Ruth's Chris Steak House Restaurant Review

: Perhaps it’s the suburban clientele that makes it so, but Ruth’s Chris in Pikesville has a calmer air than its downtown sibling. The dark wood paneling, crisp linens, stained glass and gleaming brass are enveloped in the warmth. Fat cats and glad-handing salesmen are less the norm than quieter foursomes of business people and extended families out for a meal. Add to this professional service and it’s just the right atmosphere for digging into one of the chain’s signature cuts of U.S. Prime Midwestern beef, whether a beauteous New York strip, a handsome hunk of prime rib done just the way you like it, or the over-the-top porterhouse for two. Jumbo lump crab cakes or New Orleans-style barbecued shrimp certainly wouldn’t hurt to start. But remember: Portions are huge, so plan on sharing those à la carte mashed potatoes or mammoth steamed asparagus drizzled with hollandaise. Parents note: There’s a children’s menu, starring such items as a petite filet and Kobe beef sliders, for budding foodies.

Great meal ruined by annoying steakhouse upsell of wine!
by stevensnells on Fri Apr 22, 2011 12:23 pm
 
Real quick - went to RC (21208) for meal. Bill was $500. We decide to order a final bottle of vino. Waiter comes back, says we are sorry, we are out of that - but we can recommend this. This is 100% of that. I balked. Said, tell you what -- show of good faith, perhaps you are out of that -- give me a $70 bottle for $60 (not $120 like he was pushing) and we're good. Waiter comes back. sorry we can't do! $10 !!! on a 100% markup. I cancel round and grab check to go. Then, on the way out, the Maitre'd comes over, apologizes and offers a round of wine!! What!!!!. Waits for us to walk out and then offers!! 3rd time this happened in steakhouse. Isn't the $500 enough???
