Great service

We arrived about 30 minutes before closing and were the only customers, but the gals gladly served us. Servings of ice cream were generous.

We stopped in at about 1 p.m. on a weekday. They were out of the whitefish that I wanted so ordered shrimp basket ($12.99 and small frozen shrimp). You order at the cash register and it is brought to you. The décor is 50s and so is the music. They were fairly busy for the time we stopped in. They... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our burgers - the meat had a great flavor, juicy without being greasy; the accompanying lettuce, onion, and pickle slices were fresh and added to the quality of the burger. The side orders of fries and onion rings were generous and tasty as well. A root beer float and strawberry smoothie completed the meal, and were very... More

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
