Bob's History

When Bob Armstrong opened his diner in December of 1935 on North Main Street in Bainbridge, the tiny metal building was open 24 hours to serve customers round the clock, and Mrs Curtiss, his mother, did all the cooking! The landmark diner was known for its green trim and huge flower boxes. Within weeks of opening, Bob expanded the kitchen to accommodate his unexpected volume of customers. The diner continued to operate continuously, with various expansions, until 1994 when John Payne purchased it and completely remodeled it to its present look.  Read More.
