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.

    Jeff Rubys is always top-notch. From the food to the service, to the vibe...its the best restaurant in town. We came for our anniversary and had an incredible time. The steak and fish were incredible, and the suggestions from the waitress for the wine was perfect. Will be back again!

    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!

    We visit Jeff Ruby's about once a year and it never lets me and my wife down. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is great especially when there is a band or piano player is playing. I do wish they would bring back the Hatchet/Tomahawk steak! Still all in all a very nice place to have dinner. The steaks are cooked to perfection!
