Great Breakfast

Good service. Their pancakes, with their many toppings are the best. The egg dishes are very good. Always served hot. Plenty of hot coffee. Ask for Dee's section.

I took my family to breakfast on Sunday morning to Bob Evans. While we didn't have to wait there were lots of people waiting a few minutes later. The waiter was very nice and knew the menu. It took awhile for the food to arrive but when it came out it was really good. My wife had the blueberry French... More

Needing a place to stop for lunch between New Jersey and North Carolina, the Bob Evans location in Columbia Maryland worked great. It is located not far from I 95 at the Columbia/Jessup exit. We chose Bob Evans as our destination as it was a favorite of my father's years ago when we took family trips and I have never... More

Our food was very good homecooking kind of food with my favorite turkey and dressing. The service was very slow but friendly. The food took a long time to come out of the kitchen - we even heard a neighboring table ask if they had been forgotten. Our bread was forgotten and our drink refills and the sweeping under the...

I eat here often, but they ALWAYS forget the bread, and often get your order wrong. Today I ordered chicken and noodles and got a salad somehow by mistake. Hopefully they get their act together.

Went twice for breakfast this past weekend. Both times our wait staff was quick to get us our orders, accurately. Pleasant staff all the way around. Portions of good size too.

went for breakfast, it was packed but the service was great, and the food was good. The restaurant was right across the street from our hotel so we were able to walk there.

I know it's a chain and from location to location is inconsistent. However, this location is nearly always spot on for for a home cooked style breakfast, lunch or dinner! We're fairly regular for a weekend breakfast. Food is good, value is excellent and the service is usually good. There are a few servers who aren't great but they are... More

My brother and I stopped here at 9:30pm on a Saturday night. They were closing at 10pm and we felt rushed. The food was ok and the service was fair. They need to hire a busboy because there were several tables near us that needed to be cleaned.
