Description: In 1965, Ruth Fertel mortgaged her home to buy a little steak house in New Orleans named Chris Steak House. After investing her life savings, she proudly added her name to the original. That's how the uniquely name Ruth's Chris Steak House was born. Ruth established this unique restaurant with no restaurant experience, but she vowed to treat every customer like a guest in her own home. And she clearly knew what steak lovers wanted - the very best beef. Today, as always, Ruth's Chris serves only the finest corn-fed Midwestern beef available, broiled in 1800-degree ovens designed by Ruth herself. The steaks are served sizzling on 500-degree plates so every bite is hot and delicious. And while steak is king, the menu also includes expertly executed seafood, lamb, pork, and poultry dishes, as well as classic appetizers, fresh salads, side dishes, and homemade desserts. The award-winning wine list features more than 250 world-class international and domestic labels. Whatever the occasion, Ruth's Chris Steak House is the perfect spot to gather. Unparalleled cuisine, sumptuous surroundings and service that's accomplished yet never fussy - these are the elements of memorable special events.

Father’s Day family dinner in Waikoloa

Had a reservation for father’s Day dinner months ahead of time because, with a party of nine, I figured it would be busy. We were very pleasantly surprised to be seated in a private family room where the other restaurant noise did not reach us and our family noise did not bother anyone else. Was a delightful experience. Being from the Midwest we are used to the food quality from the Ruth’s Chris in downtown Chicago. The food at this restaurant what’s good, and well prepared, but there were a few things lacking. One of our party ordered shoestring potatoes, and another person ordered steak fries. The shoestring potatoes had no flavor and were so over fried that you couldn’t tell there’d been a potato in there in the first place. Again, the steak fries were lackluster in flavor and were soggy and limp. A third person got date 1 pound loaded baked potato and it was well done and very tasty so my recommendation would be to stay away from the other specialty potatoes and stick with the baked.
Service was top-notch as it has been in all other Ruth’s Chris we’ve eaten at. It was a pleasant evening

Had the fresh fish and it was well prepared. Very nice blend of local flair and ingredients to make classic meals shine. Really detailed on prep and presentation of food. A great location in the little shopping area near the hotels.

I dine here often Maui Hawaii , love the wait staff the Chopped salad is the best salad in my world (bar none) and although I admittedly have a bit of an ethical self reflection; on the next suggestion;
The Veal Chop is (to me ) the best thing on the menu!!
So go early get some home made potato chips at the bar or table not everyone knows about these.. and just Beef, Fish, veal and chicken out in what I know to be the best steak house ( chain or not) around!!!

My wife wanted a steak so who am I to tell her no, seafood and fish only? This is located in the Shops of Wailea on the end with good nearby parking if you need to drive. We had a short wait for our table and the service was excellent. Our wine glasses never were empty and well... let’s just say we were like giggling high schoolers when we were done.

The steak was magnificent with a seat and a sizzle that went on for what seemed like a long time. The Lyonnaise potato was out of this world both flavor and texture. I scored some points from the Mrs for taking her here. She loved the caramelized bananas.
