“Good Food & Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

Let me start off by saying it had been a long time since we ate at Bob Evans. It will not be so long till the next time. Unless this place is an exception, Bob Evans has come a long way. This place was spotless, nice and bright, diverse menu with something for everyone, terrific service, good food with ample quantity, good coffee. You name it this place had everything. I had the meatloaf dinner and my wife had Chicken Pot Pie. We could not believe the bill when it came, it was dirt cheap here. We paid a lot more on vacation and were not as satisfied as with this place.

“Excellent - best Bob Evans experience recently”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

We were shown to our table quickly and our order was taken shortly after.

Food arrived fast - which was surprising when the place was very busy. The cooks seem to be challenging themselves to get orders out quickly (overheard one asking how quickly he did a large order - 11 minutes !)

Food quality was excellent - cooked to perfection and hot. Couldnt ask for more from a chain type restaurant.

Only slight downside - server was rather surly and unattentive. How difficult is it to give excellent service.

“Hung over!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

Terrible service by Bianca , I usually just comment on a restaurant as a whole but my food was cold, server was slow. She saw we had empty drinks and didn't even ask to refill and when we did ask it took forever to have drink with our food. Personality if you has a bad day leave it at home don't take it out on my family. She knew the menu but did not know how to take care of us as a server should. I won't be coming back because of the terrible service. The girls all looked like zombies and miserable. Not am enjoyable atmosphere

“breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

We drove all night from Delaware and arrived in Venice, FL. in the early morning. Breakfast was top on the list and Bob Evans is the place. With 4 adults and 3 kids, the menu has a great selection to fit all needs. The food is good honest home style meals, with nice presentation, taste great and the waitress did a good job handling 7 requests. If you go away hungry, shame on you. The restaurant and the bathrooms were clean, the inside and outside were clean and looked nice. You have a hard time beating a Bob Evans meal.

“Lovely experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

As frequent visitors to Florida from England, We were surprised that tonight was our first experience of a Bob Evans restaurant. I am pleased to say that we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will definitely be returning. Service was excellent, the food was well cooked and delicious and I can honestly say it was the best value for money meal that we have eaten in over 10 years of visiting the area.
Well done Bob Evans, you deserve a huge pat on the back, this is the fist revue I have ever done but felt you and your employees deserved it, thank you.
