The 4 of us arrived at 445 and the place was already packed. We only waited about 20mins before we were seated. We ordered 2 large ribeye steaks (large is 2 steaks) along with onion rings, green beans, and ribber chips. The steaks have a very nice flavor, cooked just right. Everything was very good. This is not a fancy... More

After living 40 miles from this place all my life, I finally decided to see what all the hype was about. We had a rib dinner and a ribeye steak. The steak was ok, but no better than I can grill. The ribs were very different than what I'm used to as well as having the texture/toughness of a pork... More

We love to travel and we check trip advisor for restaurant recommendations frequently. So, it's only fair that we review a restaurant that is from our home town and our favorite! The Scioto Ribber has THE BEST FOOD EVER!!!! I ALWAYS order the small ribeye steak (which is huge) and my husband always orders the 3 pc rib dinner. The... More

My husband always orders steak. Even when we go out somewhere else and he orders steak he remarks does not compare to The Ribber. I enjoy the German Cole slaw. A must.

I'm not going to say how the Ribber has the best steaks, chicken, country ribs in the world. What I will say is if you want a really good meal go the Ribber for lunch or dinner and you will not be disappointed. The steaks are either great or very good,(there is a difference depending on who is working the... More

The ribs and steaks are delicious! I had their delicious chicken with their unique fries and green beans. Excellent for the price. It is casual. They barbecue on a pit outside which makes the meat delicious.

The best steak around for any occasion. I have found the ribeye has a bit of grizzle, so I prefer the strip steak. Get a large regardless how hangry you are. A large order is actually two steaks, so I usually eat one and take one to go. The ribs may be different from what you expect so check them... More
