Sometimes you just want great service

yes, the food is fine, and yes the menu is pricey....but ya know, sometimes, you just want to be made to feel special, like the crew and waitstaff at Ruth,s Chris do.

The steaks are very good, and the service is top notch.
It's great to get out forna special nite every so often

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

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.

If you're looking for a great steak, this is the place to go! It might cost you more than expected but the meal will be worth it!

A Swing and a Miss

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.

Solid quality, but boring

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.

All time favorite place for a night out

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.

Best steak in Baltimore

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.

EXCELLENT

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!

Not Best In Baltimore But not Bad

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.

Best of the best

I frequently eat out and the best meal for my money is a Ruth Chris steak. I enjoy both the atomosphere Baltimore and Annapolis locations. Out of the many times I have eaten there I had a poor steak once. When I said something they couldnt do enough to make things right. The filet is the only way to go and don't pass up the coffee and sin cake.

We are frequent diners of all the Ruth's in the area. We love them! I highly recommend the mashed potatos and Ribeye. The banana's foster and creme brulee are fabulous!!!

Not a fan

I think RC averaged a 9.3 rating based on its reputation. The restaurant had decent food but for the price we paid for 2, the food should have been spectacular. I thought the ribeye I ordered was good, but now that another reviewer mentioned it, it *was* a bit more fatty than other ribeyes I've had. The side dishes we had, asparagus and mashed potatoes, were not worth $3, let alone $7 each. They just boiled the asparagus, and the mashed potatoes tasted like regular mp. And the atmosphere was incredibly stuffy, too stuffy to be romantic. And something I ate gave me a bad stomach ache. We probably won't come back here again.

Why why why

I went there on my 20th Anniversary.What a let down $175.00 for 2. Tough steak, lousy service but this was at the Annapolis Restaurant.I will only go there again if someone else pays.Go to Lone Star in Belair better steaks and friendlier waitress.
The coffee was great that is about it.

Over-rated

The food is acceptable at best, but nothing outrageous. I do not feel that one receives a good value for what is paid. The only way I would ever go back is if someone else is paying!

VERY DISAPPOINTING!

I am a big fan of Ruth's Chris and have eaten at many thoughout the country. I was very happy to see that there was one in Baltimore when I moved here last year. Unfortunately after giving them about a dozen chances I have yet to have one good steak! The cuts of meat are inferior, tough and fatty.
