I had a wonderful burger here. My server was very nice. I paid about twelve dollars for a burger with a side. Salads, sandwiches and some desserts round out the menu. Good place for a burger. There's a bar upstairs if you want more of a bar scene. I sat downstairs, had a nice booth by a window. Pleasant place.... More

It was difficult to find a restaurant that had an area large enough to accommodate our baseball team + families, ideally we were looking for a private room with a variety of food. Downtown Bobs Burger and Brew, was able to seat our party of 32 in a private section of their restaurant. The waiter did a PHENOMENAL job attending... More

Bob's makes a decent burger for a decent price. The downtown Bellingham location has a nice outdoor seating area which, in the summer, will require a cold frosty mug of beer to create a perfect afternoon meal. Worth a visit.

Bob's has really good food.... nice sandwiches and the service is friendly. Not the cheapest place around, but I like the fact that it is right smack dab in the center of downtown. There is almost always a sideshow: some sort of demonstration or picketing going on on the corners outside. Nothing "riotous" just interesting. I'll be back.

It'll fill you up. They revamped their menu a year or so ago, which made the food a little better (in my opinion). It's pretty pricey for a burger, but you do not go home hungry.

Never having visited the downtown Bob's location, I grabbed an early dinner there with my mom this summer. I ordered a chicken burger with grilled mushrooms, and a huge salad was included. My mom got the smoked salmon salad. Having a big appetite, I am the sort of person who has trouble finding restaurants where the serving size is big... More

Amazing steak salad!! Everyone I know absolutely loves this place, and it's for a dang good reason. The food is delicious and they have a full bar and happy hour almost every day. Upstairs has the bar and downstairs is more family-oriented. Very well-done, though, and the staff is very polite.

My wife and I witnessed two (2) chefs use a bathroom we know had zero soap in the dispenser. We know this as we alerted staff before we saw the chefs use the same bathroom. Filthy bathrooms as they were. Food was formulaic but reasonable in flavour and presentation. If we get sick due to the lack of hygiene we... More

This is one of my favorite Bob's because they have nice outdoor seating and a great selection of booths. We've had good & great waiters, but also some subpar ones, but in all I love this Bob's

Went to Bob's downtown, on Sunday the 2nd, was seated quickly and politely....everything as I had experienced before was pretty much the same, an aging establishment that needs some tlc getting rundown and shop worn and a bit dirty..... but to top this visit off, as our server handed me my fish and chips, the tartar slid off and into...
