About the restaurant
The first & only steakhouse of its kind in the Louisville area, Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse serves only dry-aged USDA prime beef. While steak is the foundation of the menu, Jeff Ruby's promises to please seafood lovers as well with its raw/sushi bar & seafood entrees.
Jeff Ruby regulars will be pleased to know that their favorite signature items from the Cincinnati restaurants will be well represented in Louisville. The bone-in filet, the 7 cheese baked macaroni, creamed spinach, truffle flake, & of course Jeff Ruby's secret recipe cheesecake are all staples of the Louisville menu.
Styled after the great NY steakhouses of the 1930s & '40s, Jeff Ruby's promises to be as pleasing visually as it is to the palate. French art-deco design, plush mohair upholstery, hand-selected antique furniture, and cinematic crystal chandeliers anchored by a 1950s-era antique are featured in the Starz series Magic City and the 32-foot wall of wine.

My wife and I have eaten at Jeff Ruby's a few times when visiting Lexington and had a delightful experience Tuesday evening. Our server, Elaina, was excellent. She was attentive without being intrusive, knew the menu completely and had a great personality and disposition. No doubt she made our night. The food as always was excellent. We chose to sit in the outside area. The restaurant was busy though noise is not overwhelming as it is at many restaurants when they are nearly full. A wonderful experience made complete by Elaina with her perfect service.

Chef Rodney is excellent and I had the Wedge and the pork shoulder which was quite good. Erika did a super job with a Four Roses Manhattan.

About the restaurant
Repeal is Whiskey Row’s only oak-fired steakhouse, located at the birthplace of J.T.S. Brown & Sons Bourbon Company in Louisville. A stylish departure from a traditional steakhouse, Repeal uses a wood-fired grill stoked daily with reclaimed American Oak bourbon barrels. Repeal is a tribute to the Repeal of Prohibition – a place to see, be seen and celebrate the rich tradition of the building in which it resides.

Now serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.

There is a reason that Repeal took over Jeff Rubys #1 spot for fine dining steakhouses. I came in for my wife’s birthday and she ordered 8 ounces of the Japanese A5 Wagyu filet and it was the best steak she has ever had! The steak rub w being cooked over an oak-fired grill made the best flavor combo ever! You MUST order it! The bacon mac was what put the sides over the top! I had the bone-in ribeye and my starter was the raw bar! I couldn’t have had a better meal if they tried. The service was impeccable! Josh Board and Elena made an outstanding duo, never missing a beat! He is a sommelier and can field most any question and knows his bourbons too. The huge selection of rare bourbons was stunning! We had the chance to visit the kitchen and Chef Uli Hernandez is the man! I will forever visit Repeal for the most amazing food and service!
