I've eaten at Ruth's Chris many times and although the filet I had was good, it did not meet the expectations to which I am accustomed. Of course, this will not prevent me from coming back.

Awesome service & great food on a Thanksgiving Holiday. We had steaks which were great, but the turkey dinner looked amazing as well.

White chocolate bread pudding was to die for. Best thing we had & everything was really good.

When scheduling our reservation at Ruth's Chris I expected everything to be top notch. We certainly weren't disappointed. The service, the food, and the ambience were all that was expected and more. So if you're wanting a special experience for a special occasion Ruth's is over the top. I'd like to mention someone that made the experience wonderful. But it was everyone.

Start with outstanding service, great wine selection, and a broad menu that meets anyone’s expectations. Save this for your most special dinner outings, either personal or business and they will never disappoint. Certainly pricey but the experience is a much higher scale than other establishments.

We try to eat here when in S Bend for a football game. Jim is our favorite waiter. My husband loved his veal steak special & loved the bread. I always get the filet Oscar style. It could be an ounce smaller for me. Great meal!

My wife and myself were celebrating our 56th wedding anniversary. The staff were all very friendly and hospitable. However, both my wife's fillet and my strip steak were sub-par. There were areas of both steaks that were too tough to be eaten. When paying top price for food, one expects better, more easily consumed product.

RC across the country is typically excellent. my first visit to SB store, the event was sub par. food was OK, not great as usual. bill was wrong, overcharge, group setting up for a late night birthday event 3 feet from our table using facetime to discuss table set up with others (something you would expect at a sports bar, not RC). made having a conversation difficult. Happy to pay the premium prices for RC standard quality and environment, this one was not up to RC's typical high standards.

As always, this restaurant lives up to the hype! I know “it’s a chain...blah, blah, blah”, but this competes with the steakhouses I’ve enjoyed all through the US like Smith & Sons, Prime 112, and Cut!

We were seated in a booth. Very dark. Told waiter he said they would take care of it. They never turned up the light. Put extra candles on the table. We had to use our flashlight on our phones to read menu and pay bill.
We had to wait longer than expected for our first round of drinks.
Glad the food was great or we would not be back.

We ordered the seafood tower and were greatly disappointed. It was not fresh, some of the crab even seemed discolored. Challenge was that once it was put on our table, no one stopped to see if we needed anything. It was very expensive and was not at all worth it.

I’ve been to Ruth’s a few times. They know how to prepare a steak, sides are excellent, on this visit our server was fantastic. There’s just not a lot of personality to the ambiance, and it’s always seems to be a bit overpriced just because they CAN be overpriced.

I don’t know if that makes sense, but it’s how I’ve felt every time I’ve visited, regardless of the location I happen to be visiting. Still a place worthy of a visit if you’ve never been to an “old man” steakhouse and you want to visit one.
