Under most circumstances, “Going Local” does not focus on chain businesses based in other states, especially when it comes to food. However, we at VIP Limousine will make an exception without hesitation when it comes to Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Why? Simply put, each location is unique and we personally recommend their restaurant for a delicious and special night out. So we would like to explain why we, like the local KSL NewsRadio host Doug Wright, recommend Ruth’s Chris.

Each individual establishment of Ruth’s Chris has its own atmosphere designed to take in the surrounding area and themes to fit in. The Salt Lake City location (pictured below) is nestled in the heart of downtown, and has a modern style inside and out to meld into the city.

Once inside, the restaurant bathes its guests in dark wood, bright linens, and modern finishes which rival the class of any other high-end establishment. Guests feel right at home with their hospitable service and even the private dining area. See for yourself!

Northern Utah does have a special blessing, however; we are home not just to one Ruth’s Chris location, but two! Tucked up high in the Wasatch Mountains is the Ruth’s Chris Steak House Park City, located inside of Hotel Park City along Park Avenue. This location is right next to the slopes of Park City Mountain Resort and delivers mining-town charm and luxury in spades at the same time. It’s only a 30-minute drive from Salt Lake City itself, making it quite accessible from the Wasatch Front.

Stepping inside the Park City location continues the local design theme. Along with the crisp white linens and high-end place settings is ski lodge decor, complete with natural rock and wood. The dining room windows open up with a spectacular view of the mountains, giving an airy feel to the space.

After all of this talk about appearance, atmosphere, location, etc., why does VIP Limousine highly recommend Ruth’s Chris?

It comes down to the food. At each of these two locations, the food is consistently stunning. Since 1965, the restaurant has operated with extraordinarily high standards at every location, sourcing the finest in meats and catering to each customer to make each experience mouth-watering and memorable. We can vouch for the goodness of their steaks, which arrive still sizzling and with simple seasoning allowing the flavors of the meat to speak freely with every bite.

Their other courses are no less desirable. The drinks are freshly-squeezed and other plates are cooked to order where appropriate. The chefs treat the side dishes with great care, allowing flavors to pop. And of course, there’s a dessert on the menu for every appetite…even if you’re stuffed, you’ll somehow manage to make room for more!

With unique locations, consistently high service standards, and glorious food, we at VIP Limousine don’t hesitate to recommend Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Our clients are regular and satisfied patrons of both Utah locations, and we count ourselves among those who have had the pleasure of eating there. So get dressed up; grab a significant other, family, or friends; climb aboard a classy ride; and be transported into the world of great steaks at Ruth’s Chris.
