Restaurants – Bars in KENNESAW, GA. Beginning in 1965 New Orleans with a determined woman by the name of Ruth Fertel, the Ruth’s Chris story takes off. Ruth firmly believed in the benefits of perseverance and altruism. We believe in serving you the traditional steakhouse experience in a sophisticated atmosphere. At the first restaurant site, she famously employed an all-female wait staff of hard-working single mothers who became known as the “Broads on Broad Street.” No matter where our visitors join us, we want them to feel at home in one of our restaurants by offering the finest caliber of exquisite dining and customer service.
