Pretty good food but for that price ($500) the service should be better. We were moved into the rain and we had to ask to be moved under the awning. Everything else was fine but again service was really lacking.

The menu on line needs to be updated.
Escargot is on the menu online but the real menu in the restaurant is very abbreviated. Service was very good, as usual.

The food is great but really pricey. Definitely buy the Groupon for the Pri-Fixe Menu here.
Also... great sized kids portions.

Service is outstanding.

Our group was excited to go out again and get together.
The food especially did not disappoint. Steak was cooked to perfection as were the lobster and the appetizers.
Others in our party said the fish special was a little over done, but still enjoyed it.
Service was fast and attentive.
Excellent experience, would definitely go back and highly recommended.

My wife and I had the filet mignon. With it we had the salads and spinach and mashed potatoes as sides. We had carrot cake for dessert. The food was outstanding. The portions were very, very generous. The service was top notch. The price of the dinner--Groupon coupons--was well worth the cost. Bobby Van's should not be missed.

Service was great. The food was ok. I ordered the shrimp fettuccine and it may be helpful to have a description of the dish. I spent most of my time picking out mushrooms and roasted tomatoes than eating. 4 shrimp verses a plate full of mushrooms was very disappointing for a restaurant of this caliber.

Great return to Bobby Van’s Steakhouse! The service and food were excellent and it was nice to be seated outdoors even though we felt it was safe to dine indoors. The attentive staff offered hand sanitizer table-side, a welcome and considerate safety protocol. The Bang Bang Shrimp was delicious as always and we enjoyed the kitchen splitting the surf and turf special. Really enjoyed the prosciutto mac and cheese side as well as the carrot cake that rounded out an amazing dining experience!

Th food and the servers were impeccable! This was my second time purchasing a Groupon!! Again, it was said loudly...ohhhh you have Groupon. I showed the coupon as instructed. We were given the incorrect menu! Why offer the Groupon if you’re treated differently?

Pretentious. Sat outside. Wonderful service yet the prices were way too high. Yes, it is a “steakhouse” but the cost of the filet and salmon were out of line
The filet was slightly overdone for medium and the salmon was a small piece with what appeared was hoisin sauce slapped on at the end.
We split the pear salad and it was sufficient for 2

The whole experience at Bobby Van's Steakhouse was FANTASTIC! We were celebrating 3 birthdays and 2 college graduations, and the staff continuously congratulated everyone and made our party feel special (especially our waiter Nelson)! We used a Groupon so we had the prix fixed menu, but the menu options were really good and the food was absolutely delicious. This our first time there and we will definitely be back!

The side orders was not hot, only the plates. You only get one small loaf of French bread for a group of six, after that they charge for it. I love bread with my food.

Ordered lamb chops as an appetizer and that they were. They were quite small. Ordered blue cheese Brussel sprouts without bacon and the blue cheese definitely overpowered the sprouts. The macaroni and cheese was pretty good as well as the scallops. We ordered surf and turf and the lobster was over cooked. Friends of ours were in town on this trip and wanted to try a crab cake, needless to say it wasn’t what she expected. The crab cake was dry.
