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.

Our dining experience was outstanding from beginning to end. The staff was very knowledgeable and not only knew the menu inside and out, but they also knew the origin of the ingredients as well. They went out of their way to make sure my wife felt special for her birthday and even brought out a complimentary slice of cheesecake at the end with "Happy Birthday" written on the plate. The staff also made sure to call us by name which made the dining experience feel very personal and intimate. The food was top notch and worthy of the expensive price tag. This is not your "every evening" type of restaurant due to the price, but we will definitely be back when we get the opportunity.

Amazing meal. Steak was incredible. Was able to cut it, easily, with just a fork. The quality of the food is on another level. Well done.

We experienced Great food and great service! It was our first time to eat at Jeff Ruby's but will definitely not be our last! Our waiter was excellent and gave good suggestions from the menu. It was mine and my wife's anniversary and they took really good care of us with a complimentary dessert for the occasion. We were both very impressed.

Overall good experience. I ordered the filet mignon crab bisque soup and mac n cheese. Steak was good but honestly I’ve had better at Fleming’s and even Texas Roundhouse. The Mac n cheese was okay very cheesy but not the best I’ve had the soup was amazing though!

This was the best dining experience my husband and I have ever had. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and the steak/sides were delicious. We loved the oysters and cocktails. We ended the night drinking cocktails and watching an amazing 6-person band at the bar. We can't wait to go back.

Service was exceptional - so were the steaks - everything else was average .
If you're looking for an amazing STEAK and don't mind paying for it - I would recommend this place.
The sides (grilled asparagus and creamed corn w/ truffle) were good (not great) however, the Mac n' cheese was phenomenal! Didn't love it but, we had a nice evening.

Without a doubt, the best steakhouse in Nashville. Possibly the best steakhouse in the south! Forget stuffy fine dining like Morton's and step into this energetic Vegas-style restaurant and enjoy an incredible culinary experience, and the best service Nashville has to offer. Seriously, don't miss stopping in here!

We have been to many steakhouses around the country and this place now ranks at the very top of our list. The service, atmosphere and food were all top notch. Our server Logan was outstanding. We will definitely return. Anyone going to Nashville should try to have dinner here.

We easily made reservations online through Open Table a couple of hours before for 4 women. We were celebrating our 50th birthday. We were greeted warmly by the Manager and seated at a comfy semi round booth with a perfect view of the beautiful bar. On top of the bar was a beautiful white piano and we enjoyed the light piano music throughout the evening. Our waiter, Ryan was wonderful. The food was delicious and was best steak we have ever eaten. To celebrate our special occasion, the wait staff brought us each the most delicious cheesecake drizzled with caramel, lit with a candle while singing Happy Birthday.
Great ambiance and watched a couple become engaged.

I have been here on about ten occasions in the past year and for the most part it has been great but this was not the case on this night.It all started at the bar with very poor service and when I got to my table it just got worse.When my waiter finally came to my table and gave me water I couldn’t get him back for about 10 minutes stopped his helper and asked to order he couldn’t take he spoke to someone they didn’t come to my table after about 15 more minutes my waiter came by and said sorry he was busy. Not one time after manager waking by about 10 times did he ever stop. When you go to upper scale place and pay what we pay to eat the service and the management should be better.

Always a pleasure to dine at Jeff Ruby’s! Such a treat filled with delicious flavors. Steaks to perfection! Salads crisp & full of wonderful ingredients. Let’s say the desserts are the bomb!!! Our waiter was very attentive but did not intrude. We were celebrating our daughters graduate school graduation. Our family had a private dining room. Very special! Highly recommend
