3.65/5  rDev -7.6%

Atmosphere: It's a hole-in-the-wall type of joint. Simple, a bit run down, but comfortable enough. No booths - just tables and chairs. Not exceedingly loud but there was no band playing.

Quality: Very good lineup of craft beers and imports in bottles and a few things on tap as well. I could see liquor bottles behind the counter, but I didn't take a close look.

Service: It was not exceedingly busy the night I was there and so maybe they were short staffed, but things took a while to show up in both drink and food.

Selection: See my quality statement - plenty of imports (Sam Smith, Chimay, Unibroue among others) and plenty of US craft (Brooklyn, Great Lakes, Abita, Bells and some others I'm not remembering now) to choose from.

Food: Simple good bar food. Burgers were quite good. I didn't try the fried mac and cheese, but I've decided I will next time.

Very reasonable for the price.

I think next time I go I'll just give myself more time to hang out so that if food and service is slow, it won't matter.

Blind Bobs is a great place to hang out in the famous Oregon District in Dayton, Ohio.

They frequently have bands play, and any day of the week is a great chance to stop in and grab some tasty food and a delicious beer. You HAVE to try to fried mac & cheese, it's better than it sounds.

They have some great beers on tap and in bottles available. I've stopped in a few times and had some seasonal beers from Southern Tier, Great Lakes, and much more all on tap, as well as some GREAT bottled beers. They have all the beers you'd expect and much, much more. They also have a good collection of liquor.

This place is ridiculously relaxed - ask them to change the channel on one of their TVs and they will hand you the remote.

It's one of those places that is an absolute must-stop when walking down 5th Street in Dayton. Great food, great beer, and a super-solid atmosphere. It's where all the "cool kids" in Dayton hang out, yet it's nowhere near snooty or pretentious. A wonderful place to kick back and relax for lunch or dinner, as well as a great place to party with your friends.. Between the amazing food, beer, liquor, and casual atmosphere, Blind Bobs is pretty much guaranteed to make you leave happy.
