We were visiting Gainesville from out of town and chose this restaurant for a birthday celebration. So glad we did! Both of us ordered the Filet Mignon which was seasoned and cooked to perfection. We shared two family style sides, sautéed mushrooms to supplement the filet and the truffle risotto which were delicious. Our waitress was very friendly and entertaining which added to the experience. Don’t pass up dessert! We couldn’t decide on what to order so we tried the dessert trio sampler which are mini versions of three of their desserts. The cheesecake, chocolate paradise, and bread pudding were amazing!

I got the lamb porterhouse loins with fingerling potatoes and mint curry sauce. The lamb loins were chewy but tasted fine. The sauce was fabulous! It made the whole meal! If I could've I would've bought a jar of the sauce to take home. I really like lamb but I've decided that unless it's slices off of a lamb roast I won't be getting it at restaurants anymore as I've been unlucky at finding tender lamb loins. My husband had the scallops over saffron rice and he said it was fine. The General Manager was very friendly and helped to guide us on some wine choices. The ambience was elegant.

We celebrated my sisters birthday. I arrived a little bit early and mentioned to our waiter Eric, that we were celebrating her birthday and he said he would do something special. We ordered 2 appetizers for a party of 3, the crispy onion fritters, and the pow pow shrimp. They were both outstanding, but the Onion Fritters are much better than a bloomin onion. We had 3 different entrees, all with special requests such as francese sauce on the side, or adding demi sauce to the fried chicken steak and replacing the potatoes with parmesan risotto. Each order was perfect and delicious with enough leftovers to take home for lunch the next day. The Birthday girl was surprised when Eric brought out her desert and Happy Birthday was written on the plate with chocolate syrup. Eric is the consummate professional. We talked during dinner how restaurant customer service is a dying art. We suggested Eric hold class to teach what real customer service is.

About the restaurant
The Shula's Story
Established in 1989, Shula's Steak House started with one goal in mind - to carry on the legacy of Coach Don Shula, one of the greatest coaches in NFL history. 30 years later, we've taken that goal and run with it. We're proud to offer the highest quality steaks, fresh-caught seafood, and tantalizing sides.

Inspired by Coach
Winners are a different breed. Winners work hard, winners value the small details, and winners never cut corners.
When Coach Don Shula opened the first Shula's Steak House in 1989, he took his winning formula to a whole new level. He wanted to provide the highest quality steaks in a warm, inviting setting. There's an ethos to excellence - it doesn't matter if you're coaching an undefeated football team, or grilling up a porterhouse - we make sure we live by it.

Drinks, wine, steaks were great. One of the apps we ordered was calamari, it was terrible and undercooked. We should gave sent it back but we just picked at it instead. Desserts were super also.

We enjoyed the Chef’s Table experience. The food was simply outstanding. The staff was knowledgeable and attentive. Our sous chef, Mario, carefully explained everything we were served and how it was prepared. We had more food than we could eat so we are enjoying it today. The wines served were also very good. This was a great experience and we will do it again.
