It took awhile to be seated, even though there wasn't a line. Once seated you are treated well. Breakfast, the hashbrowns were too chewy to eat. Dinner selections were very good.

The fish tacos and rib eye were amazing. The staff did a wonderful job catering to my 2 year old grandson.

Bob's is so convenient when staying at the hotel. The menu has a nice variety of good food. Undoubtly you meet a few characters while dining / or having a drink which adds to the wonderful experience of the hotel.

For dinner, my husband ordered fried walleye and I chose the teriyaki stir-fry. His fish and coleslaw were delicious, french fries rather ordinary. My stir-fry was loaded with perfectly cooked vegetables and the sauce... More

The food quality and presentation is very good. Service is friendly. They improved the menu from the previous year, along with the bloody mary mix. Much better this year. For the last two Brr Rides, we have just eaten here. Jay the owner, may stop by and chat.

My husband and I enjoyed drinks, the mushroom appetizer and the burger--all wonderful. Honestly one of the best burgers we have had in a long time. Great service at the bar and as always a check in and smile from the owner, Jay.

The food was outstanding. When I saw the buffet it was clear that ingredients were of high quality and everything was very fresh. Tasting the food proved it - great job on the shrimp cocktail, prime rib, salmon, salad, and vegetables. It is so difficult to find good greens for salad in the middle of winter. The green beans were... More
