Now Open: We look forward to serving you soon.

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.

Surprisingly delightful experience. 8 years ago, our first date was at a Ruth Chris in Fairfax VA. 7 years later we returned to the location at Crown Heights and recalled our magic… thanks Ruth Chris!!

Service was excellent!! So was the food. Not impressed with the drink. Had raspberry cosmo. Not much flavor and seemed very light on the alcohol. This is why I usually don’t order mixed drinks. But it sounded good and I wanted a switch from wine. I still highly recommend Ruth’s Chris. But next time it will be wine or water.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
