How Ruth’s Chris Steak House Became a Palmetto Priority Certified Restaurant

While Ruth’s Chris Steak House has always upheld the highest health and safety standards in its restaurants, our team is going the extra mile for customers and staff in the wake of the novel coronavirus. Becoming a Palmetto Priority Certified restaurant is no easy process—but it’s the best way to ensure our patrons can rest easy and enjoy a world-class meal knowing we’ve taken extra precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Ruth’s Chris Steak House Completed a Checklist from the South Carolina DHEC

The first step to becoming a Palmetto Priority Certified restaurant is completing a checklist of operational assurances administered by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC). Requirements on this list include health safety checks for every employee before each shift, regularly disinfecting common areas, providing hand sanitizing stations for employees and customers upon entry, and much more.

The staff at each South Carolina restaurant was also required to attend an online course to learn the latest health and safety standards, and each of our fine dining restaurants underwent a food safety inspection conducted by the DHEC. This thorough vetting process ensures Ruth’s Chris Steak House is one of the safest places to eat in South Carolina.
