We had reservations for 2 on Sat. Feb. 16th of Valentines weekend. Big mistake at this location. Ruth's Chris is a great steakhouse and I've eaten at Ruth's Chris other locations around the country with superb results many other times. It became clear very soon upon our seating that this location's mgmt was more interested in the bottom dollar than the quality of food delivered and ambience. They were using every party room, primary dining room, lounge, & any area they could fit a table to seat customers. Our table was in a separate party room, not the primary dining room. Big difference in ambience at this location. The lighting was poor. My chair's seat was very dirty. Regarding the food, the wedge salad was terrible...poor quality of iceberg lettuce placed on the plate with just a dab of blue cheese dressing placed on each side of the large portion of lettuce. My bone-in ribeye was ordered medium rare and arrived medium well done. I was not sending either the salad or the steak back to the kitchen during such an overpacked night of customers because you don't know how long the wait would be to have your food returned to your table and if any improvements would be made to each.. I also figured the kitchen was under staffed for a full house of all customers placing every order ala carte leading to all steaks cooked to the same temperature and salads rushed out the door so orders can simply get out of the kitchen to be delivered. Summary, don't go to this Ruth's Chris location during a holiday. It's very apparent mgmt is interested in collecting your money and sacrificing quality of the food and ambience to each customer for a special holiday. Yes, go eat at this restaurant, but not during a special holiday when they take every reservation and end up over-taxing their kitchen staff resulting in a poor experience for the customer.

Overall, we had a wonderful dinner. Just a few small things, nothing major. Didn’t love the table location we were seated at and had to ask twice to have bread brought to the table and the wine glasses cleared. But when the steaks came, they were perfect. My second time having dinner there and both meals were well above average. I’ll go again.

It was my first time at Ruth Chris restaurant. I did enjoy the food. There are many varieties in both food and drinks.
The staff was friendly, polite and helpful when ordering.
Everything was great. I didnt like that the tables in distance are in very close proximity.
Other than that, I enjoyed it!

We went for restaurant week and ended up ordering off their menu getting a combo meal that they offered. The ribeye was absolutely delicious with a crispy outside and tender and juicy inside. The servers were pleasant and helpful. Wonderful experience.

Great steak. Terrific service from our waiter. His suggestion of salads and side dishes was “right on point. He also combined choices from the menu and the special restaurant week menu that worked both tastefully and financially.

Delightful as always. The vegetables were not warm (but they weren’t cold so they were at least edible). Would have been perfect if the vegetable sides hadn’t lost their heat! Steaks were perfect. Salad and dessert were wonderful. Never had a problem with the temp of the veggies before and we go there all the time. Overall very pleased!

Service was VERY slow. Took 45 minutes to get salads (i think the waiter forgot them). Timing was off and two of the entres were cold.

Waiter was not attentive.

For that type of money, one should get quality service and food.

I will not be returning to any Ruth's Chris restaurants.

I ordered a filet. I asked for medium rare. It was closer to medium well. It was not medium rare in any part of the steak. My wife ordered a fish special, halibut. We were with guests, and she did not complain. When we got home she told me it was dry. I ordered a side of lobster mac and cheese. I have had it in a number of places. Del Frisco’s was far better. So was every other place I ordered it. I haven’t been to this restaurant in years. It was far better in the past.
