We haven't had a bad steak at Ruth's Chris and the service is always top notch. We've eaten at all the Ruth's Chris in the Hawaiian islands and several in mainland. You can't go wrong!!

The food is always so amazing here. You are in Hawaii. We come here at least 2 times each visit to the island. The waiters are always so nice. Can't wait until the next time.

We enjoyed our dinners. Great steak! We went early, so we took advantage of the Early Bird multiple course special. They overcharged us by charging us for the included appetizers. We did not notice until we left. Overall, it is overpriced (as somewhat expected for...More

We drove about 45 minutes from Kona but it was worth it. Save money by ordering your meal from 5 -6PM.

Hi, prices are ala carte, so it tends to be a little pricey but it will probably be the best steak you will ever have, we have eaten at Ruth Chris at a number of locations and the quality of the meal has been superb!

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.
