Been around a long time - best fresh seafood available. Like the call ahead service but always find more to buy as I'm waiting for my food. Staff is very knowledgeable.

The broiled scallops were delicious, but incredibly overpriced for the portion received (a couple were a bit sandy too). I got onion rings and cole slaw on the side. The slaw was completely dry, but tasted fresh. The onion rings were nice and hot, but the breading was a bit odd. I think they bread everything they fry in the... More

Bob's offers mostly fried seafood that's not inexpensive. Their chowder was unimpressive and way overpriced. The counter staff was surly and far from customer oriented. Despite all of that they appear to do a fairly brisk business, especially take-out. I have no plans to return after the unfriendly reception and the greasy, overpriced food.

I'm not rating the restaurant portion. I'm rating the seafood section. We come here frequently to buy clams, oysters, crabs, etc. Always fresh food and always good service

Makes you feel like your down the shore. All kinds of seafood. Your choice of buying it to take home and cook or order it to eat there or to go.

i'd rather pay more and enjoy a good meal than pay less and in some cases, waste my money.. fried fish is too salty and dry. the fish does not taste fresh. it seems more like frozen and fried.

A total gem in the area. We haven't dined in yet but I hear it is just as good. We get fresh seafood here all the time, never go anywhere else anymore. Great selection, and fresh fresh fresh!

Found fried fish to be to greasy and not seasoned well. With the prices charged there should be something better then paper plates to eat off of.

If you are looking for fresh seafood in Quakertown, than Captain Bob's is the place to go. You can take out or eat in. The take out store has a large variety of fresh or freshly prepared seafood and side dishes. You can also eat there as well. The restaurant part of the store is nothing fancy. You go to... More

The best prices on fried seafood platters. Always fresh and delicious. Very casual, service window only which is just fine. Where else are you going to get 2 jumbo lump crab cakes, fries and coleslaw for under $10. This place is not to be missed!
