The atmosphere is nice for a date, good and dark, I ordered the fire roasted tomato crab soup, that was very good. I ordered a ribeye, fries and Brussel sprouts... the ribeye was ok, nothing special... They in theory cook their steaks under high temp, the steak was ok, the line of fat was disappointing compared to a true grilled... More

Drove all the way from Little Chute, Wi to Middleton, Wi to try this Ruth Chris Steak House for my husband's birthday. CLEARLY not the same Ruth Chris Steak House we tried when we were in Chicago for my birthday. Service was MUCH better there. The server in Chicago was efficient, but she wasn't a pest. We had 3 different... More

16 of us ate the Ruth's Chris that night. We sat thru a financial planning workshop. Our waitress was exceptional. She was well trained, discreet and knew the menu. Over the entire process she did an exceptional job. First class fine dining. The presenter paid for the meal and I actually gave her a tip for the excellent service. We... More

We love Ruth's Criss for their steaks. Just remember the sides are to share. The drinks are great mixed as they should be and for the price that is required. You pay for the experience but once every few months it is well worth the price.

It is Restaurant Week in Madison which has happened twice a year for the past several years. I made reservations for dinner with my two adult children to enjoy a nice “swanky” dinner together. What a mistake. I have been to this restaurant several times in the past but its been a couple years so thought I would give it... More

Was there for a meeting so had only 3 choices. The Walleye was one of the very best fish dishes I have ever had. They also had a respectable beer selection and the sweet potato casserole is like candy.

I had the filet mignon, fingerling potatoes, and farmer salad. The salad was unique and delicious - the greens fresh, the cheese nice and flavorful and the dressing yummy. The steak -- I ordered it medium, and it came out medium rare. Not a big deal as I like it that way, but just keep an eye out for steak... More

This was the third year I took my aunt to Christmas Eve dinner at Ruth's Criss Steakhouse. The previous two times (and other times we've eaten there) it has always been a delight. This time was different. It started with my table request, made over a month ago. I asked for a specific corner booth (or any booth at all).... More

We have eaten at a number of Ruth's Chris Steak Houses over the years and while this one was no bad, it was not up to the standards that I have come to expect from them. My wife had chicken and I had a bone in ribeye. The food was very hot as is their signature. The chicken was great,... More

Been here multiple times, always disappoints relative to the brand and experiences we have at other locations. We went there on the Friday after Thanksgiving and the meal was not good, service was awkward. Waitress would repeat our order back as if we were in the drive through. Never seen a high-end restaurant do that. The filets were what I... More
