We waited 45 minutes for a table even though we had a reservation. We were celebrating a special occasion and the long wait certainly put damper on the celebration.
Our server was very good but I ordered the Ruths’s Classic meal which included a vegetable. I asked if I could substitute a baked potato. She said it would be a $4 up charge. When the bill arrived, it was a $9 up charge!
We won’t be going back

Food was very good. Filet was delicious along with the garlic mashed potatoes and creamed spinach sides.
Service was solid, April was very pleasant and attentive.
Somewhat disappointed with the seating; smaller table in center of room.

Always like the way the steak is prepared. Had a Cowboy Ribeye Rate +. I think it was cook to perfection and very flavorful. The cheesecake was great and taste of cheese very evident. Like the ambience, quiet and gave us good quite time to interact.

We go to Ruth Chris often and this was by far the worst experience! Had reservations, but got seated by the bar. Was surrounded by loud, drunk people. Was celebrating our anniversary and the waiter was quick to get us food and out of there. Ordered salads first and while eating them our steaks came out. We were rushed to eat our food, the steaks sat and rested which means they got dry and overcooked. We were still eating some fries when our waiter asked if we wanted dessert. We were in and out in less than 45 minutes. Worst experience ever and threw away hundreds of dollars of money for an awful anniversary dinner. Won't be going back.

This is a great restaurant to facilitate a special event or business dinner. The service is always excellent and the menu is filled with delicious selections. Recently we took one of our special business associates here and he was really impressed. The location is convenient and we look to Ruth's Chris when we want a special dining experience.
