Went last night for a birthday dinner. My ribs were cold, people that had surf and turf say lobster was ovrrbaked and steaks were chewy. We were freezing all night. Best things were the margarita and the service. Waitresses were very good. Might be a nice place in the summer but should consider closing in the winter.

I really should have known better .....but I went with friends anyway. In the first 20 minutes, we looked at each other and chatted because absolutely nobody came to take our drink orders. When he did - it was another 10 - 15 to get them. There were 2 wait staff on for at least 7 to 8 tables and... More

A party of 5 of us went here for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised. Everyone enjoyed the meal. It was pretty quiet but the service was great. I look forward to eating here in the summer as the patio looks really nice. It was very affordable and a place we will definitely visit again.

So NOT the place it use to be! Can't really say anything positive ... Except it's nice to look out over the lake.

Brought my wife and 2 daughters for a late lunch and was pleasantly surprised that my daughter was allowed to order the prime rib at 2pm. Food was great and we were all very happy to bring home a good portion after having apps, mains and dessert. Martini was slightly disappointing, but I do have high standards when it comes... More

I used to look forward to going to Bobby Cs. This visit was terrible. A large group of friends out for a birthday. One waiter to serve us all. Forgot our drinks. I asked for no bun, just a few fries, and extra tomato and lettuce with a salmon burger and he looked at me as if I was from... More

Bobby C's used to be one of our favourite places to go for a romantic dinner, family dinner, quick lunch, and even our business Christmas party. We loved the beautiful view of the marina and the atmosphere in the restaurant. A few years ago it went downhill, service and food was lacking, so we chose other dining locations. This year... More

Varied menu - not too sophisticated but good salads and burgers. Gets busy and a bit noisy Saturday nights

Service was horrible. I asked how they garnish their Caesars and the server looked t me like I had 3 heads, Order the steak and lobster. The lobster was over cooked and tough. I order a medium rare steak and ask for horseradish and again I got a cynical look. The horseradish never came, my son had the kid menu... More

Great food, good value, great atmosphere, outside patio, great Monte Cristo coffees. Delicious dessert cakes. Susan is a real super social waitress. You can ask that she serve you and sit in her area. Been doing it for years. Go and enjoy!
