Ruth’s Chris Steak House will move its existing Sandy Springs restaurant to Alpharetta this fall. Franchisees Jim Brooks, Phil Brooks, Mark Oswald and Nancy Oswald have purchased the property and building at 11655 Haynes Bridge Road just off Ga. 400 — the former Rainwater Restaurant location.

Designed in the tradition of a vineyard estate, the 18,248 square-foot restaurant was first built in 2001 for more than $7 million with high-end, custom-designed features throughout and ample private dining and banquet facilities. The building includes a brick vaulted-ceiling wine room with climate controlled storage for over 9,000 bottles.

Ruth’s Chris Alpharetta will feature a range of dining options for the restaurant’s guests, both for individual dining and for private events.

The restaurant, which boasts numerous private rooms including a banquet room that will accommodate up to 200 guests, will undergo a total refurbishment prior to reopening as Ruth’s Chris Steak House.

“This was an opportunity that we simply had to seize,” co-owner Jim Brooks said in a statement.

“It has been a wonderful 20-plus years in Sandy Springs, but the Haynes Bridge site offers the ability to be in a distinct trade area from our other three Atlanta restaurants with the bonus of unprecedented event space,” partner Mark Oswald continued in the same statement.
