If it's delicious BBQ, in a dinner house that knows more than just great BBQ, Newport Rib Company is your place. Comfortable booths, a great bar with sports on the TV, and a staff so friendly you'll think that you’re part of the family...and you are. This local landmark has been serving BBQ’d specialties for over 30 years; slow roasted tri-tip, Prime rib, juicy steaks, stiff martini's and great salads all add up to a first-rate experience without the first-rate price. Come and find out why this family-owned business has become a MUST-have when visiting the Orange County area.

Try the onion brick or the grilled artichoke for appetizers, the BBQ’d chopped tri-tip or chicken salad is a health conscious favorite, but the meat is center stage at this one of a kind Costa Mesa institution.

Take-out, catering from 25 to 2500 guests, a banquet room which seats 80, large comfortable booths, and an environment that caters to our guests no matter if regulars or soon to be’s.

Our first time dining at Newport Rib Company. Celebrating Valentine's Day and so glad we came here. Prime Rib with Ribs and garlic mashed potatoes were amazing. Special of the day Halibut dinner and Chocolate Raspberry Soufle to finish the night. We will be back.

The ribs are literally the best in town and the portions are huge. Great sides to choose from. And if you don't like ribs they have great other options. My wife loves their kale salad with chicken. Very good service too!

I love the food st NRC. I take friends there for celebrations. Have never, in many visits, had a single item that was not delicious. The ambiance is very laid back, comfortable, family friendly, and very friendly staff. I highly recommend NBRC. The servings are always more than I can finish, and the quality of the meats they use are outstanding. I’d encourage anyone to try the Combos, as it really let’s you experience their array of .BBQ.
