Hut 1, Hut 2, Duluth! Shula's America's Steak House Opening By the Arena at Gwinnett Center


After being the first to announce the opening of Shula's 347 Grill at the then Buckhead Hotel, Repeat Atlanta has learned that Shula's will open its signature "Shula's America's Steak House" within the upcoming Embassy Suites in Duluth. Despite the Atlanta Business Chronicle's reporting in this week's edition that it would be a second Shula's 347 Grill, we have confirmed it to be his namesake steakhouse instead. Breaking the mold of most metro area Embassy Suites, they will have Shula's steakhouse rather than Ruth's Chris Steakhouse which is in their Downtown and Buckhead properties. The hotel has yet to break ground, so an opening date is far from being announced. I'd expect for it to open mid-late 2010. Repeat Atlanta!

Sounds like a smart move on embassy suites part. who wants to eat ruth's chris? Not me. Over priced tastless steak. However, cant say that I have ever had Shula's...

I have eaten at Tampa Ruth's Chris and Shula's many times. Shula's is even more expensive than Ruth's Chris. Steaks are great, not better than Ruth's Chris, just a different preparation. Shula's is more geared toward pleasing the men. Customers are mostly men and it can get VERY noisy. The menu entrees are printed on a single football that is passed around the table. Huge portions and great service. Expect to spend $70+ per person with cocktails or wine.
