We would not go there again for dinner. The booth next to us had better service! The mashed potatoes were runny. The prices were much higher for the crowded conditions that existed in the restaurant.

This is my 2nd time at a Ruth's and it has always been a very good experience. Our waiter was pleasant, efficient, professional. The steaks, all 3 different types we ordered, were all perfectly cooked, juicy and tender just as expected. It's not cheap eats but for special occasions or if you're in the mood for excellent steak-this is the... More

Best steak and love the way they prepare it...very classic setting and service. Never heard anyone has any complaint since we started eating there in Dallas 10 years ago.

The bartender remembered me from eating there a year ago. I always order the Filet Mignon medium rare just like in the picture they use for advertising with the wedge cut out. Spinach Salad and Seafood Bisque were excellent as well. My wife had the stuffed chicken ordered without the skin. Good Times!

I love this place. Aside from them really knowing how to prepare a steak, it's wonderful to go to a nice place and have amazing service as well. Every time that a plate was placed in front of you, you had someone coming and checking on you to see if you were enjoying your meal. Not in a harassing way... More

Great steaks, and enough other stuff to satisfy the non-meet eaters, like lobster and vegetarian sides. Love their creamed spinach, with a baked potato and broccoli or Brussels sprouts. Excellent wine list. There is no outdoor seating.

Great place to eat a good steak. 5 of us had different steaks and they were all good. Not best ever but very good. For wine we had the Francis Coppola Director's Cut Cabernet Sauvignon. A great Napa wine with beef. We shared a couple of sides. All were large and tasty. This place is on the edge of a... More
