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.

This restaurant never disappoints! If you love a great live band make your reservations for the bar area! The live music is amazing! The food is amazing. Becky was our personal server in Nashville and made our night even better!!! We have been to two of the Jeff Ruby locations and hope to make it to all of them for their individual nuances. Well done!

I took my son here before going to see Double Dare Live at TPAC. He is 7 years old and loves steak. Fortunately, there is a children’s menu with an 8 oz. filet. Overall, this was truly a 5 star experience.

I didn’t see a dress code on the website. It seems most people are business casual but there doesn’t seem to be an enforced dress code.

Made reservations for my boyfriends birthday. Jeff Ruby's made it an awesome night to remember starting with signature cocktails made by a very friendly and informative bartender! Our meal began with very tasty appetizers followed by an excellent steak entree. After our dinner, the birthday man was surprised by our server with a delicious slice of cheesecake with caramel! Perfect start to our birthday celebration! It was our first but definitely not our last visit! Looking forward to the next chance to visit Jeff Ruby's!

Great food, excellent ,fast service and a fun atmosphere! I loved how the waiters in white coats escort the ladies to the restroom. They come right over put out their arm to escort you. What a nice touch! We went with a group of 4 couples and it was a great time! The server was upbeat, super friendly and very accommodating. The food was great but it is expensive however worth it! The live music was good too! They had a piano player when we were there. Definitely would like to go back if ever in Nashville again.

A beautiful bar and restaurant!
The customer service was impeccable.
The food was very good but the pork belly was the worst I’ve ever had. It was 2” x 2” chunks of pure fat - very disappointing and difficult to eat. Every other pork belly I’ve eaten had at least 50% meat.
Otherwise, it was a perfect evening.

Every part of our dining experience from the server to the food was amazing. Even the restroom decor was something to see. This restaurant was very unique and had a great decor and ambiance.
The seafood appetizer was awesome and the fillet was cooked to perfection and the flavor had to be one of the top two that I have ever eaten.
This was a wonderful night for us and our diner guests. One that I won't forget.

This place was just fine, but honestly if you’ve ever been to a nice restaurant you wouldn’t be overwhelmed by this place. It’s just fine, but much too expensive for what it’s worth. No real complaints, just an average experience with a way above average bill.

We went to Jeff Ruby's for appetizers and drinks prior to TPAC. I made a reservation on Open Table and noted that we were not coming for a full meal and the bar area would be fine. We were told that the bar is first come first serve and that the tables around the bar were indeed reserved, but we did not understand why we were not seated at one of the many high tops around the bar. Appetizers are large and can easily be split with several people and the calamari we had was excellent. We also split a burger plate and again it was excellent and with the fries can easily serve two. While the food and service are top notch, I still feel the prices are on the high side and yes it is to be expected. I will say that the wines by the glass offer some good wines at reasonable prices.
