We've eaten here before and it was amazing, but our last visit really left me (though not my fiancee, who's char burger, sweet potato fries, and fried pickles appetizer turned out quite well) really disappointed. My ribs were quite dry, only retaining a hint of moisture between the bones, with the outer layer of meat bone dry, even with the tangy bbq sauce on top. My steak fries, a rib house staple, were also incredibly dry and quite obviously prepared some time ago and either heat-lamped or reheated. I wouldn't normally qualm about this sort of thing, but given the cost of a dinner here (close to $50 for two with an appetizer and water to drink), I doubt we'll be returning to this old favorite. 2/5

If you are looking for fall off the bone ribs, this is not the place. However their ribs are slow cooked and tender with a nice sauce. Also had the chicken wings and they were excellent. Meaty and tasty! We will definitely return to the Crystal Lake Ribhouse.

The customer experience was great and the service was great. They give you a lot of food. The people who worked there was great and nice. The ribs the sauce wasn't the greatest barbecue sauce I tasted on ribs. The barbecue sauce could be better.

The best barbecue around! Delicious unique chili and this time I tried an interesting sandwich that was a hamburger topped with shredded pork. Outstanding. Generous portions and daily "all you can eat" specials. Nice sit down atmosphere with tables, booths, and a separate bar area.
