Being from Montana, I know a little about steaks and how to cook them, so when my partners "medium" (yes, i know, but that is how she likes them) came out with 1/3 a dark red RARE and the other 2/3 a true medium, you know somebody didn't take it our of the freezer in time to thaw. Fortunately, we... More

We always celebrate our anniversary here. We get a table by the rail so we can watch the free Hawaiian entertainment down below. Even without the entertainment, we'd celebrate here. Love this place!

We happened to be at the Shops at Mauna Lani at happy hour and decided to give Ruth's Chris' Steak House a try. There was a line up to get in and the place filled up very quickly as soon as it opened. The staff were very helpful and professional. The booths filled up quickly but we got a nice... More

We have a tradition of eating at Ruth's Chris as soon as we get to Hawaii. No one makes a steak as good as they can. Highly recommend any steak on the menu. Side dishes are another story. This time my husband decided to try their Lobster Mac and Cheese. Thank goodness i didn't order a side because this was... More

The menu is amazing. The service was exceptional. The drinks were the best quality. Everything was first class. The Seafood Tower was impressive, but I thought the lobster was not as tasty as it should have been for the price. I think it was cooked & refrigerated too long. The T-bone was overcooked & had to be re-done. Was great... More

This marks my 3rd time to a Ruth Chris Steak House at different locations and this one is my favorite. My steak was spot on searing in it's juices and tasted great. My wife opinion was not the same. Her steak had gristle and was so so. The service was top notch and very helpful and always around. Our cost... More

We needed a decent steak fix and Ruth Chris Steak House provided it in spades....The steak was huge, well cooked to our request and service was fast. We ordered a couple of sides as well. We shared a steak which was enough BUT it was a bit of butter overload. The portion sizes for the sides were decent and tasty,... More

Description
In 1965, Ruth Fertel mortgaged her home to buy a little steak house in New Orleans named Chris Steak House. After investing her life savings, she proudly added her name to the original. That's how the uniquely name Ruth's Chris Steak House was born. Ruth established this unique restaurant with no restaurant experience, but she vowed to treat every customer like a guest in her own home. And she clearly knew what steak lovers wanted - the very best beef. Today, as always, Ruth's Chris serves only the finest corn-fed Midwestern beef available, broiled in 1800-degree ovens designed by Ruth herself. The steaks are served sizzling on 500-degree plates so every bite is hot and delicious. And while steak is king, the menu also includes expertly executed seafood, lamb, pork, and poultry dishes, as well as classic appetizers, fresh salads, side dishes, and homemade desserts. The award-winning wine list features more than 250 world-class international and domestic labels. Whatever the occasion, Ruth's Chris Steak House is the perfect spot to gather. Unparalleled cuisine, sumptuous surroundings and service that's accomplished yet never fussy - these are the elements of memorable special events.
