What has happened to the BOB? Sat at the bar in Bobarinos for pizza and a beer. Not only were we not greeted but the bartender waited on a couple who sat down after us and when I objected, he curtly replied: I'm getting to you. This is not the first time we have received poor service at this spot.... 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

We made a reservation for a Friday night at 7:30 but really didn't need it. There were plenty of tables open when we arrived. We were there during restaurant week and had their special menu items. The food was delicious - perfectly prepared. The wait staff was friendly and took care of our needs, but it was a long time... More

This was a special event in an upstairs special room, not a regular visit. So, a fixed menu. But everything was excellent, had attentive and friendly servers, special diet accommodations, and so on. The food was all great and nicely prepared. Melt in your mouth roast beef and juicy chicken, great sides, a very nice visit.

Ended up at Bobarino's for dinner before a concert, the whole BOB was busy but we got a table for 5 without a wait. The service was good considering the amount of people in the place and the food did not disappoint. Two diners said their burgers were spectacular and the Queen of Quesadilla's crowned this one to be the... More

Just a short walk from the beautiful river walk is the b.o.b. A fantastic old building with tons of character! We went to bobarinos for our first dueling pianos experience. Although it was a little loud once the music started the musicians were great. Greg our waiter was amazing! I had ordered a salad to be brought out before my... More
