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.

My husband's bone in steak had a lot of grissel. We have eaten at Jeff Ruby's several times before and were always pleased with food, service, ambiance, and all. This time, the food was not up to par and the noise level seemed higher than usual.

An amazing place to come together. Our server Steven had great suggestions on what to eat as well as great alcohol drinks. My favorite drink was the kiss of four. This is not just a business but more like a family restaurant. If my memory serves me best I remember him telling us that Mr. Ruby is passing his restaurants down to his kids and they are pursuing it through and through. His restaurant in Nashville, TN looks like a unique authentic palace with endless memories.

After reading reviews on all the steak houses and comparing the menus for days I finally landed on Jeff Rubys for my wife and I's Anniversary dinner while we were in Nashville and I have no complaints! The service was outstanding, we got congratulated on our anniversary by at least 5 people working there and received a free cheesecake slice after our meal. The meal it self was amazing, my wife ordered the New York Strip and I ordered the Dry Aged Cowboy and they were both fantastic! The atmosphere was amazing also, the piano player was not too loud and we could easily hold a conversation while listening to him play. I will definitely be returning the next time we are in town!

Excellent service. Friendly staff. We felt so welcomed. If this is your first time visiting, ask the staff about the resturant. They are very knowledgeable. Absolutely enjoyed ourselves.
This trip we learned more about the history of this location as well as other locations and owner. This is hands down our favorite date night restaurant.

Overall meal was good. We had a good level of service.

The next night we went to Bourbons which was hands-down so much better all around.

I did not realize that Ruby’s left a bit to be desired until dining elsewhere in Nashville The steaks were a little tough and not as flavorful. It no so much as to complain. Sides weren’t very good. Potatos and Brussels sprouts poor.

But restaurant is nice and still acceptable and would probably go back if dining multiple nights. Ask for the red room. It was quite a bit quieter.

Being from Scottsdale, Arizona, we have some pretty amazing steak restaurants. I chose Jeff Ruby's steakhouse for a special dinner spot for mine and my fiance's bachelor/bachelorette party because of the reviews from multiple sites as well as it being ranked as one of the best steakhouses in Nashville. I purposefully made our reservation months ahead of time because we were a group of 27 people. Due to our large number, we were told that we would not all be able to sit together, but we would be broken up into three tables and would be in the same vicinity. When we finally arrived, we were scattered all throughout the restaurant. This was annoying, since we were told that we could be accommodated. The service throughout the entire meal was also very slow, but our servers themselves were all very nice and polite. The food was exceptional, but it was not my favorite steak that I had ever tired. The manager came up and congratulated us at the end, which was also very polite, and even escorted all of us to a nearby club. Overall, I would say our experience was alright and I am not yearning to go back the next time we are in Nashville.

We visited Jeff Ruby's during our recent trip to Nashville to celebrate two birthdays. The team at Jeff Ruby's went above and beyond to ensure the birthday guests felt appreciated. The food was excellent, the waitstaff personable and attentive, and the decor was beautiful. We cannot recommend Jeff Ruby's enough!

We had an amazing dining experience. We started the evening with Shrimp Cocktail, the Wedge Salad , my husband ordered a Caesar Salad. All outstanding. The prawns were absolutely the largest I’ve ever been served.. anywhere. Our steaks were aged and prepared to perfection. I have to say, the service at Jeff Ruby is second to none. They really have a standard of excellence that is like no other in the city of Nashville. Oh, did I mention the ambiance? Exquisite. Overall we were pleasantly surprised by what we found at Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse and we definitely plan to go again soon.
