We have been here several times for just the happy hour. They have a separate menu and servers. It's sort of a quick and less costly way to do Ruth Chris'. Our server was Anthony and he's a real pro. The happy hour menu has some good deals beside the reduced wine and beer pricing. The steak and mushroom kebab... More

We were invited to Ruth's by an insurance salesman. When we entered it smelled like a locker room. My friend also noticed the smell and said she thought they were covering up something. I don't know, but the smell was worse in the front rooms, and wasn't so bad in the room where we were seated. We ordered the petite... More

We made a reservation for 7.15pm days in advance and when we got there we were only offered a table at the bar. I refused this and they got us a table pretty quick. Bad start to the evening. Once sat down everything became normal for Ruth's. I go to the Houston Ruth's all the time and it is one... More

Went here with my wife during a big pharma conference. Had high hopes for this place knowing that Texas is famous for steak and Ruth's seemed to have a good reputation. When ordering they put a lot of effort into explains what well done or medium etc means. However it took 3 attempts to get my wife's well done steak... More

Venue. Italian decor. Tastefully dark and clubby. Many private small seating areas with good spacing. Service. Flawless, professional and unobtrusive, but attentive and appropriately friendly for us.

I enjoy dining at several of the Ruth Chris Steak Houses around the country. Unfortunately, this was not prepared as well as I am used to at other Ruth Chris Steak Houses. It was ok, but not worth the money it cost for fine dining. Maybe another time. I know they can do it proper.

Staff was great and very helpful. Food was great. I would recommend the swordfish. If you have never been there be prepared to spend more than you would at most places but it is well worth it. It was our first visit and we will definitely go back again.

I had a very limited time for lunch so I ate at here as it was connected to the hotel. The staff was friendly and my waitress brought my ticket with my lunch as I requested. The burger patty was juicy and the cheese was not a melted mess. It was sturdy enough to see it was cheese. The fries... More

Ruth's Chris Steak House was founded May 1965 in New Orleans by Ruth Fertel. Our specialty is aged corn-fed USDA prime beef, broiled in a trademark 1800 degree oven and served on a plate heated to 500 degrees to ensure the steak is sizzling hot. We also offer fresh seafood including live Maine lobster, lobster tail & Atlantic salmon. Private dining rooms available for groups of 10-100.
