It’s a December to Remember: Start a New Holiday Tradition at Ruth’s Chris Steak House

Enjoy the holiday season with great food alongside friends and family at Ruth’s Chris Steak House. We will be open throughout December – including Christmas Eve and Christmas Day – to bring the sizzle to your celebration!

‘Tis the Season for Steaks

The holidays are a joyous time, but can also be very stressful. Bring your loved ones to Ruth’s Chris this Christmas and leave the cooking, cleaning, and holiday hosting to us. Our broad selection of steaks is sure to satisfy everyone’s Christmas cravings. From our tender 11-ounce Filet to our robust 40-oz. Tomahawk Ribeye, there’s a sizzling steak for every taste.

  • Want to add flavorful flare to your steak? Try our blue cheese or horseradish crusts.
  • Pair your steak with some of our popular side dishes, like potatoes – get them baked, au gratin or mashed – lobster mac and cheese or our famous creamed spinach.
  • In the mood for surf ‘n turf? Add steamed lobster tail, shrimp or lump crabmeat to any steak option on our menu.

Naughty or nice, no matter the list—every bite is a gift from Ruth’s Chris.

Did You Ask Santa for Seafood This Christmas?

There is so much food to enjoy during the holiday, so try some lighter fare with our fresh seafood options.

  • You won’t find any lumps of coal here — just Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes served with lemon butter.
  • In the mood for something more tropical to get you through the winter? Try our Chilean Sea Bass, served over sweet potato and pineapple hash and topped with citrus coconut butter.
  • Indulge in the ultimate celebration of this joyous season and start off with our acclaimed Chilled Seafood Tower—a maritime monument complete with Maine lobster, king crab legs and knuckles, colossal lump crab meat and jumbo shrimp.

Try Our Delectable Soups, Salads, Appetizers, Sides and Desserts

The steak and seafood may be the star of the show here at Ruth’s Chris, but there is plenty of room at the table for savory soups, appetizers, lighter salads and sweet treats, too. Kick off your Christmas meal with our Veal Osso Bucco Ravioli or a classic Caesar Salad. And be sure to leave room for one of our signature desserts, like White Chocolate Bread Pudding. No matter your preference, we’ve got a great selection of starters, salads and sweet treats to round out your Christmas feast!
