Steakhouse
The flagship brand of his growing, family of eponymous eateries, Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse tells the story of his life. From the opulent interiors to the artwork & antique furnishings to the sign on the original Cincinnati location that reads “Since 1948” (the year Ruby was born), every facet has a special meaning to the man himself. Now open in Nashville, TN, each iteration of these critically-acclaimed restaurants is rooted in the heritage of the original, yet each also tells a tale of its own, inextricably woven into the unique fabric of the community in which it resides. The most noteworthy element of the brand – and undeniably the key to its success – is The Jeff Ruby Experience, an all-encompassing philosophy embodying the very best U.S.D.A. Steaks, Fresh Seafood, Impeccable Service, Live Entertainment and Passionate Attention To Detail. These qualities and more create a total dining experience unlike any other. An experience we’re proud to bring to the great city of Nashville.

Went for our Anniversary. Food was Spectacular. Cannot say We’ve had a better steak (“barrel cut” filet) anywhere. Lobster and steak sushi roll (“GodfatherRoll”) was delightful and delicious. We loved the decor as well. If you get a chance to go, do it.

Our go to for date night. In my opinion the best steak in Nashville. Wife says The Godfather roll is the best thing she has ever eaten. Truffle butter with the bread is awesome. Don’t laugh but the Mac and cheese is awesome. Everything we have ever tried is top notch. Ricotta donuts, Jack Daniels Chocolate cake are our favorite desserts.

We celebrated my 47th birthday at my favorite restaurant! My husband knows without a doubt the one meal that makes me salivate....Jeff Ruby’s steamed crab legs followed by the fabulous Creme Brûlée....it doesn’t get much better than this, unless you add a filet mignon! Jeff Ruby’s you did not disappoint! ♥️

We reserved a party of 5 and ended up with 4 people. They sat us at a small table for 4. There was very little room. Our dining area was off to one side and away from the live music, but it had other music in the room that was competing with the live music. The steak was not as good as Bob's but the seafood was delicious. For $600, the steak could have been better, we could have had a better table, music was a mess, but the wait staff was top notch.

Our steaks were aged and prepared to perfection. We started our dinner with the Wedge Salad, it was delicious. The Brussels Sprouts are fabulous. The meal was second to none in this city. Absolutely amazing! The steaks were so tender. The service and ambiance is truly spectacular. I can’t wait to go back!

PS. The Carrot Cake is the best I’ve ever tasted. Sooo good!

We had a table of 6 for my wife’s birthday. 5 people from the group had never experienced a Jeff Ruby restaurant. Everyone was blown away with the meal, service and overall experience. Thank you to the entire staff as you now have 6 individuals who can’t wait to for another opportunity to experience a night like this again.

Went to JR’s with friends. Had been once before and it was fabulous. Scallops and sides were great, as usual. Filet steak was just average. Not nearly as good as first visit. For $300 it needs to be fabulous every time. We will go back.

My Porterhouee steak was ordered rare, but was cooked medium. My guest ordered two drinks of Jim Beam Black and was charged an extra $2.00 per drink for ice! This was not on the drink price list that he could find. The men's room should be checked more frequently as a customer had become sick in the lavatory and the results were not cleaned up for the entire time that I used the facility.

Great meal beginning to end. Our waiter Sam made our experience special beyond great food and wine. Art Deco decor and live music create a lively and fun atmosphere. Manager also made a special effort to make sure our meal and experience was enjoyable.

Second time here. The variety of food steak to sushi on the menu is great and the service on a busy Saturday night was excellent.

Will certainly go back when in Nashville again

Donovan who was our server did a fantastic job. Management came out to check on us and was able to fix my steak that was still a little too rare but was very on point. Ambiance was very nice and sat in a perfect place.

I have had incredible dining experiences all over the world...and this will no doubt rank in the TOP 5!! Chef went kind of "off menu" and made us a platter of great entrees all sliced for 5 of us. Wine list is great, ambiance is great! So glad we picked this place above all others in Nashville and will be back again!

We were celebrating our anniversary. Had reservation for 8:00. We arrived 10 min early. The restaurant was jam packed and very noisy. Good energy though. We were shown our table right on time. Our server Bo was excellent. We were excited about the menu. We ordered drinks and sushi. Unfortunately the table right next to us had five women and two men sitting at it. They were completely obnoxious. The women were talking at the top of the voices trying to be heard above everyone else. We hoped it would calm down. We endured this for about 30 min. I finally asked if we could be moved. The server was awesome. Apologetic and had noticed the same from the table. They found us a table in the bar area. The band was playing and the place was packed but still better than the main dining area for noise. Our new server was good but completely distracted serving drinks in then bar area. So service for the rest of the night was barely average. I had the strip steak and my wife had the filet. The filet was great. The strip steak was cooke medium but extremely I’ve seasoned with the house seasoning. Heavy garlic and salt. Could not hardly taste the steak. For a $55 dollar steak it was very underwhelming. Overall we were not that impressed with the experience and for the money there are many better choices in Nashville.

This was our second time and it was disappointing. We were sat in the side room, table appeared to be a card table with cloth on it. The noise from the piano player made conversation almost impossible. The service started out well but basically disappeared halfway through dinner. One of our steaks was undercooked by quite a bit, they recooked the same piece of meat and returned it to the table. The Brussel sprouts were burnt to a crisp. The price point was way past the experience. Be a while before we go back.

We went to Jeff Ruby's for our anniversary for the 2nd year in a row. We couldn't ask for a better dinner! Nicholas did a fantastic job and really made it a special evening. We will definitely be back and will ask for Nicholas.
