My daughter and I ate here three times in the two days we stayed at a nearby hotel. It was clean, pleasant and well-lit. We were not familiar with this chain. I had thought it might be like a Denny's or Village Inn but was pleasantly surprised. Bread accompanies most if not all entrees (even came with my soup and... More

Love their breakfast but also soups are great. We stay in hotel close so we can walk in and bring food back to the room very easy. Staff is very friendly. Sunday mornings can be packed so you may have to wait.

This place used to be great for brunch. Not anymore. The food is tasteless and very greasy. Terrible place.

It's got that diner look and feel but the food is prepared very well. Try to make a reservation before hand as this place gets crowded for the dinner rush

This is a rather small but freshly updated Bob Evans location. I came with a group of 10 high school students and everyone needed a separate check. The server was obviously inexperienced and had a few missteps but overall handled the group well. Food portions were about right and although not cheap, there a few values to be had on... More

If you live in Ohio and want to go out for breakfast, Bob Evans is always at the top of the list! Must try the sausage and gravy with biscuits and hash browns

It was a busy late Saturday morning at this location near the OSU campus. Not a long wait. Very tasty and good country-fried steak with home fries, eggs, the famed home-made biscuits AND lots of gravy. Who can ask for better?? Really excellent as a "cure" for a cold January day!! Service was good, nice staff, etc.

Bob Evans serves the best broasted chicken you have ever eaten. They also serve breakfast any time.Real down on the farm cooking.
