Love their grinders and pizza. Great spot for Lunch and Dinner. Calzones are out of this world. If you don't like Italian Food you are missing a great little spot.

We always get the salad, pizza, bread sticks and cheese nachos. Everything is sooo good. The wait staff is also very friendly.

I live around the corner from The Big Cheese, and for a fast, tasty reasonable priced pub type restaurant, this is the place to go. Great dishes, variety of great sandwiches and huge salads to choose from. If your in a bind over lunch or supper think or this place first. You won't go wrong.

Great variety on the menu of sandwiches, salads and meals! The house Italian dressing for the salad is absolutely delicious! Great for take out or eat in. Reasonably priced!

Went here last week for lunch. Inside the restaurant is a bit dark and crowded. The restaurant needs to be updated on the older side. The restaurant is on the small side and they have both take out and dine in business. The staff was friendly. The food came out hot and was very good. Will be back for lunch.... More

I was introduced to "The Big Cheese & Pub" nearly 10 years ago, when colleagues suggested it as a great gathering spot for a mid-day meal. In a way, I almost regret that first meeting as it has steadily lead to many pounds around my waist! If dining for the first time, don't let the wood paneled-walls fool you. It... More

I can't believe I have never been to this place before. I drove by it and decided to order a pizza to take out. To my surprise that pizza was amazing . From the crust, to the sauce the cheese and the toppings it was all cooked to perfection, I can't wait to go there again.

We have come here several times and will repeat coming here often. Wait staff is very friendly. All make a point of saying hello... More
