The food and service were excellent. The ambiance was hampered by dismal weather (which of course, the restaurant can't control) and increasingly loud patrons.

The value is, quite frankly, overpriced. Without cocktails or desert, we spent over $250 on 2 appetizers, 1 house salad, 2 petite filet entrees and 3 vegetable side dishes. While we appreciate excellent food and service, the cost is simply prohibitive.

Lamb chops and steak were delicious. Cocktails were lacking alcohol. Service was a little slow because place was busy.

we ate at Ruth Chris last night in Wilmington, NC. Food was excellent, our waiter Gray was outstanding, and as always, the bar is great! It is a high end restaurant which we don't visit often, but always enjoy it when we do. Go treat yourselves!

We wanted a nice meal and Ruth’s Chris has always been consistent and very good. This location lived up to our expectations. Service was excellent as was the food. They added a three course option that I really liked. Well done again.

Great experience as always. Service was great. Noise level from the bar area spilled over into the main room making it had to hear the server and others. Otherwise, it was wonderful.

Took my bf here for his bday. He had never been before. We ordered the Tomahawk. It was fantastic. Seasoned to perfection and medium. For sides we got mushrooms and the lyonnaise potatoes. Both were great. We will be back.

Server was outstanding. Steaks and sides were delicious and perfectly cooked. Drinks were very tasty. We got the banana cream pie for dessert. Sadly, it was one of the blandest least exciting desserts we’ve had.

All in all a great experience but they need to up there game on the dessert.

Not up to normal level. Issue with kitchen experience. Shrimp -no salad dressing on salad and not served with lemon. Caesar no croutons and served anchovies hot not warm hot -what? Not a good smell. That was crazy. Fries made well before steak - just barely warm and not fresh. Not close to Ruth’s standards. Steak was good but come on.

The dining experience at Ruths Chris is always a special treat. Service, food, atmosphere -- the whole package is there. My husband ordered lamb chops on this particular night, and he simply raved about them. I had the petite filet, prepared just as I ordered. Accompaniments were all wonderful, especially the fresh Mozzarella with Heirloom Tomatoes in a balsamic vinagrette. All of this and a gorgeous sunset over the Cape Fear River! Looking forward to the new location coming soon.

I love Ruth’s Chris but tonight wasn’t amazing. It was just OK. They felt understaffed but had a full team out front. The food was yummy but my steak wasn’t the usual soft melt in my mouth cut. Felt more like something I could have gotten from Costco. It was just meh tonight.

This dinner was for our 30th wedding anniversary . It could not have been more perfect. Everyone was so nice and we did not feel rushed at all. Food was perfect and the nice touch was happy anniversary written on our desert plates. Every employee was above and beyond in their customer service!

Was a little disappointed that our Anniversary celebration was not acknowledged even though we entered this info in the online reservation. I would also say that the lettuce in the Wedge salad was not up to Ruth Chris’s standards (it was old). However, our waitress Becca was very good and we appreciated our interaction with the on-site manager as he checked on us.

Great food as always for a special occasion. Was a little disappointed with the amount of time it took to get our food. Especially the salads as those are remade. We noticed people who came in after us got their food before us. But even with that we were happy as always with the steaks!
