I like Ruth's Chris as they are good and so consistent. The ambiance, decor and location are steller. The service staff is great for a smaller city, well trained, quiet and polite.

Everything from the food service and drinks were superior! Great place for an intimate date or family outing. The steaks are phenomenal and definitely no watered down drinks. Enjoy!

The service was great and so was the food. You have a nice view of San Diego boardwalk and bay. Across from the ship terminal near the Star of India.

For a memorable dining experience, a person need look no further than Ruth's Chris Steak House. From the moment you enter the steak house, a person is treated as a welcome guest rather than just another customer.

The Happy Hour at Ruth's Chris has always been the best in San Diego. Not so any more. The setting, service and drinks were all good. But the menu was much more limited, omitting such old favorites as a steak salad and a BLT with...More
