Flame creates the sizzle at our high-end American steakhouse. The finest cuts of Midwest steaks and fresh seafood are prepared to impress and delight in an atmosphere of rich wood, comfortable colors, fresh flower centerpieces, and warm lighting.

Our steaks and seafood are complemented by a variety of local ingredients. House-made butters and sauces add a unique and decadent flair. Ruthie's signature entree selections like the filet marmalade, Maryland ribeye, Australian lobster tails, Chilean sea bass, and prime rib give you succulent flavors that you'll find at every Ruthie's Steak & Seafood location. Start your dining experience with our signature pheasant civet, shrimp cocktail, or jumbo lump crab cake and consider adding a signature salad or side dish served family style. The attention to detail and delicate touch of our chef de cuisine completes every dish and completes a menu dedicated to extraordinary dining.

To complement your fine dining experience, enjoy libations you'd expect from a metropolitan hot-spot. Our wine selection is vast and designed to be the best in Eastern Iowa. Choose, or let our experienced and intuitive team assist you in choosing, from the finest wines, craft cocktails, lagers, and ales.

Meet the Chef:

Tom Torres, Chef de Cuisine

Tom Torres

Tom Torres grew up in Conesville, just 17 miles from Riverside. There, his grandmother inspired a passion for food and warming hospitality, and his farmer grandfather inspired the values of hard work and using fresh ingredients.

After graduating from the Culinary Arts program at Indian Hills in Ottumwa, Tom's adventures around the world began. He graduated from the International Culinary School in Valladolid, Spain, earning him the distinction of holding culinary certifications on two continents. His travels did not end in Valladolid. He spent 30 months going coast to coast in Spain, then from the south of France to Portugal to the tip of Africa. In that time, he worked in such notable Michelin 2-star restaurants as La Botica and Villa Paramesa. Tom eventually came back to the USA and moved to the Chicagoland area, working at Hotel Arista and Paris Bistro in Naperville. He then spent six years growing as a chef and manager at Market House on the Square in Lake Forest.

In 2019, Tom moved back to Iowa to be closer to family. He worked at Iowa City's Graze before becoming Ruthie's chef de cuisine in 2021.
