There was a wedding party in the main dining room. Between the speeches and laughter it was annoying to the other dinners. Parties like this should be done in the private dining room.

Although the wait staff was nice, I hardly ever saw my waiter and the refills dwindled. The steak was a little too salty, the carrot was off putting and too sweet, and the potatoes and gravy were too peppery. Overall making it a mediocre steak house.

I took my husband to Bobs for his Birthday celebration. This was our first visit and we were excited to enjoy a great experience and celebrate as we heard so many good reviews on the restaurant. Unfortunately after the appetizers, everything went sideways. My filet came out of the kitchen fatty, grizzly, cold and accompanied by a half baked potato! Our serve explained that he was having the chef check the potatoes. I’m not sure what that had to do with our dinner nor am I clear on the ambivalent and casual nature of his response. Yes he credited us for my filet and offered a dessert. At that point we were not interested in dessert as the excuses about poor quality potatoes and the chef pulling bad ones doused any enjoyment of our meal.if this is 5 star service,Bobs is poorly mistaken!
It would have been appropriate to have been greeted by a manager or communicated in a professional and appreciative manner. God bless you Bobs. I pray your poor business acumen ceases soon.

The ambiance and service were great. The food overall was good and the wine list appropriate. I thought that the ribeye steak would have been better if cut thicker, thought of the same weight. If truly a prime cut, it was not up to par. Their hallmark glazed root carrot dominated the plate and seemed more of a novelty than an appropriate garnishment.

Great, great, great! You will see some reviews saying that it’s expensive, but expensive is relative. I’ve had great food in great places all over the world, but what really makes the experience special is the service. If you’re lucky enough to get Courtney as your server you should have no complaints. She doesn’t treat what she does as just a job, to her it’s a career! Request her, enjoy your evening and go there hungry. Also, embrace the carrot!

We went to Bob's Steak and Chop House with thoughts and expectations of previous dinners at Ruth's Chris and Capital Grill in mind. Unfortunately Bob's does not even come close to those other steak houses. My wife and I both had steaks; she had the ribeye and I had the NY Strip. Both were cooked OK but they lacked "steak" flavor. My wife covered hers with the mushroom side dish and the accompanying mushroom juice to give the entrée some flavor. My NY Strip had an unusual sweet aftertaste unlike any steak I have ever had. Good steakhouse meat flavor was totally missing.

The entrees were served with smashed potatoes and the biggest whole carrot I have ever seen. The carrot took up the entire middle of the dish. The carrot and the smashed potatoes had good taste but the carrot detracted from the balanced presentation of the dish. Carrots are fine but they should serve them in a different way that is more appetizing.

My wife had a side of mushrooms which she enjoyed. My side of creamed spinach was not very good. The dish looked like it had been made hours ago or perhaps frozen and reheated. It was tasteless. I look forward to good creamed spinach at steak houses. This one was a disappointment.

After we were seated our server delivered a large jar of pickled cucumbers and peppers to our table along with a loaf of bread. The bread was fine but the pickled veggies did not go well with our aperitifs.

The best part of the dinner experience at Bob's is the wine list. A very nice selection with relatively modest pricing. Our 2016 Mt. Veeder Cab was the hit of the evening.

Very pleased with the prep of all our menu choices. Our barman/server (from Stuart, FL) was excellent for his fine cocktails, friendliness and efficient table service. Very pleased to see such an extensive liquor selection and comprehensive wine list at reasonable restaurant prices.
Somemwhat disappointed that there are only two booths in the restaurant to accommodate more than 2 persons - one of which is in the passageway to the bar. Overall, a pleasant experience worthy of revisiting if the quality remains high.
