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.

My go to place when in Louisville. This visit did not disappoint. Our server recommended a great bottle of Cabernet to start off the dining experience. I ordered the Cowgirl steak (bone in ribeye). It was cooked to perfection. Loved every bite.

My friend got the petite filet with a lobster tail and really liked it.

Be sure to make a reservation if you hope to get in on a weekend. The food is a bit pricey, but it is incredible.

If you're into sushi, get the Godfather roll. You're going to be happy with any steak you order but my go to is the Cowboy Bone-in Ribeye. The mac & cheese is a must for one of your sides. Killer Old Fashions, on point creme brulle. I don't have enough in me to tell how legitimate the wine library is here. Make reservations well in advance!

Jeff Ruby's was as iconic, fun, classy but comfortable as I had hoped it would be, not to mention the food was awesome. I will definitely recommend it to others as well as revisit it when back in Louisville.

I live in the Chicago area and each year for the past 5 years I have been attending the HNA Show in Louisville. Since year one, I have eaten at Jeff Ruby's and will continue each time I visit Louisville. I have taken several clients here with each time everyone being impressed with the food, service and ambiance. Two years ago I tried a different restaurant and was have a really bad experience. I called Jeff Ruby"s, while at the other restaurant, explained what was going on and they said come here and we will take care of you and that's what we did. From that point on, I only make reservations at Jeff Ruby's.....period.

The service and my steak were impeccable. The Caesar salad and side purchased, Hash Brown Potatoes, were good but not outstanding. The Peanut Butter Pie was good but not exceptional. I wish the restaurant was a bit quieter as it was extremely difficult to have a conversation with my dinner companions.

Very salty food. Definitely not worth the money. The only thing my boyfriend and I actually liked was the sushi. Overall not the best experience for my boyfriend on his birthday.

Dining is awesome at Jeff Ruby's! Superior food, drink and service. Seated in bar area and noise was extreme at times. I had requested not to be seated there but I realize those things happen. Still had great time and totally enjoyed the evening.

Took my husband here for his retirement dinner. It was top notch, from the lushness of the Art Deco interior design to the impeccable service and outstanding food. We were treated like royalty by our server John and also got to meet the assistant manager. This is the way to go for a special occasion.

Always a good meal at Jeff Ruby's with outstanding service. The steak Collinsworth is one of my favorites. Crab bisque was quite good also. Such an extensive wine list!

The food was delicious! The wine selection was extensive. Shrimp cocktail is amazing there. I highly recommend their filet too. It’s fabulous! We love the band playing in the bar. Chandeliers and contemporary decor create an elegant atmosphere. This is our favorite restaurant.

My husband and I frequently chose Louisville for our date nights. We have been to a lot of high end restaurants including Ruth Chris and Riverhouse. Jeff Ruby’s is by far the most delicious meal we have had. We could get it all here....sushi, seafood, steak, and nothing disappointed. Will definitely go back. The Brussel sprouts, macaroni, sushi, steaks, cocktails were all fabulous.

We try and get to Jeff Ruby’s 3-4 times a year and always have a great time. This last experience was a little tougher than normal because our service was off; drinks were messed up, orders were entered incorrectly and I felt as if our meal was rushed. We were barely a third of the way into our appetizers/salads when the main course came out. Our server apologized, but it was done. This won’t stop me from coming back because the energy of the place is awesome, the food is amazing and we always walk away happy.

The petit filet I ordered was perfectly seasoned and my fellow diner remarked his was perfectly seasoned as well. The strip steaks were generously sized. The brussels sprouts were perfect - not drowned in sauce as I've had at other establishments in town. The fries weren't quite what I'd describe as sharing size but all the other sides were definitely large enough to share. The peanut butter dessert is by itself worth a return visit. The only odd thing was that we were seated in the bar at a table that was a strange mix of bar height seats and a banquette so two of the guys towered over the table.
