Chef Edward John's new menu is both familiar and inspiring, twisting perceptions about new american with exciting Asian, Mexican, and Italian flavors. This isn't just bar food. Bobarino's uses farm fresh, local ingredients from local growers, and always has amazing specials to expand and entice your pallet. Bobarino's also features a legendary array of wood-fired pizzas, some have called the best in Grand Rapids. The bar features taps with revolving Bob's Beers, local crafts, and domestics. We also offer specialty Michigan crafts in the bottle. Our signature seasonal cocktail menu is handcrafted my our staff Mixologist, and our wine list features local favorites for any price range. Dueling Pianos is the feature 9pm - 1am Friday and Saturday nights. The always hilarious artists take your requests, that is unless someone else stops your song!

Test your skills on Big Buck or Golden Tee, or enjoy the classic billiards and shuffle board tables while watching the biggest sporting events our large collection of new plasma screens.

Went into the B.O.B. with the intentions of finding semi-cheap, good food (which can be difficult in a town like GR). Bobarino's definitely did not disappoint, with a good pub-style spread to choose from at affordable prices.

We heard about THE BOB and wanted to try one of the several restaurants there. It is a big old building (hence, BOB) and 3 or 4 levels of restaurants. It was quite crowded at Bobarino's but we decided to wait. We were given one of those gadgets that vibrates when your table is ready. Originally we were told the wait would be around 30-40 minutes but after just 15 minutes we felt the vibration and were seated.
Burgers, pizza and salads are big here. We had a pizza and a salad with local beer.
Good food - decent service - fun experience!

Great setting, food, service, value. This is a stop we make each time in GR, this past trip it was managed to go twice. With ArtPrize going on and all the people that come to town for that we still get great service and outstanding food. That to me is a real test of what a restaurant is capable of, when the heat is on for days on end they still produce an excellent product. Love the ambiance with all the wood floors, ceilings, and rafters. All round great experience.

Fun atmosphere and the couple times a year I go to Grand Rapids I try to make it a point to go here because they have a great pizza buffet and the food is always good. Service is good and the food has always arrived timely even when they are busy-we went during Artprize opening weekend this year and there was a ton of people. Definitely recommend.

If you're not interested in small plates (Gillys) or steaks (Judson's) - the BOB also offers casual typical American fare dining at Bobarinos. Taking up the entire floor it is the busiest of the restaurants there. From burgers to pizza etc. Bobarino's offers everyone a choice. Typical bar ambience, outdoor seating is also available. A good place to eat if you are looking for a basic friendly meal.

Gene, we appreciate your comment and for noticing that we are yet another great entity within the B.O.B. Not many people realize how different each restaurant is and we're glad that you didn't base experiences in other restaurants on your opinion of ours. We hope you'll visit us again soon for another friendly meal!
