Ruth's Chris Steak House Restaurant Review: No need to ask where the beef is; it's coming your way in great, hulking portions, served sizzling hot on metal platters. Filets, rib-eyes, a gargantuan porterhouse for two, a classic T-bone, all usually topped with a big gob of butter --- these are your reasons for reserving a table in this vaguely Victorian setting. You'll find echoes of the chain's Louisiana roots in offerings like barbecued New Orleans shrimp; seafood gumbo; and shrimp rémoulade. But remember why you're here --- beef --- and you won't go wrong. For a lighter bite that’s also easy on the wallet, the “Sizzle, Swizzle, & Swirl” menu, served in the bar at happy hour, offers steak sandwiches, prime burgers, spicy lobster and more. This particular location has a first-rate wine cellar, some 10,000 bottles strong, intensely focused on California reds. Want to be even closer to the Harbor? Check out the Ruth’s Chris at 711 Eastern Ave. on Pier 5, 410-230-0033.
