We've noted in other reviews that we're not big fans of chain steak houses, Ruth's included. For some reason, maybe it's the soft sunsets, this one is the exception. It's expensive, but the superb happy hour appetizer menu eases the sticker shock. (Weekdays 5-7).They mix...More

We first went to a Ruth's Chris 8 years ago and thought it the best steak meal ever. We've been three times now in three different locations and I would say that none match the first and the pricing structure has increased out of all...More

It's hard to say anything good about this meal. It was the most expensive dinner of our week, and the least appealing.

Service was excellent, portions were good, we had a nice table. Perhaps I associate RC with business dinners at conferences in vegas. That said, those without those preconceived notions will enjoy it

Went there on a Monday. What a great thing to do! Ask for an outside table. You could pay twice as much to see a luau and have lousy food. Instead, there is a hula show that starts at 7 PM on Mondays and was...More

We come to this Ruth Chris's all the time. Why? Because it never fails to please. Great service. Decent prices. Piping hot steaks cooked the way you ask. Sides that are worth the visit by themselves. Perfect.

Hi, prices are ala carte, so it tends to be a little pricey but it will probably be the best steak you will ever have, we have eaten at Ruth Chris at a number of locations and the quality of the meal has been superb!

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.
