Description: In 1965, Ruth Fertel mortgaged her home to buy a little steak house in New Orleans named Chris Steak House. After investing her life savings, she proudly added her name to the original. That's how the uniquely name Ruth's Chris Steak House was born. Ruth established this unique restaurant with no restaurant experience, but she vowed to treat every customer like a guest in her own home. And she clearly knew what steak lovers wanted - the very best beef. Today, as always, Ruth's Chris serves only the finest corn-fed Midwestern beef available, broiled in 1800-degree ovens designed by Ruth herself. The steaks are served sizzling on 500-degree plates so every bite is hot and delicious. And while steak is king, the menu also includes expertly executed seafood, lamb, pork, and poultry dishes, as well as classic appetizers, fresh salads, side dishes, and homemade desserts. The award-winning wine list features more than 250 world-class international and domestic labels. Whatever the occasion, Ruth's Chris Steak House is the perfect spot to gather. Unparalleled cuisine, sumptuous surroundings and service that's accomplished yet never fussy - these are the elements of memorable special events.

We loved eating at Ruth's Chris because it's white table cloth service ... the entrees and side dishes are large enough to share ... the wine list is extensive and the service is really good without being snooty. On nights when the trade winds weren't blowing and it was really uncomfortably warm Ruth's Chris was an air conditioned, humidity free place to enjoy a first class meal. Located in the Shops of Wailea it makes for an enjoyable evening of shopping and dining a short walk or shuttle ride from the hotels of Wailea.

Great meal but VERY overpriced. Would not recommend because of high prices...like dining in Manhattan

What is the appeal of this place? Overcooked, overpriced steaks and sides. Service ok. Waited too long to clear plates between courses. Put our group of 7 at a small round table. No room to eat or put the multiple wines glasses we were using. Small plates for mains so where do you put your sides? I had to put asparagus on top of my meat! Both of our steaks were over cooked when we got them and then continued to cook as they serve on smoking hot plates. Again, don't get it....horrible waste of money and time. Glad we weren't paying for it or this review would be even more scathing!

The service was very good and prompt, we went early and several people in our group ordered off the fixed price menu, which is a pretty good deal. I opted for the steak and crab-stuffed lobster tail. It was excellent! It's an expensive night out, but you should expect that at this restaurant!
