The service was good. Our waitress was friendly and engaged with us. She made good recommendations. Our food was cooked perfectly and was very tasty. We shared a slice of banana bread that was very moist. The cost was better than anticipated.

Best option in Mt Vernon. Good food, but service could of been better. It took several reminders that we needed to receive a certain item before we received it. I don"t believe that is necessary. Otherwise the food was good.

Popped in here while visiting my parents. We were in around 8pm. First thing I noticed was the sour mop smell pervading the whole restaurant. Everything I touched felt a bit greasy and sticky. We were tired and hungry after a long day of moving...More

First time to Bob Evans chain and it was a pleasant surprise. Had breakfast there and the meals were very good. Asked for a variation on our egg scramblers and there was no problem doing it. Very good experience.

After driving all day, we were about worn out. We saw a Bob Evans sign and both remembered having a great breakfast at one before. So we stopped for dinner. Our excitement turned to a giant MEH over the service and food. Disappointing.

The service in this restaurant is poor. They need to remember that just because they are standing behind the counter does not mean that we can't hear or see them. We saw horseplay from many servers as well as 2 of them yelling and fighting...More
