A very good experience!

I have lived in the area for ten years and I have past this restaurant a thousand plus times. Recently, based on the suggestion of my ten year old, we gave it a try and we both loved it! The inside of the restaurant is a bit dark and could use a freshen up however as I looked around and... read more

Candles. Red table cloths. Red cushioned chairs. Wood panel walls. Dark ceilings. Few modern art paintings. Small dining area. All contribute to a comfortable and pleasant relaxing atmosphere. Good menu of steaks, chicken and fish. I enjoyed my prime rib - not the best, but decent. Attentive service. I'd return.

Adams Rib has been around for a very long time, and with good reason: they serve excellent food at a reasonable price. I was leery about going here because of the not so great reviews..I'm glad they didn't deter me. The atmosphere was perfect: calm and relaxing. I really dislike restaurants that are so loud that you can't carry on... More

I live and work in the neighborhood. I have been going here for dinner and lunch for decades. A recent (about 1 1/2 years ago) ownership change has now been fully implemented. The food quality has declined from the former good-very good to the present fair to good. The bar - both quality and service - has declined from excellent... More

Though we have driven by it so many times, my husband and I just went here for the first time tonight for restaurant week. We were greeted by the nicest woman, we told her it was our first visit. She said how happy she was we decided to come in and proceeded to tell us about the menu. The waitress... More

Their double cut lamb chops were broiled perfectly and had great flavor. Some of the best I have had

This is an old, established restaurant in our neighborhood. My wife and I haven't been there in over 20 years. It still has the charm of the 50's with red vinyl booths, etc. We found out it was under new management when we got there and the owner sat us. The food was outstanding with many menu selections. We were... More

I have been in Buffalo on business twice in the last month or so and after having my fill of wings I felt like having a steak. I picked a great place. The service was outstanding, the drink I ordered was really well made and the steak was delicious. The manager came to my table and asked me how everything... More

The ribs were great. They were falling off the bone. The sea scallops were equally good--just a small portion. Would definitely retur. Service is friendly and prompt. Prices were reasonable.

The moment we stepped into this restaurant, I felt like a local. The decor and ambiance contributed to this "insider dining" feel. Artwork and dark wood typify the decor. We parked in the lot behind the restaurant and came in through the back door. The hostess greeted us warmly and seated us immediately. Our waitress came right over and took... More
