I am here now and my boyfriend and I have received the worst service i've ever received. From start to finish, we were handled haphazardly. Having to ask someone from the bar to seat us, to being served by the cook. We were the only table not being served by a waitress! The meathead manager is useless and needs to... More

If you can get past the urinal stench that greets you at the door, good luck. Not the place for me, how disgusting..

The Reuben here is incredible. Get it on the marble rye. It is a perfect balance of too much meat (a little usually falls out) and the right amount of cheese, mustard and kraut. Don't change anything about it, just get it as is. The American Fries are wonderful. Tacos are also excellent.

I heard on the radio about McBob's having a good fish fry so we thought we would check them out. The atmosphere is very laid back and fun your typical pub and grill setting. We were greated and seated immediately by what I am assuming was the owner who was very friendly and welcoming. We did not wait long before... More

Driven by the place many times without even thinking about it, then a friend asked me to join them for a sandwich. An Irish Pub with a great menu, it was a quaint and nice place for sure. And . . . after four visits to the place I can say that the Rueben was great (tried it twice to... More

Met some old friends here for a late lunch. We all ordered the Reuben. Turns out the meat in my sandwich was cold...little disappointed. Just wish I could have had a warm sandwich. Not a fan of the chips either. Otherwise, they were good.

Regulars (and there are legions of them) know that the best corned beef in town is made and served right here! Avoid the lines by coming on the off hours if you can - but even a wait is worth it once you've had one of their signature sandwiches. Their menu is extensive - and the service is quick and... More

Our party of 5 ate there for dinner and the spinach artichoke dip was super creamy and loaded. It is served with grilled marble rye. The chicken tender appetizer was super crunchy and had great ranch dip. It was a nice portion. The table next to us also got the spinach dip. They have a wide beer selection. The Farmer... More

I've had my share of corned beef sandwhiches and Reubens. There are some good ones out there, but if I really need the best, I go to McBob's! If you really want a Rueben, go for it. But if you want to see what made them famous, just order the Corned Beef. The restaurant/bar has a laid back neighborhood feel.... More

McBobs is a Milwaukee landmark & every patron that visits are fortunate to have y'all so easily accessible from the entire metro area! The corned beef, in all its mouth watering goodness, cannot be beat and may be the BEST anywhere! The burgers are thick & juicy and served on flakey buttery buns that make these burgers some of the... More
