“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Though we consumed late lunch and the restaurant was 1/2 empty, the service was so slow that we contemplated on taking our business else where. Food, when delivered left more on serving plates than permissible. Ordered rare steak - received a well done portion...

“My very first Bob Evans...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

I was driving through West Virginia on a road trip, and we were hungry, so stopped here for a late lunch.

I see Bob Evans everywhere and drove by the exit for their farm, so I wanted to try it.

It is nice inside, but there was a lot of flaws.

We were quickly seated and our drink orders were taken, then awhile later, our food order was taken.

My girl friend got the 6.99 soup and salad special and she was served way before my friend and I.

She was supposed to get a plate of salad, but instead got a huge bowl of lettuce.

I got the 9.99 three course meal, and chose soup (same as her but came ten minutes later.....) and sirloin with mushrooms and mashed potatoes. Also included was bread, and I asked for biscuits.
We only got regular rolls, she asked for a different kind too, but we never got them...

So what I got was the sirloin and fries?? So no biscuits and fries instead of my mashed..

My friend got a burger and it was fine...

When we got the bill... I was charged an extra dollar for the soup for some reason, and he never asked what I wanted for dessert, and had given us the bill. He disappeared for awhile and when he finally returned, we asked about the bill, he spent 10 minutes trying to fix it, and I got the same exact bill again, frustrated and eagerly wanting to leave, we paid the overpriced amount, after wasting over 20 minutes trying to leave...

Of course the manager asked how everything was when only my g/f had received food, but he was no where to be found during the billing fiasco. At least the caramel sundae was good. The food in general was pretty good, but the service was terrible.

I would try Bob Evans again, but definitely a different location.

“Nice service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Loved the fried eggs with just tiny bit of oil. As I said I am dieting.
Salad was good. All in all a good experience.

“Best chain food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We have had breakfast here many times. The service is excellent, and the food is truly down home cooking. They have even modernized the menu with a turkey sausage, my favorite. You can always count on a good meal at Bob Evans

“Surprisingly bad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

I absolutely love Bob Evans and was so very disappointed with this one.

We ordered our meals (both breakfasts) and the server brought our food and I looked at the biscuits she brought with my meal. I could tap on them with my fingernail and get a "bonk" noise. Then I picked one up and knocked it on the table and it didn't even crumble. It was that hard.

She asked us one time if we wanted anything else, then the next time she came to the table, she left the checks and we never saw here again for drink refills or anything else. She actually never even offered us a drink refill.

When I went to the register, I told the boy there that I had a gift card that I was unsure of how much was left on it, but if he would just run $20 on it, I'd settle the rest with cash. Apparently, he interpreted this as me having asked him to perform long division because he became flustered and was going to have to ask for help when I told him to forget it and just use my debit card for the entire ticket.

What a disappointing visit.
