Good comfort food as usual, but service needs a lift.

Bob Evans restaurants are our 'go to restaurant' for good old fashion comfort food while we are traveling. We like the freshness of their salads, their soups, and, this day, we had the most delicious pot roast and chicken fried steak. They have great rolls, biscuits or nut breads and the desserts... read more

Bob Evans has never been a disappointing location for dinner until tonight. Service was incredibly slow in a restaurant that wasn't busy. It took 30 minutes to get our dinners and when the dishes were delivered it was obvious that most of the food came from a can. The meatloaf was terrible, the beans tasted like a tin can. The...

They burned the bacon and somehow still thought it was acceptable to serve. The drinks were warm not cold like they should have been. For the quality of food it was way overpriced.

We came here for breakfast and the food was excellent. The restaurant was updated and very clean, and the service was outstanding. The homemade biscuits are to die for. A definite place to go while in town!!

My wife and I ate here on 3/12/14. The restaurant had a nice makeover inside. It was nice before but it is really nice now. My wife and I usually get breakfast, and it was super, as always. The people who work there always have a smile on their face. Our sever was "Melissa" and she is really good at... More

Me and my family visited this Bob Evans Restaurant over the weekend. I had called ahead to talk to the manager because we deal with a potentially deadly food allergy. He was very helpful. Upon arrival I was assisted by the Assistant Manager when asked for the Manager. He was not knowledgeable about food allergies, hesitated when asked for ideas... More

Sticky table the waitress said was "...due to the varnish wearing off." However, after she took a half effort to clean it off I wet some napkins and was able to the get dried syrup (I hope?) off enough that my arm hairs didn't get waxed. Glasses dirty, silver ware dirty, and when the sandwiches came the orders were all... More

The amount of fat and butter will sit with you all night. I had no car and walked from the nearby hotel to have dinner twice here, because it was the only option that wasn't fast food or a buffet place. First night it was kind of scary with the guy from the kitchen who kept coming out to the... More

Bob Evans chain used to be our favorite. This location is clean and very well kept, but the food was a bit overpriced for the serving sizes. The blueberry crepes had to go back since they were rubbery and smothered in a two sweet blueberry sauce. We found that the Cracker Barrel just down the road was a much better... More
