Everything was perfect from the moment we walked in. It was our anniversary and the table had rose petals on it! The waitress was very sweet and caring. The food was outstanding! And the servings are generous! Very well done. We will definitely be back!

The food and service are always spectacular. Ruth’s has the best steaks sizzling in butter on a 500 degree plate. I absolutely love the creamed spinach and Ruth’s chopped salad. My husband loves the classic cheesecake for dessert. It’s worth a trip. The manager, Lee, is a cool dude, and the servers treat you well.

Eaten here several times over the years, and this is the first time that the shrimp were NOT good at all, and the ribeye was just so-so. maybe they were overbooked as it was Valentine's Weekend, but still a bit disappointing to spend the money and not have our expectations met.

My Girlfriend and I had a lovely valentine's date at Ruth's. Perfect execution on the meal and our choice of wine. We ended up waiting a bit longer for our entrees, and received a free dessert to compensate for the slight delay of, at most, ten minutes. They take good care of you at Ruth's!

Wonderful Restaurant. We ordered the New York Strip (Specialty Cut), Asparagus and Au Gratin Potatoes. Everything was excellent including the service. Probably shouldnt have value on the Review since it's more of a special occasion restaurant for us so we knew the bill was going to be a bit higher. Highly recommend.

Visited Ruth Chris for a birthday dinner and overall experience was excellent. It was a cold night so multiple fireplaces warmed up the room and the ambiance. The quality of the food was excellent and they hit the ball out of the park with their steaks and all the delicious accompaniments. Even my daughter who is vegetarian was able to navigate a wonderful meal. Highly recommend Ruth Chris for any special occasion or just for a great dinner out.

We were there for restaurant week. As always, the food was delicious. We all had the filet, and they were all cooked to perfection. Sides and salads were great too. Service was very good too. Maybe slightly slower than usual, but that’s restaurant week for you. I only had one small issue; There must have been a mix up with our credit card slips, because despite the fact that I left a cash tip, I was charged an extra $13. There were three of us, and like I said, I assume it was just a mix up with our slips. Didn’t seem worth the hassle to call over $13 though.

We dined with two other couples and had a delicious meal. We were able to carry on a conversation and yet did not have any problem with other tables being too loud. The waitress was wonderful and very patient. It is a bit pricey menu but we will definitely dine there again.

The food and service was good. This location had a band playing in the bar. We were seated at a table in the dining room but it was close to the bar. Therefore the five of us were having difficulty hearing each other. The restaurant was not busy so I think they could have sat us away from the noise. Besides that it was fine. Good food, good service.

Ruth’s never disappoints! Food is excellent, especially the steaks. Combo special with filet and lobster was awesome with a couple of sides and reasonably priced. Bartenders are friendly and wait staff is very attentive. Night was topped off with a free dessert for our Anniversary. Great night all around. Drinks are pretty pricey.

We made a last minute decision to go to dinner with my husband and Ruth’s is our go to. We normally have Young as our waitress but we instead had Amanda and she was AMAZING!! The food is always good but the service with either Young or Amanda makes the difference! We now call before we go to see if they are working and if we can sit in their section!

I have eaten as Ruth Chris Location all around the county and always been completely satisfied. Every single time I have ordered the NY Strip for entree and bread pudding for dessert. All those dozens of times the appearance, size, taste and texture have been nearly identical at all locations and during repeat visits to each location.

This was not the case here at this Middleton Location on this visit. While the drinks and appetizers and sides were as expected. The steak I received was not at all. At every other location the steak has been large and thick, perfectly cooked with wonderful searing and taste and texture, and I have never been able to finish more than have the steak after appetizers and sides and saving room for dessert.

The "NY Strip" I received at this location looked, and tasted, like a cheap cut from the local grocery store, it wasn't even an inch thick while every other cut Ive had at other locations has been at least 2 inches or more, grey and unappealing in appearance, fatty, had no sear or flavor whatsoever, just a bit of pepper and butter. Not at all a professional or fine steak in appearance or flavor. I'm not crazy, I have had the same steak at different ruth chris locations at least 30 times, I sat just looking and poking at it for a bit wondering if I had lost my mind, took a bite and left to go eat at rare after.

Absolutely disappointing, while I will continue to visit ruth chris in other locations, I will have to consider ever coming back to this location. And if I do, it will be with picture and video proof of the steaks I receive at other Ruth Chris locations to compare to theirs and will certainly not be paying for an inferior and outright deceitful product they were happy to serve here.

Just be careful, if you don't think you're getting the steak you are paying for, here, you apparently really aren't.
