It’s been a few years since I have been to Big John’s. Went last week as we wanted a local place to eat. It hasn’t changed that much. Love the smell when you walk in. It’s always busy, crowded, and loud. We were lucky to get a table without a booking. We did have to stand and wait 10 mins... More

This is a large quick turnover restaurant offering big meals at low prices. The quality is best described as average due to the use of commercial ingredients [e.g. bulk pre-sliced mushrooms instead of freshly sliced whole mushrooms]. Service is fast but we have experienced problems with meals coming in dribs and drabs rather than together or being completely overlooked. The... More

Our first experience wasn't the best...the service doesn't exist here but the pizza was incredible. After that first pizza we thought yumm let's have it again. We'll it only went downhill. We order pickup and you stand there for at least 5min before someone even acknowledges you. Then, we always ask for extra sauce, pizza was so dry u must... More

Every thing is very good, huge meal and cost of value..Almost as good as it gets for organic food quality out here. Their smoothies reign supreme, super fresh, and their food is on par, not too unhealthy ,but just good old fashioned numbers with a crafted hand. Their service was good, the waiters were not cloying, not over-friendly, downright gorgeous... More

Big is right - huge servings - great steaks , pasta and pizzas. Huge variety on the menu - we can't go past the BBQ seafood platter which is great value at $40. Choice of sitting in or outside and it's always busy!

I hadn't been to big johns for years and thought I would give it another try ( the last attempt was a few years ago and it was awful then) . This would have to be the worst place to eat in sydney. My husband was served his meal 15 - 20 minutes before mine arrived and therefore he was... More

Lousy pizzas, lousy service, rude. Don't waste your time. Go to Crust, Woodfired across the road, or even Costas a bit further along Rocky Point Road. This place is loud, the pizzas have really cheap ingredients, and it's generally just a horrible joint. We didn't get one of our pizzas so we told them to forget it, and yet it... More
