Worth a visit

This restaurant is old school USA and a welcome change from the snooty restaurants in the Venice village area. You get good service, good food and good portions for a reasonable price. The ribs are very good, I enjoyed the cowboy steak, the portions are filling without being obnoxiously large. If... read more

Visiting from England we stumbled across this restaurant in April 2014. When we knew we were coming back to Naples this year we just had to eat here. Beautiful food - between us we had bbq chicken, ribs, hot dog, fries, baked potatoes, slaw, beans. Great friendly service, super decor and a really relaxed place to eat. Will definitely go... More

We always go here when visiting South West Florida. The ribs are amazing. We happened to go on a Tuesday and got a couple dollars off our rib dinner. I'm originally from Minnesota so loved to see the Twins memorabilia. Brought back great memories of the World Series.

You'll not regret having ribs and catfish combo at this place and while you're at it order the onion rings. Ribs were delicious and the catfish was tasty. Loved the onion rings - a little bit on the spicy side which I like. All the for a very reasonable price of under $15! I would go back when I'm in... More

Excellent, warm and efficient service. More than ample portions that were tender and hot. I ordered the catfish and the batter was light and crisp and the fish was cooked perfectly. The fried that accompanied the meal were firm and well cooked and tasty.

Visited on Saturday evening with my family. The restaurant is decorated with old coke signs and is clean and bright (don't let the shuttered exterior put you off!) Children's meals were a good size and went down well. Good reports on the chicken and BBQ pork. My combo Ribs and beef was excellent (see pic) service was efficient and very... More

Visited in July with our family of three. Food was great and portions were large. We all had left overs to carry back to the hotel. Service was prompt and friendly. We really enjoyed all the old. Coca Cola signs decorating the restaurants. A change from the Fifth Avenue scene and quite enjoyable. What they do - they do well!

We visited as a group of 8 and at peak dinner hour, but had no trouble getting seated during the summer off-season. The service was great and the food was excellent. The onion rings we started with with some of the best I've had. The ribs were right up there as well. I'm more than often disappointed by restaurant ribs,... More
