My wife and I enjoyed a lovely dinner for our anniversary. I was delighted by the extra touch: staff had decorated our table and left us a card for the occasion. Food was great, drinks were great. Waiter was attentive without being annoying.

I have been a frequent guest, and this has become our “go to” spot, but my date’s and my experience last night was terrible. Even with the appropriate pandemic patience I think we should all strive to demonstrate these days - it was awful. Place needs a good clean. Server was below standard, and spoke so fast it was impossible to understand him. 1.5 hours to get our entrees? Really? Ended up busing my own table, just to get dishes cleared - left tackily on our table. Background music was so loud I could not hear my date. No utensils to eat with? Really? Food was iffy and over-priced. I may give it another chance, but I will pointedly ask not to be seated in the server’s area again. Dude could not handle four tables without dropping the ball. Busboy smelled like cigarettes. Gross, gross, gross. Best part of the evening was getting out of there.

Hospitality is a source of great pride for our company and when a guest feels that he or she has not received the service that is the hallmark of the Ruth’s Chris name, we take those assertions seriously. We appreciate you brining your concerns to our attention and will work to ensure this doesn't happen again soon.

Love this location, but I will say that with us being 18 months into the pandemic I was a bit surprised that the outside service wasn't elevated somewhat to the level of sitting inside. No tableclothes on the bigger tables. Placemats were black napkins which I do understand so they can wash them. If you are looking for the fancy dining experience it's best to go inside. We did not feel comfortable due to Covid so made the decision to sit outside. Our server, Kristin, was great! She was working every table outside and hustling. The food was good, but just felt a bit different with the outside environment!

We didn’t tell them it was our anniversary, but they already knew and had our table decorated- and we had just made the reservations 2 hour before!

Amazing customer service and food.

Family dinner to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Ali provided outstanding, attentive service. Our food was prepared perfectly and delivered piping hot (as appropriate). The ambiance was very conducive to a lovely conversation with our 18yo son. My husband was incredibly pleased with the entire experience. Thank you for making his special day even more special!

MAN O MAN I can't formulate the words to describe how fantastic the food and service was. This location was the absolute best I've been to. The food tasted 100 x's better and the service from our waiter Travis was superb 👌. Everything we ordered was cooked perfectly and that truffle crusted ribeye was AMAZING 👏 😋. We will most definitely come here again n we hope to have Travis again as well. He suggested the best drinks and sides. I can go on and on but all I can say is GO GO GO. You will NOT be disappointed.
