Welcome to Our Table

Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Bethesda is located on the ground floor of the Air Rights Building at the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and Elm Street in downtown Bethesda. Soaring ceilings and dark wood complement the inside of the steak house dining room, offering a warm, comfortable atmosphere. Our restaurant features two banquet rooms that seat 20 to 60 guests. Take the metro downtown and spend the day touring local museums, attending a sporting event or a play and finish the evening with our succulent Bone-in Filet and a bottle from our great selection of wines.
