We were in Indy for a trade show and took our employees to Ruth Chris to celebrate Christmas and a great year. All of our meals were really exceptional, as was the service. Tina was our server and she was wonderful. Attentive, kind, and on...More

As always Ruth Chris never disappoints! The bar tenders are so of the best in the business. Seeing a familiar face at the piano every time I visit makes me feel at home. Keep up the good work!

We came here for dinner for my wife’s birthday. I made the reservation online (which was a smooth and simple process). I made the reservation about 2 weeks ahead of time and several time slots already had no availability so make sure to plan ahead...More

Ruth’s Chris is always a mainstay for us in Indy. It is pricy but you can share large portions and split if you are portion conscious like us. Valet is a plus! Nice to drive up and go in! Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes casserole and...More

Had a large group dinner here. The cheese trays were good but, the crackers were cheap - like Ritz and saltines. Very odd. The salad dressing was bitter. The steak was very good and cooked well. Members of my group were also very pleased with...More

Dinner was great as usual. And as usual, too pricey. The bone-in filet was as tasty as I have ever had. My co-workers had the ribeye and said it was very good as well. But just wished it wasn’t so expensive. I could eat there...More

Visited Indy for a Garth Brooks concert. I never dined at Ruth Chris because it's expensive.Glad I did. The brunch was definitely worth it. The buffet had anything you would want.

To some degree, I do get jaded with "steak" restaurants. This is NOT one of them. Yes, the steaks (ribeye, filet, NY strip) are very special but so are the seafood choices, salads, vegetables, mashed potatoes, and the SERVICE. I was not expecting to be...More

This place is not bad just a bit underwhelming for the money you pay. I had the bone in filet Oscar style and it was somewhat bland...I suspect the beef was Choice not Prime? The Bernaise sauce too was bland. My Wife had the standard...More

Ruth's Chris was lovely. Quite expensive and lovely service. Would recommend a secluded table. The food was great here!

They really don't have a children's menu. However, they have many delicious non-steak options (the salmon is amazing) and the serving sizes are generous enough that a child could share any entree.
