The food at Bob's is consistently delicious. The steak is among the best in the city and the appetizers and sides are a great compliment. This time I had the bacon wrapped shrimp and fried lobster tail. Both dishes were perfectly prepared and very flavorful. Great service is another bonus!

There is nothing that you can say about Bob’s. It is one of the best restaurants in San Antonio. I highly recommend it to everyone and anyone which is sort of redundant. The food is absolutely great and you must try the wagu beef. However anything eat there is going to be good.

FOOD, ESPECIALLY THE STEAKS AND LAMB APPETIZER WERE EXCELLENT. (ONE STEAK, THE RIBEYE, WAS SALTY.)
DESSERTS WERE GENEROUS AND TASTY, ESPECIALLY THE KEY LIME PIE AND THE BROWNIE. BREAD PUDDING WAS A TAD DRY.
NOISE LEVEL PRECLUDED ENJOYABLE CONVERSATIONS.
DRINKS WERE GENEROUSLY POURED.

The steaks are simply amazing! Truly one of the very best filet mignon I've had. This was our first visit to Bob's. I didn't expect tvs playing sports, but was able to ignore it. Service was slow, but that could be due to holiday dining.
Don't miss the creamed corn, it's fabulous! The Mac n cheese was not our favorite.

I always wanted to try Bob’s Steak & Chop House, but it’s not close to where we live. When we couldn’t get reservations at Fleming’s for Thanksgiving we decided to try Bob’s. So glad w did. It was perfect. The food was great. Well worth it the drive. Will definitely be back!

Waiter was overwhelmed and forgot our appetizer in very busy environment. Did not get our order correct. Did not have frequent checks on us. Ultimately our check came and we were charged erroneously. Very uncharacteristic of the usual experience. Disappointed this time.

Took my date to Bob’s and we both ordered the 9oz filet; She asked for medium rare, I asked for black & blue. Upon getting our steaks, we had to send them back, as they weren’t cooked properly. Got them back a few minutes later and mine was close enough to what I’d asked for, and hers was no different. Needless to say she left hungry, and I was disappointed in the cooks for not knowing the proper way to do a steak, especially at a prime steak house.

Very good food, out bill for two people was 279 before tip. We has two appetizers, two mains, 2 glasses of wine, 5 beers and 2 deserts with coffe and tea. The fillets were great but with the fried lobster it was unique and something I would consider special. The carrot was a classy and cool thing as well. Definitely a place to impress. I wish they would not allow flip flops though.

We celebrated a birthday during our visit. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent! We made reservations and indicated we had a birthday. When we got there the server brought a birthday card signed by the staff. Very nice touch! We also got to select a dessert for the birthday boy! Oh, and those pickles! Love them! Great dinner!

I was expecting Bob’s to be a pinnacle of fine dining, but seemed ho-hum. The food is good not great. Service is better than good but not exemplary. Should not have TV in a top tier restaurant, TV is more suitable for sports bar.

We've loved Bob's for many years but tonight's experience was so disappointing that we are unlikely to return.
They did not have the ingredients to make 2 classic martinis: an Aviation or Last Word.
The steak was incredibly salty and undercooked.
The server felt compelled, for some reason, to fill our wine glasses to ¾ full creating mugs o' wine; maybe okay for a $25 bottle of wine or wine by the glass but not for a +$100 bottle.
Manager's explanation for the undercooked steak is that Bob's cooks steaks at a temp less than most. My guess is that they prefer to undercook the steaks so they can correct that with an additional cook of the same steak if patrons complain. A self-described "steaks and chop house" should be able to deliver steaks at the temp and description THEY describe.

Really enjoyed Bob's for my birthday. There was variety to the menu and the specials, but I'm a ribeye kinda girl. It was cooked perfectly and seasoned very well. Everything we ate was so good. Makes me sad the next special occasion in my life is six months out. Only negative was trying to get a good tablet. I made a reservation for two days in advance and noted it was for a birthday celebration. There was a lot of availability through OpenTable. We arrived on time and finely dressed. The first table they offered was in the back with the families with loud kids and patrons dressed in jeans / t-shirts, and in a walk way. Second one was in the servers walk way at the bar. I asked why we couldn't get a booth and was told they were all reserved. I almost walked out I was so upset. The restaurant was not full when we arrived or two hours later when we left. Eventually we were seated at a nice, quiet booth. Our server was top-notch. Hosts at the door, not so much. Lesson learned: I will specify booth or table "not in walk way" for next occasion.

Bob's at the Rim continues to be one of our local favorites. Great cocktails and steaks. Nice choice of sides. We're happy we can request no carrot but we know there are many who love that. Our steaks were just slightly underdone but it's hard to get just right when ordering medium rare. They weren't under cooked enough to return.
