Pros:
- Hostesses were polite
- Steak was excellent
- Bread was warm and moist
- The seasonal special for $39 was pretty good with the exception of the sides be served at room temp / cold (see below)

Cons:
- No enforcement of dress code (people wearing t-shirts, jeans hanging below the buttox, sports gear, etc.) this was in both the dining area and bar area
- One steak was overcooked and one was undercooked. Sent back the overcooked one it was done properly and returned
- sides including mashed potatoes and cheesy potatoes were served at room temp / cold
- bar was loud in a bad way (people were playing videos on their phones with the speaker blaring so it could be heard across the bar)
- bar has two award lamps at the bar that results in bright lights focusing on those sitting there

Overall, it is a shame that Ruth's Chris has gone down hill at this location and others. With other high end steak house options, we won't be going back after this experience.

Food was delicious as always, plus the location can’t be beat. We both had the petite ribeye and they were cooked to perfection.

We know there is wide variation among Ruth Chris establishments. The staff were very helpful and pleasant and the setting was lovely. But the T-bone was dry and too tough to cut. Other food was ok. Had one appetizer, two main dishes, one side, no alcohol or dessert and cost almost $200.

Birthday for son!
The waiter was right in top of every detail.
I ordered the Cowboy Ribeye. Not even close to the best Ribeye ! Too much grain! Seemed smaller than promoted! Portions of side dishes too small for the price!
Wedge salad was the worst wedge dressing I have ever had. Keep the Balsamic simple !
Not a complicated salad to prepare!
Over priced for what we received!
We did enjoy the experience and waiter , Carlos, was very good!

Very unhappy that we were not told when ordering food that we would be charged 10.00 per each side. My fiancé ordered the filet meal and ordered mashed pot French fries and a salad and endes up paying over 95.00 for his entire meal. We were also a party of 9 but paid separate party of 7 and party of 2 but we were only charged the 18% gratuity. Overall the food was good but not worth a 537.00 bill for a party of 7. When ordering the food waitress should have told us that we would be charged per side. Not to mention she first didn’t add gratuity then when we questioned the bill she added it. So we went from 450 something to 537 with gratuity. Totally insane not to mention the party of 2 that was with us left a 35 tip as well. I will never again go to this restaurant or recommend to anyone. Yes the food was good but no ways worth 537

I got the bone in ribeye and I’ve had it many times there. This one was 50% fat and over cooked. My friend and his wife got 11oz fillet’ mignons. Hers was a perfect center cut and his was the very end cut.. I don’t know how they had the gall to bring these out side-by-side. We are not the type to send things back so we all just looked at each other and laughed. Overall we are Ruths Chris fans but this experience had us scratching our heads. When dinner with tip cost $600 for four people we expect the steaks to be on point. Very disappointing

As soon as we walked in, we were seated right away. The hostess was very nice. Our waiter James was very nice, helpful, and made sure that everything was right. The food was good. First, the filet came out very small and he got a new one made which turned out much better. The dessert was good as well. It wasn’t crowded at all. It was somewhat quiet which was good because you could hear everyone at your table talk. Also, the restrooms were very clean. I love how the valet parking guys hold the doors for you when you go in and leave out of the restaurant.

I decided to go to Ruth’s Chris because it was my birthday and the last time I took my husband for his birthday, it was great! I had NO SUCH LUCK!

I was greeted by two great hostesses who knew it was a birthday being celebrated. They asked me who is celebrating their birthday today because I noted it in my reservation. I was so excited! She walked us to our table and sprinkled rose petals on the table.

When our waiter arrived there was no mention of my birthday. Also, we ordered a bottle of sparkling wine that I HAD TO POUR FOR MYSELF ALL NIGHT!!! Unacceptable!!!

I ordered the salmon...MUSHY! And my husband was supposed to have a medium well steak. He ended up having a medium RARE steak! I showed the waiter and he asked if we wanted to send it back to be prepared correctly. We declined and quickly asked for our check to get out of there!

I have never had a bad experience at a Ruth’s Chris but this by far was the worst birthday dinner ever!!! I will NOT be back again! Oh...I have pictures of everything as proof!

We have been dining at Ruth Chris for years. The prices have always been high but the steaks have been worth it, although the value for the price would be much higher if side dishes were included with the high-priced steaks. Anyways, at our recent visit the noise level of the kitchen was annoyingly high. We were seated next to the barrier which separates the patrons from where the food is set out for the waiters. That would be fine except for the constant clanging of dishes throughout the entire evening. We will likely not return. This noise level was totally unacceptable for such an expensive restaurant and it destroyed the ambiance. I was very disappointed and surprised.

Service was very slow and inattentive. Team of waiter and serving helpers not working as team. Saw other tables get better and faster service.
Steaks were not nearly as good as they used to be. Steaks were thinner and my medium rare was medium. I didn’t send it back because we waited so long for the main course.
Grilled asparagus were good. Lobster Mac and cheese only had a few pieces of lobster on top. No lobster meat was incorporated into the pasta.
Overall this was an average meal with poor service given price point of restaurant. I would not go back.

The night we went was crowded so there was some wait for service. We did notice some tables were getting far more attention from staff than we were. We waited a long time before waiter came back to clear table or bring new drinks. Overall, the food and service didn't live up to our expectations based on past experiences at Pier 5 and the Annapolis Ruth's Chris. Steak was fine, seafood was mediocre. I would try the restaurant again as perhaps it was an off night, but I would go elsewhere if I were looking for a high-end dining experience for a special occasion. Credit to the management to being responsive to our concerns.

Had a reservation for weekend after Valentine's day for quite some time but we were seated in the "overflow" room across the hall from the regular restaurant. Not much ambiance or romance about it at all! Didn't even feel like we were at the restaurant. Food was good, service was good but the experience was lacking. We made the best of it with great friends.

I couldn’t believe how well prepare they were to accommodate our children (7 and 3) with little goodies in the kids menu uncluding fun little bendy ties. Our server, Andrew, was very attentive to the kids. We didn’t like the idea of taking them to a nice restaurant and Ruth Chris exceeded our expectations on a nice dinner with children! The kids loved they food and it was well priced. My husband I also enjoy our meals as well as the cocktails being excellent!
