Worth a Steak Enthusiast trip! – Bob's has been through some owner changes but it's still Bob's.... dark, sort of mobster looking with an unassuming entrance with zero windows---were they in fear of a drive by? Or maybe fear of natural light?... or just want that typical dark, almost-need-a-flashlight-to-read-the-menu look? Anyway, the service is on par for a steakhouse and the steak is equally cooked right and juicy how most like it. I am just thrown off by the signature big orange carrot on every plate... what's up with that, doc? The carrot may be what is keeping some people returning, for me the carrot throws me off and bumps it down my steak house list a smidgeon, but only a smidgeon!
Amazing Steak House – Bob's is a great place to go with family and friends to enjoy an exceptional meal with a wonderful atmosphere. I would recommend Bob's to anyone, not sure why anyone would have a negative review.
Stay away! – The food was terrible. My filet mignon was super fatty. My husband's strip wasn't great either. There are better steak places in Dallas for the same price or less. Hibiscus, Nick&Sam's and Kirby's are all SO MUCH BETTER!!!!
Completely Confused – I have been to many of the "best" steakhouses in the country and find that I am very pleased 95% of the time. Occasionally it's just a bad night or the food is not to my liking in general or maybe the atmosphere isn't what I expected. I see a LOT of negative reviews for Bob's, which confuses me. I dine at Bob's regularly because in my experience it is consistently the best steak I have found. The service is always pleasant and prompt. The atmosphere is a little over the top sometimes but you know that is possible when going to Bob's. I am referring to the Lemmon location of course. I can't imagine a reason I would ever go to Plano for a steak. Maybe it's just the culture that turn first time visitors off. Maybe it's expectations of a steak cooked at Outback. Maybe I've been lucky these past years. It is also a little confusing as to why someone would go to Bob's and order a ribeye? Who does that? Anyhow. Perfect steak all the time. I recommend Bob's
The best steak I have ever had! – Wow! I traveled on business recently to Dallas and went here with my sales rep. We were late for our reservation because of traffic, but they got us seated in about 15 minutes after missing the time. The wine list had anything and any price range you are looking for including high end Cognac and dessert wines.
We started with the jumbo shrimp cocktail and crabcakes appetizer. Delicious! I lived in Baltimore for a year, and this is very close to the taste of a Maryland style crab cake. The shrimp were huge.
I had the bone in ribeye, and it melted in my mouth it was so good. Who needs kobe beef when you can get an outstanding steak this tender and juicy. The service was excellent.
I will go back every time I visit Dallas!
Service that is above and beyond what you could expect! – An evening here is well worth the drive into Dallas for us! We experienced service that was a touch above some of our other favorites. A great time all around and the steaks were perfect.
Very good ribeye – I had dinner here on Tuesday w/ a friend. We both had the bleu cheese salad for our appetizer which was good. My friend had the crab cakes for her entre. It was served cold which I did not like & it lacked much flavor. I had the bone-in ribeye which was very good. It was very flavorful and more tender than usual for a ribeye, almost like a filet.
Best steak in Dallas bar none! – I don't care what people say about other steaks in Dallas, (ie. Pappa's, Nick and Sam's, blah, blah, blah) Bob's is the best steak period! Everything about this place is awesome. Don't listen to these other reviews. They probably went to another steakhouse and got confused as to where they were. The steak is perfection! A bonus is that the menu is not completely ala carte, meaning that all entrees come with the best carrot ever cooked and choice of potatoes. And as mentioned before they have great martini's. You can't lose here.
Lousy customer service – I had stopped by earlier in the week to make reservations for my wifes birthday. The receptionist was very gracious and took all the information. When we arrived for our 7PM reservations we were seated quickly. Our server gave her spiel and left the menu's but told us she had a party of 25 which she was also serving. So we ordered our wine a glass of my favorite winerey in California and when that was served we ordered our meal salads and meat entree, I was surprised that it was cooked on a flat iron grill, I must admit it was well trimed so very little fat left on the meat. From that point on we were ignored as far as service was concerned, I called for the manager I told him I thought that the service was appalling and all he had to say was "I'm sorry" I reiderated that it was my wife's birthday but he had no comments. I told him that the menu represents service for the pricing which I did not feel we received and again all I got was "I'm sorry" as he hastily left the table. We ordered coffee and my wife was offered the standard dessert which comes with all birthday's. She chose the Key Lime Pie and it came with pastry instead of standard graham cracker crust, I have tasted better pastry from a super market freezer. I would not recommend my worst enemy to dine there.
Horrendous – I spent a truly miserable three hours at Bob's last weekend. Getting it out of the way first, the food was good, but not nearly worth the outrageous prices. I have had many steaks every bit as tasty at less than half the price.
The evening was off to a bad start when valet parking was virtually required and overpriced. Even with reservations, we had to stand in a long narrow hallway, basically unable to move, for over thirty minutes waiting for our table. When finally seated, the room was akin to a roomful of jet engines. The four of us had to lean forward and cup our ears even to be able to communicate in two-or-three word sentences. My ears are still ringing two days later.
There was a VERY long wait for the food to arrive. The meat was very good, but none of us could begin to enjoy it because of the din.
When the check arrived, we were charged for at least two items which we had not ordered. Rather than protest, we opted to pay the bill and get out to the street where we could get a relief from the noise. A smaller bank account was a small price to pay for the ability to hear again, albeit still with ringing ears.
Anyone opting to "dine" at Bob's does so at the risk of their pocketbook, their eardrums, and the subsequent realization that far preferable options abound in the Dallas area.
