Our story began in 1965 when Ruth Fertel purchased "Chris Steak House" in New Orleans. Proudly adding her name to the original, Ruth"s Chris Steak House has since become renowned for providing and incredible Steak House experience.

Our Prime USDA steaks are cooked to perfection in an 1800° broiler and served sizzling on a plate heated to 500° to lock in the delicious flavour. Our steaks may have made us famous but our southern roots and warm hospitality are equally memorable.

With over 135 locations worldwide, our family of Steak Houses continues to offer extraordinary steaks, sides and desserts; prepared just as Ruth would have herself, with high quality, fresh ingredients, generous portions and that special homemade touch.

So as our story continues to unfold, we invite you to be part of it and share in an unforgettable meal at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Niagara Falls Ontario.

Very loud drunk people in the bar area. Steak was edible but not even close to the quality of other locations. Asparagus looked like it came from no frills. Fire alarm kept going off. Awful evening

We have dined at Ruth’s Chris at several other locations but were so disappointed with The Niagara Falls location. We were there to celebrate my birthday...we were taken clear to the back of the restaurant-down several hallways & seated right next to 3 other couples when there was really no one else in this huge place. About 15 minutes after our arrival the smoke & fire alarm started sounding with a recording to evacuate the building. Our waiter Tom (who was fantastic) reassured us that all was fine but it was a little hard to relax with the alarm & recording continuing to sound when we had no idea where we would even evacuate if there truly was a fire. This continued with lights flashing & the recording for approx 15-20 min...we finally got soup & a salad then proceeded to wait about 30 minutes for our entrees to arrive. My petite filet was supposed to be prepared medium-Oscar style & it came out plain. They took the steaks back & we waited another 35-40 minutes for them to bring back our steaks...by then we were full from our soup-salad-bread & drinks & could barely eat our dinners...the whole evening was such a disappointment. The bill came & was OUTRAGEOUS with all the added taxes & additional fees...the only thing that saved our night was the fact that we had a wonderful-apologetic waiter named Tom that went out of his way to make up for the fiasco that played out. Our bill ended up being over $400 of which $65 of that was taxes...we were wishing we had eaten at The Outback Steakhouse which was right across the road...definitely 2 thumbs down for this location!!!

Every bite of the meat was delightful!
The waiter was funny and very cute.

Steak was over-cooked but they replaced it with a new steak. compensated by reducing the price by half and providing a dessert free off charge. Appreciated their efforts to make things right. Waiter was apologetic and these things happen.

My wife and I enjoyed a romantic dinner. The staff were courteous and professional. The food was fresh, hot, and delicious. We ordered the veal ravioli osso bucco, broiled sea bass, ribeye steak, mushrooms, and Brussels sprouts with bacon. It's in a convenient location. Highly recommend if you're on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.

The ambiance here was good, but I was surprising not pleased with the food here. Not sure if it was just this location but after the reviews I have read and received from others I was expecting alot more in the food category especially for the prices. Of the 3 restaurants we visited, this one ranked last on the list and it was the most expensive. We did not order steaks or anything like that ( we don't really eat steaks and such) but we had salad, lobster mac and cheese, bbq shrimp and asparagus. The lobster mac was horrible, it was dry and the lobster was not baked in but just put on top of the "baked" mac and cheese and the lobster was dry and rubbery. I had one cocktail that was ok. It was not worth the $220 CAD paid sorry.

The Good: The food was well cooked to order, and tasted great.
Not So Good: $ 95.00 for a bottle of Domestic Wine was over the top.
Serving plates were too small to accommodate the extra vegetables and potato sides.
Three extra servers to deliver the entries, over and above the actual wait person and her assistant, was over kill in service.
The Bad: Although I knew going in it was going to be expensive, $ 130.00 extra, after a $ 200.00 coupon was a bit much for a diner for two, consisting of two entries and a bottle of Domestic wine.

This restaurant is Ridiculously overpriced, the service was poor, and the staff were poorly trained. There was a men's room attendant, which is absolutely ridiculous and extremely outdated. I really don't understand why anyone would patronize this restaurant unless they are very, very wealthy or a pretentious snob. I can afford to eat there, but I still find the prices totally outrageous.

I will never go to a Ruth's Chris restaurant again.

The food and wine were excellent. Ruth’s Chopped Salad is recommended. Ok, that is out of the way. Our table was not ready on time, then it was not comfortable with table legs in the way from the booth. After some time we were moved. We were presented with a different wine than we ordered. Finally we got the right wine. My steak arrived, but it was not the one I ordered. The restaurant has a funky layout. Very 70’s decor. There are not a lot of fine dining options in Niagara. We will try Morton’s tomorrow and let you know.

Disappointing. This is not the Ruth’s Chris that we have come to expect. The prices were the same as always but the food quality, ambiance, and service were lackluster. There are other places to go for less money with better food. We will go back to a Ruth’s Chris, but not this one.

Our server, Kent, was amazing. Our kids (6, 8, 10) had kids’ dinners that weren’t on the menu and they enjoyed it immensely. The only bad thing was a bait-and-switch on the wine (I ordered a 2012 and they brought a 2013 instead). Otherwise, the food was delicious and the drinks were well-executed. Bravo!

I love Ruth Chris but have never tried other Ruth Chris outside of USA. I am shocked by the prices in Canada compared to our US prices. $107 Canadian dollars for a regular ribeye is very expensive compared to our usual here in Florida. Our total bill for 1 ribeye, 1 order of crab cakes, sweet potato casserole and creamed spinach was $200+ Canadian dollars (with taxes and add'l charge without tip) and theyre supposed to have included the $70 voucher from the hotel we are staying for. The food itself was good and service was also good BUT I definitely will not be coming back to the Niagara location or to other Canadian locations if prices are that expensive. It definitely took the fun out for my taste buds. I can always wait to get my ribeye at other Ruth Chris, American side.

Although the service, ambiance and food was amazing the prices at the Niagara falls location are approx 65% higher than their other locations ( Toronto for example)

If you don't mind paying $107 For a steak instead of $69 then just be aware of the difference. We were NOT aware and won't return to this location again.

Our server was outstanding (blond female with pony tail 20 yoa). Other than a good chilled seafood tower, the rest of dinner was food prison riots are made of. Plus, adding a special "Falls Tax" of more than $100 did nothing to improve the meal. It's the first time (I've eaten at numerous Ruth Chris locations) and come away with a $700 bill US (The dollar exchanges approximately $1.30...very favorable to US)
