Enjoyed a holiday meal at RCs. Staff and food were excellent. Service was very friendly at the same time very professional. Took advantage of outside seating and enjoyed the open space. Very pleasant experience, would highly recommend this location. One of the advantages is that it is off the main waterfront.

We frequent this restaurant regularly but this night the service (waiter) was absent. We had to go into the restaurant twice just to find him. Very disappointing.

The food here is much better than the Tampa location, service was very pleasant and helpful (young man named Austin from Virginia).

The liquor selection in the bar was a bit junior varsity with most of the better whiskeys missing, which made this bar the same level as a Chili's.

Although, the wine selection was decent.

No parking validation for the garage across the street.

Guten appetit!

Visited with friends for a birthday celebration. The food and service was a bit off from what we have come to expect from Ruth's Chris. We understand that the virus situation has made it difficult on the service industry, we will be back and look forward to the wonderful experiences we are accustomed to.

We went to dinner to celebrate my 60th birthday and had an amazing time. Jason our server was very attentive and provided excellent service. There was social distancing and all of the staff wore masks. The food was delicious. My husband loved the T-bone steak he ordered. We always enjoy our time here and will continue to visit! It was a memorable celebration during these challenging times.

Granddaughter’s 18th Birthday.
No one asked us if we were celebrating. Hostess was rude. We made a reservation, tried to sit us at a table by the hostess station. Requested a table by the window, she refused said they were all taken. No one sat in them while we were there. Food was amazing. Not our first time.
