Wide variety of selections. Good service

A classic steakhouse. Attentive but unobtrusive service. Steak (filet mignon) and prime rib cooked as ordered. Well stocked,esh salad bar. Visually attractive. Hostess could have been a bit friendlier ... but we were there near the end of the evening.

Excellent! Jeanette was our server, very efficient and friendly. She found out it was our first visit there and made our evening very accommodating. Met the owner's son who was very personable. Our steak and shrimp was delicious and salad bar fantastic. We will be back.

Whenever we go to Evansville, we HAVE to eat at Western Ribeye. They have the best salad bar around, and their steaks are great! The service is good, and you won't be disappointed.

We really like to eat at Western Ribeye. They have one of the best salad bars in Evansville. Their steaks are always tender and cooked to perfection. We like the atmosphere also.

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

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
