Ruth’s Chris Steak House on US One in North Palm Beach. Like Uncle Larry She is NOT aging gracefully – just getting more expensive!


Marty and Tony occasionally twist my arm into going to Ruth’s Chris Steak House on US One in North Palm Beach. Last night’s dining experience snapped my arm off at the shoulder joint. Here’s a few low lights of the evening.

We started with a side order of onion rings and there were only enough for us to have one ring apiece. It wasn’t hot or crunchy so I quickly got over my disappointment of not having two. The House Chopped Salad was fine but we slowly discerned they staffed the kitchen to match the lack of a crowd in the dining room. Fortunately Tony has a new love so we did not notice how terribly long it took for the meats to come.

Marty and I ordered the Porterhouse for two at the bargain price of eighty-five dollars. We asked for medium rare and it came with a warm brown center – adding a touch of crunchiness to the chewy Strip portion. Their steaks are like the price of gasoline. The Cowboy Rib-eye with tax and a 20% tip is now only $62.33. For those of you who don’t eat meat the chicken – which used to be excellent was dry enough to have been cooked yesterday.

My favorite side used to be potatoes Au gratin. When they came out looking like potatoes floating in a cereal bowl we asked what happened and our server, who must be living in the Whitehall Retirement Home in Juno Beach said with a cracked voice – “sir, they’ve changed the recipe.” How do you change the recipe of Potatoes Au Gratin which have been around for centuries.

For our final insult – make that touch of the evening we ordered the hot Raisin Bread Pudding with an extra side of the sauce hot also. You guessed it. The Bread Pudding and sauce came straight from the refrigerator. We asked for the Bread Pudding to go so we could warm it up at home and for the check. Bill Gates would have probably thought four hundred dollars for what we had was fine but not an old retired guy living on fixed income.

I’m sorry I won’t be able to review this once fine restaurant again but slow service, overcooked meat, dry chicken, cold bread pudding at prices I haven’t seen since I filled my gas tank up are too much for –

    Uncle Larry I to was there last night in the lounge for with friends for happy hour. It is everyday 4:30-7 not on Sat. My first time at this Ruth Chris. I like the one at Citiplace much better. This one looked a little dark and outdated.

    Totally agree! Used to be the BEST, albeit a TAD overpriced….now, it is the WORST and INCREDIBLY overpriced, for value received. Our last visit was over a year ago and we won’t ever go back.

  3. Matt – While we don’t get out west to Biminitwist a lot I have enjoyed the times I was there. Its owned by the same family who owns Kee Grill and Jetty’s – both of which are institutions of great respect in North Eastern Palm Beach County. We live about a ten minute walk from Kee Grill and often dine and drink there. We think they have the best Cosmo in North County. Our two favorite fish items are the daily feature Sea Bass with Oriental Glaze and the Bronzed Sword Fish. Their two stellar sides are a moist sweet mashed potato and their famous Spinach Maria. It’s hot, creamy, garlicky spinach that tastes great and by morning has cleaned me out 100%. It’s by far the tastiest cleansing anywhere. We like Kee Grill a lot. My only reservation about Kee Grill is their pricing in season. It is very expensive. The last few times we went the bill was in the Palm Beach Grill category and its just not that good. Bottom line – Kee Grill and Biminitwist have great food and drinks but you had best been a credit card with a high limit or lots of cash and a reservation in season.

    Mark, is that what you want to know?

  4. It is important to also implement proper nutrition that is also outlined in the program.
    Buja boards are excellent for timid dogs that need to build
    confidence slowly. Plyometric training with a rope
    is the perfect way to incorporate the use of the legs and get an amazing workout.

  5. The Air Climber Fitness Stepper is a home-use exercise
    equipment that is an easy way to tone the important muscles of your body such as your thighs, legs,
    calves, arms, triceps, biceps, shoulders, midriff, hips, buttocks and abs.

    Even though, all of them claim to offer flexible and accessible options to health monitoring as well as to reaching target fitness and nutrition goals.
    There are lower end models that will still allow you to do all the basics,
    such as tracking your speed, slope and things similar to
    that.

  6. 80% – 90% from the soils in the carpet can be removed this way.
    Your carpet will not be the most eye-catching feature in your home, nonetheless it can make a subtle difference be it clean and fresh
    or dirty and drab. Gasoline will dissolve the oiliness and so
    the talcum powder will absorb much of the
    oil.

  7. To be as informed as possible, read as many books, articles, and blogs on organic gardening as you can.
    Bug, insects and all sort of nasty creatures could inhabit that very soil and in
    turn can simply destroy your whole operation.
    So, a little background check while buying the seeds or plants
    makes it a crucial step indeed.

    someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
