For one of the best steaks in town, you have to splurge and enjoy dining at its finest. Never disappoints. Every selection I have had, has been outstanding. Pricey, but not only is the food spectacular but the service is unmatched. Oh, and live entertainment.

I like eating in the bar because the bar food menu is great and the martinis, perfect. I particularly like the Ahi Tuna, Mussels and shoe string french fries. During happy hour menu is discounted. Go early as the comfy bar fills quickly with mostly locals.

I love the early bird dining at Ruth's Chris East Bar. The food is delicious and reasonably priced at Happy Hour. Excellent music on the patio, and lots of people having fun. Get there early for a seat. I recommend asking for Cheri Weissman, one of the staff, who treated my group very well. She is friendly and efficient.

Even in the East bar for happy hour? That's what I thought. Although the servers and bartenders are top notch, my food wasn't great, not even good. My steak sandwich was 5 tough small pieces of steak in a bun, and the french fries tasted like they were from frozen. I should have sent it back. My husband's tuna was... More

Wednesday night is a must, not only for locals, but for visitors, too. Locals Night Out is from 5:00-9:00 pm in the courtyard. The entertainment (Jones and Company... Best on Emerald Coast... R and B, smooth jazz...encourages the audience to get up and move to the music) began at 6:00, but you don't want to wait too late, otherwise, you... More

The atmosphere and the food at this Ruth Chris's steak house are wonderful. All of the wait staff and reception personnel are professional and well dressed. Service is impeccable. I have never had a bad experience at this restaurant. I would recommend reservations.

We frequent Ruth Chris whenever we can. It's our favorite restaurant so wherever we are, we dine at them when we find one. The food was as expected here but the service was slower than I've ever seen. The cherry on top was that the hostess was rude to the point of being deplorable. We love RCSH but this will... More

My husband took me here for my 60th birthday! He informed the staff ahead of time. Everyone went out of their way to make this a night to remember! We were seated in a private dining room that was so beautiful. Our amazing waiter had the saxophone player come in and play happy birthday for me. The food was fantastic!... More
