Stopped in Wednesday night before Thanksgiving. I knew the place was small and I called ahead to make sure they were open due to the holiday. They said a big party was coming in so I went ahead and made a reservation. Glad I did the place was packed before we left. Small neighborhood type bar and grill. Service was... More

We have eaten at Robbie's quite a few times so we went there Saturday to celebrate my birthday and Father's Day with some friends. The atmosphere in the restaurant is so personal it's hard to beat. After dinner we were asking about desserts (not that we were hungry) but since it was my birthday I was asking if they had... More

My Dad and Suzanne lived in Decatur during the 80's and 90's. Robbies was the first place I learned to enjoy truly great food. They were always kind and gracious to the little kid, then little man. When I think of Decatur, Robbies is ALWAYS right at the top! I miss those times.

While there were amazing smells coming from the restaurant, we unfortunately did not experience that first hand. My sea bass was terrible. I've never had fish that I had to struggle to cut with a steak knife! It wasn't seasoned. I wasn't cooked thoroughly. The waiter was smug... wearing flip flops and sunglasses on top of his head. McDonald's staff... More

Great downtown restaurant with a simple menu but not simple flavors!! Order the Grilled Cajun meatloaf. It comes on a pile of mashed potatoes and gravy and will blow you away. Their burgers are top notch and the stuffed green pepper soup is outstanding. Always friendly service, and very affordable.

My husband and I love to eat here on week nights whenever possible. We like the fact that it is small so it is not overly loud. The service is always personal and top notch. The best part is that we have never had a bad meal here. As a side, the sugar snap peas are one of my favorites!... More

We've been to Robbie's several times and have found the food to be good hearty Central Illinois fare. We especially like the lunches which feature a grilled cajun meatloaf. It comes with mashed potatoes and green beans and is far different from what Mom use to make. If you like spice that Bayou Shrimp is a treat. It is a... More

Robbie's was always one of my favorite lunch getaways when I lived in Decatur. I always found it to be a pleasant escape with nice atmosphere and quality food. The menu is unique with gourmet dishes that change dailey. Never a bad meal, always a pleasant surprise. I miss not living in town. When I get back to Decatur, Robbie's... More
