We came here 3 out of the 4 mornings we stayed in Florida last week. All the waitresses were pleasant and polite. The food was great and the service was very quick. We always enjoy coming here when we are down south!

not too happy with this place lately - i think they need new cooks - the food never looks like it does on the menu - ordered a spicy bacon hash (no hash) I don't know why they call it that - calls for grilled onions and mine were raw - don't know about you, but i don't eat eggs... More

We were to be a party of 10 for brunch, and we called ahead to alert them. Two of us arrived ahead of the group - but no one seemed to have any knowledge that the group was coming. A group our size required moving several 4-person tables around to accommodate us. If you've ever heard the term "Chinese Fire... More

One of my mom's favorites. Large menu, good food, large portions. Clean, well-lit, try to come after 1:00 for a late lunch with fewer people (it's popular). Friendly staff, too.

Long wait to be seated. Long wait for our drink order to even get taken. Longer wait for drinks to get brought. We were ready to order at that point. Still no attention. Finally got order taken. Then watched people who ordered after us get their meals brought to them. Our coffee stayed empty. Meals finally come and nothing is... More

Save your money and go to Village Inn instead. The food is average and not worth the poor customer service we experienced tonight. My wife and I arrived at 8pm tonight. There was no hostess in the lobby when we arrived. After 5 minutes, the cashier asks if we've been helped, we say "no", and she says she can help... More

I am a regular at Bob Evans and stopped by on the 28th for breakfast. Lindsee S. waited on me. She took my order, then brought me coffee. The only other times she came by were to bring my food and then the check. I never got a refill on coffee, and Lindsee never asked until I was finished eating.... More

We went for lunch; there were few people there. Tables were left with dirty dishes on them in the area we were seated. There was one waitress who was tending to 3 tables and it seems that she was having a hard time managing them. We both ordered the garden vegetable soup and half a ham and cheese sandwich. I...
