As always the food, service, and view was superb. My only complaint was the persons at the table next to us. We sat next to a table of eight that were drinking quite heavily. The more they drank the louder and more foul mouthed they became which disturbed us greatly.

My niece and were ending our vacation. We stayed at Hilton wilmington Riverside where Ruth Chris is located. There were thunderstorms in the area so we decided to stay in and eat at Ruth Chris. Excellent choice. There were 2 groups of Classics meals which included appetizer, entree and dessert for one price. We decided in the 6 oz filet and the 16 oz ribeye. Excellent meal, excellent service. We thoroughly enjoyed.

Food was cooked to perfection. The table ordered seafood as well as steak. Everyone mentioned how much flavor there was and how well it was cooked. Too full to try anything for dessert though so no comment on that. Lobster mac and cheese is huge portion. Sides are good for splitting. Appetizers are good for small eater, it was plenty of food. Server was outstanding, friendly, helpful and attentive. View is great. ask for a window seat. Great place to watch the sun set.

Service was very good. View was very nice. Steaks came out not cooked correctly and sent back. When they came back one of them was burnt up on edges. I go to Ruth's Chris for a very good steak and was not satisfied with this one at all.

Normally we have A wonderful experience at Ruth Chris steakhouse. However we went there hoping to have our meal done in time to watch fireworks on the river. Our server was pleasant. But when all of the tables around us seemed to be getting their meals and we were still waiting, we knew something wasn't right. We asked our server and he said they were completely by soon. 20 minutes later, no dinners and our wine was done. Server brought us another bottle of which broke when decanting it. By this time we spoke with management and he had no answer for why our meals were not done. Third bottle of wine came out and the fireworks were starting. Then our food finally arrived. Close to 1 hr 15 minutes. Needless to say, our entire dinner was comped. Management did the right thing....

Our 27th anniversary so we planned on paying up for a special meal; had done likewise in the past but this time we were disappointed. Long waits for service, although we were seated relatively early. Ran low on water, refills were rare, and refill on bread was not offered. Even ordered coffee at meals end, no offer for refill. Nice touches helped offset some, like rose petals on the table, but wife and I did feel less than satisfied upon leaving. Wish a manger would have stopped by to chick on satisfaction, but that too was missing.

First time to a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and I can honestly say that the steak I ordered was the best have I ever tasted in all of my 52 yrs! It was our 30th anniversary and the staff had two red roses on the table with the best view of the river in the whole restaurant. I want to thank the staff for making our visit, one that my wife and I, will remember forever!

Omg. My hubby and I celebrated 5 years of marriage. And I'm telling this place was amazing. The food was the killer. In a awesome way. We're already making plans to go back with another couple in July. Stuffed chicken breast. Amazing! ! Great waitress named Mandy. She had the best customer service. 5stars

We had a delightful anniversary celebration!
The service was impeccable and our food and drink selections were delicious! We are thankful to Tomil our waiter and to Eric the general manager who attended to every detail, including presenting a bottle of champagne and special appetizers that were arranged in advance by our daughter and our son-in-law. It all made for a most memorable dining experience!!!

A wonderful dining experience. The food is always great and such a wonderful atmosphere. Our waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful as always. A great time was had and loved getting together with friends.
Never a disappointment!
We LOVE Ruth's Chris. Fine dining at its best, especially if you are a steak lover. While it IS pricey, it is worth every penny for the quality of the food and service. This is our go-to restaurant for a special occasion. EVERYTHING is delicious, from the salads and appetizers all the way to the desserts. You can't go wrong dining here.
Questionable Meal Quality
Have eaten here 3 times in past two years and the quality of the Cowboy Ribeye has steadily declined. On this visit, I was actually served two pieces of steak, obviously not from the same cut. For the price, this is not even a

The food was amazing!!! The service was even better. We had an incredible view of the sunset over the water. The staff treated us with the upmost respect and treated us to a glass of free champagne and desserts. The outside dining area was very romantic. Since this was a very special occasion for my husband and me, we chose to dine at Ruth's Chris and will absolutely be coming back!

Everytime im in wilmington i make it to ruth's chris .... I don't know if people know this, but ruth's is a franchise and therefore it does differ from franchise to franchise. I love the ambience here, the attn to detail here and the cheesecake is still round as opposed to wedge shape!!!!:-)
Also it's really sweet that they always either send a card or a follow up phone call asking you how your visit went...
Expensive yes but ...
We went to celebrate my wife's sister's birthday and it felt festive start to finish. We went for the 3-course meal deals so the only additions were cocktails and a bottle of wine. Steaks were superb, everything was well worth the price. Sure it's expensive but if it's a special occasion you will have an experience to remember. The best feature is the enormous picture window that overlooks the Cape Fear river. This was my first time at any Ruth's Chris and I can say it will not be my last.
I had heard a lot about Ruth's Chris and always wanted to go there. It turned out to be, perhaps the best meal I have ever had. I don't have the words to describe the food, but the steak turned out to be the best in 60 years of eating steak. The whole staff was great, professional and very knowledgeably. While the meal for three wasn't cheap, it was not as expensive as I had anticipated that it would be. Like my grandfather taught me, I got what I paid for. All in all, a great event and one I look forward to repeating.

I must have changed the time of the reservations 5 times, but the woman who answered the phone was pleasant, patient, and wonderful! Our waiters were personable and attentive, and the food was unbelievable! I think it was the best meal my family had in years! A bit pricey but so well prepared. Our compliments to the chef!!!
Service was good, but not great. Fix electrical!
Service was good, but not great. My waiter was seemed a little bumbling at times, and the lights kept flickering on and off in the dinning area. Needless to say I do not pay 200 dollars for a two course meal with for clumsy service and an electrical issue that ruins the atmosphere.
No Scenic View for Us
We dined at Ruth Chris early mid week to accommodate a performance at CFCC. The restaurant is in the Hilton hotel along the Cape Fear River....the dining room overlooks the river, the bar does not. The dining toom blinds were closed the entire time we were there so we were unable to enjoy the river view. The dining room is darker and decorated in traditional steak house décor. While not horrible, the dining room could use a bit of a facelift....looks tired.The service was attentive but the servers had plenty of chance to stand around and talk with one another in the dining room while we and other were eating.....not terribly professional.
The 11 ounce filets were excellent....both medium rare .... cooked perfectly. The creamed spinach was also very tasty. The lyonnaise potatoes looked somewhat overcooked and not particular appealing but tasted OK. The chocolate dessert was delicious, too and just the right size for ending the meal.
We would go back to Ruth Chris in another city..........just probably not return to this one in Wilmington.
Food was amazing, server was horrible! The pepper shaker didn't work. Server got mad when I asked for a new one. I watched him drop someone's credit card on the ground and didn't realize it and a guest brought it back to the owner. When he dropped the check off, he had left a credit card slip from the previous guest in there as well. Server was very scatter brained! Not very impressed, I'll take the 2 hour drive and go to Raleigh for now on!!
Two very special occasions well celebrated.
We were a group of six celebrating a 90th birthday and a 72nd wedding anniversary two very special occasions. The services performed were outstanding and the food even better. We enjoyed every bite. I strongly recommend Ruth Crist located in the Hilton Hotel in Wilmington, NC. You will enjoy every minute you're there and will be well taken care of by the staff.
