We haven't been to Rube's in some time and decided it would be nice this past weekend. It used to be just stop in, but word is out on how great it is, so now it is best to make a reservation in advance (at...least a week for weekends). Glad we did as it was very busy, but we got in soon and got a nice quiet table. As always the steaks were very good. (you grill your own). Rube's always has a cozy atmosphere. We like standing by the warm grills in the winter too.More

First timers - one word - AMAZING! Hubby had the ribeye and I had the filet. Hands down one of the best steaks we’ve had. Fantastic atmosphere. Would recommend in a heartbeat!

I rarely give a restaurant five stars. Rube’s has the best steak I’ve eaten in any restaurant in 41 states. I had the bone in ribeye. You cook your own steak so I must say I cooked it perfectly. My husband had the bacon wrapped...ribeye. Excellent flavor. The skillet potatoes are seasoned well and delicious. Jerrod was wonderful explaining everything to us. Five stars for service. The little bacon sundae for dessert... 😍 I would return again, and again, and again. 👩🏼‍🍳👩🏼‍🍳👩🏼‍🍳👩🏼‍🍳👩🏼‍🍳More

This was our first trip to Rube's. Read several reviews and they were talking about the large steaks. We took a cooler with us because we live a ways away and it was hot. Salad bar was good, baked beans were great, baked and fried...potatoes. Cook your own Texas toast.. Picked our you steak and grilled it. Great time!!More

We visited on a Sunday night with a group of friends. After taking our orders and a trip to the salad bar, our waiter took us to the meat counter where we picked our steak out. Our waiter talked through the choices and we could...pick the exact steak that we wanted. My wife and I elected to share a bacon wrapped ribeye. We proceeded to the grill where there was unlimited Texas toast to grill while grilled your own steak. When the steak was finished we grabbed some potatoes with onions and peppers from the grill and returned to our table. All the food was delicious and it was a great experience! I would recommend this for a fun group or family outing.More

First Time at Rube's with a party of 10, wouldn't miss it ! The filet Steak was awsome, doing in a group, Standing around the bis grill was a great experience. You can choose your steak and the sides you like and prepare it at...the grill by yourself.More

We just visited this place and I had the cowboy steak which was really really good, but the girl who served our table made it even better, she was so nice and the man who worked there pointed out out tire was a bit flat...and showed us to the nearest gas station which was a big help! One of the nicest restaurants we visited in Canada. Had a table next to a fireplace as well ;)More

Salad bar is good and also we pick which steak and cook on our own on the grill. Roast Potatoes is sooooo good.. we made our own garlic toast. We loved it! Something different and never see customers cook their own food. Neat!! Encourage you...to go to this place...More

The service is spectacular, the cuts of meat were fantastic. Fun process cooking your own steak (no one to blame...). Great sides available. I'll certainly return
