I have to say I am a fan though it is an odd place. They seat no more than 5 or 6 at a time, at best, with one wait staff. Not sure why. Cleanliness is better than average with bussing tables being a low priority. Very friendly staff though skills vary. Food is mostly consistent and great quality for the price range. The take home holiday meals are good too and we have done most of those around town. I am a regular.

Though we've passed different Bob Evans restaurants countless times, this was our first time to visit. I got "The Whole Hog" breakfast, and my wife got chicken fried steak. The breakfast was 2 eggs, 2 sausage patties, 2 sausage links, a big slice of ham, a pancake, and a slice of French toast. Lordy!!! Not only was it more food than I could possibly eat, but it was also delicious. The French toast was the best I've had in my life.
My wife loved her chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes with gravy, and green beans. She also had the pomegranate and (something) juice drink which she also enjoyed. Our server Tracy is who really made our visit enjoyable, though. She was friendly and attentive.
To paraphrase Arnold, we will be back.

I went to pickup our Christmas dinner the day after Christmas. There were lots of call outs for staff, there was a 30+ minute wait to be seated due to staffing and there being 1 cook.
Despite these woes, the staff that was there was very courteous and explained their staffing problems to all who came in. Some chose to wait, some left. Despite all of that, they managed to greet everyone who came in. I observed all of this while waiting for my large to-go order.
I had an issue with the pickup time, which was 30 minutes different from what we had scheduled with the manager. No real big deal. That, and they were out of the popular pies. These weren't big enough hurdles for me to complain to anyone, and as you can see I still have 5 stars across the board.
The woman helping with me $170+ order let me substitute rolls for pumpkin bread, let me know about the pie substitutes, but also I have to say the order was 100% correct.
Despite their own issues, staff was very courteous! And with order accuracy being 100%, it was still a great experience. Not a lot of places offer warm meals this big on Holidays, normally most sell prepped meals that need cooking. It's nice to have this option out there, I definitely encourage anyone to use Bob Evans for their family meal!

Food was okay, other than the hard as rock potato’s and weird tasting omelet. Our server was great though and it made our visit better! Thank you River for your smile and great service 😃

Had a delightful time at Bob Evan's. Our waitress Audrey was very courteous. She bought our drinks quickly and took our order. The food was brought out in a reasonable time. The sausage mushroom omelet, banana bread, Wildfire Chicken Salad and beef vegetable soup were delicious. I highly recommend the strawberry pie. Yum! We noticed mixed reviews, but we were impressed by the wonderful service and quality of the food. Will return to Bob Evan's again. 😋

My fiancé and I visited for breakfast on July 4th. The hostess immediately greeted us and said the wait time was 20 minutes. We could tell that the restaurant was short staffed when we looked around, but we stayed. We talked to another couple while waiting to be seated. Twenty minutes went by fast. The waitress greeted and took our drink orders about 2-3 minutes after we sat down. It took about 15 minutes for our order to be taken. It would've been taken sooner, but she was dealing with an unreasonable customer at the table behind us. Anyway, the food was served hot and was delicious. We both were satisfied with the service and food.

My daughters and I enjoyed our hot and fresh food. Also our waitress provided great customer service! This was a good experience because I don't normally dine in.

This evening my family and I enjoyed a small get together at this restaurant. Our attendant, Tonya, made this the most delightful event you could imagine. The food was spot on delicious as usual. We all enjoyed fresh hot food right off the grill. Large portion sizes is always a plus coming here. To top it all off the reasonable prices in addition to a generous military discount really saves wear & tear on the ole wallet.

Love, love, love Bob Evans. This location did not disappoint. The location was clean, the food was amazing, and the service was top notch. I was so impressed with the manager on duty, Sean. He was bussing tables, seating guests, and delivering drinks. Although it seemed they were short handed, our waitress, Jellissa, never let on. She hustled, but was so sweet and patient. I cannot brag on her enough. Absolutely recommend this location.

I am pleased with the food and the service at this Bob Evans. The food is hot, fresh and delicious. The workers that I have dealt with, have been kind, patient and professional. I live 2hours away and usually everytime that I am in the area, I will order from this Bob Evans . It feels like home cooking and the price is good.
