Our family has been going to Rib Trader off & on for several years. On a recent visit, the restaurant was almost deserted! We even wondered if it was still open. The decor has been stripped, almost as though in preparation--hopefully--for a much-needed renovation. The setting is tired...but our food was delicious. We have never attended their magic show dinner, only have eaten in the regular dining room. Our waiter took excellent care of us and we enjoyed chatting with him. We hope that things perk up at Rib Trader since we continue to enjoy their food.
