Prompt, friendly service (which continued to be attentive for the rest of the night) brought us fresh hot buns while we enjoyed our wine. Choice of soup or salad followed... ample salad. The prime rib and New York Striploin were both excellent, as were the baked potatoes, loaded with as much sour cream, bacon and green onions as you want.... More

After a day of meetings we were in downtown Winnipeg and looking for a good steak dinner. One of our group said let's go over to The Charter House and check out The Rib Room. None of us had been there in years and we were not even sure if it was still open. A quick check on the iPhone... More

After readng all the great reviews, my husband and I were expecting a great meal before a concert on Friday. Unfortunately, it was only average. After being seated by the maitre'd we waited about 10 minutes before our waiter came to take our drink orders. The restaurant was not busy. After bringing our drinks and a basket of bread, he...

My wife and I went to the Rib Room last Saturday for no other reason than we had seen glowing reviews on this site and others and thought we'd give it a shot. We would never otherwise have gone to this place, as it's in a Best Western hotel. Not to be a snob, but their restaurants aren't exactly world... More

The service and food was delightful. My wife started with the beef soup she loved it, I started with the house salad which was also very good. For a main my wife had the chicken and rib dish the ribs were so soft and fell off the bone. I had the steak which was perfectly cooked and nicely seasoned.

I had never heard of this restaurant before and after reading all the reviews in Trip Advisor, I was anticipating quite the meal and ambiance. What a disappointment. The decor was dated and shabby. It needs a renovation. The meal was ok (ribs - nothing to write home about, and seafood pasta dish - acceptable but not great). Accompanying vegetables... More

I can't remember the first time I ate at the Rib Room, but at one point, I ate there at least once per week for about four months straight while attending hearings upstairs. I have never, never, never had a bad meal in the rib room. As it was my mother-in-laws birthday and her favourite restaurant had closed, we wanted... More
