For a rundown old place that requires an hour wait for 4 to be seated in a cramped little booth, I won't be back! When we spend $180 for dinner and drinks, we expect much better!! Ribs were dry, charred, and didn't have much meat on them. Although the they had decent flavor, they are certainly not the best ribs... More

The ribs are very good. But, since Dennis has passed away the cocktail pours have gotten PITIFULLY small and the prices have gone up. Too bad, takes the fun out of going there.

Best Bbq ribs ever. They also serve steak and fish along with many other dishes. Once you have the ribs you'll be back. Great family owned restaurant friendly atmosphere and the owners are sure to make you experience the absolute best.

Highlight of our annual trip to Racine to visit friends. Best tasting, tender, fall off the bone ribs. Haven't found any to top these.

I like Oh Dennis. I like the atmosphere, the people and the service is always good. The other patrons in the restaurant are also nice and don't give you a look of disapproval when you bring your kids. Oh Dennis, in my opinion, is overpriced on most items which includes the steak options. They are known for their ribs and... More

My sons (17 & 19) had been to franchise steak houses, but never a true beef eatery. In my youth I had been to Oh Dennis almost weekly, and knew that they needed to go there at least once to really know what a superb rib eye is like. No disappointment. Great meat, unique atmosphere, good service. Pricey but worth... More

The Ribs are great, I am sure the other choices on the menu are good also, but the ribs are great. It's a busy place, with very limited seating, a nice little bar area to wait for a table (they don't take reservations) so go with patience, if you want to eat early, arrive earlier, but it's worth the wait....
