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

Our second visit in 3mos. Steaks and chicken cooked to perfection and salad bar was always fresh. Service was good and staff was friendly.

We (two of us) had a wait of 10 minutes to get seated at 6:30 on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Totally reasonable time frame. NY strip was perfectly cooked and ribs were amazing. We will be back when we are in Evansville in the future! Total bill, including desserts (no alcohol) was just over $50 - great value for the... More

Western Ribeye has been known for their salad bar for decades and it still measures up. Mega salad fixings, fresh blocks of cheese and their apple butter are still on the line. We eat there when we come to town and remember our waitress from over 20 years ago. Besides a steak, try their marinated chicken breast for something different.

This is an extremely difficult review for me to write because I have enjoyed dining at Western Ribeye for over 30 years. Over the years we have watched as the quality of the food has steadily declined but because we could always count on good service in a quiet atmosphere (without music blaring as in most restaurants these days),it remained...

We had a family dinner for 36 people on a Saturday evening and everything went so smoothly. We did call ahead for seating together and were accommodated quite nicely. Our waitress was fabulous, so on top of everything, fun and great for a large group of people! Everyone got their meals without delay even though we were such a large... More

This place is way over rated. I'm easy to please and tend to view other harsh reviews with a grain of salt if they are the minority , but , as I found out the hard way with this establishment , they were more accurate . Here's my take...poor value for what you get , in both quantity and quality... More
