We love Newport Rib! We had a catered birthday party for my son and everything was gluten free except for the corn bread. They brought me 6 gf corn bread muffins in a separate container. The owners have a special interest in keeping gluten free items safe for Celiacs. Great food!!

The owner has issues with gluten, so most of their food is or can be made gluten free. The ribs and BBQ sauce are excellent.

The amount of gf options were amazing! Staff super knowledgeable and friendly. Server caught the croutons and cheese on my salad I didn’t even think about to ask to be removed. The Gluten free ribs and cornbread were amazing! Will return every-time in town!!! Owner on site, friendly, and very knowledgeable!

Absolutely amazing!! In the area for our family Christmas holidays and went here for New Year's Eve dinner. Friendly staff, very knowledgeable about GF safety, delicious, mouth-watering ribs, crunchy green salad, and the GF cornbread muffins are to die for! They even bake them in different shaped pans from the glutinous ones so there's no mix up. Would definitely go back the next time we're in town!

Ate here this evening with my husband and 11 year old daughter who has celiac. The food was amazing. Gluten free choices were abundant. GF corn bread was very good. My daughter had chicken and french fries. They use a separate fryer so they were safe. We will definitely come back the next time we are in town

I was very impressed. When I called to order my party pack, they explained what was (bbq sauce) and wasn't (a few sides) GF. The GF corn muffins were pretty good, and the entire meal was delicious. I was totally confident my meal was GF.

Tasty and was so nice to have the GF corn muffins to start. Our server even brought me dairy free butter for my muffins! I had ribs and brisket and my daughter (also celiac) had the Cobb salad with a side of fries!

An amazing place to go if you are gluten free or not! Over half the menu is naturally gluten free. The baby back ribs were excellent - probably the best I have ever had! Great choices - ribs, chicken, steak and seafood. The best was the grilled artichoke appetizer with 3 sauces.

Ribs were great as was the gluten free cornbread, but there were mixups with the sides causing doubts in care and safety.

Very delicious food. Menu clearly shows your gf options or tells you to ask your server if it can be made gf with a substitute, which they may not always have. I was hoping to have their corn bread but it was all gone.

Love this place but this time the waitress put the gf cornbread in a basket with regular corn bread. Usually it is served separate and by a different waiter.

Excellent barbecue, with all the classics like ribs, steak, potato salad, beans, etc being gluten free. They even have GF cornbread! Staff is very knowledgable, and it's one of my favorite places to eat in Orange County. I have Celiacs and have never gotten sick there. Great restaurant!

Went in last night for dinner. The first rib combo is delicious. It comes with gluten-free corn bread and I had a Redbridge beer and grilled artichokes. Naples is amazing!

they are amazing here. staff is well informed and will make sure everything your meal comes with is ok for you to eat! Love their ribs!! my only issue was that I didn't care for the gf cornbread I got that night. I plan on trying it again next time I go to see if the first time was just a dry/crispy batch. highly recommend!

We were on Irvine and wanted a good meal. We found this restaurant. OMG, it is sooooo good, the portions are large and the service was great too. And the warm lemon-scented cloth at the end of the meal was a definitely a plus. We definitely will come back when we return to Orange County
