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.

Ruth”s Chris again did not disappoint. We always walk away feeling like we just ate one of the best steaks ever. Our server was at the top of her game tonight. Great service and very personable. In and out in just a little over an hour.

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!!

Everything was delicious. The stuffed chicken breast (I know....it’s a steakhouse but I don’t eat beef anymore) was the best I have ever had. The beef eaters also loved their steaks. Great service 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.

Way too expensive. The prices on the website menu were not the same as the real menu.
1st glass of wine was fine, and second was much less filled. I pointed it out to the waiter, and he just said the first bartender must have had a heavy pouring hand. Not cool. For $11 you should get a decent size glass of wine.

The food was just OK nothing too special. Ordered the bone in New York strip which was very fatty for a NYS. I would recommend ordering the steak one temperature lower than you would normally Because what's the excessively hot plates And sizzling butter My steak cooked From medium rare to medium fairly quick. The sweet potatoes were very good same for the Brussels sprouts

I have also left a review on Trip Advisor where I have over 200,000 readers. We LOVE going to Ruth Chris for any reason. We especially appreciate our server, Jim, who remembered us from last time and made our dinner special. Thank you, Jim! We hope to see him again next time we are there.
The food is always perfect and the service is impeccable. It is my favorite restaurant on Earth and we travel globally!
