“Cool Place, Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Bob's Diner is no dive. Perhaps one of the more upscale diners I have been to. Really awesome Hollandaise sauce! Good size portions and everyone in the family really enjoyed the meal. . Overall staff was good. Our waitress seemed a little put out when we asked for refills and so on but we got what we needed when we needed it and for a young girl working on a beautiful holiday weekend cannot really say I blame her to wish she was elsewhere. My 5 year old loved the juke box and the atmosphere was tastefully retro cool. The pancakes are huge and the home fries are homey. While we ate like it was our last supper we were kind of surprised when the total bill for three which included three meals one half stack of pancakes extra and coffee and juice was a bit over $50--we noted that the juices were a bit pricey and added up--not a big deal as we were on vacation but if you are watching coins something you might want to consider.

“Solid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

Great, no-frills, straight-up delicious diner experience. Lots of good menu choices, friendly staff, and extremely reasonable prices. Only recommendation would be to offer more unique menu items.

“Damn good diner”

It's one of the best breakfast diners I've been to, which says a lot since I am originally from New Jersey (aka land of diners).

“Stellar diner food, awesome service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

This was the highlight of our trip to Manchester. Sure there's plenty of hauty-tauty dining there but Bob's is the bomb.
After skiing at Stratton we popped in just before closing. They were great, the food was great, and the service wonderful.
My wife had the best veggie burger ever (Her words not mine) I sampled the beef barley soup (A+) and the chicken cordon bleu.
Great meal, great price and super service.

“It's a diner...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Not amazing not terrible. Like any other diner, but with better service and convenient location. I like to go here on my way out of town for dinner. Another favorite stop is the little soup hut.... yum!
