Shula's Steak House - Tampa
Awesome diningShula'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!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPositively OutstandingShula'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 AMMost 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.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat friends deserve great diningWe 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.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaksShula's steaks are consistently excellent. We will continue to go there when in Tampa.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Mother's Day BrunchI 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.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMShula's is a great place toShula'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.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome timeWent 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!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual the best!We had a great time, and the food was perfect, as well as the service. Great for a romantic dinner.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOver-PricedCrab cakes were large and very tasty. Porterhouse steak (ordered med-rare) was over-cooked and relatively tasteless. Appetizer consisted of 2 scallops. Staff was attentive and professional, although I was never asked about my steak other than a flashlight shined on it when served. Free champagne and a piece of chocolate cake was a nice touch and added to our special occasion.
I am normally a generous tipper, but probably came up a little short in this case because I felt that the meal did not measure up to the price.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to the restaurantWe went to the restaurant to celebrate our 18th anniversary. Making the reservations on line was simple and all instructions were followed. The service was very professional. From what we could see, all their servers were seasoned, mature, and very professional.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, the wait staffGreat food, the wait staff was a little aloof and not attentive- this restaurant didn't seem to appreciate the guests but the food was good.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my Birthday CelebrationIt was my Birthday Celebration and always a treat to come here. We've had our server before and the service as always was excellent. They even followed up on the phone to ask if everything was good. Nice! The food was excellent as always. Steaks cooked perfectly. The Onion Soup was a little less "rich" than usual. Not sure why, but it was still good. We'll be back. Also, don't forget to signup for membership in their "club." It gives you a Birthday Entree for free in your birthday month!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a pleasure to dineIt was a pleasure to dine in a quite, very clean and no loud noise restaurant. Service was good, steak was perfect. I will dine there every time I come to Tampa.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steakhouse in Tampa!This is actually my favorite restaurant in Tampa! My husband and I have what we call "fine dining Saturdays" where we try out a different restaurant every week. We aren't allowed to go back to the same restaurant twice unless it's a special occasion. I picked Shula's to go back to for my birthday. Steaks are cooked exactly how they are supposed to be cooked and are incredible. Looking forward to more special occasions so that I can choose Shula's again! We have been to most of the famous steakhouses here ... Ruth's Chris, Fleming's, Charley's, Salt Rock, Bern's, Malio's, The Palm, etc. Shula's is top on the list. Delicious, warm, fresh out of the oven bread. And an added, unexpected perk: on my birthday, my entree was free!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCrab Mac and Cheese is toCrab Mac and Cheese is to die for. Steaks are always done to perfection.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall the dining experienceOverall the dining experience was outstanding. The bread was simply amazing. The standard salad was a little lacking or maybe it was the vinegarette. Everyone at our table had different cuts of beef and the consensus was the porterhouse was the winner although the filet was a close second. All in all an enjoyable experience.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there for a birthdayWent there for a birthday dinner. Food was excellent; all questions about the food were answered. Service was superb.

After missing our connection in Tampa and being required to stay overnight, it was very welcome to have been greeted by the manager on duty that day and the server and offered whatever we wished to have for dinner. We wanted a quiet yet ambient atmosphere with food choices, and we found them there. And even though it was late, we never felt rushed to eat and go.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGive your review a titleExcellent!! Must say the bread was the best I have had in years.1/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
