Went there for Easter dinner with a friend. Mitchell our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. Jonathan the busser was very friendly and attentive to our every desire. The food was the best I've ever had. This was an awesome experience and will go there next year.

My favorite place for steaks has let me down. Ruth Chris was my Gold Standard for steaks. I was with my family from out of town and we always go to Ruth Chris to have a great meal. The steaks were not tender, but were tough to chew! We had two Ribeyes and two Filets. The sides were ok but... More

The restaurant is your typical Ruth's Chris. However, the hotel is out of Benghazi...towels piled up in the passageways, food trays sitting in the passageways for over 12 hours...dogs walking through the passageways....horrible. Fleas in the rooms!

It has been years since I have eaten at a Ruth's Chris Steak House but after this visit I am not going to wait long. I went with a group of about 12 people, and we all had a great time. The waiter was wonderful and intuitive. I had a pretty simple meal request -- and when I asked if... More

The black and bleu salad is my default lunch at Ruth's Chris. Great luncheon steak on a fresh salad with bleu cheese dressing. The service as always top notch. Get one of the tables in the alcoves for a private meeting.

I enjoy Ruth's Chris overall. I've been to a little more than half of their locations in the US. This is my second visit to this location.

From the excellent service to the wonderful selection of steaks and sides, this national restaurant is the perfect selection for a celebratory meal.
