Theme restaurant-good to the kids

My 10 year old son and I had just completed a 50 mile bike ride ( his first time pedaling the whole way), and we stopped here to celebrate. We were pretty hungry and ordered some food and when the waitress found out what my son had done, she brought him a Root-beer float for free. It was very... read more

Every time we are in the area we stop at the Bob In. When I was a young child in Bay View, my parents would take us kids to the original Bob Inn. The Bob In Again is a wonderful place I now take my grand kids. Great ice cream, great service, a wonderful staff and the owner is extremely... More

Great food and priced very reasonable. Decorated like an old fashioned ice cream palour, it is a fun place to visit. We enjoy it every time we are in the area.

We stopped in while riding the bike trail. Burger was served dry (no sauce), not grilled but rather seemed microwaved and watery which soaked the bun, soggy yuck. Should be embarrassed to serve it that way. Plus it included no sides at $6.99; side of fries was $1.99 for less than a handfull of fries. Also noted the restroom was... More

Thanks for stopping and thanks for taking the time to review. I'm sorry that you were disappointed with the burger. We cook all burgers on a grill, served with Lettuce, Tomato, Pickle, Onion, and Mayo on the side on a steamed bun unless our guest asks us to prepare differently. Thanks for visiting Petoskey and riding the bike trail. We... More

Stopped here last evening and had the custard cone of the day: blueberry cheesecake. It was OK but nothing I'd return for. Too many chunks of dough in the custard. I also thought it was pricey for the size of the cone. The waitresses need to practice their listening skills. I asked for the plain cone and got a waffle... More

Thanks for writing a review and Bobbing-In! I'm so glad that we were able to help you "feel like a kid again!" That's what it's all about! I am sorry that there were too many bites of cheesecake in the blueberry cheesecake frozen custard. I will work with staff to put less pieces of cheesecake in the frozen custard in... More

Had never tried frozen custard, so we stopped, so glad we did, the chocolate concrete with Butterfingers was excellent, then went to the sunset park for sunset pictures,

I've been to the Bob In a handful of times, and every time have been disappointed. I have not once been greeted with a smile, and questions I have asked about the menu have not been responded to warmly. The ice cream is good, but very pricey. Go to D&W down the road and buy a pint of Ben and... More

Thanks for writing the review and for you multiple trips to the Bob-In. I'm sorry that our service fell short of your expectation. If you have questions please ask for me personally, Robert Rogier, I'm the owner and best question answerer. We hope you are able to Bob-In Again soon! More

GREAT stuff! Simple and fast. Many choices and frozen custard to fix that sweet tooth! You can sit outside in the summer and bike up to the place from the local area. Service is great and friendly! 50's themed makes you feel like your back in time!

If looking for a mom and pop type ice cream parlor, then you can get the usual menu items at this location. You can take your delight on a stroll south along the bluff for a beautiful view of the bay as well.

My husband & I stopped in for lunch on our visit to petoskey. It's a cute little place but I was disappointed in the food. My hamburger was $6 - that did not include anything - was barely warm. I would probably not come back
