Started with the seafood tower. Usually get warm drawn butter but had to ask for it and it came without a flame to keep it warm. After that, it is customary to receive a warm wet hand towel to wash our hands but that was not delivered. The rest of the service came as expected. Steaks were well prepared. Sides were warm and tasty. Server was charming but a bit clumsy.

Have been to Ruth’s Chris in many locations across the country always with great food and service.
Our evening was disappointing because the service was poor and one of our steaks was over cooked. It seemed like our waiter was preoccupied and we rarely saw him throughout the evening. A few simple requests were forgotten and we had to request again.
We wanted to send the steak back after waiting for our waiter to reappear we gave up and ate it without really enjoying it.
Most likely will not go back here.

Everything was spot-on. Food was presented and cooked perfectly. Michael, our server, was attentive and knowledgeable. He also did a dynamite job in making table-side bananas foster for us. A lovely evening to celebrate our anniversary.

I have a really horrible memory when it comes to names. But our waiter was absolutely amazing. He was courteous, charming and witty 😊. We enjoyed our food. We got the 3 course meals and added the asparagus and sweet potato casserole. My husbands favorites were the potato stack and the sweet potato casserole. It was so good that I only got a spoonful since my husband ate it all😩😩. We will definitely come and visit again!!!!

Ruth’s has never let me down. Yes the price is higher than other steakhouses but you get what you pay for. Like I have said to others, if the food and service is excellent, I will pay extra.

It was a really cold inside and with it being August we just were not prepared for the temperature. Other than that everything was wonderful. I'll bring a sweater next time.

The food never disappoints and the setting/location is very nice. On our visit 7/21 our server was wonderful but the bartender who was supposed to support the serving staff was slow, slow , and slow. The restaurant was less than half full and it just took too long for drinks to come out. Less jabber and more production would probably fix the issue.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Ruth’s Chris and overall enjoyed our experience. Grey was our waiter and was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The food was very good. We started with the lobster bisque and the romaine wedge salad. My husband ordered the petite ribeye and I the petite fillet. Both were cooked to our specifications and came out sizzling. We had mashed potatoes and creamed spinach for our sides. Because it was our anniversary we were served complimentary strawberry shortcake which was yummy. We will be back!

I would definitely recommend. It would have been better if the blinds had been up, so we could see the water...But everything else was excellent.

Although we love to visit different Ruth Chris while on vacation each year. We never usually leave with any disappointment. Steak and chicken were delicious. However, our entire table of salads were not fresh and included several brown pieces of lettuce that weren’t up to standard we expect from Ruth Chris. Our entire family makes this a tradition each year and always look forward to the night out.

My husband and I dined here for our anniversary. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Service was excellent, food was amazing. Some would say it’s a little pricey, but considering the service, the atmosphere, and food; I think it was well worth it. Already planning our next visit.

Unfortunately my dining experience at this Ruth’s Chris was not very pleasant. The food was generally good but the service was painfully slow. It took about 20 minutes for my salad to arrive. I would’ve been more understanding if the restaurant were busy. However, they had just opened for the evening.. my drinks were never refilled. The wait staff just gave me awkward glances and stares the entire time. I felt very unwelcome. I have no plans to return to this establishment or Wilmington, NC for that matter.

Early Fathers Day dinner Friday before. Steakhouse is located in the Ballast Hotel. They validate your valet parking. Formal atmosphere but dress code relaxed. Wait staff excellent from waiters to servers to bus boys, etc. Had Oysters Rockefeller appetizer. 6 good sized oysters-excellent. Had rib eye for meal-cooked as ordered-again excellent. They serve all steaks on a plate heated at 500 degrees so stays hot while eating. Wife had a prosciutto salad and said one of the best salads she ever had. She had petite filet and loved it. We ordered one side each and the portions are large. Prices are high but worth it for special occasions and steak lovers. They have two different three course meals you can order-one at $39.95 and one at $59.95 depriving on what main course you order. Otherwise menu is al la carte. Daughter and boyfriend visiting in July and we plan to return.

The steak was good, but I didn’t think it was worth the price. The sides were just mediocre to me. Overall, I think you can get similar or better food for much less. While the staff was attentive, it took over two hours to complete our meal.
