The food at Ruth's Chris is always outstanding. The service was very good but this visit had two minor issues. I had a promotional gift card that had expired 60 days prior. I brought it with me and although it was my fault that I let it expire and had no intent to "ask for the manager" I thought my waitress might have taken the effort to ask the manager if it was OK to accept it toward what was a $400 dinner for three. She did not. The other issue is that when we arrived we were asked if we were there for any special occasion. We told the staff that it was my daughter's 21st birthday. You would think that she might get a complimentary dessert, especially since she was the only one to order dessert. Nope. The last time my wife and I went to Fleming's for our anniversary they brought us a complimentary dessert without even ordering dessert. That being said, Fleming's will be our first choice the next time we have a special occasion dinner.

Dinner was awesome! Decided last minute on this restaurant. Celeste was great! Only complaint is that I did not enjoy my glass of wine, I didn’t like the taste, and I didn’t realize it would be served warm.

This was my third visit to this particular Ruth's Chris Steak House. Normally, I would get the lobster but for the first time I actually tried a steak (New York Strip). It was cooked well, tasted great along with the other dishes especially the lobster macaroni and cheese....that was GREAT! We went there for Veterans Day to celebrate ourselves in protecting our country during our time in the Military. I'll definitely be back again! I want to try the sweet potato casserole. I hear it's delicious! Thanks for the great experience. The Staff were very nice and personable as well. Makes a big difference!

Service was terrible. Was sitting at the table for an hour before we got our salads. They sent the wrong salad dressing my husband finished his salad and still waited longer after that until waitress came back so I could request the correct salad dressing. When we got seated we waited at least 20 minutes until we finally got some water 30 minutes until we got our drinks from the bar. At the end of our check was messed up and that was a whole Other issue. When you are paying the amount of money to eat at a restaurant like this the service should be excellent.

Food was delicious and Brandon was excellent. We enjoyed friends and tasty handcrafted cocktails! Mashed potatoes were buttery and creamy. Filet was cooked to perfection. The crab fried rice is a great addition to the menu. The 59.95 menu is awesome.

 (New York Area)·Dined on October 12, 2017

This was a birthday dinner my wife set up for me. She notified the restaurant when she confirmed the reservation.

We ordered the $110 porterhouse for two. We have had it before at Ruth's Chris and enjoyed it.
The price is significantly higher than our previous trips. The steak was tough, and not at all worth the price.

We also ordered the calamari. It is described as lightly fried but it was heavily breaded, overcooked and hard.

The service was fine for a mid-level restaurant. But not the exceptional service we are used to from Ruth's Chris and have enjoyed in the past. Water glasses were unfilled. The table was not cleaned up between courses. Orders did not arrive correctly (we ordered mushrooms and received mashed potatoes). Issues like those. Not critical, but not high-quality.

This was a Thursday night, so the ambiance was fine. Noise level good and not too crowded.

It didn't matter to me, but my wife was expecting some notice of the special occasion. There was no mention and nothing offered. There has been in the past.

Ruth's Chris has definitely fallen in value. I used to pester my wife constantly about going there which is why we went for my birthday. I chose not to mention these issues during the dinner, since she wanted it to be a special event and I didn't want to complain then. Ruth's Chris let her and me down.

We will find somewhere else to enjoy a nice evening, good service, and a good steak.

Took my wife for my anniversary. The overall experience was great. If I had one complaint is that my wife and I ordered our filets medium. Hers came out rare and mine was raw. For a high end restaurant where the steak is the main item (it's in the name), I expected much closer to medium. Of course they put it back on and it came out much better. They refreshed the side of mash with a new one and the manager apologized. No other gesture was made beyond this, but I suppose I wasn't expecting it at Ruth's Chris. Still, it was good and I would go back. I chalk the steaks up to a mistake.

The food and service were outstanding. Took my wife and son to celebrate his 19th birthday. The hostess and waiter were very friendly and they gave my son a birthday dessert. The steaks were phenomenal, cooked perfectly, we had the 16 oz ribeye and the 11 oz filet. Really like the fact that they're no longer an a la cart restaurant, you can order a 3-course meal, although it's a limited menu. They also had live music outside, but it was a little chilly so we sat inside. Highly recommend this restaurant, but know that it's a high end restaurant so you're going to pay a hefty price.

My wife and I probably ate in at least 50 Ruth's Chris across the country. We try and make going to Ruth Chris a special occasion, we always enjoy, always special! I cannot begin to tell you how disappointed we were, our salad was wilted obviously sitting on a counter for a period of time. The raisin bread was stale and dry, then my 11oz filet came out "the plate was not sizzling only Luke warm, I asked for medium and got medium rare, waiter never asked us how was our food. They delivered mashed potatoes and broccoli and was cold the butter would not even get soft on either. I finally asked another waiter would they get my waiter, waited another 5 minutes before he came. I told him about my food and he said they would take care of. When I got my steak back it was dry (but really hot), my wife was already finished before my steak, mash and broccoli came out. I only ate half of my steak and could not finish it was so dry and now over cooked. We are so disappointed I can't think of going back to that Ruth Chris. It was the worst $150.00 we ever spent. To top it off, the manager never came over. To think it was a Saturday evening and maybe 1/2 the tables were vacant. Sorry, I'm always very positive, not this time
Disgruntled!

The food was generally up to the excellent Ruth’s Chris standards, although the dessert kind of tasted premade and there was a leaf of lettuce that was rather slimy. Also, while both I and my father in law ordered our steaks medium rare, mine was definitely overdone compared to his. Lastly, it took a long time for my cocktail to arrive, even coming after the salad. The lampshades in the men’s bathroom had scratches on them. All in all, a very good meal, and I thought our server Katrina did a very good job. But there were a few letdowns, as detailed above.

If you like consistency then put Ruth's Chris on the list. We seldom waiver from our menu choices here. Small filet mignon cooked to perfection and paired with a nice wine. We generally get the scalloped potatoes, mushrooms, and substitute sautéed spinach. It's a perfect combo. Since it was my birthday, they kindly comped a delicious apple tart with cinnamon ice cream. The service was superb.

The Pikesville restaurant was a pleasant and lovely dining experience. After many happy years of dining at the Water Street location, I was not looking forward to going to elsewhere. Pikesville definitely lived up to what we have come to expect from Ruth's Chris.

Poor service. Wife drank my water bc waitress did not come. Nobody looking to see if we needed service. Would have bought another glass of wine, but lost the craving in the time needed to wait for service. Steak was under cooked. Had to send back. Doesn't appear to be any dress code whatsoever anymore. Prices are still premium. Manager did knock a few bucks off bill, but not the point. There are many other options out there. I remember Ruth Chris as premier dining. I'm not seeing it now. I'm sure I will choose another location for dinner in the future. Ty. Jay R Stine R.N. State Trooper - retired

Great Food, Great Service! Meat was a bit too salty for my taste and lobster was not very flavorful, but all in all a great meal. The presentation of the Bananas Foster for dessert was exotic and fun. What can I say... it's Ruth's Chris Steak House...and that's all you need to know! If you aren't shy about the prices you will be "Wowed!"

When most people think of Ruth's Chris, the common perception is a pricey, upscale steakhouse. While they are certainly known for fantastic steaks, my visit this time was for their more casual Happy Hour. RC has managed to offer what I consider a nicely varied menu and special cocktails at very reasonable prices until 6:30pm in the bar. This includes outdoor seating which is quite delightful in good weather. The service is impeccable, the food consistent to the usual RC standards and even in the more casual setting there is the feel of elegance you would expect here. I highly recommend the Pikesville Ruth's Chris.
