DESCRIPTION

In the last three decades, Bobby Moore has racked up more successes than most people experience in an entire lifetime. Whether he’s racing offshore power boats, training and performing with his elephants or promoting his newest restaurant, Bobby Moore truly exemplifies the modern self-made entrepreneur.

In 1970, Bobby opened his first eatery at the age 20 on the Eastside of Detroit and converted it into the Keg-A-Brew Saloon which quickly became the most popular bar and grill in that part of the city. As Bobby’s success grew, so did his indulgences. He fell in love with a new “high speed” hobby: offshore powerboat racing.

He soon became one of the area’s most successful racers. Ahead of his time, in 1975 Bobby had a new vision for a themed restaurant driven by his love for racing, The Shipping Channel Restaurant and Marina gave Bobby the opportunity to experiment with the idea of incorporating full-size racing craft (in this instance, offshore racing boats) into the interior design of a fine dining seafood restaurant. This restaurant and marina grew from 110 seats with 10 boat wells to 400 seats and 50 boat wells. In 1981, Bobby purchased a failing local landmark restaurant and converted it to Bobby Moore’s BlindFish Seafood and Steakhouse. It quickly became one of the area’s top fine dining restaurants for over 16 years.

Bobby served a six pound cut of prime rib and called it “The Elephant Cut”. Guests that were able to eat the whole piece of prime rib and everything on the plate only had to pay ninety-nine cents and Bobby would bring one of his elephants to the restaurant for the hefty eater and his friends to ride. A successful restaurateur and accomplished racer, Bobby then decided to pursue his childhood dream of owning, training and performing with elephants. He bought his first pachyderm in 1982. With the help of the world’s greatest elephant trainer, Robert “Smoky” Jones, he learned everything he could about elephants. By 1989, Bobby’s herd had grown to 13 prize elephants and were regarded as one of the top elephant acts in the world. Before selling his elephants in 1992, Bobby and his “team” were hired to perform with the Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus on its first tour in Japan.
