Welcome to Our Table

From memorable meals to milestone celebrations, happy hours to hosted events, Ruth’s Chris in downtown Austin blends award-winning dining with a refreshingly remodeled atmosphere in our vibrant capital city steakhouse.

Modern design tuned to an Austin rhythm: Our remodeled interior brings together a richness and authenticity that make it as unique as this city we call home. In our beautifully updated dining area, Austin-inspired artwork anchors the space, while new custom light fixtures inspired by those found in the French Quarter give a nod to our NOLA roots, creating a medley of our two musical cities.

The classic steakhouse lounge, reimagined: Our expanded bar, with its playful vibe and refined rustic elegance, is now a destination of its own. Natural birch dividers and richly aged leather accents along the bar meld with white quartz walls, large tufted booths and eclectic art elements like our 3D bat sculpture, setting the stage for an evening to remember.

Savor the “Best Steak in Austin.” While we’re known for our world-class USDA Prime steaks, aged bone-in cuts and their signature sizzle, you’ll also find fresh seafood, scratch-made sides and desserts, hand-selected wines and expertly crafted cocktails. All served with the sort of warm Texas welcome that would make our namesake proud.
