Absolutely delicious. Have searched everywhere to find a steak better than the Ribbers. To no avail. It just doesn't exist. It's hard to beat Perfection. I recommend Scioto Rinber to anyone that loves a great Steak or Scrumptious Ribs.

I have heard about this place from guys I work with and could not say enough about it. So when I was down there I got an order to go... Well the ribs are not baby back... They are good but no sauce on them. They have a great smoked taste. I've been told the steaks are better... I will definitely try the steaks next time. Pretty exp ... read more

WOW, everything is so juicy & full of flavor! My husband & I both got small meals. I had steak ( Ribye) & he had Ribs. We also got baked beans & green beans. The best we've had, out to eat. Yumm Yumm. Be patient, but go hungry. Or just share the main course 😉 ... read more

You will not get a better steak any where, this side of the Mississippi. If you are anywhere near Portsmouth OH - do yourself a favor and stop in here.

Super huge plate of ribs in a large order. Steaks are really tasty but fatty.

If you are in this part of Ohio and you don't stop in ....that's your loss. This is by far the best rib and steak house in southern Ohio. The BEST food , great staff and the atmosphere make this place a triple crown winner ... read more

Awesome lunch
We visited the Ribber on a Saturday in October. They opened at 11:00 AM and had a waiting list at 11:05 AM. We waited 30 minutes and it was worth the wait. We ordered the large steak and it fed two of us. It was...absolutely the best steak of 2020. The large steak is two steaks cooked the same way. Highly recommend.More ... read more

Great food! Great service! Definitely try the steak and green beans! My husband had the ribeye and I had the strip steak. Both cooked medium and both were excellent!

The ribeye was perfect. They grill with a wood fire which gives it a very unique flavor.
Thomas Hatcher via - Nov 12, 2020
Although the name is "Ribber" the ribeye steak was the star of our meal! Will definitely be returning!
Kathy Harris via - Nov 9, 2020
I had heard about this place through family and friends. My parents drove an hour and 45 minutes to get here. Was 110 percent worth it. All the staff were nice. The place is clean. Would definitely recommend. The wait is long at certain times, but after trying it I understand why.

I drove 2 hrs to come here. First of all the steak was beyond amazing and was fhe best I ever had, the rolls tasted like typical cheap walmart rolls and butter was cheap butter as well. Nothing original about the rolls and butter. Overall was great experience sweet potato was pretty good. Will be back even if its only for the steak.

Even if you come starving, you're going to go home with a doggy bag. Expensive but worth it. Try the green beans, my son can't go home without a quart of them for later.

Great Steak
I go to the Scioto Ribber whenever I’m in Portsmouth for the steak. It’s truly one of the best steaks I’ve had. Always consistent and cooked just right. The sides and service are also great. Highly recommended.

Best steak around
One of the few places I've eaten that I would honestly recommend anything I've tried. I've visited a dozen or so times. Steak is where it's at. Both the NY strip and the ribeye are contenders for best steak in the country. I order medium/medium...rare, and they're cooked prefectly every time. The smoke flavor combined with the seas ... read more

We came here because it was one of the restrauants in a book I got called Eating your way across Ohio, 101 Must places to eat. When we got to Portsmouth everyone said you have to try the Ribeye steak. It is cooked over a open wood fire and it was seasoned perfectly. I would say the Ribeye Steak here is definitely worth the trip. ... read more

Surprise! Ask what a “rib” is!
