My wife and I were in the area for a concert at a nearby winery and stopped off at this restaurant after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. The place opens at 4PM on Saturday so we get there at 3:20PM and the parking lot already had people waiting. We were able to get around 3:40PM inside and put our... More

Our entire family really enjoys going here for a wonderful meals and steaks are always cooked to perfection. The mouth watering salad bar is always kept full and fresh baked bread completes the meal never leaving room for dessert.

I have been to the Ribeye on many occasions with my husband, family and friends. It's exactly what it says Ribeye. They know exactly what they do best. The menu consists of ribeye steaks in various ounces, a grilled chicken dish and fried shrimp. All meals come with the salad bar which is fantastic, one of the best in town... More

Simply a good steak place with little frills. They have a great salad bar that you can go wild with building your own salad as you desire. They know how to cook a good Pittsburgh style steak

We made reservations well ahead of time but we arrived to find someone with a similar name had been given our table and we had to wait quite awhile. The salad bar is excellent but the steaks were average at best and service very slow. There are better steak places.

The Ribeye is the best salad bar around, you can order salad bar with their delicious steak and don't forget the dessert! My family had an amazing waitress who was kind and willing to help with any questions we had.

We love coming to the Ribeye, but live a little farther away and don't get there as often as we used to. Our latest visit was 11/5/14. As usual, my wife and I both ordered the ribeye which was predictably awesome! Add a side of sautéed mushrooms and my meal was delicious. But the real reason to come to the... More

The Ribeye has without a doubt the best salad bar around! The steaks are better than average, the chicken is very good. The sizzling skillet, help keep the food warm much longer than other places. If you like mushrooms, the skillet also helps keep them warm. We dine there quite often, and the staff is always helpful and quick to... More
