The Rib House is a hidden jewel in the city of Lakeland! We had a taste for BBQ one evening and following the recommendation of a friend, we gave the Rib House a try and we're impressed. Very tender ribs, great vinegar-based BBQ sauce, and hot side items! The serving was a ample amount. We will return and tell other... More

Good big meaty ribs. There was a nice family pack with options for ribs and another meat. Serves Breakfast. Open from 7a-2pm, closes and then reopens for dinner 4:30-8:30. Closed for dinner on Sundays.

I've been going to this place for years! The breakfast menu is delicious! From omelettes to good ole southern biscuits and gravy, it's all good! The ribs are absolutely to die for! Fall-off-the-bone, smoky and full of flavor. Their fried mushrooms are my favorite :) Great vibe for friends and family. The prices are very good, especially considering the amount... More

Very easy to drive past and not notice it. Have yet to have ANYTHING there that wasn't great. Breakfasts are especially a nice experience. Good service, good portions, good pricing.
