Naples Rib is a bright star among possible Long Beach dining experiences. The food is great. The company is extremely generous in supporting local charities and the college. We have always enjoyed going there and this time our waiter was absolutely spectacular. We had a really lovely evening.

Back room was warm. Had to ask staff to turn up ac. Restaurant should monitor these things and not be asked by a customer.

We don’t like sitting in the back room because of the noise and inattentive staff. Seem every time we sit back there service is lacking. The shape of the room make it hard to see customers. Knowing this, the staff need to be more attentive if they work that room. Can’t disappear for 10/15min at a time.

We were greeted right away by the hostess and made to feel welcome. The baby back ribs and steaks were delicious.
Parking is by valet at a very reasonable price ($4).
The atmosphere is casual and a bit noisy but the service was excellent.

We had a reservation for 6 p.m. for 5 of us. One of our party was in a wheelchair. We weren't seated for 45 minutes. The delay was because they were trying to find a good table for us that had wheelchair access. They were so nice after the wait and even gave us a free appetizer.

I had pulled pork and prime rib sliders. I wasn't impressed with the pulled pork and the prime rib was too dry. My husband had the tri tip. He prefers to have it served sliced. But, I had it for leftovers today and it was very tasty.

My friends all had the prime rib. I think that is what I would choose the next time we go.

There was also a fun magician, Todd, keeping us entertained while we waited.

The restaurant was very good. It was a little dark and the tables were sort of small for the plate sizes, but overall it was a good experience because the service was great and the food was also outstanding and delicious! We took an old friend out who was in town and we had a very good time!

Half off wine, seated write away, bread for the savage beasts, and that was just the starters. I have eaten Naples Ribs caters, so I knew what to expect, however, I was blown away. We took my husband’s daughter, husband, and the kids (from, Texas) and they loved it! The Valet parking and cloth napkins through them off, but the ribs and brisket brought it all home. The service was impeccable!

Food was good and our waitress was great, very friendly. The hostess couldn’t be more annoyed if she tried. I made reservation for 7:30pm on 4 of July evening I did not know NRC closed at 8pm that day so when I arrived to check in the hostess looked at us as if were there to make her life miserable. She was incredibly rude and only opened her mouth to say We close at 8pm today. I responded with an okay thank you. Then she looked at us and expected us to leave. Perhaps she had a long day or was having a bad shift but for being the first face people will see they should have someone with a welcoming attitude.

We picked the wrong day to come by --July 4, but it was my daughter's birthday. Very busy and crowded, and very noisy. Lots of take-out orders and some event outside the restaurant "crushed" the kitchen. This caused significant delays in getting our food, and the kids' dishes came out even later than the adults' dishes when it should have been the other way around. The cornbread is excellent. The ribs were very good but I have had better. Family members said the steaks were good. A "side order" of vegetables was puny. The experience would have been much better if it wasn't so crowded.

Took friends from Ireland to Naples for a 50th celebration! Food was amazing, everyone loved it especially the kids! They loved that they got such a great selection not just typical MacNeil cheese etc, perfect portions for kids. Loved the atmosphere and the staff were great! Their standards didn’t slip considering it was such a busy night! And on the plus we got to walk outside and watch the bang at the bay fireworks!! Great night thanks

The food was great and cooked as ordered and yes we did have a few picky eaters with special requests in our group of 5. They indicate low gluten items right on the menu which helped one of our guests and everyone was happy. Service was a little slow but good. The speed issue was primarily because they were pretty busy. They have a great menu with many options.

We made reservations and our table was ready on time. If anything we were about 7 minutes late from our reservation time, but they still sat some people from our party as the rest of us arrived. It was a total of 8 people. The service was good, and the food was delicious. We enjoy their bbq sauce so much that we purchased 2 bottles to go. We will be returning.

You can’t go wrong with a classic full rack of baby back ribs, cole slaw and baked beans from Naples Ribs - Start with an artichoke and an onion loaf appetizer. Grab your favorite beverage - my choice was a draft of Guinness Stout. Add the chocolate dipped banana for a tasty desert... there is a varied menu with different portions for both light and big eaters - all at a good value. Bring a couple of friends and it all adds up to a good evening out.

The ribs are the best but this time I tried the Prime Rib. They brought it out cooked as a steak might be...crispy on the outside and I have never had it that way before. I usually eat about 1/3 of my meat as I love the taste but get full fast. I devoured it! I want to go back soon and it will be difficult now deciding between the ribs and prime rib but I am leaning towards that fabulous Prime Rib!
They also served my sister a Mouse Cake complimentary for her birthday....that made it extra nice. Naples Rib Co. is my favorite restaurant! Every time I bring my out of town guest there, they ask to go back on their returning trips.

I have been to Newport Rib Company their other restaurant, so I have been wanting to try Naples Rib Company, I was impressed with the lay out of the restaurant at Naples Rib Company, it seemed to be more comfortable, and relaxing, the staff was friendly and nice. I ordered the appetizer #1 which gave us a great assortment and it was delicious, and just about a meal in itself. I ordered the senior rib baby back rib meal, I thought the ribs were a little skimpy on the meat, my friend ordered the regular baby back rib meal, and had a lot more meat on his ribs, so he shared his ribs with me. We went for a birthday, and they brought us a nice birthday treat to celebrate the birthday. I would go back, to try other items on the menu.

I have been there numerous times and I LOVE their Baby Backs. This time the Onion Stack was greasy and undercooked. The sausage was fabulous! The baked spud had black spots on all three of our spuds and was hard and starchy. The service was pretty good as we asked other servers than ours for items.
