The Rib House is now run by Thai owners, and they have expanded, both the dining rooms and the menu. This is a great place to go with picky eaters, because there are LOTS of choices. They serve American food with a Southern accent; they also serve succulent BBQ ribs, and last but not least, they have a wide range of Thai dishes that are absolutely excellent. Price is middle-of-the-road, service excellent (they really seem to care that you are enjoying your meal). This is a gem of a place, and I'll be back soon.

After a long hiatus, I returned to the Rib House. Although the sushi menu was very appetizing, I decided to have barbecue. It was very good,and you have a variety of sides. Even better still , you get unlimited soup and salad. It wasn't a big salad buffet, but what is important is that it is fresh and homemade. The chicken soup was definitely handmade. I think this restaurant deserves another review on the sushi itself.

In Lakeland for a few days. Found the Rib House nearby. Had the small ribs which was more than enough for me. Wife had pad thai. Pad Thai very nice and authentic. Service good. Price reasonable. Popular place. Good menu selection on menu. Easy parking.

Drove 46 miles to meet my son and his family for dinner, and was pleasantly surprised by the extensive menu and high quality of the food we ordered. The menu contains everything from sushi, Thai food, barbecue, burgers, to steaks. All six of us ordered different items, which were all delicious and well prepared. My wife said the sushi was some of the best she has had. The prices are very reasonable, too. We shall return, despite the fact that it is an hour away.

Popped in following fasting blood work across the street. One other customer at 7:20 AM but a handful more arrived while we were dining. Our waitress was friendly, attentive, and kept the coffee cups full. We both ordered off the senior menu. The wife had an egg over easy, bacon, home fries and a biscuit. I had a huge chocolate chip pancake (see photo), a scrambled egg, and 2 strips of crispy bacon for $5.99. With 2 coffees, tax, and 21% tip, we paid $20. Loved watch the fish in the tank. We will gladly return.
