Wanted to try something different while in Fort Wayne so we call around 5:30 on a Saturday night and was told we could be seated right away. From the minute we walked in the doors we were greeted by a friendly hostess and our waitress was very friendly. Our waitress got pretty busy and kind of forgot about us for... More

Service stated backed up due to employee illness. Positives are lots of bar options and busy locale. Regional Chapman's craft beer was pleasing with perfectly grilled fillet mignon. Walked next door to Nick's Martini Bar for live entertainment after dinner. Will return. Fun evening!

So we wanted to try the Rib Room and were sadly disappointed by it! We ordered a full rack of ribs said it was one of the worst ever! We love our ribs - so this is not just cutting you down Rib Room. Try Tony's in Findlay Ohio for amazing ribs! Their brisket tasted like it was cooked in... More

We met friends to share dinner under the Savor Fort Wayne format on a Monday night. The format limited the menu choices but ribs (all 4 of us) at the Rib Room is obviously a house specialty. The ribs were tender but a couple of the 1/2 slabs were very laden with fat and they lacked anything that made them... More

We had a reservation for 12 and got seated 30 minutes later but no big deal it is 8 on a Friday night. We had our chance to run, just before getting seated they told us that they are out of ribs. When ordering they had also ran out of brisket, jalapeño bread and Bud Light. I did get me... More

This was our first visit to Nick's since the new look. We were greeted by Debbie and seated. I told her I was here to try the savor menu and see the new decor. Debbie went on to tell us all our choices and answered all of our questions. Our whole service was pleasant,even though we only had water, our... More

My husband and I had not been to this restaurant in twenty years. It had been closed and recently reopened and because I wanted to try something new to us, we went here for dinner. They were running a special during "Savor Fort Wayne" - two meals for $30. There were three choices of soup or salad, entree, and a... More

I've lived in Fort Wayne for 30 years and had never been to The Rib Room. My husband is from Texas and is always looking for good BBQ ribs, brisket, etc. We had the pretzel bites and cheese - they were very good. I had the ribs and my husband got the brisket and spicy sausage. Neither of us liked... More

Went to the Rib Room last night for dinner, wondering what it was like under new ownership. The service was terrible! We waited 10-15 minutes for the waitress to even acknowledge our presence and bring ice water. Then there was a long wait to order, a long, long wait for the food to arrive, the waitress didn't even notice my... More

We wanted to go on a nice dinner date so we picked the Rib Room. The atmosphere was more of a spruced up diner with more lighting than expected. It was noisy and cold (a few people kept their coats on due to the extended blast of cold air when the doors opened). The service was what I'd expect at... More
