My family stopped here for dinner before an evening activity. The service was fine and the food was excellent. My father and I both had made-to-order strombolis. They were quite large; be ready for a big meal or to take leftovers home. My mother and uncle split a meat-lovers pizza which they seemed to enjoy. My wife got the chicken... More

Great subs and cheesy breadsticks! Fast and friendly service and affordable food. I would certainly return if I ever find myself in the area again.

If you're looking for a hidden gem off the beaten path with incredible food, a consistent rotating craft beer line-up, and an attentive staff, happy to see you and meet your needs, you can't miss with Big Bob's. My family feels right at home the second we walk in. Great deck for outdoor seating in the summer as well!

Love to stop here for pizza while in Grand Rapids. Noisy, fun atmosphere. Couples, families, co-workers.... enjoying a drink and good food in a friendly, homey type of place.

Service was great, pizza was really good and very reasonable. It was a little noisy because of the wooden floor.

I regularly stop by Big Bob's for a drink with friends, or to have a family dinner. They always have a fresh and broad selection of craft beers, a complete bar and a simple but full menu. Big Bob's pizzas are terrific - mediterranean is our favorite. The crispy chicken salad, burrito, quesadilla, and french dip are all solid choices.... More

Stuck at Bloggett Hospital for a week or so, so trying to find something for the family. Found out Big Bobs delivers so we went for it. Ordered 1 pep, 1 all meat and one spicy chicken. Spicy chicken was the favorite by far. They do deliver so a good option for pizza in the area.

This is a regular spot for my family and I. The exceptional service is always a great touch. In my opinion, it is really hard to find great pizza and great brews in the same spot, but this place has both. I actually enjoy that its a smaller place, you don't get lost in the shuffle. So, if you're in... More
