Diner Reviews
  • "We were there a few months ago and had a bad night. Our dinner this time was back to their high standards. The service as always (thanks Paul) was superb. The food came out properly cooked. All was good! We'll be back."

  • "We call our group the dirty half dozen. We celebrate our birthdays, anniversaries and any other reason to be a little extravagant and dine at Shula's."

  • "My wife and I are regulars at Shula's and have been disappointed. The steaks and service are great and management is friendly and keeps on top of things. The only place we've had a better steak is a fancy hotel restaurant in Japan. While Shula's is pricey, for special occasions it's well worth it. In fact, we drive a full hour to eat there."

  • "We went to shulas celebrating our birthdays. We we got there we were told we would receive a birthday plaque for our table and cake. We never did. When we left we were asked how was your dinner? I replied great but you never came back with our plaque. Her response was we ran out. That's was it. Never came to the table or anything. For the money I expected a little more. But food and service other wise was great."

  • "My husband wanted steak and we have dined at Shula's before and always found it to be exceptional. Service was friendly and attentive and responsive when we asked to be moved due to another diner who sat behind us and her perfume was overwhelming. The Tampa site is brighter and less "masculine" than the Orlando one. As always, the steak is perfectly done and tender and we had the crab mac and cheese - wonderful."

  • "Yes, the food was very good, but the service was slow and somewhat unattentive -- we were quite surprised. Our server didn't even tell us about the complimentary dessert (our anniversary) until AFTER we had ordered and eaten a dessert. We've never had any restaurant fail to inform us, much less one as classy as this one is supposd to be. Very poor show!! We won't be returning anytime soon."

  • "Took my son for his birthday. I told him to find a place and this was what he decided on. The restaurant itself was very nice, the steak was amazing. The four of us had two Kansas City Strips, one NY Strip, and a Filet, all of which were great. both the KC strips were ordered med rare, but my son's definitely came out more rare than mine did, which is the preference for both of us. But was a great cut regardless. We also had grilled asparagus and mashed potatoes, both awesome. Then my sons ordered a lava cake and key lime pie, then for his birthday received a piece of seven layer chocolate cake. Both the chocolate desserts were dark and rich, very good if that's the flavor you're looking for!"

  • "We dined at Shula's in Orlando last year and was really impressed but the Tampa restaurant was a disappointment. There were 2 waiters assigned to us and the 1st one took our order and after that pretty much ignored us. The second waiter was excellent and I left a note on the bill that he should get the entire tip we left. We just got the feeling we were not worthy of his attention. The food did not disappoint... it was fabulous. "

  • "Service was slow and poor. Spouse received her soup while I had to ask twice to have it brought out. Bread was brought to table only after repeated request. Took a solid 10 minutes to have order taken after we had reviewed menu. The only staff member that seemed on top of her job was the lady filling water. I expected better."

  • "Overall, the restaurant was just "good". I expected much more. It was too loud. Difficult to have a conversation or even hear our servers. The experience did not live up to the reputation."

  • "My wife and I had dinner for her birthday Saturday evening. This was my first time at this location. What a pleasant surprise! Everything was great! From the food to the service and they comped my wife's chocolate cake for her birthday. The manager Crystal was wonderful - she went out of her way to make certain we were well taken care of. Steak is better than Flemings hands down. "

  • "We have been to this Shula's a number of times before. Each previous time, the food and service was excellent. This time was another story. I hope it's an aberration and not a trend. The service at the start was fine as were the appetizers. The steaks and the service after that were not so much. There were four of us and two of the steaks were not done properly. One over cooked and the other under-cooked. Both went back and the under-cooked one came back still under-cooked. Drinks started not to be re-filled in a timely manner. The sides were also not up to par. The steak fries were soft an mushy and the asparagus was dry and over-grilled. On the other hand, the Manager did make sure our steaks were fixed and gave us dessert."

  • "Mission complete...Shula's was my pre-final destination after an all day event with my wife. The service was out of this world "on the money". The waiter explained the meats well and was helpful in the ordering. I ordered the Kansas City and my wife the Cowboy Steak. The only comment I would make as far as the steaks is that my wife said her's could had been more flavorful and mine though it was cooked as ordered was kinda dry. Guys we still had the time of our lives that day. Thanks for everything. "

  • "We love going to Shula's, their 12 ounce Filet is so tender best we've ever had. Our server named Gary was so nice we ask for him everytime we go."

  • "We are thankful that this was not our first visit or we probably would not return; it will be a while even at best to come back. The food was very good but the very poor service over shadowed that the experience; form the beginning to the end."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Took us early and were very open to changes based on my sons schedule. Considerate dress code. Steaks were great and we shared sides. Silver Oak cabernet was excellent. Sat next to kitchen entrance that was a bit noisy at times."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Shulas in Tampa is a must . The restaurant is elegant and sophisticated . Steaks are great and the ice cream in a Carmel nut bowl delicious."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Having struggled to find the place, as it is buried inside a hotel, the actual restaurant is very tastefully decorated, but very quiet. Food was fine, not great for the prices charged. More a business venue than family"

  • "This was our first time to shulas.it was a good dining experience the portions were big so me and my wife split the porterhouse steak bake potato and green beans.the wine by the glass was a very nice portion to.i will return"

  • "GREAT food and service, but needed to be reminded for drink refills. Being from Chicago, appreciate great steaks and steak joints, this is NO joint. Partial to Da Coach's restaurants in Chicago, dat being Ditka's. Da Bears."

  • "Porterhouse was excellent. Filet was tender and flavorful. Service was prompt and friendly. Sauteed mushrooms were great. A better view would be nice for the Tampa restaurant; garden or window, but overall a very quiet, romantic experience. Thanks."

  • "We actually enjoyed the service better than the food. They acknowledged my boyfriend's birthday several times, as well as provided free chocolate cake. I was very impressed to be assigned two waiters. They provided us with everything we needed in a very timely manner."

  • "Shula's was great food!, the service was very poor. We had a party of 10 and started out with 3 waiters. Ended with hard to find one. I never check my bill, generally just pay it. Our bill was split into 4 checks and each of us had to double check the bill. Two of us had extra things on the bill.... Still one of my favorites but I will be hesitant to go back. The bill had 18% added since we had a large group! and I always tip extra. Not this time!, David"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "This Shula's was below average. The meat had too much grizzle; we were placed in the lobby area of the hotel although we had reservations and we were overcharged. We had a birthday coupon that was to pay for one entree ($41 plus $6 cake). The coupon specified that gratuity would be automatically added. A "service fee" was added to our bill that was $23.22. I specifically asked Anna and then the bartender if the "service fee" on the receipt was the gratuity and was told "NO." So that I would not short-change Anna, I tipped another $15.00. I was misled. I want my $15.00 back for my additional tip. So, on a $161 meal or $114 after "coupons," I over-tipped for a total of $38.22 for a sub-par meal. Won't be back."

  • "we try to eat here as much as possible . We love the steaks and of course the football theme also. Its quite an upscale theme which adds a little romantic appeal to our evening .The waiters are just wonderful ,they are kind and always at your whim for any need and to keep your drinks topped. The taste of our food is so great we often ask ourselves why we eat any place else , except that its geared for adults so the atmosphere is calm and the conversations are low keyed which brings in the romance of the evening. Its so worth the trip every time ."

  • "Went to Shula's for my anniversary. For the price I expected to be WOWWED by the meal, but it was just ok. Kind of tacky placing a football on a dirty kicking tee in the middle of my wife's plate. Servers were attentive but lacked communication with each other. Best part was the heavy handed bartender."
