It's all about family. Big View was designed to make you feel right at home. Come casual, make yourselves comfortable! Big View always means big value.

I have given this place several chances to bounce back, but they just can't seem to get it right. Brunch here is a nightmare. the wait time is easily an hour, and then when you finally get your table it takes the staff forever to get to you. They can't even get the food right and after several visits to... More

Having read and heard a lot of great things about the Big View Diner, I was excited to give it a try but it really didn't live up to my expectations. It's a striking building and parking was fine, and walking in the door, you get this wonderful aroma of cookies baking, but then… it just didn't do it for... More

We have eaten at Big View several times and have never been disappointed with the service or the food. But tonight was above and beyond the norm. The food was great (shared a ham and cheese omelette with grits); the dessert was great (shared a strawberry cheesecake and pina colada cake); and the service was great. Our server, Sara, went...

We took the whole family, children, grandchildren, and were very favorably impressed. Everyone got to order their own favorites, from breakfast, to burgers, to main dinner meals. We were seated almost immediately (party of 6), and our waitess, Holly, was right there, assisting with answers about the meals, bringing the grandkids drinks almost immediately, and putting our appetizer request in...

My family and I were looking for a new place to eat on Sunday and my husband remembered The Big View Diner. We weren't sure of what food they served (and no, we didn't google it)! Before we opened the Diner door, the aroma of the bakery hit us full force and I was in love! We all ordered something... More

Met with a business associate here for lunch one day. This place is much more than what I would normally envision when I hear the word "diner". The location was convenient for our meeting, and there is plenty of parking. The place is very nicely decorated, the staff are professional and helpful, and the menu has something for everyone at...

This is a modern take on a diner, with modern decor, with great food! First, you walk in and in front of you is a glass case full of bakery items. MMMM! then you are seated. You can sit at the counter, or in the restauran or the sepperate sports bar area. I really like the sports bar being away... More

Great service, wonderful coffee, weekday full breakfast can't be beat both price wise and quality! We visit at least once a month. Good lunch and dinners as well.

Very good food, I had the brisket, absolutely excellent!!! Very good service, everyone was friendly. We were all in the back party room and never wanted for anything. They were very conducive to all we needed as far as computer hookups for the pictures and songs, everything there worked well with no problems.
