Renowned Fine Dining Steak House Debuts Third Location on Long Island

Ruth’s Chris Steak House, famous for its unmatched dining experience and steaks served on 500-degree sizzling plates, announced today its newest location in Melville, which will open for business on August 15.

The new Ruth’s Chris restaurant will be located at 881 Walt Whitman Road, bringing an unmatched dining experience to the area in its new 10,684-square-foot restaurant. The new space will feature a main dining room, a luxurious bar with ample seating and a variety of high tops as well as three private dining rooms that can accommodate personal and family celebrations, business meetings and much more. The space is elegantly appointed and thoughtfully designed to provide a pleasurable and comfortable dining experience for every guest.

With over 150 restaurants, Ruth’s Chris has been in business for more than 57 years. As part of the pre-opening celebration, for the newest location in Melville, Ruth’s Chris will host a special dinner with community leaders, business owners, and Ruth’s Chris executives to raise money for Long Island’s Island Harvest Food Bank.

“We’ve had the pleasure to serve the Long Island community for many years, and are fortunate to make available our one-of-a-kind experience to even more guests in the area,” said William Nicholson, general manager for Ruth’s Chris in Melville. “Ruth’s Chris offers its guests an exclusive dining experience – whether they’re celebrating a special occasion or enjoying an intimate dinner – no matter the size, we look forward to welcoming guests into our restaurant and showcasing the same top-notch service they’re accustomed to from the brand.”

“The Melville location will be our third in the area, representing an exciting expansion in the region that further entrenches us throughout Long Island’s fine dining scene,” said Cheryl Henry, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ruth’s Hospitality Group, Inc. “We look forward to welcoming new guests, as well as those who are already familiar with and passionate about our brand.”

At Ruth's Chris, the last bite is just as good as the first. The company’s perfected broiling method and seasoning techniques ensure each cut of USDA Prime beef arrives cooked to perfection and sizzling on a 500-degree plate – just the way Ruth’s Chris founder Ruth Fertel liked it.

Representing the highest-quality beef, these cuts are well marbled and hand-selected for thickness and tenderness. Ruth only served her guests the finest, and that’s why Ruth’s Chris serves custom-aged USDA Prime beef.

While Ruth’s Chris’ USDA Prime steaks and their signature sizzle may have put the restaurant on the map, guests can also enjoy fresh seafood, scratch-made side dishes and desserts, craft cocktails and choice wines, served with the sort of hospitality that would make its namesake proud.

Ruth’s Chris will also offer its Sizzle, Swizzle, Swirl Happy Hour at the Melville location with mouthwatering food and full-size appetizers from 4:00p.m. – 6:00p.m. every Sunday through Friday.
