Grilled Filet with Shrimp was cooked perfectly. Paired with Half a Steak House Salad, and Grilled Asparagus, made an excellent meal. Courteous staff, and pleasant atmosphere added to the overall experience. Highly recommend. This location only open for Lunch on Fridays. Reservations are suggested.

We eat at Ruth's Cris a couple of times a year and are never disappointed with the steaks. The service is always impeccable and adds to the experience. We were there recently and they are undergoing renovations. I'm sure this was necessary and will make...More
