We liked the atmosphere in this cozy wine bistro. They had a busy early evening at the bar and we came for dinner a bit later. Good wine selection, nice surroundings and good food, both small and large plates available.

The write-up I read about this place said it was the more casual sister restaurant to the Beachcomber. Note that there is nothing casual about the Bistro - it was candlelit and had a very nice menu and an exhaustive wine list. It did have sandwiches and pizzas, so perhaps that qualifies as casual. The pork chop entree was excellent.

We had excellent service and excellent food. The menu is large and covers most people's wants and desires. Meals were well prepared and our dinner group was pleased. There is live piano music.

I love the Beachcomber but Bobby's Bistro and Wine Bar blows it away. The Bistro is quieter and more friendly. The menu is great and the food is supreme. This is truly a best kept secret. I probably should not have reviewed this because everyone will go there and it will change. Oh Well. It's too good a secret to... More

The food was good but the place is outdated. Nice patio seating area. Dark and dingy inside and smells like a bar.

We're locals and ate at Bobby's with my wife's visiting sister and husband last evening. It was a slow warm Monday evening and we were seated on the lovely covered patio with tropical greenery all around for a great Florida ambiance. Service was, as usual, prompt and attentive. Entrees consisted of a thick pork chop, lemon sole over an herbed... More

Visited on a Saturday at 6p. Not crowded when we arrived at 5:45, but by the time we left, every seat taken. Sea bass special for the evening was wonderful! 4 of the 5 in our party ordered it! Melt in your mouth and generous portion. Another person had the blackened grouper which was perfect and not overdone. Ordered a... More

I have eaten at Bobby's many times over the years; I live less than two miles away and it's always been a "go to" place for a nicer dinner and atmosphere. I admit, I haven't eaten there in a couple of years, but had no expectation that anything would have changed. So my boyfriend and I decided to treat some... More
