Read below to learn more about the white wines available at Ruth’s Chris in Chattanooga – and why they’re ideal for enjoying on our beautiful outdoor patio.

Pinot Grigio

When searching for a crisp white wine to enjoy at our Chattanooga restaurant, you can’t go wrong with Pinot Grigio.

Pinot Grigio is a light-bodied white wine with fruity undertones, a crisp, dry wine that pairs well with seafood, fresh salads and pasta. Try a Pinot Grigio from our wine list and one of these delectable dishes:

  • Seared Ahi Tuna to start
  • Steak House Salad
  • Chilean Sea Bass

Enjoy from our patio as you take in the beautiful Chattanooga summer evenings.

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc means “wild white,” and this wine is driven more by minerality than fruit flavors, although you will get notes of lime, green apple, passion fruit and white peach. Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with dishes featuring strong green herbs, like rosemary or mint, as well as white meats like chicken. Green vegetables help emphasis the acidity of the wine as well!

Try a glass of Sauvignon Blanc on our Chattanooga patio with dishes like our Ruth’s Chopped Salad, Stuffed Chicken Breast and a side of Grilled Asparagus. Savor each bite as you sip your wine and take in the views around you.


While most people think white wines aren’t an ideal pairing with steak, Chardonnay is here to prove otherwise. Chardonnay can be oaky or buttery, and these flavors will help bring out the richness of any of our signature sizzling cuts, including the New York Strip, Filet or Ribeye.

Imagine sharing a meal with your loved one, sipping a chilled glass of wine, then taking a bite of our sizzling steak, all while enjoying a beautiful Chattanooga sunset. It’s the perfect dinner out!
