The food was fine, nothing exceptional given the pricing. The service was really slow considering the number of staff visible at any given time. The decor is a bit too faux for me and the attempt at being fine dining just doesn't hold up in so many ways.Food: 4/5

We ate at Bobby's while on vacation celebrating our 30th anniversary and we could not have made a better choice! The dining room was quiet and our waiter was terrific--always at the ready to serve. We engaged the owner with some questions about Alaskan halibut and she was very patient in her response--really taking the time to make us feel cared for. We both ordered the halibut {prepared two different ways) and it was delicious. She even gave us the secret to roasting the accompanying carrots to perfection. For dessert we had a hard time deciding what to order, but went with a chocolate mousse to share--the perfect end to our meal. If you're in Fairbanks, you've got to go to Bobby's.

Was okay. Saganaki was cold and was not flash fired table side like it's supposed to be. Stuffed grape leaves were good but we're not warm enough especially in the center. Waiter was nice but did not know the characteristics of the only 2 white Greek wines on the menu.

Amazing and authentic Greek food, as good as the stuff in Greece! Staff is always very welcoming. Needed a reservation for weekend dinner but had no problem accommodating a group of 12 on a weeknight.

This is a great Restaurant I can highly recommend. Bobby and Rena have some of the best staff, food and atmosphere you can possibly expect anywhere in the world. If you like great food and good service this is the place to go.


I found this place to be average. My gyro meat was very dry... And to compensate for it they put a ton of tzatziki. The side dishes with the gyro platter were pretty good.


Bobby and Rena have one of the nicest restaurants I’ve ever been to. The food is fantastic the staff are extremely helpful and professional. I can highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Food was meh, not a whole lot of seasoning. I had ordered the Greek salad, might as well have given me the whole vegetables ? by how big the slices were lol then ordered the prime rib, zero type of flavor or anything on the entire dish. Service was okay, and our waitress was good. But definitely won't go back and won't recommend at the price of the food.

The establishment is nice inside and looks a little fancy but not too fancy. The staff was very welcoming and the service was good. The food wasn't great but it was ok. I ordered the steak and fettuccine and it wasn't what I expected at all. The steak was good but the noodles were VERY tangy/sour with what seemed like maybe a vinegar. Not good at all and I could not eat them. The ranch on the house salad was also not the greatest. A friend ordered the honey halibut which I tried and that was ok. Better than what I ordered. I also ordered baklava for desert and you get one piece for $8 and it also wasn't the greatest. Had a strong cinnamon flavor and was a lot different than baklava I've always had in the lower 48. Its just disappointing to spend so much at a restaurant and not be happy with the food.

I kept trying to give this place a chance but the first time i came here with my boyfriend it was ok but we didn't feel like the service was up to par. Today we have waited 1 hour and 30 mins just to get our entree and by the time we got it it wasn't good and extremely disappointed. We are waiting for a check and it's already been 15 mins, so many servers/busboys but terrible service. Unfortunately we will never be coming back here again. Out waitress was extremely nice but at the same time it shouldn't take 45 mins for drinks, 30 mins for water and app, and a hour from when we got the app to get the entree. Meat was medium well done but i ordered medium rare. Asparagus tasted like gasoline or like they used a old stove but it tasted wrong and currently throwing it up. House wine was very off and had white stuff floating in the wine. I can't believe the service that I actually got treated today. It literally felt like they forgot about us, it doesn't help that the staff at the bar especially the woman looked extremely drunk and couldn't even stand straight. To be honest their interior is very homely but it makes the place look like it is worth more than it should be. The food is definitely not worth the price that you're paying for and I would 100% recommend cooking at home because the food has straight up so much butter in it. I recommend no one coming here and I do not recommend coming here especially if you are supposed to have a low sodium diet or a low fat diet this is not the place for you to be. Currently showing up because the food is to oily and it just doesn't taste right

What an awesome experience! Our waiter, Gordon, was super helpful and patient while we navigated food allergies at the table. Anything he didn't know he was quick to find an answer for. Bobby even popped into the kitchen and ensured everything was safe for us!Great food. Great service. We will be back for sure!

Very nice relaxing atmosphere with good selection of food. Please note there is a second menu if you sit at the bar! Good bar and amazing food - love the heated bar rail!

We waited hours for our food. The soup was flavorful. My dinner was salty and somewhat disgusting, ordering stuffed grape leaves, I didn't eat halve of it. They were swimming in some really salty gravy. No one at my table enjoyed the food. Luckily my bill was under $40 others spent near $100 and we were all severely disappointed. Do not eat here. Save your money unless you think cooked carrots are worth forty bucks. I thought about sending my food back every bite and the rest of my party felt the same way. Maybe the google reviews for this place are influenced by friends and family? Again did not even eat half though we were extremely hungry due to the wait. Fairbanks has plenty of delightful places to eat, skip Bobby's.

My wife and I are from Los Angeles, so we are used to having high expectations. This is a great place if you like Mediterranean food. Cacy, our server knew her stuff. Overall, it was a great experience.


We were very pleased with the service (Brian), the decor felt like a greek museum in a good way. The food was tasty and plentiful. We enjoyed the margarita, the greek lasagna and the greek wine list.
