Aw...the venerable steak chain. One of many in bustling CLT but this one is worthy to note. When it comes to steak, these guys have it figured out. After eating at The Palm, Morton's, Sullivan's, Capital Grille, Beef & Bottle, and a few other premium restaurants that serve steak on their menu, Ruth's Chris is the clear winner. If you think all high end steak restaurants are the same, think again. Here, you're greeted by warm hostesses who immediately make you feel invited. Usher yourself into the cocktail lounge and you'll meet some of the friendliest bartenders in CLT. Robin and Michael are both worth introducing yourself to. If you're by yourself, you know how much you appreciate a warm and friendly bartender. The steaks and lamb are served to perfection and always have the best carmelization. Their sides are great and their warm bread plate pleasing. I haven't had their seafood but it looks divine. Trust me on this one, as a connoisseur of good steak, it's worth the price and you'll be happy you went.
Pros: Beautifully prepared prime beef, great staff, great menu
Cons: It is expensive but in life, you get what you pay for
