was my girlfriends birthday. They sat us immediately. Very friendly staff. Waitress was amazing, Victoria. Food was done very well. The lamb app was awesome. We had one little hiccup with her steak and they, without question took it back and recooked a new steak, even upgraded it!! They brought her a very nice little birthday dessert as well. There cheesecake is out of this world.

It's Ruth Chris. What more can you say? It never disappoints me when it comes to the wonderful cut of the meat and how well it's cooked to your liking. It lives up to its name and the reputation.

This was the first time we went to this Ruth Chris. Had an amazing time with amazing food and service! We will be back. Ask for one of the circle booths for a more intimate setting.

Thanks

It started off bad but the service was great. When being seated we asked to be placed at a different table that was large enough for our party of 6. We were seated at the first table in front of the main walkway. My wife saw the open table and asked for it. The hostess went to check and came back and said it was reserved.
Two hours later and we were paying the $400.00 plus bill the table was still empty.
As I said at the beginning, the great service somewhat made up for the lying by the hostess.
It will most likely be a while before returning to this location. Not that we are there every weekend, but when we visit our daughter this is the place we usually go.

tHE MEAL WAS GREAT AFTER IT WAS SERVED. there WAS A DELAY IN THE KITCHEN, AND THE MEALDID NOT ARRIVE FOR ALMOST AN HOUR AFTER THE SERVER TOOK THE ORDER. THE MANAGER IN THE ROOM INDICATED A KITCHEN PROBLEM. THE SERVER SHOULD HAVE INFORMED US, AND WE WOULD HAVE UNDERSTOOD. THE MANAGER DID APPLY A REFUND TO OUR BILL, WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN UNNECESSARY.

Outstanding service and food as usual. We live in Central NY and make the trip to RC Mohegan Sun just for the lamb chops, other meals we have had there are wonderful as well. The front of the house staff is always polite and professional. They will do meal splitting without hesitation and take home bags seem to be at most tables after a meal.

Checked in at 6:20 and was told that they were running on time and my table should be ready ina few minutes. We went and got a drink and at 6:50 I went back to the desk where they looked confused as to my question of when is my table going to be ready since you are running on time. I was told it would be five minutes. At 7:15 I went back out a little upset and they finally took me to be seated even know there were several open tables and booths. Food was good but the service was lacking

I brought a date out for a romantic evening. We started at Ruth’s Chris. Neither of us had been there before. They sat us promptly (we arrived 10minutes early for our reservation). The wait staff was patient, explained anything we asked, and treated us very well. The food was amazing. I had the Sea Bass, She had the Fillet (cooked perfectly) We shared some sides which were also delicious. The setting was intimate and romantic tucked away in one of the horse shoe style booths.

Great place for Date Night.

I always enjoy my meals here. I often eat in a booth in the bar which I love. The food is always on point. They have a late happy hour on Friday and Saturday nights I believe from 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. which is great. Happy hour has great drinks and food with it. When you come in here, you really don't feel like you are in a casino per se. I highly recommend this for a special occasion or just a great meal.

Even though we had a reservation, we still waited 15 minutes to be seated. The service was fantastic. My salad was not fresh and it was quickly replaced with a new one without a problem. I don't think I would go to this location again though because of the smoky atmosphere of the casino, it was inescapable.

NYE dinner was fabulous! It was the best dinner I've had at Ruth's Chris. Started with beef carpaccio, scrumptious!. I had the three course prefix- Chilean sea bass with spinach and Thai sauce. It was the best prepared fish and the sauce was spicy sweet. My husband had the surf and turf- lobster tail & filet-prepared perfectly. The sweet cream and berry dessert was a great ending to my dinner. June, our server and Kevin the busboy were spot on, helpful but not overcrowding. Perfect night, great ambiance, definitely worth the money.

We are frequent customers at Ruth's Chris steakhouse and the brand is pretty consistent across states. However, this particular location has timing issues that are not experienced in other locations. Whenever I order surf and turf or steak, I request a cold plate because the 500 degree sizzling plate continues to cook the steak and/or lobster beyond my desired temperature level. Well, because my steak is served on a cold plate, my husband never seems to get the 500 degree plate, which he prefers since he likes medium well, more to the well side. He always orders medium on the 500 degree plate because it will continue to cook the steak to his desired temperature. It's been a pretty consistent issue at the Wilkes-Barre location that has not been addresses but not remedied. We did mention this to the main dining room manager but her reaction of shock when told it's a consistent problem encountered in this location, was offputting. This evening I ordered surf and surf on a cold plate, my husband ordered the NY strip on 500 degree plate, my dinner arrived as ordered but, my husbands meal was on a warm plate, but not the traditional sizzling plate you expect. Also, I was not served butter for the lobster. As soon as the food was delivered I requested butter...it did not arrive. We waited and waited, no one came to check steak temperatures or deliver the requested butter, so I left my seat to summon one of the servers grouped together near the fireplace. As I approached the group they scattered except an older female. She retrieved our actual server who brought butter, by that time the lobster was cold
They also brought a sizzling plate for my husband and offered dessert on the house. This situation was very frustrating because we suspect our meals are prepared by the kitchen as we ordered, they just seem to sit waiting to be delivered causing my husband's plate to cool. We realize it was a busy night but also realize it's a location issue that needs to fix.
