Dinner tonight was my introduction to bourbon. Our server Mary explained to me some of the characteristics and suggested a bourbon cocktail as my introduction which was served over a ice ball. Without asking she later served me two small samples of other types of bourbon so I could experience the difference in taste. It's amazing how a good server... More

Great location, friendly and knowledgable staff. Steaks are dry aged with great flavor, mac and cheese is amazing; however, be ready to spend a lot, at least $100 per person (likely more). It was very crowded but there were no issues with waiting, just make sure to make reservations. While this is not the greatest steak I have ever had,... More

Spectacular from the moment you walk in the door. The most attentive staff you will ever encounter. The atmosphere is very enjoyable and the food is outstanding. Definately not cheap. We always plan our stay in Louisville around a dinner at Jeff Rubys. Go and enjoy

A great place from top to bottom. We have been here several times and tried many things on the menu. From the atmosphere to the food you will not be disappointed. Try the Freddy salad any steak and leave room for dessert.

Although the service was impeccable, thanks to Jeff H our waiter, the food is less than desirable. In this age of "farm to table" Jeff Ruby's should take a lesson from our local chefs and serve fresh, delicious food. Nothing at Jeff Ruby's was something I would go back to try again. Frozen vegetables, no seasoning and cold entrees do... More

While in Louisville visiting family we went here for dinner on a Saturday night. The decor is lovely, the staff is 100% attentive and friendly and the food was outstanding. Hands down one of the best meals we have had in a restaurant. Would highly recommend.

The steak are amazing, lobster mac and cheese is the bomb and the best damn dirty martini in Louisville. Trust me I've done the leg work. The sushi is excellent and the atmosphere is one of the main reasons I love this restaurant.

This is the "it" place in town. Old school steakhouse that is lively and fun. Bar gets busy and difficult to get a drink. Saw Rick Patino here on my last visit. If you like a good steak go here. A great steak, Gibsons in Chicago.
