Delicious and low key

This place exceeded my expectations by a mile. Service was fast and friendly. Food was amazing. Quite literally the best green beans I have ever had. Very low key place. I could see it not being family friendly a after 9 pm. There is a large bar section. Three people in my party and not one of us... read more

Try the steak and not just the signature ribs. The wait is worth it on a busy evening. Definitely get Ribber Fries!

Each country rib is as big as a pork chop...two of them are a huge meal....good smoky flavor..skip local craft beers on tap..not one is any good. Onion rings are big and tasty!

This is a no frills great ribs joint! Seat yourself and enjoy a delicious meal. Split a 16 oz. Ribeye with my husband. My sister had a Grilled Chicken Salad. Everything was good(service, food, ambience)! Would return there again!

When we first pulled in and saw the large grills outside and smelled the smoke we thought wow its going to be awesome. We had a large group and was seated fairly quickly. The restaurant us dark with... More

The Scioto Ribber, or Ribber as the local folks call it, has been a go to place for quality smoked ribs, steak, chicken and other items. I don't really know anyone who doesn't like the Scioto Ribber. They have another restaurant that is a micro-brewery and they sell the same beer there too. They also have a full bar. It's... More

Visited The Ribber on a Thursday nite for dinner w/a friend. The place was swamped and we were put on a wait list...an hour later, we got a table, and an hour after that...we got food! It was OK, but pricey. We had the chicken and pork ribs.

As soon as you approach the restaurant, the smell of the meat on the grill drifts through the air. You can wait outside by the grills or inside. The casual, friendly atmosphere makes the long wait tolerable although you continue to grow hungrier by the minute from the scent. Once our food arrived, my husband stated it was the best... More

My GF and I have eaten here several times... Atmosphere and food is the best... You should have a good appetite when you go because they are not afraid to feed you... Food out weighs the price by far... Go early or you may have to wait for seating... Plenty of parking and your mouth starts to water if you... More
