Great hidden gem

Bobby Bistro is hidden behind the Beachcomber so it's difficult to find if you aren't aware of it. A couple of locals recommended and I'm glad they did. It's a quiet little place, when you walk in there is a bar on one side and a few booths but in the back is an open dining area that doesn't seem... read more

Tried to dine here recently because several years previously we used to eat here and have (had!) fond memories. We were unsure when we arrived whether to seat ourselves; as there was a couple lingering in front of us, we decided to wait. While staff were walking around us, nobody paid attention to either couple. We were eventually informed we... More

It was a rocky start with waiter. He was very cold to us at first. He was older baldish man. He ground pepper for locals but not for us. We had already finished our salads. Food was superb. Wine was superior. Waiter warmed toward end. I felt like he thought here we go mom and pop-no tippers. He was almost... More

A friend of ours with the Phillies recommended we check out Bobby's. Apparently it's one of the regular stops for the professional staff of the team during Spring Training. We had been to The Beachcomber and had found it very enjoyable if not potentially a bit stuffy. Bobby's on the other hand, has a much more relaxed vibe and would... More

Bobby’s Bistro and Wine Bar is an adjunct restaurant to its bigger brother, Bob Heilman’s Beachcomber Restaurant, which is a more upscale version located on Mandalay Ave. in Clearwater Beach, FL. As you turn east off of Mandalay Ave. on to Papaya St., then a left on Poinsettia Ave., and an immediate left turn into the parking lot behind The... More

Small place, great food, nice bistro. We sat at the bar. They have a great wine selection and the food is fresh, if not overly plentiful. We will definitely be back.

After arriving in Clearwater I decided to book a reservation at Bobby's Bistro. Once we arrived at the restaurant, we were politely greeted and seated quickly. I was seated in a very cozy and relaxed room. The food was great! They had a great variety of well-made salads. Also the pizza and deserts were fantastic! I would strongly recommend this... More

Not knowing what to expect - a totally delightful meal with excellent service for the same price as the local beach fast food places. Would have never known the restaurant was there but saw it in a local tourist magazine. Quality food, excellent service, wonderful decor and great prices

Love the "backroom" garden room of this hard to find wine bar behind the Beachcomber restaurant. This is perhaps my favorite of the few wine bars in the area. Try the shrimp appetizer - I could have licked the plate. The wine list is amazing. This is a must stop if you are a wine bar fan!!!

A cozy bistro with great food and beverages. We find the quality of the food and the service to be excellent. A bit difficult to find if you are a first time visitor...it is located behind The Beachcomber Restaurant.
