Tender Bob’s has been around for a long time but it’s one of those restaurants I’ve never tried even once.Tender Bob’s serves uncomplicated American cuisine that people young and old can find easy to enjoy. I’ve been to their sister restaurants, Kettle and Fireside multiple times so it high time to visit them. The perfect opportunity popped up when they updated the look and and added new items to the menu.
We started with the Potato Skins (P289). This dish is simply evil, thinly sliced, fried right, you’ll be popping one after the other. Eat it as is or with a choice of either cheese or garlic dip. For Lauren, Tender Bob’s equals Potato Skins and she orders this every time she can.
Irene and I shared the Shrimp Bisque (P179). A creamy, umami filled flavor punch packed with strong shrimp taste. A bit of brandy and fresh cream rounds out the hearty soup.
Lauren picked the Country Fried Chicken (P339) as her main dish. Cajun breaded chicken fillet with home style gravy and sides of mashed potatoes, corn and veggies. She found the cajun seasoning too spicy for her delicate tastes so she ordered another item. I tried some of it and the seasoning is just right for me paired with the gravy.
Lauren went with her tried and true Mac and Cheese (P239). She promptly finished off her order and then got the menu and looked at what she wanted for dessert.
Irene’s pick was the Seas Burger (P299). A fish patty burger topped with pickles and a generous amount of coleslaw plus a side of potato hay. I suggest removing some of the slaw or request them to serve it on the side and just add according to your preference. This is one hefty sandwich and feels like a fillet o’ fish on steroids.
I got the US Angus Pot Roast (P489). A homey plate of oven roasted brisket topped with gravy and Cajun onion strips with a side of mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables. The brisket is very tender and you might want to replace mashed potatoes with rice to sop up all the flavorful sauce. Not a dish we’ve ever cooked at home so I like ordering it when I find it.
We tried two of their desserts, the Sizzling Bread and Butter Pudding (P279) and the Chocolate Fudge Sundae (P209). The bread and butter pudding is a fun little dessert, you’ll hear and see the sizzle as they pour the caramel. The other plate had a big piece of brownie fudge topped with vanilla ice cream, and whipped cream then drizzled with chocolate syrup. Lauren loved the fudge sundae and lists this and potato skins as her must orders if she is not too full for dessert.
We got to taste two of their Shake and Bake milkshakes, Banana Cream Pie (P199) and Tiramisu (P159). The milkshakes were from a previous restaurant that has since shuttered but they were too good to be relegated to the ether. I love banana cream pie and the milkshake tastes exactly the same, just in drink form.
