I have been to Ruth's several time but the steak was just not as good as usual this time , I am not sure what happened maybe a new cook.

I've dined here many times and have never had a bad steak -- until our last visit. It was a special Father's Day dinner and my husband ordered the ribeye. Ribeyes should be marbled with fat which gives it extra flavor and juiciness. My husband's ribeye was unusually thick and a good third of it was hard gristle. There was no marbling -- just a huge portion of hard gristle and the rest of the piece was just okay. My filet and my daughter's filets were good and cooked to proper temps. The service was very friendly but very slow-- it took a long time to get our cocktails and courses. We didn't mind this too much as the dinner was our only obligation for the night. My husband tried his best with the steak and after the bill was presented, the mgr inquired about our meals. My husband nicely told him that his cut was not very good. The manager said he was sorry to hear that and asked about the rest of the table and we told him our meals were good. That seemed to be the end of discussion. I think a gesture, such as a free dessert (we would've declined) would have made us feel better about the whole thing but nothing was offered but a quick smile and he was off to the next table. My husband swears he will never go back -- but I'm hoping he'll change his mind.

This place is expensive but in my opinion is worth it. My family likes to go there for birthdays and other special occasions. The steaks are superb, as you would expect, but don't overlook the stuffed chicken!

I always wanted to go here but found out it is pricey. When you order a filet for $44 you assume sides come with it but I quickly found out not at this place. You pay for every single item , Nothing is included. I will be eating at places like Texas Roadhouse from now on. The food is better and a whole lot cheaper.

Service was excellent. Food was tasty and plentiful. Definitely the best experience in town.
My husband and I went to dinner to celebrate a special occasion. This is the perfect place to do that. Great service by Chadwick-he knew the menu by heart and was able to help us make decisions based on his knowledge. The timing for food arriving was excellent. I would highly recommend a list to Ruth Chris.
Excellent Service, as usual
We have dined at Ruth Chris several times over the last year and have always found the service and food to be impeccable.

Been here many times with a great experience. Choose RC for our sons graduation dinner. Service was terrible. I mean terrible. Could have done about the same at McDonalds. My wife tried to order two different meals but they were out if tomatoes and mushrooms. Steaks were ordered medium and came out well done. Server did not check back for 20 mins. By that time we had waited over an hour for our meal and did not want to wait longer. This experience and $600 did not come close to meeting our expectation and Ruth's Chris brand was completely let down this night.

The night was perfect for celebrating my daughters 18th birthday. The hostess, Autumn, made us feel special immediately and the waiter, Steve, made great suggestions and was perfectly attentive. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the sides and deserts were delicious.
We selected to have Mother's Day at Ruth's Chris because it is top flight food and service. We found our expectations easily met in the service, food, beverage choices and getting roses for the Moms was nice and unexpected. We recommend Ruth's Chris for just such an occasion.
Excellent Mother's Day meal in Ktown
My wife and I have dined at this Ruth's Chris many times. This time we took my mother for the holiday brunch. We all had salads and steaks. Service was very good and food quality was excellent as always. Since it was brunch, we kept it pretty basic, no alcohol or dessert. They do get quite busy on the few Sundays they are open for brunch, so reserve early! It's a nice Mother's Day treat and good value for the meal.

The appetizer seafood tower was a hit, but my NY Strip was very mediocre. Great service!!!
My husband was born in Knoxville TN and had never been to Ruth Chris. It was his 50th birthday and the experience was great.
The best for steak
Our wedding anniversary date to Ruth's Chris was over the top. Thank you to Paul and staff for making this experience one we will never forget. We will miss our designated waiter, Steve, as he will be moving to Nashville soon. Sad to see him go as our visits to the Knoxville location will never be the same. Fuel the G6 because a trip(s) to the Music City Ruth's Chris is definitely in our future!

The absolute best steak I've ever put in my mouth!
It was good
The restaurant was very nice. It had a great view and great service to go with it. My steak was wonderful, I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
Consistent and Comfortable
Always solid service and a great atmosphere. The food is excellent and the staff very professional. It is still a bit over-priced for my total comfort level, but it's worth it for special occasions.
My wife and I both opted for the filet mignon and we were not disappointed. Cooked to perfection and hot plate kept the food warm throughout meal.

Great service, great food, nice special touches with the small happy birthday confetti on the table for my wife which I kept and taped in her birthday card. Great attention from server (Jimmy). Thank you, and will come back sooner than later.
Great steak and more in Knoxville
We've dined here many times as we live nearby. For steak, it's hard to beat Ruth's Chris and the wine and cocktails are excellent as well. This time, we noticed they had stepped up their game on other menu entries, with some expanded fish and seafood offerings. My wife tried a fish main course, while I had a steak (filet). We started with cocktails and had a lovely Merlot to go with it as well. Service was great (thanks Steven) and both the steak and fish were wonderful. Kudos to the restaurant for looking at some other items to feature as well...we look forward to trying more of them. The Knoxville location (for those not familiar with it) has a nice river view as well.
Sides could be better
Love the atmosphere and steak. The quality of side dishes could be much better considering the price. The spinach side dish does not compare to Calhoun's spanish maria next door. Both the spinach and potatoes did not taste freshly prepared.
We have eaten here many times over the years and it still remains our favorite restaurant in Knoxville. This is the best filet you will ever have and serving it on the 500 degree plate ensures its always hot.
Excellent Birthday dinner and first time ...
Excellent Birthday dinner and first time visit for my kids who were very impressed with the excellent service and said they felt like they were in the Titanic dining room it was so fancy and formal. Always an incredible filet!
Always a good meal
Ruth's Chris is our favorite steakhouse chain and Knoxville is one of the best. The staff is friendly and efficient, the food and service is always good.
Always great steak
We've dined at the local Ruth's Chris many times and it always lives up to expectations. If you want a great steak, this is an excellent choice. The wine list is extensive, service is great, and the Knoxville location has a nice view of the river from most parts of the dining room. In our case, we had a late Valentine's Day dinner here, with cocktails, steak, sides, and wine. The food was excellent, service was wonderful as always, and we had a wonderful red wine to accompany it all. If you are looking for excellent steak in Knoxville in the downtown area, this is the place to get it.

Incredible lamb chops! Try the crimini mushrooms. Wonderful service, too.
The consumate dining experience! First class!
From the ambiance to the meal, everything about the dining experience says "first class! The food was prepared beyond our satisfaction, and the service was impeccable! Our daughter graduates from UT this May, and we're planning to have her pre- graduation celebration dinner there!
Valentine's Day at Ruth's Chris
Lovely restaurant. Even though it is a steak restaurant, we don't eat meat and still enjoy a great meal here. We do eat seafood, which is delicious, and they offer a vegetarian plate! Steve is the best server!!

Typical Ruth Chris, meat lovers experience with very good service and an overpriced bar. The steaks come out grilled to perfection on a sizzling, buttery laden plate. Sides are sharing size. The only issue I have is the over priced drinks. Either cut the prices or increase the pour size. The river view tables unfortunately not only look at the river but the industrial complex on the other side of the river. Forgot to mention, the service is above average at all times. They were busy on 2/13 (day before Valentines), our table was ready when promised and with their team approach to service all our needs were fulfilled promptly.

Excellent meal, including steak cooked to perfection, great wine selection and Andy our server was on top of his game. My wife and I had a memorable night. Will be back again.
