Dinner at Ruth Chris in Lahaina was a top notch dining experience. Very professional and knowledgeable service, great steak, and great sides. They do serve their steaks on a bed of sizzling butter which I don’t particularly like myself but otherwise meal was A-1

We had a BBQ shrimp appetizer and filet steaks. We also shared the sweet potato casserole and it was out of this world. Would definitely recommend having the sweet potato casserole alongside your favorite steak. The service was impeccable but not overly intrusive. Indoor dining...More

Service was wonderful. Ambience was just as you would expect... very nice. We had a filet and a NY Strip. Both were very chewy for about 1/3 of the steaks. That was the only complaint. Our salads, sides and desserts were very good.

Whenever I am in the USA, I always check to see if there is a Ruth's Chris steak house nearby. The restaurant at Lahaina in Maui lived up to expectations. Service was good and the food excellent as always

The sunset view was great! Waiter and staff did a fine job. My steak was a quality cut of meat, but under cooked. I ordered medium well and it bled all over my plate, the au gratin potatoes were also underdone.

They work really hard to accommodate whatever you want. They are expensive, but the service is excellent. I'm thinking they would accommodate such a simple request.

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.
