Giant icecream custard

We stopped here for some icecream after riding Little Traverse Wheelway rail-to-trail. It was a treat - if a little on the generous size in terms of portion size. A medium here is more like a large dairy queen cone or a double scoop of icecream. Costs the same as 2 scoops too. Tasted great.

Great malts. Enough to share and so thick, so order two spoons and no straws. We like the raspberry malt. Look in the refrigerator and see the pints and quarts of ice cream. Outstanding flavors.

I want to stop in every time I go by! I wasn't familiar with frozen custard but this is smooth and creamy and delicious! Best sundae ever. Clean, friendly little place.

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

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
