He started us off with a couple of drinks. The Happy Hour menu has a catchy little name of Sizzle, Swizzle and Swirl – all items are $7. I went for the Rocks Rita and Lauren had the Blueberry Mojito. We both LOVED our drinks. We felt really bad for not drinking all of them but we had to be mindful of driving home.
After the drinks, we got to start the food train! First up was Spicy Lobster which was lightly battered and fried and then dipped in a spicy cream sauce. This was light but rich and completely decadent. Both of us devoured this bowl of deliciousness. It was definitely one of our favorite dishes and at $7 – it’s a great deal! I don’t usually think of lobster as something you batter & fry – but it’s hearty enough to take it and yet maintain it’s integrity. The spicy cream sauce was great – it wasn’t drenched but it was definitely present. Excellence.
We also tried the Seared Ahi Tuna – again $7! The tuna was cooked just right but I could tell by the texture that the tuna had been frozen. There’s just a different texture with fish that’s been frozen – a little mushier. I understand it’s hard to get fresh fish – and they are a steak house – but I didn’t love it. The sauce was also pretty spicy – which the description doesn’t mention. Not too spicy – but it was spicier than the lobster. Not a bad item – but I wouldn’t get it again.
Ruth’s Chris is also available for catering. We liked it so much Lauren booked them for an upcoming catering need at our work!
Why Should You Go? Haven’t I explained that by now?! The Happy Hour is a great deal and a chance for you to try their menu and see what they have to offer. It definitely made me want to go back for more and for the full dinner menu!
