We had a group of 12 and our evening went perfectly. The staff is some of the best I have seen. I would suggest the seafood tower as a appetizer for you table. No issues at all with any of our food.

I was so very disappointed in my meal at this establishment. When you go to a steakhouse and order a filet mignon, you do NOT expect to receive it spoiled!!!!!! I ordered the prix fixé choice on the menu, a six oz filet and grilled shrimp combo. When I tasted the meat it had a strange taste and odor. Confirmed... More

This is a great meal with top notch service. It is at the top end of the price scale, but it is worth every penny. If you want the best steak and service in town and you don't have a budget limit, you cannot go wrong here. Every steak is a winner and you will die for the lobster mac... More

Professional staff and service. The location is consistent with others I've been to. Steak quality is very good and was cooked to perfection. Appetizers were very good. Had the hash browns as a side, too greasy for my taste. Excellent choice.

My son took me here as a thank you! Loved the valet parking! Seated right away for our 7:00 reservation. Very friendly and efficient servers! Food was good. Only bad thing the plates sooo hot that food kept cooking so steak got a little over done.

For our 24th wedding anniversary, we decided to try the newly remodeled downtown location. The hostess promptly seated us, as requested in my reservation on Open Table, by the window in the bar, a lively area with the crowd of usual patrons coming and going. It's a great place eat while watching people and the games on the TV screens.... More

1st Class as always. I believe this is the 18th year we've celebrated our anniversary with Ruth's Chris. Tonight, do to circumstances beyond my control, we had a 9pm reservation due to last minute arrangements. We went ahead and arrived at 7:30 thinking we could hang out at the bar until our table was ready. I let them know when... More

Steaks were very good. I had the T-bone, cooked just how I like it and great flavor. The calamari appetizer was very good, the sauce served with it was a sweet n sour flavor, very good. Staff was very professional.

Thank Tidex16
