The atmosphere is quite casual and very crowded. Despite the crunch of people, service was relatively good. The food was PLENTIFUL and good. This is a place where people return repeatedly for good food. The food is well-smoked. Love it.

Came into town for a funeral and was told this was the place to go for a good steak. The small ribeye was huge. It was Juicy and cooked to perfection. Also, tried the ribs and they were outstanding! Can't wait to come back

The Ribber has the best steak around. The side dishes are just okay but that's not why you would come here anyway. The steaks are totally worth a mediocre potato and long wait.

The steak at Scioto Ribber is awesome. I get the NY Strip. Never had a bad meal. Tried the Ribeye but went straight back to the strip! All the sides are good, atmosphere is more bar type than a family restaurant.

When my friends or family want to celebrate an occasion, the Ribber is the place we pick. I'm a fussy person when I order steak. I order 'well done' but I don't like dry steak. The Ribber is one of the few places on earth...More

Portsmouth is an awesome little town with a ton of history. In it you will find Ribbers, a little rib joint that people from all over have visited. It would make for a great destination for a motorcycle ride. The ribs there are hands down...More
