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

First of all the waitress did not correctly record what I ordered. I ordered crab filled mushrooms as an appetizer. After my wife had gotten both her salad and soup, I asked, where my mushrooms were? The waitress replied, "Oh, I thought you wanted sauteed mushrooms with your beef."
She was apologetic and said she would get them immediately. I told her no thank you as my wife had already had her appetizers. However, a few minutes later the waitress brought the mushrooms and said they were courtesy of the restaurant. It was a nice gesture and the mushrooms were excellent.
I ordered 4 oz beef medallions, medium rare. They were brought to me medium at best. They were almost impossible to chew. I did not finish even one of them. I had the other, filled with gristle, boxed up and took it home to my dog. I said nothing as I had made up my mind that Ruth Chris is not the elite restaurant it is rated to be.
Finally, because we had told the waitress, when we arrived, that we were celebrating our birthdays, she brought us two glasses of champagne which while trying to serve them, the glasses slid off the tray, one fully spilling on my wife, and the second coming my way which I managed to duck. The glass hit the floor next to our table, breaking as it did. The restaurant offered to pay for the dry cleaning of my wife's dress, which we declined. My wife took the incident much better than did I.
Apologies were offered, but nothing more. No drinks, no dessert, nothing taken from the bill. Very classless.
We will never again darken the doors of Ruth Chris.

Party of three. Deep fried onion ring appetizer was doughy on the inside from under cooking. One of us had Fillet which was fine. Two of us had ribeye steaks. The ribeye steaks were tough and gristly. Not even sure if they were ribeye because they were not recognizable. One steak still had the "cap" on it like prime rib. The other had three rings of meat connected by gristle. The sides of creamed spinach and mash potatoes were good as usual.
The service was superior, friendly and efficient.

We reserved a table at Ruth's Chris for our 47th wedding anniversary. They have complimentary valet parking and parked our car immediately. The hostess seated us and asked if this was a special occasion and we told her it was our anniversary. Our waiter, Timothy, came over and congratulated us on our anniversary. Timothy told us about a steak that was not listed on the menu and we decided to take his recommendation. We were glad we did. I asked for a wine recommendation to accompany the steaks and he had a very good one. In fact, I had a second glass with our meal. Well, almost a second glass as my wife helped me with the second one. Everything was better than we expected. Ruth's Chris is the place to go for excellent service, food and drinks. Timothy asked if we would let him bring us a special desert and again we agreed. He brought us a wooden plank that said Happy 47th Anniversary written in chocolate sauce. It had a chocolate mousse with whipped cream on top, a bread pudding, a chocolate cheese cake and a vanilla cheese cake with berries on it. They were portioned just right for us. We were delighted! We can't recommend Ruth's Chris, Charlotte South Park enough.

It was good. Kept being told we had to wait for bread to come out of the oven. After a long time they finally brought it and it was ice cold. No way it was in oven recently. Had to ask for another loaf from another waiter.

Visited Ruth's Chris for a friend's birthday and had a wonderful time dining at the bar. Travis & Ben were remarkable hosts. They made spot on martinis, gave great dinner suggestions and were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable in wine pairings. Oh, and they weren't hard on the eyes either!

We came in to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. The restaurant was beautiful. Our server, Chris, was extremely knowledgable of the menu, explaining the process in which the steaks are selected as well as cooked. He offered entree suggestions and accompaniments. The steak and salmon were cooked perfectly. The bread pudding was seriously like no other. The manager was professional, funny and quite entertaining. We will certainly be back. Thank you for a great experience!!

We were a party of 6 celebrating 2 birthdays. It was very nice to have a large round table that allowed everyone to be a part of the conversation. The food was better than I expected. We had steak and seafood dishes with 4 side dishes (lobster mac and cheese, vegetables and potatoes). They were all delicious. We were there on a Thursday night so the restaurant was not very busy.

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.
