“Good food”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

The food was good, the decor a bit dated. The drinks were also good. We enjoyed the salad bar which had a lot of toppings. We did not enjoy the background music in Spanish. This was a Hawaiian/tropical restaurant!!!

“Celebration”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We went to Bob Chin's last night to celebrate a work related milestone. Our waiter Eric couldn't have been sweeter...The food was excellent, and like I said, the service was excellent!! The 3 3oz lobsters were to die for...and the salad bar never disappoints! Don't forget to get the garlic rolls!!

“Do not judge the book by its cover!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

As long resident of this area I have seen this place growing and expanding more then twice the size. It still does not make the wait lines getting shorter during weekends and the holidays.
it may not look fancy from inside, rarely you will find white linen napkins... but if the napkins you want - Sears is nearby. If you stopped here for fresh variety of seafood - it is worth the wait!
Always fresh, from all over the world and on display for you to choose. It may not be the cheapest restaurant in town, so prepare spend some cash...It is NOT the most expensive.
If you are the tourist - stop by and eat with locals! Recommend!!!

“Consistently great seafood - for those who love garlic”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Start with great garlic rolls with lots of fresh garlic. Then fresh good seafood of every type.
Even the steaks are very good and combo's offer the best of both worlds. Try eating in the
bar off the bar menu on M-Th from about 3:30-6 or late. Food is lunch size but very inexpensive.
Mai Tai's are great too.
