“Ice cream and a place to relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The ice cream and shakes are good, and the service is friendly. What sets this place apart is the landscaping, making you feel as if you are eating ice cream in a tropical paradise. Plenty of benches and vistas. Bob's is the place to be.

“The building is pretty cool....lol”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Eh...not impressed, and the prices are quite high. There are definitely better local places to go for ice cream.

“Yum”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Yum. I treated myself to an ice cream sundae: vanilla with chocolate syrup, whipped cream and nuts. Don't remember the price but whatever it was, it was worth it. The employees are super nice by the way. I would recommend it.

“Granddaughter's favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We love the ability to drive thru and get ice cream to take to the beach to watch the sunset. Lots of flavors for cones and cups.

“Allow plenty of time to read the menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This is no vanilla, chocolate and strawberry place. Between the flavors, the add-ins and the yougurt vs soft serve vs hand scooped, it'll take a while to choose. The end result isn't bad but why all the choices?
