“Great lunch buffet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Where can you go and get 6 different types of pizza, 3 different salads, bread sticks and iced tea or pop included for $6.50, and have it be really good...here, in the B.O.B.!

Thank you for your comment Arlene! We're glad you enjoy our pizza buffet, and you're right - for only $6.50 how could you go wrong?! We hope to see you again soon, our buffet will be waiting for you.

“Fun place, cool atmosphere, really nice folks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

The staff was bend-over-backwards accommodating to our group of 8 made up mostly of small children. We went after the noon lunch rush for the all you can eat pizza, pasta, salad and breadstick buffet cause we needed a quick lunch, the staff made a special pizza just for the kids without us asking! It was great eating at a "grown up" place with really good food, creative ingredient combinations and our kids felt welcome too! The value was off the charts and the atmosphere was super fun.

“Great Sandwiches & More”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Their sandwiches seem so much tastier when eaten on a Monday night during a jazz concert. The atmosphere is that of a Roaring 20's speak easy. The wait staff works hard to cater to our needs. It's a true joy to experience this place.

“Love The B.O.B.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

A foursome visited during GR's Restaurant Week and we had a fantastic $25.00 special for two: From a special menu, a shared appetizer, and then each of us an entree & dessert. It was excellent! 2nd time we've eaten there & really like it. Our server was very good & quite friendly. A very good experience! They can be quite busy but we were after an early dinner before a 7pm lecture back at the convention center. Maybe sometime we will actually venture into another of their restaurants under the same roof! Nice & close to the major hotels and we have all become big fans of GR!!

“Great Place and Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Had a great dinner here. We ate out on the sky deck on a perfect night! Great drink choices. (Especially non-alcoholic, since I don't drink.) We did the package deal that includes a 3 course meal and tickets to the comedy club, Dr. Grins. Good value and fun evening. My mac and cheese was bland, but my husbands chicken was fantastic. Our salad and appetizer very good too. Would go back even with our kids at an early enough hour. Appropriate for families, couples and singles. Great service too! Will definitely go back!
