This may be asking too much, but are there any good search engines that ignore the disallow command in robots.txt?

I want to search the contents of a public website that has excluded part of its content with disallow in the robots file. Their internal site-search is appalling, so I'm hoping that there is a half-decent - yet non-spammy - search engine that will allow me to find some content on the site.
