    The server was good, the food was not. For spending almost 400.00 the steak was dry and chewy and the potatoes weren’t done. The app was great, the salad was great. The wine was way overpriced. The dessert was good. The menu said the steak was 57.00 when the bill came my steak was 76.00. It was our anniversary so I didn’t complain but totally disappointed with everything but the server. She was amazing.

    This experience was laughably terrible, & I hope to save anyone familiar with the typical RC experience from expecting the same here. It was our son’s college graduation dinner, & We’ve dined at several RC’s and always had a wonderful experience. This was more like an Outback Steakhouse level of refinement with a Ruth’s Chris price tag. We waited almost 20 min for our reservation, & once seated, placed at the far end of the outdoor patio on iron chairs w/out any cushion. Not bad for a drink, but not a 2 hour experience. Our server came and gave us a 3-min spiel letting us know we were at the “worlds largest Ruth’s Chris” and warning us the plates would come out at 500 degrees-this was her letting us know not to say she didn’t tell us so- she’s not responsible for burned fingers or forearms. Ok. We brought a bottle of vintage champagne & ordered a couple drinks with the intention of having a toast & then ordering a bottle of wine- waited another 30 minutes for drinks & champagne glasses. When they came out, they were dripping wet & hot from the dishwasher. Our server opened the bottle and exploded the cork- bubbles streaming all over the side and down onto the table. Salads were good, lobster bisque was watery and thin. For $59, you’d expect your filet to be quality, or at the very least, edible. Nope. The au gratin potatoes were uncooked rocks floating in cheese, the lobster Mac and Cheese was utterly flavorless, and the mashed potatoes just blah. The only delicious item on the table was the sweet potato casserole, & even that needed to have about a 1/2 inch less sugar coat. When the entrees arrived, the server asst knocked three shrimp off my son’s platter and they landed on the tray. He left, we thought to get more shrimp- nope. He came back w/2 forks and tried to tong them onto his plate, dropping them onto the tray multiple times. Son declined - no offer, apology or recovery at all. Just all in all bad, definitely not worth $800 for 6 ppl. Save your money

    We ordered appetizer, salad, steak and side of broccoli. Appetizer and salad were served together rathe than one after the other. We weren't done with the salad when they rushed the steak to the table. Timing of the entire dinner was off. They had everything at the table within 20 minutes. There was no time to enjoy our drinks and appetizers before everything else showed up at the table. Waitress asked if she could hold the stake for a while. Not sure how she planned to do it. Was she just going to leave it on the tray until we were done with our salad? While the steak got cold? Completely unacceptable.

    Have been to this location several times, always excellent. First let me say Megan and her trainee were excellent! We ordered 3 steaks. Ribeye (medium), filet (medium rare) and another filet (medium). The ribeye and filet/shrimp came out well done. Very well done. They took back steaks and the ribeye came back raw/ but very burnt on outside, I think this was probably from trying to get it back out to us as quickly as possible. It was a fail. The filet/shrimp was more medium to medium well. Unfortunately, our sides were all cold by the time the steaks came out for the second time. The ribeye was just not edible. The manger was nice enough to refund the full price and was apologetic. I’m chalking this up to a bad night for the chef and perhaps labor shortage. Again, Megan and trainee were very apologetic and you could tell she wasn’t happy it was taking so long to have second attempt delivered. Overall very disappointed as we were celebrating 2 birthdays but it is what it is.

    Can’t say enough good about our dining experience. We were celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary and we were treated as royalty. The good was fantastic and over plentiful. The service could not have been better down to the young man that packaged our left overs for carry home. Highly recommend Ruth Chris Knoxville as an eating experience.

    Service was great, steak was good. Sea Bass was a tad too much garlic and the flourless Chocolate cake was a good choice for finishing the meal. Hard pass on the espresso martini next time. To strong but the Rasberry Cosmo was a great choice.
