To all those people giving this restaurant grief over their 'average' food can I remind them that this is a Rib House and when in Rome... well... the point is, did you actually order any RIBS?
I admit on the first visit the food was a little underwhelming and I too resented the tip section on the bill after 10% service charge is already added, and I am sure this is a nice little earner for the staff.
Another criticism is that their website states they are open until 1.30am however they seem to regularly close the kitchen around 12.30 or earlier. Consistency is extremely important in my mind for restaurants and that includes closing times. At least if this is the case then please amend your website. We saw several couples being turned away around 12.30am, perhaps this is because they also got this information from the website.
Now all the negative stuff out of the way. The ribs perhaps unsurprisingly, were excellent! As were the accompanying fries. Also they are huge and the FULL rack we couldnt finish even with two persons sharing, so its pretty good value for money too.
