Bob Evans food is generally good at a reasonable price. This location fits the bill perfectly, although exiting the parking lot is more than a bit of an adventure.

We recently moved here and tried this Bob Evans and found it to be very badly managed. Will not go back.

This restaurant is clean, bright, modern & cheery. The breakfast menu had so many choices it was hard to choose. We ended up sharing some breakfast items to try out the menu. The wait was over 30 minutes but our waitress Melissa was wonderful and she even took 20% off our ticket due to our wait, but it was worth... More

We like to stop at this location as it is not out of the way to Smith Mountain Lake. Clean with good service. I had the 1/2 turkey bacon melt sandwich and Broccoli and Cheese soup and lemonade. My husband had turkey, dressing, green beans, and cranberry sauce and tea. Choice of breads like banana or blueberry. They sell loaves... More

We haven't been to a bob Evans for ages so we decided to go again. There were only two other tables full while we were there and three different waiting staff but it still took our waiter 10 mins to come over for our drink order and it was 100 degrees outside so we were really thirsty. It took 40... More

I can't believe more people don't dine at Bob Evans in Lynchburg (small crowd every time we go). Great food, easy to get to from HIghway 29/Wards Road, close to many hotels and attractions, great service, a little pricey, but you get what you have for (good quality food). All the staff is great, but our favorite waitress is Kanisha... More

It was Liberty U's graduation weekend, and we wanted to celebrate after the ceremony. Golden Corral's parking lot was packed so we went next door to Bob Evans because the lot was not full. (That was our warning, but we ignored it.) The restaurant was clean, the atmosphere was friendly. Our server was nice and cheerful, but I honestly don't... More

Nice breakfast at BE Lynchburg. Menu and quality standard for this chain but this time the service made it extra good. Stephanie B was friendly, professional and timely. Of course the biscuits and sausage gravy were very good.

I have grown up in the north and have loved Bob Evans for some time as well as visited the original farm. As well, I normally do not review chain restaurants. However, this particular Bob Evans has gone down hill since it was built. I stayed away for sometime because I knew it was not doing well, but recently decided... More

We went here to grab a quick bite to eat which turned into a long bite to eat. It took an hour to get our food and when we did get our food I was only brought half of mine and it took another 20 minutes to get the other half. To add insult to injury my french toast was... More
