They added a New England Clam Chowder which is excellent. I love their steaks but their lobster tails are also tasty. The service by Jessica was outstanding. Their overall service was excellent. Very good atmosphere for casual and upscale diners. Jessica and her staff were very attentive to our needs and I appreciated her wonderful customer service. Parking is either... More

My cousin, her daughter and I all had a splendid dinner here last Monday evening. Our cocktails, meal, and service were all incredible. All of our steaks were cooked to perfection, the ahi tuna appetizer was delicious, and our sides were the perfect compliment to our steaks. If you love a cocktail, we highly recommend "The Final Word"...oh my, it... More

The food was awesome! Our service was good but it was slow, not because they were not hustling it was because they were understaffed! We would order something and it would take a long time for them to bring it to us, but it was not the waiters/waitresses fault they were running because the restaurant was packed! The restaurant needed... More

We were very happy with the food and service at Ruth's Chris in Lafayette, LA. The food was all timed properly and at perfect temperatures. Our waiter and all the support staff extremely well trained and upbeat. Loved the secure, well lit level parking lot, too.

When I pulled up I saw a building that was in the middle of a strip mall. At first sight I said to myself, could this really be a RC? Once inside the service was good and food excellent. Ahi entree was awsome. But unlike some of those really cool RC locations like Vegas or DC this place was just... More

We had a great evening at this lovely restaurant. The service could not be faulted and the menu selection was full of delicious choices. Amongst the 6 of us we shared a few appetizers, before having great steaks and sea bass which were all cooked to perfection. The New Zealand Savignon Blanc topped it off. We throughly enjoyed our evening... More

This is a truly great steak. I have had steak at many a great steak house and not many compare to Ruth Chris. The staff is knowledgable about celiacs disease and helped me stay gluten free. Thanks
