Vanderbilt visit turned into steak extravaganza.

Try the wedge salad, lobster bisque, and the shrimp and filet combo. Yum.

This was my first visit to this location, but it was consistent with the 3 other Ruth’s Chris that I have visited. The service, as usual, was excellent. Steaks were perfectly prepared. My favorite thing on the menu is the sweet potato casserole. If you haven’t tried it, you’re missing out. I’ve tried many steak places, but Ruth’s Chris is my favorite. Only thing about this location is that it can be a little tricky getting in out depending on traffic.

We don't usually eat at chain restaurants but I had a gift card. They decorated the table for my boyfriend's birthday which was a cute surprise. The service was great. I think the ambiance is a little stuffy but since most people there were over 50, that may be their style. Food was good, but nothing amazing. I don't think it is worth the price compared to other steak restaurants.

This is the best meal I have had in Nashville, and I eat out often. Seafood tower is fantastic! Entire scene is upscale without being snobby. It is truly a treat! Lobster the best in Nashville. Filet on a par with the best in Nashville. A true gem.

Not worth the price tag. Dress code not enforced. Ambiance did not feel as special as other Ruth Chris Restaurants. The food was fine but certainly not melt in your mouth. Our waiter/service was exceptional. Bottom line, would not make the trip or spend the money at this establishment again.

We enjoyed it, but the presentation of our Steak could have been better. There were no garnish or eye appeal, just a sizzling very hot plate. My husband ordered the petite Ribye and half of it was fat for $46 we expected the entire steak to be eatable. The hostess was very pleasant as all the severs we came across. Tony our sever was EXCELLENT!!! Just to see him we will be back!!

We really enjoyed our meal from the appetizer to the dessert! Our wait staff was very knowledgeable about the menu and able to make excellent recommendations. The only down side was the size of the restaurant. We conversed easily with the couples seated on either side of us because we were all very closely seated. It did not really take away from the food but could have if they had not been friendly neighbors. We shared the porterhouse for two and it was more than enough food for us both!

We celebrated a 16th birthday with our family. The round table was perfect, gives an opportunity to share conversation around the table. However, the restaurant was particularly noisy this evening, so sharing conversation was limited. Also, the ambient lighting made it a little difficult to see what you were eating or how you were cutting your steak. The steaks were cooked well. The seasoning was a little too spicy for our youngest (7). The vegetables were too salted. But, the service was excellent.
