Great smoked meats

VERY casual dining, attentive staff - there must have been 6 people serving and checking on us! Portions are huge, except the side dish? I ordered green beans and they were served in a TINY plastic soufflé cup. Hey Ribber!! Green beans are cheap! Give a man a real side of greens! Not that I left... read more

Their ribs are just wonderful and their baked beans aren't bad either. I haven't tried their steaks yet, but every one around here says that they are very good also. They are always busy, but you really don't have to wait all that long. And it's worth the wait.

We are Portsmouth residents and have had many opportunities to dine at the Scioto Ribber. Our out of town family members CLAIM to come to visit US over the holidays, but the truth is they travel the 1000 miles for Ribber Steaks, fries, fabulous service and a place to rest after this incredible meal😂...and who could blame them!

Long wait. Ribs more like pork chops. Jammed with guests. Service at was good once you survived the wait.

It was awesome. Very busy, during DTWC. Waited awhile but well worth it. The large steak was perfect for me and my husband (they will give you 2 plates).

My wife and I ate here just before Christmas. She ordered the chicken, I got the ribs. Both were really good. To go with them we had baked potatoes. The restaurant is nice, a little bar-like more than a family place. The staff was very friendly and try to make you very welcome. Food was well cooked- they smoke everything... More

The restaurant is good but not outstanding if you have eaten smoked BBQ throughout the south. The "ribs" aren't baby back but a cheaper sirloin with bones. Not tender at all. Best item is the onion rings. House BBQ sauce is sour also. Service was good.

Visited this restaurant twice in 5 days. And would go back again. Great ribs and steaks. And sides to match. We never felt the menu was limited though it does appear so when you look at it. There are several staff who solicitously enquire about your needs. And recommendations follow generously. Our favourite was the peanut butter pie. Do remember... More

Great time at The Ribber again! Steak was superb! Fish and chips had the batter down perfect! Only thing I could ask for in order to improve the trip, would be crispier Ribber fries. The craft beers are phenomenal! If you like beer and steak, you will love The Ribber!

While staying in the Portsmouth Area, my husband and I decided to see if the Scioto Ribbber was as good as the reviews boasted...YES! Totally worth the visit. I ordered the small ribeye steak with green beans and a baked potato. The steak itself was large enough for 2 people. It was melt in your mouth tender. No steak sauce... More
