My family and I stopped here for dinner just before the Thanksgiving / Black Friday weekend. While the menu has changed substantially from what I remember, we were disappointed with much of the food. My fried steak came with overcooked and limp green beans. The mashed potatoes were dry and tasteless. My wife's grilled salmon was good, but the steam... More

A trip to Watertown isn't complete without a stop at Bob Evans. My hubby loves their chicken pot pie and I always manage to find something I like on the menu. This visit was no different than any other visit. The chicken pot pie is always consistent and my hubby loves that. For a change, I had chocolate chip pancakes... More

Had breakfast here with a friend during a cross-border shopping trip. I had the Pot Roast Hash (Slow-roasted beef layered over home fries and topped with two eggs* cooked-to-order and scallions -without cheese). Served with my choice of bread (English muffin). My friend had The Rise and Shine, with biscuits swapped out for apple cinnamon hotcakes. Can't comment on the... More

Well things don't seem to get better here. Went around 11:30 am after breakfast and before lunch rush. Was not busy and we waited to be seated as 6 employees were yapping and really did not make an effort to do their job to seat us. The food was OK but I almost finished my food before I got the...

Finally after many trips to Watertown, we finally decided to give Bob Evans a try,which proved to be a good decision. Did not have to wait long for a seat even though we arrived around noon. Staff was very pleasant and our waitress was exceptionally friendly and helpful as it was our first time there. Menu has something for everyone... More

Liked the three course meal: soup, main and dessert. Turkey and pot roast meals good, tasty, beef veggie soups was good except: to many green beans. Dessert was good. Server was friendly and timely. Good price for the meal.

Yummy sausage gravy and biscuits. My son also loved their chocolate chip pancakes. Great service and fair prices. Bought some cookies for our trip home to Long Island and they were delicious. Would definitely return.

At the time I am writing this review, I've written over 280 reviews for TripAdvisor, and only four of them earned the rating of poor. This is one of those four. We've eaten at Bob Evans restaurants in other places and our expectations were for a clean, simple restaurant with basic meals at affordable prices. This Bob Evans fumbled the... More

The service at the start seems to be a bit confused, but once the new shift waitress got on the job everything when well indeed. Warm homemade rolls and scones ( endless ) reminded me of ones of days gone by when you grandmother would make them on those special occasions like Thanksgiving, then there was the plate full of...

This restaurant is located close to I 81, and the Salmon Run Mall. It was very busy which makes sense because the amount of food and quality of same is very good.
