Yummy food, downhome feel and excellent service. We went here for dinner and plan to come back for breakfast. My husband had the roast turkey dinner and I had the chopped steak. Mine was just delicious, with excellent gravy, grilled onions and grilled mushrooms. Our waitress was very young but did a great job. This is one of the best... More

Stopped for breakfast with my brother and sister-in-law who are regulars here. For starters, excellent service! Then had the usual breakfast fare plus a bowl of cheesy grits. What could be better? Yummmm!

I waited to be seated at a tiny booth, the kind that just fit you and another person or you and your purse. Table right by the door, stuffed with propaganda, no room for food. I had to listen to the server greet every guest with how busy they are. One guy asked, "well, are you seating people, are you... More

went for the 3 course turkey meal. Lots of food, soup or salad, turkey with dressing, mashed potatoes, great cranberry sauce, bread and dessert. Had to take the dessert home. Just love the cranberry sauce

A very short walk from the Red Roof Inn, open early on Sunday and the typical good breakfast you would expect from a Bob Evans.
