Front desk at our hotel said Bobby's had great Greek food. What we were served was not Greek and I'm not sure it was really food. Wait staff was slow and rude and prices way too high for what was provided.

We ate lunch based upon a recommendation by a local. The food was very good. Service excellent. The desserts were wonderful! And check out the women's bathroom! Love it--- we will now compare all to Bobby's! ha ha

I was looking for some good food in the downtown area and at least three locals advised me to try this place. It has a Greek "Kitch" decor interior and exterior but the service is very good and the food is great! Try the Spanakopita it's amazing. This is a pricey place and most dishes range from $15.00 to $30.00... More

We tried Bobby's out since it was close to our hotel. Our server was great and offered up good suggestions for meals. My wife had the Spanikopota and I joined our third guest in ordering up the fried halibut planks. The food was fabulous from salad to dessert. Did not think the prices were out of line even at Alaskan... More

The food is great but beware THE OWNER SMOKES INSIDE. I was completely thrown off by all the smoke in the building. If you can handle a smokey place then go for it but I can't and watching the owner light up in front of me was not ok.

Entry via smokey bar/entrance almost caused us to walk out. Once in the weird, huge dining room, we enjoyed both a good meal and good service - enjoyable enough that we were going to return the following night, a Sunday they were closed.

Bobby is great. Staff is warm. Food is excellent. Smoking gets on my nerves. Lots of regulars who make you feel welcome.

We ate at this restaurant because it was close to our hotel. The service was ridiculously slow and the food was nothing that would bring us back again. It was very expensive ($80 for two)

We were looking forward to a Greek lunch, but were very disappointed. The meal was edible, but not worth the trip there. My food was overdone and parts of it was slightly burned. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

An unexpected surprise. I had a glass of wine and the seafood salad stuffed avocado with a side of pita bread. The pita was absolutely perfect. The seafood stuffed avocado was wonderful but my only complaint is that it was really very messy to try to eat. The avocado wasn't cut free from the skin and with the seafood salad... More
