We decided to order Bob Evans ' Thankgiving fully prepared meal this year. Everyone is still raving 2 days later. Everything was PERFECT. RIGHT ON TIME. Delicious, plentiful, and everyone is THANKFUL for Bob Evans on Montgomery Rd. We placed our order in advance, and we picked it up on Thanksgiving Day, at 1pm. It was actually still hot and ready to enjoy. They were extremely busy, however the staff was extremely pleasant and most kind. What a wonderful experience for our first Bob Evans ' meal. We are forever thankful and grateful to you all for your talents and kindness. The Fee Family.

The food was delicious which was amazing that we decided to eat it at all. The servers were nice and wore masks. The cooking staff did not which I imagine was because of the heat. However the manager had to reminded by the servers-staff my daughter and myself over and over in the forty minutes that I was there..to wear his mask. it was constantly under his chin. and he wouldn't respond immediately either..he'd just shrug.

This is our family's truffle season so hit up Bob Evans for the first time in forever. Saturday at 6:15 for dinner was busy and our large party of ten had to wait 30 minutes in part because they were short shifted. Our waiter, Nate, was awesome and the food was good, too. Biscuits and apple butter are a tough combo to resist. If you haven't been in a while give it a try. Conveniently off expressway by Kenwood Town Center.

Total disaster at Bob Evans Kenwood tonight (Thanksgiving). I placed an order for two dinners at about 1:30 pm, with a curbside pick up at 5:00 pm. I arrived at 5:00 pm and called the restaurant and gave my name. Whomever answered said they were running 15-20 minutes behind. I waited in my car for 20 minutes, and when no one came out with food or called I went into the restaurant. There were about 30 other people standing inside waiting for their meals. I asked someone (assistant manager?) about my meal, she took my name and started looking through a bunch of receipts randomly strewn about the counters. Other people were having the same problem. Around this time the Bob Evans employees stopped answering the phones (I heard one employee say something to the effect of "let them get their food somewhere else"). More people kept coming into the restaurant as the Bob Evans folks were not taking out curbside nor responding to phone calls. About 15 minutes later I spoke to the assistant manager again and she said she could not even find a record of my order. I showed her the email confirmation on my phone and she asked if I was at the right Bob Evans (yes...). I asked her to refund my money (I paid when I ordered) and she said she couldn't do that, I would have to "cancel" my order when I got home, which as far as I can tell I can't do. So that means tedious phone calls tomorrow trying to sort this out.Whoever manages this location needs to find a new job that does not require managerial skill.

Bob Evans (Kenwood) Tried the Sunshine Skillet as well as the biscuits and gravy. Food was warm but not Hot. Service wasn't quick but not slow either. Person I was with had to send eggs back immediately because they were room temperature. Waitress replaced and was very friendly. Service itself was great.

They were so unorganized. I placed my order last night for a small Thanksgiving meal. The meal was for my co-workers. Our lunch break is at 12. It was suppose to be ready at 11:45. I didnt get my food until 1:15. Food was good though. Tea was hot and not sweet at all.

Just left Bob Evans in Kenwood, we had a really nice experience and our waiter was really fast with our order, Nathan if you see this I want you to know your one of the best waiters I've had. Great job. Wish I could've left a bigger tip.

We ordered over a week ago a thanksgiving meal to serve 4-6 people since we are in the process of moving... this was to be picked up the day before Thanksgiving. When I got there the restaurant was an absolute disaster. They had like 30 people waiting for their food and they ran out of rolls. I was given biscuits...When I got all the food home there was barely enough to feed 2 people and the cranberry relish was absolutely just sugary syrup. Now I have no clue how I am supposed to feed 4 people for thanksgiving.What was supposed to make my life slightly less stressful has done the complete opposite. I am so disappointed and furious.

The restaurant did not prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday or all of the pre-orders that they had for Thanksgiving meals. it was nearly 2 hours for a doordash order to be ready as the customer called me when they finally got it although I had canceled doing their order.totally unacceptable especially when they know how many orders they're going to have in at least the night before

We ate in this location. Service was extremely slow. No one came to ask how our meal was or to see if our beverages needed refilled. I never received the Bisquits that were suppose to come with my meal. I asked for a meal to go and they put 4 fries in his order of chicken tenders and never gave us our drink . If you want to survive during covid times step it up!

First off would like to share that when I started my order there was an option for delivery. After getting my order home I discovered that I was missing quite a few items that were essential for the meal, like syrup for pancakes and tarter sauce for fish, along with other items, as well as no plastic utensils. I don't live real close so returning was a big inconvenience. The gentleman I talked to said he'd pass my information to the manager and I could call back the following day. I asked if it would be possible for them to deliver the missing items. He said “we don't do delivery here.” I will now have to go up tomorrow to get my missing items as I did pay for them, but the meal was less than enjoyable without some of those items!

After ordering only 2 breakfast sandwiches one with cheese & one without they still managed to mess it up 3 times in the take out. Even the manager brought me the repaired sandwich on ICE COLD BREADthat was suppose to be toasted.. Sadly they weren't even busy.The best part of the ordeal was the coffee was great & the order taker was really y pleasant. I'm gonna just cook at home for now on. This pandemic makes places feel as if they dont have to put their BEST foot forward always & I just dont want to settle for anything anymore.

Usually a pretty good place to eat however I just tried to place a carry-out order I was on hold for 15 minutes and actually drove to the store before they answered the phone to stand in line for another 10 minutes to be told that it was going to take them 40 minutes to make my carryout order and there was about 5 people sitting in the restaurant with about eight server standing around really doing nothing. So I waited 25 minutes to just walk out of the restaurant and pick somewhere else to eat

I have been a customer of Bob Evans for many years. I enjoy home style good and think this is the best place to get it. The food is changing at the Bob Evans restaurantsIt isn't as good as it use to be. It doesn't taste home cooked. The portions are smaller. While I still will be a customer, I hope they will improve the food. The service is always great and the servers are always pleasant. One dish that needs to be improved is their turkey dinner. The turkey is always terrible. Hope things change I

Since the family sold the business, the quality had gone down and the prices skyrocketed. It's no longer an affordable breakfast or dinner place. The food is nowhere near as good. The biscuits are smaller are are usually hockey pucks. It's just sad.

Went to this location for breakfast. Ordered a hot chocolate for my son that tasted like water. After she checked on us ten minutes later we asked for a caramel mocha instead. It was watery as well and did not taste like coffee at all.Waited twenty minutes for food. Every time we order waffles it takes a long time. The restaurant was not busy. My eggs, which were scrambled and premixed, came out done except somehow there were raw egg whites attached to it.The waitress went to take it off my bill. I saw her discuss it with her manager. I never got my bill back. I went up to pay the manager checked me out. she said oh oh you were the problem with the eggs. She said I'm going to have to look into that because there shouldn't be any egg whites and are scrambled eggs because it's a premix. she had her opportunity to come look at my plate before that and she was completely apathetic.I tried to go to the bathroom before we left. The bathroom was so disgusting I had to walk back out. All the waitresses were standing around texting and talking. The cooks in the back we're doing the same. I will not be back.

This Bob Evans was on the same scale as any other Bob Evans. The structure has a familiar design and the inside is well maintained. The food was delicious, just as expected. The waitress I had was great but the woman who helped me cash out my ticket seemed to be annoyed she had to help me.Overall I'm sure I'll be back at some point.

One of our favorite places to catch a meal. Great service. However, sooooo disappointed by the chicken salad and fresh fruit plate. The dish is already loaded with grapes, so why do we need to have the chicken salad loaded with them, too? By the time I flicked all of the grapes out of it, I had about a 1/4 cup or less of chicken salad left! Major bummer!

If the Heath Department Reads Reviews here's a good one!If you happen to find yourself at this branch of Bob Evans, I just want to inform you and your safety that it is more then worth the drive to the next one!No only did Jon, our waiter not know what he was doing. Jason, The General Manager also had no idea what he was doing with customer service.We where served the WRONG plate of food, Jon took the plate back, put it on the heating rack and grabbed the proper plate.... To make the issue even more of an ISSUE! They then continued to serve that plate to another customer a few tables across from us.... That we had just poked through........As we address this situation with Jason he acted as if this some how is our fault that food is not prepared, cooked, or sought after in a healthy safe manner.I hope this sways individuals, and the Health department to think twice about this location.

I came here at like 7:40 in the morning and I ordered hash browns. They were raw though. I told Barbara, our waitress, my potatoes were raw. But she claimed they were cooked. I had my boyfriend taste them too. And he said they were also raw. Our waitress said they were cooked and asked if I wanted them extra brown. I said sure. The potatoes come back and they're still raw but just warmer. The waitress seemed very angry at me because I didn't specify that I wanted them more brown. Sorry I didn't specify that I wanted my potatoes cooked. I thought it was assumed. And she didn't refill our water.

This Bob Evans used to be so wonderful. This is a pig sty. The manager and staff just stood and talked while all the tables needed to be cleaned. I counted 13 tables that had to be cleared. Food came out cold. This was a Thursday evening at 7:30. I think the board of health needs to shut them down!

Came here with the family for my first ever visit to Bob Evan's. I expected a generic Ihop/Dennys experience and was surprised with how good the service and food was! I ordered the biscuits and sausage gravy and was immediately transported back to my grandmother's kitchen, sitting in front of her homemade biscuits and thick delicious sausage gravy. I was in heaven! The bacon was crisp and well cooked without being burnt. My children ordered from the kids menu, and enjoyed their pancakes so much they were stuffed by the end of the meal! Knowing my kids it's hard to ever get them to sit and finish a meal! My husbands eggs were cooked perfectly (which IHOP can never do right), along with the rest of his huge meal. The restaurant was clean, quiet, and warm. Our food was served promptly, and our server was friendly and attentive. For the quality of this meal I would have paid double what we paid, which was less than half of IHOP's price even with kids eating free! Do yourself a favor and try this location for good food and friendly service!

I've only eaten at Bob Evans a few times. My wife and I dined this time with our two children and had a great experience. Service was very friendly and fast. The food was hot. I was especially impressed by the sirloin on the steak and eggs platter. It was quite tender and well seasoned. The biscuits are probably some of the best we've had in a while: soft and buttery. We'll definitely return.

This location was overwhelmed with Thanksgiving orders and it clearly showed in how phone calls were handled and even when in person. I waited over 30 minutes on the phone for cooking instructions for the Turkey breast because it was not included with the original order. Overall, I was not satisfied with the order or the experience with customer service and will most likely not patronize this location again.
