Description: 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. A classic diner menu with a full breakfast under $5. Menu items as low as $2.99. Almost nothing over $12. The kind of prices New York, Philly and Baltimore diners used to have, plus advantages they never had. Like gorgeous retro modern decor, food made by real chefs from all natural ingredients, vegetarian options, and a kids' menu with healthy choices.

I have had the opportunity to dine here twice in the past month. Both time the food was excellent, as was the service. This place is a "must reccommend".

This is a great diner for the food. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. The owners have an outstanding menu that offers the touches of a very high end restaurant. The only problem here is the the waitresses. EVERY meal we have had here (and we have had 8 or 9 meals here) it is always the same. No matter which waitress... More

We went for breakfast and 2 of us had breakfast (Greek omelet and Crabcake Benedict) and 1 decided on lunch (brisket stroganoff). The meals were all delicious and quite filling. We were not going to have dessert, but when the waiter recommended chocolate strawberry shortcake, we couldn't resist trying something a bit different. And it was oh so good!

A friend and I went to try their breakfast for the first time, and I ordered french toast. I couldn't believe how it looked when they brought it to me. It was falling apart, but when I tasted it, it was even worst. They had let it sit in the batter too long and it was soggy and not done... More

We have now been waiting 25 minutes to be seated. One table has been empty for the entire time. When I questioned the manager he said they were seating based on the kitchen flow! Frankly seated with coffee would be a nicer way to wait! Just in the area we can see there are 4 empty tables. Waiting this morning... More

Ate at Big View Diner for breakfast this morning with three buddies. After overeating the last few days, I wanted a heart-healthy breakfast. I ordered an egg whites omelet with tomatoes and cheese, and chicken sausage and whole wheat toast. It was very good. My only "beef" (pun intended) is that like a lot of breakfast spots, they do not... More

This place just rocks! Gorgeous decor, upscale and cool. The food surpassed our expectations and 5 of us each tried different things. Large portions, good pricing and service was stellar! The variety of the menu was VAST and the bakery offered beautiful, scrumptious deserts. My crab cakes Benedict was as good as I've had anywhere. The waitress told us that... More

Service (Tony) was great. I had a party of 7 and all commented how good there meal was. I had Stuffed Flounder with Artichoke risotto which was excellent. Deserts were very good - the Rice Pudding was sensational. I can & will recommend this restaurant.
