Sat here for 45 minutes this morning with no return of our waitress Nikki. Can't comment on the food because we left. Other tables were waiting as well and their servers at least brought their guests biscuits. All the waitresses were standing by the pick up station hollering back to the cook staff. Bright side... The ice from my empty... More

We eat here regularly. Breakfast is served hot and filling. Home style food choices and friendly servers make this a good pit stop.

Had a meet and greet here for breakfast, except for waitress being too anxious to serve us, and that is NOT A COMPLAINT, everything went really well for us. Asked for Brenda, she came out from the kitchen and said she would be honored to cook our food, she knows how I like my eggs -- scrambled well but not... More

Took my Dad to breakfast. We were seated right away. The restaurant was not overly busy, but our meal took a while. I ordered home fries but received hash browns instead. Switched out the potatoes and some of the home fries weren't completely done. It almost took an act of Congress to get refills on coffee. We weren't even asked... More

Put my name on the waiting list, party of 1. After 20 min another party of 1 was seated immediately. When I inquired as to why it was discovered that my name had been marked off the list even though it wasn't called. I went to IHop where I had a lovely breakfast.

The best chicken pot pie anywhere. I keep getting dry pot pies everywhere else, but Bob Evans knows how to make them right. Big chunks of veggies and meat with just the right amount of a wonderfully creamy gravy. They also do a really great fried cornmeal mush. Oh my! Comfort food!!!

We came for breakfast. We tried some breakfast potatoes that were dry but my husband doesn't believe in sending anything back. The waitress was very helpful in accommodating my dietary needs. I had a piece of chicken with my egg whites and grits. She patiently waited for us to finish chatting. She had to leave to go to a funeral.... More

No, I'm not kidding. I wish I was. I ordered the wildfire salmon and halfway through it was clearly visible that the entire fish was uncooked in the middle. I nearly lost everything that I had been eating. Sick. Disturbing. Disgusting. The servers were nice, but it was really one of the worst experiences a diner could have. Totally ruined... More
