Welcome to Ruth's Chris Steak House. As founder Ruth Fertel used to say, "If you've ever had a filet this good, welcome back." We take steak seriously, but we're also serious about making sure you have a good time. So you won't find the stodgy, uptight attitude you might find at other steak houses. Our SouthPark location, created in the classic Southern style, features a spacious dining room and private dining areas. Surrounded by dark hardwoods and artisan tiling, you'll feel as if you're back in New Orleans. All beef is USDA Prime, prepared in 1800 degree broilers and served on 500 degree plates, and all accoutrements inspired by Ruth's New Orleans heritage. Let us know of any specific requests for an evening with that special someone, and we'll take care of the details. Life's too short to eat anywhere else.

As usual the dining experience was outstanding. The food to perfection as well & service . The owner was in the restaurant it was a pleasure meeting him . This is by far hands down the most desirable 5 star restaurant in Charlotte & believe me we have frequented ALL of them !

We were disappointed the last time we ate here, but gave Ruth Chris a second chance. This time was worse than the last. We paid high prices for mediocre food. The service was nothing special and alittle lacking in attention to detail. we had to ask for extra service ware, refills on coffee, and butter for the crab and lobster. So very disappointed!

Ruth's Chris has truly fallen off of the steak radar.
There are better places and better value if you want a really good steak in Charlotte, NC.
I will not name any of these places, people can easily look them up, but needless to say, I've eaten my last meal at a Ruth's Chris

It was great! We didn’t like the stuffed mushroom appetizer as it was very garlicky and peppery, but the manager changed it out and the creminis were wonderful! A very nice evening all around!

Great food at Ruth's Chris-- liked the summer trio deal-- nice assortment. We were celebrating our 1 year anniversary. They used to offer an anniversary glass of champagne but looks like that is a thing of the past...best steaks in town-- very tender.

I had never been to this location. I sat at the bar and was served by Kristen. She was wonderful and provided excellent top notch service. The food was delectable and just what my palate needed for the evening. This location provides an ambiance perfect for winding down after a hard days work. I will definitely revisit soon.

We can make a better steak at home. Buy at Reids grocery and either grill or iron skillet. We had a good time and the lump crab appetizer was worth the trip. My NY strip was way over salted, but I didn’t complain. Wife’s 2 lobster tails were Red Lobster quality and not up to our expectations. Were planning to go to The Palm for their King crab legs but wife changed her mind.

My husband and I were celebrating his birthday. We arrived 10 min late for our 5:30 reservation but we were seated immediately. Our server, Veronica, was nice and knowledgeable. I wanted the Chef’s Summer Trio feature that I saw online but it was no longer on the menu. Veronica offered to ask the Chef and he graciously agreed to make it for me. I was so happy and it was delicious!!!!

The restaurant is beautiful and the service was good. I was very impressed to see the manager walk around and help out. He stopped by our table to inquire how everything was going and even got drink refills for us. Kudos to him for jumping in and helping the servers where needed to keep up the Ruth Chris level of service.

Thank you Ruth Chris for another great special occasion experience.

An amazing experience and night out at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Southpark! My date and I were greeted with a smile from Jackie and the staff exceeded expectations for the remainder of the evening. Michael was a great host and server for the evening with great recommendations and wonderful rapport. My date especially loved his Godiva Chocolate Martini! The managers, Ben and Jeremy, made sure we were well taken care of throughout the night and the entire staff was there to make sure all our needs were met, thanks to Kayla, Lexine and Alex K. Great food, great service and a memorable night!

A friend was in town for a conference and also celebrating her 70th Birthday. This location is conveniently located not far from home. My husband and I had dined here once before and had a positive experience. This time, our meals were average, the cocktails weak, and the servers were somewhat inexperienced. At least twice, the server tried to take our guess’s plate while she still had her fork in hand. We were a bit disappointed and most likely will not revisit.

The food at Ruth’s Chris was outstanding. We had the 3 course summer classic which consisted of ribeye steak, starter, a side, and dessert for $59.99 per person. Our server, Michael was very personable and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is definitely peaceful and great for date night or anniversary.

This place is getting worse and worse! Dinner is good and taste as it always does , but the service is getting worse by the visit. It’s obvious that the employment bug of the great economy has bit this place. The staff is very nice, but lack the training to wait on a group that spends 100+ per person! I can only blame this on management. They need to fix it or this place will continue to lose quality customers! They will go across the street to Del Friscos .

Please fix it as we love to go to Ruth’s Chris across the country!

We celebrated our mom’s birthday tonight. The chilled seafood tower was super fresh. The Summer Mixed Grill was delicious and filling. Mom was served a beautiful dessert complete with a birthday song. We enjoyed Michael’s service, Peter who delivered our food, as well as Kepler who carefully packaged our leftovers. Overall a great experience for the mom’s first visit, and a great way to celebrate.

Great meal! Ruth Chris can do a steak. We both had the Petit Filet, which was perfect. My husband said that Ruth Chris has the perfect wedge salad. "The blue cheese dressing is famoninial."
The red grapefruit greyhound drink was really, really good, too.

Family of 4 had dinner on last night of restaurant week. Regardless it’s a lot of money to spend and when we asked for all of our leftovers to be boxed up, we expected it. Next day for lunch, missing 2 steaks!! When paying $150 for dinner, we wanted our leftovers! We will not be back!

Had visited the Ruth's Chris in downtown Charlotte, but thought I would try the other location, especially during restaurant week in Charlotte. Much closer to my home base, easier parking, (valet if you want), food just as good, if not better. Great wait staff. Steaks as usual, delicious. Love their shrimp cocktails. Will return.
