I had specified a birthday yet there was no interaction on whose birthday or if there are any applicable deserts.
If mentioned on the reservation the restaurant should at least ask of the occasion.
The food was just ok & prices did not justify the experience or food.

Everything was lovely. Our neighbors were a bit loud but I think they were hard of hearing. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly, our food was perfect and delicious. The Chile was amazing.

I have been coming here for years on Valentine's Day. The ribs are tasty and worth it, I love quality of BBQ they have and an assortment to boot. Try it. You won't regret it.

We love Naples Rib Co, but were a little disappointed in the BBQ Brisket sandwiches.. the beef was a little too hard and crunchy on the edges and the bread seemed stale :(.

The only other complaint is that we were celebrating a birthday... and after our meal, one person in our party was asking a question about the frozen banana dessert, and the waitress said “Are you the birthday girl?!” I said, no and pointed to the birthday girl, who then said “oh, no that’s ok I’m full.” So that spoiled the surprise, and thus there was no token of celebration whatsoever.

For years I’ve just ordered the baby back ribs at Naples Ribs and they’ve always been excellent. This time, I decided to get the combo with the baby backs and prime rib. I didn’t expect the prime rib to be ok, because in most restaurants it has lots of fat and is overcooked. The one at Naples Ribs was not OK—it was PERFECT!!! No excess fat, cooked medium rare to perfection and really generous in size. And since it came with baby backs, I was able to take those home for dinner the next night. Our server was wonderful, too!

It was my son’s birthday drink refills, more napkins, two more spoons with the dessert as there were four of us with two spoons! Our server did her best but she was overwhelmed! Great food but this time we were disappointed!

Food came out wrong, we were sitting next to a party that was extremely loud I couldn’t even have a conversation, the section we sat in was extremely dirty with napkins and food all over the floor that I had to step over to get to my table and wasn’t cleaned up until we were almost done eating so it was ugly to look at all night. I want this night to be a special night for my boyfriend and it was just an overall very negative experience I will not be coming back

Everything was really good ,the service was great our waitress was on top of everything she made sure we had our drinks refilled ,if we needed anything , the only thing is I would ask that we not be seated next to any kids under the age of three . We were seated in a area where there were babies and toddlers crying and screaming and whining they gave me a headache , I tried to ignore them , you would think the parents would do something . They just sat and ignored them too . But other than that the food was good , I just wanted to hurry up and leave .

Historically one of favorite places for ribs. The last visit my ribs were not tender and were overcooked and more surprisingly the service was poor. I hope it is better next time

We came for New Year’s Eve, after a wonderful walk through the canals of Naples, which are beautifully decorated for the holidays. We were seated promptly, and our server, Martín, was very attentive.
Three of us chose the beef ribs, one the chopped salad with chicken. It took quite a while for the food to arrive, but it was really good! The ribs were minimally fatty, charred on the outside and still pink inside. Side dishes were plentiful.
There was more than enough food for all of us, but I, for one, will look forward to some leftover ribs. Happy New Year, indeed!

We have been here many times and it never disappoints. Food is consistently good but not over the top great. We were celebrating a 70th birthday but no acknowledgement received, not even a bowl of ice cream. That was a surprise. We’ll definitely go back but there are other similar restaurants equally good.

Naples Rib Company is the best bbq in LA/OC. The complimentary cornbread and honey butter is the perfect way to start your meal! My favorites are the baby back ribs, bbq chicken salad and the tri-tip. For sides the bbq beans and garlic mashed potatoes are delicious. The service is always top notch and you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu!!

Went to Naples Rib Company after the Naples Christmas Boat Parade and the restaurant was bustling. We had a 3-meat platter with beef brisket, baby back ribs, and barbecued shrimp. Everything was very tasty. The roasted vegetables were OK and the mashed potatoes came out a little cold, but overall we really enjoyed the experience.

Went there for my husbands birthday dinner. My husband and I don’t mind noise but this place was really loud. The waitress did not come over for quite awhile. We understand they were busy but she didn’t acknowledge us until she must of notice that we were getting ready to leave. When we received our food the corn on cob was cold bake beans were cold the ribs were tuff and warm. We paid the bill no tip and left.

My wife and I recently had our 11th wedding anniversary dinner at Naples Rib Company. We’ve been frequenters of the restaurant since my wife had her baby shower there 8 years ago. I have never been disappointed with the food there and I am still blown away by the ribs. My wife confessed to not liking ribs before trying Naples, and she’s loved them ever since. Thank you for another great anniversary dinner.
