Kim and I celebrated buying a new house by going to Ruth's Chris Steak House. Our reservations were for 7:45 and we were shown to our table at 8:10. We both had the 3-course specials with a salad to start. Kim had the 12 oz. Ribeye and I had the 16 oz. The steaks were wonderful. Kim added the dipping... More

Was in Portland the night of game seven and wanted to watch the game, and have a nice dinner. Sat at the bar and had the Ahi appetizer and a great steak. The service was good and the food sure beat "Brew Pub" food. The wine list is better too. Overall, a great place to watch the World Series, or... More

Went for the first time to celebrate an anniversary. The food and service were great. We had the seared ahi and the crab stuffed mushrooms as appetizers. They we're perfectly prepared and tasted great. This was followed lobster bisque which was equally good. For the entree I had a ribeye and my date had a fillet. Again both were prepared... More

I love a good steak and choose Ruth's Chris for a birthday celebration. Fantastic steak, excellent service and lovely atmosphere. It's old fashioned in a good way. White linen tablecloths, private booths, quiet as a good solid restaurant should be. Not particularly trendy but the menu had some new bright menu options in addition to the best beef.

The happy hour is super , with really delicious and generous servings. Seared tuna, steak sandwich with french fries, good Ceasars salad. Eveything is $8.00.

Our steaks were cooked perfectly. The sides were great. Our Server, Ryan, was excellent. His timing was spot on and humor was appreciated. Overall, it was an exceptional experience.

We celebrated a special birthday with another couple. The table was very nicely set up with birthday sprinkles and a handwritten birthday card. Both were a very nice touch and appreciated. Our server was nice too. Conversational and a pro. However, 80% of our evening was ruined by a large table with 3 very young children next to us. In... More

The steak is great. But totally overpriced. There's nothing that remarkable about the place or the food. Nothing to justify that this is the best steakhouse in town - which it should be given the price. There are definitely other options. I wouldn't go back.

Thank Beering
