About Ruth's Chris Steak House - Charlotte - South Park
Welcome to Ruth's Chris Steak House. As founder Ruth Fertel used to say, "If you've ever had a filet this good, welcome back." We take steak seriously, but we're also serious about making sure you have a good time. So you won't find the stodgy, uptight attitude you might find at other steak houses. Our SouthPark location, created in the classic Southern style, features a spacious dining room and private dining areas. Surrounded by dark hardwoods and artisan tiling, you'll feel as if you're back in New Orleans. All beef is USDA Prime, prepared in 1800 degree broilers and served on 500 degree plates, and all accoutrements inspired by Ruth's New Orleans heritage. Let us know of any specific requests for an evening with that special someone, and we'll take care of the details. Life's too short to eat anywhere else.

Ruth's Chris Steak House - Charlotte - South Park Ratings and Reviews

Ruths Chris is normally my go to and I've been to this location several times, but the food this time around was disappointing. To start the wedge salad I had was devoid of flavor. Even slathered in blue cheese there was nothing going on. The heart of ribeye that was listed as "chef recommends" was a very disappointing cut of meat. It tried to be the best of both worlds...kind of like a filet but with the added ribeye flavor. This one failed miserably. It lacked the flavor of a ribeye and added the toughness of a NY strip. I was very disappointed with myself for not asking what this steak was before I ordered it. It was prepared to the right temperature but again lacked any real flavor. The asparagus was also extremely disappointing. Tiny, flimsy pieces that really were not worthy of a high end steakhouse. That said they had a great local double IPA on tap that I enjoyed and the service was top notch. The problem was I was let down with every food item I ordered this time around.

We consider Ruth Chris one of Americas great steakhouses. We have consistently had outstanding quality steaks at every Ruth Chris restaurant we have visited including New York City, Birmingham, AL, Charlotte, NC, Greenville, SC, etc.

We had a great meal at Ruth Chris last weekend. Here are my likes and dislikes:
- Food and drinks are absolutely incredible.
-Service is top of the line
-Nice location, didn't need to valet (although they have valet)
-Our table was right on top of another table and there were many open tables they could have put us at that would have been more comfortable. Last time I used Open Table we had the same experience at a different restaurant.......just bad luck? We were sat at the worst table in the restaurant. :(
-Prices. We are used to paying a lot of money, but it seems Ruth Chris keeps pushing the prices up. We could have eaten at an equivalent restaurant for 20% less. It was borderline rude....pricing is just outrageous. They are making the restaurant too exclusive.

The waiter kept calling us the Bradleys, but we were fine with it. The food didn't seem to be as good this time. My steak and lobster both were overcooked. Usually they are not. We had a great bottle of Moscato, and the salads were delicious.

Everything was exceptional from the moment we stepped out of the car. Valet was quick and courteous, we were met my the hostess at the door and seated upon arrival. Our server Timothy showed great southern hospitality and gave us a night to remember with his fantastic service and knowledge in both food and wine .. We couldn't have asked for better! Both managers, Chris and Chris, were very friendly and hospitable and made us feel very welcome and at home. I don't know how I will ever justify going anywhere else! We stopped for a drink at the bar on our way out and Ben was the icing on the cake. He gave great suggestions for after dinner drinks and I couldn't have made a better decision! Thanks to all for a fantastic night!

We went for Restaurant Week on the last day. There was a mistake made with the reservations, the young ladies at the front were very nasty, rude and not accommodating. The manager Chris came and worked things out, which we appreciated very much. The Stuffed Chicken Breast and all the steaks were very good (even without the familiar sizzle when the food is set in front of you.) The sides were cold (they were corrected), they ran out of bread (hard cold rolls). Sad was the Brussel sprouts I waited 2 months for were NOT how I remembered them. Simone our waitress was AMAZING and her care overshadowed everything that was not pleasant. Chris she needs a special gift, without her consumers would have been lost Sunday evening.

Ruth Chris is always a hit. My favorite steak house and restaurant for a special occasion. The service and food are always outstanding. Steaks are cooked to perfection and your food stays hot through the entire meal. A great wine selection too.

We were greeted by the staff when we arrived and while walking to/from our table. We dined early, with a reservation, but they took us to a table next to staff's prep/pick-up area. They were kind to put us at a different table upon our request. Our Server, Alan did an outstanding job. We will request him when we make a reservation again.
Our salads were fresh and the homemade dressing was good. I would have preferred my blue cheese dressing with chunks of cheese instead of smooth. Both of our filet's were perfectly prepared. My husband's additional shrimp were very good. The mashed potatoes and sautéed mushrooms were very good. The bread was fresh. We brought our own wine and Alan offered to decant it for us. We each had the small cheese cake and bread pudding. I was not found of the bread pudding, and our server, Alan was quick to rectify that.
I would have given an outstanding rating if it had not been for the few things I mentioned. There may be many people who would differ from my opinion of the dressing and bread pudding; thus, I would highly recommend Ruth Chris' Steak House to anyone reading this.
We look forward to out next visit, and thank everyone at Ruth Chris' Steak House for an outstanding evening.

I realize we went during restaurant week and they were trying to get as many people in and out as possible, but we had barely been seated at our table and the waiter was right on us to order drinks . We were celebrating my friend's birthday and catching up and were constantly being interrupted by the wait staff. Even though it was restaurant week it would have been nice to be given the time to eat out meal leisurely.

My husband and I have been to Ruth Chris several times.We normally go to the uptown location.However, opted for Southpark. Food has always been excellent. My steak was cook perfect. The service was good but Uptown service is excellent in comparison. Overall , everything was good.

So I was at this same location on Saturday and tonight the service and food was totally night and day. Saturday, I was with my best friend and her family (first time there), the waiter didn't engage with us as all; he did with other tables around us but not us. Tonight, I was with my sister and her family, the service was exceptional and it was an extremely special treat. I hope I can talk my friend and her family into coming back because I know they would enjoy the usual extraordinary service that happens at Ruth Chris.

It was our 25th Anniversary and we didn't realize it was Charlotte restaurant week. It was very loud and not as romantic as it usually is. But don't get me wrong the food was amazing, service was excellent and the manager was AWESOME. We will definitely be back but not during a busy event. Highly recommend to anyone who wants a very enjoyable meal!!!

Took advantage of restaurant week so reasonable priced for the meal. The food was great and the service was excellent this particular evening as well. Food was prepared exactly as requested and arrived well before expected. Based on this experience will definitely return for both personal visits and also business if the situation arises...

The food, as always, was excellent. They do not disappoint! Unfortunately, the service this visit was sub par. We were not offered anything to drink besides water, we had to ask multiple times for dinner bread, and our server overall was a bit inattentive.

I always enjoyed my experience at Ruth's Chris in the past. However, I was pretty disappointed with the food and service this time at this location.
Services: It took the waiter a long time to come to our table throughout the dinner. He did not come to our table to check how the food was prepared. We had to ask the hostess to get our waiter. After the filet was redone, he didn't come to check with us either.
Food: We asked for the filet to be prepared medium. It came as rare.
There are a few things that are good. The vodka was tasty. The hostesses were good. The girl who helped the waiter was really good.

Ruth's Chris never disappoints. The food and service were, as always, excellent. Our server, Ryan was top notch and a pleasure to have wait on us. The pace of the meal was just right and gave our group a chance to sit and enjoy and not worry about a thing. We always look forward to our visits here.

Always a great meal at Ruth's Chris. Went during Restaurant Week and it was slightly frenetic. Server appeared slightly disinterested when she learned we were not interested in upgrades, wine, etc. Otherwise another great meal.

Went for restaurant week in Charlotte. Menu was very good, as well as the quality. Definitely got bang for buck, and the best part is no one from waiter to cook skimped on service!! Only drawback..if you have leftovers, bag yourself or check the bag. Waiter left out or side, and really didn't bag to my discretion.
