I have grown up in the north and have loved Bob Evans for some time as well as visited the original farm. As well, I normally do not review chain restaurants. However, this particular Bob Evans has gone down hill since it was built. I stayed away for sometime because I knew it was not doing well, but recently decided to give it another try. Unfortunately, nothing has changed. I ordered the Farmer's Breakfast - eggs over easy, bacon, hash browns, and pancakes. The eggs were actually done right. The hash browns had under cooked parts and burnt parts. The bacon was the same - one piece had one end burnt and the other raw. The pancakes were not light and fluffy, but under cooked and heavy as if they had too much water. I have never been a fan of the coffee, but with this meal that was one of the better parts. As well, the server took me to my table and instantly asked if I needed more time to read through the menu before I had even sat down. As well. I never got silverware so I stirred my coffee with a straw. When she brought my food, she asked if I needed anything else to which I mentioned silverware. Add to this the free WiFi was very questionable.
Normally, I would not rate a one time meal at a chain, but this is not the first time for this particular restaurant. I unfortunately will not be coming back here again. I may have to settle for Cracker Barrel - which does not have wifi.
