First time we have eaten here but what an amazing menu. Full menu, specials menu, special specials menu. Very affordable prices for good food. Loved the old style bar and restaurant. We will definitely go again.

We visited Robbies for lunch and ordered the corn fritters, a children's corn-dog meal and the clam chowder. All these items are not on the regular menu but are featured on the chalk board lunch menu. I have to confess we were not expecting much but the food was fantastic! The corn cakes were tasty and well presented, the corn-dog... More

Went here to celebrate a birthday. The staff were very friendly and the menu catered for all tastes. There is more to Robbies than the on-line menu, even more options on the blackboard from corn fritters to salmon fillet. Huge portions and nobody left hungry. The sides have enough for 2 people to share.Thank you to the staff for the... More

My husband and I stopped there for lunch with minimal expectations - we had driven past a few times but had never stopped before. Wow - it was not what we expected. The lunch menu was extensive and including several $12 lunch specials. My husband got a Moroccan chicken wrap and I got the Pork roast lunch special. My husband... More

We were staying in a motel a short distance away and were recommended Robbies Bar and Bistro. We had a really good roast dinner with lots of veg, some of which we couldn't identify but which were very tasty. Good service.

I went there today - I had undercooked lamb, that was discoloured from frost bite, limp old carrots & lumpy, watery potatoes. I walked in & the waitress turned her back on meNo welcome, no smile. I was the only person in the dining room & had to ask if I could order a meal. I wasn't given a seat,... More

The food and service was very good. Good portion size and a plus that they serve Monteith's beer on tap. Was very kind to make one of the items dairy free. Not the best quality food around and their cleanliness could use an upgrade but still a nice experience nonetheless.
