Last night I found my hotel and was glad to see a Bob Evans right across the street. As I entered, I noticed a sign saying something like "everyone is someone at Bob Evans.". I was greeted and told, because they were closing in ten minutes, I would have to order something to go and could not use the dining... More

I'm surprised this was not busy at 9am on a Sunday morning, especially with three hotels in walking distance. Food and service were good.

The Bob Evans concept is "hot, homestyle meals at a good value". There are not many options for dinner in this part of the East side of Indianapolis and that makes the promise of a Bob Evans restaurant appealing. But, while the staff are friendly and mean well, the restaurant is a little chaotic and the food for some reasons... More

We were seated quickly and offered drinks right away. We were not ready to order when the drinks came and it was a few minutes until the server returned. The server was courteous and took our order accurately without notes. The food was tasty. It took a while for one meal to come. The caramel almond bread that came with... More

Our waitress, Makayla, was sweet and helpful. Couldn't recommend any other staff person, or the food. Other staff were very busy - as a diner, I felt we were a bit of a nuisance. The woman at the cash register even wanted us to wait for her to do a chore before taking our money. Fortunately, I had the right... More

I like Bob Evans and have eaten at this location several times over the years. I was seated right away and the waitress came to the table promptly and asked for drink order. I gave my order for a soda and before I could tell her that I was ready to order she was gone. She brought the soda quickly... More

Stopped with my wife on a trip to Illinois. Had not been to a Bob Evans in several years. The staff were super polite. This was a late lunch. The menu had lots of choices, and the delivery was fast. Fresh, plentiful, flavorful. Completely satisfied. We'll start frequenting other Bob Evans on our trips.

Food is standard Bob Evans fare, service was slower than usual. Server was polite, all in all an OK experience. Higher rated places would likely give a better experience.
