Welcome to Our Table

From memorable meals to milestone celebrations, after-work cocktails to corporate events, Ruth’s Chris Steak House in downtown Chicago perfectly pairs world-class steaks with a welcoming, upscale environment.

Modern meeting conveniences meet classic steak house cuisine: Extensively remodeled and thoughtfully designed, our second floor dining area now moves effortlessly from a warm, welcoming dining space to two modern corporate or personal private dining areas. Complementary audio/visual and attentively appointed details allow us to tailor both form and function to your particular needs.

We put the steak in steak house: Our founder, Ruth Fertel, insisted on nothing less than the top 2% of USDA Prime steaks for all of her restaurants – steaks she sourced right here in the Midwest. To this day, we continue to source only the finest ingredients for the memorable meals our chefs prepare for our guests.

Visit Chicago’s best steak house. While our world-class steaks and their signature sizzle are what put us on the map, here at our River North steak house, you’ll also find fresh seafood, scratch-made sides and desserts, hand crafted cocktails and award-winning wines, all served with the trademark hospitality that would make our namesake proud. Reserve your table today.
