On a Saturday night the wait was an hour and a half. We were not surprised since that's what all the reviews said. When we got to the table it took another 15 mins. To get a waitress. We all ordered something different. Chicken was...More

I make it a point to come to the Ribber every time I'm in Portsmouth. Seriously the best green beans I have ever ever had. Rolls are premade, nbd. The meats off of the grill are seriously the best. Get here early to not wait...More

Ribber has the best steak in the area. Service is excellent. Expect a small wait if going in weekends.

We both ordered ribs - house specialty, right? They were kind of dry, and only one barbecue sauce is offered on the table. My applesauce was prepackaged Motts with a foil wrapping on top. The Ribber fries are actually handcut potatoes (home fries) that are...More

The smoked ribs and chicken are both really good with their barbecue sauce, but their rib eye steak is really special. This is easily the best steak I've had in Ohio. The baked potato and green beans are really good too.
