Ruth's Chris? For the price, you'd be certifiable not to go to one Ruby's places or Mortons and get better service and a better meal.
I'm glad there are some people that like what the Banks is doing. Thus far, it hasn't been my cup of tea.
I love that the Banks and the new Riverfront Park have brought so much activity to the riverfront. It's not my cup of tea either, so I don't frequent the places that often. I suggest checking out the OTR restaurants Reds/Flyer suggested, there are plenty of tremendous local places scattered throughout downtown and OTR. The Banks will always cater to a suburban, chain type of crowd and I have no problem with that.
