The last time I was at a Ruth's Chris was about 10 years ago in New York. Yes, it's a franchise, but I thought this would be a good place for a dinner with my brother. As it turns out, we had a great waiter....More

If you eaten at any Ruth's Chris before, you'll know what to expect. Consistent food and expensive, but beyond that it's not too memorable.More

Hi, prices are ala carte, so it tends to be a little pricey but it will probably be the best steak you will ever have, we have eaten at Ruth Chris at a number of locations and the quality of the meal has been superb!

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.
