Looking for a comfortable and casual place to kickback, relax and enjoy a cold drink and get something other than your typical "bar food"? Well look no further than Bobber Down. We pride ourselves on offering a little something for everyone: great food, cold drinks, 10 big screen TVs for sports fans, bar trivia, live music every weekend and our outdoor patio (for those 6 months in Michigan when you can be outside). Our menu has many staples, but it's always changing and we love to keep things fresh with a variety of daily specials. Our regulars love the fish and chips and our signature burgers. Check out our menu - we're pretty sure you'll find something you'll like! Come on in and get hooked on Bobber Down Bar and Grill!
