Shula's Steak House is ranked among North America's top ten steakhouses. Since 1989, our custom center cuts of Premium Black Angus Beef accompanied by our aging process have made up the award winning SHULA CUTS, the best beef money can buy. Each restaurant is themed after the 1972 Miami Dolphins' "Perfect Season" - the only team in NFL history to finish a season undefeated. At Shula's Steak Houses, one of the featured entrees is the 48 oz Porterhouse. Those who finish it join Shula's 48-Ounce Club, which currently has more than 34,000 members. In addition to exceptional steaks, Shula's offers fresh seafood, lamb and daily chop specials. We also offer an award-winning wine list featuring a variety of selections to make your dining experience a perfect one. Conveniently located in the heart of Tampa's West Shore district inside the InterContinental Tampa Hotel.

Shulas Steak House in Tampa continues to be a consistent source of fine dining. Attention to detail is everywhere from the moment you enter the restaurant until you leave. The food is excellent, the wait staff is knowledgeable and depending on your reason for dining it works well for business, pleasure or family meals. Not many restaurants can say that... More

Food is ok....not great. Have eaten there for brunch and dinner. It is convenient and never busy....can always get a table. Service is ok. Ambience is ok. Weekend buffet is very average. Price greatly exceeds quality of the experience. For the price it is really below average.

Definitely one of the best steaks in Tampa! We had a nice evening out and both enjoyed different cuts--with both choices being superb. The ambiance was great and peaceful, the food exquisite, and the service was as good as one could ever possibly wish. Located in the Intercontinental Hotel not too far from the Tampa Intl Airport, Shula's is such... More

One of my two favorite Steakhouses in Tampa (Malios being the other)! Nice to check into the Intercontinental Hotel and then simply take the elevator back down to this great venue. If you like steak you will like Shula's but hold on to your wallet, for the two of us the tab was nearly $200 with only two glasses of... More

I came here on a business trip with my husband and was pretty much on my own during our stay. So while he was out on business dinners, I decided to order from Shula's because it was basically my only option unless I wanted to walk ALONE in this huge town, for me anyway, I'm from Arkansas. The first time... More

The food was perfect as was the service, The lighting was a little too low for my taste but that is a personal preference. Three adults shared the 48oz with three sides, mashed potatoes, asparagus, and something else. The pre-order mouse was yummy and the key-lime pie was a hit!!

We ordered the six oz black Angus ribeye, grilled corn, asparagus, and potatoes gratin. For desert we had apple cobbler. Our first-bite comment? "Outstanding!" The tender steaks could be cut with a fork and the flavor was amazingly delicious. The accompanying grilled vegetables were very fresh and tasty. Plus, the dessert of apple cobbler was the perfect ending to a... More

We were staying at the Intercontinental and decided to eat at Shula's with my parents and nephew. Filet mignon x 3 and the cowboy ribeye. 1 filet cooked close to request. Others overcooked. Rare to medium rare does not mean dusky pink. Oh, and food was not hot. When I said something to the manager when he asked how our... More

Shula's Steakhouse in downtown Tampa was one of the best steakhouses we have been to in this area. I would compare it to Bern's. We were celebrating our anniversary. They put a little brass sign on our table that said Happy Anniversary. After dinner they brought us a complementary chocolate cake. The steaks were excellent. The service was excellent.
