First time, great experience!

We tried Michelbobs for the first time tonight and really enjoyed our dinner. The French fries were hot and fried in clean grease. The cole slaw was so tasty with our sliced pork sandwitches. The waitress was very attentive . We will definitely go back to Michelbobs.

I had not been here in 20 plus years when we brought our little kids. Just happened to be close to the Naples Airport, so while waiting for a flight, my two pals and I had lunch. The Protein Plate had about 3 #'s of beef, pork, and chicken and no bun. Very filling. I had the grilled chicken sandwich... More

this place is the best. not just the ribs but the great service and atmosphere. year after year they never disappoint. the only thing that can make the experience any better is getting there early for the discounted items, ie, beer, ribs. may you have tight lines wherever you may travel. bob

First time visit to Michelbob's, though we have lived here several years... We are very glad we came...the rack of ribs was tender, meaty and juicy... Fries were crispy and the slaw was flavorful... We live in North Naples so we frequent another rib joint up there and it is very good too but I think this place has it... More

New favorite restaurant! Amazing food. Great atmosphere, I love the Coke decorations everywhere. I love the old feel to it. Service was friendly but room for improvement! The only negative I have was how cold it was in there! Take a jacket or you'll freeze!!

Visited with a large party. We'd contacted the restaurants several times over the weeks leading up to our visit, including the week of, day prior, and day of. We were told to get there early, as they fill up early. Our party had to wait until we were all there before being sat. We had about 30 people, with about... More

If you go for lunch ask for Mery she is the best. Always great Bbq and great service. BBQ pork sandwich is great. Best Coke slaw in The World.

Enjoyed our dinner of country back ribs. There were 4 of us and we all had the ribs. The other couple is staying in Naples the month of January . . . this was their 4th visit!! Our waitress was a little slow in service, but the food was worth the wait. We are staying on Bonita Beach, so it... More

Recommended by our daughter so we thought we would try it. We were certainly pleased. Both my wife and myself go a combination dinner. I had ribs and chicken, she had ribs and fish. Dinners come with cole claw, garlic toast, and beans. The price was fair, $15.00, the service very good, and courteous. I will return.
