Just had a lunch meeting at Michelbob's. It was my first time there. The décor is very nostalgic. I know it is a Naples staple but it is WAY past the glory days. The rolled silverware was dirty & my pants stuck to the bench when I sat down. I ordered pulled pork, my guests ordered a chicken sandwich and... More

Snagged a great deal on groupon so we decided to give it a try. We ordered the 'Feast' for our family of 4 and still had to bring home a take-out box of leftovers! The ribs were great and we really enjoyed the beans and coleslaw sides as well. I would definitely recommend!

We had the most lean, tender, delicious ribs at Michelbob’s! No knife required. The BBQ chicken was also very fine. There were 3 different homemade BBQ sauces, all of which were rich tangy and different. We ordered onion rings, which are authentic homemade and delicious. The dip for them is homemade and quite tasty. Our server was very friendly and... More

We always make a trip here when visiting Naples. Nothing fancy, and bench type seating but service excellent and ribs are succulent and just fall off the bone. House wine is a little bland for my taste but still acceptable. Very good value all round.....but get there early as it shuts at 9!

We had a groupon, ordered 2 full racks of ribs and they were really good. They needed extra sauce but they were very good. Meaty and not fatty which is important to me. Came with coleslaw which was very good, beans so-so. Would go back!

Heard about the quality of Michelbob's baby 'baby' back ribs; and they live up to their worthy reputation. Glad to see a restaurant open on July 4th, and a great B.B.Q one also. Service was competent, capable although somewhat 'stretched' and basics of re-fills and pre-bussing in a timely fashion were missed. We will be back, 'baby' back. GREAT RIBS!

My hubby and I were lucky enough to be driving by on their 1/2 price night. We ordered the feast to share giving us a full variety of BBQ meats to sample. Everything was very tasty with huge portions. The service was outstanding and the atmosphere was great with antiques and Coca Cola collectibles. Best BBQ in the area!

The prices are reasonable, the portions are huge, and the food is really good here. The ambiance is fun and casual. Heaven for the carnivores in your crowd, there are also a couple of really good salads which can be made for vegetarians. The help was excellent, and the place is really convenient for taking a break while visiting the... More

The food was OK, but nothing to brag about. I did get the "world famous" ribs...they were fine, but nothing special. I've had better at Chili's or Outback. My wife and kids got the pork sandwiches and the pork looked almost like sliced deli meat. Not what we were expecting. The service was acceptable and the place has a nice... More
