We visited the BE in wentzville mo. on Sunday August 23 2015. It was horrible. We were seated at 625pm and walked out at 650pm and still didn’t have our drinks. I spoke with the manager and he said he was sorry for the wait but did nothing to say hey please stay let me get your drinks and make this right. Very poor management skills and unable to lead his group. The people next to us had been waiting on their food since before we came and the other people next to us walked out also after talking with the manager. There were tons of tables but all of them needed to be bussed so the host had a hard time seating us. There was tons of food getting cold in the window. You would hear the cook yellingthe food was ready. It was extremely pathetic. Someone needs to go there and help that store before it loses more business.

We visited the St Charles MO location and were heartbroken to learn that the Pot roast hash and eggs are no longer available. This has been a family tradition of ours for years. It is the only menu item that stands you apart from Denny’s or any other breakfast chain. We were told that you are consolidating your menu. This makes no sense seeing as how you still offer pot roast on lunch and dinner menus. We also did not see any familiar faces. I guess our server that has worked there for 20 years was part of your consolidation. We waited 20 minutes to sit and were hungry so we decided to opt for other items. The food was okay at best and the biscuits and gravy don’t hold a candle to Hardee’s. Our senior friends also informed us that you don’t serve meatloaf either!? They are very upset. Needless to say we have no reason to return for such mediocre food and service. Give a huge thanks to your new inexperienced corporate clowns that know nothing of tradition only the bottom line.

I’m very unhappy that you did away with the best item you had on your menu . the county fair cheese bites ( real name Wisconsin cheese curds ) . that is the main reason I keep coming to your restaurants . I guess I will have start going to A& W restaurants to get my cheese . the cheese swirls are not as good :-(

I have been a weekly customer of the Bob Evans Restaurant in Fort Myers (Cypress Lake Dr._for the past three years. The quality and portion size of the food, as well as the service rendered by servers and management has always exceeded my expectations.
However on August 18th, 2015 at approx. 12:30 p.m. I dined at this location with my lady friend. Our server, Shelly R, apparently had a bad day, since her service was way below what I normally receive from her. The salad that I ordered was short of the main ingredient
“chicken,” and it took two or more requests to the Ass’t Manager, Valerie, to correct the salad error made by the individual who prepared it.
Overall, my dining experience was not good. And chances are that I will not dine here again, although it bothers me that the restaurant can operate in this manner.

Hi,
I was just at Bob Evans, in Lyman Dr, Hilliard, Ohio . I was there to buy 8 banana nut bread. The restaurant was not busy at this time, there was no customer I saw. These 2 guys, with beards and heavy set, I think one was the manager, coz he was giving instructions to the other guy, another female employee was also listening to them. I came in to get the bread, seems like they did not see anybody coming in, the guy on glasses wa even facing my side! No greetings!!! No assistance!!!! I waited for a few mins in the counter, waiting if anybody would help me with my purchase, I did not get any assistance. Not even, a word, that pls wait, or whatever!!! I am an Asian guy with brown skin, I feel that these guys are judging me with my skin color! I could not believe racism exists in this classy restaurant that I admire. I would still be buying and dining at Bob Evans, but definitely not on this location anymore! I hope you tell your crew, Asians also eat at Bob Evans!

At least let your credit card know they can take it off your credit card and talk with BE.

My husband went to Bob Evans Store 254, #431664 to get two pot pies to bring home. They had only one pot pie left and the pot pie which was nothing but dried dough and no vegetables. Since only having one pot pie, he also ordered a salad and the chicken tasted burnt and cooked on a dirty grill. VERY UPSETTING.
