Ruth's Chris Steak House - Gaithersburg
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.

We’ll be open for Takeout and Delivery. Indulge with our Celebration Feast for four or our special two-dinner New Year’s Eve Celebration.
Da our server was amazing. Suggested nice appetizers. Wonderful job taking care of us. I would strongly recommend him.
Outstanding service and fantastic food. The steaks were cooked perfectly and paired very well with the wine. My parents are repeat customers and they said this was the best dinner so far.
A little better than last time but had upset stomach we a few hours later
wonderful meal, with exception of asparagus, which was obviously not up to usual standards, and taken off bill.
Intend to come back , but wish parking was closer or valet.
Staff was superb, food was perfectly prepared and tasted delicious.
I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. Everything was absolutely amazing from the food, staff, everything. The table was decorated with confetti and a birthday card. We loved everything about it!
Always a great experience.
Ruth’s Chris never disappoints even during a pandemic. Our waiter Chris was first rate. The Ruth’s classic special is the way to go.
Our waiter Danny was great!! He was very personable and knowledgeable, and even though we were there late he never tried to rush us. Food was great as always
Service was the best it’s been in years. Food was delicious.
Service was great, though drinks were a little slow. They placed everyone in one dinning room instead of splitting it between the two they have, so I was constantly yelling across the table to have a conversation and there were only 6 of us.
Jacob was awesome
Da was our server and he was very knowledgable and made some great suggestions on both food and beverages.
All four steaks were over cooked. Very disappointed!
Thank you for your candid review. We hold ourselves to the highest brand standards for food quality and what you describe is not consistent with our standards. We will work hard to improve and appreciate you bringing this to our attention.
My husband and I went here tonight for my 70th birthday food was absolutely outstanding and so was the service.
Food was great, as was the service.
I was disappointed with the lack of appropriate dress by other patrons. Perhaps it's the location but the ambiance was not what we expected.
We will return to Ruth Chris, just not to this location.
I feel there are better steak houses in the area such as Capital Grille and BLT Steak. The only reason we went was because we were given a gift card. Our steaks were not cooked to our specifications and I saw this at other tables as well. At one table, 5 out of 8 people had to send their entrees back due to the cook not being correct. My lemon drop drink came out with salt on the rim, not sugar and it had to be sent back as well. I found some of the food to be overly salty and while the entrees came out super hot, the side dishes were not so hot. Service was fine though at times felt a little rushed.
They really made my girlfriend’s birthday special - table decoration and a quiet candle in a birthday dessert absolutely put the crown on the wonderful service & food.
Every visit to this location is excellent. We have been to the Ruth’s Chris in Baltimore and it doesn’t compare to the Gaithersburg location. Food and service are always fantastic. Our server Kelsey was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the menu.
Thank you for always being amazing Ruth’s Chris staff!!
We were visiting the area and wanted to take some family members to eat with us. They enjoyed the food, service, and menu choices.
We were always a fan of Ruth Chris but they closed the one near us.
If you like good steak give them a try.
Very good service food very good
Another excellent meal at Ruth’s Chris, this time for our anniversary. There were plenty of tables available on a warm, Fourth of July Monday when we arrived at 6:00, but a number of them filled as we were enjoying our meal. Ruth’s Chris always has an outstanding fillet, tender and juicy and prepared just right. The prix fixe menu offered a surf and turf including a salad or lobster bisque, the entree, a side - the garlic mashed were good but could have used a bit more garlic for my taste - and a personal size bread pudding for dessert. While the $67 price seemed a bit steep and the lobster smaller than normal, market prices for lobster made this cost and small lobster tail plus the complete meal an acceptable price. And the lobster tail was so soft and sweet! For a well-prepared meal of excellent meat and seafood, Ruth’s Chris is the perfect place for a special occasion.
Crab cakes were mushy, First time we had a poor cut of steak, very fatty. Servers were clearing plates while we were still eating. The second time, had to shoo them away. This location is walking distance from my home, but we will drive to the other locations in the future. Don’t plan to come back to the Gaithersburg location unfortunately. We spent a lot of money and we’re disappointed in the experience.
We truly appreciate your feedback because it helps us improve. This is not at all the experience we aim to provide. We have passed your feedback along to the upper management team for this location to ensure this doesn't happen again. Thank you!
Our waiter was, at best, inattentive. I brought people from two families to get to know one another before a wedding the next day.. I went there for impeccable service. Everyone of my guests thought the service was terrible. People had to ask two or three times for basic things. It really put a damper on the occasion.
The facility is terrible. It is not like ant Ruth Chris I’ve been in. It’s a box space in a outdoor mall. I couldn’t even find it because there were no major signs.
When I pay $1,000+ for dinner I don’t expect terrible service and a cheap atmosphere. Terrible experience. The only reason I gave three stars was the food was excellent. I will never go to this location again.
For my daughter first to be in steak house. She really enjoyed everything from service to the food. Those bread they serve are one of the best. One the best customer service I seen so far…
The filet, salad, wine and service was delicious. The add on crab cake (Oscar) is mostly filler, small and not good. Don’t get that!
Jason was incredible!!!
Excellent Service and consistent quality food in an easy location from my home. Thank you and welcome back to full service dining.
A bit pricey for the food. Service was excellent.
Fantastic from the welcome to the menu through service. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience or meal.
Recently relocated from MI where RC is an institution and top class restaurant on all perspectives.
This time around was our first visit at a RC restaurant in MD. Unfortunately, it was a disappointment. Service was way too slow when the restaurant was far from packed. Quality of steaks was not as we’re used to and my wife and daughter received their fillet prepared not to the ordered temperature and had to send it back.
Sides portions were smaller and not as tasty .
We’re going to look for alternatives next time around. What a shame.
Excellent service! Thank you Eric
our amazing server!!
The food, considering the quality, was way overpriced. Very disappointing. However, service was great, as was the wine selection
Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. We always want your meal to be perfect so you can focus on enjoying your experience. We will work with our team to improve and hope to welcome you in again soon.
Great dining experience! Treated us very well as we celebrated 2 birthdays! Surprised us with dessert & candles!
The food was amazing! Never been disappointed.
Jason and Chris provided superb service to me and my husband and friends. We dined to celebrate my husband’s birthday.
Father’s day with great company. Everything was fantastic!
Kelsey our server was great. The food was great. The experience was very positive.
The kitchen messed up my dinner entree order and I waited 20 minutes for them to bring out the correct item. On top of that, it was my birthday and nothing was brought out at dessert time to mark the occasion. The waiter did not offer to make any adjustment on the bill either. Disappointed!
Huge fans of Ruth’s, but they missed the mark this time around. The server was not very attentive. Of the three steaks we ordered only one came sizzling, and that was AFTER we sent it back to be cooked a little more. Oh, and no ice wine for dessert. I’ll go back, but with lower expectations.
