“Use to be better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

The last three trips to Bob Evans were disappointing. One time they were fixing a floor tile while we were eating lunch. The noise was distracting, we could not have a conversation and it made for an unpleasant meal. We mentioned it to both our waitress and management but they were not very interested in our dining experience.
The last time we met a friend for lunch, we stood waiting to be seated for 5 minutes, they were not very busy. The assistant manager came over, stood in front of us straightening menus. Finally we asked if we could be seated. She was not very friendly. Service was terrible, the food was skimpy. We had to request silverware, butter for the rolls, sugar, a straw, and during the meal the drinks were not refilled. There was a waitress standing behind the counter making "meow" sounds (very strange). The worse part was all 3 of us did not feel well later that day or the next, since that was the only meal any of us ate at a restaurant that day we were pretty sure it was the reason.
We enjoyed many breakfasts at Bob Evans since they opened as well as lunch and dinner. The food quality and service has slowly deteriorated.

“Better than I thought”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2012

For basic fair, Bob Evans was good...and has many more healthy options compared to Cracker Barrel. We ate here for convenience because it was closest to our hotel. Our server was friendly, our food came quickly, and the food was hot. This is my second time in a Bob Evans for dinner, and my second positive experience. Sure, it isn't gourmet, but it is good standard fare that is easy to handle on a been in the car too long stomach.

“Lover the Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2005

I would recommend any traveling or local person to eat at Bob Evans Restaurant. I have visited Bob Evans on numerous occasions and was very pleased with the service and food. I can say I never had a bad meal. The food is always hot and the people working at Bob Evans are courteous and go out of the way to meet your food needs. It is just about the best family restaurant in Lake City and convenient to I-75 north or south. I can't say enough about the food and service. When my parents visit from Atlanta, to Lake City, they always want eat at Bob Evans. Thanks. Joyce
