Ate at Ruth's Chris with my family at the riverside crown plaza location in Jacksonville last night, April 4th at 6:30 pm. Excellent food and excellent service by the wait staff especially Richard and Julian and the other two of their wait staff. There were two female receptionists at the entrance. The taller one was very rude. She didn't greet us with a smile. When we were leaving she just looked at us and didn't say hi or thank us for visiting.
"Incredible" – My wife, children and grandchildren recently had dinner here and it was magnificent! The view, the food, wine etc. was just great. They had no problem with menu items that took care of the kids (whom were well behaved) and was such a treat for them. They offer complete dinners now that include appetizer, steak, and dessert. Very good deal!
We will absolutely return here. I have been to the Ponte Vedra location and was not as impressed.
best steak ever and service – the food is awesome the best server i ever had the name is Richard ask for him and sit back and enjoy its the best
The worst $250 ever spent – Anniversary dinner. Arrived early to have a drink in the bar. Host copped an attitude and seated us immediately. Waiter rushed us. Both husband and I ordered rib eye Medium Pittsburgh. My steak was not medium, not rare, it was RAW. It was not edible. Waiter came to clear plates and asked what was wrong with my steak. I showed him my raw steak and reminded him I ordered Medium. He copped an attitude and said that I should have said something. (To whom, I'm wondering. He had disappeared). We won't be going to Ruth's again to spend $250 just to be treated like a red-headed step child.
Sophisticated American chain serves up corn-fed USDA prime cuts and New Orleans-style appetizers and sides. – In Short
This offshoot of a popular New Orleans hangout for politicians features decor of dark woods and comfortable booths, with a separate bar scene. Choice cuts of custom-aged beef arrive in sizzling butter on 500-degree plates. The menu also offers chicken, pork and seafood entrees along with Creole appetizers like shrimp remoulade. Family-style sides include gargantuan onion rings, creamed spinach and various styles of potatoes. Traditional homemade desserts like cheesecake and bread pudding conclude the meal.
Snoby Attitude and Horrible Food – We have been patrons of this restuarant by the beach many times and it has been mostly a very good experience and good food until last night. After the experience, I don't think we will be patrons of this establishment anymore.
For the price we do expect food that is properly prepared but it was not. My wife's onion soup had plastic melted in it, the stuff chicken entree she ordered was unbelievably overcooked and dry. When this was brought to the attention of the Manager, his attitude was svery nobby and pretentious. It seemed like it was a burden to them an they can do no wrong. To add injury to insult, my rib eye steak was not medium rare as I had ordered but almost cold and rare. When this was brought up, they basically said that is how it normally is. I've gone there many times and have never experienced such awful human behavior especially from a manager. I do not recommend the beach location in JAX in case the food is not prepared properly, there does not seem to be any recourse, and you will only deal with arrogant manager.
Beats other high end steakhouses! – I have been to Morton's and Plaza III, and I am a member of the River Club at the top of the Modis building, and out of all of these fine downtown restaurants/steakhouses Ruth's Chris is by far the best. You CANNOT beat the location/setting either (well maybe River Club, but that's strictly exclusive). I am young and do not have much money, but I MAKE the time and money to go there and treat a nice girl to a good dinner. Do not order anything besides steak there, while everything is excellent, the steaks are mouthwatering good. They "melt" in your mouth (could they be simmered in butter?). Oscar style is the way to go, and like another commenter noted, only by the waiter's word of mouth. Appetizer? Try the seared tuna, while not as good as at River City Brewing Company, it is excellent (I always get seared or raw tuna, it's just that good). Side items? try the creamed spinach, it is the best I have had, and the shoestring is good, so are the potatoes au gratin, really everything. Go for any dessert as well. For those 21 year olds without a budget it IS Ruth's Chris. For those who just turned 21 or who try to appear 21, there is the cheapest bar in town even within stumbling distance of ruth's chris by the railroad tracks and the hospital. Get your beer and shots there, but reserve the bottles for Ruth's Chris. One of my favorite restaurants in town!
Great Food – I took my husband there on his birthday. The food was excellent well worth what you pay. The service could have been better, we went on a Weds night at 7pm. The parking was terrible if you dont get valet. But iverall it was really nice.
Awesome View and Sizzle! – As always Jacksonville's finest and most distinguished restaurant leads the way! Sizzle and glitter as the lights of the St John's River make for a romantic evening, coupled with choice beef served sizzling hot by the best staff in Jacksonville. You will really feel you have arrived at the right restaurant with the right ambiance and style. Be careful when choosing your side items though they come in giant sizes enough to split between two people easily. All in all a really great dinner value. Try the porterhouse for two or a seafood entree!
wrong – My wife and I have ate there many time BUT it is not the BEST steak house in jax. For one thing the service is to slow, and I know that the high priced drinks are watered down . The last time I went there I asked for a clean fork and I thought the waiter was going to tell me to go to Hell. I complained to a manager or what ever he called himself and all he said was sometimes things like that happen. I will never eat there again even if they gave me a free meal. I can afford to eat there but I never will again.
