We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Ocean City. The setting is lovely and the food was everything you'd expect at this steak house. It's consistent, very high quality food in a wonderful setting.

Quiet off season week night. We enjoy eating dinner in the bar area versus the more formal dining room. We were able to have appetizers and split an entree which was plenty of food for us. Add a bottle of wine and had a perfect evening.

Always enjoy eating at Ruth's Chris. The location of this Ruth's Chris is special because it's in a renovated barn that housed the famous horse Man O War. Beautiful place, great food and ambience and the service is always impeccable.

Hostess check-in was polite and efficient. Our server, Bianca, was knowledgeable, pleasant and very attentive. She recommended a tasty pre meal cocktail and even altered it slightly to my taste. The food was excellent and the wine list had something just right for the two of us.
The only negative I had was that the bar was understaffed for the crowd that was there. We were going to start with a cocktail there but after 10 minutes of no service, we decided to go to our table. This will not keep me from coming back as it has not been this way in the past and the rest of the evening was delightful.

Our waiter was Vlad. He was very conciencious. He knew the menu and worked great with the customers. The surf and turf was excellent. The lamb chops were huge and delicious. The Shrimp Cocktail appetizer was one of my all time favorites. Huge shrimp, fresh and delicious. The sweet potato casserole was to die for and the brussell sprouts had great flavoring. Service was excellent as the waiter was very observant. This was the best Ruth Chris ever. Had a bad dining experience at Ruth Chris in Pikesville years ago, and swore never to go back to Ruth Chris. Flemmings was my favorite, the Ombionce and our visit I would say rates at a 10 out of 10. We were there at night, so we could not see the scenery out doors. All was excellent.

Manager John went above and beyond to make my husband's birthday extra special. Our waitress Bianca did an excellent job of serving us, and we were not rushed at all. This was the first time we've ever had our coffee cups warmed with hot water before pouring the coffee. All 4 meals were excellent. Thanks to all who made this special occasion great.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on October 14, 2017

Our home is in Delaware County, PA, very close to the home of the legendary race horse owner Samuel Riddle. The Riddle name, and those of his famous horses (Man O’ War, War Admiral, etc.) are used in housing developments, roads, restaurants and even a major hospital. They are names and history we grew up with are very familiar. On our way to a conference in Virginia Beach, we stopped off about halfway the first night in Berlin, Maryland. By blind choice, we chose Ruth’s Chris from Open Table, wanting a higher quality dinner than typical resort stopovers offer. We were first surprised that this particular restaurant was the clubhouse restaurant of a country club, located adjacent to the golf course. We were doubly surprised to see the pictures of Sam Riddle and his horses, and to discover that this was the area where his horse training farm had been located. The restaurant even housed a Riddle museum. The staff was more than willing to talk about the history. The ambiance was men’s clubbish elegant. The food was of the quality you expect from Ruth’s Chris. The wine was priced on the high side but all in all it was a very pleasant and comfortable dining experience. I had the NY strip. My wife had the Filet. Both were cooked exactly to specification and seasoned perfectly. The vegetable portions were too large for either of us to finish. I would recommend this restaurant to any of my friends, and more importantly, I would return on a future trip.

As a frequent diner at Ruth Chris Steakhouses in various locations, we were greatly disappointed that this location did not honor the 3 course seasonal price fix promotion. Before making the reservation, we visited their website. Under the promotions link, it was clearly listed. Although the waiter was a nice young man, we were surprised the manager did not address the fact that we questioned the price fix menu that clearly comes up on their website. We observed the manager visiting the other tables to make sure they were having a satisfactory experience, it seems as though she avoided our table. In addition, we indicated we were celebrating an anniversary, no acknowledgment was made by any staff member. The food was prepared well to Ruth Chris standards, however, their chef special menu was easily misinterpreted. It appeared to us that there were two types of fingerling potatoes: oven roasted and roasted with Chipotle, cheese and bacon. We ordered the plain roasted, and received the chipotle ones. When we questioned the waiter, his reply was this happened many times before and they were going to rewrite the menu. He did not offer to take any action to rectify the situation.

*Added note: The General Manager did contact me after my review (He was not the manager on duty when we dined here). He was extremely nice and did his best to rectify the situation. I look forward to eventually meeting him and dining at his location again.

We always enjoy the steaks and side dishes (mushrooms in particular) because of the high quality of the meat, hot temperature of the steaks and side dishes along with the delicious drinks. The atmosphere is always nice, and it is a great place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, the holidays, etc.

Had THE BEST experience here yet again. My husband and I went for my 50th birthday. Food was outstanding. Andrew, our server was outstanding. Manager stopped by the table a few times to see how everything was. The bus girl, Hope, even sang happy birthday to me in a low tone that made us laugh. And to boot, a server we had last year recognized us and said he was happy to see us again. THAT is service all around. Kudos to this establishment. We'll be back!

Food took longer than average. We love Ruth's Chris typically but this location was not on par with others. Steak wasn't seared properly so the crust was lacking (bordering on non-existent). Food was okay overall but not for the Ruth's Chris pricetag. If you're in the area head to Shark on the Harbor or Sunset instead.

I find that it's always an enjoyable dining event to visit Ruth's Chris of Ocean City. The appetizers, salad , entrees, cocktails, wine are superb and the service is excellent. There's always plenty of parking when we visit for a Sunday mid-day meal. I'm sure it's coincidental, but when we visit the weather is always nice. I'd recommend the tomato, mozzarella salad, the shrimp cocktail and the steak filets. It's my birthday go-to dining experience. We enjoy the food so much that we always plan on left over food and purchasing more to go.

This was the best meal we have eaten in the Ocean City, Md area! I had the 11oz filet topped with the crab & asparagus, my husband had the 16oz ribeye. We ordered Med rare as the steaks continue to cook on the sizzling hot plates when served. When we ate the first bite they were both medium, which was perfect for our tastes! The meat was melt in your mouth delicious! We also had the mushrooms stuffed with crab for an appetizer, the chop salad, sides of potatoe Augratin , and creamed spinach. The crabmeat was fresh and so delicious . To top it off they presented a coconut/pineapple dessert with a candle for my birthday . It was a wonderful meal and we highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the Ocean City, Md area!

One of the best Ruth's Chris we visit. The food is consistently excellent, and the servers are attentive. They typically have very unique and appealing local food on the special menu which sets this RC apart from others in the state. I still prefer the ambiance of the Annapolis RC, but this is certainly the second best in Maryland.

Kind of out of the Way Ruth Chris restaurant. However our server was very kind. We ordered the bisque then the Ruth salad, afterward it took forever for entrées to appear. So the manager came over and said they were remaking them because they were sitting too long. Offered us wine as a wine to make up for the lack of service or food. Which we did accept one glass. The entree was the Seabass was very tasty. Not sure if we would go back again as we are staying on the ocean side. Not sure if it's really worth the trip. Restaurant was very in Shirley inside so bring a sweater or coat. We were the last ones to leave and it seem like they were really closing down before we had a time to really finish our dinner. We would rate it a seven out of a ten.

Not up to Ruth Chris quality. Had to send two NY Strip steaks back because they were ordered medium rare and arrived well done. Host kindly provided shrimp while we waited for the correction. The petite rib eye was another story. It was tough and grisly and not quality. Told the server, who ignored. The service was generally sloppy. Will return, but have little enthusiasm.

Great ambiance and exactly what you would expect from Ruth's Chris. Tucked away slightly off the beaten path on Glen Riddle golf course, Ruth's Chris OC is a hidden gem for everyone, not just golfers. Kids are welcome and this is a relaxed feeling Ruth's Chris which is great for a beach town. Food (and price) is very consistent with every other Ruth's Chris experience I have had at other locations. Go ahead, make a reservation for a special night out and you won't be sorry you did.

We recently dined here for our anniversary and it was splendid. We shared the seafood tower and it was divine. Highly recommend it. The rosa margarita was very good. Hubby and I both had filet mignon and they were cooked perfectly. We shared a side of creamed spinach which was top notch. I had the creme brûlée and hubby had the chocolate duo for dessert and both were outstanding. All around wonderful meal and we were lucky enough to have Darren as our server. He was the best - never cloying but always around to make sure we were enjoying our meal. We loved it and can't wait to return. It's a bit pricey but worth every cent. This is a great place to go, especially if you're celebrating something special. Enjoy!
