New Years Eve we enjoyed the filet special with two 5 oz lobster tails and it was delicious. The steak was tender and full of flavor, but the key is the steak temperature was perfect. The filet stayed warm though out the meal. The lobster tails were tender and delicious. Service was great. What a meal to end the year.

Always a great meal. A few specials, but all of the regular menu at non inflated prices. Busy but not rushed.

Excellent service and nice LOOKING gristly tough porterhouse. Comfortable venue and nice crowd including dress up and families. Second and our last visit to this location with similar disappointment.

We decided at last min to stop for their fabulous Seafood Tower. It was crowded ; no problem to sit at bar to eat. Great food! Excellent service--we had 3 people serving us. Did not care for the jumbo shrimp & they told us when they are that large, they tend to be a little tough & took it off... More

Ruth Chris Steak house.. Fantastic fish selections and generous portions to the point of being REALLY surprised at the size of our Black Grouper entrée.. Their " 3 course" entrée menu items are a nice value. $ 55. or even the $45 Steak/shrimp were great Salad or soup PLUS dinner and then a mini-cheese cake dessert. All in all,, another... More

The food is good here, but for the money, you can do much better. The atmosphere is stilted and generic -- you could be in Des Moines or any other mall. The manager probably has a day job at a funeral home.

After having a bad experience a few years ago we stayed away from Ruth's Chris. This year our children wanted to take us there for our anniversary which is in November. We were seven people with one being a Vegan. The staff had change and we had a wonderful time. They were very accommodating and took excellent care of us.... More

I ordered: Blue Crab Cakes appetizer Petit (6 oz) filet and shrimp (6 large) My wife ordered the Au Gratin Potatoes for us to share. The traditional bread served as a pre-dinner appetizer was good - say grade B. I expected fantastic A+ bread at a high-end steak house. I was disappointed in the bread. Two large crab cakes arrived... More

Gracious service beginning at the bar and continuing to the table, We chose to go to the bar which was interpreted as an error in seating promptly, leading to our drinks being compd. A leisurely ordering process followed by a wonderful appetizer and finally our entre. Nothing was rushed or hurried, each service was delivered in a timely manner making... More

Crab and avacado appetizer was fabulous! Lobster bisque always a delight! Chilean sea bass was cooked perfectly! Tender flaky and wonderful! Creme Brule was delicious! Service a bit slow but all was good!
