Delicious

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.

I love their tuna melt! I usually always order it when I go there. Service was very good and friendly. I will visit them again.

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.

For the money, this place can't be beat. The servers are friendly hometown folks who try hard. The amount of food is just right. I often go there thinking I'm going to order am omelette or a burger, but I always end up ordering the fish sandwich. Excellent.

Perhaps we were there on an off day, but the service was slow and the food was tiny and flavorless. About the best thing you can say about Frisch's is that it's cheap.

Excellent waitress. Wonderful food. We'd go back if we are in Nicholasville, KY again.

Love the fish sandwich (less than $5). With fries, tea and tip less than $10. Service is really good. Thank God the Nicholasville Frisch's shut down their smoking section - that was the one thing that kept me from eating there.

One of the best "Big Boy" coffee shop restaurants left. Low prices, bargain breakfast car. After a couple visits you will find what you like, and what you want to avoid.
