At Ruth’s Chris, we have drinks for every type of guest. Our wide selection of sommelier-selected red and white wines and domestic and craft beers are sure to make even hard-to-please guests happy.

- Hangar One Makrut Lime Vodka, Cointreau, Tres Agaves Nectar and lime, your guests will love the exotic flavors.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention our house favorite appetizers. You can’t go wrong with any shared appetizers, except of course if you forget to order enough! Our customers come back time and time again for these crowd favorites:
- Sizzling Crab Cakes – Served with sizzling lemon butter, our Sizzling Crab Cakes are always a winner. We recommend ordering multiple dishes to share with your table.

The Main Dish – Entrees to Please Your Entire Table
While we always recommend one of our signature steaks, we have a little something for everyone at Ruth’s Chris. Our steaks are made with the finest custom-aged Midwestern beef, broiled exactly at 1,800 degrees, cooked to your exact liking, and served on a sizzling plate so that it stays hot throughout your entire meal.
If steak is your entrée of choice, let us recommend our New York Strip or Ribeye for a full-flavor experience. Or, if you love the tenderest cut, we recommend our signature Filet, 11 ounces of pure heaven on a plate!
For your guests that prefer something other than steak, we have other incredible options on our Dinner Menu as well: Lamb Chops topped with fresh mint, seafood entrees like our garlic-crusted sea bass, and even a vegetarian plate that will win any guest over.
