Still to many BS COVID excuses for normal great Ruth Chris experience.

No reason COVID would stop you from making shoe string fries. Enough already!

Long time around the world Ruth Chris fan

Top class. Sat outside on a beautiful night. The Up-lights lighting up the giant industrial tanks across the river was not A great view but everything else was perfect.

There for my boyfriend’s birthday. We had a 7:45 reservation. We got there at 7:20. Got sat down right away. Things started out good. We got our soup and salad out quickly. But, by 8:30 our food hadn’t arrived yet. By 8:45 our dinner finally came out. One thing I was happy about was they have the Jack Daniels Bread Pudding back. Know I remember why I haven’t been to here in awhile. My brother and I go to the one in Asheville when we go over to stay at the Inn At Biltmore. The service and food is so much better! I will not be returning here for awhile!!

We were seated right away. Our waiter Jason was very prompt in his attention and service. The meal was excellent as usual although I do wish you would offer a rice as an accompaniment.

Service as exceptional. Only disappointment is this was the second time visiting where my steak (bone in filet) was severely undercooked. I was informed their were new chefs in the kitchen recently where training was not yet completed. Other than this issue, which was quickly rectified it was great experience.

I reserved a table thinking it was last nite, turned out I had made it for the wrong date, and it was a Saturday night. They told us the next available table would be an hour and 45 minutes later. The hostess and manager realized that made a huge mistake and promptly created a table for the four of us even though it seemed to be full.
Everything was perfect. This will be our new go to place from now on.
Thank you for s great evening.

Our visit was a Valentine’s date for the husband and myself. Our server, Truman, the Caesar salad, and the bread pudding with whisky sauce were all amazing. The steak and sides were good but I’ve had better main course items at Ruth’s Chris in the past. It could have been that they were busy due to Valentine’s Day but it was a little off. Overall we were happy and will go back.
