Ruth's Chris Steak House - Destin Ratings and Reviews
We go to Ruth's Chris every time we are in Destin. The service is impeccable, and the wine list leaves no room for complaint. We always order the same meal - which we look forward to with great pleasure - the Porterhouse for two, with Voodoo Shrimp to start, and Caesar Salad. The only side we order is the steamed spinach. This meal is so superb it almost defies adequate adjectives. It is perfection, every time.
Bone in NY strip is a featured item. Ordered mine medium rare. It arrived medium well. Was offered a replacement. It arrived medium, I kept it. BUT I couldn't eat it. I cut it and there was so much gristle I couldn't hardly get it cut . No way could I chew the steak. Steak with fat is okay but when it's gristle it's not. There was no flavor and not edible. I left it that way, butchered and not eaten. My wife had surf and turf. Ordered Medium Rare came medium well. No pink. More like buttered sirlion. She was offered a replacement and she declined it. Manager did come out and apologize. Lobster was good. Daughter had crab cakes and where good. Lobster bisque goods, sides good. Now comes the weird part . Manager comped my wife's dinner. 6 years of patronizing this location, last 2 years have not been good.
I ordered a steak salad and I received a salad with no meat, just greens. That was definitely annoying since the waiter repeated my order to me before leaving! Then, I ordered a filet steak, well done, and the inside of the steak was actually bleeding, as if it were still alive. Totally disgusting and I am not satisfied with the Ruth Chris out in Destin. There are definitely better steakhouses in Atlanta, GA. The waiters were polite, however they obviously were not paying much attention to me.
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.
Service was excellent though the greeting at the entrance was poor. As far as atmosphere, this is the weakest RC I have been to. Have eaten at two in Chicago, NYC, Palm Desert, Atlanta, and now Destin. Food was very good though I have to say that I am growing weary of paying $50-60 for a steak then $15-20 ala carte for three sides.
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.
