Ruth's Chris Steak House Has A Weirdly Strict Dress Code
Dress codes might seem like a thing of the past, but many restaurants still place restrictions on their patrons’ attire. Restaurants have often come under fire for these dress codes, but many eateries still strongly suggest certain types of dress for their patrons, with Ruth's Chris Steak House being a perfect example.
The chain aims to "promote a comfortable, family-friendly, and welcoming atmosphere for everyone,” part of which includes providing a list of what they ask guests not to wear. There's a prohibition on clothing with offensive graphics or language, as well as tank tops, cutoff shorts, and exposed undergarments.
Hats are not allowed in the main dining room — unless they are fascinators or cocktail hats — while ball caps and jerseys are only allowed in the bar area. It seems Ruth's Chris believes the benefits of its dress code outweigh the negative feedback, so keep it in mind next time you head out for dinner at a fancy restaurant.
