We stopped in for breakfast figuring we could get a decent meal. The hostess was nowhere to be found. Two different servers told us someone would be there soon. After finally getting seated, it to a while for our server to even acknowledge us. After giving her our order we sat and waited for our coffee, don't they usually bring... More

Took forever to get coffee. Then after a very long time we got our food. To top it off the food was terrible.

this is one of the best stops in the mid state area. some of the diners in the area are pretty lame, but this is a great stop especially considering it is a chain. the food was well done and the service was friendly and efficiant. nice for couples, which was one visit, and also for families, another visit. yes,...

My friend had the eggs over easy, one of the yolks was broken and he got no toast, the hotcakes I ordered were bigger than the plate and the syrup ran on the table, had to ask for extra butter twice.....do yourself a favor and go to the Grayling restaurant or one of the others, I dont feel good.... :/

and this one didn't disappoint as far as what we're seeing w/ Big Boys. The food was decent but definitely isn't like it used to be. The place is run down and the food was only so-so. Their Big Boy burger is nothing to brag about at all. The hot fudge cake was good, better than the meal.

Our family stopped here for lunch. Food was normal Big Boy fare. Service was okay, but again nothing special.

The restaurant itself needs a little renovation work done, but it certainly does not affect the taste of the food. I had a turkey clubhouse, and actually had REAL turkey, not lunch meat. It was really, very good. My husband ate the fish and chips, and the grease was a little much. The french fries were very good, but not... More

Stopped by for a quick lunch while running a few errands. Made a pit stop...ladies room was a mess. The cleaning schedule showed last clean was around 8 am. Our visit was well after the lunch rush. There was a small group of ladies who were (relatives) hanging around the restroom, weird. The restaurant floors look terrible and the place... More

We needed a quick bite while travelling and we were overnighting in Grayling. Tried this establishment. On first impression I was not impressed as the carpet was filthy and they had a buffet of food that had sat out for who knows how long. It needs some desperate updating. The waitress was very nice and we had a burger and... More

We love Big Boy! This Big Boy is not our favorite though. It's good but not great and the service is iffy.
