Pretty good

This place is one of the most popular restaurants in Portsmouth. It's small, but the food is good. It has a great atmosphere and the employees are friendly.

I have traveled all over the U.S. and the world and no place that I've been to have steaks as good as the Ribber. Their chicken and ribs are the best that I've had as well. We live in Alabama and when I get a desire for their steaks, we head up north 500 miles ASAP. It's a shame that... More

Awesome meals - tasty ribs and a perfect strip steak, both grilled to perfection! All served in a friendly old school bar atmosphere. A great experience. You can't go wrong at the Ribber!

This place is a classic old school bar with tremendous food. I travel around the country, and if folks have heard of anything from our area; its this place. Well stocked bar, friendly staff, and everything on the menu...Ribs, Steaks, Chicken, Baked Potatoes, Onion Rings, and German Style Slaw etc...are awesome.

This is a really small, local restaurant. The waiting room seems to be in the back door, but there was only a short wait, so we sat at the bar. The Ribber carries the Portsmouth Brewing beers, so locals on tap. The steaks come in 2 sizes: small or large, and you choose between a New York Strip and a... More

Went here with FAM and friends and I tell ya, best food ever! Large portions and friendly staff. The steaks are to die for and the ribs are all about the smoke. They don't even need sauce.

We had a group of 16 visit the Ribber at noon on a Saturday. The staff was friendly and attentive only to be beaten by the food. I had a small steak, which isn't small by any measure unless you are comparing it to the large 32oz steak they offer. The steak was marvelous cooked exactly how I ordered it... More

The Ribber is a great place to get a steak that melts in your mouth. The bibs are southern style, almost like a pork chop so a lot of people don't like them. Don't expect a lot of side dish choices as there are few. That being said the steak is worth the long wait and the few side dish... More

This place is supposed to be BIG on ribs, but if you order BARBECUE ribs you get a very large pork chop and a container of barbecue sauce. Was not impressed, in fact, thought it was a joke.

You would never think this little place would make the best Ribeyes known to man. The flavor is superb. The rest of the menu is average and they don't offer Salad! As far as service of the bar and waitresses...SUCK! RUDE RUDE RUDE. There is always a feeling of chaos with the staff inside as well. I've heard them complaining... More
