    I have gone to the Rib Company for my Birthday for more than 15 years; the full rack of B back ribs has been a high point of the year. But this year was a huge disappointment. It’s all about the server.

    Seems the theme is quantity over quality. Of the three of us we had seven different dishes on our combo plates and the common opinion was that no one dish stood out. Just average. Tri tip was dry. Pulled pork had much too much vinegar in the barbecue sauce. (This is not just a comment on the style of the sauce--for the style of the sauce it had too much vinegar). There are other places in Long Beach that do barbecue better.

    Read great reviews which were well deserved. Made reservation through Open Table but stil waited almost 1/2 hour for a table. Visiting from out of town so wish the valet station had been "labeled" better. Parked out front trying to figure out where the valet might be. Not sure if sign might have been out front earlier but this was around 8:30. Very noisy.

    We came for lunch on a Sunday to celebrate a birthday. We were seated right away. The restaurant is a dimly lit. The server was very nice and efficient. Overall we had very good service. The food was very good. We especially enjoyed our appetizer with fries, wings, fried zucchini and fried mozzarella. They have good pricing on their lunch menu that includes entree and two sides.

    This is a great find in Long Beach/Naples... food was wonderful.. services was friendly attentive and well received. Seemed like a locals place where you could gather together and have a great meal and actually enjoy yourself. No chain restaurant here... this is just the good old fashion BBQ place that everyone can enjoy.

    I don't eat red meat, so I was happy to see that the Naples Rib Company serves fish. We came here because my dad wanted to come here for his birthday; but he, too, had the fish. The 3 people in our party who did have ribs enjoyed their meal and said that the meat was very good. I got the macaroni and cheese as one of my side dishes and was hoping to give some or all of it to my 3-year-old son, but it was very bland and not cheesy at all...probably one of the worst mac n' cheeses I've ever had. The look and the ambience of the restaurant is nice, but not very kid-friendly. We had to leave our sleeping baby in his infant carrier and put it on a rack at the head of the table--making it hard for the servers and customers to get through.

    Naples is one of those go-to restaurants where you know what you'll be getting (great bbq) with consistently good service. Our large party couldn't decide on what to order, but our server returned several times to check with a friendly smile and no attitude. Aside from bbq, they also have a selection of salads, steaks, prime rib and seafood. Started with a full brick which is always fun to share. The catch of the day was mahi in a "luau" sauce (think sweet & sour). A co-diner who ordered it said the fish was good, but wished she had asked for the sauce on the side as it was a little too sweet for her taste. Cocktails are ample and generous with the alcohol. Solid, unpretentious eatery with good food and good service.

    Everyone in my party had bbq. The ribs were ok. Not as tender as we'd like but tolerable. One person had bbq chicken and it was a little bit tough but still retained flavor. Where they definitely need to improve is on the sides. The mashed potatoes were ok the other ones veggies, mac and cheese, beans were all lacking flavor. The steamed vegetables did not look appetizing and appeared dehydrated. Overall, the service was descent. The restaurant looks dated. Nevertheless, I'd visit again.

    Everything they serve is enough for 2 big eaters but the food is great and the staff attentive. The wife and I got an app, combo plate and dessert, at $75 with tip I don't really think the food is worth it but they have what looked like a decent happy hour so I might come back. If you want BBQ and don't mind spending some money and you're in the lbc...it's worth trying naples BBQ.

    Although the food was consistent, service was below expectation. I saw other table servers more often (5) than ours (3). I had made eye contact and gestured to a passing food server, and was brushed off. After eating ribs, the wet hand towels came 5 minutes post meal AND after coming back from the restroom.

    If you love ribs, this is the place. We drive 45 minutes just to have it. They have another restaurant closer to our home, but it's just not the same. My husband is from OKC and will only eat the ribs at Naples Rib Company. Last time he tried the brisket, sausage and baby back platter and enjoyed each one. My nephew loved it too. If there is any downfall at all, they could work a little more on the cornbread as it's more like a cake vs. an actual cornbread. Other highlights -gluten free cornbread, gluten free menus. Recommend making reservations as they are always busy. It is also fun to sit at the bar area for dinner. My husband says the BBQ is very good too....that says a lot

    We came in for the last day of Eat LBC, and all ordered from the special menu. Our appetizers were the BBQ Chop House Salad and the Onion Straw Brick. The salad had greens, tomatoes, jicama, corn, black beans, tortilla strips and a bbq ranch. It had a nice variety of flavor and textures. The onion brick was just onion rings, basically. Nothing outstanding, but I do love onion rings. For entrees, we had prime rib with side of chili, baby back ribs with mashed sweet potatoes, and grilled salmon with steamed veggies. The sides were mostly unremarkable, but the chili was full of flavor and had a nice spiciness. The prime rib was terrific, but the other entrees were lacking. The ribs were ok, but salmon was way overcooked.

    This trip we had appetizers ranging from the onion brick to artichokes that were all generous portions and very good. Entrees were ribs, prime rib and salmon. They were all yummy. Then we outdid ourselves with desserts. Everything from cheesecake, peanut butter chocolate pie to the house chocolate, peanut coated ice cream stick were brought to the table. We eat everything we could and took leftovers home for another day. Wow. What a feast for carnivores.

    We decided on Naples Rib Company for our Taste of Long Beach week. We saw the menu online. It offered choices in appetizers, entrees and dessert. I was able to make reservation online through Open Table. Very nice touch and easy to We both opted for the chopped salad. It was huge and we left some leaving room for the ribs we ordered. We had eaten some corn bread before the salad. Our ribs were delivered with a bucket for the bones. Along with one side you get asparagus and a slice of pineapple. My mixed vegetables were ok. The ribs were meaty and tasty not requiring any more sauce that was provided for us. You got seven ribs which was more than enough to enjoy. Peanut butter ice cream pie was terrific. Excellent service too!!

    Been here MANY times over the years. Baby back ribs are always excellent and other food is good to excellent. This time service was really slow. Waited 15 minutes after being seated to have anyone come to table. Then took a long time to get the appetizer/salads. When time for dessert, two in the party got theirs after about 10 minute wait but the 3rd person didn't get hers until 8 minutes later, when the first two were almost finished. Water glasses were never refilled although all were empty. I realize it was 'restaurant week' (although we got there at 4:15 p.m. and restaurant not full.). Service is typically attentive...just not on this visit.

    I really did enjoy the many set menu options that was provided during EatLBC Week...since I treated my 3 Sisters and a to-go meal, plus my Girl and Lil Girl. We all ordered different items and that allowed us to try a lot of what this Place had to offer at a very reasonable price for a 3 course meal. The service was great and very attentive, since I think I had 6 glasses of ice tea and not once did I have to ask for more tea. Plus their kid menu/child coloring pages and activities, with crayons...by far is better than most children friendly restaurants. If only I lived closure and not drive all the way from West LA..but well worth the trip.

    Same guy who finally came to acknowledge us also seated us, took our drink order and our dinner order. Problem was he also was working the bar and seating everyone who came in, answered the phone and served everyone in the place. It was frustrating waiting to ask a question about the menu, then when ready to order he was no where in sight. He went to get us a beer and came back 20-25 minutes later. Once we ordered things got better but don't expect to be well cared for, we felt alone even though it was not busy. The food was worth the lack of service. Great flavor. I had the St. Louis ribs and wow, outstanding.
