My wife, children and grandchildren recently had dinner here and it was magnificent! The view, the food, wine etc. was just great. They had no problem with menu items that took care of the kids (whom were well behaved) and was such a treat for them. They offer complete dinners now that include appetizer, steak, and dessert. Very good deal!
We will absolutely return here. I have been to the Ponte Vedra location and was not as impressed.

Anniversary dinner. Arrived early to have a drink in the bar. Host copped an attitude and seated us immediately. Waiter rushed us. Both husband and I ordered rib eye Medium Pittsburgh. My steak was not medium, not rare, it was RAW. It was not edible. Waiter came to clear plates and asked what was wrong with my steak. I showed him my raw steak and reminded him I ordered Medium. He copped an attitude and said that I should have said something. (To whom, I'm wondering. He had disappeared). We won't be going to Ruth's again to spend $250 just to be treated like a red-headed step child.

We have been patrons of this restuarant by the beach many times and it has been mostly a very good experience and good food until last night. After the experience, I don't think we will be patrons of this establishment anymore.
For the price we do expect food that is properly prepared but it was not. My wife's onion soup had plastic melted in it, the stuff chicken entree she ordered was unbelievably overcooked and dry. When this was brought to the attention of the Manager, his attitude was svery nobby and pretentious. It seemed like it was a burden to them an they can do no wrong. To add injury to insult, my rib eye steak was not medium rare as I had ordered but almost cold and rare. When this was brought up, they basically said that is how it normally is. I've gone there many times and have never experienced such awful human behavior especially from a manager. I do not recommend the beach location in JAX in case the food is not prepared properly, there does not seem to be any recourse, and you will only deal with arrogant manager.

I have been to Morton's and Plaza III, and I am a member of the River Club at the top of the Modis building, and out of all of these fine downtown restaurants/steakhouses Ruth's Chris is by far the best. You CANNOT beat the location/setting either (well maybe River Club, but that's strictly exclusive). I am young and do not have much money, but I MAKE the time and money to go there and treat a nice girl to a good dinner. Do not order anything besides steak there, while everything is excellent, the steaks are mouthwatering good. They ""melt"" in your mouth (could they be simmered in butter?). Oscar style is the way to go, and like another commenter noted, only by the waiter's word of mouth. Appetizer? Try the seared tuna, while not as good as at River City Brewing Company, it is excellent (I always get seared or raw tuna, it's just that good). Side items? try the creamed spinach, it is the best I have had, and the shoestring is good, so are the potatoes au gratin, really everything. Go for any dessert as well. For those 21 year olds without a budget it IS Ruth's Chris. For those who just turned 21 or who try to appear 21, there is the cheapest bar in town even within stumbling distance of ruth's chris by the railroad tracks and the hospital. Get your beer and shots there, but reserve the bottles for Ruth's Chris. One of my favorite restaurants in town!

As always Jacksonville's finest and most distinguished restaurant leads the way! Sizzle and glitter as the lights of the St John's River make for a romantic evening, coupled with choice beef served sizzling hot by the best staff in Jacksonville. You will really feel you have arrived at the right restaurant with the right ambiance and style. Be careful when choosing your side items though they come in giant sizes enough to split between two people easily. All in all a really great dinner value. Try the porterhouse for two or a seafood entree!
As a family of four, we treated ourselves to a really classy evening at Ruth's Chris with high expectations. Out of four meals, 3 had to be returned because they were Rare when we had ordered the steaks at the medium well side of medium. Very disappointing when we had really splurged and they didn't seem to care.
My wife and I have ate there many time BUT it is not the BEST steak house in jax. For one thing the service is to slow, and I know that the high priced drinks are watered down . The last time I went there I asked for a clean fork and I thought the waiter was going to tell me to go to Hell. I complained to a manager or what ever he called himself and all he said was sometimes things like that happen. I will never eat there again even if they gave me a free meal. I can afford to eat there but I never will again.

ALthough Ruth's may seem pricey, it's worth going out half as much as we used to. The food, service and atmosphere are absolutely wonderful!! Sharing side dishes is fun. By the way, my husband and I have visited over 30 different locations and have not had a bad experience yet in the past 7 .5 years.

My husband and I visited Ruth Chris on our first anniversary (because it IZ one of those great places where you can dress up or down). Anyhoo, we shared entrees (the portions were huge) and the steak was UNBELIEVABLE! This place comes highly recommended!

I had a wonderful time at this restaurant. It was quiet, romantic and there was wonderful service.
The view from a window table is amazing at night. the food was equally amazing. The steak was perfect, one of the best I have ever had. All of the sides were hot and tasty and the key lime pie was delicious!
It was the greatest first date I have ever been on..and it worked because we are geting married in 2 months!
