There was also a deli not more than a couple miles from hotel that was very good,. Wonderful lunch place. Soups, salads, fresh meat deli sandwiches or buy by the lb. if you chose. Daily specials. Loved the quiche.

The fish and chowder are the best we have found in the area. Great food for a great price. Definitely worth a visit.

We met relatives here for lunch. It was the first visit for us. Two of us had the salmon salad and it was really delicious. The other two had clam chowder and it, too, was delicious. For two of us, the bill was under $20. The people who take your order are pleasant (you order at the counter), the atmosphere... More

I am having clam chowder, and Beth is having a cod sandwich. Bob's doesn't look like a fancy place, but it is one of the highest rated for tasty food in Anacortes.

We were surprised at how good it was, considering the cheap prices. We placed to-go orders on two nights, food was ready within 10 minutes. Good Chowder.

The seafood sampler basket was pretty good, but use every inch of room in your stomach to have their "Chowder" I love Clam Chowder and this place literally has to be in the Top 5 of anywhere I have ever had it. It has a neat old fashion dinner atmosphere with outside seating along the road. Neat place

Okay, if you are in Anacortes, and are looking for a Google fix of fish n chips, look no further than Bobs. Place your order at the counter, pick out a drink and they will deliver promptly to your table. Casual inside and outside seating available. Salmon wraps, chowder and good slaw with a light sauce is hard to beat.... More

We each had the chowder which was good, but I wouldn't put it in my top 10 chowders. It was suggested to us to get the fish tacos as they were "awesome". They tasted fine, but were mostly shredded cabbage with a little bit of fried fish in the bottom of each one with a white sauce on them. When... More

The chowder is very good, lots of items, creamy, a tad bit too much bacon flavour though. The oyster and shrimp batter was ok, just run of the mill flavour nothing outstanding. Fries could have used some salt immediately after coming out of deep fryer.

Simple seafood place with basic, but quality food. We were there just before closing time, but they still got everything out quickly and perfectly cooked. Not fancy, but nice place.
