Well worth the price. Was initially turned off as this is a "chain" but the steak was better than a lot of the independent steak houses in the area. Highly recommend.

I was very hesitant to spend $35 to $45 for a piece of beef as I can cook it myself, but I have to say that the beef at Ruth's Chris's Steak House is worth every penny.\r\n\r\nWe started with stuffed mushrooms and fried oysters, which were both outstanding. The ceasar salad was very good, not excellent, but good and one served two no problem. I loved the ribeye (although it really does float in butter when brought to the table) and the smell of butter is pretty pervasive, so you'd better like butter!!!\r\nThe sides are to die for. We had creamed spinach and au gratin potatoes, and both were the best I've ever had. \r\n\r\nI have to say as someone who bakes, that the dessert didn't win any awards. I ordered the banana pie which was bland, bland, bland. The carmelized bananas were good, but the filling and crust had NO flavor. Our server, Jen, was excellent and when she asked how we liked the desserts and I said I didn't, she quickly removed it, asked if I wanted anything else, and took it off the check. My friend had the molten chocolate cake which was good, but not great. \r\n\r\nI do have to say that I'm sititng here thinking about going back again, so the food leaves a memory. I will go back, maybe not too soon as it is a pricey place but worth the dollars for a special night out.

Been here a few times and love it. The food is of exceptional freshness and quality and the service is nearly faultless. The staff is extremely knowledgable and very approachable. The waiters we've had have been very helpful with suggestions and accomadating to my picky requests. I love that you can add things to your entree (like crab legs or lobster tails). Managers are present in the dining room every time we've been, which is rare even in restaurants of the same quality. This place is truly worthy of 5 stars. Some of my favorite dishes are the calamari, the bone-in ribeye, creamed spinach, and the apple tart. But everything I've ever tried has been wonderful with the exception of the crawfish appetizer (not my thing). I highly recommend Ruth's Chris.

Pros: Excellent service, amazing food, great location (near highways), courteous staff

Cons: Can't think of a thing....

If you want quality food and service, this is it! The steak literally melts in your mouth...try a filet mignon, or better yet, a porterhouse. Waitstaff is attentive, quality in unsurpassed...a great place to bring Mom for her birthday, or to impress a date!Expensive, but you get what you pay for!

Pros: Filet Mignon, Service, Wine List

If you're searching for a 5 star dining experience where you will be catered to from the moment you walk in the door...this is the place. The food is phenominal...melt in your mouth filets and desserts that you'll crave days later. The waitstaff literally waits for you to stand so they can assist you at any moment...but never hover. I'm not even a big meat eater....but I loved this place and would go back in a minute !! Very pricey, but well worth it if you want to reward yourself with a great meal ! Make reservations or you probably won't get a table.

PROS: Fantastic Food, Very Professional and Courteous Waitstaff, Great Atmosphere
CONS: Very Pricey, A line to get in the door...but it goes by VERY quickly.

I am a picky eater and a critic of service. I have dined at Ruths Chris several times and have never been dissappointed! The food is top notch and so is the service. Staff is very friendly and polite. I order more than I can eat because the food is so good I don't want to miss anything! If I want a memorable experience I go to Ruths. They know how to take care of their guests. I highly recommend this dining experience. Leave room for dessert!!!!

Ruth's Chris is an elegant, ambient, comfortable restaurant. However, as far as best steak, not really. Don't get me wrong the steak was delicious, but i have had comprable, and better. Side dishes were wide in variety, and very tasty. Appetizers are outstanding. The atmosphere is excellent. The service unbeatable. wine selection is great. Excellent suggestion to win over a date. But bring your visa card, and maybe even a loan specialist because the prices are obscene, and i'm not sure they take american express. I will definately be going back soon. Paul B. - Bristol

The filet I ordered was pretty high quality, but I was mostly impressed with the service. Not only was our waiter fabulous and on top of his job, but there were several other people who were around to make sure that our meal went very smoothly and that we were satisfied, without being annoying in any way. The waitstaff was able to unobtrusively guide us from course to course, leading to an incredibly satisfying meal. I would recommend going to this restaurant.

Unquestionably the best in Conn. I've tried Morton's (snooty), Michael Jordon's (over rated) and a bunch of others. Don't waste your money anywhere else. Ruth's does it every time!

This is the second time I have rated Ruth's Chris. I am the one who spilled the water because of the golf pro. Fuzzy. I saw him there again but didn't spill a thing. (Linda moved it). I failed to mention the last time, that since we have been eating at Ruth's Chris (maybe 13 years or so) we have NEVER NEVER eaten steak at any other restaurant. Not even in steakland(Texas). Keep up the great job Tom. Michael Shimansky and Linda Kellam

Incredible steaks, cooked in butter. Really does melt in your mouth. Their garlic mashed potatoes are also incredibly good. Everything is prepared fresh upon ordering. If you have a wad burning a hole in your pocket and are hungry or looking to impress someone, you can't do better than this.

I usually don't eat at restaurants that often but my best friend usually has his birthday parties at The Ruth's Chris Steak House and let me tell you the food is phenomenally delicious. The atmosphere is great, the service is incredible, and the food is unbelievable. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who has a decent-sized wallet - it's not exactly cheap, but let me say this: If you want the best steak you will ever taste at an affordable price, you gotta go here! If you haven't tried Ruth's Chris, you haven't tried a good steak!

I've been to a lot of nice restaurants and had many good steaks. Ruth's Chris is over rated. It was good but not as good as I expected the way I heard people rave about it. I've had a filet at OutBack Steakhouse for practically half the price that was just as good. And forget about the atmosphere, you are sitting on top of one another. I did think the service was very good though.

Few restaurants are as consistent and pleasing to the diner as this chain offers, and that makes it more appealing to me. To know that every Ruth Chris' that I have gone to has been a pure delight - gives me comfort knowing that I will have a nice dining experience. The food quality represents good management and it is worth the cost to have such a fine meal!

The food alone is spectacular, but the service is what makes it worth your while. From the time I stepped into the door, I felt like I was at home. The servers were attentive but not intrusive, and always pleasant. Tom, the manager -- both charming and handsome -- was the icing on the cake making sure our food was good and there were smiles on our faces. I highly recommend it and will definitely be back!
