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!

Great vibes, food portions were great except the kids steak. It was so small it looked like a meatball. The mashed potatoes lacked seasoning. Service was good but getting food, drinks and the check were extremely slow. Overall for my first visit it was great.

For the most part the food was excellent as always. Unfortunately the asparagus was over cooked, but everything else was great. The only issue I had was our service. We were seated 15 minutes before anyone came to even give us water. And when they did, it took five different time with people asking us if we wanted bottled or tap water before it came. Our server had several tables in a different section and did not check on us regularly. I had to go to the hostess stand to ask someone to come over to get more drinks. I’m sure he felt he might receive better tips from the other tables he was serving which is why we were not attended to regularly. That is unfortunate because I absolutely value someone that takes care of me and will always take care of them. I also realize that they may have been understaffed and understand the stress everyone is going through right now. However, if I’m going to spend $300+ on a meal, I’d like to feel like I mattered. The service was just not the usual Ruth’s Chris standard that we’re used to and it was disappointing. Other than that, everything was great.

Had a late reservation but ended up going early and sitting in the bar area. Ended up getting the best service with Michael (with the deep voice! 😂) and the booths in the area give you a bit more space from the other patrons.

Food was very good.
Oysters from Long Island, ribeye steaks and mushrooms were cooked perfectly.
Server Mary was efficient.
A little pricey.
