We eat at Michelbob's every time we are in Naples. This is a favorite for my husband and his whole family actually (they have ribs and sauce shipped up to MA!). I love the bbq chicken. Great food and really good prices. We arrived early as we hadn't had lunch, and we were pleasantly surprised to find early bird prices... More

Despite living near this restaurant for several years, we had not eaten there, expectinga Tex-Mex overly spicy sauce. We were pleasantly surprised. The baby back ribs, the house specialty, were fall-off-the bone tender and delicious. The basic sauce is mild enough for tender stomachs, and spicier alternatives are available at the table. The baked beans were the best I've ever... More

The service people are extremely surly and rude. I will not go back there ever again. I think its reputation is undeserved.

My family and I have been coming to Michelbob's for years. We have never been disappointed. There is a reason why it has won so many awards: it serves the best ribs anywhere. The meat is so tender it literally falls off the bone and the sauce is delicious. At the table there are 3 separate sauces available depending on... More

Haven't been to this BBQ joint in a long time...that being said, there was a coupon in the Naples Daily News so I thought I would give this place another shot. Well I'm happy I did. The parking lot was packed and it looked like season here. My hopes were dwindling. There was a bit of a wait, apparently there... More

We have visited Michelbobs several times before and have always been pleased. Not always great but always good....today was different. Our ribs came fast so we barely had time to drink 1/2 our cocktail. Both entrees were were dry and both tasted like they had been refrigerated a couple of days. NOT what we expected. The server brought another rack... More

This place served up the best BBQ we've ever had ! The flavor is just awesome. Prices were very reasonable & portions were large. Their cole slaw & bake beans are also so great. Plenty of seating & parking here. They were busy but we did not have any service issues. We will go back.

We stayed at the Ritz on Vanderbilt for 5 nights but I think my favourite meal (and cheapest !!) of our trip was Michelbobs. Exactly what it says on the tin... Award winning Ribs, great service and I can't wait to come back one day.
