Local families own Bobber Down Bar & Grille, a community eatery that boasts a menu of juicy burgers, eclectic beers, and seasoned fish, all of which contain no trans fat or nitrites. Appetizers of crispy nachos rest under an edible blanket of cheese, black olives, shredded lettuce, and jalapeños ($6.99). Dig into homemade potato chips paired with half-pound burgers, such as the Black and Blue with blue cheese and cracked black pepper ($7.99) or the Bobber Down burger with garlic mayo ($5.59), to prove your love for hamburgers in a way that naming your first child "Hamburger" never could. A spinach-chicken salad sates appetites healthfully with bits of pecan and honey-dijon-encrusted chicken ($9.50), and seafood entrees, such as the salmon picante, topped with fresh tomatoes and artichoke hearts, ramp up protein intake ($11.99). Patrons can send frosty sips of the beer-of-the month down throat luges, or celebrate a job promotion or third-place Jeopardy win with a bucket of four domestic brewskis ($8).

The mood is cheerful at Bobber Down Bar & Grille, where waitresses address guests as "hun" and regulars clink glasses of frosty drafts at the bar. One wall is speckled with photographs of past patrons proudly holding up a freshly caught fish or a roommate they've convinced to pose as a freshly caught fish. As flat-screen televisions glimmer with sports games and a jukebox plays familiar tunes, bartenders dart nimbly behind the bar, uncapping bottles and whipping up martinis. Meanwhile, in the kitchen, chefs use fresh ingredients to prepare burgers, steaks, and pub classics lauded by reporters from the Ann Arbor News.
