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.

Food, service and atmosphere is great. It's pricey compared to other nice restaurants in town, but for a special occasion it never disappoints.

My husband got the ribeye and it was delicious. I however ordered the Sea Bass. It was not as delicious. It seemed a little tough. The king crab mixture that the fish was served with was not what I excepted. I would not order the Sea Bass again but would certainly recommend the steak.

Wonderful graduation celebration for our son. two of us split the cowboy steak because we wanted ribeye but it’s a large (22 oz!) piece of meat! Our server suggested it, glad he did, was perfect for two to share. Service was very nice.

Another wonderful experience at one of the best restaurants in louisville. Our server was attentive and honest with suggestions... I can not recall his name but he’s taken care of us before and remembered us! The wagyu, mac and cheese and mashed potatoes are always perfect. We look forward to our next visit!!

Came for my girlfriend’s birthday and sat in the bar area. As usual, Ruby’s did not disappoint. We split the Ruby Roll for appetizer, each had a perfectly cooked filet for dinner, split the creme brûlée for dessert, and had a nice glass of port with it. Old Fashioned’s are the best in the city in my opinion. Live music was absolutely bomb along with the service. No rush to get you in and out at Ruby’s. For a special occasion or fun weeknight meal I still think this is one of the best places in Louisville.

We were in Louisville on a bourbon tour and organized a dinner at Jack Ruby's. What a good choice. Cool place with interesting history and great deco. We had some of the best steaks we've had anywhere and still talked about how good they were the next day. I've had steaks all over the world and this was in the top 5. Great choice if you can get a reservation, you won't be disappointed.

Since we moved to Kentucky, this has been our favorite steakhouse. The service is fantastic. The steaks are to die for, especially their waygu. We even ordered curbside during the pandemic. Sadly we are moving again, and we will miss this restaurant.

Celebrating an anniversary, new job, promotion, graduation, birthday, or a great night out? Jeff Ruby's will make you feel like a million $$$.

The attention to detail and responsive service makes you feel incredible and puts other food experiences to shame.

We started with a seafood appetizer king crab leg, shrimp, and an oyster. The oyster was incredibly fresh and the shrimp and king crab leg were excellent. Our entree was the strip with mashed potatoes and mushrooms. The steak was perfect and the appetizers especially the mushrooms were great.

We are from Cincinnati and normally go to Carlo and Johnny's or the Precinct. The food in Louisville was as good as we have ever had and it was better than some of our visits to the Precinct and even Carlo and Johnny's.

Highly recommended.

Reservation was at 8:30PM, I was expecting the food quality to be the same as if someone was dining in earlier
Our steaks were burnt/charred but still pink on the inside. (Not cooked to the temp we wanted). Due to it being 30 mins prior to close we kept our food to be curtesy to the the kitchen staff.

We ate here prior to seeing my son off to the Air Force, so it was a celebration with some sorrow that he would be leaving for some time. Our server was outstanding, the food was primo as in the prime beef they serve. There is not a better restaurant in Louisville.

Jeff Ruby's never disappoints! We were celebrating birthdays - mine and my son's...

This was the 10th anniversary for us celebrating my son's 16th birthday there...and every time they make it unforgetable.

On his 16th birthday the valet pulled my son's birthday car up as we left...what a wonderful way to surprise him...

This year, my son and his wife are expecting and not only did we get a fabulous birthday treat to top off our dinner, but they got the cutest onesie and bib for our soon to be "carnivore in training".

Thank you for always making it special! The little touches made the night!

It was the first time either of us had been there, and it could not have been a better experience! I always believe that my company is the best part of every visit, and that was still true, but this was the best dining experience we have had in a few years.
