This restaurant is a great place for an afternoon break! My wife and I had a couple of Caesars and split a Clubhouse sandwich here. Our server Kaylin was attentive, very positive and happy and made our visit even better. She split the sandwich for us without being asked to and that made our visit even better. Nice to see...

Bobby C's is located at a marina in Bowmanville. It definitely could do with a renovation but it was still comfortable. It was nice enough when we went to sit outside on the patio. The menu is pretty normal pub fare. Food was okay. Not horrible and not great. Okay. But it was lovely to be outside with a nice... More

Average burger, tasty deep fried pickle, but stunning location by the water. Don't know why they were noisily re-arranging chairs right beside me when there was no large party arriving. When it settled down I could hear the birds and make conversation. Need to give it another try.

First off we my daughter and I were passed 3 times before seated. Once seated we enjoyed the beautiful view and waited for crayons which came after the drinks. We ordered drinks and they came fine. The dinner was ordered and promised it would be out shortly 3 times, kids pizza and a chicken sandwich. The couple next to us... More

This is a great place to go if you want to relax and enjoy a good meal with friends. Lots of parking.. You can eat inside or on the patio..Patio nice but may require a wait ..

I found the combo platters way too expensive for what we received. We had a party of 13 and for what we paid it was not worth it.

A lovely spot on a warm June evening, live acoustic music on Friday night was an unexpected treat. Nice selection of cocktails and craft-brewed beer, prompt service and friendly staff.

Great location on Port Darlington harbour. Impressed with our server's handling of our group of 40. Loved my kale salad & calamari. Some people were not as pleased with their meals. Would like more washrooms, 2 stalls is just not enough in a big place. Limited wine list and they were out of stock on our first choice. Nice big... More

We went for a family gathering. We were seated in the far corner of the restaurant so they could accommodate the 7 of us. The table was round... however it had seen better days. The edges of the table slanted downward and awkward for plates and wine glasses. Food was good. The view of the boats on the water in... More

My wife and I had lunch here but it was too cool to use the big patio overlooking the marina. My wife's Lorraine Salad was delicious as was my Prime Rib Sandwich. The fries were nice and hot and the sandwich made for a good size meal. The service was quick and friendly and everything was as we asked for.... More
