I have to give this place credit for managing to create an interesting, original atmosphere and serving great food while being part of a chain. For my money, I'll take this Jeff Ruby's location over the Louisville location of Morton's any day.

This may just be one of the best restaurants I have ever experienced. The atmosphere is electric and the service is absolutely first class. But the steaks are the the star attractions. Like other reviewers have said, the bone-in filet was the best steak I have ever had. You are not going to go wrong at Jeff Ruby's.

We went to celebrate a birthday and, as usual, were not disappointed. The steak was delicious and so was the brandy Alexander. Great atmosphere too!

This is a great restaurant located in the Galt Hotel. It is a great place to go before or after watching a Univ. Of Louisville basketball game. Fantastic selection of bourbons and delicious steaks. My wife got a shrimp cocktail with the biggest shrimp I've ever seen. Great atmosphere in the bar area. There was even someone playing piano on... More

Have been to Jeff Ruby's many, many times. The food is always amazing but the last few times there have been glitches in our service. One time I ordered the seafood special of the day and when our meals were brought to the table I received the wrong entree. The waiter told us that they had run out of the... More

I've been to Jeff Ruby's several times and have always experienced impeccable service and GREAT food. Everything from the cold seafood starters, the hot appetizers, the steaks, sides, and desserts have always been superb. It's pricey but you get what you pay for.

My employer recently held a dinner here for around 25 people. We used one of the private rooms. The service we received was top-notch. The food was equally impressive. My filet was tender, juicy, and delicious. My wife enjoyed the strip, but admitted later that she preferred my steak. Of the sides, I especially enjoyed the mashed potatoes, and my... More

This steak was one of the best of my life. You could eat it with a spoon. Fantastic service as well.
