“Best food in southern IN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We have eaten everything on the menu and there is absolutely nothing bad. The steaks are pricey but enough for at least two people plus take home bag. The pizza is the traditional Bobe's special which has been around since 1956 and still cannot be beat anywhere...including Chicago. The fried mushrooms are also most as good as the wild ones. Good job guys!

“I'd drive 100 miles for their fried mushrooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

I'll start with the deep fried portobello mushrooms because they are in a class by themselves. My favorite kind of fried mushrooms are in-season morels that I find in the nearby woods but they have managed to capture that same taste with their fried portobellos. I've never had anything like them anywhere else.
The service here is always friendly and speedy but you'd better get there early if you don't want to stand in line. I'm not crazy about the whole eating area being one giant open space but that seems to work for them.
My wife's favorite is their stuffed ravioli and she orders it nearly every time. I'm not a big pizza fan but I do like theirs. My favorite is their steaks served only Tuesday through Thursday. I ate the best delmonico I've ever eaten there. Ruth's Chris watch out! These people know how to cook steaks. The fish is also delicious here. The decor is nothing special but people come here for the food, not the eye appeal. Bobe's is a great place to bring families.

“Best Baked Spaghetti”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

The steaks do look great but I've never had one. I can't seem to get anything but the baked spaghetti (with three meatballs). The best I've ever had. The beverage prices are very reasonable. I hate being in town on Monday nights though, since they are closed Monday's.

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Great place! The steaks that are served during the week are very pricey but big enough to share. The fish is out of this world and the pizza is the restaurant specialty!
