    I was excited to try Bob's... unfortunately it wasn't that great. The ambiance is nice, they have home made pickles to snack on and these are good for a few bites and the bread is great. However, I didn't go for pickles and bread. The sides, creamed spinach and mac n cheese, were also very good but the disappointment came with the steak. For the price it definitely was not worth it. It seemed a bit bland and not as full of flavor as other places. They also do not have an in house steak sauce, I normally never use a steak sauce but this time I felt I needed it and they don't have any in house only heinz 57 and A1. The deserts were awesome though, tried the cheesecake and brownie and those did not disappoint at all!

    Bob's was a very nice surprise at The Rim since there are a lot of chain restaurants in the area. I was afraid the atmosphere was going to be a bit stuffy from the looks on the outside, but it was vibrant and I felt right at home! The cocktails were delicious and unique for the evening. The crab cake appetizer was good with half stuffing half crabmeat and a honey mustard sauce on the side. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly and tender. The two 4 oz. filets came with a fried lobster tail that was a bit salty. The wedge salad....perfect with lots of blue cheese. We ended with a decadent slice of chocolate cake. I will not hesitate to go back again when we are in the area. Oh and last but not least, James from New York was a class act; wonderfully attentive waiter! So was the bus service.

  • Saw Bob's as number 3 Steakhouse in San Antonio...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/4/2014
    Probably one of the best steakhouses I have been to in a long time. The Bone in Ribeye was absolutely amazing to the point where I took my first bite and had to stop and just sit back and enjoy the flavor. The entrees were not a la carte they came with a a choice of potatoes in a variety of styles and a carrot... I don't even know how anyone could make a carrot of all things taste sooo incredibly good. With my friends entree it came with a crab cake, this crab cake had also the same effect on both of us, take a bite and sit back and enjoy it. This place is hands down amazing! This is a place that you will never know it was on your bucket list until you have eaten there.

    He is spot on with his Fried Lobster appetizer and Bacon appetizer. Of course, any steak ordered comes out impeccable. But, I ordered the Sea Bass and it brought tears to my eyes. Never have I tasted this dish prepared like Chef Derek did. Generous serving of thr fish itself donned with lump crab and corn that melts in your mouth. I cannot wait to return to explore more options on the menu. The wine selections are naturally of note and the cellar is top notch. Bravo, Chef, Bravo!

    We had a nice evening at Bob's. Well prepared food and attentive service. We were seated in the back room and while quite cozy, the noise level did preclude some casual conversation. We had a particularly spirited group of four men next to us and when they were boisterous, we found ourselves repeating things a few times. The room's acoustics may be the problem. If you have hearing issues, ask to be seated in the main dining room.

  • There's the beef!
    Streetwise
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    Excellent beef with great service will get my vote every time. That being said I found their prices as much as 20% higher than comprable restaurants in Houston for both food and drink. Their most expensive steak on the menu was $89. Seriously? I have purchased whole cows for not much more. But all in all a great experience.

    My wife and I dined at Bob's in celebration of our 40th wedding anniversary and couldn't be more pleased with our selection. The waiter was attentive and anticipated our every need. Our meals were excellently prepared and presented. We had planned to order shrimp and steak items but, based upon the waiter's recommendations, ordered lamb and sea bass dishes. We are both delighted that we tried something different.

    My husband had seen this restaurant on skymall and would not stop talking about it for a few weeks early on this year. A few months past and I made reservations for his birthday. They called me the morning of our reserved date to not only confirm, but to get his name so that they could make a birthday card for him. Once we arrived, they greeted us kindly and said happy birthday to him at the door by the hostess, as well as at the table by our waiter. The entire experience was wonderful. We had a wonderful server and the food turned out great. Just remember that it is on the higher dollar scale or else you'll get ticket shock.

    Took my wife here for our 11th wedding anniversary. Food was perfectly prepared and our server Andrew was on par with any server in Vegas' best steak houses! Scallops were fresh and Creme Brulee was to die for. Was somewhat surprised by the noise level of the restaurant but could be explained by the intoxicated Aggies near the bar...

The food is always amazing. If you like a good steak, I recommend the porter house or the smaller ribeye. Great flavor. My wife loves the duck and the salmon.

    From the minute we were seated the server Paul met all our needs and was up to date on the menu and the nights specials. Without telling him he picked up on that it was a birthday celebration and at the end of our meal brought a dessert menu and said to pick any one dessert item for the occasion that was on the house. A very enjoyable experience and I would recommend to other people.

    My husband and I had been given a gift certificate for this restaurant and we decided to use it to celebrate our anniversary. We started out with a martini at the bar, which was superb. When we were seated at our table we found a small bottle of champagne waiting for us, along with a card from Bob's signed by their waitstaff. It was such a nice touch. Our waitress was very professional, but she did not have much of a personality. Still, the service was fine. I just wished that she would have responded with a more vibrant personality - but I just don't think she had that in her. The wine steward, on the other hand, could not have been better and he more than made up for her. The food - fabulous, and the wine - perfect. We'll be back.

    This was one of many visits to Bob's, but this time was a little disappointing. Althoiugh the management was still great, the quality of my steak was not has good has it has been in the past. Still a great place with excellent food. It just seems to be dropping in having an overall eating experience for price being paid. I just did not fell it was the " exceptional " restaurant I have visited in the past.

    We have been to Bob's several times and they never disappoint. Steaks are always great, and cooked just as ordered, and the sides are generously portioned and always wonderful. We really loved the addition of the daily special list and have tried several of them. Carpaccio was great, but if you want a special treat order the tenderloin chili appetizer. Probably the best chili I've ever had. It's a bit spicy, but this is Chili, and you are in Texas!!

OUTSTANDING service, EXCELLENT food, AWESOME menu, DELICIOUS wine ...what else can you ask for?

    She had the Restaurant Week menu: Choice of salad (tossed or Caesar), Filet Mignon/Salmon/Pork Chop, Carrot/Chocolate Cake. It was a great deal at $35, and all items were outstanding. As for me: I chose the Bone In Ribeye, with a Wedge (before) and a Brownie (after), and it was all awesome. We appreciate the fact that Bob's nailed the food, but also the friendly, attentive service - everyone from the valet (complimentary), bus boys, servers, and managers (we met Patrick, the GM) all made us feel special and welcome.

    San Antonio has many good steak houses but this is one that serves side dish with your steak. We had a great time and everything was cooked perfect! Staff was knowledgeable and friendly as well. Parking is terrible & we went on a Thursday night. Give yourself time to park or wait for the complimentary valet.
