Came here for dinner after checking reviews. Should have gone to the bistro nearby. This place has crazy slow service and the food sucks. You have been warned !

Greek & Mediterranean food just average...over priced for the food & drink but centrally located downtown. Bar is a go to place after work...loud & noisy, but also adequate.

We had spectacular lamb chops and fettuccine with mushrooms. Done to perfection! Our server was friendly and fast. And the owner, Bobby, was a delight. We hope to return before leaving Fairbanks this weekend.

Food was not cheap and not good. Pizza was awful and my husbands shrimp dish which was not cheap, had 4 small little shrimp and a bowl full of sauce. The owner/chef walked around filling his glass with wine and buying the locals wine. Then walked over and tried to badger us into liking his food when we said it... More

We had a delicious dinner and scrumptious desserts. The owner was particularly friendly. The restaurant is located next to a lovely park.

We had some time downtown for a second day so we stopped a local and he gave us suggestions about places to eat. He gave us several ideas, one being Bobby's. It was nice and quiet and the food was great. The server was excellent, he thought we'd waited too long and gave us a dessert of baklava to share.... More

Used to frequent Bobbys several years ago. Went back tonight for dinner and found the food to be pretty bad. Salads were wilted and served with too much dressing. Baklava was horrible. It was gray colored and sitting in 1/4" water. Yuck!

We ordered two appetizers and one entree, we only made it through the appetizers, the entree was put in a box and we ate it at our B&B the next night. The food was very good, service was excellent and the ambiance was also very good. Well worth a visit if you like Greek food.

It doesn't look much like a Greek restaurant from the outside and the name threw us off a bit but.......what a GREAT place to eat! We loved their food, had a Greek pasta dish and Gyro sandwich that was excellent! Good wait staff and chef, nice bar, popular place to eat. We would definitely eat here again and would highly...
