    The problem with the local Ruth's Chris is inconsistency. One night you'll get the best Filet of your life, next time it could be as average as Sizzlin' Steak House..

    As someone who worked in two different Ruth's Chris' Steak Houses, including the Nashville one, I stay away. They definitely have the best quality meat, and use really great ingredients. That being said, if you look around a little, you can find Prime Beef and good seafood that you can cook better at home. If you don't know how to cook, the chain steakhouses are a good experience. If you can cook, and enjoy it, it's a waste of your money.

    Morton's has a good happy hour though, especially if you're looking to run into people. I've heard that Flemings has a good bar menu with great burgers, but haven't done it myself.

    That's probably the main reason I prefer Stoney River. I never order steak out, because I'd rather grill one.

    Of course I've had steak at both restaurants otherwise it would be dumb to compare them. And steak was great at both and everything, but I've had other dishes at both places. It's the atmosphere that puts SR over the top for me.

    I've only been to SR once, and it was for lunch and I had an entree salad, but it was perfectly fine. I've got nothing against them. Very similar, in my opinion, to J. Alexanders. Focus on consistency and good service. You may not being getting anything crazy or that you couldn't do yourself, but you can count on them to do a good job and pay attention to the details when you just want a simple meal out.
