“Superb service with a smile”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

I was very impressed with the friendliness of our waitress and other staf members. The entree I had was delicious. I doubt there's anything that can be done about the noise level -- it's the price of sharing a popular place with every table filled with folks enjoying themselves, but that's the one improvement that would be welcomed.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

First time dining at Robbi's. Food is high quality, plentiful and reasonably priced. I dined on blackened mahi tacos. There was plenty of fish in a flour taco, served with black beans and rice. The grilled shrimp dinner served up 7 large shrimp, perfectly grilled and a choice of 2 sides. For those looking for a cocktail they sere beer and wine only.

“Poor Acoustics”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

Restaurant is in strip mall across from Brickyard Plaza. First thing you notice is the loudness of the conversations, poor acoustics. As a single diner, I ate at the 8 stool bar. The menu is somewhat limited so I had the 1/2 lb big Kahuna hamburger which came with fries. Although they were quite busy, the french fries were way overcooked and were more than crispy. Would think if busy they would be undercooked! The burger was excellent, however. Not sure I would return because of the noise level and limited menu.

“Great local seafood”
Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

Fish tacos are best I have had. Kids has fish and chips which was great. Almost can share those plates..don't be scared of a strip mall eatery. Very fresh seafood and served fast and made to order. Try it .
