They have the best fall off the bone ribs. Whenever we are in the naples area on vacation we always go there. They have a fairly large menu, too; but I go for the ribs. It's not the fanciest restaurant in town, but you can't beat the food. They also have a place on Marco Island but I've never been... More

We went there, classic restaurant, with wood benches and tables. We ordered baby back ribs, really good bbq flavour. Quick service, nice waitress, the ribs were so soft...delicious! Try it if you are in Naples! We love Coca cola and all tin stuff all around is wonderful

Couldn't decide to come here or go to Texas Tonys rib shack which is nearby,as both had mixed reviews. We went to Tonys first but the car park was empty at 2pm on a Monday lunchtime so we went to Michelbobs. They were just using one section so that the half dozen tables that were occupied created some atmosphere. The... More

Fell upon this place as we were heading back to the hotel after golf. "Best Ribs in America" sign outside caught our attention. The Ribs were Awesome....The Onion Rings were soooooo good but the COLE SLAW stole the show. Make sure you get EXTRA. Pricing was perfect ...ENJOY :)

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!
