This is our first stop to eat after coming down the mountain from backpacking. We love eating on the outside patio. The Monte Cristo and pies are amazing. The owner is kind, friendly, and accommodating. Live music on Wednesday was fun!

We love Bob's. Everything is excellent quality, well-prepared, and tasty. Their service is usually the best, though like all restaurants, sometimes they have problems in the kitchen which can slow things down, but most of the time it is prompt. Plus Bob and Linda, the owners are two of the most generous and kind people you could ever meet. There... More

I'm a fan of the decadent Monte Cristo, made well. Bob's has it down to perfection. The sandwich is HUGE, a meal for two. And it is out of this world. I was dining with family and they raved about their burgers and soup also. We dined outside in the covered area with umbrella tables, very nice. Great, friendly service,... More

Know the owners. Been in business over 30 years. Varied menu and good food except when they change cooks. Only happens every so often. Good location, easy to find, lots of parking. Banquet room available. I am a local.

The food at Bob's is adequate but you never know from visit to visit what the quality will be. The same goes for the service. It's usually slow but friendly. The waitstaff generally knows what goes into any given dish. They make outstanding pies here, the only consistent thing on the menu.

We had a good dinner at Bob's - much better than we expected for a small town diner. However, the pies we had were just outstanding. Don't really know how to describe them, except to say delicious! I had the coconut cream and my husband had the apricot pie. They were both perfect. Please stop here and get a piece... More

Three of us had a very good breakfast here - eggs & french toast. They have a very good selection - all the usual breakfast choices. The food was very good with good size portions. Everything was fresh and cooked just right. You can't go wrong. Our waitress provided excellent service.

In Etna there weren't too many options for Breakfast, but Bob's Ranch House exceeded out expectations! Great service, extremely clean, and an extensive menu. Being partial to Biscuits and Gravy while traveling, Bob's definitely made my top 10%! We again looked at Bob's for breakfast on Saturday morning but it was absolutely packed with locals...we looked elsewhere but I must... More

I stopped by this place to get some dinner and it was very tasty. The folks there are small town but the food was better than a lot of small town places I've been to.
