Bobby’s Deerfield is based loosely on our other location Café Lucci which we have developed since 1995. Similar to Café Lucci, Bobby’s Deerfield will serve as a true neighborhood locale, marked by our signature personal service and unmatched friendly atmosphere. However, Bobby’s Deerfield will be a more casual eatery, completely accessible in every way. Reminiscent of the iconic, nostalgic neighborhood restaurant of yesteryear, Bobby’s Deerfield will bring graciousness back to dining out, in a simple way, by turning out the best product and best service.

Bobbys is a gem! The atmosphere, food quality and variety and wine selection all add up to a great experience. The reception staff is not very friendly which is not very welcoming, but the overall experience is worth it once you make it past the front desk! Our waiter was very helpful with great suggestions, but was truly running in many directions at once. My husband had the dover sole which was prepared to perfection. I had the special gnocchi with shrimp and kale and it was delicious! The vanilla gelato was creamy and refreshing.

Couldn’t be worse if they tried. Obnoxious waitress. Even after I told her 3-4 times I wanted my burger MEDIUM WELL, I get served a bloody burger. She had the nerve to stand there and argue with me. She took it back and even though I repeated MEDIUM WELL, it comes back like a well done hockey puck. It was finally then that she admitted she wrote my order as Medium. Seriously? You have one job and you can’t take a burger order. Even though the chef made me the RIGHT burger, I had to wait at least 20 more minutes. My dining friend had finished and then I awkwardly ate. By this time I had lost my appetite. Plus our water glasses were never filled the entire night. Just a horrible experience.

We enjoyed an appetizer and split the Bobby’s salad. Food was excellent as was the service. As restaurant filled up, noise level became high.

We had an early reservation, upon arrival there was only one party dining on the patio, we requested the patio and was informed by the host it was closed. We were seated in the dining room, had our dinner and when we were leaving we noticed the patio was almost full with diners. We were very disappointed, it was a beautiful evening and the primary reason we went to Bobby’s Deerfield was to dine on the patio. Their are many other friendly restaurants on the North Shore with patios to consider!!!

Drinks were very good, both cocktails and wine.
I loved the seafood. Simply delicious.
The calamari could use more seasoning otherwise good.
Our waiter was very attentive and friendly.

Bobby's was once again a solid option for our small group dinner. the food is always good, the menu is broad with choices for everyone, the service is very good and the vibe is nice. We had the grilled octopus which was excellent, the Chicken Vesuvio was very good, and everyone in the party enjoyed their selection.

Very disappointed, food is decent but we sat in a room in the back and were told it was going to be quiet , but it was impossible to have a discussion without yelling, the room was very very loud and we left with a headache when we made the comment to the manager, his response was obnoxious and didn’t even apologize, I don’t think we will go back there any time soon.

It was very very noisy and difficult to hear and converse. By 6 o'clock it was overly noisy. Very badly needs sound dampening . Our waitress kept using the word, 'we' multiple times as in "What do 'we' want to order tonight?", "Are 'we' ready for dessert?', etc. rather condescending and annoying to say the least. The only time I have been talked to like this was once in the hospital a nurse used it, i.e., "It's time for us to have our shot not."

My wife and I love it there! The service is outstanding. Be sure to try the Shrimp Bobby appetizer and the double cut grilled pork chop. Even the hamburger is very good and very large. Tera miso is a great desert as well! We go there regularly.

Enjoyed a delicious Mother's Day dinner at Bobby's. First time at Bobby's andI was happy I made a dry run to make sure on how to get in to the parking lot. Very energetic crowd, and many families were enjoying dinner. Appetizers of Shrimp Bobby, Sausage and peppers were shared among us three. The Shrimp Bisque soup was hot and delicious. Fish selections were wonderful. The steaks were cooked to our tastes, tender and juicy. I had the Chocolate Mousse cake which was light texture with rich chocolate flavor. Outstanding!! Other desserts were just as delicious.

We had such a wonderful experience from the moment we were greeted with such enthusiasm. Our server was kind, patient, incredibly knowledgeable and mindful of some of the allergies at the table. I cannot wait to return and experience the rest of the menu and wine along with bourbon selection. This was one of the best beef tartare and liver we had ever. Our food was prepared with freshness and presented with elegance. The staff was so nice and mindful to change plates and fill our glasses. Thank you for the amazing experience. My family and I really are truly looking forward to our next dining experience.

We had a lovely experience celebrating two birthdays. We shared a bottle of Moscato. I had their soup of the day which was a split pea and it was delicious. They had a striped Seabass special with macadamia nut crust and it was absolutely amazing. Love this place!

Bobby's was delicious and fun, but noise level was uncomfortably high, even in the back room. We had a round table of eight, yet it was difficult to have a discussion with more than two people at a time due to loudness.
