Walking into Ramblin’ Jacks Ribeye in Napavine is like walking into a piece of history. The restaurant was decorated by owners Adam and Amanda Adrian. Amanda’s “Grandpa Bob” had built his memorabilia collection on his ranch over many years.
The Adrians bought the Ribeye in 2010, when they renamed the restaurant Ramblin Jack’s Ribeye. Focused on from-scratch cooking with locally sourced ingredients, many patrons come in several times a week, some even daily. Adam Adrian got his start catering out of his car in his twenties and went on to open Ramblin Jack’s restaurant in Olympia which served that community for 20 years. Ramblin Restaurant Group also owns Mercato Ristorante, i.talia pizzeria, and their newest restaurant called Row, in Olympia.
The thing that keeps bringing people back to Ramblin Jack’s Ribeye in Napavine is the fresh, home cooked meals, large portions, friendly staff and waiters, of which many have been employed at the Ribeye for more than a decade. The restaurant specializes in ribeye, steaks, reuben and corned beef all smoked in house, with a commitment to always using locally sourced ingredients.
Community is at the heart of everything the Ribeye has done over the last 12 years. The restaurant recently hosted an “Ice Cream Sundaes for Breakfast Buffet” for Titus, a 4 year old boy from Toledo with a terminal heart condition, making one of his wishes come true.
General Manager Hallie Provost has worked for the restaurant for 12 years now and shared, “We all work together to focus on the success of the restaurant, and we do what we can to support the community.” Visit Ramblin’ Jacks Ribeye at 1336 Rush Road in Napavine.
