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.

The food at Ruth's Chris is fantastic, as is the service. This is the best Ruth's Chris to which I have been. Some of the restaurants are a bit too dark, formal and somber. (Focused on business dinners.) This one is appropriate for everyone. People are dressed in suits, while others are dressed more casually. I have eaten here many times, and the experience is always wonderful.

I DINE HERE FREQUENTLY AND LOVE IT. OUR SERVER ANTHONY AND OUR FOOD WERE BOTH EXCELLENT. I WANT TO STRESS THAT. WHAT DISAPPOINTED ME ABOUT THIS TRIP WAS THERE WAS A GROUP OF GENTLEMEN AT THE CENTER OF THE DINING ROOM. AT SEVERAL POINTS DURING THE EVENING THEY WERE LOUD, USED HORRIBLE LANGUAGE AND BECAME DISAGREEABLE WITH EACH OTHER. MANAGEMENT SHOULD HAVE INTERVENED AND EXITED THEM FROM THE DINING ROOM. THEY WERE A CLEAR DISTURBANCE TO WHAT SHOULD BE A 5 STAR QUALITY MEAL AND EXPERIENCE. I WOULD ASK THAT PROPER DECORUM BECOME A MUST AND ENFORCED.

Let me start by saying I’m not a foodie. That being said, for the cost of our dinner ($238 for 2 people) I was very underwhelmed by the food.

The service and the quality of food are both, frankly, remarkably surprisingly good, given that the location is in the middle of a suburban development. We've been to this location several times now and have been impressed with the high level of service. The decor updates the traditional steakhouse concept. Our waiter, a highly professional man named Henry, made a very good recommendation for wine. It was as if he could read our minds when it came to the kind of wine my wife and I like. Keep in mind that many of the dishes are high on the calorie counter. One member of our party stuck with apps rather than entrees to try to manage that issue effectively. We will be sure to return to this location.

What an amazing dining experience. My husband and I come for only very special occasions, and have lucky enough to come to this restaurant three times over the years. It is always perfect - exceptional service, perfectly prepared steaks, delicious sides and desserts. A flawless meal! It never disappoints.

Normally a great place but Sunday night they were off their game. Based on prior experiences we will absolutely give it another try and would still recommend but at those prices they shouldn't have trainees serving without backup.

Three of us ordered steaks, all medium rare. One was perfect. One was over cooked. One was under cooked. The sides, wine, dessert and service were all excellent but...it’s a steakhouse. They have to get the steaks right. Right?

The food was excellent as well as the service! I'd suggest sitting tables a bit further apart earlier in the evening to give those that booked early to beat the crowd the opportunity to not feel crowded.

When we celebrated my husband's birthday in July at Ruth Chris in Gaithersburg, I knew we had to come back for my birthday celebration in September. Staff is wonderful...very attentive without being intrusive. Table is nicely decorated with Happy Bday wishes. I had the Sea Bass. Good flavor especially with the sauce on top. My husband had the strip steak and he shared a couple of bites. So much flavor and tender...perfectly cooked. Crème Brule is the best! Enjoyed our evening there!

When my entree was served, I touched the “hot plate” trying to move it out of the way of the server who was putting my potato on the table and burned the hell out of my fingers. They brought me a glass of ice water and burn cream, which was - oh so handy. Apparently this must happen frequently. They need to say “Do NOT touch the plate, you will get 1st degree burns!” Not just “hot plate.” Dinner was 2 hours ago, and my fingers are swollen, red and hurt a lot! They didn’t even offer to comp so much as a glass of wine. I will never eat here again. Dinner was delicious but walked out in serious pain! Not worth it in the long run.

Took 15 minutes for a waiter to come and take my drink order and even then, I had to ask someone else to get him for me. The bread was cold and hard. My drink and my food were excellent, but I come for the service I receive at other Ruth Chris’. I was very disappointed.

Food and service were great. The waiter was very attentive and took time explaining the menu.... and gladly made recommendation substitutions or switches to accomdodate various tastes or diet. The setting in a new suburban plaza seemed a little cheap.... in that the food and service matched with the price, but the setting didn’t.
