Very nice salad bar and one of the best Ribeye steaks you'll have. Nice quite restaurant. I don't think I would take my kids.

Best salad bar in town. When I want steak this is where I want to go. This isn't a fancy place but its does have linens. Not open for lunch.

My wife and I dined at The Ribeye on a recent Friday evening. We were greeted and seated promptly, and our service was excellent. We both had the ribeye, of course, and I had rice for my side while my wife had the baked potato. Both sides were excellent, and our steaks were cooked perfectly to our liking, medium. Having...

This place is mainly ribeye. There are other items for different palets but mostly ribeye. A very satisfying salad bar and good wait staff. Prices were well within reason and appropriate for the serving portions. Experienced kitchen staff cooked our ribeyes to perfection. Highly recommended, casual yet somewhat intimate.

My husband and I just went to the Ribeye to celebrate a special occasion. We got all dressed up and headed out for a quiet romantic dinner for two or so we thought. When we arrived we were greeted with a friendly greeting and we're seated right away. The hostess took us to our table which was In the very... More

My husband and I recently drove to Champaign to the Ribeye to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We hadn't been over there since our daughter graduated from the U of I in 2009. Could the place use a bit of remodeling, yes. BUT, we go for the food and service which never disappoints. It's not fancy, it's just good food.... More

I ate dinner here one evening based on a recommendation from a local resident. The restaurant was clean and the staff was very friendly. Inside décor is outdated but like I said clean. The choice of steak is only the Ribeye. 10 ounce steak with side and the salad bar runs $20.00. If you want a bigger steak it is... More

This place specializes in steak, specifically - ribeyes. In fact, that's the majority of the menu. Ribeye steak in any size of your choosing. They also have huge, fried shrimp and chicken. All three of these options are deliciously crafted to perfection. And we mustn't forget the salad bar. Holy mother of salad bars, this place knows what it's doing.... More

The Ribeye is one of the few original, classic American steakhouses remaining. I know this is a restaurant my grandfather, who was a cattle rancher, would appreciate. He would agree with me that the Ribeye selects, prepares, and serves steak the way it was meant to be! The twice baked potatoes are a must have (the plain baked potatoes are... More
