Steak
The first & only steakhouse of its kind in the Louisville area, Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse serves only dry-aged USDA prime beef. While steak is the foundation of the menu, Jeff Ruby's promises to please seafood lovers as well with its raw/sushi bar & seafood entrees.
Jeff Ruby regulars will be pleased to know that their favorite signature items from the Cincinnati restaurants will be well represented in Louisville. The bone-in filet, the 7 cheese baked macaroni, creamed spinach, truffle flake creamed corn, & of course Jeff Ruby's secret recipe cheesecake will all be staples of the Louisville menu.
Styled after the great NY steakhouses of the 1930's & 40's, Jeff Ruby's promises to be as pleasing visually as it is to the palate. French art-deco design, plush mohair upholstery, hand selected antique furniture and cinematic crystal chandeliers anchored by a 1950s-era antique featured in the Starz series Magic City and the 32 foot wall of wine.

Food was great, but service was disappointing & it was very noisy & crowded. I lost my pricey leftover because I was given the wrong go-home bag.

Food was excellent as usual. They had most of the bar set up for reserve seating. We came in early to sit at the bar and enjoy ourselves. That was the only disappointing spot of the evening.

Had a great experience. The filets were cooked to perfection and the ruby roll never fails to please. The pork chop, although flavorful, was a little tough.

Entree came before Salad , Baked potato came out cold, service was poor. Drinks went dry couple times for pretty long period. Paying 200 plus bill for two that should never happen??? We’ll be going to Eddy Merlots next time we’re in Louisville.

Jeff Rubys never disappoints! If you live in Louisville or just passing through, a visit (and you will return) is a must. We have eaten here several times and it remains our favorite restaurant! Food,service, live music and ambiance are all top notch.
