Oh my we didn't know that they would have live music and he was jamming. Our steaks were cooked perfect, and we have sides for days to eat. They made our day very special.

Husband and I walked over from the Home2 a week after Valentine's Day to celebrate the holiday. Was a slow Sunday night, the service was a tad slow as well, which is why the 4 star rating. Food was great, servers professional. Over all, a great place to celebrate a special occasion.

Well, our dinner was nothing short of amazing.. filet and lobster, lobster Mac and cheese wine and cocktails.. all super tasty. But... our waitress was..awkward? She just made us both feel really uncomfortable, so much so that we wanted to get up and leave. Of course we didn't.. and the rest of the wait staff was great. Not really sure... More

For one of the best steaks in town, you have to splurge and enjoy dining at its finest. Never disappoints. Every selection I have had, has been outstanding. Pricey, but not only is the food spectacular but the service is unmatched. Oh, and live entertainment.

I like eating in the bar because the bar food menu is great and the martinis, perfect. I particularly like the Ahi Tuna, Mussels and shoe string french fries. During happy hour menu is discounted. Go early as the comfy bar fills quickly with mostly locals.

I love the early bird dining at Ruth's Chris East Bar. The food is delicious and reasonably priced at Happy Hour. Excellent music on the patio, and lots of people having fun. Get there early for a seat. I recommend asking for Cheri Weissman, one of the staff, who treated my group very well. She is friendly and efficient.

Even in the East bar for happy hour? That's what I thought. Although the servers and bartenders are top notch, my food wasn't great, not even good. My steak sandwich was 5 tough small pieces of steak in a bun, and the french fries tasted like they were from frozen. I should have sent it back. My husband's tuna was... More
