Enjoyed Ruth's very much. We started with a the Seafood tower, it was the bomb and we could have stopped with just that, then we had a Caesar salad, I think it was the best I have ever tasted. Wife ordered the lobster tails with a filet and I ordered the sea Bass. The sea bass tasted as good if not better than the lobster. For sides we had the Broccoli (cooked to perfection) and sweet Potatoes, was like a desert...very very good.
Looking forward to returning.
First bad meal I’ve had here. My fillet was over cooked (ordered medium rare) and very dry, almost no flavor. Crab claws were very good. Not sure the quality of the beef is up to their standard for the fillet. My wife’s ribeye was also cooked to her liking and excellent.
We were celebrating our daughters 22nd birthday and had a nice table on the end of the porch outside. Steven did a wonderful job taking care of us. However there were no petite filets available and a few other sides that we missed. In that situation, I don’t understand why a large filet isn’t cut down to accommodate a request. We had a nice evening and we felt well taken care of.
As always, excellent. Filet & Lobster....amazing
The NY Strip was too tough to eat everything else excellent!
We were traveling between Ohio and Florida and decided to stop in Knoxville. The Ruth’s Chris is on the river and the setting is magnificent. Our server team was led by Branden and he was exceptional. We sat in the bar as we did not have
Reservation and the hostess (Paula or Pamela I believe) was so nice and very friendly in helping us secure a spot since the restaurant was booked (to covid approved capacity that is). We had filet and it was perfectly cooked and also enjoyed creamed spinach, loaded potato and wedge salad. We shared everything and the team made sure it was all split and that we each had all our own accoutrements. I recommend this lovely spot 110%.
Great steak!! Sad brussel sprouts are no longer on menu.
Attentive but unobtrusive service, excellent food and great drinks. Felt very welcome and treated very well. Highly recommend!
Very good meals and service. Will return soon.
It would be nice if the restaurant would introduce, or at least encourage minimum dress code.
When you are ready for a special meal that includes the proper atmosphere for good conservation with quiet, unobtrusive yet timely service - treat someone special to dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House. You will be pleased that you did.
Great location with beautiful view of the river. Great food
It was excellent. A wonderful evening out in spite of the pandemic
Great food and service! It's always nice to sit outside with a view of the river and downtown.
Outdoor Patio dining is awesome.
Wonderful birthday dinner!
Our server Steven was awesome.... food was delicious as always! Ruth’s Chris is consistently great🇺🇸
My Son’s birthday dinner. This is his favorite restaurant. Great food and service!
Celebrating friends birthday. Mashed potatoes were cold, had to send back. Steak was good. Service was good.
We went to Ruth’s Chris to celebrate our anniversary and it was absolutely fantastic. The food, service, and atmosphere was excellent. I highly recommend Ruth’s Chris for any special occasion.
Food and service have never disappointed us at Ruth's Chris!!
This was our first time eating at Ruth's Chris Steak House, Jason was our waiter and he was great. He made the experience even better, he made sure to get our names and use our names during our dinner. Great atmosphere, great drinks and great food.
Everything was great except the price. Most expensive steak my wife and I have ever eaten.
11 year Anniversary Dinner. We come every year. Love this place!
Great staff - steak was just ok. It wasn't the best cut for a filet - was kinda surprised.
Great food ,beautiful atmosphere great service
This Ruth’s Chris always is fantastic. Great service and fantastic food.
My husband and I came to celebrate our anniversary! Typically, I hate long dinners, but I felt so relaxed here. I felt taken care of by our waiter without him pestering us every five minutes. Because our favorite side wasn’t on the menu at the time, he recommended something different that we really enjoyed! It was such a great night!
Delicious steak and lobster
We frequent displays and I've noticed the quality of service has gone down quite a bit. Seeing as this is one of the only fine dining places in the area it's a no brainer but for the price I feel like the experience is not worth it. There were dirty napkins on the floor along with shrimp tails etc. We finished our appetizers before our drinks were even brought to us. Dishes we're piled skyhigh to the point that we had to get up and walk it to another table so we have room. Just doesn't seem worth it for $500 dinner. My steak knife dropped on the ground and I asked for a replacement the gentleman told me I didn't need one to just use my butter knife. I understand where he was going with that but I don't really think that that is up to his discretion. We had a party of 10 on my husband's birthday two months ago and our experience was atrocious, gave this place another chance and once again was let down. Doubtful we will be returning, maybe to any other Ruth's Chris as well.

Always perfect! It is expensive so we usually only go for special occasions but it is worth every penny. The Lobster Mac is one of the best things you’ll ever eat.
Nice facility, good views. Food always great. Nice people. Parking is easy.
we have been going about 4 to 6 times a year and have always been happy.
Lamb, steak and lobster were great.
Stuffed mushrooms, to die for.
Chloe was a fine server.
Only issue was asparagus was tooth pick thin,
Excellent food and service.
Our waiter was great. My chop salad was nothing like I’ve had in the past. Huge pieces of onion, no hearts of palm, very plain. My petite filet was ordered medium. When it came out it was rare. I sent it back and again it was quite rare again.
This is the first time I e ever been disappointed in the food at a Ruth Chris.

Outstanding friendly service, beautifully prepared food, and interesting wine selections make this spot our family's favorite for a special occasion or date night! Dine on the lovely porch along the river or inside at nicely spaced tables- everything is done right at this Ruth's Chris!
Superb meal and service from Darlene and Jonathan. We are frequent diners and will be back again soon.
Cannot say enough about the Ruths Chris in Knoxville. From the time you enter to the time you leave you will have the utmost in wonderful Southern hospitality. Friendly smiling faces and of course the food. I’ve been lucky to have really made several friends here and I’m looking to more future visits. The food is always fresh and to your liking. And the views are some of the best in Knoxville and our beautiful, Tennessee River. A special shoutout to one of the managers, Jonathan and the best bartender, Ardon. Please try this location our when in Knoxville or just when you want to treat yourself special. You will not be disappointed, guaranteed!!!!
Food was excellent as usual. The 8 oz fillet was delicious, although it had just a tad too much seasoning. But still it was wonderful.
