Wonderful Food

Bobby's Bistro was a great location for our son's Rehearsal Dinner. Appetizers were wonderful and well prepared. Our food was hot and delicious. My daughter and I had the Grilled Salmon. Others in the party had the Grilled Pork Chops and said they were the best pork chops they'd ever had. I would... read more

While Bob Heilmans Beachcomber (in front of the Bistro) is very good and we would recommend it also, Bobby's Bistro and Wine Bar is a FAVORITE of ours. Tonight we had the grouper sandwich which was HUGE and so fresh and fantastic just unbelievable! The "Bistro" is a bit more laid back than the Beachcomber and not quite as pricey.... More

Enjoyed a birthday dinner with another couple on the 4th of July. Food and service were good. Mai Tai is strong.

This is a very nice place with an interesting menu, lots of good wines, and an elegant, yet casual environment.

A unique establishment boasting a wine list like no other! The host and servers are super! A fresh basket of warm bread while you look over the wine list and menu. First visit I had the awesome French Onion Soup, my entree was a seasoned grilled chicken breast sandwich with sides. My cousin had the French Onion Soup and a... More

Located behind the Beachcomber is this small restaurant. Tremendous wine menu, great service, and amazing food! Highly recommend for a couples night out or celebrating a birthday. The filet was amazing. Kids loved the burgers. Portions were perfect! Highly recommend!

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

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
