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.

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.

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.

I have eaten here and at other RCSH locations many times. Food and atmosphere is always top notch. On this occasion however, we did not get the expected attention from the wait staff. We had to flag down our waiter for things like drink refreshes, table cleared, dessert menu etc. Just not to the level we usually get.

Been here MANY times, the food was excellent, but the service was fair and our server forgot or neglected to give my wife her rose for Mother's Day. The prices have been jacked up so high I feel that no food is worth that price. We certainly can get the same TYPE of meal for half the price = 1 bar drink, no appetizers, one filet each, two sides and no dessert, etc. = $150! $177 with tip. Last time we were there was with a big family group and the service was horrible. Got to do better Ruth's Chris!

The service was no less than spectacular thanks to the awesome HENRY. From the moment he met us at the host stand with his warm and welcoming personality., we knew we would be spoiled. He made my mother’s special day so very memorable and she appreciated his many caring efforts and his infectious and sweet ways. Her gristle veined rib eye was even replaced gracefully and elegantly packaged for her to take home.

Despite the stellar service, the kitchen almost completely disappointed us. The filet mignons were dry and difficult to cut. Mine skidded off the tiny signature plate three times whist trying to cut it. Also mine did not have the melted butter on top which I quite like. The famous sizzle I looked forward to hearing was more like a shhhh. The once fabulous creamed spinach was so thin that it dripped threw the fork and could not be eaten. Soup spoons may have helped but it was fairly tasteless anyway.

The warm bread loaf and large baked potatoes -fully loaded- reminded us of our many many former great dining experiences at several other locations, but this time we were severely let down. I have been invited , as a professional food critic and travel writer, to a tasters choice dinner for Prisoner Winery which I think I must decline.

Ruth Chris used to be the best steak restaurant in town but in the last <5 years they have gone down hill. The food is not the best, but it’s still ok. I can’t pin point the issue but the quality of beef is no longer there. Thus they are charging way too much for just an OK steak.

I love Ruth's Chris in Bethesda and thought the Gaithersburg location would be the same; not really. We ordered one steak well and one medium well. The medium well was almost burnt on the outside and rare on the inside. I sliced the meat and finished cooking it on my plate (that's how hot the plates were). I'm not sure if it is a trend to have the meat so dark and dry looking on the outside, maybe the plates are a little too hot , and rare on the inside, regardless of the order? All in all we had a great time and the seafood tower is always delicious!

Long wait for the drinks to arrive.
The filet was undercooked and uncuttable. Replacement arrived 15 minutes after everyone already finished their main course.

I was disappointed in this location last night. 🙄 Our waiter felt the need to talk to my husband when introduction the menu items. I didn't know if I was at the table or not. This is the first time this has EVER happened to us. I frequent many upscale restaurants and the waiter/waitress look at us both and speaks to us both. I believe my kids thought I was being extra once I mentioned it to my husband, but as the night went on. They too said daddy can you tell him we need more bread because he is ONLY listening too you. 🤦‍♀️😤 We all know that if the kids sense it, then it must be true. Food was mediocre because seafood options were REAL short. I got the jumbo lump crab cakes and they were lump but no where near jumbo. Also, no sauce to dip the crab cakes into as well. Mash potatoes.....well they were not on point. I like all my food hot once it comes to the table. Disappointed to say the least with ruth and christopher!!! 😐 WON'T BE BACK ✌🏼
