Dinner with friends. Service was very slow but waiter was super nice. Busy night and band playing but sound was too much for the space. Great music but could not talk/hear much. Awesome BBQ and sides.

Our first time back in quite a while and what an improvement! This is a gem of a place - one of the best servers ever - best of course was the fresh, excellently prepared food! If only the music wasn’t quite so loud, I would have given it a perfect score. Next time we go, if the music is still so loud I will ask for it to be turned down.

Absolutely! We had such a good time at Bobby Q's. We love the casual atmosphere, the diverse crowd and the awesome menu. We shared the Idaho Dream flatbread...OMG delicious & huge. I also love the baby backs. My husband had the chicken and St. Louis ribs. Just an awesome meal. There is something on the menu for everyone, even if you don't appreciate BBQ. We would recommend Bobby Q's to all our friends!

Best Nachos we’ve ever eaten, and my Wife grew up in LA, so that’s saying a lot.

Greeted nicely by hostess, waiter was friendly and made some drink suggestions. The waitstaff dress in casual clothes, not uniforms or matching shirts. hard to tell who is an employee and who is a patron. I was skeptical when our waiter wrote nothing down, but the meals were delivered accurately by another waiter who did not know which order went to which customer. I was handed my platter instead of it being placed in front of me. (pet peeve). I had to ask for wet naps 2x and water pitcher was never refilled. Food was plentiful and flavorful. Overall very good.

Happily discovered this restaurant via Open Table. Had a late lunch while the place was quiet. Can see how it would be loud and energetic at a more popular time. Friendly and excellent service! We had baby backs and a salad, both freshly and well prepared. Highly recommended!

We went for Fathers’ Day and it was a mess. We sat at pur table for 45 min before getting drinks and almost an hour and a half before getting food. I think they never assigned us a server (pretty sure the guy we eventually flagged down was a busboy and tried to do it himself). There was no manager there and none of the servers stepped in to help. They ran out of basic stuff by 6pm (cornbread, ribs - it’s a bbq place on Fathers’ Day...). The whole place just seemed in chaos.

Yes, we had major issues from 6:00-7:30. I wont bore you with the details but I (the owner) was in the kitchen trying to get things back on track and we had a server who was injured in the middle of service which set us back. I truly apologize for your experience! Its not our normal performance as you can see from a 5 star review on the same day. We cook everything fresh-ran out of St Louis ribs for an hour while they finished in the smoker. We sold 4x the amount of Cornbread we expected.

First time back to the new Bobby Q's since they moved from Westport. The menu is more varied, gluten-free options are clearly labeled and the food was delicious. My husband and friend tried the quesadilla which looked delicious and they said was fabulous. We all tried different drinks and entrees and again, everything was delicious. The service was wonderful, all of our orders came and were exactly right. Will definitely be going back soon!

We enjoyed the location in Westport, so we came to the new spot in Norwalk, but this location lacked the same atmosphere. The food was still good and enjoyed our meal.

Hi Katie-tough to recapture the atmosphere of that old building. We took this opportunity to change our look to fit our new neighborhood. Getting mostly great comments but I understand the positive feelings towards that old space. We had 11 great years in Westport but it was time for a change. Thanks for coming in and glad you enjoyed the food. We hope you will come visit us again!

I know they had trouble with their printer the night I ate there but the service was terrible. They had to take our order three times. It took 30 min for drinks to come out and they never checked on us. However, the brisket is great.

The food was good and the portion was just the right size. No children’s menu though and we had to ask for crayons. The waiters looked bored and disheveled and some stood around near our table. There was trash on the concrete floor which didn’t seem to bother the staff. Both men’s and women’s restrooms had run out of towels. I guess you get what you pay for.

Enjoyed the new Bobby Qs, but missed an old favorite - barbecue pulled chicken sandwich - please bring it back. Our server - forgot his name was great - helpful & personable - though actual delivery of food (by someone else) was slow. Liked the Dude Flatbread the most. Would prefer a sturdier bun - maybe pretzel? For the pulled pork sandwich. Ours was soggy & hard to pick up. Like decor

Upon arrival (5:30 reservations), there were roughly 8-10 parties eating. The hostess looked extremely sloppy in what she was wearing. The server took a long time to first meet us. My wife and I, and our three children, ordered drinks, an appetizer, and entrees. There was no silverware/napkins on the table. We waited 25 minutes, at which time all our food was brought out at the same time (drinks, appetizer and entrees). I informed the food runner we didn't want the appetizer at that point, and he was very rude. There was STILL no silverware on the table. I had to call a different waiter over to ask for silverware as they were very short staffed. Our waiter was friendly enough, but admitted at the end they didn't have enough people to operate properly. He was very apologetic and offered us a free dessert, which was very nice even though we declined. The food was very good but it's difficult to want to return to a restaurant where the service is that poor/unorganized. Again, the restaurant wasn't even busy. Half of it was empty. Just very disappointing.

Great food but abysmal service. From a waitress who brought one drink at a time (took 10 min for a Coke), showed back up once only when delivering and didn't even offer dessert to a bus boy dropping the dirty trays on my husband.

This restaurant has so much potential, I hope they better train their people.

We loved Bobby Q’s in Westport and were so disappointed at their Norwalk location. The hostess pretty much ignored us, the waitress blamed the long wait for drinks on the bar being backed up... then it was a backed up kitchen that didn’t send our meals out for almost an hour. There were two bright spots - a free drink as way of apology for the long waits, and the band. They were wonderful.
