Ruth's Chris Steak House was founded in New Orleans, Louisiana by Ruth Fertel, a single mother of two who wanted a better life for herself and her two sons. She purchased "Chris" steakhouse in New Orleans which had been operated for the 38 years prior. She changed the name to Ruth's Chris when a fire forced her to move from the original location. Today, there are 142 Ruth’s Chris Steak House restaurants across the globe. We look forward to our opening in Gaithersburg, MD.

This is our favorite Ruth's Chris location. All of the employees are friendly and helpful. Henry was our waiter, and his service was excellent. The dining rooms are comfortable and the tables are nicely spaced apart so that nobody is bumping into anyone or bothered by nearby conversations. It's always a pleasure to dine here.

The filet medium rare was perfect in the sizzling butter. Ending to a perfect dinner was the lava cake!

Really nice except for a table with two kids that were quite loud! Kind of took away from the Valentines celebration. Parents didn’t seem to care and the waiter seemed to be egging them on. Kind of a shame!

I would have given 5 stars for food but we were served coffee that had been sitting a while - one can tell when pouring the cream and the color of the cream is dull color. And it wasn’t hot. Finer restaurants have found a way to brew in real time - especially for $3.50 a cup. Also we weren’t offered a refill.

My husband and I visited Ruth’s @ Crown for Valentine’s Day. Ruth’s is our favorite special occasion restaurant. The service was great. The food is consistently great. Our waitress Kirsten was outstanding. Not only was she personable and attentive as a waitress but after our meal she presented us with a handwritten note of thanks highlighting all the small talk comments we made. What an impressive touch!

We drove 45 min. each way to come there to celebrate our 32nd anniversary. The side dish portions were very small and were barely even warm when delivered to our table. The steaks we had were good, not great as we had expected. Our server never followed up after he delivered our meals and we were stuck with the lukewarm sides. We finally got his attention well after we finished our meals and asked for a dessert menu which he delivered but then he never came back to take our order. After waiting nearly 20 min. and not even seeing our waiter again, we finally had to ask the manager for our check. The manager was very kind and offered us dessert but by that point we just wanted to leave and get the 45 min. trip back home over before it got too late. He sent us home with a cheesecake dessert to go on the house but not having the crème brulee we had hoped for just added to our disappointment. The manager, whose name I can't recall, I think it may have been Robert, as well as the busy boy were wonderful but that waiter, Reuben, was THE WORST! BTW: We have dined at Ruth's Chris restaurants in downtown Bethesda, Ocean City MD and Austin TX in the past and thoroughly enjoyed it each time. This was our first visit to the Gaithersburg location and we expected so much more than we got for the high price we paid for that meal. We could not recommend this place to anyone based on our experience. In fact, we wish we hadn't chosen to dine there for such a special dinner...

Always enjoy Ruth’s Chris. Outstanding food and service. Henry is the best. Very attentive and so personable. We brought our two grandsons (12 & 15) for and early Valentine’s dinner. He made them feel so special and engaged them in conversation. It’s our go to restaurant when we have guests come to town or family night out. Can’t go wrong here.

The food for our party was good except for my steak, it did not meet my expectations. I guess expected better from R. Chris. I did not want to return it and make a big deal as we were with another couple. The steak was tough, for this kind of money I expected a much better quality steak. On a positive note, the sides dishes, dessert including the wine were very good. Appreciated the Happy Anniversary confetti on the table and free dessert. I would recommend this restaurant if asked but I would not do it voluntarily.

First time we were disappointed here - no ribeyes? At at steakhouse over the weekend? How?
We will be back, but we hopefully this massive issue will be resolved - additionally - waiters and restaurant team members must notify patrons right off the bat and not wait - that sets a bad tone for dinner - we will give them one more chance

This was my first time ever going to Ruth Chris. I felt as though my waiter was kind, but not super focused and attentive. I think there are similar caliber restaurants that have a better atmosphere and create a better experience for guests.

We’ve been here three times and each time have had to send our steaks back. We always order them medium rare and this last time they came out raw and cold in the center. The manager was very kind and apologetic but I don’t understand why the chefs at an upscale steakhouse can’t seem to cook steaks correctly.

This was our first time at this particular Ruth's Chris and we were very impressed, as usual. What made the evening extra special was our waiter, Michael. He recommended a wonderful wine (turns out he's a certified sommelier). He also explained how the restaurant chain came to be named Ruth's Chris. We learned a lot and enjoyed our fabulous meal!

The wait staff on the bar side were quite friendly and the bar food was very good. On the more formal side of the restaurant, where we had a reservation, I was surprised that our request for a booth was denied despite very few people in the restaurant. Instead, they tried to squeeze us into a very small table which is when we decided to go to the bar. Had they been more accommodating on the formal side of the restaurant, we would have spent quite a bit more money, and been more inclined to return.

KETO FRIENDLY! After a few weeks on the Keto diet, we wanted to treat ourselves to a night out, but not impair the progress we’d made. Ruth’s was wonderful option. Sashimi, Crab-tini (not a menu item, but ask for it), steaks, salads and mushrooms. All within our scope. The food was amazing as usual, and our server Henry, was outstanding. Attentive and personable. We’ve dine here before, and will dine here again, but next time we’ll ask for Henry.

Christmas dinner was fabulous. Service by Jacob was superb. We had one very picky person in our party and our server and RC menu even accommodated her eccentric behavior.

We have been RC Patrons for years in various locations around the country. Just learned about the history and found it fascinating. Gaithersburg location was excellent
