“YA GOTTA GO HERE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2011

Went to Bobby's last night. We avoided it for a couple years due to reviews on Tripadvisor. Boy were we wrong! Loved it! Loved the little room we chose that has only 8 private booths. Service was fantastic, although on a Thursday night they were crowded. I had the pasta dish, which is different every day. It was fettuchini with a creme sherry sauce that also had spinach, fresh mushrooms, diced tomatoes and great shrimp for $18. Huge portion. My husband had the full rack of ribs ($16). They were meaty and done to perfection. A sauce that has a little more pizzazz would have put them over the top, but all in all a very good meal. We will definitely be back!

“WoW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2010

We've eaten here several times - come in from the boat. What we like is that the smaller menu selection is the same quality as the Beachcomber (which requires proper attire). Where else can you get quality food in a comfortable setting and fun staff? We usually sit in the bar area as we watch sports a lot. This is an upscale casual restaurant where boaters are welcome. Highly recommend it!

“It's average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2009

Well let’s see. We started the night off the no table set up. I had to practically use my pants for a napkin…. drinks took for ever. We ordered soup and salad. The bobby’s bistro bowl had vinaigrette that was very average. The salad didn’t marry well the dressing. The lobster bisque came out all lumpy but it had good flavor. They had many specials so I decided to have the pasta special. They brought out beef stroganoff made with beef bouillon. I could taste the artificial flavoring it had MSG in it. I could have made something like that and it would have tasted better. It had no depth in their food. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone because it was just average. The ambiance was the only thing I liked about the restaurant.

“A disaster! This restaurant does not care much about its customers.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2009

A disaster! This restaurant does not care much about its customers. We made a reservation, but the table they held for us was outside on the patio in space without air conditioning. The weather was typical Florida sauna and not bearable. When we rejected the table, the maitresse'd smiled at us as if we were crazy and estimated 40 minutes wait time for a table in air conditioned space. Very disappointing!
