Ruth’s Chris is always a mainstay for us in Indy. It is pricy but you can share large portions and split if you are portion conscious like us. Valet is a plus! Nice to drive up and go in! Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes casserole and...More

We visited Ruth's Chris for our anniversary and had a lovely time. The service was quite good and the food was excellent. We were rightly advised to consider sharing side dishes as they are very generous. A fun surprise was an anniversary plate with two...More

Once again visited Ruth's, once again unbelievable! Steaks are crazy good. Waiter was super. Had augratin potatoes as a side and they were good but probably wouldn't get those again. Bread is delicious
