Best steaks in Chicago – In my personal opinion Ruth's Chris Steak House has the best steaks in Chicago. My mother took me there about 2 years ago for my birthday and I loved it. When I graduated from college in March 2007, my mother said that I could have my graduation dinner whereever I wanted. Guess whom I chose? Their steaks are tender and always cooked just right. Be careful! Do not touch the hot plate. I have eaten at some of the other place such as Morton's but, they didn't measure up. I would recommend this restaurant to any adult that loves a great steak, cooked just right. The atmosphere and staff are great! Reservations are strongly recommended. This is the only steak house that I have personally been to that's crowded Sun.-Sat. So, the next time you are in the mood for a great steak, great service and great atmosphere give Ruth's a chance and you will not in any way be disappointed.
One of the best steakhouses in Chi-Town – If your looking for a place to get a great steak with great service, decor and a nice setting this is a good place for it. Excellent for those special occasions like birthdays and such. Try the New York Strip if your a serious meat eater. Be prepared to spend some serious money though, a New York Strip, Rib Eye, Two glasses of wine (9.50 a glass), The Potatoes Au Gratin and Asparagus set me back $150.00 including the 15% Tip.
Great Birthday Meal – I took my girlfriend there for her birthday and from the beginning the service and food were great.
Once we arrived for dinner, we were seated promptly. For our appetizer we shared the escargot and lobster bisque. Both were fantastic. For our main course I had the rib eye and she had the filet. Both were cooked perfectly to order and the size of the portions were good as well.
For dessert we had a slice of chocolate mousse cheese cake which was decorated with her name and a "Happy Birthday". I know it's nothing out of the ordinary, but always a nice way to cap off a good birthday meal.
Overall, it was a great dinner. Not the lowest priced place in the world, but an excellent restaurant to splurge if youre in the mood for a great steak.
Who needs melted butter – Can someone please tell me why you would ruin a great steak by pouring melted butter on it? If you like greasy meat, then fine, this is your place but remember as the butter cools down you have shiny white grease looking at you. Why, in heaven's name, would you put steak on a pool of melted butter and pour more on top? A good way to ruin a steak.
User review by joeyc154 – Everything about this restaurant is 2nd to none! The steaks are to die for!
Great restaraunt, a few changes needed – My husband and I went to Ruth's Chris for our anniversary. Our server was pleasant and informed us that the steaks are brought out on a sizzling plate, so they cook more after they are brought out. The appetizer list was slim. We ordered Piniot Grigio which was chilled to perfection. We ordered Ceasarsalad, which we split. It was the perfect combination of ingrediants & dressing. I then escaped to the bathroom, which had one of those roller towels. This cheapened the place in my opinion. I returned back to find my huge steak. The steak was wonderfully cooked, and flavored. My only complaint was that it was fattier than I had anticipated. The augraten potatoes and creamed spinach wonderful. For desert we went for the chocolate sin cake with ice cream. They did write happy anniversarry around the plate. A great touch! I will return back to Ruth's Chris.
Yummy – Went here for a buddy's birthday and the steaks were good, drenched in butter and the side dishes were delicious. The steaks did need more flavor but were moist and cooked the way we asked. Service is excellent and reservations are highly recommended on the weekends. Definitely would go back again.
Kickin' steak! – Have been to all the Chicago steak joints -- Ruth's Chris was the most memorable from the hot plates to the perfect "medium rare". Absolutely delicious.
I'll be back – After our first unforgetable steak dinner at R/C this summer, and upon learning we will be back in ORD for the Xmas holiday this year, the first thing my 14 year old son said was " can we please go back to Ruth's Chis"
Yummy – I can smell the melting butter as I write. Awesome filet along with many other dishes. The butter has me hooked, smell and taste. Very good waitstaff, steak and salads. Not the greatest side dishes and would skip those. Everything is ala carte and peas get cold fast and were over cooked, augratin potatoes not very good left those there. Salad was huge and very good. Desert menu is a gota have. I will always visit here but just for steak and a salad been here many times tried almost all the side dishes and not impressed. Service and steak are enough to get me back though.
