Bobby’s Restaurant and Bar in Singapore's CHIJMES, close to City Hall station, is above all else home to the city centre’s finest ribs. There are pretenders to the crown for sure, but when the chips (and the coleslaw) are down, Bobby’s American-style diner emerges triumphant every time. This Victoria Street staple has been proving its mettle in the rib department since 2006, having nailed down its winning rib formula. The team prides itself on its sinfully tempting ribs and it’s easy to see why. Their fans are legion – join them.
From the moment diners make their way from City Hall and are ushered into Bobby’s dining room, they know that the team mean business. Since its renovation in 2011, Bobby’s has dropped the all-American feel in the dining room, and replaced it with a serious industrial aesthetic, all exposed brick walls, steel piping and gas lanterns. Victoria Street and the CHIJMES complex is fortunate to have a restaurant with the longevity and reputation like Bobby’s, but even more fortunate to have access to Bobby’s BBQ ribs!
While ribs are Bobby’s bread and butter, the restaurant offers plenty besides that keep things interesting. There are classic bar snacks like potato skins and nachos, as well grilled salmon, faijtas and BBQ chicken, all given the Bobby’s American grill treatment. And, of course, there’s not a salon-joint anywhere in the US that doesn’t offer serious drinks, so expect a great range of beers and an ambitious cocktail menu. CHIJMES is a popular location in close proximity to City Hall for celebratory events in Singapore owing to its handy central location, and Victoria Street’s Bobby’s is no stranger to this. In fact, Bobby’s is at its best when catering to larger groups. Head over to Bobby’s daily between 5pm and 2am and find out for yourself exactly how good sinfully tempting ribs can be.
I came here with my boyfriend as he was craving for western food. We both really like the ambience, food and service was great! Highly recommended
The food and service were amazing. We had a hangover burger and ribs. One of the best in Singapore. A bit pricey but with their one -for- one/Groupon offers, it's worth every $. Kudos to Sharif, the assistant manager for being so hospitable!
I heard about Bobby from one of my friends. This is the first time I patronized Bobby. The food tastes good and the ambiance is nice.
Easy to locate the place because it is just next to City Hall MRT. The atmosphere was nice with delicious food and the waiter's attitude was good.
Bobby's is one of our favourite chill out places after work. The ambiance, good food and location make for a relaxing experience. Service is also commendable. It's quick, good product knowledge by the staff and they try to their best to delight the guests. Hope they consider extending the happy hours though...
Poor service standard. Food taste normal, nothing outstanding. Waited for 10 mins just to settle a bill. Cannot justify the service charge and GST amount, it is 50 cents more than we ownself calculated. The bill ends with 84 cents and Bobby's round it up to 85 cents. It is not about the 50 cents or 1 cents more as if it is not affordable. But I think there is an issue with Bobby's charging principle.
I had a great dinner at Bobby's. But i'll have to say that they need to improve their service a tiny bit. Overall, Bobby's is a good restaurant to visit. The foods are good as well.
The food and drinks was yummy and reasonably priced, the ambience was very good too. The truffle fries was our favourite and Pumpkin salad was surprisingly good as well. The wine selection was rather limited though. The service staff were very friendly but visibly short handed. There were only 2 or 3 of them and we had to wait for quite a while before they attended to our requests. Overall it was a good experience and I will go back again.
I ordered the ribeye steak at $34.99 and Bobby's Nachos $14.99, which is almost $50 for the main course and appetiser. The nachos tastes great with salsa, sour cream and mince beef. The ribeye steak is so so only probably due to the wrong choice of sauce, red wine sauce.
Food was excellent and service was better than expected. Overall a very pleasant experience at Bobby's American Restaurant and Bar. The portions were more than sufficient as well.
