When my friends or family want to celebrate an occasion, the Ribber is the place we pick. I'm a fussy person when I order steak. I order 'well done' but I don't like dry steak. The Ribber is one of the few places on earth I can get it done my way, juicy but cooked through. They have a variety... More

Portsmouth is an awesome little town with a ton of history. In it you will find Ribbers, a little rib joint that people from all over have visited. It would make for a great destination for a motorcycle ride. The ribs there are hands down the best I've ever had in my life, and as a veteran I've been all... More

Went here on a business lunch on the recommendation of a local and was SO pleased! Ordered the Rib Eye medium with Au Jus and could not believe how good it was! The staff are very down to earth and friendly. I wish this restaurant wasn't 2 hours from my home!

The steak was delicious! You can't find a better steak anywhere! Be prepared to wait awhile for the steak if they are busy which they always are on the weekend.

If you are looking for a place to eat in Portsmouth, Ohio with a "funky" atmosphere and great food, look no further than the Scioto Ribber. Great Steaks, Great Barbecue -- pork and chicken, fries and coleslaw. You can also get carry-out for a party at home.

They only have 2 kinds of steaks, the worst two. Ribeye & New York Strip, which are half fat & gristle. I don't consider those steaks. Their sides come in little plastic containers, PLASTIC. They are slow, never checked on our table after we ordered. For the prices, one would expect the food to be in/on real dinnerware, not plastic... More

The steak here cannot be beat! What the place lacks in atmosphere it makes up for with taste!! The ribs & sauce are also excellent! I order the steak, my husband orders the ribs, then we share! Too hard to choose one over the other! Expect a wait for a table, though.

I have heard for the longest time that this establishment was delicious but I was always skeptical. Friday night we drove an our to get here for some dinner. We arrived around 7:00pm and the place was packed. We entered our name and party number(2) and then could only stand and wait for our name to be called. Staying out... More

We have gone here for years when back in town visiting family. Don't go here for a fancy dining experience - go here for incredible ribs, steaks, German coleslaw, and Ribber fries. I can't speak for the chicken or seafood as I've never had them (I can't pull myself away from the ribs and steak). Tasty food!

The drive is forgotten when that steak is set in front of me. Juicy, tender and a plateful. Sides a +
