My wife and I go here semi regularly and thoroughly enjoy every visit. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the food options and wine. They have a patio for the warmer season and it is quite lovely in the Summer with the live music in the pavilion. Also, I am happy to see that a dress code is being... More

I was looking forward to going here since I had never been but it was a let down. None of the dishes or sides were tasty or impressive considering everything is quite pricey. I've had better steaks at many other places, which is disappointing seeing that this place is supposed to be known for their steak. I probably would never... More

This is one of our favorite Ruth's Chris. They are always lovely here, it has a nice bar if you need to wait, and as always the steaks are done perfectly, the wine list is great, and the martini are also perfect.

It has been our experience that the amazing Bone In Fillet has been one of the best tender, dry aged, full of flavor steaks we would buy in any restaurant. We have enjoyed this meal 6 times before this visit - both in DC and here - and knew just what to expect. This time, however, this fillet was poorly... More

We really enjoyed the meals at this restaurant that were offered during Restaurant Week at Town Center in Virginia Beach. We had the steak and crab cakes and both were great. Wish the wine had been a more generous pour for the price.

You must have the steak and the service is superb. Another great choice is the stuffed chicken with cream cheese and chives.

Awesome ambiance, service and food. Business presentation over lunch. Service and food was impecable. Had crab cakes and there were great. Vegatables were cooked just enough and love the family style way the potatoes were served. First Class all the way!

We celebrated our 41st anniversary and wanted something special. Ruth's Chris hit the mark. We had a wonderful evening. Our table was well prepared noting our celebration. Kristen, our server, took special care of us and offered wonderful recommendations. The servings were plentiful and easy to share. The evening was beautiful. Parking was free in a nearby garage.

The story of Ruth's Chris Steak House, the elegant, comfortable and classically American home of the sizzling steak, began in 1965 in New Orleans. Ruth Fertel had a goal of providing a better life for her family. Inspired by her love of people and delight in creating memorable moments, Ruth's lack of business experience mattered little when matched with her spirit and commitment to create a restaurant of which she could be proud.

Ruth's legacy continues today. Regardless of the occasion, we guarantee the best steak house experience you have ever had. Every detail will be perfect. From the moment you arrive until your evening's end, you will feel as though you were the most honored guest in the restaurant.

We look forward to treating you to a world-class experience!
