Ruth's Chris Steak House History

Ruth's Chris US Steakhouse logo

Ruth Fertel, purchased a restaurant called Chris Steak House in May of 1965 in New Orleans. A few years later a kitchen fire decimated the Chris Steak House restaurant forcing Ruth to relocate.  Unable to use the Chris Steak House name, Ruth with a mischievous smile added her own name to the sign, making it “Ruth’s Chris Steak House.”

US Prime Steak Cuts

Beef is graded into 3 categories including Select, Choice, and Prime with the latter being the highest quality. When grading meat, the meat industry looks at 2 main things: quality grades for tenderness, juiciness and flavor; and yield grades for the amount of usable lean meat on the carcass.


Ruth’s Chris Steak House Newport Jersey City Review

As with all Ruth's Chris Steak Houses, the dining experience is without exception top notch. 

For those that are Ruth's Chris Steak House regulars, one of the main attractions to Ruth's Chris beyond great steak, is their expert waiter staff who not only know steaks but seafood and a vast array of wines.  Another attraction for many is the clean interiors and business casual dress attire.  You are not going to see flipflops, t-shirts, and shorts or people wearing hats in a Ruth's Chris.  This creates a more upscale atmosphere and creates a fantastic dining experience.

For those who appreciate the finer tastes in life and have a wine palate that needs quenching, Ruth's has a huge selection of wines, including at least 20 by the glass and at least 400 well-chosen varieties by the bottle.  The wine list leans heavily towards California wineries.

Ruth’s Chris’ menu changes with the seasons and can often feature such items as swordfish & barbecued shrimp, a signature lobster bisque and fresh blue point oysters from Long Island. 

Ruth's Chris offers $10 valet parking, which is quite convenient on weeknights and during the weekends when parking is usually at a premium.

When dining out at Ruth's Chris expect to pay a hefty sum.  An average meal for two (cocktail, salad, steak dinner, and wine) will run in excess of $150.

For those who are interested in private dining or off-site catering, Ruth's Chris offers those as well.  They have both private dining rooms and at your location events with a dedicated sales manager and a team of executive chefs, certified bartenders and trained servers.

Inside Scoop: When you first arrive at Ruth's Chris you will be greeted and often asked why you have come.  If you say you are celebrating something special, a complimentary cake with candles might just end up at your table at the end of the meal.
