Homemade chips and dip were on point! The Reuben was recommended by a friend and it was the best I've ever had. The chili was really good too. Keep up the good work folks in the kitchen! Only real downside was the atmosphere left me a little wanting. Check it out if you're into good food and decent drinks for... More

Italian burger was fantastic. My husband got the frisco burger and it was really good. Juicy and full of flavor. Perfectly balanced so you don't need to add any sauces. The homemade chips were a bonus. A must if you're in Dayton!

We missed the karaoke by a day, but were there about 8:30 pm on Thursday and my hard ciders were $3 each. There were three choices.

Stopped for ONE drink - (good beer selection), but ended up drinking another AND bartender and I did 3 whiskey shots throughout the early evening to commemorate the 1 year 'anniversary' of Scott Weiland's death (Stone Temple Pilots). I've been here before for a punk show (local band - The Give Ups), so I know it's a great music venue.... More

Lunch was disappointing for both of us. The fried mushroom appetizer consisted of thick fried portobello mushroom slices which were cold and wet on the inside, although fried on the outside. Falafel wraps were mushy. It seemed as if the falafel balls had been mashed, and sauce, vegetables, and seasoning were inadequate. Fries were OK. The only positive was that... More

Blind Bob's is a lively bar and live music venue. We got a very warm welcome and were made to feel just like locals. The food is good and service is fast and friendly.

We were in town to watch a band play at this venue. We stayed in an awesome lil B&B around the corner. We went here during the day and had a few appetizers and drinks. It was good food. We went again that night, and had more food and drinks. The bartenders were all men and they were very friendly... More
