Went for a three month checkup. This is still the best steak in Evansville. Excellent salad bar and sides to any entree... Everything was perfect... Including top notch service Would advise to still done here. I have eaten here for 20 years and never had a bad meal or service.

I suggested Western Ribeye, it had been awhile since any of us had been there, and they did freshen the decor up a little bit. I got a steak and shrimp combo, everything was tasty. Great salad bar. Boo to the hair on my glass the waiter brought for my beer. We all enjoyed our dinners, the only complaints I... More

Double sided salad bar with shredded lettuce and about anything you can think of to go on a salad with a big selection of dressings. Kept well stocked and clean. Rib-eyes are very good and cooked to perfection. Nice selection of sides to compliment your meal. Suggestion: Have the server wait to turn your entree order in until you have... More

Went for a seminar and loved the quiet room we were in, I highly recommend this place for corporate dinners and parties. The steak was AWESOME! Great little, melt-in-your-mouth Rib-Eye. The salad bar was VERY GOOD with tons of options and sides. Several cheeses and breads to choose from, delicious. The wait staff was attentive and courteous. No complaints at... More

Legendary buffet??? Far from it!!! Lettuce was bagged shredded and it contained less items than a Shoneys salad bar. Our waitress was friendly enough, but a large portion of the staff had some tattoos poorly placed. One waitress that was helping, actually had visible tattoos on her chest and arms. When I pay $90 for 3 meals, I expect the... More

A group of us stopped in for lunch and they were able to accomodate us. Very attentive and friendly staff. Service was quick and refills on drinks were on point. Many in our group had the soup and salad bar. The soups I saw looked house made and were well received. Breads were offered on the salad bar and that... More

I had not been to Western Ribeye in 15 or 20 years and that was a big mistake because the food was GREAT. This was the best meal I have ever had in the Evansville area. Maybe the best meal since the wife and I ate at FoGO Brazilian Steakhouse in Beverly Hills CA. and 1/4 the price of FoGo.... More

New Years Eve 2013. Thankfully we had reservations. I realize it was a busy evening but when you can not cut your prime rib as my husband experienced and my pork chop was over cooked, hard and dry as mine was, it puts a damper on the evening, This was not inexpensive meal. $50. The only thing that was positive... More

Not sure what to make of this.Maybe it is because when I hear of a great salad bar, I am expecting something different. Shreaded lettuce - check. Fresh veggies - check. Salad topings and dressing - check. Creative dishes or toppings - nope. Feild greens - nope. Balsamic vinegar - nope. It is a big bar, but even for it's... More

On Nov.1st about 30 in our party met for dinner. We were told that there would be an automatic 18% Tip added for a party that large. This was fine for me. We were handled by one waitress taking drink orders and finally the dinner orders. They had a good system but sorely needed additional wait staff for us. Granted... More
