THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Shula's Steak House Restaurant Review

: As expected at restaurants bearing the name of Don Shula, longtime coach of the Miami Dolphins, the décor is darkly masculine, with football photos on the walls and without flowers on the tables. The regular menu is printed on a football. Servers present raw steak cuts to illustrate the relative differences among 12-, 24- and 48-ounce servings. Emphasis is on the hardy stuff, such as Angus beef (go for the aged), with a couple of fish choices thrown in for the beef-phobic. Most popular with the more macho meat-eaters is the porterhouse. Oysters come plump and fresh on the half-shell. Ordered à la carte, salads are chock-full of ultra-thick slices of tomatoes and we enjoyed them much more than the less-impressive vegetable side dishes we ordered. The excellent meat dishes, though, are the stars here---and with good reason. Also located at 5225 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-341-6500; 7601 NW 154th St., Miami Lakes, 305-820-8102; and 321 N. Atlantic Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, 954-355-4000.
