For our 37th Anniversary, we went to Ruthie D's expecting a fine dining experience.
It was Wednesday night, we were seated immediately and the waitress took our drink orders. My wife's margarita was bad, it tasted like a bottle mix, she sent it back.
After finishing our appetizers, we waited for over 45 min. Before our dinner arrived.
Atomsphere/decor is great, food is average, but service was slow.
We have eaten there 3 times in the past....

Nice atmosphere here and good food. Well-priced upscale restaurant with lovely lake views. The chocolate lava cake dessert was yummy.

A group of 13 family members consisting of grandparents, parents and kids dined here, and we had mixed responses to food, but overall, we had a terrific time. The kids loved their kids' meals - mac and cheese, burgers, fettucini and lots and lots of crackers and bread. (Our kids love crackers and bread, especially when served with fresh, soft butter.) Adults enjoyed the appetizers of onion strings and ahi tuna. Tuna was so good that we had to order a third serving; it was prepared beautifully and served with 2 sauce options (traditional soy and wasabi, but I forgot the other one). Well-received entrees included a sirloin steak and grilled white fish, but the blacked fish was a little salty, the catfish was overly breaded, and the creamy pesto was a tad bland with not-quite-right chicken. An extra bottle of Meiomi pinot noir cheered everyone up. Entrees were a bit slow to arrive, the waitress was very friendly and especially kind to the kids. As everyone has said, views are lovely even if not all of the food was 100% impressive.

we had not been there since 2013 and wanted to go back to see if it was how we remember it. we had cocktails in the bar which we enjoyed and then had dinner. my wife and I both had the fried shrimp which were very big and great. we were not disappointed and will be back again when at the lake.
