Unplanned Friday evening with out of town friends at Bobby C's

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... read 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.

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

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
