Dinner was great as usual. And as usual, too pricey. The bone-in filet was as tasty as I have ever had. My co-workers had the ribeye and said it was very good as well. But just wished it wasn’t so expensive. I could eat there...More

Visited Indy for a Garth Brooks concert. I never dined at Ruth Chris because it's expensive.Glad I did. The brunch was definitely worth it. The buffet had anything you would want.

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

This location is the perfect place for a memorable meal. Having visited Ruth's throughout this country; we have to say this by far exceeded our expectations (even though the location on the Big Island of Hawaii has the view) My husband and I visited after...More

We don't eat here often, but we enjoy it when we do. One of the special was a cut of bison, which is normally leaner (and tougher if not cooked right) than beef. But, I tried it and was exceedingly happy. Ruth's Chris did it...More
