I worked in the restaurant business for several years through college and graduate school and, probably because of that, my wife says I am too picky when we go out to eat. Even though we live a few blocks from RC Waikiki, we had never gone. We decided to go for out 20th anniversary. Well, there is nothing to be... More

Love Ruth's! Been to several other locations but this was my first time to this particular location. Ordered the fish special. Delish! Staff was so attentive, and for a great dinner in Honolulu the price was reasonable. Location is central, outdoor seating overlooks the street- not too noisy but great people watching. 10/10 would recommend.

We had an early dinner at the Ruth's Chris restaurant. They had an early evening special that we took advantage of; I had a Ceasar Salad and Ribeye and my wife had a Greens salad Filet Mignon. We both choose the very smooth mashed potatoes. Dessert was also included and I had Mango Sherbert. Everything was quite good, including the... More

What a great steak house. Its class all round with a client service level the best i have encounted. Be careful what you order for appetizer or entree because they can be very generous and excellent. You need room for mains and sides as its really the main game. What a great selection of top end steaks and sides to... More

We dinned at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Lahaini, Maui and was not disappointed. We shared the bone in Filet steak with creamed spinach and delicious onion rings. Robert was our waiter and was delightful! Service & food is always a perfect. We enjoyed Cocktails before dinner with fresh raw oysters! We sat in a warm cozy booth, so delightful! It's... More

Went for the "prime time special", that would be an early seating. The petite filet is the same one they serve later but at a better price. The steak is in the running for the best I ever had, and the side dishes are large enough to share, that way you taste multiple items that are really good. This is... More

Had a few friends together at this place for dinner and it was sublime. Crab cakes for appetiser with huge chunks of crab plus steak and lobster for dinner while I had the tomahawk steak, 1,000 grams which was amazing. Highly recommend this place but bring your wallet

This restaurant is very popular and you need a reservation which we did not have. However, the concierge at Hokulani Waikiki HGV suggested we go at 4:30pm for the Happy Hour during which there are no reservations. We really didn't want to sit at the bar, and it turns out that there is limited outside seating available weather permitting, especially... More

Great happy hour and great dinner. You cannot go wrong eating here. Excellent food and wonderful service!!! I highly suggest making a reservation for dinner. Excellent Happy Hour from 4:30 - 7:00 - better get there early or try to arrive after 6pm and wait for a seat at the bar. Russell at the bar is excellent and remembers guests... More

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.
