“Food was great!”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Bob Evans is a chain that boggles my mind! The food is usually good and reasonably priced. They have a large selection to appeal to anyone in your group!

However, they are so inconsistent with their service and food quality. I have visited MANY locations in MANY states over MANY years. Whenever you go to a BE, its like rolling the dice! Usually good food, but often the service stinks! Sometimes they both are bad!

This one looked like it was recently remodeled and looked nice. The breakfast was EXCELLENT! However, the food took FOREVER to come and although the waitress was friendly, she NEVER checked on us after she brought our food! Then we waited FOREVER for the check! It was not very busy and I like to tip but it is not automatic. If she stopped by to see how our meal was and said sorry for the wait, I would have tipped! Working as a waitress, I thought tips were important....

Come on BE, hire some management from chains with good service like Cracker Barrel or Chick Fil A that can clean up your service and you will thrive! Right now, it seems like you will not survive!

“fast service, good food”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

Our bus, with 50 people, stopped for lunch here on a Sunday. We called ahead, but did not have reservations. Sitting with at least 4 to a table, we had our lunch and left the restaurant in an hour. Our waitress, Nancy, a 25 year employee,was fantastic. The food was very good. We have eaten at a Bob Evans restaurant many times, and never had a bad meal.

“Breakfast IS better here”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

This place recently got remodeled and it has just made the experience that much batter. Seated promptly and our breakfast, as always, was made to order. It's my favorite place to get breakfast.

“Love this place”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

We have not found anything that we don't like yet. We eat at every Bob Evans we find on our trips. You can't miss with the food, service or cleanliness at Bob Evans.
