Bob’s Steak & Chop House

Bob’s Steak and Chop House is located at the Shoppes of Omni Amelia Island Plantation in the same space, where PLAE was for many years. It originated in Texas and definitely contains Texas-sized portions. Many other Omni’s are incorporating Bob’s at their properties. The inside décor is more open and brighter than PLAE, but the bar is still in the same location.

Greeted by a huge Angus Bull (portrait) to set the stage for Bob’s motto, “Prime Steak and Stiff Drinks.” Appetizers were impressive, the calamari was sweet and crisp, the chilled and fried shrimp were huge and tasty, and the bruschetta was excellent. A large loaf of country bread was excellent and accompanied a large jar of peppers and pickles, a standard at all Bob’s restaurants. Full bar and the dining room is mostly private. Open for dinner nightly from 4:30pm except Sunday.
