Former Viking Bob Lurtsema serves up standard sports-bar fare amid walls of memorabilia. – In Short
Benchwarmer Bob's reminds you of what Bob Lurtsema's real-life rec room must be like: big-screen TVs, a roaring fire, and lots and lots of pictures of Bob and his friends. The restaurant serves standard sports bar fare in heaping portions to a rowdy crowd more intent on the game than the servers. Take heed when they say appetizers serve two to four, they mean it.
Night life like night and day – Granted Bob's may not be the best when it comes to food, but every Weekend this place transforms it's self from a sports bar to nightclub along with a hip young crowd and a very good live DJ. I would fo' sure recemend this place if your in the area on a Weekend considering the nearest place you could get that kind of ambeince would be Uptown Mpls. almost a 30 minute drive north I-35. As well to work off those hangovers on sunday afternoon, this is a top notch place to catch a Vikings game....Or really any Minnesota team.
Worst Restraunt Ever! – We went to Bob's on a Wednesday evening. We were promptly seated but didn't recieve a menu. I had to hunt down menus myself for our table and the tables near us. We placed our order at 7 pm for appetizers and our meals. It took 40 minutes to get our appetizers that were very simple, nachos. At 8 pm with still no dinner in site I told ourt waiter that I was very upset and wanted our dinners ASAP. Our waiter said that they were almost finished. At 8:15 pm I told the manager to cancel our order and that we were not paying for the appetizers. We had 3 tables seated after us that ordered, recieved their dinners and left before ours order was even looked at. Bob's was a huge waste of time.
Horrible – Benchwarmer Bob's was a horrible place. The service was terrible along with the food. I had to wait 40 minutes for a table, then It took a long time for the server to come to my table. They seemed to be in a hurry and were not very friendly. The food was not that great either. I would never recommend this Cafe to anyone.
