Well dining on a budget here is key. The food is average and service the same. Sometimes I felt asking for a refill put my waitress on edge. Food was hot and I left full. But, if you're looking for a place to have a great breakfast in Columbus do a little searching.

I frequently go to Bob's for Lunch takeout. Jon at the front counter is a gem and always confirms everything that was ordered and asks if you need anything else. This process prevents mistakes and makes for a pleasant dining experience.

If you want plain, hearty food for any meal, Bob Evans in Ohio are a dependable place. They serve a great breakfast with full kids menus. Same for lunch, dinner, and a senior menu. Booths and tables and good coffee.

My daughter and I ate here three times in the two days we stayed at a nearby hotel. It was clean, pleasant and well-lit. We were not familiar with this chain. I had thought it might be like a Denny's or Village Inn but was pleasantly surprised. Bread accompanies most if not all entrees (even came with my soup and... More

Love their breakfast but also soups are great. We stay in hotel close so we can walk in and bring food back to the room very easy. Staff is very friendly. Sunday mornings can be packed so you may have to wait.

This place used to be great for brunch. Not anymore. The food is tasteless and very greasy. Terrible place.

Service was great, very polite waitress. Got our food quickly and everything tasted great! Wasn't very expensive either.

It's got that diner look and feel but the food is prepared very well. Try to make a reservation before hand as this place gets crowded for the dinner rush

This is a rather small but freshly updated Bob Evans location. I came with a group of 10 high school students and everyone needed a separate check. The server was obviously inexperienced and had a few missteps but overall handled the group well. Food portions were about right and although not cheap, there a few values to be had on... More
