Bar is lacking. Smaller drinks but cost is up. Apparently there is no Happy Hour despite being at 100% capacity. If there is a Happy Hour the bar attendants kept it a secret. Honestly, I have the same or better bar service and quality of...liquor at smaller establishments at a better price point. Food was good but costly. To sum it up wife seems to think the night out a RC's is just not worth the cost anymore and thus it is getting harder to go on a regular basis, as we use to. Now you put up with kids, improper dress (T shirts and shorts) and less wait staff.More

We had an excellent meal at Ruth’s Chris in Destin on Saturday night, very good caesar salad and side dishes but the star was our Steaks, perfectly done Filet and Ribeye, nice wine selection and our waiter Jerry was awesome, expensive but enough for a...second meal.More

Food and drinks were fantastic as always at Ruth's Chris. From the appetizers to the steak they always get it right. Our sever was Eugene who did a great job with the help of a couple others cleaning the table, taking plates getting water etc....It is always a great trip when I know there is a Ruth's Chris in the city that I am visiting. Always look forward to this great restaurant.More

The steak was the best we have ever had. My wife and I both had the rib-eye. It is a nice size steak. The salad and baked potato were nothing special. Our waiter and others were all very polite and helpful. My wife also enjoyed...the moscato. If you are worried about the price, do not go here. It is expensive, but it is worth it.More

We decided upon Ruth’s Chris steakhouse for our 25th Wedding Anniversary dinner because we used to live in Atlanta and heard great things about it! Upon arriving at the Destin restaurant as soon as they opened we were warmly greeted, our reservation was confirmed, and...we were told to have a seat in the lounge-area to wait for our table to be prepared. While waiting about 15 minutes in an empty restaurant, (and just a few folks in the bar) an older couple came in and said they did not have a reservation and they were taken to a table right away. I heard the older gentleman say “Thanks for accommodating us” which was very nice for them, but we were confused as to why we really had to wait. Our server Alex was very nice and professional. My husband tried the drink specials, which he loved, and I had the Moscato, which was delicious. My glass of wine was barely filled, I had to order wine 3 times just to get my fill and all 3 times it was barely filled. Not at all normal for me. When it came time to order our food, our server promoted that the steaks were “corn-fed”. I know I probably sounded a little picky but I asked if they had better quality steaks, like grass-fed or at least free-range. I’m sure most folks don’t know but cows don’t naturally eat corn and it causes them to grow too large and become unhealthy, also the corn they are fed are GMO and it makes them sick so that they need antibiotics. We assumed the higher prices for the steaks meant a better quality piece of meat. I was quite taken aback when they touted it as if it’s something to be proud of. I ordered a ribeye and it was good but not amazing, it came out on a hot plate to keep it sizzling, which was nice feature. Our sides consisted of scalloped potatoes and creamed spinach, both of which really didn’t have much flavor and were disappointing. We also added steamed shrimp and they tasted fishy and were rubbery almost like they were microwaved. The desert was worth saving room for, we had the flourless chocolate cake the crème bruleee and both were very yummy! Since it was our Anniversary, we were so excited for a wonderful date, they comped one of our desserts but we really didn’t feel special. We probably won’t be going back since the food was not as outstanding as the reviews made us to believe.More

Food was much better this time around. My steak was cooked correctly and the escargot that was a todays special was actually quite good. Since COVID has caused so many changes for restaurants wanted to write this review and let everyone know how Ruth Chris...steakhouse has adapted to the changes. Customers were seated quite far apart with empty tables still set up to create the ambiance that this restaurant is known for. Menus were disposable, there were numerous stations set up around the restaurant and bar of hand sanitizer for use by the guests and staff. all the servers wore masks and much care was taken as they served each table. The main bar was closed but was relocated to a different area so you could hang there while waiting for your table. I enjoyed an amaretto sour while we waited to be seated. Food was better than i have had in the past so kudos to the chef. My filet was on point cooked to perfection and was as buttery as it could be. Would recommend a visit if you dont mind spending some money to enjoy a classy atmosphere for dinner.More

Do not know but it is pricey. Likely in the $30.00 range. Call the restaurant or Google the menu. Thanks.
