Typically, when eating at this Ruth's Chris location, we sit at the bar. This time we choose a table in the dining room. What a mistake. The ambiance was terrible. Too quiet. Too bland. Too of everything that makes an evening unmemorable. Although the food and service were great, as usual, I would only recommend this location for bar seating.

Excellent service. Server, Michael, found out that I am lactose intolerant and asked the chef to make au jus for my baked potato and made sure that dairy was not a part of my meal.

I asked the Manager -David- to have a bottle of wine ready when we got to our table. It was there and David personally opened and poured it for us. We had a great time and the service was excellent. Thanks for a great night out. Our waitress was Ciara.

I know you probably think of Steaks when you think of Ruth’s Chris, however I would encourage you to try the sweet potato casserole. It was the best we have ever had! Not too sweet and extremely savory!

This was my wife and my first time out in a few months. We wanted a night for ourselves away from the kids. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening!

The steaks were good but both were over cooked. Appetizers were very very good. We thought the white wine list was limited and overpriced. Good waitress and service staff. Overall very good and would have been great if the steaks were not cooked too much. The bison filet was overrated. Would go back but not anytime soon.

We were greeted and told we would be seated right away. We waited 10 minutes and asked about our table, we were told that it would just be another minute. 5 minutes later we were approached and told the group at our table was just eating their dessert. This was already after our reservation time. We asked for the manager and she told us that they were doing the best they could but since we booked online the system messed up the table somehow. Finally 30 minutes after our reservation time we were approaching our table and the man scolded me for bringing my own cake. As my husband was taking it back out to the car the man told me I should have known the board of health only allows store bought cakes. I explained my daughter is gluten free and we always bring our own cake but he didn't care. I asked him not to yell at me in front of my party and he said, "I didn't raise my voice." He then proceeded to scold me about the cake. I told him, "we have taken it out to the car so it should no longer be an issue, can I just sit down and enjoy my dinner please?" Unfortunately, I'd like to say that the rest of the evening saw great service and great food but I can't. I will not be returning any time soon. I wish it would have been better especially when you consider the cost for a restaurant at this level you expect the service, staff and food to be at the same level.

After a great meal in the bar area a few weeks ago, we went back again for my friend's 40th birthday party. We had a superb dinner! Started with cocktails and the calamari with a sweet chili sauce that I wish I had the recipe for. Then, the 4 of us ordered the bison filet, bone-in cowboy ribeye, fresh fish, and stuffed chicken-- all entrees were piping hot and loaded with flavor. Our server, Patrick, was also excellent-- fast, knowledgeable, and attentive. Could not ask for more on a great birthday night out!

Overall experience was alright. However for the price I did leave feeling a bit unimpressed. I guess that tends to happen with chain fine dining. The service was great but the food left a bit to be desired. My blackened salmon had hardly any flavor.

Special occasion holiday dinner. Service was outstanding. Food was top notch except for the hash browns which were overcooked and not really "loaded". Some slow service on drink requests but the nice small quiet room made up for any slightly off issues. Manager checking on aspects with every table says a great deal about how much they care! Overall best holiday dining out experience in a while.

My spouses steak was overcooked but he did not want to send it back. For what we paid he should have. We also shared a lobster tail and it was also overcooked and tough. I got a ribeye and it was not as good as I thought it would be.

I am sorry I was just not that impressed given what we paid. I don't normally spend that much for a meal but I wanted to do something nice for Christmas. I really did not think it was worth it.

We selected from the fixe prix menu. It is smaller portions at a lower price - good for us. All selections were delicious. Service is very attentive. This is my favorite steak house in the area. Better than downtown Indy.

Room we were sat in was quite nice until a very loud family with a son who wouldn’t stop coughing came in. Follow that with the other waiter who was about as loud and as boisterous as one can imagine and we could hardly think let alone talk. We waited approximately 45 minutes for our meal once ordered and were told that the “kitchen got off to a slow start this evening”. My steak was lukewarm and so was my spinach but I would rather stomach it then do the dance that ensues once you mention something like this to the waitstaff.

Bottom line: I have been to this Ruth’s Chris more times than I can count, and this was the ONLY time I’d not recommend it. I don’t know what was going on today but everything was subpar.

Great steakhouse. Beautiful building. The food is very good, though they have some formidable competition. Server was nice but a bit more intrusive than I like. He also glazed over things like the cost of a bottle of wine and questions on our bill. Great place, very good food, would pick a different server next time.

One of the least pleasurable experiences at RCSH. Ordered lobster bisque and wedge salad. The rest of the table steak, salads, sides. Bisque was velvety smooth as it should be but Luke warm and slopped over the side of the bowl. Very little lobster flavor in my opinion. Wedge salad a bit underdressed,despite having a side of dressing being brought without my asking. Nice touch. Very sparse bacon. Extra bacon requested and arrived as I was finishing salad. Guest shared a bite of crab cake and it was soggy and fishy-tasting. Waiter was friendly but a bit over the top. If the table wasn't full of guests, I would have pulled him aside and offered suggestions. Several managers came by to ask about dinner. Again, I am not about to make a fuss at the table. Nice touch that they gave an elegant birthday greeting, dessertand gift card to the guest of honor
We are dining again at this location Friday and cannot say I am looking forward to it unless the experience is much better and up to the par I normally receive from RCSH, and this location.
