I do not know how long Bobby’s Colorado Steakhouse has been in Bloomington, but I’m guessing it was a premier place back ‘in the day’ and still has a following by loyal customers. Those loyal customers may be older than the college crowd, but Bobby’s...More

Great prices, variety, quality, service, atmosphere, location, parking... What's not to like -- nothing?! It was our first experience and we'll return soon. Serves and seats everything from casual to fine in its several dining room alternatives -- the central gas fireplace was especially pleasant...More

We frequently dine here where you will find good quality food and fine service. The soup and salad bar is extensive and you can make yourself a healthy meal from its contents alone. My favorite dish is the Surf and Turf special with pasta marinara.
