Food,staff and atmosphere were fantastic. Excellent service and great menu choice. The only downside was a £22 soft drinks bill ! Apart from that great place to eat

Went here for the first time on Monday upon a friends' recommendation and what a brilliant idea it turned out to be! Ok we were lucky with the parking and got a space right outside. We were greeted with a friendly smile and shown to a table for two. A quick glance at the drinks menu highlighted a milkshake option so decided to give that a go, not disappointed at all, a proper thick milkshake, great for the weather to cool down with. It took a while to decide on a main course, so many choices, opted in the end for an Empire State Burger and WOW! This is a burger and then some, big, filled with pretty much everything, cooked to perfection and that bacon, brilliant. We opted for the burger for price and value for money and again, not disappointed at all. Needless to say that between the burger and milkshake we did not need a dessert. The atmosphere was relaxed and the background music played at just the right volume as not to be distracting or too loud. Service was quick, friendly and efficient. We had such a good experience that we took some family back there at the weekend and they enjoyed it too. We have had such a great experience there, we have booked a table for 12 for an upcoming birthday, go and try, you will not be disappointed!

We couldn't help but go back to the Rib Shack 3 times during our 10 day holiday....if you like your Steak....you HAVE to go here...!!!
On the 2nd occasion I had an Aberdeen Angus Ribeye Steak that was...and I have to be honest...was probably the best Steak that I have ever had.
The restaurant and the staff are great too..but did I mention the Steak???

We came here for a family meal for my hubby's bday. It was on recommendation and we were not disappointed.
The portions were well worth the money absolutely huge after having a starter as well we unfortunately couldn't manage a dessert.
The service was fantastic and the food delicious. My husband said the ribs were wonderful the best he has had for a while.
Will definitely be returning and recommending.

We have been here on a number of occasions in both small and large parties and have never been disappointed! Easily the best ribs around and the service is fantastic; we've had to wait a few times for a booked table but have always been offered drinks on the house. Would definitely recommend!
