Great Steaks!!

The place is a little unorganized and not much to choose from for appetizers, but I worked with people from Pittsburgh that when they come through this area, they have to stop at the Ribber!! I know of people that drive down FROM COLUMBUS, to eat here. I've eaten at steakhouses all across the... read more

We stopped here after moving a student into the university and grabbed the last available table around 2pm. With the move-in you could tell the staff had been running all day. We were quickly greeted, given drinks, and able to order. We had been warned about the sizes being HUGE and that was very true. We ordered the Petite Rib... More

Went camping with my dad and brother. My brother took us out here to eat. Wow. What a great steak. Small or large steak. Should have been large or larger. Will go back when close to Portsmouth

Went on a Weekday afternoon, and typically, the place was largely empty. That's not a comment on service, but on the time which we almost always dine: Off Horus. The bartender quickly greeted us and offered to let us sit "Whever ya Want", so we chose a booth in the back, away from the bar. Our waiter came and quickly... More

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

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.

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.
