Ruth's Chris Steak House Restaurant Review: When you get a Ruth's Chris steak, the plate is heated to about 400 degrees, thus keeping your steak hot. As you cut into the meat, you can cook it a bit further by pressing bites of steak against the hot plate. Oysters (in season) and crayfish appetizers reflect the New Orleans roots of this operation. Expect fried oysters to be anointed by a Thai chili rémoulade that could be a bit much for tender palates. There’s filet mignon and bone-in rib-eye; we think the rib-eye and the New York strip are the best value steaks. Salmon and seared ahi are available, as is a combination of tournedos with jumbo Gulf shrimp. Side dishes easily serve at least two people---we recommend any of the potato dishes and the creamed spinach. Chocolate mousse cheesecake is the signature dessert. An extensive wine list with some 250 choices has good values and interesting selections, with 24 by the glass. Inexplicably, South Africa is woefully underrepresented. At this location, happy hour on Fridays from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. features live music and drink specials. Other locations.
