    Wifey and I go to Ruth's Chris for dinner once a year, on New Year's Eve.

    The food is delicious, the service impeccable, and none of those pesky 47%-ers whining about how "life isn't fair".

    I find meals much more enjoyable when I'm not surrounded by the hoi polloi.

    I actually don't care for Ruth's Chris's steaks. Del Frisco, on the other hand...

    Been there twice ever. 14 years apart. Shared a porterhouse with my wife both times. They tied for the best steaks ever in my life. Had many other high dollar steaks and these won hands down.

    Sounds like a great evening, happy new year. I do not thin I have ever had anything less than wonderful service or food at Ruth's Chris or at Capital Grill. I wish I could go more often.

    But Ruth's Chris has like 13 times more restaurant locations so they are a bit easier to find.

    This could turn into a steakhouse pissing thread.

    Ruth's is a safe bet wherever you are. Are there better? Sure. But not by much.

    OP - glad you had a great time. Ruth's story is a great one.

    Did you remember to clip the "Buy One - Get One Half-Price" coupon first?

    Big veggies from my experience at RC. if you go out with a date, you only need to buy 1 potatoe or plate of broccoli.

    Beats out a lot of the bigger steakhouse like Magnus, but its not the best steakhouse by a long shot.

    You mean the one where I'm a 1%-er so I only left her 1% ?

    Ruth's Chris is great!! For anyone who has never been, just dont do what I did on my first trip-- i tried to move my plate a few inches after the waiter sat it down in front of me. That plate must have been 400 degrees! :wow: I won't make that mistake again. But I loved the food well enough I have been back several times and hope to go again this year. :eat:

    Farmington Steak House. Farmington, Minnesota. This is the Place for good Steak. Last time I was there the rib-eye special was less than $9.00.

    The one in Cary, NC usually participates in Triangle Restaurant Night a couple of times a year. You can eat from a fixed menu for $25 or $30. Very good and about the only time we can afford to go.

    Any thread on GT can! .....note it only took til the 2nd post for a buzz-killingworth to show up


    EC does toss out a great plate of food and yes, it is good to eat without being among the unwashed masses.

    RC is good, been there a few times. I was at Capitol Grille not long ago and that was slightly better but right on par.
