Anchoring one of the District’s most talked about developments, Ruth’s Chris Steak House at Alexander Court is the place to meet for world-class USDA Prime steaks, private events and a sizzling downtown D.C. happy hour. This steak house location is also open for lunch.

Today’s Ruth’s Chris. Opened in 2020, Ruth’s downtown D.C. location blends a contemporary style with nods to our nation’s history – Classic features like coffered ceilings, arches, crown moldings and rich fabrics are re-imagined through subtle spins on burgundy, white and navy. Off the main dining room, a popular bar area encased with storefront glass pulses with an energy all its own.

Business luncheons to private parties. Four private dining rooms are ideal for business meetings, off-site presentations, private celebrations or holiday events. A large, fanciful painting of George Washington presides over one of the rooms, while in each, state-of-the-art audio visual, privacy and flexibility answer to your event’s needs. 

All with Ruth’s signature sizzle.
Known worldwide for our sizzling USDA Prime steaks and bone-in cuts, you’ll also find fresh seafood, an award-winning wine list and expertly crafted cocktails, along with one of D.C.’s best happy hours.
