Good food and worth a visit The choice I found was limited as I expected to have lots of different sauces with the ribs but there were just a few ... my partner had chicken which was extremely small all well done. Service was also quite slow at busy times. The ribs themselves were good - starters again limited choice.

We were staying in an All inclusive hotel near by, but, decided to have a break and eat out one evening. We picked The Rib Shack based on good TA reviews and how near it was to the hotel. I booked a table via their website and so glad I did as this place is very popular. Our drinks order... More

We had a great meal here. The portions were massive! (We still managed to have a mars bar cheesecake for dessert to share which was to die for!). Lovely atmosphere and great friendly, smiley staff!

Had 7 days in Pathos visiting The Rib Shack 3 times as so good. Huge portions of ribs probably a kg covered in JD sauce, also had veg burritos and veg fajitas which Jane found fantastic. The last time we went we had pizza - I had truffle pizza which was lovely It's a must to go too
