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.

We celebrated the birthday of a special friend on a week night. Our food delicious; everything and everyone was enjoyable. Our table was ready just as requested. The evening was smooth, quiet and we thoroughly enjoyed the time to visit and celebrate.

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!

Always love to dine here for special occasions and just special nights. Was very disappointed that we were seated ata two top outside next to a large group. The table was too small for dinner, it was too loud to have a conversation and there were a few bigger tables around us that would have been more comfortable. Kind of ruined the evening we anticipated. Food was great but overshadowed by e fact that our table was so crowded.

My wife and I were seated on the patio. It was ok but lacked the ambiance of the restaurant. It was a little chilly with the breeze which would have been easier to plan for had we known we would be on the patio from the reservation. My wife was cold for most of the dinner which made the night less pleasant.

The place is amazing every part was incredible from the food to service they make you feel like your special. The was breathtaking I started with appetizer the voodoo lobster was 22 dollars but is worth it and literally came out with 5 minutes of ordering the steaks we order were made to perfection and tasted perfect I know they are expensive but it's worth what you pay.

Ruth's Chris puts butter on their steaks. Everything is delicious! Our server, however, only turned his head to me when speaking while I was ordering. I made the res. in my name. But, hubs got all the attention. Annoying...even to hubs.
Okay. Tomahawk rib eye was amazing, the dog chewed on the bone and loved that too. The veggies were delicious, and the fried lobster in a tangy sauce was of course, the best. We also had berries in cream for a light, sweet taste.
Everything was fine, except, I was non-existent.

Me and my wife went in to have lunch for our 2 year anniversary and we had an amazing experience. The service was great the whole time we where there from explaining entrees to helping to pick the perfect bottle of wine for the occasion. The place was very clean and there wasn't loud noise bothering us at all. We needed the experience that was provided from Ruth's Steakhouse. I will definitely go eat there again. I will also tell all my friend about it.Thank you very much
