The food and service at this place have improved greatly over the past year, at least for breakfast.

My husband I stopped for an early dinner while out shopping. We eat here occasionally. I had the soup sandwich combo and he always orders the potato crusted flounder, which is his favorite. Service has always been good at this location.

This was our first and last visit to Bob Evans o Allen Rd. Probably will return, but it will be awhile. Our server was prompt and took our order, delivering our beverages correctly and promptly, but then a long time passed before she returned. The promo menu included an appetizer choice, a list of a variety of entree's, and a... More

Ten of us went to Bob Evans yesterday. We had a wonderful meal and great service. We all ordered different food but, suffice it to say, everybody's food was hot and tasty. Zane was our waiter and he was great. I'll be back.

Only one other customer when we went in at 7 am. Waitress was busy but made sure some one seated us promptly. Food was ok. Only issue was I needed to use wifi while there but their guest wifi did not work.

I was pleasantly surprised by the food and service. I had a sunshine scramble and it was very good. Plus the pancakes were excellent. The waiter kept the drinks filled and was quick with any request I had.

My wife, our son-in-law and I went for breakfast this A.M. This was the FIRST time we've been let down at this restaurant over many visits. First of all - - we waited over a half hour for our orders - - and they weren't busy enough to warrant this length of wait. Had to ask the waitress to check... More

This was our first and last visit to Bob Evans in Peoria, IL. We were greeted and seated promptly. From there things went downhill quickly. The waitress stopped by for our drink order then kind of disappeared. When she did return she didn't have my son's smoothie but promised it would be up shortly. She did think ahead to bring... More

This was a very mixed and time-consuming experience. In the end, most food was high quality, but getting to that point took far too much time and was surrounded by evident organizational problems at the restaurant. On arrival, the check in process was time-consuming with a several minute wait with no acknowledgment of our presence. When the manager came to... More

This was by far the worst food/service that I have ever received at a Bob Evans ever before. Everyone from the hostess to the waitress was just plain rude. The food was either overcooked or undercooked to the point where none of us really ate. (We ended up finding a fast food joint after leaving this restaurant even). I didn't... More
