My wife and I ate at a Bob Evans, at a Fairfield location yesterday. Actually, my wife ate, and I could not, because after two lengthy attempts the staff was unable to prepare a blackened fish entree for me that wasn’t at least half raw. The waitress offered to bring a steak to me, but I didn’t want a steak, that’s why I ordered fish. The manager took the price of my meal off of the bill, then ignored us. As we left, we were asked by a vapid teenage cashier how our meal was. He must have thought our recounting of the experience was amusing, because he smirked at us the whole time. I’m not sure that I would ever visit one of your restaurants again, because the proper training of your employees, from greeter to management, is obviously not a priority.

My wife and I have been thoroughly enjoying your mashed potato product for some time.

However, our most recent purchase leads me to ask if you have changed something. At supper this evening we both commented on the quality of the potatoes – they had a “runny” that did not seem normal. In fact my wife said she has reheated them twice to try to get the right consistency.

If this is a purposeful change we will need to say ‘goodbye’ to Bob Evans. If not, please let us know when it is corrected.

I just left Bob Evans location just off I64 cross lanes exit and I must say me experience was very bad. We were promptly seated by a red headed hostess with a dingy white shirt and our drinks were brought to us. The waiter took our order and an hour later our fiord arrived cold and incorrect. My daughter visited the bathroom and the red headed hostess was heard snorting something in the stall this is not the bBob Evans I have come to know and love. Defiantly not what I was expecting this evening. We left this location and placed a pick up order at a Bob Evans at the i64 hurricane exit and the food at this location was good as expected. I will continue to eat at Bob Evans but not at Cross Lanes location.
