Very slow service, even though there were few diners. One problem was the server did not seem to know the menu very well. When the food finally arrived, the portion size was wrong, and some items missing. But the biggest mistake was the bill! Charged for bread, entre price was wrong, billed separately for side dish. Total mess. The cashier... More

Clean casual place. Food was good, altho I had to switch to a cola because they were out of lemonade, and had to switch to mashed potatoes rather than wait 5 (additiona)l minutes for a baked potato. We apparently were there at shift change because we had three different servers, and eventually had to ask for our check.

Although we often eat at Bob Evans on our travels, this was an especially nice visit. For this visit it was Veteran's Day and it was so nice to have both of our meals free because we are veterans. Their offerings were varied and well publicized and even posted on their marquee outside. Our waitress was attentive and cheerful as... More

Very disappointed visit. Waiting for server to come to table for about 10 minutes. Incorrect order. Was supposed to get dessert with meal. A cookie??? Was the option. What, not pie?. Food was not hot. When I went to pay, assistant manager asked how it was, I said I was disappointed. What did he do. Nothing, no apology, just left... More

We get carry out from Bob Evans about twice a month. Most times everything is OK. Nothing to write home about. Tonight was different though. My wife picked up the order. Everything was ready when she got there. I ordered beef pot roast. Wife ordered country fried steak. Both meals were excellent. Probably the best I have had from this... More

We have noticed that the staff appears to be in discord during recent visits. The wait staff changes frequently. My husband likes the pot pies but I'm not sure if they are cooked properly because we almost always have stomach issues after eating there.

Chain sit down restaurant, good parking, and ole country style menu items. The service was very slow and I had to go find a manager 3 times to get drink refills and incorrect food items corrected as my server was no where to be found, guess they take long smoke breaks in this location. The food did taste good and... More

We stopped at Bob Evans in Shelbyville while returning from a agriculture event in Indiana. We had not been to Bob Evans in years, but heard others praise it highly. We barrived shortly after the noon rush had passed. It was easy to find seating that accommodate two adults and three children, including one in a high chair. The staff... More

We stopped here on our way through. I have eaten at several Bob Evans in the past and always had good service and good food. This place was terrible. Everything was sticky dirty. It took over an hour to get our food and then our order was wrong. I will never stop here again and probably never go to Bob... More
