Had to go a second time and it was just as delicious and satisfying. Meal prepared as ordered. Superb salad bar. Friendly staff and service was excellent. Family oriented.

We were longtime residents of Champaign and the Ribeye was a staple! Hello awesome salad bar! This return trip proved that sometimes "the same old" is jyst as tasty as ever. The staff was accommodating to our larger party (with half being kids) and the service was painless. Food was delicious. Can't wait to return!

The restaurant is a bit worn but always a good place to eat - the salad bar is a meal in itself and the steaks are always good. Service is good and efficient even with a large group. Not the cheapest place in town to eat but always quality.

It took us 3 visits to finally get there when there wasn't a long wait. It's worth the wait, however we had 4 hungry kids with us and that's never pretty. The salad bar is fantastic and the steaks are absolutely perfect!!

Always a great place to eat. Great seafood, good steaks, terrific salad bar and the service is always good. Not a fancy dress-up place, just a casual good place to eat.

One of the best steak places in CU! Has a great salad bar, something extremely rare anymore. Great steaks and chops, with large baked potatoes filled with whatever you want.

We have been long time customers to the Ribeye steakhouse for more than 25 years. The management, atmosphere, and food quality remained in top shape with amazing consistency over those long years. This Valentine Day, I was there again and ran into Chris, the Assistant Manager, who kept the operation flowing smoothly forever. For anything ranging from a simple family... More

This is a steak house, and has great steaks and a very good salad bar but not much else. Don't expect vegetables as they only have baked potatoes. It is a nice quite setting, great for business meals but you really need a reservation as it fills with locals every night. They do have bar service, but no bar to... More
