“Superb food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

I recently had the pleasure of attending graduation ceremonies at University of Tennessee for my niece. My brother always eats there and the meal was excellent. I did have a minor issue and went directly to the GM and I was satisfied by the caring response.
The food was excellent.

“Superb food, even better service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Going to Ruths Chris is always a special experience. It is, of course, a very high-end (i.e. expensive) restaurant and is generally reserved for special occasions or special guests. The recent meal that one of us had was terrific. I had the petite filet Oscar--a wonderful filet with crab and asparagus topping. Combined with the sides (creamed spinach, au gratin potatoes,and mushrooms), it was a special feast. My guest and I toasted the meal with an excellent Meiomi pinot noir--RC has an excellent and extensive wine list, and the markup is reasonable.

What really made this a special dining experience was the level of service during the meal. Our server, Jim, is a veteran of Ruths Chris and is the consummate professional. In addition to his advice and expertise, we were also visited by the manager a couple of times to make sure that everything was to our liking. The attention, and attention to detail, made us feel quite valued as guests and enhanced the overall experience.

Ruths Chris will remain as a special occasion dining experience for us. It serves that role superbly, with excellent food and a great ambience.

“Excellent dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

I was in Knoxville for a business trip and we went to this place for dining. We had a smaller menu where we could choose between several options. The food and the wine were both excellent. The room was not so nice. Because the place was very busy because of all the graduation parties, our only choice was a cellar room without windows. The places in the main restaurant were way nicer. But the food made us forget about this. I would definitely go there again.

“great food but very expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

We ate there a few weeks ago this is a really nice restaurant, very upscale, i would recommend to dress in business attire no jeans or shorts because it is a very high class restaurant the food was good, the waiters are nice the food was piping hot the steak was even still sizzling when they brought it to us which was good. the only thing is they are very expensive and their steaks and chicken do not come with sides they are separate, so it can be very expensive for me and my spouse it was 160.00 which is very expensive for two people but overall it was good but due to the cost we can only go there occasionally.

We have gone for happy hour and the menu is very good. It is also a nice atmosphere for an evening in the main restaurant area, the steaks were superb, the service is what you would expect. We also loved the view
