A very clean restaurant. If you like a breakfast bar a lot of people likes this about Frishes. I like the Frishes Big Boy with sweet potato fries. My only complaint you have to ask every time to make sure your food is hot.

Just OK, nothing special. Hamburgers were very small. Chicken noodle soup was not good - too salty and bland (the crackers were the best part).

Fast friendly service. I had the club melt. Delicious, and topped it off with strawberry Shortcake Supreme. My husband and i enjoyed our meal. We left full and happy.

Their big boy burgers are amazing! If they can fill up a pregnant lady they can fill anyone up! The waiter we had was nice.. So was everyone else. I'll be returning soon.

Everything was so greasy. Onion rings were almost burned and completely crumbled. Portions of fries and rings were really small. Soda tasted flat. Waitress was sweet though.

We had breakfast at Frisch's on the 4th of July. We opted to eat from the breakfast buffet and wish I had chosen a menu item instead. The food was ok, but it was very much run-of-the-mill and the same fare you'd get anywhere for a breakfast buffet. Some items were nearly empty and some of the choices weren't very... More

The burger was good the salad bar soup bar and fruit bar were minimal at best. The waitress was good. She however was mistaken on the cost of the salad bar with an entree. The dressing was horrible possibly spoiled. No variety on the salad bar. The soup was burnt from being out too long. I Will NEVER GO BACK.
