It's hit and miss on the food, but a nice outdoor setting

Had the roast beef dinner. The medium cut was overdone and dry. The Lorraine salad was nice with the oranges and almonds. We have eaten here and have had drinks several times over the years and it's seems to be hit and miss on the food.

I moved to Bowmanville in Dec 2014, waited through a long winter just to visit Bobby Cs as I love being by the water. We sat outside overlooking the marina, waiting for some one to show up, they didn't, so I went in a young man making salads finely says can I help you sir, I said yes we are... More

First time for us. Food was average but definitely not worth the price. Will admit that the service was very good. Place is very old and dingy. There was an overly loud party that was disturbing everyone in the restaurant...they let their kids use the place as a playground ..many people at surrounding tables complained as no one could hear...

Great dockside atmosphere inside and out. Patio is terrific on a nice day as it is right on the water. Even sitting inside the water is clearly visible and right there.

We decided to go to Bobby C's for my daughters birthday celebration because I have had good experiences there in the past.. This time, not so much. Sadly disappointed. And I am starting to get very tired of restaurants passing off their substandard food as meals and immensely overcharging for it! Service was decent - and I apologize to the... More

love this place for everything. The food is really good but the best part is the patio. It overlooks the marina beside Lake Ontario where on a really hot day you can get a lovely breeze of the lake while you have a cold one and some good food. The music is good and the funny signs around the patio... More

Nice location, but food is average. Okay for a first date, but not if you want to impress. Service was good. Very dark at the back of the restaurant.

Way too expensive for the quality of the food! They have a nice waterfront location but it's not as nice as it should be for their prices. The place is in need of renovations! Food ok. Service ok.
