Went to lunch with family and our waitress Alana provided substandard service. My father who is elderly spilled his tea and she brought over three napkins for us to clean up the spill. We then ordered our food and advised her of my allergy to ham do not add it to my omelette, and my sister ordered her steak medium... More

It was New Year's Eve late morning and I just exsaped the nearby hospital after a procedure that required me to fast for over 24 hours. Bob Evans was calling as I craved a real breakfast. I ordered the two eggs, sausage links, home fries and two pancakes special. It arrived in a flash hot and delicious. The entire experience... More

This is a nice Bob Evans but we had an initial issue when requesting to be seated. The hostess told us it would be a 10 minute wait for a table. She then seated several other groups who came in right after our group. No one else was waiting to be seated. When we asked to speak with a manager,... More

We were in need of a late lunch and this restaurant was conveniently located. I had never been to a Bob Evans and was pleased to see the menu had options that were not heavy on carbs or fat. The food was tasty. The banana bread option to rolls was much appreciated. I will say that although service was good... More

Loved the choices and the family style servings. Great location adjacent to the Holiday Inn. Great alternative for time 'in'

Of course we have heard of Bob Evans, even though we are from Canada. So, I was excited to try the food. The coffee was not good. My husband's meal came before mine. So, mine was cool...not cold. And, it was just okay. The best part of the meal was the orange juice! Huh...just saying.

The quality of the food is consistent with Bob Evans, it is a trusted name, and I know what to expect. However, at this particular location - the service was painfully slow. It took almost 1:45 from start to finish, when my order wasn't something that needed to be cooked to order, there is no reason for an order of... More

I expected burgers, meatloaf, turkey, etc., but while they do have those offerings, they also had an excellent grilled salmon fillet. It comes w/freshly steamed broccoli and a baked potato, but I substituted a dinner salad for the potato for only 50 cents more. The salad was a nice, crisp lettuce blend w/cherry tomatoes, carrots, cucumber, and shredded cheese. the... More
