Both filets were not cooked to the right temperature this visit. But we have never had that problem before in our many visits to this location, so maybe it was an off night.

I do love this location but this time it was off. Food quality and attention to detail was the issue. The fish tasted extremely fishy and seasoning on side items.
I will still be back!

More limited COVID menu, but excellent well prepared steaks.
Limited staff and social distancing requirements made service just a step below the normal excellence.

For a chain restaurant, I think this place is underrated. I had some points from Open Table so I ended up using it towards an early dinner. Upon arrival, I noticed that they had some hand sanitizer available on a table to the side and staff took the proper COVID precautions. We were helped by Andrew and he was so attentive to our needs. He definitely paid attention to the little details and his efforts did not go unnoticed. As far as food, we skipped the appetizers and went straight for the meaty good stuff. My brother ended up getting the Cowboy ribeye and I had the ribeye Oscar style. We also got the lobster Mac n cheese which was pretty much an entree and added a baked potato and grilled asparagus for sides. The steaks were delicious and buttery. I had steak envy and wished I had gotten the cowboy ribeye. The bone-in really made a huge difference and it tasted like wagyu with the richness and buttery texture of the steak. We strategized appropriately and didn't force ourselves to finish the large portions and saved room for dessert. I saw that they had the bread pudding so I got that and it was a perfect finish to the meal. Besides making steaks at home, this would have to be my next favorite spot to get my steak cravings satisfied. Highly recommend!

Was greeted by the host stand for a reservation at 5:30 on a Sunday. The server greeted us promptly & friendly. She answered all of our questions. We started off with the BBQ shrimp small plate. It was excellent, very flavorful, the shrimps were a little small & came with 5 pieces. We placed our food order and went with the filet, stuffed chicken, filet oscar, & lobster mac & cheese. Thats when the evening went south to be honest. The lobster mac & cheese was not what we expected. It came out at room temp and was very bland. It did not have the lobster mixed in & needed some more salt or pepper. Not very cheesy. It seemed like it was sitting under the heat lamp in the kitchen for a while as it did not taste fresh & the cheese was hardened. It was just a buzz kill. The filet oscar came out with a a small plate & side of your choice. We chose the crab stuffed mushrooms & garlic mash potatoes. Both were HORRIBLE. The mushrooms had the fishy smell & no flavor. We thought to add the sauce from the BBQ shrimp or a garlic butter sauce to give it some flavor. When we asked our server for some she had a rude tone & rolled her eyes. I did not appreciate that at all. It was unnecessary. However, adding the garlic butter sauce changed the taste completely to be so much better! The mash potatoes were also very bland & hard as a rock. More like a baked potato instead of mashed. Does the kitchen not use salt, pepper, or any type of seasonings? The filet oscar was decent just extremely small portions & the stuffed chicken & 11oz filet were the only good things. As we are celebrating 2 birthdays they brought out two complimentary desserts. Both had no candle. Didn't taste good. Whats new? The cheesecake had such a disgusting taste to it and was barely edible & the chocolate cake was very tart & almost like clay. The sauce of the cheesecake was like paste. These did not taste like they are made fresh in house. Now you would think the server came & asked how everything is? NOPE.

The food was great. We had fired calamari which was excellent. Lobster bisque soup. Wedge salad asparagus and then i had the filet medallions with the shrimp and my husband had the rib eye. Sangrias are very good to. It’s kind of pricey so it’s great for a anniversary dinner or birthday. But i think it was well worth the money

This place is the Gold Standard for service and quality of food. Took a friend who had never been there and they loved it. The greeters were awesome. Rylie our server could not have been more accommodating. The ambiance was right on point. My cowboy ribeye was PERFECT. Ruth's Chris in South Barrington is better than advertised.

Food was okay, not worth the price. Chicken was salty and steak wasn't aged as well as other steakhouses.
