Bob's Steak & Chop House - Dallas on Lemmon Avenue
Book your next event with us
Its was really cold in there that by the time my dinner was served in less than 3 minutes it got cold.
With a reservation we waited 20 minutes (standing up in the entry way). Restaurant is loud, crowded and caters to large, noisy groups (we dined on a Wednesday night). Food not worth the aggravation- I prefer other steak houses to Bob’s.
We've been to Bob's several times including the one in Austin, TX. Tonight we found the food just okay. The steaks were poorly seasoned and cooked, they were saturated in oil. The calamari was fried to a crisp. The staff was working so fast and furious, they actually had a very "I don't have time for this" attitude. for a $500 check you expect way better food & service.
The steak was great, the service was excellent, and the dirty dirty martini was outstanding! However I would not recommend the creamed spinach. I love creamed spinach, but the flavor was awful!
Always leave very happy
We were so disappointed tonight. Shown a 4 top for 2 people by the busy entrance, I was in a nice dress, my husband in a suit. Transferred to a 2 top. An hour and 20 minutes later we had finished a bottle of wine, shrimp medley that was sloppily presented, and salads that were delivered by another waitress( because OUR waitress disappeared for 15 min. and never took our order)that had to take it back due to the drowning of salad dressing that we had requested on the side. Yikes. We watched multiple tables get their main courses and leave. We ended up leaving due to the lack of service and of course, no steaks. Manager apologized and offered us a to go and a repeat dinner. No and no. Too many other places in Dallas to frequent. We will not return.
Honestly I'm comparing it to other great experiences I've had at Bob's. Wait staff wasn't as attentive or polished as I once remembered. Two people at the table ordered the bone in ribeye. Both of us left 85% of the steak there because it was an awful cut of meat. Not what I'd expect from a fine dining experience When paying a premium I as most would expect a premium in return, and on this they did not deliver. Let me also preface that I'm not a person that leaves bad reviews or even notifies the staff when such occurrences happen. Most times it's a bad experience at a $5 burger place or teenagers getting paid nothing to work retail. I am a person that believes in value for value, my dollar exchanged for a similarly good product and experience. Hope this helps for future improvement.
This is a top must eat if your in Dallas. The original is in lemon street. First time for my birthday and I hope will go down at the best ribeye I have eaten. The server directed me to they're signature bone in ribye. What an awesome choice the first bite was like a happy dance in my mouth it was perfectly cooked perfectly seasoned and the taste was mouth watering. Hands down a hard steak to beat and I have eaten at some steak places.
This has become our anniversary dinner restaurant. The food and service are amazing.
We told our waiter how disappointed we were that we paid $17.00 for 3 shrimp cocktail. 2 shrimp were very clean but 1 was not prepped properly. I took a photo. Gary, our waiter said that he would let someone know. No one came to our table to apologize or take the shrimp cost off of our ticket and the waiter never followed through. For a nice restaurant like this we were very disappointed.
Plus we do not feel we should have to pay to park to eat. It is mandatory to valet park at this restaurant. The customer is charged the fee. No a good experience. We go to many nice restaurants and have never experienced this kind of treatment.
Loved Bob's! The service was amazing and the food was well priced.
Birthday celebration. Food and service were wonderful. Especially appreciated their asking my preference for my complimentary birthday dessert!
Fun dinner with great food! Bob’s never disappoints!!
Quiet Thursday night dinner with a friend. The service was fantastic and our wine glasses were promptly filled when they got low. I was a little disappointed in the prime ribeye, but the Brussels sprouts, salad, and mushrooms were delicious.
Food was cold. Service was not as good as our favorite location in Plano. For example, I asked for Tabasco sauce and it never came. I know it’s a minor thing but then don’t charge me 20% required gratuity! Upon arrival we had to wait under very crowded conditions near the bar, 4 people around one stool!
As always a wonderful dinner with wonderful service.
The food is always fabulous! Our server was Lisa and she was very attentive even though it was New Years!
Excellent as always with regards to food and service.
Great as always. We love our Bobs but on New Years Eve, it is LOUD!
The waitress was excellent, made my wife's 60th Birthday very special
Wonderful as always! Service was a little lagging from the kitchen. But waitstaff was great! Love going to Bob’s!
Delicious steak. Everyone in our party of 5 enjoyed their meal. I have food allergies & extra care was taken with my food. PB brownie dessert was amazing!
Food was good, room in back got loud fast. Wait staff attentive but took 3 attempts to get our checks split correctly.
Lacy our waitress was AMAZING!!!
We always love going to Bob’s for a special occasion. We went for my birthday and it was quite lovely! I felt bad to wimp out on dessert (not sure the waiter was pleased by my indecision, but that’s fine - I get it) I was simply too full to order more.
We left a very nice tip - we used a gift card which I expect generally terrifies the wait staff, so we took care to leave an extra good tip. It was a pleasantly plush experience with the holiday decor and music - loved it!!!
Surf and turf with Gorgonzola was delish, my filet was spot on. Yummy (huge) shrimp cocktail, tasty wedge salad, and traditional French onion soup. The crusty hot bread and butter is heavenly. The giant overly-spiced carrot (that accompanies every dinner) is an inegma, no one knows exactly why it is there, but it’s like an old friend - I usually bring it home and freeze it to reuse in a soup or stew (though generally, it just sits there). : ) I love the cozy ambience and the waiters do go out of their way to make it s great experience, especially if allowed to maintain their carefully planned ‘flow’, if not they will let you know (we’ve been many times over the years, and have noticed this) but overall - a fabulous night out, great quality and value for the price, with a highly attentive wait staff, and awesome bartenders and cocktails.
Will definitely return! : )
We had a great meal. The filet was so tender I cut it with a fork. The shrimp was perfectly cooked. The staff was very attentive. A great value!
Going to make this a Christmas Eve/ birthday tradition.
Everything about Bob's is simply wonderful - ambiance, staff, service, food. We go for very special occasions and always feel we have made the right choice.
Great food. Horrible ambiance. Like a cafeteria or diner with bad decor. Really dingy rooms if you are not in main dining room which we were - but they first tried to stick us in a back room that was horrible. Bar and front room are fine but then the rest is like a 1960s cheap restaurant that has never been updated.
Thanks for outstanding steaks. The service was unrushed on a very busy evening. We were not even aware of the crowds waiting in the bar area. We love to have steak at Bob’s. Our son from out of town was impressed and loved his porterhouse.
Always a wonderful experience! Food delicious and service impeccable!
Nice dinner, wagu steak so so, fillet was superb as was the chop. Atmosphere was awesome
First of all the food is amazing....but this place is extremely OLD and in need of a makeover. Places like this can still cater to the needs of their long term dinners but need to dip their toe into the idea of some much needed updating. This place is old, dark, and musty.
Been going to Bobs my whole life and the past 3 times I have been the service was slow and last time the waitress was kind of rude even. They forgot to box our food 2 times in a row. They brought me out the entirely wrong meal a few weeks ago.
Still great food but they do not have the 5 star service they used to. When I am spending $300 to $500 on a meal I want really good service.
Love it!!! My favorite place for special events and personal getaways. Never a disappointment. You always take great care in all aspects of my visits. Thank you.
Great service and steak was tasty and cooked to perfection.
It’s Bob’s. It’s always good.
Food was wonderful as usual, but sub par service. It was busy and food took a while which is understandable, but waitress should not disappear for 25 minutes while our glasses were empty.
Bob's (Lemmon Ave) was GREAT as always!! Food, service, ambience, cocktails--everything was outstanding!
