thankfully, Knoxville now has!

We tried to order one of the specials which was lobster. They said we had to order 1-2 days in advance in order to have it ready.
Who knows to order one to two days in advance of a meal?
Then we tried to order cream spinach. They said they had spinach and could cause sauté it but they couldn’t cream it.
We were wondering why they didn’t send someone to the store to get Parmesan and cream?

Most unusual and disappointing meal we’ve had in a long time.

The waitress was rude and difficult at first because a 13 year old in the group wanted a hamburger. The manager came out and handled the problem and from then forward the waitress was fine but the initial problem somewhat ruined the occasion. I dined at another fine restaurant in the area 5 days earlier and there was no comparison. Although both meals were expensive, the other restaurant was pleasant while this meal at Ruth’s Chris makes me not want to return. I also think I was overcharged.

We had a reservation and our table was ready on time. My wife asked me to order a Malbec. That was easy with only one choice. I enjoyed a Blanton's neat. Nice choice. There generally is a special bourbon or Scotch available at the bar that I enjoy. Wife's petit filet was great. My filet was good. Vegetables were very good (creamed spinach and asparagus). Wife enjoyed the chocolate duo. Really I was charged for one cup of after meal coffee? I was nice and did not let that affect her tip. Overall we had a very good time and plan to return.

The experience was great! The only exception is the odd tiny dessert offered. For an upscale restaurant, it's unusual not to decent dessert servings/options. This was my birthday dinner and was far superior to the Thanksgiving dinner we had at Ruth's last year.

From the moment we entered the restaurant until we left, we were treated like VIPs! Our waiter was very helpful in explaining the various meat and side choices and was able to make outstanding recommendations based on his personal experience. Best steaks we’ve ever had! The food isn’t cheap but you know that going in and you definitely get what you pay for here!

The service is awesome! The food is not as good as other Ruth’s Chris restaurants. For example, the au gratin potatoes were not very flavorful. I wish I had said something. I’m sure they would have made it right.
