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. With your favorite classic diner dishes and comfort foods, Big View is a concept whose time has come...again! A classic diner menu with a full breakfast under $5. Menu items as low as $2.99.

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.

As stated above, the wait, the service, the noise, the wait time for food...was a little longer than I think is should have been. I ordered chicken Parmesan and a house salad...WOW, there were both fantastic, and the portions were quite large. On the down side, we had been told that their french fries tended to be "mushy", so order... More

My wife and I had had good things about Big View. The service was great and the food was even better. I had beef stroganoff and it was perfect. The desserts were unreal. My wife could not have been more impressed. I had the fall Apple Carmel Cheesecake. Everything was so good!

Do not be afraid of this dinner. It is good when you consider it is a dinner. The food is plentiful and perhaps a bit too much. Desert is huge and way too much. Service is about average.
