My first impression walking in was of a northern cabin-style restaurant - wood panelled walls and Coca Cola memorabilia. My husband and I both ordered the ribs and chicken and tried all of the sauces on our table, preferring the spicy one. The ribs were not and tender and just fell off the bones. This is good value for the... More

Went to Michelbob's with family on a recent visit to Naples. Our waitress was friendly and knew the menu. Of course, the adults ordered the ribs and chicken, and the children had items from the kids menu. Enjoyed my 1/2 rack of ribs and bbq chicken. My meal came with a baked potato, cole-slaw and beans. A good meal for... More

I very rarely rate places this low but I sent back my BBQ chicken back and it was still terrible the second time. Finally just could not eat it and they were nice enough to take it off the bill --it tasted like rubber chicken that had been reheated and slapped on with barbecue sauce and the baby back ribs...

Mickelbob is a good BBQ joint and joint it is. Nothing fancy but then again, nothing fancy about BBQ. Portions are adequate but make sure it comes in hot, otherwise you may need to ask them to reheat or bring another slab that has been taken out of the heat. Sauces are all good and sides are what you would... More

My wife and I tried this place for the first time. She ordered the ribs and top of the round combo. Sides included beans, coleslaw, potato salad and a slice of garlic toast. She said ribs didn't have much meat and the potato salad had way too much mayo. She has had better ribs, but overall was good. I ordered... More

Our foursome visits Naples every year for a weekend of golf. The trip always includes a trip (or two, as we did this year) to Michelbob's for baby back ribs. They are the best I've ever had. This is a don't miss place when you're in Naples!

We were tired of turkey after Thanksgiving and wanted to try something different. We opted to get take-out barbeque for 9 of us. It turned out to be very good and reasonably priced for us. We loved the food and plan to either eat here again or take-out.
