We went to this restaurant completely by accident and so glad we did. We sat at the bar and the service from the staff was amazing. In particular a rather dashing fella called Rudy who couldn't do enough for us. After our rather large cocktails from pineapples and a blue drink as big asy head.. We were delighted to watch...

I was traveling on business and had an early dinner at the bar at Bobby Q. The bartender was awesome! Great food and great service. Definitely recommended.

Bobby Q is definitively overrated on TA! Do not expect anything special... The food is decent, but nothing more than any average grill restaurant. My Smoked prime rib (14 ounces, at least ordered) was too much cooked and dry, even though I insisted on having it rare. "Pecan cole slaw" was not really pecan, it was simply regular walnuts. The...

Made a reservation for 6 a week ahead of time. When we arrived at the restaurant (on time) they told us they would seat us in a half hour. What's the point of a reservation if they are not going to seat you when you requested. Felt rushed the entire time. Waitress was friendly but continually pushed us along for... More

I found Bobby Q based on TA ratings and booked a table for 11. It was an outstanding place for a group. Service was very attentive, menu diverse enough for the whole group without being overwhelming. Appetizers were really good and the ribs, which most of us had, were among the best any of us have had. Home brew beer... More

Our family had ribs, steak and shrimp entrees. All were great. The baby back ribs melted off the bone! The sides were also delicious--roasted corn, mashed potatoes, and slaw. The local beer was very good. Our server was attentive and quick. A real treat!

I got the food packaged to go, and I sincerely regret that. The restaurant is very cool looking. The barbecue brisket was some of the best I have ever had. I wish I had ordered more! The sides were pretty good but the meat was the real star. I wish I lived closer to have the delicious food more often.... More

We visited in late Dec be sure to phone ahead for a reservation or use open table as it gets fairly busy. We had an open table reservation and were seated right away. We had the Sirloin steak which was good, beef brisket and beef rib combo which was excellent and the Smokehouse Burger which was also excellent if you... More

I had the baby backs - truly the best I've ever had. My wife really enjoyed the rotisserie chicken and we all enjoyed the service and atmosphere. We accepted an offer for extra sauce and ended up eating what was intended for a snack the next day. We;re on a mission to try the rest of the menu items in... More
