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...

The staff is attentive and easy to have casual conversation. The crowd is low key and the food is great.

The authentic Greek is Bobby himself. He's a classy, personable guy who could write the book on Greek cooking. My wife and I have been going there since 2004 and make it a point to visit whenever we're in Fairbanks. Bobby's food is delicious and he puts a lot of heart into everything the restaurant serves. The menu is great... More

Primarily Greek flavors, this restaurant is more formal than some others in Fairbanks. I visited the area several years ago and they had live jazz in the bar area. Since then, the staff says that they only have live music in the winter season. We had a group of 8 and they did a great job accommodating us. All the... More

We was looking for a place to enjoy a sit down meal that was not fast food, but upon looking at the menu decided not to stay. The prices were extremely expensive for what was on the menu; therefore, we left.

We where told by a local the different Dinner options and her last comment was "Bobby's has not only excellent food but the best bathrooms in Fairbanks". That makes us curious :-) Great relaxed atmosphere with Greek style architecture and furnishings, top service from our waitress, and this place... More

Warm Halibut salad and the entrée size Greek salad were prepared extremely well and served the same way. They were out of our first wine selection, but the second proved t0be very good. Wee were not hurried and our server took care of all of our needs.

Fabulous menu of Southern BBQ. Lots of choices to choose from. The side dishes are authentic Southern cuisine. The service is excellent. The restaurant is very spacious with lots of seating.

My friend and I ate here on the last day of our Fairbanks visit. After being in a cabin for most of the week, and eating a bunch of processed soups that we packed, we were craving some vegetables :) We couldn't decide, so we split the Spanakopita and Greek Salad, which were both delicious. I've been to Greece, and... More
