Something happened around the time of the Hilton transition to Ballast. Service slipped and the food began to disappoint. I had high hopes for tonight’s dinner because this would be my first at their new location, which I’ll admit was beautiful. Unfortunately, it will likely be my last visit. My parents and I had reservations for 3 at 7:30 for my Dad’s birthday. We arrived at 7:25 and was told “about five minutes” for 30 minutes. We were finally seated at 8:05. Then we placed drink orders about 5 minutes later. We finally left at 8:30 without the drinks we ordered and never had an opportunity to order our entrée so no food either. Through all of this, the hostesses were left to excuse the delays themselves without a single peep from management. When I expressed my frustration to one host, it was suggested that having a party of three was to blame (which is apparently more difficult to seat than a party of four). Save your money and eat at Mellow Mushroom downstairs. I highly suggest the Funky Q. Chicken pizza. Somehow being over dressed while having delicious pizza and cold beer made it that much better. So I guess I should thank you Ruth’s. Your poor service turned a terrible night into a good night. Tldr; don’t do it.

When we arrived at the restaurant at 7:20 p.m. We were instructed to go to the bar until our table was ready. At 7:55 p.m., I asked about our table.The host said it would be a few more minutes. At 8:20, we were led to an inside table with the explanation that the outside dining area was closed. I expected our reservation to be fulfilled. A “manager” appeared and apologized. He said we’d have to eat indoors. My wife and I don’t eat indoors because of COVID fears. I asked again to be seated outside. He then assigned us a table outside. After another long wait, a server came out and we ordered an appetizer and wine. It took about 20 minutes to receive the wine and appetizer. We then ordered dinner. By then, it was 8:50 pm. The food (which was very good) arrived at about 9:30. She left saying she’d be back in a moment. We discovered we had no salt or pepper on the table. When she didn’t return in about ten minutes, I went to the host and asked if someone could bring us those condiments. Then, a new waiter appeared and brought them. It was almost ten o’clock by that time and our food, while initially very hot, was cooling rapidly. Our server returned. We ordered dessert and coffee. We rushed through the dessert because our 3-hour parking limit was approaching. The check was $253.59. I gave her my VISA. By that time, it was 10:20 p.m. We had been there over three hours and had been the victims of slow service. I presented the parking ticket to the host. She said it would cost us and additional $2.00 for parking. I felt that after spending $253.59 and receiving poor service they could at least absorb $2.00 for parking. Angrily, we walked into the parking deck where the attendant put two dollars into the gate. We left. We will not be returning until the restaurant hires a staff capable of serving within a reasonable time.

All four of us got one. The food was superb, cooked to perfection. The service was equally as good. Courteous, friendly and efficient. It is however a bit pricey, especially in their wine selections. Overall a great experience, especially for our anniversary.

Ordered bottled water and a cocktail. Appetizer came before the water even got there. My cocktail was the wrong cocktail and I had to send it back for the correct one. So we basically ate the appetizer before we had anything to drink. Was told that the bar was “busy”. Not very attentive server. Not an experience worth the price.

One entree wasn't delivered as ordered (way overdone) and it was promptly and courteously replaced with one that was perfect. All in all a very pleasant experience and we'll definitely be back for more, perhaps out on their lovely patio with a view of the Cape Fear River and Battleship Carolina.

The staff is very nice. We went for brunch and were a little disappointed. My crab cake Benedict was just ok; the crabcake was flat as a pancake and the English muffin was burnt, the poached egg was done nicely, though. My husband’s steak and crab Benedict was good; steak cooked perfectly but again, with the flat crabcake Overall, this is one of the nicer restaurants in Wilmington and it seems to be run well. I think the food could be prepared with a bit more attention to detail, especially because it’s a more expensive choice for a meal.

It was so slow. When I ordered a drink, it came out wrong. The waitress rudely said she didn’t make it. When the new drink was finally delivered to the table, it took a half an hour and it was watery from melted ice. The waitress said it was made just like the first one (as if to say I was maki f it up.) The food came out cold, and steaks came out rare not medium as we requested. It was truly one of the worst dining experience we have ever had and we go out to eat frequently.

Not too crowded. Barbecue shrimp appetizer was out quick and delicious! Drinks took a bit long. The issue was our steaks. Took an hour to get our entrees! My husband ordered a New York Strip medium/rare. I ordered a 8 oz filet medium/well. The temperatures were done opposite and my husbands was medium well and mine was medium rare! We had waited so long he ate his steak and some of mine too. He was a bit disappointed. Our bill for two of us was 269.00 which is a lot so we expected better service with our meals. We did mention the steak problem with our server and she was apologetic but no manager came over to make it right.

It was 45 minutes until our drinks were served, granted it was a Saturday evening. We had to request utensils and the complete drink menu could not be located. Additional ice requested came in a child’s plastic cup! The food was quite good, however. Not the level of service we would expect of a Ruth’s Chris restaurant.
