“Worth the Wait........”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

inside or out, the menu is perfect for a beach front bar/grille. Fish n'chips, clams, chowder and plenty of choices for cold beer and wine. Another plus, the staff is efficient and friendly. Comfortable and consistent service and food make this a excellent choice for lunch, drinks, snacks or supper!

“Much better after Gordon Ramsay stormed through”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

Gordon Ramsay just filmed his Kitchen Nightmares show there last week (May 17, 2012) and did a good job of cleaning up the place and re-vamping the menu. He scaled it down to a much more manageable size for the kitchen. Since it was the first day after reopening, it was crowded as expected but only took 15 minutes to get a table outside on the patio.

Checked out the drink menu and found that they were offering my one of my favorite drinks, Goombay Smash. So I had to try it. Not bad, not bad at all.

For dinner I had the fried seafood platter. Much better than before. The haddock was battered with a thin crisp coating, light and flaky inside. The scollops were amazing! Shrimp and clams were also good.

Service is better since they now have a new electronic ordering system that gets sent to the kitchen as it is ordered at the table....kinda cool.

“Highly recommended - good fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Dined at Barefoot Bobs whilst staying at the Nantasket Beach Resort next door. It was March so not much else open in the town, but we were pleased we chose this place as the food was tasty and portions were huge. It's a local bar at heart (probably more so off season), and doesn't look that inviting from the outside, but as a dining option is fine with (very) relaxed but friendly service.

“Nice Place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012 via mobile

Had dinner there tonight. The food was very good and the service excellent. I had the small prime rib and it was very large (took home a nice chunk). MB handled the salmon and it was very good too. It's clean and comfortable. Nice wall along the beach after dinner.

“lunch by the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

lovely littel beachy place with good food and good value. This place reminds me of littel tavernas in Greece. It is just honest to goodness food, good value and outdoor seating.
