Starting Small: Steakhouse Appetizers, Salads and Soups

We believe in great beginnings at Ruth’s Chris. Dive right in to the American steakhouse tradition by starting your meal with one of our seafood appetizers. Some of our favorites are the Barbecued Shrimp, Sizzling Blue Crab Cakes, and the Chilled Seafood Tower.

Want to warm up to something indulgent? Go for the Lobster Bisque, a perennial favorite with Ruth’s Chris devotees. We also recommend the Ruth’s Chop Salad as a starter, featuring our fresh Blue Cheese and Remoulade dressings, made in-house with our exclusive recipes.

The Main Event: Sizzling Steaks at Ruth’s Chris

At Ruth’s Chris, we follow the traditional à la carte steakhouse model. This means that our guests order their individual steak, which is complemented with side dishes of vegetables, potatoes, and seafood.

Some of our favorite signature steaks are the New York Strip and the Filet. The 16-ounce New York Strip is a steak-lover’s favorite, featuring USDA Prime beef with a full-bodied texture. The 12-ounce Filet is the most tender, melt-in-your-mouth signature chop, made with only the finest corn-fed Midwestern beef.

Ordering Steakhouse Seafood, Entrée Complements, and Vegetables

Make your dining experience at Ruth’s Chris completely your own with a unique combination of entrée complements, side dishes, and vegetables. One of our favorite entrée complements is the Oscar, which means that we’ll add a heaping portion of lump crab meat, asparagus, and béarnaise sauce to your entrée.

Add a savory side dish to your entrée with our famous Potatoes au Gratin or Lobster Mac & Cheese. We also suggest the Creamed Spinach or the French Fried Onion Rings, which are made from Ruth’s original recipe.

Want to go the seafood route? We have the perfect dish for you. Our Shrimp & Grits are cooked Ruth’s Chris style in a white wine reduction, all served atop jalapeno-cheese grit cakes and crumbled bacon.
