Terrible service but decent food

I take my elderly mother to this Bob Evans a few times a year, but we will be going to another Bob Evans in the future. The service here is very inconsistent and management seems overwhelmed by it all. The food is usually good, but gets overshadowed by the poor service.

So I recently put a review here about Bob Evans messing up out Thanksgiving Meal. A bit after it happened we had the Assistant Manager contact us as well as a Regional. They wanted to make it right since they messed up on Thanksgiving. They offered to cater us a full meal as well as come over and serve it... More

I was recently promoted to an Assistant Manager position at a local business and decided with my General Manager that we would get a Thanksgiving meal for our employees this year. We thought what would be more perfect than to buy our dinner from a local restaurant that we regularly refer our own guests too. Boy were we wrong. This... More

Bob Evans is in our “backyard” on Wilmington Pike, and we find a takeout dinner or a weeknight dinner to be at a reasonable price, and we like the menu variety. After having received the e-mail concerning the new three-course menu, we decided to visit Bob Evans. My wife likes a menu with pictures, and Bob Evans provides two menus... More

We like that Bob Evans (anywhere) provides breakfast all day. The turkey dinners are served perfect. We like the take-away service, and a simple phone call means a five minute stop and go. Perhaps, on - two times a year a carry out biscuits and gravy is a treat. The bakery section always has something that attract my wife's attention.

At Bob Evans you get some of the best home cooked available in any restaurant and the value is excellent. They have a senior menu that provides smaller portions at a reduced rate. Their biscuits and gravy and the turkey dinners are excellent. Well trained staff and clean venues.

Went here on a lunch break because even breakfast sounded good at noon. They have a $6 menu that is good for the value. Good French toast & love the sausage here. Was a bit surprised at the service. Saw a waitress interacting & enjoying what she was doing. But she was it. Never got a refill on my water... More
