Fit on the Farm selections could be extended. Pretty much fish or eggs. Waiter Chris was great. Hostess and cashier also very nice and helpful. Take home containers could be a little sturdier because the tab on ours broke on ride home. Luckily it didn't spill in car. Value menu is the same as senior menu. Many good selections on... More

Of all the Bob Evans restaurants in this chain, the Elyria store has to be at the bottom of the list. Seems that they can't do anything good but breakfast items, and they are slacking on this now!

OK, so this isn't the greatest restaurant ever, but the menu was large, the staff were very friendly, and they accommodated four adults and five children very well. The service was a bit slow, but overall it was a good experience.

I visit a Bob Evans if I'm traveling and one is nearby. My fav is the wildfire chicken salad. The management at this place is extra friendly and eager to please. Give them a try

We had very good food here and the service was excellent. However, there were finger prints and smears on all windows and even food spots on some of the walls near us.

I have never gotten a bad meal here. Some times the kitchen is a bit slow in getting the food out but it's always worth the wait. I'd recommend stopping here when in town.

It has been six years since I have been to one of these and I think I can wait another six. Yes, the decor is brighter and the wait staff quite good. However, the mac and cheese was saltier than the Atlantic and the unwarmed broccoli left on my plate. The food did not inspire my appetite. The blueberry bread... More

The local Bob Evans is very consistent in the food quality and has a very large and reasonably priced menu. The service is quick and the interior is kept up and is clean. The wife and I eat weekly at the Elyria unit.

Food was the same as at other B.E. restaurants, but for our first night there after a long day of travel, it was fine.

Asked twice for water. Ate half our lunch still no drinks. Dry sandwiches, no offer of mayo, mustard, etc. Boasts bottomless coffee, got 1 cup, no offer of refill. Waitress never even brought the check. Had to ask the manager for it. 40$ for bad service when the place wasn't even busy. Disappointing.

Thank Monica S
