We went there as a large 150 group for a high school band, everything was set up months ago! When we arrived we were taken to one side of the building, there were not enough seats for everyone to sit and we were scattered between 2 rooms, after almost 1/2 hour they set up an extra table. They were not... More

I ate here for the first time with my family on a Saturday night before the Griffins game. We were told it would be a 20 minute wait that ended up being 30 minutes. We were right by the kitchen and I couldn't believe how much food was up but waiting for a long time to go out as we... More

I am very sorry to hear that your nachos arrived cold before the game! We strive to have really high standards, and it seems we may have missed the mark. I'm glad to hear that the manager attempted to try to make up for this, but we'd love to turn your 2 star review into a 5 star review. Please... More

By far the worst dinning experience we ever had . Purchased a Fox 17 $50 voucher online , then made dinner reservations at 7:00 in Bobarino's for our wedding anniversary. First off there is none or very little Handicap parking next we could not find any Waite staff at the front door, at least 10 min. standing there with no... More

We stopped in at Bobarino's during ArtPrize. We had a group of six and were waited on by Michaela (sp?) who was great! Even though she appeared to be pretty swamped, we were never waiting long to order more drinks or food. The appetizers were great, the burger was fantasic, but man, do they know how to mix a drink!... More

We just wandered into this restaurant - in the BOB ( big old building). It looks like a more authentic TGIFs with better food. There's a dining area - or two - with booths overlooking town (on the second floor) and a funky bar that looked like fun! We had Mac and cheese, a really good seafood pasta and a... More

This restaurant is open to the action of the Art Prize venue of the BOB with rooftop dining available. We particularly loved the perfectly done pizza which was served piping hot on a crisp crust. The Art Prize atmosphere swirled around us, but we were seated away from the action so it was quiet enough for conversation. The waiter was... More

We visited this restaurant in September and found it to be a really pleasant place to eat and experience great live music in downtown Grand Rapids. We were there on a Thursday night. The venue has dueling pianos on weekends, but since we were there on a weeknight, it was a single piano player, who is really talented and got... More
