Let's say, I choose this restaurant based on the reviews and I'm glad I did. This place is not huge, yet cozy and quaint. We were greeted by the owner (which we didn't know until the end) and seated promptly (had reservations). The waitress Judy was amazing and attentive to any of your needs ( water, more butter, hotsauce etc).... More

The food at this restaurant was absolutely wonderful. The artichoke appetizer, ceaser salad with anchovies and prime rib were all unbelievable. The Adams Rib is without a doubt the best restaurant I have been to in YEARS! The service was spot on, the atmosphere was unpretentious and the prices were more than reasonable. I will most defiantly go back again.

Visiting for work. Had to find a place to eat that I could unwind and get good food. This little gem is worth the visit! I started with stuffed mushrooms, then the salad with the house peppercorn ranch was tasty. Then a filet and baked potatoe. I'm in heaven did not need steak sauce so you know this Texan loved...

It's a swanky old steakhouse. Dark wood and old decor, but the food and service are very good. No truffles (except the dessert kind) or fois gras here, just good old fashion steakhouse cuisine. It seems to be a popular place with the bar crammed with locals, all known by their first name. Servers are attentive, light hearted and friendly.... More

From the moment mom & I arrived in the middle of a busy Thursday night, we had a wonderful experience here. They were packed, since it is Local Restaurant Week here in Buffalo, but we were seated in less than 15 minutes. The service was warm, friendly, and super fast. We shared the petite filet medallions in Madeira sauce, tender... More

We are from out of town and we're looking for a local cuisine not a chain restaurant. Adam's rib lived up to our expectations we had a wonderful meal in a local atmosphere and good wines all prices are very reasonable. Put it on your list.

Restaurant week selection. The food was just ok, not much flavor. The one item we did enjoy was the broccoli cheese soup. There was a smell in the restaurant that I couldn't make out, wasn't so pleasant.
