I for one was not impressed. On a Tuesday night, it took forever to get seated, and a even longer time to get the attention of our waitress. She had attitude written all over her, and my tip reflected that. The steaks were equal to what you get in a Longhorn, just marked up so you pay for the name. WILL NEVER GO BACK.

For a first meal, after six months eating lowest-bidder contract meals in a third world country, my wife and I thought it would be nice to eat in one of Baltimore's award-winning steak restaurants. We picked Ruth's Chris after reading many reviews in local papers, seeing the awards posted in their window, and hearing positive word of mouth. We went on a Friday night around 8 o'clock, without making a reservation, and were seated immediately. There were only two other tables occupied when we arrived, which probably wasn't a good omen. The wine list was fantastic- varied and long- we ordered a bottle of Argentine Malbec, quickly brought out by the waiter. As we ordered our steaks (wife- petite filet, me-porterhouse), the waiter warned us the serving plates would be approximately 500 degrees...ok, we won't touch the plates. While sipping wine and eating the so-so pre-game bread, we noticed the music. Apparently, the composer of the Sesame Street theme song was a friend of either Ruth or Chris, because the happy slap-bass and piano tunes were copiously intermingled with emo rock (Creed, Evanescence), weepy new age, and 90's hair band ballads. It was also difficult to talk over the volume of ""Every Rose Has It's Thorns."" After a good 25 minutes, the steaks arrived on their lava beds. Good thing I wore a white shirt. Within seconds, I looked like I just finished filming an episode of CSI- Abattoir after the juices from my well-done (I ordered med-rare) porterhouse sizzle-popped off the plate. The mis-cooked steak was average, the manager offered a new steak, but I had nearly finished, and wasn't interested in waiting on another greaseworks show while being loudly serenaded by Michael MacDonald any longer than necessary. My wife had desert, which was nothing more than a run of the mill sundae. Nothing creative like ""olive oil gellato with fennel brittle and lemon curd"" you could get in other large cities with less of a sense of entitlement. Summarily, Ruth's Chris had good wine, fair steak, evil plates, and the atmosphere of my 1992 junior prom.

My family loves steak houses so I have been to the best steakhouses in Florida, Atlanta, and Baltimore. Honestly I find Ruth's Chris to be the most traditional and bland. The quality of the meat itself is good, but Ruth's Chris simply lacks the inventiveness of other steakhouses such as Capital Grille, Chops, Bones etc. Honestly if you want traditional then go to the Prime Rib because they have better service and quality.
I've enjoyed the Havana Club for a few years now. I'm a 25 year old female who likes a nice atmosphere rather than the typical "night club" atmosphere. Havana offers a wide varity of drinks and appitizers. They have a smaller dance floor but its a smaller club so its nice. They have leather sofas and chairs for you to relax in while having nice conversations or you could shoot some pool as well. They lay different music all the time which is great. Lots of Latin music, old school 60s and 70s is so much fun and they also play some younger music with more of a hip hop feel. The salsa lessons are soooo much fun. I highly recomend this place...even though I don't really want to because its kind of my secret spot haha! ITs just one of those places where you can get dressed up, look and feel good without anyone being rude to you. ITs not a young crowd I guess thats why. The average age ranges from 30's - 50's.
I recently dined at the Ruth's Chris in Baltimore and had an outstanding experience. The staff was very welcoming and went out of their way to make my dinner an event. I had a NY Strip and I can say without reservation that it was the best steak I have every had in Baltimore. I would reccommend this restaruant to anyone.
I've been to all the Ruth's Chris Steak House location in Baltimore - Water Street & Pier 5 and they are GREAT! Service is outstanding and food is always consistent and delicious.
Currently they are offering a 3 Course Meal on Sunday & Monday's for $35.95. Its a great deal that is running in conjuction with the 15th Anniversary in Baltimore! Check it out!

Overcooked meat because they put them on an over heated plate. That is where the sizzle comes from (and the tiny grease spots on your shirt). The meats have a good flavor but not great. The atmosphere, decor, food presentation and service, are the only reason to go there. Anyone you take there will be impressed and probably won't notice the average and over priced food.
