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

The restaurant had very few customers upon arrival. We were seated at a dirty table, had to request the server to clean the table.. the jelly display was empty.. the salt was clogged... My menu had food on it and it was sticky... The hash browns tagged freezer burn! Our food took forever for a restaurant so slow!! A huge... 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...

I love their ham & cheese sandwich and loved the potato wedges. Do not know, why they no longer have them. Their wild berry tea is awesome and they always give you to take on the road.

Have been here before and whilst not a particular exciting experience at least it was reasonable. This occasion was confusion from the off, on a not so busy morning. The greeter got confused over our name requesting it three times after we were requested to wait for a table . Our table was not level but no one was interested... More

This food was terrible. I can see now why the place wasn't full on Mother's Day. Everyone else got the memo. Well, now I got it. Our omelets did not have cheese inside of them. Ham and cheese omelet without the cheese. gross. My daughters pancakes were raw and the hash browns were cooked in rancid oil. To top it... More

We ate at this location three times during our one week stay in Mulberry. It caters to families and seniors. Our bill for two was always under $30. We had two dinners and one Sunday morning breakfast. Our first waitress Patsy was originally from Canada and we had a good chat.
