Jeff Ruby Biography

Jeff Ruby, after graduating from Cornell and having spent significant time in his mother’s and stepfather’s
restaurants along the Jersey shore, came to Cincinnati, Ohio, looking to establish an absolutely incomparable
dining experience. After a very successful stint creating exceptional experiences in the Cincinnati hospitality
scene, his friends, Johnny Bench and Pete Rose, became his partners backing his first steakhouse, The Precinct, in 1981.

Today, Ruby’s five eateries in three states are a favorite of numerous national legendary sports figures, musical performers and television and radio personalities. Local celebrities and foodies get in on the action as well. This is a testament to the great food and service here as these celebrities have dined at the finest restaurants worldwide and return to Jeff Ruby’s every year.
