Highly recommend Ruth's Chris for a wedding reception, 5 star service and treatment! Our guest's were wowed with the venue, staff, and of course food! Kandis, Marin, and the service team are fantastic!! The historical setting set it apart from other venues. Cocktail hour and the first dance was held on the outdoor patio and the reception in the Ruth Room. The ceremony was at the Old South Meeting House, another historical landmark that was only a few steps away. Ruth's Chris exceeded expectations!!

The staff at Ruth's Chris really thought of everything and helped us make informative decisions so our day would go smoothly. Kandis and Alex were great to work with and laid everything out for us at the very beginning and followed through with what we were hoping for from our wedding day while keeping everything very reasonable. There were adjustments that had to be made due to weather conditions and they handled it very professionally and made the event look beautiful and flawless. We didn't have to worry about any of the service since the staff was very good at looking after our guests, served everything well and cleared everything. It was unbelievable! Of course, the food was also phenomenal on top of the great service. All the guests kept raving about it! Ruth's Chris made the whole day very easy and all of our guests had an amazing time, which was absolutely wonderful!
