Ruth's Chris Steak House - Saint Petersburg
Ruth's Chris Steak House was founded in New Orleans, Louisiana by Ruth Fertel, a single mother of two who wanted a better life for herself and her two sons. She purchased "Chris" steakhouse in New Orleans which had been operated for 38 years prior. She changed the name to Ruth's Chris when a fire forced her to move from the original location.

Fantastic service and food!
Food was awesome and service was great! Will be back again!
Birthday and very pleased.
The steaks were cooked perfect and the sweet potato casserole was delicious !
This was our second visit in the same week.
In my opinion Ruth Chris is overrated and over priced. But then again it is a chain so it’s understandable. Only came because we had gotten gift cards as wedding gifts. I wouldn’t go back. I’ve had better steaks at better steakhouse/chop house.
The food was good. We indicated on our reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary. We do not usually go to such expensive restaurants, so our anniversary dinner was special for us. The table was set with rose petals, which was a nice touch. However, we were seated in the front of the restaurant, facing the bar with sports playing on the TV in front of us. There was a large group who gathered around the bar awaiting their table (for the entire time we were there). They were very loud and I felt like we were in an Applebee's, not a top-notch restaurant. The restaurant did not seem busy so it was confusing why a couple celebrating their anniversary would have been seated in such an unromantic spot. Furthermore, the waitresses and waiters did not even seem to notice or apologize for the interruption. I even had to ask one waiter to repeat his question, because it was so loud, I couldn't hear him. I was very disappointed to drop over $200 on an experience like this. Although it wasn't the waiter's or waitress's fault, they should have acknowledged the situation and offered to move us somewhere else. We will not be visiting again.

Great food and service-celebrated our anniversary and was recognized buy 4 different staff members.
Our Anniversary dinner was amazing!
Jody is one of the best at the St. Pete location. Very attentive without being pushy. My husband’s steak was a little over done, but everything else was great.
Great! Great good and service
Excellent food and service. The staff made me feel special on my birthday.
Au gratin potatoes were lumpy. Should change to slices like normal. Service was excellent. Really catered to us. Enjoyed both waitresses.
We had fabulous service for our special evening. The food was not as good as other smaller, private steakhouses, but it wasn’t bad. Definitely higher end of a commercial chain restaurant food. Gary and nima made the night fabulous and made up for the food!
Great food and service
Everything was delicious. I had the filet shrimp with mashed potatoes Caesar salad and lobster bisque. The filet was perfectly cooked and the lobster bisque was the best I’ve ever had . The service was impeccable.
Overall a wonderful experience for a steak house with great steak and excellent service. They are consistent, across the board. You know what to expect, and the quality is superb. The "corporate varnish" leaves something unique left to be desired if you are looking for something of a localized experience, but that would come at a cost of consistency, I think. Whenever I am looking for familiarity Ruth Chris is good choice.
Always enjoy a perfectly cooked Filet and a nice bottle of vino!
Enjoyed every minute of it!
Not sure what happened but that was the driest and toughest filet I’ve eaten. Was looking forward to a good steak and fell flat.
Great time! Our server was awesome!
Great Mother’s Day dinner - always have a great experience
Service was excellent and our meal was Amazing..
It was very good and I had a good time the food was delicious
It was such a nice Mother’s Day experience for me. They checked all the boxes of a 5 star restaurant. Great area.
Graduation Dinner. Food was great. One steak was undercooked to what we ordered.Sides were a lot smaller than I remember
Ribeye is my favorite! Crab cakes and the spicy shrimp are great appetizers! Always fantastic!
We went for an early Mother’s Day dinner last weekend. Just not as good as it used to be. My filet, which I ordered medium, was rare on one end and medium well on the other. I decided to add the crab legs to my steak and they were a huge disappointment. Tiny, and over cooked and dry. Definitely not worth the EXTRA $32! The best best part of my dinner was the Creme Brûlée- other than that- not much better than an average steakhouse.
Great food and great service for a graduation dinner!! Highly recommend :)
Great food and service as always. Pre fix menu was a good value.
Dinner with friends! Great staff, atmosphere, and food!
The waiter was just ok. Did not bring fresh glasses when we brought a new bottle of wine. Severed olde fashions with crushed ice. Just not up to par for Ruth’s Chris steak house.
The service at bar booth was bad
The server was obnoxious and a turn off
They pulled out the stops to ensure my parents' 66th wedding anniversary was special!
Thank you all so much!!
Good steakhouse that never disappoints. No need to add toppings to the steak I enjoy it just the way it comes with the seasoned butter on a sizzling hot plate! Always great service.
Service was beyond excellent, and the food was delicious
