I'm just a Louisiana girl who loves Ruth's Chris - the Knoxville location lived up to Ruth's standards! Great bar to escape the rain and still watch the game! Knoxville and UT fans are awesome - we had a great time - thanks for the hospitality!

Our reservations were at 4:30, right when RC opened and they did not have one of the featured seasonal menu items, which was a disappointment. Our server told us they had run out; however, if they were already "out" at opening time, that tells me that the restaurant didn't have the item to begin with.

Steaks wonderful as usual. Amazing Caesar salad!!
Server was a little overloaded due to shortage of one server calling in sick...our soup order wasn't entered into the system. Corkage fee is very reasonable!!
Would be nice to have valet service more than just on weekends.
Amazing how CASUAL most people dressed at such a fine restaurant!!

Bustling and lively restaurant to eat at overlooking the river in downtown Knoxville. Food and attention were outstanding, my only criticism is the lobster tails could be more plump and large for the value.

2 and 1/2 hours was tooo long for this meal. Seated at 7:30 and left at 10:00. 4 of 6 steak orders were over cooked. Just not a good experience compared to many others at this and other Ruth's Chris locations around the country.

Unbelievable flavors with a great side selection and ample portion sizes for sharing. Lobster Mac is off the charts as well as the au gratin potatoes. Cowboy ribeye is the only way to go hands down

While we enjoyed the usual fine service and ambiance, this was the first time I have had issues with the food. The steak I had was quite chewy and fatty in a portion of it. I did not eat about 1/3 of it. Also, the side dishes were not as hot as expected. On a positive note, our server Matthew was excellent.

The waiter, Jeremy, treated us like second class citizens. We have eaten at Ruth’s Chris in Knoxville and elsewhere, not to mention nicer places, and have been treated with more respect. Drinks took 20+ mins to get and appetizer came before our first round of drinks. Will not be back to this location.

The service was attentive. The dinner of filet mignon for myself and a petite filet for my daughter was a little on the small side and a little overcooked. My filet was suppose to be a pre-weight of 11 oz. It looked smaller than my daughter's petite filet when served. The potato au-gratin and lobster mac and cheese were a little to saucy for my taste but my wife liked it.

Anniversary.
Our table was ready with cute "Happy Anniversary" confetti. It was so nice to be dressed up for dinner. Most Knoxville restaurants are too casual for my tastes.
The wait staff were very friendly but professional. The food was delicious with special anniversary desserts.
We were visiting family and will definitely return on our next visit. I wish they were open for lunch - maybe next trip. Great experience!

Was very dissatisfied with the service. Extremely long wait to place an order and get a glass of wine. Our appetizer arrived and still no wine - had to ask the food runner to check as our server and his assistant was no where to be found. It did not appear to be busy. When dinner costs over $100 per person the service should wow you. We love fine dining and liked the food tonight, but service tonight was awkward at best.

We have been to Ruth's Chris in Knoxville several times. This was not one of the best. While the server was fine, the service was incredibly slow. We did have reservation, so we were not walk ins on a busy Friday night. Unfortunate as the food is good/consistent....but was really disappointed in the evening.
