I enjoyed my wife's birthday dinner at Bob's. She had seven fired Oysters and I the fish and chips. The Anaco Inn recommended this place and one other. But this was just across the street. Very good food and very reasonable prices.

My husband loves chowder and orders it whenever possible. He was so excited to get a bowl of this famous chowder - and he was kind of disappointed. The chowder wasn't hearty and full of clams and was a bit thick. The bowl he got...More

We each ordered something different: Curry soup and salad, calamari and fries. Surf and fries. Very fresh food. Friendly servers with good service. We are definitely going to return.

Bob's is located on the far east side of town almost out of town. Easy parking. You order at the counter and they bring the food to you. The food is reasonably priced below the others in town. Their clam chowder is great and also...More
