Co-Owner of Palmer’s American Grille
Bob Gebbia is the co-owner and operator of Palmer’s American Grille in Farmingdale, a contemporary restaurant that’s revered by the local community, and a destination for out-of-town dinners with discerning taste.
Growing up in Floral Park, Bob started his career in the restaurant and hospitality business. His legendary smile and quick wit had always been welcomed by his customers at Fulton Street Pub where he became co-owner in 1992. During this time, Bob was instrumental in creating, opening and managing one of Long Island’s most popular clubs, The Crazy Donkey, which quickly became the hotspot on Long Island that all neighboring entertainment venues strived to become.
Shortly thereafter; Bob returned to focus on Fulton Street Pub and transformed into what’s known today as Palmer’s American Grille. Several years ago, Bob facilitated the opening of Palmer’s East in the Vineyards, located at Riverhead.
Spirited in nature, Bob has always prided himself in giving back to the community and raising money for charity. It’s his good-natured personality and humor that has helped him achieve whatever he goes after to support. He is a proud member of the local Cobra Car Club, an organization that has run countless charity events. Bob always looks to bring people together among different circles to create harmonious relationships. An avid golfer with a single-digit handicap, Bob takes to the course and the poker room to create friendships and make business happen.
Bob resides in Wading River and is married with a daughter who works at Mather Hospital.
