Loved the breakfast pizza!
The best clean food!
Saturday Morning Breakfast place~ almost hate to share it, but love the place enough to want them to succeed beyond bad weather and politically charged USA. Because the food and atmosphere are so worth waking up for and grabbing your favorite friend for breakfast or brunch at least a couple times a month! Pete keeps his counters clean, his food hot, his tables happy, and his decor interesting and blooming! Bobby’s Barrel is full of fun, with many great recipes to try, quality delicious food, and wonderful Lake County atmosphere. Friendly people serve friendly people! It is wholesome food, with antiques and novelties on the wall and blooming pots surrounding garden seating. It is a Bloody Mary with Sunday morning egg casseroles or Mimosas with mouth watering brunch next to a pot of sunflowers and a side of breakfast pizza. You make your meal the special occasion and let them provide their best recipes that pack ‘em in day and night! There are scars on the tables and nicks on the wood and yet, there is nothing served that doesn’t come hot and fresh or cold and bubbly from the kitchen or bar due to Pete’s rigorous standards! There are some places we live to eat out in on the weekends, to get our favorite meals before the game or shopping, or just to meet for breakfast because the atmosphere is friendly and there is seating at the counter or outside on unusual fun occasions when we just want to make the meal an occasion itself- that’s Bobby’s Barrel! The specials are just that~ SPECIAL. Good cooks are essential to the success of Bobby’s Barrel and they dig deep to find them and keep them! Cranberry French Toast, Breakfast Pizza, Polish Sausage and Egg Casserole~ they stock take- home containers because the portions are large! We’re going back after our granddaughter’s fall softball game next Sat and probably for Fri Fish Fry soon because we met people at the counter this morning and set a date to see them back at Bobby’s- why not? It’s that kind of place! Parking: No problem for us on a Sat morning in Aug, paved lot
100% RECOMMEND THIS LONGTIME EATERY! On a spur of the moment, we stopped in for lunch and who do we happen to sit next to ... owners Bobby & Candi who were having lunch with friends. (We both worked at the R.L. Baxter facility back in the 1980's & did lunch when we could at Bobby's Barrel Inn after it opened in 1983.) Today, we had the beer batter cod & Cajan catfish and it was AMAZING!!! Parking: There's plenty of free parking on both sides of the building.
Great food at affordable prices. Servers are very friendly, and Bobby makes a great cheeseburger pizza! Love this place!
Super tasty, very attentive staff really nice place
Best fish fry in the area and so worth the 18.50 price for all you can eat. A lot of cute memorabilia for a conversation piece and the service is fast and friendly.
Bobby Burger is my favorite one.
