This was the first time I visited a Ruth Chris Steakhouse in a couple of years. I used to rate Ruth Chris tops, but they are clearly being overtake by numerous other first class steakhouses in many cities -- see several of my recent steak house reviews, were all were better than Ruth Chris.

Where Ruth Chris is losing ground is in the all important taste of the food. Steaks are great, always have been, and are as good as in the past -- but, somehow, other steak houses are coming up with more flavor -- both steaks, and (especially) side dishes. Macaroni with cheese and creamed spinach are staple side dishes at steak houses, and this is the area where Ruth Chris has been surpassed the most. Their side dishes are no longer a match for what others are serving.

Service is good -- as always. Same with ambiance. And, the wine selection is good.

A colleague and I dined here for a celebratory occasion. The service was impeccable and the food was beyond outstanding! Very pricy but worth the experience and I am planning another celebratory dinner in May and have already made reservations, can't wait!

There aren't too many choices in this part of the state, but RC is an excellent choice. Its not close and traveling here is a pain in the backroads of rural horse country. i enjoy the fact that its always consistent. If i had to gripe about anything it would be that the staff is too friendly.

The service,food and atmosphere were incomparable. Every aspect of our recent visit from the valet parking to the bread pudding desert were unsurpassed . Yes it's an expensive dining experience but we'll worth it for special occasion

My tastebuds are happy every time I come. Ribeye is to die for, sweet potato soufflé is amazing. Service is superb.
