Recently I celebrated my birthday and my wife and daughter made reservations at Ruth Chris Steak House at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, MD.
I haven't been to a steak house in quite awhile but I have to say Ruth Chris Steak House is esquisite! If you want to feel spepcial, this is the place to go The decor is purely Southern as Ruth Chris started her business in Louisiana. Table seting is inpecable and the service is spectacular. Don't just go with the intention of just eating a great steak. You need to go to appreciate the overall experience!
The menu was simple yet enticing with interesting new dishes offered for appetizers and dinners. I recommend the dinner special which includes your choice of salad. I chose the Caesar Salad. The rommaine lettuce was crisp and chilled with freshly sliced parmesan cheese and just the perfect touch of dressing. Not over bearing but freshly put together whereas some salads become wilty before it gets to the table.
For the appetizer, I chose the Louisiana Seafood Gumbo. The presentation of the gumbo had cous cous centered on the plate while the waiter poured the perfet quantity of gumbo into my plate, just enough to tantalize my palate with a touch of hot and sweetness in the gumbo. Consistency was perfect, not watery or too thick.
The entree, I chose a 16 ounce rib eye steak cooked medium. The flavor was natural and delicious and the texture of th steak was so tender and scrumptious like a rib eye should be. My side order was cream of spinach and it paired well with the steak.
The sparkling water helped digestion but was sparkling. Yes, I could have chose a nice Cabernet Savignon but will do it on the next visit.
The dessert was a let down, apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
if you've been working hard and want a relaxing and comfortable dining experience, I highly recommend Ruth Chris Steak House.
