    Hostess was not helpful or informative at all on sitting earlier than our scheduled time. Told us we would have to wait another 1 hour plus. Not until my wife walked in and saw all the empty tables at the bar and the server said “sure come on in” it’s open seating in here”. She was wonderful and accommodating. I like the robot at the podium who is literally co trolling the flow of your dining room… you should train better. Good and service once sat was top notch!

    Once again a wonderful dinner at Shula's. Ordered the 22oz ribeye and it was perfect, a long with a great blueberry martini. I also added the lobster tail which was the best lobster tail I ever had. Highly recommend if you have never been. It is a bit louder in the restaurant but the food is amazing.

    Absolutely loved our dining experience at Shula's. Be forewarned about the parking though. The Dolphin resort self park is pay by ticket and even though the restaurant will validate your ticket, trying to get out, at night and in the ever present Florida rain is a nightmare. The exit is not well lit and trying to read the machine is next to impossible. The paper tickets get wet and the machine becomes useless. The help button was broken in our lane so the car next to us, who was also having issues, had to tell the operator that we needed assistance as well. It's not a Shula's problem it's a hotel problem. But it created stress at the end of a really great dining experience.

    If you want dessert, order it right away. The kitchen got so backed up with desserts that it took too long and we had to cut our order. Very loud in restaurant in general. Food was excellent.

    Our server , Jerry , was less than attentive. This always hurts the overall experience. Our food, cold baked potato , was only average but the cost was $ 316. before tip. I did not want to give Jerry a tip , but his helper finally took over. Don’t remember his name , but finished taking care of us in Jerry’s absence. We have celebrated Valentines Day with Shula’s for the last 6 years and this was the first poor experience.

    For a steakhouse we were very disappointed with our steaks- they were very overcooked and didn’t not have great flavor. The appetizers were good but the portions were tiny. The sides were good but everyone else’s entrees were ok. Our drinks were not very good and lacked flavor. Our server was decent but he seemed rushed and he asked us about what we would like for desert - since a few of them take a while to prepare- but he probably asked us at least 3/4 times. I don’t think they need 3 desserts that require you to choose your dessert as soon as you sit down at the table. I would not return and would suggest saving your $$$ and eating at another restaurant at the hotel.

    Their specialty is beef 🥩 so that’s what they do best! Prime Ribs and a nice selection of steaks. The French Onion soup is great! Very large portions and it’s A La Carte! So share the sides…otherwise you’ll be wasting food and money. Very enjoyable meal and very filling! Love the atmosphere, especially great for 1972 Miami Dolphins fans! You know the last time they were really good… a great coach and men for football players who played as a Team. Anyway…pricey but good! Great service and staff! Will be back!

    It was absolutely horrible! From the reservation desk to the waiter to hold and horrible food to lack of service from the manager, it was overall horrible. We have been there many many times, and thought the food and the service was fantastic last night one of the worst dining experiences of my life.

    Poor quality meat. Had dinner twice. One with prime rib. Grizzly and tasteless. Next night with bone m-in rib eye. Terrible piece of meat. They need to figure out what great meat tastes like. This wasn’t a chef cooking problem but a meat supplier issue.

    If I could give a higher rating I would. Our dining experience was simply terrific!!! Everything was top shelf. The dry aged, prime, cowboy ribeye was the best I have ever tasted! It was large enough to share. The flavor was so rich and satisfying. Our Stonestreet Cab was yummy and added to the full dining experience. The service was perfect and everyone was so friendly and attentive. It was a remarkable evening! OUTSTANDING!

    Tomahawk steak was much smaller than the advertised 42 oz. We asked for medium and it was medium rare through the middle and didn’t come out hot. Average steak at best, service and food did not warrant that price.

    I had an above average dining experience at Shula’s. Perhaps if I ordered a steak it would have been a better experience. I got the Caesar salad, which was good, but the plate it was on was too small, and when I cut into it, pieces would fall off the plate. Very annoying. The bread service was great. Warm bread, crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. Honestly this was the best part of the meal. For my entree I ordered swordfish with a beurre blanc. The beurre blanc was outstanding, and the size of the swordfish generous, but it was overcooked, which was very disappointing.

    It was our first time dining here. My tenderloin and husband’s sirloin strip steak were both of the highest quality and cooked exactly to our liking. The meat was tender, flavorful and seasoned perfectly. Portion sizes were generous. The courses were served at a comfortable pace and we never felt rushed. We shared a wonderful chocolate soufflé for dessert. Each waiter who came to our table wished us a happy anniversary, which was a nice touch. We look forward to returning when we’re in the area again.

    Very low quality meat. Service was good other than the waiter wiping a piece of food off of what was supposed to be a clean dish that he was placing on my table with his finger. I asked for a new one no big deal. The meat was very poor quality.
