    We went to Bob’s for our Anniversary and loved it! Joseph, our waiter, was fabulous! The food was everything we expected, wonderful! We will definitely recommend Bob’s to our friends.

    The service was great, valet was prompt and courteous. Food was very good. Eating out these days is expensive and pacific coast grill is no exception; but considering the venue with exceptional ocean front dining, it’s a still a good value. Only grip was that the outdoor space heaters were in poor repair; would have been great to have more functioning heaters. All in all; highly recommended!

    Very good as celiac I didn’t experience any setbacks. Food was clean and cooked well. Service was good, place was busy so making sure we got GF food was top priority just busy night waited to long in between appetizers and main courses. To all the places that see me not ordering booze lol my CC monthly statements are more than your rent… my reviews are all positive and 100% tru… now I have pics but typically I eat half the food before I snap a pic because I’m not a loser
