The fish tacos and rib eye were amazing. The staff did a wonderful job catering to my 2 year old grandson.

Bob's is so convenient when staying at the hotel. The menu has a nice variety of good food. Undoubtly you meet a few characters while dining / or having a drink which adds to the wonderful experience of the hotel.

My husband and I enjoyed drinks, the mushroom appetizer and the burger--all wonderful. Honestly one of the best burgers we have had in a long time. Great service at the bar and as always a check in and smile from the owner, Jay.
