In the 40 years since its founding, Ruth’s Chris Steak House has grown from a single restaurant in a modest New Orleans neighborhood to a franchise empire of over 130 individual restaurants across the globe. The most refreshingly uplifting part is that through this all, Ruth’s managed to avoid losing touch with its roots. Many of the traditions set forth by Ruth’s original founder, Ruth Fertel continue even to this day, traditions like their sizzling steak, and their unfailing hospitality. Ruth’s only serves custom aged USDA prime steaks. There’s no one, signature steak that Ruth’s does better than the rest. Their succulent petite fillet, delicious rib-eye, and generously-portioned porterhouse are all given equal measures of loving attention when they’re seasoned, aged, and cooked to perfection.

Let Shula's score on all five of your senses with brilliant playcalling from its menu, beginning with a cluster bomb of fresh, seasonal oysters ($12). Steakhouse aficionados can frolic over premium Black Angus hills and dales of a juicy 16-ounce prime rib (served with Yorkshire pudding, $38) or roll with an 8-ounce filet mignon ($38). Contrarians may shun bovine entrees in favor of aquatic prey such as fresh jumbo sea scallops, served with roasted tomatoes, garlic spinach, and beurre blanc ($30).
Though you can always drive up to the Historic Downtowner Saloon, that's not the recommended way to arrive. Instead, customers might want to take the water taxi right up to the downtown stop to get a preview of the river views granted by the restaurant's riverfront patio. Here, guests can enhance their waterside experience with expertly prepared American fare and 20 new craft beers waiting to quench to the most discerning drinker.
While new owners now helm Historic Downtowner Saloon, its chefs tend to their culinary labors, be it slow-roasting prime rib or turning out seafood specials, sandwiches, and appetizers. In the kitchen, they grill slabs of sizzling sirloins and pair them crab cakes drizzled in a Cajun remoulade. Once delivered to guests, ancho shrimp tacos do flavorful dances across palates, while a raw bar, stocked with bowls of littleneck clams and Caribbean jerk shrimp, puts appetites on ice. Most nights of the week, a live band serenades guests with tunes as relaxing as surfing on a waterbed—unless there are sharks inside the waterbed.
