I have been going there at least once or twice the week I'm in Campaign annually. 20014 was excellent. 2015 still good, especially as the price is fair. 2017 i left a bit disappointed. Still very good service, salad bar (and the double baked potato-...More

With a name like Ribeye, only a fool wouldn’t know this is steakhouse. And the Ribeye is my favorite cut of steak. I was in town a few days with family members attending the big farm show in nearby Rantoul. On our first evening, we...More

The Ribeye restaurant has been a family favorite for years. The food is consistently good. The salad bar is the best (and freshest), I have ever been to. The steaks always come out on a VERY HOT skillet. The ice cream drinks are a wonderful...More

This place is so stuck in the 80’s with its decor - love it! Dark paneling and Illini stuff everywhere. The salad bar is very good. Lots of stuff to pile on the plate, not just the typical lettuce, carrots, and cheese... I had the...More

This is the restaurant for you if you want a good steak. They have the best salad bar in town. I love the fresh hot bread that its served at every table. The waitress we had was very nice.

The steaks are not that bad, as long as you don't want rare. They serve them on plates that were in the oven, which keeps cooking them. So by the time you get them they are past rare. If this is good for you then...More

This restaurant has been unchanged in menu and decor for decades...possibly because their format WORKS. Menu has just three main entrees: rib eye steak (various sizes, priced by ounce), shrimp, grilled chicken. All are grilled, chicken and steak come out on old-fashioned sizzling platters. Baked...More
