Always a good bet in Faibanks

Twice in December and enjoyable both times. The best stuffed grape leaves anywhere, spanakopita with light flaky layers, pasticio, gyros, rack of lamb. You cannot go wrong here. Have a drink at the bar with the heated rail! Owner Bobby is always around to ensure great service and consistent food.

I had never eaten at Bobby's until the other night. Not sure why I kept driving by this place, but it was highly recommended by a friend, so we decided to try it. My first thoughts, great relaxed atmosphere with Greek style architecture and furnishings, Top notch service from our waitress, and this place is super clean... even the restrooms... More

If you want a nice table with really good food, then it is a really good place to go. The menu has lots of choice and the food is really tasty. The price can seem a little expensive but it is worth it.

Definitely not worth the price. Food was par at best. I have had a better steak at Texas Roadhouse. I probably will not back.

1st I'll say I was pleased to find a good parking space at this Restaurant in downtown Fairbanks. We arrived with another Couple to a pleasant roomy dining area with full bar attached. Our waitress took our drink orders and they were delivered within a very short period. Our entrées were ordered and delivered buy a very friendly waitress. We... More

This is a good Greek place with a large variety of dishes on the menu. Some of the dishes seemed pricey but after visiting some other restaurants in Fairbanks it seems to be in line with the general trend. I had the swordfish and it was good.

This is an excellent place with good food, an unique ambiance. There is a well appointed bar, and nicely furnished with spacious seating areas. There are three areas which might be considered for groups or events, and the decor is presented with a touch of Class. I enjoyed the evening with the classical Greek music. I do not know if...

The only place I will eat lamb. It is truly delicious. Cocktails are always strong and enjoyable. By far, favorite restaurant in Fairbanks.

A typical Greek restaurant, both in decor and menu. Many traditional choices, all well prepared with attentive service. Very enjoyable meals for a group of 5.
