Nice and easy!

We stopped in based on Trip Advisor recommendations and we're not disappointed. They serve three things here, Ribeye, chicken, and shrimp. We had the ribeye and shrimp in our party of three, and it was all delicious. Fresh baked bread and an awesome salad bar topped it off. If you are looking for... read more

This restaurant was around the corner from our hotel so we thought we would give it a try. It was like walking into my grandparents house in the 70s. Dark wood, metallic veined mirrors, spot lights, and multiple levels were overwhelming. The menu is very limited and the drinks were disappointing. I had the chicken and it was excellent and...

Since this was close to and highly recommended by the hotel, how could I not try a place with a name like the Rib eye?!? My first impression was that the place was odd...no bar, kind of spread out in several small rooms causing a weird vibe. But that was quickly overcome by phenomenal, friendly service and fantastic food. First... More

My spouse and I have been here once before and just loved it so we took a 21/2 hr ride to revisit. The food both the shrimp & rib eye were great and the salad bar is filled with just about anything you would want to go with lettuce, we will be making more trips to eat here. If going... More

This place was wonderful.....my daughter wanted to treat me for dinner for an early Mothers Day dinner and it was so worth it!!!! The salad bar was out of this world. My rib eye steak was cooked just right. I will go back for sure.....

This was great food, and easy on a gluten free diet. They have ribeyes, chicken, and shrimp. The sides (aside from bread) were gf too. I had a ribeye, thinking going with the restaurant's name would be a smart move. I was correct. Everything (the salad, our server, and the main course) was great. A wonderful Champaign-Urbana establishment. I will... More

The Ribeye is a very good choice for a nice and relaxed steak dinner. I typically show up a little after the rush dinner hour which makes it an quiet and good place for a business meeting. The steak and shrimp is consistently good and you can't beat the salad bar. That alone will fill you up. The service is... More

We stopped for dinner on a Sunday evening and were seated promptly. Our waitress, Kristee was excellent and very attentive. We decided on the special "Steak for Two", which was a 16 oz steak, divided in the proportions of our choice - I ordered 10 oz and my wife ordered 6 oz, and each was cooked to our individual liking....
