Shula's is a great place to get a great steak, I/wish we could eat there more often but due to cost it is one of our special occasion restaurants.

Went for Mother's Day for a night out with my wife. It was a night so deserved for her and the staff and Shula's was nothing short of extroundary!! We were welcomed with a great hostess and the table I reserved was ready with the flowers I ordered. We had a great night and we will surely be back!!

Great for Mother's Day Brunch
I went to Shula's on a recommendation of a neighbor for Mother's Day Brunch. The restaurant was not crowded so we were seated right away. The selections available on the buffet were plentiful, and there was an made to order omelet station. The service was attentive and the atmosphere was very nice.

Shula's steaks are consistently excellent. We will continue to go there when in Tampa.

Great friends deserve great dining
We could not think of a better way to thank our great friends than to take them to a great restaurant. The food was wonderful and the staff- from valet to server was outstanding. When celebrating special events, Shula's will be first in line.

Most outstanding service ever!!!
We have eaten at Shula's several times and the food is always excellent. When the food is served the waiter always waits to see if the steak is cooked properly. On this occasion, my wife's meat was slightly overcooked. The waiter agreed and said they would redo it. What was extraordinary, he reached across and took my plate saying they would redo my steak also so that we could eat together. I have never experienced such fine service anywhere. In addition, the manager come over and offered us Loster Bisque while we were waiting.

Shula's in the Intercontinental Hotel in Tampa is one of the best in town. The understated elegant decor, in black and white with a beautiful wood floor, is comfortable and unpretentious, a perfect atmosphere in which to enjoy its fine food. Our filets were so tender they could almost be cut with a fork, cooked exactly as ordered, and were served and presented graciously.
5/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Shula's never disappoints. The food is outstanding and the service is excellent. Our servers, Neil and Jim, timed everything perfectly so we did not feel rushed, but weren't starving either. You never leave Shula's hungry. The portions are always made for sharing. My steak was perfect, as always. This is by far my favorite restaurant. I have celebrated all of my special events at Shula's and look forward to returning again and again!

Great steaks and great service
Great steaks and great service are a hallmark of Shula's and this dinner didn't disappoint. While Shula's is definitely not for the budget-minded it is a prime example of "you get what you pay for."

best steaks I have ever eaten,
best steaks I have ever eaten, waiters are very personable and take care of every need without asking , always courteous and knowledgeable of the menu and have always been like friends even from the first time we ate there

Our Own Private Dining Room
As always, the food and service are excellent. Steak prepared just right and they have the best Steak Fries in town. What was bizarre about this experience is that the Hotel had a power outage that lasted an hour and ended just before we got there. Everything was fine for us, but just as our Entrees were being served, our server told us that their "Hood System" had malfunctioned and that would be closing for the rest of the evening after we were done. It was like having our own private dinning room. We hope they got it fixed quickly!

Took a very special lady to Shula's for her birthday on the 4th of July. The hostess brought us to our table and placed a placard on it announcing a Birthday. The service was impeccable, the food (steaks and lobster) were outstanding and the evening was perfect. My lady friend was so happy with the evening. Loved every second of our dinner at Shula's.

Great food, great atmosphere
I love the quiet atmosphere and the food was excellent. The porterhouse was perfect naked with no sauce. Side was big enough for two and service was attentive and excellent. Chocolate cake was really good.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding place to dine.
We celebrated our 4th anniversary here. The service was great the waiter was very helpful and friendly. Our favorite was lobster bisque it was out of this world. Defiantly come back for more. Thanks to Shula's they finished our special dinner with a seven layer chocolate cake. YUM!!! Overall we had a great time.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
My steak was awesome (filet)--perhaps better than my husband's cowboy ribeye (not a surprise!). Loved our chocolate dessert (soufflé). Crab mac and cheese was a little dry. Asparagus was perfect. Appetizer crab cake was very good. Price was as expected, but noticed many customers just coming for dessert or appetizers which suggests they just wanted the quiet ambiance at a lower price. They surely missed a great steak. Service was very attentive and generous as it was our wedding anniversary. Thanks for a lovely evening.

The Wife Loved it!
In town for business and stayed in the Intercontential and Shula's was down stairs. It was late and we decided to have dinner in the hotel. We had a great meal.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Steak lovers steak
My bone in ribeye was perfect, marbling but no gristle, flavor and texture but not chewy. My son had an amazing 24 oz porterhouse, with the filet side truly melt in your mouth and the strip side rich and full.
He had steak fries that were amazing. Large, crisp, but moist and firm, he actually broke them up to soak up steak juice from his plate.
I had the twice baked potato, and it had a very strong garlic/chive flavor that took away from my steak. It actually overpowered with aftertaste.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I went to Shula's for our anniversary dinner. We had a gift card from some time ago and made the most of the night with soup for each, filets, two side vegetables, dessert and drinks. Quite pricey but the quality is evident. Highly recommended.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wondeful experience. The food was excellent, the service was top notch and the decor was perfect.

They specialize in the very best steaks and cuts of meat. Melt in your mouth prime rib! Crab cakes were all crab and delicious. Don't miss the wonderful sauteed spinach - amazing!

Our first visit to Shula's
Our first visit to Shula's was this past Father's Day. The food was so delicious and the setting was peaceful and romantic we decided for Jerry's birthday to return. We both had the special for $45. For starters, we had calamari which was the best we both have ever had and french onion soup. For dinner, Jerry had steak and I had the salmon. Both so delicious. Because it was Jerry's birthday they brought out all three desserts. All three were good but the key lime I personally feel topped all three. Chocolate is my favorite but the cake seemed a little dry but it was still good. The service was outstanding. We would highly recommend Shula's to anyone for any occasion.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a great night. Restaurant is simply elegant, tables spaced far apart for easy conversation. Wait staff were wonderful, there when you needed them but invisible otherwise. Ceasar was excellent, calimari was served as strips and were done perfectly. Wife had salmon which she said was very good and I had a NY strip done medium rare was flavorful and cut with a fork. Desserts were sooo good we took them home to enjoy.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I visit Shula's approximately 5 to 6 times a year. The steaks are always on point, cooked perfectly and seasoned well. The service is extremely consistent and pleasant. Every time we visit it is always an enjoyable experience. Favorites: 'Cowboy" Rib Eye, grilled Asparagus, Mushrooms, and of course a great red wine. Will keep coming back!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first (but not last) dining experience at Shulas, it was our birthdays & we could not have had a better time! The service was impeccable as was the food. Thanks for making our celebration memorable. Trish & BJ

The BEST steaks EVER!
I have been to Shula's Steakhouse in Tampa, FL, as well as other locations throughout the years. I have ALWAYS had a wonderful experience each and every time I went. Shula's steaks are by far the BEST STEAKS ANYWHERE, ANYTIME! Additionally, the service is State of the Art; the atmosphere is top-notch! I can not say enough good things about Shula's Steakhouse Restaurants! I plan on being a regular customer for the rest of my life as long as I have good enough health to travel to Shula's and as long as I can afford to pay the bill! My wife and I LOVE SHULA"S STEAKHOUSE!
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
worth the price
Shula's steakhouse is definitely on the pricey side with the cheapest steak being $41.00 and all sides/salads are A La Carte. However,their sides are very generous in portion and so are most of their steaks so you can actually share one meal and be blown away by the Shula excellence at a more reasonable price (yes, they do allow couples to split a meal). The wait staff was wonderful and so were the hostesses. If you haven't ever tried Shula's its definitely worth the money to try it! Hands down wonderful all around. You could literally cut the steak with a fork. The chocolate cake isn't bad either!!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been there enough that
We've been there enough that the server s know us. It was my Wife's Birthday month (be sure to join their "club") and we both had a great time. She even had some champagne. Food as always is well prepared and the service is splendid. Paul and Sam did great as always. We'll be back.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I ate at Shula's in Tampa the other night, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The services was top notch and my steak was magnificent. The Shula's brand is expanding, and even though I have never eaten at the original in Miami Lakes, I have enjoyed each one I have eaten at.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
My daughter and I booked a weekend in Tampa at the Intercontinental. I was thrilled to introduce her to Shula's. We had a fabulous meal with exceptional service.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Shula's is awesome
We love going to Shula's, the 12 ounce filet is our favorite. Gary our server is the best, we request him every time we go. It is alittle pricy, but we go a few times a year for our birthday's & our anniversary. We would reccomend Shula's for the best food, and service in the Tampa Bay area. If you haven't had the pleasure of dining here you really should, we have always enjoyed visiting Shula's.

Good food - need earplugs
This restaurant is in a hotel. The diners are a varied group. Dinner was marred by three very loud parties who competed to be the loudest. As the noise escalated everyone had to talk louder to be heard over the din. This place badly needs noise attenuation. There is no way to escape.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was not what he
The service was not what he hads been in the past. The server did not check and did not realize it was my wife's birthday. I had asked for a quiet table away from the crowd. He tried to seat us right beside a large party. I had to ask to be moved and he seemed put off by this.
The hostess did not check us in and seat us, I think this is what caused some of the issues.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful overall experience. Very friendly and accommodating. Took a while to get our drinks.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every aspect of our dining experience was outstanding.. I can't provide an;y recommendations for improvement because it was a totally enjoyable experience (food, service, surroundings) We'll be back.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Shula's is what one would expect from a high priced steakhouse. Service was great, food was top shelf and fresh. I can't say that the steak was the "best" I've ever had but it was certainly a good one. Only 1 of 6 persons in the group actually complained about their steak's "doneness" so I guess that's cool. Our list of steakhouses in cities that we visit (for NFL football games) includes; Morton's, Ruth Chris, St. Elmo's, the Palms, and now Shula's. This Shula's in the top half of those.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a great place to come for my birthday. All of our food was served hot and was delicious. I am pretty much a vegetarian but occasionally will eat Salmon about once a month. The one complaint that I had was I had gone on-line to view the menu and Salmon was definitely one of the options. So I had made up my mind this was what I was going to order. When the time came to order it, I was told there was a party of 500 people in the other room and all the Salmon was gone. Our waiter assured me that he could get me the Salmon dinner I wanted. Well he returned shortly afterwards and informed me it was all gone. The dessert was excellent. I had requested Sorbet instead of cake. The Sorbet was so good.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for a special event. good food, service. Best steak....

Shula's is awesome
We always enjoy eatting at Shulas in . Our favorite server is Gary.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a Nice Meal
My wife and I frequent Shula's when we are feeling like a nice meal, and in particular their Steak Mary Anne. Wines are always great, and service is fantastic.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect Anniversary Dinner
Everything was perfect. The service, the food, even the neighboring tables. We are new in town and ended up making new friends. We decided at the end of our meal that we are starting a new tradition to come back to Shula's every year for our anniversary.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Steak I've had in a while
If you go to Shula's please order the Cowboy Ribeye with Bone, and order it medium, it doesn't need any steak sauce. Trust me! you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend Shula's to everybody!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
I did not care for my leftovers
I did not care for my leftovers boxed in just a cardboard box...also not done in my presence.

Food was very good! Bone in Ribeye was cooked perfectly! Great service! Would definitely go back.

Thanksgiving Out - This is a Keeper
Our tradition is to go out for Thanksgiving, since it's just the 2 of us. We have tried several restaurants in Tampa over the years and, so far, this one beats them all for the holiday. Service was impeccable, ambience was clean, classy, and tables were well laid out. The subtle background music and lack of loud/boisterous kids allowed us to have a normal conversation. The food was delicious and portions were huge. Asparagus vs. haricot verts might have been a better choice for greens. We shared the pumpkin spice cake. It was delicious and more than the two of us could eat. The restaurant is somewhat pricey but given the quality of service, food, ambience and overall experience, we would eat here again for a special occasion.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Shula's does not disappoint
Went there for a birthday celebration with family members and the G baby, (who is 6). Everyone enjoyed themselves. The food and service was wonderful and each member of the party felt that they were treated as a "special guest".
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good, not great
Service was outstanding. Food was good. Appetizers portions are puny, but good. Leave the Creme Brulee Dessert on the menu. It was a bit of a let down.
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Steak to remember!
Steaks were Excellent as always! Cooked to perfection! A bit pricey. Best for Special Occasion.
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fantastic food and service
I took my wife to Shula's for her birthday and it was an outstanding experience. We both had the 12 oz Filet and split a baked potato. Our meat was cooked to perfection and the baked potato (shared on the advice of our waiter) was more than enough
for each of us and delicious. The piece of cake they brought for her celebration was the perfect ending for the meal. It was a
very special experience.
