Excellent food, superb staff... my first time and everything was fresh. Waitress made recommendations and was very pleasant. Always nice to find a mom and pop not a chain.

If you have not visited this Restaurant you are missing an excellent place for dining and best food ever..... Steaks, Shrimp, Chicken and the best Salad Bar Ever. Service was great along with this.

Today we visited Western Ribeye & Ribs for lunch with friends. We enjoyed the salad bar and soup. Over the years we have eaten there mostly for dinner and always enjoyed the steaks and seafood. Western Ribeye is not a chain restaurant but locally owned and it shows. Pride in food and service has been exhibited on each visit.

A good value given the steak quality, but not a "bargain". Very fresh salad bar including dark bread, pickled hearing and garlic butter included with every entree I think. Attentive staff, but a few may have been in training so they "lost track" of who was responsible. Result was they were overly attentive, which really is FAR better than the... More

Locally-owned and very welcoming to travelers. They gave me a free dessert because I was a new customer.

We love to come to Western Ribeye especially for the salad bar and the bread with apple or herb butter. We have had dinner for two here and also attended luncheons for 50. Either way the food is consistently well prepared and very tasty. It can be a bit hectic and there is sometimes a wait but alas they do... More

I live in Durham, NC but my mother lives in Newburgh, IN and she is highly selective and her favorite present is my gift certificate I get her every year for dinner at the Western Ribeye. I have been there several times and would rate their salad bar and kabobs as over-the-top amazing. I have never had anything less than... More

The atmosphere was nice, quiet. Although, our food was not served at the same time, half of our table was finished before we were even given our food. We ordered several ribeyes and an order of the ribs. The side items were not great-pretty cold. Several people had said their steaks were tough and fatty. The ribs were well rubbed,... More

The interior could use a little TLC though I'm sure this adds to the character. I can look past that. I had a sirloin steak sandwich with fries and the salad bar. It's a basic salad bar-not a wow. Jason's Deli has a nicer salad bar. The food was good though and service was good. The place was active and... More
