For decades, Michelbob's has served the best barbecue in Naples in a comfortable country decor. The portions are generous and the staff is very friendly and professional.

Really enjoyed our low-key anniversary dinner at MBs. My ribs were tasty if a tad bit dry. My hubby’s steak was generous, had a nice rub, and was cooked to perfection. I especially liked the $3 Frozen Margarita, the variety of sides on my dinner,...More
