“Expected Good and Got Excellent”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

Had a business dinner and was really impressed. Highlights were the steak, carrot, creamed corn and chocolate cake. Each was a hair different and better than the normal high end steakhouse.

“Yummy food & excellent service”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

We had an expensive but yummy dinner with another couple. The four of us--without any alcohol--spent well over $200 for a leisurely, well paced, nicely prepared meal. Our friends had filet mignon that they raved and raved about. Hubby and I had the prime rib-steaks . . . very nice, but not extraordinary. What made the dinner so yummy was the lobster bisque, the delicious sides that came with the meat (huge glazed whole carrot on each plate, worth writing home about!), and good pie for dessert. Noise level a little too high, but it was still easy to converse without straining. Service was seamless.

“Average steaks”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Nice atmosphere and good service. Pretty complete, but pricey, menu, yet the steaks were just average. My rib eye was too gristly and had to be sent back once because it was medium instead of medium-rare. My husband's filet wasn't anything special. The potatoes were also just average. Great wine list though!

“Good quality meat”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Good:
- As expected in expensive, fine dining place, service is great.

- Both Filet Mignon and lamb are made from top quality meat to justify one the highest price in DFW area. Unlike some other fine dining places, where they put more time on display and match with more exotic sides, here meat is the main theme. Portions are big too.

- Giant, juicy glazed carrot is their signature item (same quality in all Bob's places). On the otherhand, just using their magic "carrot" in all dishes can be viewed as lack of creativity and even meat itself could be prepared a bit better.

- Appetizer: this time I tried crabcake and could be my mistake, which is just ok. "The wedge" salad is simple and good though. Pumpkin soup could be another good choice too.

Ok:
- Dessert are just ok. Chocolate cake is not too sweet but nothing outstanding. Keylime pie is to avoid. Sadly, you could get at least similar or may be better quality dessert at Costco or Trader's Joe.

Dessert may be the weakest link here, followed by appetizer. So just have main entree then.

“Don't waste your time or money”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

I will preface this review with the fact I am a foodie and a frequent cook. I am always disappointed if the food at a restaurant is not as good or better than I could have prepared at home. As for Bob's Steak House, almost anyone could prepare something better than what we expereinced. I will start with the good: The bread was delicious, hot and fresh. Unfortunately, that is where the good ends.
We were in town on business and ate at Bob's out of convenience. There were four in our party and no one had a good experience with their food.
The lobster mac and cheese did not taste fresh - the lobster was fishy versus sweet and the noodles were almost voide of sauce and taste. Three people in our party ordered the Maryland Crab cakes which were fairly tasteless and not attractively displayed. The plate included no garnish - just a honey mustard sauce spread across the entire plate making the sauce unavoidable - and it was not good and did not complement the crab cake.
One person in our party ordered a fillet and they insisted on preparing it butter fly style - stating if they did not, it would be an extra 20 minutes of wait/prep time. Their first attempt at medium well looked like beef jerky and could hardly be cut with a steak knife. Their second attempt was better but the person eating it said the meat was of poor quality, definitely not worth $40.
The salad selections were unimaginative and contained poor quality produce - similar to what you would find at a fast food restaurant - lacking in color and taste. Honestly, I don't know how this restaurant continues have a good reputation with low quality ingredients, less than average preparation and slow service.
