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, & of course Jeff Ruby's secret recipe cheesecake are all staples of the Louisville menu.
Styled after the great NY steakhouses of the 1930s & '40s, 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 are featured in the Starz series Magic City and the 32-foot wall of wine.

    Can always count on Ruby’s for impeccable service and a nice dining experience. Ordered wedge salad, salmon and brussels sprouts. The salmon was perfectly cooked. The only disappointment was the brussel sprouts which were a bit too chewy.

    Excellent food and the service is absolutely top notch. And that is everytime you dine there. Consistency is something doesn't always get recognized and I don't ever remember dining at Jeff Ruby's when the service was not the absolute best. The experience is great whether it be for a family, friend or business dinner.

    This most recent JR’s experience was fine. The food was good and the service was excellent. Overall, I give the experience a 7 mainly because there are better options in Louisville for the price. JR’s was a favorite when we were younger and just dipping our toes into fine dining but since experiencing other options in the area and while traveling, JR’s has lost it’s spot in the top 5-10 list for us. The ambiance is still wonderful but the food is just ok for the price.

    We love Jeff Ruby’s and every time we go it’s even better. Our server Jade was fantastic, knowledgeable about the menu and we never felt rushed. The pianist was amazing and played all our requests. We sat in the bar area for the first time and actually enjoyed it more than regular seating. It was my husband’s birthday and they made it extra special. Thanks Jeff Ruby’s!
