Everything here was absolutely amazing. Only criticisms I can really give to them is their poor plating. It was dull with no care on how it appears. My date ordered a petite fillet, and it arrived on a very large plate, alone making it look insignificant and sad. However, the cook on all the food was stunning and everything was flavorful with great service. I will, for sure, be returning.

Our Waiter is the Best! He is an old fashion waiter with skill, respect and class. He is half of the reason we visit Ruth's Chris.

We enjoyed the ambiance and the music in the bar. The food was excellent, especially enjoyed the seafood ice tower. Server was well trained. Noise level was perfect for a normal conversation.

We thought we would give this location another try since the last time we came our service was poor but food was good. Unfortunately it was the same thing. Our apps came out in a timely manner and were very tasty, however it took our dinner much longer to come out. And when it did come out my much awaited ribeye was not served. The server said it was on its way... 10 minutes later when everyone at the table was well into their dinner my steak arrived. It arrived undercooked. Goes to tell you that they forgot the order and tried to rush to cook it! I sent it back as it was not eatable and the server agreed. The manager and chef were notified however no one came out to apologize for their incompetence. I guess this was normal for them. We proceeded to order dessert trying to make the best of our family dinner. Well they got that wrong too and had to remake it. In the end I would not go there on a weekend night. Maybe under staffed and under trained. Sadly They just don’t have their stuff together. Not expected at a restaurant of this caliber. Good luck! We will NOT be returning!!

I love this place - not pretentious at all. Hanging with customers at the bar during Happy Hour or dining in the private dining room, all is great - food, service and ambiance! Hope I can schedule many more evenings here!

We were a party of two that was sat in a small room with a very large party! When we asked to be seated somewhere else. The manager was very rude! We were told all the tables were full. But we could be seated at a high top table in the bar. We said NO. We are out for an expensive meal that will not be eaten in the bar. 30 minutes into our meal he offered us a more appropriate table for two if we still wanted to move. He never comp’ed anything to offer as an apology.

The food was great as always. However, we made our reservations through the open table app. When we got there we let them know we had a reservation. I pulled the reminder up on my phone as we were not on their reservation list. One employee working the front said “They look like honest people.” Which just came off as weird. They found that we did have a reservation, they just didn’t get it on their list for the night. We got a table with minimal wait time, but at a restaurant like Ruth’s Chris, I would expect if I make a reservation they would be prepared with a table when we got there.

This was our friends Holiday get together, finally, which we were very much looking forward to. As usual, our food was great: shrimp and lobster appetizers perfect, steaks cooked to perfection and very tasty, and wine and drinks excellent. Ruth’s wine list is the best in the area. Unfortunately, the service we received was the worst we have experienced since they opened. Plates were not cleared before next course was delivered, Wine was not poured after first glass and was suspect whether he was going to pour the first round. We will make sure we request anyone else as server our next visit. Service put a bit of a damper on the evening for us which we simply do not experience at Ruth’s.

Food was great!! My daughter recommended this restaurant, but our waiter “Jim” never brought us the lobster voodoo we ordered only the crab cakes and other food we ordered and left us waiting over 10 mintues for my husbands second beer and my water! But other then that everything was great!

It isn't that the food isn't great, because it is. But in our estimation, things have slipped just a little bit. I ordered one kind of steak and received another. The hash browns weren't quite crispy enough...Service was just fine...but something isn't just right.

Enjoyed another great meal with wonderful service from Lindsey. We always ask for a booth in the bar as we really like the vibrant atmosphere of the bar. The lobster voodoo never disappoints, and steaks always cooked to perfection.

Busy for a Monday night. Service was slow in getting dirty appetizer plates removed. Once we all ordered desert and finished our birthday girl was told she gets a free one so we had to box it up. Nice gesture but try telling us before she ordered desert.

Ruth Chris is fantastic, one of our favorite restaurants. Been to 5 or 6 different locations but I think the South Bend location is our most favorite. We look forward to returning many many times. Just a great place. Go Irish too!!

Classic steakhouse dining that can border on the “fine dining “ category. One of the best higher end restaurants in the South Bend area where the noise level allows you to have a table conversation with your table mates. Their prie fixe menu value is very hard to beat.
