Nice atmosphere, laid back Californian style bistro with an outdoor patio. Zagat rated so I wanted to try. Service was bad...asked for one wine received another, be aware...don't order pizza at this place. Nice upscale wine bars in California will serve wood fired pizzas that are to die for. The shrimp pizza was my idea of good pairing with white... More

First few words that come to mind are: cozy, great food, a must! This is our favorite place for burgers (best on the beach). If you haven't tried the scalloped potatoes, they're a must too. We meet friends here, bring family, or have a quiet night together. Soo good! Excellent food and service. We love it!

Rosie the Tiki Bar bartender at Dream View Beach Hotel recommend this place. Amazing! We sat on the enclosed patio, very nice atmosphere. The food was outstanding! Husband had the veal chop I had the grouper special, both so good! Seek this place out!

We've been coming down to Clearwater every year for a couple of months to get away from the New York winters. As we settled in over the years, our family and friends took us around to the usual places, but most of them were mediocre at best and we found ourselves bouncing from one tourist trap to the next without...

We liked the atmosphere in this cozy wine bistro. They had a busy early evening at the bar and we came for dinner a bit later. Good wine selection, nice surroundings and good food, both small and large plates available.

The write-up I read about this place said it was the more casual sister restaurant to the Beachcomber. Note that there is nothing casual about the Bistro - it was candlelit and had a very nice menu and an exhaustive wine list. It did have sandwiches and pizzas, so perhaps that qualifies as casual. The pork chop entree was excellent.

We had excellent service and excellent food. The menu is large and covers most people's wants and desires. Meals were well prepared and our dinner group was pleased. There is live piano music.

I love the Beachcomber but Bobby's Bistro and Wine Bar blows it away. The Bistro is quieter and more friendly. The menu is great and the food is supreme. This is truly a best kept secret. I probably should not have reviewed this because everyone will go there and it will change. Oh Well. It's too good a secret to... More

The food was good but the place is outdated. Nice patio seating area. Dark and dingy inside and smells like a bar.

We're locals and ate at Bobby's with my wife's visiting sister and husband last evening. It was a slow warm Monday evening and we were seated on the lovely covered patio with tropical greenery all around for a great Florida ambiance. Service was, as usual, prompt and attentive. Entrees consisted of a thick pork chop, lemon sole over an herbed... More
