Very good BBQ. It is reasonably priced and you get 3 side dishes with your meal. The baby-back ribs were fall-off-the bone tasty. The French fries were plentiful and the coleslaw and beans were good. Would definitely go back.

We love Michelbob's. My wife is from MN and so are they. When we stay in Naples, we have to visit Michelbob's. It has a very casual feel to it. The ribs are fantastic; so are the wngs by the way. Staff friendly and prices reasonable. Worth the visit!

Great ribs, just what you'd expect. The beans and coleslaw that come on the side are also excellent. We were a bit annoyed that they have to come in single use plastic containers. I had the potato with it, but should have had the fries instead. Typical American rib restaurant with rustic (great) decor and good, friendly and relatively quick... More

When I saw that they were advertising "award winning ribs" I was really excited. I've eaten at some of the restaurants of the big name BBQ pitmasters and believe me this is nothing like those are. The signature dish, imported baby back ribs, was dry, charred on the bottom of the rack and hardly worth eating. These ribs wouldn't even... More

A disappointing stop. The ribs are very good, but portions are small. All of the other items we tried appeared to be frozen or pre-packaged items. For example the catfish filets tasted old. The 'Musselmans' apple sauce came in the snack cups you can buy at the grocery store. The pulled pork was very fatty. And service was poor. Never... More

The restaurant is located practically across from the Naples airport and next to Carmax on Airport Pulling Rd. The hours are Monday - Friday 11:00am - 9:00pm, Saturday 4:00pm - 9:0pm and Sunday 4:00pm - 8:00pm. As you walk towards the restaurant from the parking lots,you can smell the delicious barbecue that's cooking. As you walk in, a hostess will... More

First off ribs are not good., puny Danish imports, Sauces are not even mediocre, Pulled pork is fine and filling. Service good. Very low prices. Décor and layout atrocious. If you like it now encourage them to improve. But I am doubtful anything will take sprout and allow them to Flourish! Also ads for Canadian resorts a poor decision. And... More

This place is really a bit of old time Americana, from the wooden tables to the old Coke signs and other memorabilia. We were greeted by one of the owners I believe, and he also asked us how everything was and wished us a good night when we left, a nice homey touch you don't find much of anymore. The... More

Ordered the half-rack ribs and fish. Ribs were great, fish was meh. Should have ordered full rack. Wife had the pulled pork which I tried and was very good.
