Bobber Down Bar & Grille
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.
