Beautiful view but expensive

The view of the restaurant is beautiful but it is an extremely expensive restaurant with a small menu and very limited drink selection. I also find that it is always understaffed. All the servers seem great with helping each other. But everything seems to take longer there because of the lack of... read more

The menu is pretty extensive and I found quite a few things that looked good to order. The prices are reasonable and the patio really doesn't have a bad seat overlooking the Darlington marina dock and bay. Tuna steak was fresh and prepared in a pepper spice I had never had before. Really good. The veggies could have been better... More

Bobby C's is a wonderful restaurant bar on the water in Bowmanville. On our Toronto to Kingston Cycling Trips we try to stop here at the end of our day. The beer is cold and the food delicious. They have a great deck looking over the marina with plenty of umbrellas. the staff are friendly and it is worth the... More

I try this place every few years...the food is very average and the main draw is it is on the water. Eating outside is nice unless you have a day when their is a strong fish smell in the air. The good is a tad over priced for what you get. The service is good. Honestly just an average menu,... More

We had a gift certificate to Bobby C's and went on a beautiful warm day. The patio is fabulous, so relaxing. The staff are courteous and we had a great lunch. We went back two weeks later for a repeat.

I did not expect gourmet dining and actually came here for the location on the water and the view which I would score highly. I like the casual, relaxing , cottagie feel of this place. The food crab cakes were lacking in skill but the bruchetta was unique and yummie. The server was attentive and friendly. Put on your flip... More

We went and had a wonderfull meal that was served by a very friendly server. The only complant I would have is I think it is time for a little redo on the patio and deck. Other than that it was a great time.

loved eating by while overlooking the lake and boat docks Food is nothing more than average. The restaurant area is not the cleanest one I've been in and do not enjoy that greasy smell. Service is slow and when you just come for an hour lunch you better be ready to be late back to work
