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.

Ruth Chris is a favorite no matter where we travel and they never disappoint. The steaks are tender and cooked to perfection. The side dishes are creative, delicious and complement the entres perfectly. To top it off the service is friendly, professional and attentive but not obsequious. Great value for a special dining experience!

We had a very good Thanksgiving dinner and went with the traditional turkey with stuffing, potatoes, green beens and cranberry sauce. The acorn squash bisque was fabulous and both the pumpkin cheese cake and apple pie crisp were delicious. Add in a little wine and scotch, and you have a complete dining experience.

Thanksgiving day turkey was pressed and processed meat. ( Fancy lunch meat) Not carved Turkey. Very disappointed. Definitely not worth the value of a holiday dinner experience

Family Thanksgiving Day celebration. They did offer a traditional Thanksgiving menu, but we opted for the a la carte and had steaks. Superb steaks, perfectly cooked. Service was impeccable, very friendly and efficient. Could not fault a thing. Yes, it's expensive, but for a special occasion we felt it was worth it.

An Amazing Thanksgiving! We are new to Indy and just moved into our new home in Meridian Hills. It was most appropriate to let someone else do the "heavy lifting" for Thanksgiving since most of our household items (including the kitchen) are still in boxes. Our reservations at Ruth's Chris was a perfect decision. While they offered the entire holiday meal menu with all the trimmings, the full menu was also available. We both had amazing steaks. We were able to celebrate how grateful we are to have new beginnings in Indy. As we were finishing and closing out the check, the manager came over to welcome us and gave us an ENTIRE apple pie to enjoy in our new home. How lovely. Great holiday!

Went there for a milestone birthday dinner, could not have been any better. Food was awesome, our waiter was fantastic, and the table visits by the managers were appreciated. Nice complimentary birthday dessert, and the manager hand delivered a handwritten birthday card and gift card to my wife.
Totally enjoyable dining experience !!!

Love the layout of this place. The bar is large and in a prominent location without being too dominant. The service was excellent and very friendly. The 11 oz. filet was prepared perfectly as was the grilled salmon. Cream spinach and couscous sides were very good, as well as the butternut squash bisque and Caesar salad. Crab stuffed mushrooms were average at best, as were the martini and old fashioned cocktails. White and red wine suggestions were excellent.

We have been to Ruth's Chris many times over the years and have always had a good meal. This time however, was different. My steak was very undercooked, and my husband's was overcooked. I sent mine back. When I cut into it the 2nd time, I realized how fatty and stringy the meat was (a filet). It also had virtually no flavor. My husband's steak (bone in NY Strip) also had no flavor. The potatoes were cold and the asparagus didn't stay hot long. I typically wouldn't say anything, but the manager stopped by our table and asked, so I told him. He was nice enough to take the steaks and sides off of our bill, which we really appreciated. We're willing to give them another chance - maybe they got in a bad shipment of steaks. Hopefully the next time they've got their game back and their steaks taste as good as they have in the past.

The service was terrible - it took me 30 minutes to get a check. I sat there with uncleared table, my 4 guests left and it still took the waiter 30 minutes to get me checked out. I complained to the Manager and he agreed that the waiter was slow but he didn't really do anything about my issue. Great food - bad service!

An amazing date night!! I would recommend ordering your steak one level less cooked (rare instead of med/rare) as the hot plate continues cooking your steak after it arrives at the table, but the flavor more than made up for that.
