Bob Evans has always been good, and they still are. But the past few visits haven't been the best. They have taken many of their good sides away. For example, corn, applesauce, smileys fries, etc. They are still a good restaurant, they just need to bring back some food items.

Good place for breakfast but get there early to over the crowds. There are a few counter stools at the counter that we grabbed in order to avoid the wait. Amazing to see the staff worked so quickly and efficiently without dropping anyone's order. Food was served hot and was good...not over the top...but good way to start the day.

We arrived hungry and were promptly seated. Our waitress was attentive and took very good care of us. We had a toddler with us, but our food ca,e quickly so there was no problem.

We walked in and we were shown a table. We sat down and waited awhile to get menus. But when I asked a server about ordering. She took over. We ordered .and received our food and beverages ..promptly. She was very attentive to our table. She kept our beverage cups filled and bread dish filled. That was the best service... More

Dinner for 3....Server gave menus..took order. Got our beverages and waited forever for our meal. It was warm when got it.but we ate it any way. We had to constantly ask for more water...and coffee. Napkins were scarce..it seemed. Servers seem like they love to talk behind the counter and lack of interest in customers. Tip was minimum

My family visited here on our way to Ohio to visit family. It was outdated. It was clean but so outdated that it still looked dirty. Waitress was good. Food was OK. I would probably not waste time stopping here. Just very outdated

The host was great, greeted us cheerfully and kindly. We had been on the road for 7 hours on our way home from a family funeral. Not a SINGLE employee could be bothered to take our drink order. They sure had time to vacuum, sweep, and ignore us. A gal screamed to the others "hanging around" who's in charge of... More

There was a time when Bob Evans was a great place to eat. I have noticed the last two times I have been there (once for breakfast and once for lunch), the food wasn't as good as it used to be. The broasted chicken tenders look so good on the menu and on TV, however, they are not as good... More

Seated right away but 15 minutes passed before we were seen by a waitress. Many other servers just walked by and ignored our family. Server did not check up on us until meal was over. Did not get what I ordered. Restaurant was not busy. No excuses.
