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

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

I've been eating there for a long, long time. They have the best salad bar in town. Although there are only 3 entree choices, all of them are great. I particularly enjoy the fried shrimp. The service is among the best I've ever had.
