Whether you’re looking for a Thanksgiving staple or a twist on a traditional holiday meal, Ruth’s Chris has the recipe for you. Create one of our signature dishes from scratch, or save some time and pick one to carry out. Either way, you’re getting the mouth-watering result of 50 years’ experience serving incredible food to guests throughout the southeast.



Give the traditional Sweet Potato Casserole a gourmet touch with our time-tested recipe. Made from a delicious mixture of mashed sweet potatoes, sugar, salt, vanilla, eggs, and butter, plus a decadent crust of brown sugar, flour, pecans, and butter, you’ll have everyone reaching for seconds in no time.

Perfect as a side dish, appetizer, or even a light meal, our Barbecued Shrimp and Crab Cakes are an exciting way to detour from the traditional turkey and stuffing meal. Serve these savory dishes in conjunction with your typical feast, or highlight them as their own course and create a meal no one will be able to forget.



Even after 50 years our Bread Pudding remains a staple at many Ruth’s Chris locations. This timeless dish is made with French bread, butter, and spices—it yields 12 fluffy and large portions. Bake them individually or family-style, just make sure they’re served with vanilla ice cream for the full effect!
