Ruth's Chris has two Charlotte locations. Known for exceptional service, prime cut beef and exemplary wine selection. We normally focus on the local eateries, but my wife was due for a romantic wine & dine and I was in the mood for a killer steak Uptown. Speaking of Uptown, it was Friday night and the streets were buzzing with people looking to ring up cash registers and throw down drinks.
The Ruth's Uptown location has a prime spot on South Tryon Street and stays packed during the day with the corporate lunch sect and at night with events, corporate parties and your average Charlotte food lover looking to splurge on a fine meal in a classic setting.
Do not forget about the wine selection. This is how you can let the bill get away from you in a heart beat... Wines range from $45 a bottle to well, um more than I could ever justify spending.
The food was pretty reasonable for the level of presentation, quality and surroundings. For $40 you got a large dinner salad, a family style side, and a prime fillet and shrimp entree served on the trademark 500 degree sizzling plate.
Included in the $40 is a dessert combo of chocolate pecan bark and a cheesecake cupcake that put the finishing touches on my food coma.
