    Steaks were great. BBQ shrimp with bacon was tasty. Expensive for the good food. However they do have great burgers and other options at lower prices. Nice place but more sports bar met fine dining than Ruth Chris. Service was friendly and attentive. Be prepared to drop 190 bucks for 3 if you get steaks with a bottle of ok wine w tip.

    Can't talk enough about the food! Ordered the Shula cut strip steak and it was spectacular (as always). It was juicy, tender and melted in my mouth! Cudos to the chef! The service was great, too. Very attentive and friendly. Went for a birthday celebration. Had a great time. Only thing missing was the usual offer of a desert to celebrate the day. Wish we had ordered the special Carrot Cake, it's the best around town. Maybe next time. Note: Go early, make a reservation. It's convention time and Shula's is a hot spot. Get a booth if you can, so comfy.

    Went here for lunch this week while staying at the Marriott and loved it. The food was pretty good, the Rusty Nail was perfect, and the service by Connor was simply awesome!!! Our server was a young man named Connor and he was so good that it made us come back the next night after a wedding reception with the wedding party -12 of us. A cocktail waitress was serving the group. I got there after drinks were placed and asked bartender for drink. she refused - said use the waitress! Peeved me. 5 minutes an no waitress so I went back AGAIN and ordered while handing my credit card over. The scowling female bartender made my drink finally. I recommend going if you can get Connor to serve you but to avoid the bar area as the service isn't as good.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    NY strip was a good steak but not a $35 steak, which in my mind should be on par with a real steak house where they dry age and cut their own meat. This is no where close to a great steak house. The side of brocolini was steamed. That's it. And it wasn't that hot when it got to the table. No seasoning, special preparation, sauce, or presentation. Just steamed. The server was friendly and she did a good job but was not of the caliber you'd expect. That was basically the story with every aspect of the meal. It was decent, but decent is less than I expected. Maybe this is place is good for Norfolk, but I can't imagine it competing in any other downtown I've been to.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 1/21/2013
    So lets be honest. The steaks were great. They had a few other gems as well (a friend of mine ordered the blue cheese chips. He said they were amazing. I can't stand blue cheese, so I wouldn't know. He also says the ahi tuna appetizer was OK but not great). I really liked the layout of the restaurant. It seems like if it were really busy you would have your own space and not feel crowded. At the same time, it's rather awkward sitting in a booth and having your server reach over you to drop drinks or silverware. It can feel rather awkward if you are wearing a low cut shirt. I woudln't recommend this for a romantic outing, but if you're going out with friends for a few martinis and a steak this place is great!

    Foodie757
    Dined on 12/15/2012
    Food was OK, but as they are known for their steaks, I was expecting much better. I had the Cowboy steak, the 16oz bone in sirloin, which had a fair amount of grissel and tough tendinous material through the steak, requiring much trimming, leaving far less good steak remaining to eat. My main disappointment was the service. We have dined here before, and the service is usually impeccable. Perhaps we had a new waiter who doesn't know the drill (Conner). He was not well versed on the menu, made a couple mistakes on the order, was not attentive to the table, and I couldn't get his attention for quite some time at several points when we needed something. This ruined the entire dining experience for me, not sure if we will be back.

    We loved the comfortable feeling of this place – tasteful and personable. We will definitely return. My wife had Filet Mignon Oscar. I had a Filet Mignon w/Smashed Potatoes and Grilled Asparagus. I ordered the Red Onion Jam for my steak (also came w/ Béarnaise) but it was perfect without either condiment. While my steak was perfect by itself, the Oscar added a savory dimension. We shared the Five Layer Carrot Cake and it was second best I ever had (my best friend makes the best). Service was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable.

    We attempted to have a work dinner on a Thursday evening and Shula's turned out to be a very poor choice. The sound from the lively bar area was very distracting in the upstairs restaurant area. We heard Shula's was known for steaks, so all in our party of 5 ordered steaks with mixed results. One steak was incredibly undercooked and the refire took almost the entire dinner to get back from the kitchen. Needless to say, Shula's is off our list for future client dinners.

Afterward, cross the street for a walk on the waterfront. (This part of Norfolk isn't scary.) We rode the ferry just for fun.
