Ruth's Chris Steak House - Destin Ratings and Reviews
The food and menu selection was great. Steaks were very flavorful and very tender, true to Ruth's Chris tradition. They came out sizzling on a hot 550 degree plate,
However, I must say though The ambiance was very lacking. It seem like I was thrust back into the 1980s. Definitely needs decor updates at this site. Moreover the lighting was very bright for dinner time. Supposed to be a nice romantic venue but it felt like the middle of the day.
The service was outstanding! The steak was cooked sub par, and the asparagus was completely over cooked. Half of the asparagus was black with the consistency of rubber. I couldn't even cut it with a knife. I've eaten at many Ruth Chris's and this by far was the worst. The best part of my experience was the waiter who was again, outstanding!
Ruth's Chris in Destin rocks. I have been to many of their locations but the one in Destin is a franchised location and the owners are serious about putting out the best product. On wednesdays they have one of the best happy hours in Destin in the bar. How can you not love a restaurant with three bars! Steaks are the best in Destin.
Waitservice was very lacking. I had to go find him when we were ready to order. Bartender was no where to be found. Very disappointing service to have spent $1.000 on meal. Will have to reconsider next time. We have spent over $10,000 with this restaurant over last few years.
My wife, daughter and I had a 5:00 pm reservation. We walked in at 2 minutes till five according to the young lady at your front desk. She advised that we could not be seated until 5. I asked why? She said the cooks get uppity if we seat guests early.
While this conversation was being held there were at least two couples that walked in and right past the front desk to a dining room in the rear.
My response to the front desk was "I should get uppity and eat some where else." My Wife insisted that we stay. We did. The meal was great but I do not plan to return.

It was an excellent first-time experience at Ruth Chris. The staff was very friendly. My only thought is that it would have been nice to know that there was an "early bird" menu which allows people to try a little bit of everything. We were made aware of it by another couple. Other than that, it was a wonderful dinner.
My husband and I dined at Ruth's Chris for Thanksgiving. We viewed the menu online prior to arriving with an idea of what would be offered only to be told that Ruth's Chris Destin is not part of Ruth's Chris corporate but is an independent franchise. While they offered A Thanksgiving menu, it was individually priced. It was a disappointment since the menu online was presented so nicely in three courses with one set price.
However, The food we ordered was excellent and nicely served. The waiters were very nice and professional. The reason I gave the service a lower rating was because of the time gap between them returning to the table. Glasses were empty. At a regular restaurant I would probably not notice but for the price you pay at Ruth's Chris Destin I felt like that should have never happened especially since they were steady but not extremely busy and there were two servers attending our two person table.
Me and my wife have been to multiple 5 star reastuarnts and never have we had a horrible food experience, the lobster bisque from bob steak and chop house was great and decided to trying here , it was bitter , greasy in fact 2 spoonful bites later I wanted to gag , so I gave it the benifit of the doubt and waited for my bone in New York strip , and it was horrible , no flavor badly cooked and it did not smell fresh at all the worst restaurant I've been to , 3 forks , bobs steak house , ocien prime etc etc have never let me down but this was horrible , the waiter was great
The only problem was our steak (porterhouse for two) was overcooked in places. I ordered it medium rare, and it was in places. Other parts of the meat were medium, and others were medium well. I think it may be an issue with the broiler and suggest they check the equipment. The service was excellent and the sides, salad, and dessert were perfect.
The Staff went out of their way to accommodate my special parking needs and to ensure a most delightful dinning experience with the most perfectly grilled fillet and side items. The mood was exactly what an anniversary dinner called for. I congratulate and thank all members of the staff and cooks for their outstanding service.
Husband's steak was cooked to perfection. Mushrooms were great. Incredible service and attention to detail that was much appreciated. I had the crab cakes, and although good - really would have benefited from more acid which could be easily provided by extra sauce or a lemon wedge on the plate. Would definitely return.
The Destin RC is consistently outstanding in all aspects. If you haven't been there, go and try the porterhouse for two! There is really enough for three or a nice take away - we can never finish it. Try it with steamed spinach and voodoo shrimp. (The menu doesn't list steamed spinach, just creamed, but they are always happy to accommodate such variations upon request!) the waitstaff are always very friendly and smiling. We go every time we are in town, and always leave happy.
