Retiree brunch

Food was good, served by friendly staff. Nice setting down at Port Darlington. Place looks like it was once the happening spot. If you are tired of the commercial places than this is a nice alternative.

Our favourite spit in bowmanville. Especially in the summer. Best patio. We go all the time. We even had our wedding reception there too upstairs. It's a little hot in rhe banquet hall but great view. Get a burger or an app.mmmm!

So, you're sitting there on this pleasant patio enjoying the view of the marina and the food (and the waitresses are nice too) ....... then the music starts. As always the guys that play at these sort of places are deaf and have to keep the volume at full tilt so they can hear it themselves. Meanwhile, the poor patrons... More

Bobby C's has great ambience when dining outside in the summer on the deck. The service is very good and we enjoy the atmosphere. The food is average and they have a good selection of beverages. You can also dine inside when the weather is inclement.

The view from the outside eating area is beautiful. Can be chilly with the breeze off the lake so bring a sweater. Food was delicious, service was what you'd expect if a decent restaurant and the staff was friendly. Reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

Our poker club hosted a tournament upstairs at Bobby C's and it was a great venue. Beautiful location and the restaurant set up a bar and provided a bar tender. A lot of the players ate lunch downstairs and the food was good and the wait wasn't too long.

I've been to Bobby C's numerous times over the years and have enjoyed every single lunch or dinner spent on their patio. With it's view of the marina during the day, sunsets and boat lights reflecting off the water in the evenings, I can't think of a more inviting and relaxing place to have a meal with friends. The atmosphere... More

Last week our family introduced us to this restaurant on the marina.The food was very good.Service however was very slow, considering it was not full house. Our waitress thought it was sweet to call me ,a senior, young lady..very demeaning in my estimate. The rest of the evening she called us all honey...also demeaning. This obviously is a pretty popular... More

Tucked into a marina near the lake, Bobby C's was better than it had to be. We were there on a Tuesday -- wing night, and the place was crowded. I had fish and chips, which were delectable: lightly battered and lightly fried bass. Very reasonably priced.
