Brought my wife here to celebrate her 38th birthday. It was our first time, and our teenaged daughter got so excited when she heard us talking about going we included her in on the reservations. We all ordered the 16 ounce rib eye steak from...More

Why do we love Ruth's Chris? The butter of course. Steak and salad are the go to and I feel that Ruth's Chris is fairly consistent when it comes to quality. Please note that the menus do vary from location to location. What I love...More

Had a really good meal at Ruth's Chris this evening. Our server, Douglas, was excellent. It's hard to pinpoint why the meal wasn't perfect. For some reason, the restaurant just didn't feel like a Ruth's Chris or a steakhouse, which I guess is what threw...More

We purposely dined here because they had a Hula display in the forecourt below. The service was excellent, the steak was amazing, but again like nearly all American restaurants the wine was over priced. I also find it concerning when you order a steak and...More

Outstanding evening - best filet on the Big Island. Great treat for all attending. Gregg (the waiter) was very attentive to all of us. Try this place on Wednesday's when wine is 25% off.

Hi, prices are ala carte, so it tends to be a little pricey but it will probably be the best steak you will ever have, we have eaten at Ruth Chris at a number of locations and the quality of the meal has been superb!

In 1965, Ruth Fertel mortgaged her home to buy a little steak house in New Orleans named Chris Steak House. After investing her life savings, she proudly added her name to the original. That's how the uniquely name Ruth's Chris Steak House was born. Ruth established this unique restaurant with no restaurant experience, but she vowed to treat every customer like a guest in her own home. And she clearly knew what steak lovers wanted - the very best beef. Today, as always, Ruth's Chris serves only the finest corn-fed Midwestern beef available, broiled in 1800-degree ovens designed by Ruth herself. The steaks are served sizzling on 500-degree plates so every bite is hot and delicious. And while steak is king, the menu also includes expertly executed seafood, lamb, pork, and poultry dishes, as well as classic appetizers, fresh salads, side dishes, and homemade desserts. The award-winning wine list features more than 250 world-class international and domestic labels. Whatever the occasion, Ruth's Chris Steak House is the perfect spot to gather. Unparalleled cuisine, sumptuous surroundings and service that's accomplished yet never fussy - these are the elements of memorable special events.
