The food was just average and so was the service. It's a good, quick place to go to before a show at the VanAndel Arena but I wouldn't recommend it.

Very nice selection of local brews and the food selection is like a pub with wood fire pizza to burgers and wings.

The food was good, the service was really good and they put the hockey game on and there are plenty of TV's to catch what ever game you are looking for.

Bobarino's is a little bit sports bar, a bit restaurant, and a lot just an average place to stop for a quick meal, provided there is not something going on at the Hob, when it gets pretty busy and hectic. We have eaten here 5 times in the short time we have lived in GR and have been satisfied each time. The service is OK, the food is OK, the ambiance is OK, so I guess it is OK. They do a good job getting you in and out if you are in a hurry. They are good for families. The menu has lots of choices for inexpensive fare.

I was looking for something different for lunch and saw the pizza & salad buffet advertised at Bobarino's in the BOB. I haven't been to the BOB for a few years and thought I'd give it a try. The restaurant was fairly empty, approximately 20 people total scattered about at tables of 2-4. There were 3 salads; the garden salad, a caesar salad and cabbage salad and 3 flavors of dressing, French, a vinagrette & Ranch. Very ordinary.

The pizza selections were also nothing to write a great review about. A veggie pizza, dried pulled pork, I believe and a few sausage & cheese. Minimal toppings, dried out pies and one pasta selection.

I was hoping for more from the BOB. Disappointed in the lack of selection and flavor.

Our meals were served in a timely manner. We liked the atmosphere and the old building, decorated nicely for the holidays. Bobarino's was very casual and served our needs well.
