Amazing!! My boyfriend and I went for his moms birthday a while back and absolutely loved it so we decided to go for my birthday this year and Im soooo glad we did!! They had the table set up so nice, the waiter was so on point, there any time we needed him. The steaks were GREAT and the lobster bisque was just right! I would absolutely recommend it to another person!!

Well worth the price. Was initially turned off as this is a "chain" but the steak was better than a lot of the independent steak houses in the area. Highly recommend.

It's only beef, but what good beef it is!!!!!!!! – I was very hesitant to spend $35 to $45 for a piece of beef as I can cook it myself, but I have to say that the beef at Ruth's Chris's Steak House is worth every penny.

We started with stuffed mushrooms and fried oysters, which were both outstanding. The ceasar salad was very good, not excellent, but good and one served two no problem. I loved the ribeye (although it really does float in butter when brought to the table) and the smell of butter is pretty pervasive, so you'd better like butter!!!

The sides are to die for. We had creamed spinach and au gratin potatoes, and both were the best I've ever had.

I have to say as someone who bakes, that the dessert didn't win any awards. I ordered the banana pie which was bland, bland, bland. The carmelized bananas were good, but the filling and crust had NO flavor. Our server, Jen, was excellent and when she asked how we liked the desserts and I said I didn't, she quickly removed it, asked if I wanted anything else, and took it off the check. My friend had the molten chocolate cake which was good, but not great.

I do have to say that I'm sititng here thinking about going back again, so the food leaves a memory. I will go back, maybe not too soon as it is a pricey place but worth the dollars for a special night out.

Sophisticated American chain serves up corn-fed USDA prime cuts and New Orleans-style appetizers and sides. – In Short
This offshoot of a popular New Orleans hangout for politicians features decor of dark woods and comfortable booths, with a separate bar scene. Choice cuts of custom-aged beef arrive in sizzling butter on 500-degree plates. The menu also offers chicken, pork and seafood entrees along with Creole appetizers like shrimp remoulade. Family-style sides include gargantuan onion rings, creamed spinach and various styles of potatoes. Traditional homemade desserts like cheesecake and bread pudding conclude the meal.

Amazing!!! – Been here a few times and love it. The food is of exceptional freshness and quality and the service is nearly faultless. The staff is extremely knowledgable and very approachable. The waiters we've had have been very helpful with suggestions and accomadating to my picky requests. I love that you can add things to your entree (like crab legs or lobster tails). Managers are present in the dining room every time we've been, which is rare even in restaurants of the same quality. This place is truly worthy of 5 stars. Some of my favorite dishes are the calamari, the bone-in ribeye, creamed spinach, and the apple tart. But everything I've ever tried has been wonderful with the exception of the crawfish appetizer (not my thing). I highly recommend Ruth's Chris.

It doesn't get any better! – I am a picky eater and a critic of service. I have dined at Ruths Chris several times and have never been dissappointed! The food is top notch and so is the service. Staff is very friendly and polite. I order more than I can eat because the food is so good I don't want to miss anything! If I want a memorable experience I go to Ruths. They know how to take care of their guests. I highly recommend this dining experience. Leave room for dessert!!!!

False Prophet's – Ruth's Chris is an elegant, ambient, comfortable restaurant. However, as far as best steak, not really. Don't get me wrong the steak was delicious, but i have had comprable, and better. Side dishes were wide in variety, and very tasty. Appetizers are outstanding. The atmosphere is excellent. The service unbeatable. wine selection is great. Excellent suggestion to win over a date. But bring your visa card, and maybe even a loan specialist because the prices are obscene, and i'm not sure they take american express. I will definately be going back soon. Paul B. - Bristol

Impressive – The filet I ordered was pretty high quality, but I was mostly impressed with the service. Not only was our waiter fabulous and on top of his job, but there were several other people who were around to make sure that our meal went very smoothly and that we were satisfied, without being annoying in any way. The waitstaff was able to unobtrusively guide us from course to course, leading to an incredibly satisfying meal. I would recommend going to this restaurant.
