Great Menu

The menu had so many choices that we ate there two consecutive nights for dinner. The chicken pot pie was delicious with big slices of chicken and delicious vegetables. The crust had the Big View emblem on it and was so flaky.

I had the ribs.,they tasted good and were more than I could comfortably eat. My work partner had the Beef Brisket. His was tasty but he felt a little shorted on the meat portion. If the server had been a little more attentive I would have rated it higher, we had to ask for refills and such. i would eat... More

Love this restaurant - service is friendly, food is prepared well - I especially love the roast turkey cobb salad, edamame, pot roast, spinach pie, cakes and milk shakes!

The food sounds good and looks good when it comes to your table but it definitely lacks in flavor. On my personal experience our server lacked people skills and was borderline rude. It was almost dead at the restaurant during my visit and it still took over 45 minutes to get our food. I will say some dishes other members... More

We were traveling to Charlotte to meet family. They suggested this restaurant so we went there for breakfast. We weren't disappointed! I had an omlet with stone ground grits and whole wheat toast. The food was delicious, hot, and plentiful. The toast did come out unbuttered so I suppose if you want it buttered you'd have to ask the waitress... More

The service was great! The food is superb. The bake goods are outstanding. It's worth the trip. We were in a group of 5 and the wait was not long. Try the fries with gravy and cheese and the salmon.

First time there. Wide open entry. Fabulous looking cakes behind the counter. Also saw Challah bread in a basket and I wasn't sure it was real but it did bring back diner memories. On scanning the menu I saw a lot of choices beginning with egg whites. Then I saw it Challah bread french toast. Four half slices arrived perfectly... More

Terrible horrible experience. My food came out wrong. The cheesy manager came out and tried to sweet talk us. Brought out the wrong food...again. We got it to go and when I got home it still wasn't right the right temperature (got a burger). And it was bland. I will never ever ever EVER go again!!
