Bobby C's is the only waterfront restaurant in the area and perhaps because they are the only game in town - they seem to serve average fare with average service and pricey items at times. Have been there on a couple of occasions and would like to go back but need some better reviews from neighbours and friends before I... More

I have been at Bobby C's a couple times> The food is very basic, the presentation less than expected. The last time I dined there out of five choices for dessert they were out of three, so I passed. The coffee tasted like instant coffee and the service was slow. It's probably good for the younger generation for drinks and... More

The marina has the best deck around! They often have music on the weekends. Great place to have a drink and a snack in the summer. I have found the food up and down over the years. It is big enough inside to accomodate parties inside and the staff has seemed good in the past.

In the summer, on the patio, not bad. The beer variety is limited. The menu? Depends on what you're into. I haven't had a good meal there in quite some time. In the winter months we don't even bother. Last time we had dinner - lobster and steak - the steak was burnt and the lobster was dry. The atmosphere... More

Bobby C's is an average pub and grill eatery in the Marina area of Bowmanville and it offers good tasty food at reasonable prices yet once the weather changes the inside is somewhat dark and basic for a pub/restaurant. Highly recommended for the summer months as a place to go and hang out on the water with good food and... More

arrived at 11:30; waitress didn't get to the table for 10 minutes; ordered the hamburger with peameal bacon; tasty but both mine & my Aunt's fell apart bun & all after one bite! Service terribly slow & she didn't come back to check on how everything was; disappointing to say the least.

I live in Bowmanville and each summer we go to Bobby C's several times for a nice meal. I really enjoy the fish and chips and the beautiful location alongside the marina and near the lake. I highly recommend eating during the summer months on the patio. Prices are not too bad and I think the entire eating experience at... More

Have been here a few times for dinner and lunch. Also for special events, New Years, wedding dinners etc. Very good food, staff was great and the view doesn't hurt either.

Went for dinner had a nice meal, but maybe a bit expensive. Had a wobbly table & not so attractive tablecloth. I would have liked it if the lighting was a little dimmer. I would still go back again.

My retirement party was held at Bobby C's and everyone had a wonderful time. Our immediate family stayed for supper - prices are great and so is the food. The patio in the summer is beautiful. Something on the menu for everyone.
