Just average

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.

Nice, experienced servers, great food and overall pleasant atmosphere. The view is great but you might want to seat inside because of the bugs (one downfall of it being so close to the water...)

Was attending a birthday party with approximately 45 guests. Even though reservations were made months in advance only one waitress was assigned to our entire section. The waitress herself was very good but was unable to keep up with orders. Nor her fault at all. Because of manager failing to staff properly some people got their food over an HOUR... More

We had a group of 40 of us for a birthday party.. with one server and the bartender "helping out".. did not see one other staff member all night. No manager came by to see if everything was ok.. and from first order being taken until the last table received their food was 2 full hours.. we had guests finished... More

Worst place I have ever been too. Party booked for around 70 people, room was freezing, we kept coats on all evening, one bartender only! Ceiling looks like black lint that would fall into your glasses, toilets were loose and dangerous to sit on. Not clean, very creepy spot. Really people go somewhere else, the upstairs bar was warm but... More

We have been at this restaurant several times no matter what the season. The steak and lobster special for two at $44.95 is very popular. Steak is always cooked to perfection to our liking as specified and the lobster is a meaty portion. I love the atmosphere, makes me feel warm and comfortable. The garlic mashed potatoes are excellent as... More

Bobby C's has been one of Bowmanville's best establishments for years. The service is fantastic, the food is great and the best part of Bobby C's is the setting, a beautiful smal town marina setting. Worth the drive 2 minutes off Highway 401 at Liberty street.

Last time we went there was a Friday night and was with my sis and our cousin both from out town. It was quite busy when we but we sat at the outside bar, had a drink and waited for a seat outside which we got in about 15 minutes. We ordered our food and another round of drinks and... More

Looking over the latest reviews, one would think the place was a dump but we found it very good. It wasn't very busy (maybe people are reading some of these reviews!) but the service was great! Actually, we were a little early for the dinner hour and the restaurant was quickly filling up. Our food was delicious and quite ample.... More
