Description: Shula’s Steak House is the classic American steakhouse: a fine dining white tablecloth restaurant. In order to be the best steak house, Don Shula followed the same principles that made him the winningest coach in football history - select the best talent available and give them the resources they need to succeed. In the restaurant business, that meant serving Premium Black Angus Beef® steaks, the best beef money can buy and providing our restaurant team with the best training. In terms of our restaurant team, he ran it like a sports team. In sports, one's performance is based on results - either you win or lose. The same is true for our restaurant team. Our managers are called Head Coaches and they have the authority to manage the team as they see fit to ensure repeated winning seasons. Our custom center cuts of Premium Black Angus Beef® steaks accompanied with our aging process make up our award winning SHULA CUT ® , the best beef money can buy. Our custom cuts and aging process are the highest in the industry. You won't find a better steak anywhere. Our restaurant is themed after the 1972 Miami Dolphins' "Perfect Season" - the only team in NFL history to finish a season undefeated. The menus are hand painted on an official NFL game football. At Shula's Steak Houses, one of the featured entrees is the 48-Ounce Porterhouse. Those who finish it join Shula's 48-Ounce Club, which currently has more than 26,000 members. I invite you to experience Shula's Steak House, where we only offer the biggest and the best. Shula’s Steak House Birmingham is a proud recipient of Wine Spectator’s 2011 Award of Excellence. With over 150 wines in our collection and a knowledgeable staff, we can help you select the perfect pairing to compliment your meal.

When we have a craving for great steak, we head to Shula's Steak House. Big portions on the beef and sides. Our favorite steak is the bone in filet mignon, and enjoy the grilled asparagus and wedge salad. We usually over indulge in the sour dough bread. The wine list is fun and extensive. On our last trip we met the manager Starla and she was very friendly. Matthew at the bar was very attentive and our server Greg was very professional. Look forward to returning soon.

Went to Shula's for a lunch while attending a conference, service was good and the food quality was okay. Portions were small and their balsamic vinaigrette had what appeared to be Cheyenne pepper floating on top which set my mouth on fire. Otherwise a good lunch.

I walked in to the bar area on a Wednesday night. It was completely empty. I now know why. Asked the bar tender why it was so empty - he respond - what do you want to drink. I asked if rebranding of hotel had affected them. "no". Asked for two beers and two menus. Got two beers. Asked for menus again. He went to straightening beers in refrigerator and folding up 6 pack cartons. Asked for our tab - he picked up a pen and tapped on the booklet on the drink rail. I walked out and talked to the hostess who offered to seat us in the restaurant area. I declined and went and spent $350 on a meal at Metro Prime. Won;t be back.

We were promptly seated at our reservation time. Staff was very attentive and accommodating! Appetizers were great as always. Steaks and sides were way more than we could eat! We all shared! Dessert.....there are no words to describe....DELICIOUS! You must try the Molten Lava Cake & the Chocolate Souffle!!!!!!!
A wonderful dinner!

Went for our Anniversary.
The food was second to none. The service matched the quality of the food.The prices are quite expensive, but you get what you pay for.
Would love to go again for a special occasion.
