Our favorite meals were the lamb chops very tasty and big portions. The mussels were really good too. Pricey.

We live in New York and since Bobby's Downtown is in Fairbanks, AK, we won't need to worry about going here again. But to spare others our experience, I'l say a bit about it. We told someone at the front desk of our hotel that we wanted fresh seafood - especially halibut - for dinner. The person recommended Bobby's and... More

We ended up here because most places were closed at 9:00 p.m. and we love Greek food. The hostess (a fellow Canadian and part owner) was lovely as was our server (local young lady whose name escapes me). The restaurant part was quite empty but the bar had a good crowd. We ordered calamari and tzatziki and the Green Goddess... More

Discovered this truly splendid restaurant through a brochure at the Visitor's Center in Fairbanks. The restaurant's interior decor along with the Greek music set the atmosphere for an especially delightful mouth watering lunch. The service is nothing short of outstanding. Being 1/2 Greek myself, it was enjoyable to have Bobby and his sister, the owners, spend time visiting with my... More

Like most Fairbanks restaurants, this one is no exception. It is sub par and they charge way too much. I have eaten at many restaurants and payed the same amount for outstanding food. Don't do it.

My husband and I ate here on a whim one night and were not disappointed. I ordered a pizza-it came out hot, fresh,and the crust was to die for. It was better than the Italian place across the street could ever put together. My husband ordered a pasta dish that was like lasagna but with macaroni noodles-it was very good... More

This is an upscale Greek restaurant located downtown. The service is great and the people there are really friendly. Ample parking is available. The restaurant is located downtown and close to the Chena River.

We were wandering around the somewhat decrepit Fairbanks downtown looking for a place to eat and, a little bit on the edge, we found Bobby's. The decor inside was very pleasant, looking a lot posher than other Fairbanks restaurants. My wife ordered gyros (I can't remember if it was a plate or a sandwich) and I ordered the crab cakes...

My wife and I eat here quite often. Fairbanks is pretty limited on nice restaurants, but Bobby's is one of the few that you get to go and get the great food you expect. I usually get the ribeye, but when wanting something different the swordfish is always amazing. Bobby, the owner, is usually there and makes sure to talk... More
