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 Inside décor is outdated but like I said clean.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

We arrived and were seated promptly. This is a place out of the 1950's with some of the Devore form that era as well. A bit of updating needs to be done to win higher praise although most served are college students. The food was ok and the steaks food be of better quality. The service was ok but not... More

We reserved a section for 34 in our group. We were a last minute reservation but accommodated to the best of their ability. We were seated promptly upon arriving at the time of our reservation. The food was fresh, hot and the service was top notch! The salad bar is excellent, the shrimp as big as prawn and excellent steak... More

The Ribeye has a very limited menu, but the items on the menu are delicious! The salad bar is top notch, doesn't get any fresher. The mushrooms are simple but fantastic. And the grilled chicken is to die for! Of course the steaks are always tender and juicy. And don't forget the fresh bread loaves and the twice baked potato.... More

The Ribeye is a local place that has been in Champaign for many, many years. They only serve three items, ribeye steaks, chicken, and shrimp. The limited menu allows them to excel and the food is always hot and cooked according to your instructions. Add an old-school salad bar to the mix and you have everything you could want. The... More

I have been going to this restaurant for almost 40 yrs and have never had a bad steak. I love salad bar & this one is huge with some items not found elsewhere like pickled herring. If I have any complaint it's that the only lettuce on the salad bar is iceberg and that irritates me. For a salad bar... More
