We stop here each time we are in town, it is always after a long day's drive and we do not want to take a chance on a bad meal. We can always depend on a good basic meal and very friendly staff. Great breads to start and very good turkey dinner.

Good atmosphere and decent food. The staff is supper friendly. The only negative for me is that it is a chain and some of the dishes long for personal touches that would make them better. Not everything tastes fresh. We also celebrated a birthday here and the staff went above expectations. They were also pretty good in dealing with a party of 20 that was seated next to us on Christmas Eve.

Instead of visiting Outback’s we decided to eat here.

They only had a handful of tables but we needed to wait 15 mins. Figured out why after we sat down, tables were not cleaned and limited staff.

Apparently they ran out of food and had a limited menu. The food that we did get was over-salted and inedible. Lets just say it was not a good experience.

Would not visit again

Bianca took our breakfast order with friendly and efficient demeanor. The kitchen mixed up some of the food but Bianca corrected it quickly. After eating a good portion, my husband discovered hair in his meal and he almost lost whatever he had already eaten. When alerting the manager directly, she waved the hair covered knife over the rest of our plates, finally removed the plate in question and then had no intention of replacing it. When Bianca returned, she asked if we were okay, offered to replace food and went over and above to make sure we were happy the rest of our time there. Kitchen still got replacement plate wrong again. Food tasted okay (but questionable), kitchen couldn’t get orders right and Bianca’ service was excellent. I’ll never step foot there again. In the end, we were not charged for husband’s food. Looks like waitstaff has to carry management. Kitchen has some unclean habits and disorganization. What Incompetence. Disturbing.

Not many opportunities to eat at Bob Evans, except when visiting Carolina Premium Outlets. My mother decided on trying Bob Evans. The entrance was clean, well-lite restaurant, and obviously clean tables with no visible trash during that visit. Waitress was pleasant and very attentive to all of the tables she was responsible for. We ordered breakfast food and hands down it was very tasty. Only issue was with the air vents that have seen better days. Because the restaurant was well taken care of, the dirty and possibly moldy vents stood out to me. Great selection of baked goods available for sale at the register area. Overall a great place, however the air vents need some attention.
