The front door was very creaky, literally
heard it every couple of minutes. Disturbed my birthday dinner.
Food wasn’t at its best, I usually enjoy everything thing I eat here. Wasn’t ecstatic about this meal.

Service was amazing.

Way too much butter on the food items, but overall great food. Love the outdoor dining, but would be great if the restaurant could add more an awning or wind buffer.

Server was slow, insensitive to basic serving needs, careless, and dragged our dinner for three hours. Reported to the manager about our server issues but he didn’t do anything. The server walked away to other table forgetting to give us the coffee pot and served other table. Weird attitude that almost led to a feel like she was a little off or in drugs. Terrible dinner experience and we won’t return to this location again.

We were seated in the bar area, as they did not have our reservation, but we had the confirmation. We were a party of 6. It took over 30 mi utesntongwtnoir drink order, while people were being served at the bar a second round. Our server was friendly, but did not come around to check on our water order or clear items off our table to make room for appetizer plates, empty glasses and plates sat at the end of the table until our entrees came out. We ordered a bottle of wine to be served with our steaks with dinner, but did not get it for 10 minutes into our meal. One guest ordered a drink which they did not receive. Our bill was nearly $800, and for that it is expected to have a better dining experience.

The food was great but service was slow it took a long time to get second round for drinks and our waiter was very inattentive however it looked like he was very busy so my guess is he had too many tables or was overwhelmed but he forgot drinks we never got our bread basket that we asked for, not the service we are used to at Ruth’s

Anniversary dinner. Sat at a booth that was really dark. Had to wait along time for our drinks. Salads came out quick. Our food came out before we finished our salads. We ordered wine with our dinner. We had fo wait for it to come after our dinner came out. Waited forever for our server to wrap up our food to take for home. Complimentary cheesecake tasted sour. The restaurant is really loud. Food was good.

Since it’s opening, this has always been my favorite RC. And, I appreciate that there was a small wine dinner going on last night but bar and food service were extremely slow (not the fault of the server), we waited for a specialty cocktail for close to 1/2 hour before the bartender let our server know that the smoker was not working and then waited another 10 minutes for a regular drink. One of the bartenders needed much more schooling on making cocktails. Food was fabulous, as always but 3 hours for a cocktail and a Ruth’s Classic dinner was a bit long.

Very late start for service.. the waitress didn’t come over for about 15 minutes then I ordered a drink that took forever to not get cause they are out of them . Then a friend finally got her drink which I still didn’t get one until the first cause arrived. The beef cappuccio really completely sucked . The server took that off thank hod cause it wasn’t eaten . Salads basically thrown on the table without the offer of ground pepper which I kinda expected cause hello it’s Ruth Chris . The steak was over cooked but whatever.. kinda expected it cause of the overall experience.. not a usual Ruth Chris experience . It was a Birthday occasion kinda expected more.

The name Ruth’s Chris implies a certain level of quality food and overall dining experience. In this case, the Odenton Ruth’s Chris did not come close to the dining experience we’ve had many times at the Annapolis Ruth’s Chris. The food (three of us had steaks, one had the pork chop) was mediocre from the Caesar salad to the entrees to the sides. The room was so noisy we could hardly hear each other. The only positive element of our dining experience was the server. Oh well, the next time we are craving a good steak we will head to Annapolis.

We really enjoyed the time we spent at Ruth’s Chris.
Colin was a great server and was very attentive.
Our only complaint was we had reservations for 7pm and we were told it would be 5-10 minute but ended up being 30 minutes. I feel when you make a reservation at a certain time you should be accommodated .
But truly that was the only issue. We have been to location several times and have always enjoyed our time there and did last night as well.

We’ve been celebrating at Ruth Chris for over 12 years for our anniversary and for Valentine’s Day as a tradition or whenever my husband may return from a deployment. We were pretty disappointed that we were seated 30 minutes after our reservation time. My husband always orders the lamb as he has allergies to other meat, we were told they have been out but it is listed on the online menu and in house menu. Otherwise, it was great per usual. Thank you
