We visited Bobby C's this evening for Easter Dinner, and to be quite honest, I don't think I'd ever return. Prices are way to high for the quality and quantity of the food you receive. Cleanliness of the establishment leaves much to be desired. Service was good, but not great. For starters, we ordered the crab cakes, which came served... More

There were about 44 people in the place but only 2 waitresses. How can you run a restaurant serving over 40 people with just two waitresses? The service was really slow - I expect there was only one cook in the kitchen. Anyway, I asked for a scotch and water and was told by the waitress that she doesn't think... More

I have been to Bobby C's many times. The food has always been very good. The view is really nice, it is located beside a marina, I try to get a window seat or sit on the patio in the summer. I love their crab cakes and soups. My favorite item is the Pad Thai which is full of flavor... More

Love the patio here as well and can't wait for summer to roll around. Wish they would serve breakfast on weekends. Closest we could get to breakfast was a toasted western.

Love the patio here. Looking forward to summer again for this reason. Their burgers are beyond fantastic.

I have only eaten there twice, once inside and the other outside. Both times, the restaurant was very understaffed and those who did work there were not well trained. I was there with a group of friends outside and the meals came at all different times. Mine when it came was cold instead of hot and had to go back.... More

I like the wings here, & my wife enjoys the ribs. And the view of the marina below is good, too: just be sure to get seated at the extreme south end, or the western side, for good views. Nice gazebo out front for pre-arranged get-togethers, too --- in fact, our high school r-union is held there every year, &... More

The service was wonderful - the waiter was friendly and helpful. Food on the other hand wasn't so great. The pad thai was tasteless, the steak had no seasoning, the Caesar salad was bland. I've been here before and have had good food - did the chef change? Disappointing!

Friendly service, good wine, tasty food - what else I can say? Ok in summertime even better, you can sit outside on the waterfront. Clear recommendation from my side.
