The store is newly redesigned and clean. We waited a long time once seated for drinks and for our order. There was A LOT of commotion from the kitchen and server area. But I don't believe it was work related. The table next to us were talking about the wait for a server to come to their table so I guess we were warned. We ordered the soup, salad, and sandwich special. Drinks were slow to the table, salad arrived quickly. After sitting for twenty minutes without a server coming to the table, she let us know the soup we ordered was not available. The couple across from us wanted bread and they were told it was not available. The manager never talked to us. The server told us the manager bought our salads. We went down the street to the competition and got the soup and salad.

My family and I love this restaurant, food is consistent and cheap, this one was just as good and the service was great.

My husband and I visit about twice a month on Sundays before Rays baseball games. On this particular Sunday we stopped in for breakfast and had horrible service! We placed our order with our server Chrissy and started chatting amongst ourselves waiting on our food. After about 20 minutes we noticed that the tables next to us had received food, but they had seated after us. So we continue to wait and as we see the table finish their food and request a check I stood up to find the manager. When I had asked the manager if he could check on our food he said yes and he would be right with us to let us know. We waited another 10 minutes, meanwhile we see our server out the window walking to the XXX bookstore next door. The manager Jason never returned to our table to let us know the status of our food. My husband started getting aggravated as well by this point. We had no more time to wait since we had a baseball game to get to. As we walked out 45 mins later with no food on our table...we hardly got acknowledged by the manager let alone an apology. We will never return to this Bob Evans again!!!!!!!

We always go to Bobs for a meal each time we visit. Normally the service is quick. This time the staff were too interested in chatting and not serving the customers. Eventually we got our food which was hot and great too eat. Basic but wholesome. A little bit thought how to put food on plate would help. We all eat with our eyes. We went for the food which was good, it was hot, it was tasty, but the long wait is what we remember.

We look forward to going to Bob's every time we visit St. Petersburg. The breakfast is awesome and the service always friendly and efficient. This past time I had the oatmeal (real thick and yummy - served with cinnamon-sugar and milk if you want) and a side of banana bread (simply wonderful - a must buy!). One companion had eggs over easy on toast, sausage links and hashbrowns, while the other had scrambled eggs, bacon and pancakes. All was yummy. I'm not sure if it is, but their orange juice tastes fresh squeezed. We were a large group of 17, yet the service was excellent - the manager even pitched in to help cook so that we would all be served quickly. To me, that's the sign of a great "boss". Understand - this is not "gourmet" food, but it's awesome "American feel good" food! Eat up!
