Good sandwiches and hamburgers. Is closed during the winter but a fun spot to go during the summer months.

Right at the 14th Street beach, there has been a restaurant on this site as long as I can remember. I think it was once the College Grill. They have good beach food as reasonable prices. We have eaten breakfast and lunch here. They also offer fresh hot donuts...great! A side tip is that if you rent bicycles at Bob's... More

We have been enjoying meals at Bob's for over 50 years. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served. The food is always good and the service has always been excellent. Prices are very reasonable and they cater to the kids. Walk on in and enjoy.

We got up early and walked down to Bob's for breakfast since the sign on the window had stated it would open at 8:00 a.m. It was totally dark inside, no one around and the sign still said it would open at 8:00 a.m. We were disappointed since we always stop at Bob's for breakfast when in Ocean City.

We have been coming here, while in Ocean City since my grown kids were little. We have always enjoyed it. We sit upstairs so we can overlook the beach and boardwalk and take in the scenery...The staff is friendly. The food is admittedly not fine cuisine, but honestly, that's not the point. Order a drink, and lite bite, and relax... More

Man, these guys can cook breakfast! Corned beef hash, eggs over easy, rye toast smothered in butter, and the most perfect portion of home fries w/onions - everything was cooked and seasoned to absolute perfection! That's right, I said "seasoned", as in these people are not afraid to add flavor to compliment food. This was no trip to Bland Diner... More

Arrived to Ocean City early while most people were fleeing from Tropical Storm Hermine bearing down on the coast. We had reservations with our friends at a nearby hotel, so while we waited for our room to be prepared we went to breakfast at Bob's Grill. Needless to say they were overwhelmed with people that wanted to eat before getting... More

Not sure how I feel about eating in a place where the bathrooms are that nasty. Breakfast is always a treat and the beach view (and breeze) make it worthwhile. Skip it for lunch or dinner however, the food is only mediocre at best.

Bob's always was a stop in past years for breakfast. This year when we went, there were menu changes, and of course the prices have escalated. Our favorite waitress who was a teacher was not there as well. It has a great view on the second floor.
