Good food if served when hot.

We stopped at this restaurant for breakfast today and were somewhat disappointed with the service. We were seated promptly, provided with drinks, and our order was taken.

I have grown up in the north and have loved Bob Evans for some time as well as visited the original farm. As well, I normally do not review chain restaurants. However, this particular Bob Evans has gone down hill since it was built. I stayed away for sometime because I knew it was not doing well, but recently decided... More

We went here to grab a quick bite to eat which turned into a long bite to eat. It took an hour to get our food and when we did get our food I was only brought half of mine and it took another 20 minutes to get the other half. To add insult to injury my french toast was... More

We decided to try Bob Evans for breakfast after receiving an E-Mail promotion. We were not disappointed and now have frequented Bob Evans numerous times ordering a variety of breakfast items. Service is fast and the servers are very attentive. If you like pancakes try the $4.99 pancakes which are more than a normal person can consume. The other breakfast... More

I was disappointed with the food and service the last time we visited. It was on a Sunday, but it seemed like the place was short staffed. While the waitress was nice, she did not come back to the table for refills, bring salt (which was missing on the table). The food was not that tasty. I had a veggie... More

Most Bob Evans restaurants are okay. This one, not so much. I stopped in one early weekday morning around 7 a.m. They were not at all busy. I placed my order with the pregnant waitress, she was cordial, but a ditz. I was served coffee, and I waited over half an hour for my order to be served. Their lack... More

Food was good and service was good as well. All employees need to be aware of the business hours. I called and was told 'i think we open at 6:30 or 7' ..when asked for a specific time she was telling me she didn't know and wasn't for sure..got a 'manager' on the phone who 'sorta' answered the question.

This little breakfast place offers friendly service. The price was right $6-8 for full breakfast. The food was only ok. Pancakes not good, raw, the eggs and hashbrowns were greasy. The bacon was thin. Coffee $2.15 each for a carafe. Overall - just okay. The reviews sound like it is inconsistent depending on who's working.

My wife and I came here on a Sunday afternoon around 3pm and decided we wanted to get some late breakfast. We slept in and knew there would be a church crowd so it was okay to wait. Once we arrived the place was kind of empty and we were seated and ordered quickly. Enjoyed our coffees and meals. The... More
