Having been to many Ruth's Chris locations such as Baton Rouge, Myrtle Beach, Houston even Aruba this was a disappointing visit. My expectations were high as I have never had a bad meal at any location. Decided to take family for a birthday celebration. We all had the 12oz fillet and every steak seemed dry. Not the usually sizzling on... More

I ordered the steak salad. The steak was fatty, the food took a very long (at least 20-25 minutes) to go. I was apologized to several times; however, never offered any money or compensation. i would not go back for the cost

It's disappointing to hear that you left with a poor impression of our restaurant, Angela. A great meal starts and finishes with great service, and it sounds like we didn't quite deliver on that. So that I may personally apologize and do what I can to make things right, I do hope you'll consider giving me a call at your... More

Ordered a burger and fries, threw up 4 hours later. Terrible customer service from manager when he was informed. He acted as if I was lying since no one else made the same claim. Disappointing to say the least for a Hilton property.

About as good as it gets, but be prepared to spend a bunch. Steaks are excellent and the spinach side dish is to die for. Service is good and the ambiance is nice.

We've eaten at multiple Ruth's Chris restaurants and the service was so bad it was shocking. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left, just horrible.

We had made reservations on open table and thank goodness we did. It was crowded! We were seated promptly and greeted by our server who was attentive and helpful all evening. We ordered salads and our entree with accompanying veggies. Everything was delicious and hot. It's a great spot and consistently good.
