This marks my 3rd time to a Ruth Chris Steak House at different locations and this one is my favorite. My steak was spot on searing in it's juices and tasted great. My wife opinion was not the same. Her steak had gristle and was so so. The service was top notch and very helpful and always around. Our cost... More

We needed a decent steak fix and Ruth Chris Steak House provided it in spades....The steak was huge, well cooked to our request and service was fast. We ordered a couple of sides as well. We shared a steak which was enough BUT it was a bit of butter overload. The portion sizes for the sides were decent and tasty,... More

This was a great experience. We had made a reservation for my sons birthday, but arrived early. The hostess was amazing sat us 45 minutes early. Our waiter James was all about customer satisfaction. He was helpful in choosing our food and making our son's birthday special. Even the bus boy Isaiah made a wonderful impression on us. The bill... More

We visited Ruth's at Mauna Lani for the second time and we loved it again. Winner, winner steak dinner. Can't go wrong with the sweet potato casserole or the garlic mashed as sides. Great atmosphere, always good.

We stopped in for the happy hour deal and we were treated very well. The food was excellent and everything explained very well by Gregg, (we reserved online for tonight and asked for him to be our waiter, and luckily he was working). We liked it so much last week we came back in tonight. Great deal to check out,... More

I normally do not write reviews but I felt that I had to say something about this restaurant. I have been to several other Ruth Chris restaurants and this is not even comparable to those. From the moment my family and I walked in the doors the staff was cold and rude to us. We have three smaller children, 10,... More

No one does a steak better than Ruth's Chris and the one in the Shops at Manua Lani exceeded my expectations. Great steak, super friendly employees and wait staff, wonderful atmosphere. Location is great for shopping before or after, too.

Description
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.
