Why 5 Stars? I'll Tell You Why!

Okay, so I've dined at Jeff Ruby's a half-dozen times, and the food and service has consistently been very good. What I'd call a solid 4-star restaurant, if a bit pricey. But this time I tried something different on the menu, a steak so delicious it forced me to increase my rating to 5-stars. Yes... read more

We bought a special package - Groupon or some such. The price was reasonable for the package but the menu along with the wine list is normally quite pricey. We had a nice meal and we enjoyed the experience. I have to say that based quality and value, there are superior alternatives in Louisville. I'm glad we went and if... More

This is my go to restaurant for special occasions or guests in town. Always have a great meal with excellent service and love the atmosphere. The wine list is great but we love to find the wine expert from the team at Jeff Ruby's and give them a dollar range. They found many hidden gems on the menu throughout the... More

Upscale restaurant right in the heart of downtown. Nice contemporary atmosphere. Great service. Food is awesome. Steaks melt in your mouth. It's pricey but it is worth it. There is an elevated stage area near the bar and after the main dinner hour they have live music - why some reviewers probably say it's noisy. Great house band. Interactive. Lots... More

We went to Jeff Ruby's as a party of 8. They took us back immediately and they had no issues with our party size at all, and handled it wonderfully. I didn't really know what to expect going into dinner, so I was a little blown away by the noise. This place is LOUD. The live band plays on the... More

Had a dinner with clients and the food was so-so...had better steak at Texas Roadhouse. The seafood looked good..not really my thing, but I tried it anyways and ended up getting sick at home later on (maybe I am allergic to shellfish) the place is nice and a bit more fancy than what I am used to. The staff is... More

This is one of the best steakhouses anywhere in the U.S. It also has to be the LOUDEST I have ever seen! Impossible to have a normal conversation. Had to shout and even the server couldn't hear. Love the food. Hate the noise.
