Ruths Chris Steak House
8211 Marina Pkwy, Grande Dunes Blvd, Myrtle Beach, SC 29572, United States

Review №1

My wife and I celebrated our second anniversary here. This is by far the best steakhouse ever. Prices are definitely more than most others but the steak is like none other. It's hard to find a well done steak that's not tough. Not only was this steak extremely tender but it was also packed with so much flavor. The service was amazing. Our waitress was pleasant and tentative.

Review №2

My husband and I went here for a date night and we have nothing but great things to say about this restaurant! Our waitress was Wendy and she was very sweet and attentive! I will say the thing that impressed me the most is that she did not pressure my husband and I about buying alcohol drinks. My husband is a recovering alcoholic and this was such a pleasant experience! I told my husband this is the first restaurant that's ever done that. I just want to thank our waitress and the restaurant for not doing that! Also the food was amazing! I know it's a steak place and my husband had a steak and said it was amazing but I had the shrimp and grits and even though they are not the traditional type of shrimp and grits they were probably the best I've ever had!

We so enjoyed celebrating our 30th Anniversary here. The food was delish, the service A1, thr ambiance delightful and the evening overall GRAND. Tyler was an excellent server and Thomas was quietly wonderful (he didn't talk at all). But great place will return!

Review №4

Our server was great! My steak was way more greasy than I've ever had at any Ruth Chris location though. I was not particularly happy about that considering they cost $60. The bread was super tough, the sweet potato casserole wasn't as great as it normally is, and the Apple pie dessert we had wasn't hot or all that good either. Ruth Chris is one of my favorite restaurants though so I'll just visit another location.

Review №5

Be immersed in a total food and drink experience... The best steaks I've ever had with suggested wines to compliment, If you like fresh seafood... I recommend their Seafood Tower...WOW! You can't go wrong with this gourmet food feast! Everything was wonderful, always impeccable service and server/staff recommendations! Save room for Chef's desserts and cappuccino!

Review №6

Service was great and very well organized. Everything was explained and the waiter definitely went above and beyond dont remember his name. Food on the other hand is definitely not the Ruth's Chris experience that I had the last time I was there. My wife's steak was over cooked and mine was under cooked. I'm sure if we said something it would have been fixed but we kept quite about it... It was still an enjoyable quite evening together...

Review №7

The stuffed chicken breast was amazing! The service was superb. Restaurant was also very clean and taking appropriate precautions for covid which is a huge plus. My server was great and on top of things despite being busy, I don't remember her name but we sat in the bar area Friday night. Thank you for a delicious anniversary dinner.

Review №8

For the price point and location, this Ruth Chris did not meet my expectations. Many restaurants on the same price point in this location (20 mile radius) has a far greater experience. In 2020 many seek an experience in this location especially. Decor was terrible as well. Service was on point, Jaz was amazing at attending to every detail. Location is great, but not utilized to improve the experience.

Review №9

My first and last trip to a Ruth Chris. I expected so much more. I don't have a problem paying for a nice meal, however, the prices were astronomical for the food that we received. My lobster Mac and cheese sauce was extremely runny and the steak, although cooked correctly, lacked seasoning. Very disappointed with our food and service.

Review №10

Our waiter Joe was the absolute best!! He made our dining experience fabulous. The pork chop, Chilean sea bass, lobster mac n cheese. Everything was great!! Our party of 8 enjoyed ourselves. Thanks Joe.

Review №11

This was our very first Ruth Chris experience. The food was phenomenal and the drinks were excellent. Saul was our waiter and he made us feel so welcome and special. We made a special trip from 2 1/2 hrs away. We will definitely be back again. Thank you!

Review №12

Ruth Chris has great food. I have ordered take out a few times over the last few months. I know things are hectic with the pandemic and all, but for the price you pay for any meal you expect your order to be right considering you left a nice tip for take out. The service could be alot better. I'm not sure who I spoke to on the phone, but this women defiantly needs to brush up on her managerial skills.Hope to hear from Mr. Hills.

Review №13

Service was awesome, food was amazing, and the outdoor seating had an incredible view! Couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. Can't wait for the next time we dine there.

Review №14

Food was extraordinarily good, service was second to none. I don't think I've eaten anything there I did not enjoy completely. Nice atmosphere and a good dessert to follow up with.

Review №15

This is always a great franchise restaurant. The manager of these in SC is outstanding and always accommodating on special request including time and seat location. Good view on the water at this one.

Review №16

The atmosphere was only out done but the steak and service!! Worth every penny and exactly what we expected and why we make it a "must visit" every year! You will NOT be disappointed!

Review №17

Food and service were absolutely amazing. Price point on the high side. Wine, appetizer, two entrees, and two sides each about $240. Happy hour very affordable and just as delicious.

Review №18

Food was adequate, not up to our previous dining experiences. Not special, but prices have increased considerably. Honestly, two steak dinners, calamari appetizer, no drinks (Water) or desserts should not cost $190 Before tip.

Review №19

We made reservations for outdoor seating and unfortunately it rained and they had to move us to bar seating. I should have known then to cancel and go somewhere else. We walked in and the hostess just says sit anywhere in the bar area not the service you would normally receive at Ruth Chris. The bar area has tvs were instead of enjoying our time together we had to listen to servers talk about their fantasy football teams. It was definitely not the ambience of a nice restaurant. I ordered a $58 ribeye steak medium and it came out well done and potatoes au gratin were greasy not up to par of what I have got before at other Ruth Chris. They did bring us out a happy anniversary dessert which was nice. Our server was good and friendly

Review №20

I came here for my birthday dinner on June 14, 2020 with my S/O... When we got there they asked us if we had reservations and we said “no”... the hostess then informed us if we didn't have a reservation then we wouldn't be able to dine there as they were full & they were full for the rest of the night. We left and I decided to go online to see if I could book a reservation.To my surprise Online it stated that they had a table available so I booked it. We went back and I gave them my name to confirm my reservation and they said they would be right with us to get us seated. While we were waiting a white couple came in and the hostess asked them if they had reservations and they said NO... Instead of telling them the same thing they told us previously (that without a reservation we couldn't dine and they were full for the rest of the night) they politely told them to wait just a min and they would get them a seat!! Me and my friend are a BLACK couple so I felt like they were discriminating against us. Because what was different in the 15 min time frame from when I first came in and was turned around vs the white couple that came in after. The hostess NEVER informed us that we could reserve online she just flat out told us NO they were full for the night!! I hate to pull the race card but I really feel some type of way. What was so different between us and them?? I honestly feel like we were discriminated against. Out waitress was very nice... I still have my receipt if this store needs proof that I dined there!!

Review №21

Didn't have the one thing we went there for. Didn't go over any changes in the menu until we started to order. Would have thought a very expensive place would be top notch. It was our 20 year anniversary and they treated us like kids. We will travel to DC to enjoy Ruth's Chris again.

Review №22

Everything was personable, friendly and delicious. Can't wait to return!

Review №23

Food for this price should be very good to exceptional. It wasn't it was ok. Overpriced food and appetizers the service was good

Review №24

My wife and I had a New York strip and Filet mignon. Both of course were seasoned very well. We both would recommend the filet over the strip just because it actually melts in your mouth. Its that PERFECT. We got crab mac and cheese and mashed potatoes, both were good. Ended with chocolate moose, nice as well. Without any alcohol drinks, the cost was right at $200.My one negative is they charge for soda refills and it was never mentioned. I know it just a small cost, but we both felt slighted afterwards because of it.

Review №25

Service was good, food was just ok. 2 of us had overcooked steaks. 1 sent back and they replaced, but not even an apology. For a $400 check you'd think they could at least apologize.

Review №26

Great food , was so fresh and meat so tender ! You don't need to add anything to there food once it comes out , Staff was so welcoming and friendly , that Mac & cheese was the best !!!

Review №27

Great place to eat!! Food was a terrific and lovely environment. I can't say enough good stuff about it. The atmosphere was very welcoming, and their services were excellent. I would recommend it to families.

Review №28

Service was decent but one of the steaks was tough, when we told the waitress she immediately sent the manager over. After explaining to him that most of steak was inedible, he just shrugged his shoulders and said "sometimes the cows don't always cooperate with us" and walked away.... What kind of an answer is that? We paid almost double the price of surrounding steak houses so we could enjoy what we thought would be a first class meal and experience (the kind you normally receive from Ruth's Chris), instead we received subpar food and a surly manager who needs empathy training. Needless to say our group will not be returning to this establishment.

Review №29

Stopped for dessert and it was awesome.. A lot of choices and even some lower calorie options; the fruit and cream the bomb. Great view as well.

Review №30

Prefect dinner start to finish, excellent service. Had the Tomahawk Ribeye and caesar salad, both were awesome. Hard to beat Ruths Chris style of steak!

Review №31

Best food on the beach. Ruth Chris never disappoints. Great service. Bartender, Chris was excellent. Will be back.

Review №32

Loved it. Plexiglass dividers between all the booths. Clean, safe, delicious

Review №33

Extraordinary, service attitude, environment and food. 70th birthday dinner loved it.

Review №34

Tre' was a wonderful server! The food was excellent. My wife recommends the sea bass and the raspberry cosmopolitan. Finish it off with raspberry sorbet and you have a great meal!

Review №35

Always great. Consistent food and service like all the other Ruth's chris steakhouses and being on the waterway gives some great views.

Review №36

The service and food were as expected GREAT however I had takem advantage of an offer to purchase $250 o my charge card and get $50 bpnus. That's where we came across an issue.There was a problem with the two offers the 250 was finally accepted but not the 50 bonus. Will f/u with corporate.

Review №37

Portabello Steak for 2 was phenomenal. Lobster mac was awesome. Drinks made well service was fast and friendly.

Review №38

Wonderful food and great atmosphere. They did a great job with all of the challenges with covid 19 guidelines. Felipe was the best!!

Review №39

Perfect from start to finish. They had us seated within mins of our reservation and the perfection just kept coming. Our server Wendy was on point and the food couldn't have been better!! Perfectly cooked and everything was out at the same time and sizzling hot!! Even during the current pandemic they knocked it out of the park. We will certainly be back!!!!

Review №40

They had more items on their menu then other Ruth's Chris. The service was good and it was located is a good area

Review №41

Came here on a Monday night to have some steak and the first thing I noticed is that NO ONE was there. I sat at the bar and chatted up the bartender who told me since the recent Covid outbreak in the area no one is coming out. He said on a typical Monday in the summer I wouldn't have been able to get a seat at the bar at 6pm. However it didn't ruin my meal. Started with the seafiod tower and washed that down with the bone-in ribeye which was cooked to perfection. The restaurant has a nice back deck that overlooks the marina if youre looking for views. Will be back.

Review №42

Poor service overall and steak was over cooked. Ordered a medium ribeye and half was well and other half was medium well. For a steak at that price I'd expect better results. If this was our first visit we wouldn't have came back.

Review №43

Wonderful food and very fast service great for family's and not only . Also great for a romantic dinner

Review №44

Food was great, our server Tre was terrific. Drinks were pretty over priced but all in all worth it for special events

Review №45

Steaks were good but I've had much better. Definitely not worth the $200 ticket.

Review №46

Can still feel the steak melting in my mouth!!!

Review №47

The steaks were perfect and the service was superb. Great atmosphere and memorable experience.

Review №48

Elegant and very inviting. They are not your traditional restaurant and they clearly serve a higher class of people. STILL, their staff treats everyone with respect and are very accommodating. No free refills on sodas. I'm not cheap but this was a major turnoff. Still, that's not going to bring down my thoughts on this place (I mean what are you thinking... Free refills at Ruth's?). I ordered the porterhouse 40 oz steak for $90 between me and my wife and it was worth it. I would never pay that much for one without a gift card but it was worth the try. All around an awesome experience. I left extra full so I'm satisfied overall.

Review №49

So we went for our Valentines Dinner! To be honest it was amazing! We had a great waiter, Elvis, who was insanely knowledgeable about the choices and guided us to picking some wonderful food! I had the Pork Chop, and the FLAVOR was WOW! Girlfriend had the Sirloin, and again WOW! Yes this is not a place to go if you're on a budget, but it truly brings meaning to the phrase, “you get what you pay for”!!!!

Review №50

Plates are too small, food is great. Service is excellent!

Review №51

Servers were terrific and meal was scrumptious. Thanks

Review №52

Wonderful Service, and a great meal. Had the heirloom tomatoes and gumbo and both were excellent.

Review №53

It's a chain restaurant. Food is over priced. You paying for the name

Review №54

Filet was wonderful and the chef added Oscar sauce per my request to the filet. Also try the lobster macaroni.

Review №55

Upscale steakhouse. Very good food, very high prices. The steak I got was overcooked and that did seem to be a theme at my table. Not horrendously over done but I ordered medium rare and definitely got medium to medium well. The environment classy and comfortable.

Review №56

Great service at the bar and the dinner was very good too.

Review №57

It was six of us that visited this place on Valentine's Day. We chose Ruth Chris because we thought we could enjoy a great meal with our friends. Service was good but was not impressed with the food. All side items came to the table ice cold. The butter on the baked potatoes would just not melt. They were tiny (said because were split) and the mushrooms were black and cold. Asked the server to take away our sides— they brought back similar potatoes that were put on the microwave. Ruined the experience that we were hoping for.

Review №58

Very nice place. Valet parking. Our waiter David "Elvis" was very knowledgeable and helpful about the entire menu. He recommended a cocktail that just hit the spot so I had 2. Really good guy and pleasure to meet him. The tomahawk ribeye was amazing and the manager brought it out himself and cut it up for us. Definitely going back soon

Review №59

Everything was perfect. Our waitress Erin was very attentive and professional.

Review №60

Great just like the last 5 times

Review №61

No happy hour. We won't be back until happy hour resumes.

Review №62

The best ribeye ever

Review №63

Service was very good. Food not worth the high costs. Not saying it wasn't good. But I've had a better tasting and tender steak at an Outback Steakhouse for a fraction of the cost. I don't mind spending the green on a good meal either. Just being honest here.

Review №64

Fantastic service! We had a reservation so quickly seated. The food was delicious and well seasoned. Staff was friendly and very polite. Expensive but well worth every penny!

Review №65

Well I guess this is the end for me. Been eating at Ruth's Chris for 20 year's. Absolutely the worst food and service. They brought out my wife's food under cooked. Brought it back with a lobster tail on her plate with the steak. Nice gesture but she is allergic to the point it will kill her. I asked what was up with the service and food. The manager acted like he didn't care. Guess prime or another place will get my money from now on..

Review №66

Wonderful post-Valentines dinner with my lovely wife. Great atmosphere and excellent food. Our waiter, David, was very personable and professional. Will definitely be returning and recommending.

Review №67

Good food and good service. Tables roped off for social distancing.

Review №68

Awesome place , awesome customer service.

Review №69

We decided to have dinner here with my wife's father and girlfriend. Their first time here and they enjoyed it. Always great food and great service.

Review №70

Amazing food, excellent staff,,people were so polite.

Review №71

This was my husband's and I first time dining at Ruth's Chris and went there for our Wedding Anniversary. The food was absolutely amazing! The service and staff were excellent as well as the overall ambiance. We can't wait to go back again.

Review №72

Once again, as always a fantastic experience. Always a must when we visit.

Review №73

Great restaurant. Love the steaks and always great service. Mostly perfect every time. Even if something is amiss they go out of the way to make it right.

Review №74

Best steak of any chain I've ever had!

Review №75

Wonderful atmosphere. Food was ok.

Review №76

They do a fantastic job. The little touches for birthday's, and a properly cooked meal is outstanding. I will definitely return to this restaurant.

Review №77

Just had another excellent dinner on the patio tonight. Hands down my favorite place to dine in Myrtle Beach. The food is consistently amazing. The staff and customer service are second to none. And the patio overlooking the waterway and marina is one of the best at the beach. I would strongly recommend Ruth's Chris without any reservations.

Review №78

Myrtle beach restaurant was very disappointing Food was average. Drinks were terrible

Review №79

Loved the bass and also. Also love their blue cheese salad. dressing

Review №80

Great staff, very friendly, and patient. food is awesome. worth every penny.

Review №81

Words can't explain how delicious there food was!!!

Review №82

Beautiful location in Myrtle Beach. Great Happy Hour at the bar. Erin our server was delightful.

Review №83

Food was amazing! Filet, shrimp, lobster, ahi tuna, crab cakes all delicious. Very pricey but worth the splurge. Staff was very friendly and the location at the marina is beautiful.

Review №84

Amazing experience, food was exceptional and service was very good.

Review №85

My wife and I eat at Ruth's Chris often, and the Myrtle Beach one just lacks in general the overall appeal for us. Last time we went, my steak was vastly under cooked. They also sat us in a weird area of the restaurant, away from the amazing ambiance. Not sure why. Our server was good though, and helped salvage our experience.

Review №86

Staff was soooooo attentive! Food was DELICIOUS! Appearance was attractive. Would go again.

Review №87

Awesome wait staff and as always, great food.

Review №88

The food was superb, the bar was well stocked. Service was not as good as in the past, even though it wasn't busy. Had to het up to get a waiter. Still would go back.

Review №89

Split the bone in tomahawk ribeye, it was cooked perfectly. Started with the crab stuffed mushrooms, they were also amazing. Yes, they are expensive, but totally worth it.

Review №90

For us awesome. Service is great. Really enjoyed this place.

Review №91

Fantastic service. Food not so much. Way overpriced. $220 without tip for 2 steaks and 2 side vegtables - seriously?

Review №92

Great special menu for January and February. Also the happy hour specials are very reasonable in the pub area only.

Review №93

Best dining experience we've had in a long time! Staff is 10/10. Food was outstanding!

Review №94

Amazing dinner and staff and great recommendations from our server Joe!

Review №95

Celebrate my 60th Birthday the food and service was Great!

Review №96

Took part in their deal they had going and the food was still great and filling!

Review №97

A great happy hour, staff and bartenders are the best. They also have the best steak in Myrtle beach.

Review №98

Poor service. Said they were 1 hour behind in kitchen. No seating available unless we sat in patio or bar area which we did. Ordered drinks at bar, sat in patio area as told. Then waiter came after we asked host when will waiter be coming and he told us they are not serving anymore?? Why did they tell us to sit there if they weren't serving any more and were 1 hour behind? Waiter was rude and hostess useless. I eat at many different Ruth Chris locations and never had such a poor experience like Sunday. Terrible. Don't go to this location.

Review №99

We visit here each year in the summer on two occasions. Probably 12 times now. We have only had two waiters on those visits. The first is gone now but we were lucky enough to get Phil on last years first visit. He was amazing and we have asked for and had him on three visits now. I commented to his manager that he is the best waiter I have ever had. You will not regret asking for Phi!

Review №100

Be very careful if you choose to eat here. I went with a group. Some of us were sick as we were leaving and I have not yet recovered 3 days later. The food taste ok however I am convinced that we were poisoned. I could be wrong, however that was my experience. It was a seminar and some political comments were made with staff and cook's present.
