Went there with visitors, outside terrace was full and had a long wait so we decided to dine inside. The Food was terrible. How you mess up cooking a steak I will never know. Others had pasta and it was passable but my sons Pizza had so much cheese on it, it wasn't even cooked through. My son also had... More

Decided to give this place a try as we wanted something different and hear some good reports about it and thought it would be a nice place to go to look out on the marina. Did not want to sit outside on the patio so we sat in the dining room. Absolutely no ambiance there! Tippy table but it was... More

This patio was large and had lots of shade from trees so it had a Mediterranean feel. Our gourmet burgers were quite good and the service very prompt. We enjoyed the ambiance of the harbour side and boats. I would recommend it as a nice place to meet friends for atmosphere most of all.

As a place to get off your boat from then Bobby C's may work for you. The Stella was good but for a Coors Light they gave my brother in law a plastic cup. The waitress simply stated no one was doing dishes. Your life would still be complete if you did not eat here. Mixed reviews on the food,... More

This restaurant has a really nice patio, lots of shade for those hot sunny days and it overlooks the marina. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. I had the blue cheese burger, that had a lot of blue cheese on it. It was all beef, no filler, very tasty. My son had the sliders, you get 4... More

View is all this dockside restaurant has now. Needs some huge sprucing up inside and out. Cobwebs and broken furniture along with dirty bathrooms. To the manager/ owner of Bobby C's, where did you find your staff and who the heck trained them? The place was practically empty last Sat. yet nobody would seat customers in a timely manner. We...

Food was good but service was very bad. We were the only ones in the dining room and it took forever to get drinks and our bill.

I have eaten here several times in the past, often with large groups, but just the two of us now and then and had wonderful food and service. Today was the worst experience I have had at a restaurant! I ordered a prime rib beef dip and after about an hour got a steak sandwich in error - it was... More

VERY disappointed on my lunch visit today with friends!! Bobby C's is a great spot on the waterfront with a fantastic patio. I have eaten there before and ordered the mussels in beer and jalapeno broth. The best I can say is that it was terrible but thought I'd give them the benefit of the doubt and ordered lunch today....
