Hostess was very friendly. Went above and beyond. Went for Thanksgiving dinner. We go every year. Service was good. But food was ice cold and they ran out of some of the items. They tried to remedy the situation, but for $300 for a party of 4, there shouldn’t be any mistakes, even when they’re not used to handling the changes in menu on the holiday. Happens almost every year. But we go back so can’t be that bad.

Steak was excellent as usual. Little disappointed in the Turkey dinner. Although they did give you a doggie bag with some turkey/stuffing/cranberry relish to take home. I just didn't care for the turkey gravy, white not brown, and the stuffing was large pieces of cut up bread but was not all that cohesive to eat! So I learned my lesson and will get steak like I normally do.

The food wasn’t great for the price point. Spent $200 (including tip) on 2 people and only had 1 alcoholic beverage each and no dessert. Also, the sides weren’t that hot so when you moved them to your plate the got cold quick. Several better options in the Tampa Bay Area for steak and seafood.

The steak was excellent. Truly a carnivore's feast. The Pinot Grigio I was served was absolutely delicieux avec un bouquet et un gout incroyable (merci).
The wait staff are a class act.
Your prices are high but the food is fine fine fine!

 (Tampa)·Dined on October 30, 2017

Had a very nice time for a birthday dinner with my father. Food was excellent overall, but my wife’s steak that we ordered Med. was closer to Rare/Med. Rare. The suggestion from the server was to cut it up and press it down on the hot plate. What? When that did not work she took it back and they put it under the broiler again, which worked, but she just had a cut up $60 Filet and it just was not the same as it being cooked correctly the first time. All the other food was perfect so I understand a one-off issue with meat temperature, my issue was with the solution. The server actually did a great job in all other aspects and made my Father’s birthday feel special. This was out third year in a row for his birthday and look forward to next year. My wife said she will order Med. Well next time, but should we have to do that to get a Med. steak?

Usually very good, everything was off last night. Steak was under cocked and not true Pittsburg. Had no flavor, not real hot, Luke warm. Waiter was a little slow on the wine pours. A new and very young Hostess, dressed down the busboy in front of us, very unprofessional. Just an off night. I still recommend, I am a regular and this is the first time in about 4 years we had a small issue.

Expensive for what you get. I like other steakhouses better. A glass of Faust cab was $25, you can definitely get this cheaper elsewhere. The steak was good, but not my favorite. I had the bone-in filet for $65. I remember it being better a few years ago. All sides are a la carte. A baked potato is $9.50! My friend asked for medium well and got medium rare. All in all, I expected more.

We celebrate life at Ruth's ... and have since the early 70's in Metairie, Louisiana. Consistently good everything-- soups, salads, of course steaks, etc. always an excellent wait staff. Our son in law got down on vended knee at Ruth's in front of s full house and proposed to our daughter. We celebrate moves, retirements, birthdays, engagements, business deals, Valentine's, you name it. After 9 pm the place gets hopping and you feel the night life energy. Dinner at Ruth's is always fun st home in Tampa or anywhere we go.

This is a steak house - I ordered a filet medium-well - first it came back rare, then I returned it and it back charcoaled. the manager came back with free mashed potatoes, but really, there were only two of us and we already had two side, so, this was an empty offer. They had way too many wait-staff. It seems none of them knew who had what table, so we had our water filled constantly by 3 different people, but had to remind our initial waiter for my wine, which I strongly believe was not the correct wine, but as a glass, he assure me it was - first shiraz I have ever had that was sweet.

I have been to many Ruth's Chris - I will not come back to this one.

Ruth's is always a delight. Succulent food, impeccable service and luxurious ambiance. Just the buttery aroma when you walk in the door is worth the visit. This is perhaps the best "Chain" in America.
