Jeff Ruby's Precinct has been a go-to spot for steak in Cincinnati since it opened in 1981. Ruby opened the Precinct with celebrity backers, and celebrities and professional athletes have been flocking there ever since. The lobby walls are covered with photos of Ruby posing with them. The rest of the building is decorated with police memorabilia which pays tribute to the turn-of-the-century building's original purpose as a Patrol House for Cincinnati's Mounted Patrol. Just like his other restaurants, Jeff Ruby's Precinct specializes in steaks (that come with salad and potatoes), but shellfish is also popular. The menu also offers fish, chicken and pork tenderloin. Additional sides to share are also offered, including baked macaroni and cheese made with six imported cheeses. Servers are very attentive. The Precinct is a white tablecloth restaurant with business casual attire. The attached bar serves the same menu, but is more casual. Reservations are recommended for both.
- Best Restaurants: "Try the popular Collinsworth Topping, named after the former Cincinnati Bengal player and sportscaster Cris Collinsworth. It can be added to any steak and consists of Bordelaise and Béarnaise sauces, King Crab and Asparagus."
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: Jeff Ruby's Precinct has stood the test of time as Cincinnati's longest running white tablecloth restaurant and has received numerous awards.
