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.

We love celebrating special occasions at Jeff Ruby's. The service is always spectacular! We always feel we are well cared for each time we have dined there. John, our server, was great as we celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary, knowing just when to stop by and check on us but also allowing us time to enjoy the moment. And as always the food was delicious. We will be back!

You just can not beat Jeff Ruby’s. The food, service and environment is second to none. The louisville location is my favorite and doesn’t have a close second in that market. Get The Godfather roll and finish your steak Collinsworth.

Excellent service. Waiter was beyond awesome. Beautiful environment. Food was great steak was unbelievable. Macaroni was a little too sharp but still edible. Seating is a little cramped with other tables, but still a beautiful place I will definitely come back sooner than later

Not pleased with the food. Caesar salad 1/10. Ruby Roll 7/10. Chicken entree 1/10. I’d stick with the steak and basic sides, and of course, the exhaustive bill.

friendly greeting at the door; seated quickly. Professional wait staff greeted us at table. Took drink orders quickly. Allowed time to review the wine list and menu before ordering. Made good recommendations on portion sizes. Pacing was good to allow for conversation and not feeling rushed or too slow. Excellent steak and scallops meals. Honest recommendation on different styles and flavors and size of desserts. well done.

We’ve been here 1000 times and this was the first sub par experience. Food was great as usual but the service was really off. Server just never seemed to be “with it”. Seemed to be overwhelmed. Had to be reminded to bring second round of drinks. I don’t know what the deal was but NOT GOOD. And then to finish it off, it was a birthday celebration. Always have we gotten a generous slice of cheesecake on a platter with Happy Birthday written in sauce. NOPE. After having to mention it was my husbands birthday, which I clearly stated when making the reservation, he got served a tiny little trio of one bite brownie, a truffle maybe and something else. Just sad. Sooo disappointed.

Absolutely one of the best meals we’ve had. Oysters, steak, drinks (great cocktails), awesome sides (Brussel spouts, truffle corn, lobster mac n cheese)...dessert was peanut butter pie, butter pie and homemade ice cream! We had a large party and everyone was impressed. Thank you for the best service! Valet parking as well.
