If you haven't been to Bobby's Downtown on 2nd Ave...you're missing out! This restaurant features a menu that will treat your taste buds to a variety of both American and Greek fare. In addition to the tasteful décor, which transport you across the ocean, Bobby's full bar acts as a respite for the weary following a long day. My friend... More

The food was good but pricey. We ordered the Surf & Turf special. The pork chop was fall off the bone tender; the vegetable sides were lukewarm at best; everything had good flavor. Service was quietly efficient.

I hadn't been to Bobby's in a long time, so was pleasantly surprised recently to find that the service and food were both excellent. Prices are high, so be prepared. There's really nothing on the menu for folks who don't want to spend a lot; even the appetizers are beaucoup bucks, even compared to other higher priced places in Fairbanks.... More

We had never been to Bobbys after all these years, and we decided to find a new restaurant because our bad experience at our regular spot. When we walked in we were immediately seated, the atmosphere was formal and even though I was dressed in shorts and a tshirt - we got the most amazing service! The food was spectacular... More

Bobby's has a wide variety of items on the menu. I ate there multiple nights on my last visit to Fairbanks and loved everything. He also has the best pizza I have ever tasted.

Came here for dinner after checking reviews. Should have gone to the bistro nearby. This place has crazy slow service and the food sucks. You have been warned !

Greek & Mediterranean food just average...over priced for the food & drink but centrally located downtown. Bar is a go to place after work...loud & noisy, but also adequate.

We had spectacular lamb chops and fettuccine with mushrooms. Done to perfection! Our server was friendly and fast. And the owner, Bobby, was a delight. We hope to return before leaving Fairbanks this weekend.

Food was not cheap and not good. Pizza was awful and my husbands shrimp dish which was not cheap, had 4 small little shrimp and a bowl full of sauce. The owner/chef walked around filling his glass with wine and buying the locals wine. Then walked over and tried to badger us into liking his food when we said it... More
