I want to complement Anna Shumate for arranging an outstanding event for our 49th Anniversary. She was a delight to work with and her attention to every detail was impressive. I have hosted events in Washinton, DC, Paris, Tel Aviv and Dubai and have never gotten more professional service than that provided by Steven, Garon, and Josh. Many guests complimented... More

While on business travel, I went to Ruth's Chris to enjoy their Happy Hour burger. It was $9 and excellent. Happy hour wine is $7 per glass. Very busy during this time, so plan to arrive early.

We appreciated Ruth's Chris being open on Thanksgiving Day. We selected the fixed price Thanksgiving menu, enjoying seafood gumbo, smoked turkey with dressing, sweet potato casserole, creamed spinach, and pumpkin cheesecake and ice cream for dessert for $39.95 per person. Everything but the dressing was delicious; the dressing was gummy in consistency and not very flavorful. We waited over 30... More

Steak was incredible. Sides were mostly awesome but the brussel sprouts were a little dry and lobster bisque wasn't great, but even these two things didn't ruin the experience.

We always have an amazing experience at Ruth's Chris. They always meet and exceed our expectations. i have tasted the most exquisite food and wines there. If you are going to go out why not go for the best possible experience. With Ruth's it is most definitely the reason that we go out in the first place.

The food, service and atmosphere are consistently excellent. The steaks are aged and prepared to perfection. The main meal (appetizers, steaks and sides) is so good, it is often hard to find room for dessert. But do try - the desserts are wonderful too. This is a great place for family gatherings, but it is truly a place for a... More

Just got back from Vegas and paid $85 for a steak at a renowned Chefs restaurant it was fair. BUT we did dinner at Ruth Chris the other night and had the Ruth Chris Classic dinner for $44.00 it was wonderful. Everyone had a delicious meal. The comments around the table is how much better it was then Vegas. AND... More

Description
The story of Ruth's Chris Steak House, the elegant, comfortable and classically American home of the sizzling steak, began in 1965 in New Orleans. Ruth Fertel had a goal of providing a better life for her family. Inspired by her love of people and delight in creating memorable moments, Ruth's lack of business experience mattered little when matched with her spirit and commitment to create a restaurant of which she could be proud.

Ruth's legacy continues today. Regardless of the occasion, we guarantee the best steak house experience you have ever had. Every detail will be perfect. From the moment you arrive until your evening's end, you will feel as though you were the most honored guest in the restaurant.

We look forward to treating you to a world-class experience!
