Food is always great. Service was slower than normal and not as attentive as past visits. Also they usually decorate the table when we announce a birthday, but they didn’t this time. Staff at front was also not as inviting. Great restaurant, but seems like complacency is growing.

This was a dining experience. The atmosphere was wonderful and our service was great. We did not feel rushed to eat and we were allowed to sit enjoy our food and our company.

I loved and and cannot wait to go back again.

Amazing from beginning to end. Nice reception and fast seating. Server Andrea impeccable service. Alexander Valley Cab with stuffed mushrooms to start. Both petite filet medium rare with grilled shrimp topping. Lettuce wedge salad, steak house salad and sweet potato casserole added, too. A management surprise anniversary gift of chocolate covered strawberries. And server Andrea added anniversary gift of strawberry and fruit topped pastry that she prepared just for us. Had to take some home because just so much of everything that could not leave behind. Thanks to all for a wonderful meal and personal touch evening

We only go to Ruth's Chris on special occasions. This was a birthday celebration and it was as good as it always is. We arrived early and were seated immediately with personal attendance. Thanks for setting it up.

Our only complaint is we were seated right next to other diners (shared a bench, separate tables), which seemed odd because there were only three other tables with diners. Food was delicious!

The Ruth's Chris Steak House - South Bend is our least favorite of all the Ruth's we have dined at throughout the United States and we definitely will not dine there again. The service was far below what we normally experience at other locations of this restaurant group.

Butter! I know you are famous for your butter, but this is so over the top it is absurd. AND, when asked to cook a steak without butter, it was still done - with the waitress wanting to “sear it off”. That is not acceptable. Creamed corn and wild rice as sides to a fish dish sounded good - but what came was a mixture of corn and a lot of butter with a very small amount of wild rice mixed in. The shrimp appetizer was delicious.

We don't go out very often for some personal reasons, but when we do we would like it to be a great experience. Not so much this time:
After arrival, we were pleasantly greeted and seated at a table along the main walkway, with plenty of other tables and booths available. Our location appears to have been determined for the server's convenience. No big deal, because this area of the facility was not very busy. After some drinks, we received our appetizers and salads, then WAITED FOREVER for our main course, due, we were told, to a large crowd in the meeting venue in the basement. We had a nice little chat while waiting, but were very hungry by this time. My Filet Mignon was pretty close to the medium rare I ordered, but my wife's salmon was way overcooked, despite asking for a rarer piece of fish. The manager and the server both apologized and gave us some chocolate-covered strawberries, but for $100+ per person (one alcoholic beverage each), we certainly expected better. Our average grocery bill for the week is usually less than what this dinner cost. We are both good cooks, and I might have done better at home, even buying top dollar beef and fish from the butcher's. Live, and Learn.

I found the dining area to be extremely dark. If I hadn’t looked at the menu online ahead of time. I wouldn’t have even been able to read the menu.

The waitress we had was awesome. My steak got cooked to much which never happens and she was so apologetic. Then we were so full that she gave us a free dessert to take home and it hit the spot. Thank you

We mentioned in our reservation that we would be celebrating our anniversary. We showed up to everyone congratulating us and they even had a personalized note in the menu. We had a great meal as always, and ended with a complimentary dessert. You can't beat the service and attention to detail here!
