I usually go straight from the airport to Bobbejan's when I arrive. Excellent fish dinners. Large tasty portions. Nearly always crowded, so go early or be prepared to wait. I usually phone ahead and order takeout. The staff are pretty good at estimating the time...More

Go for takeout! We called ahead for 6 people and it was ready and waiting. Big portions of everything maybe except for the grilled fish. Get extra peanut sauce, it was great. I can see why people rave about this place. It was good quality...More
