Great place for Brunch and good prices

Fantastic pancakes! Best banana apple pancakes EVER! Good, low prices and great service. Would definitely try to go to Big City Diner if you are in Oahu.

When you go to this diner you feel as if you are family, not a customer. They treat you like you want to be treated at a restaurant, like you matter. The food is really, really good and the prices are even better. What makes this diner stand out is the service. It's refreshing. Great value and great service. Nuff... More

We have tried most of the menu and we seem to prefer going there for breakfast. The pancakes are yummy and fried rice pretty good (for me a little sweet).

Very huge selection of Menu choices. Lots of "Comfort Food" that has a definite home made taste. Really wonderful slalds and the Boneless Kalbi and the fried rice is to die for! Really Yummy desserts, too! Ample servings.

You know a place is good if it's filled with local families. Great food, reasonable prices! Great visit! Kalbi steak is bomb! Service was excellent from Hostess to server to kitchen! And the serve a good Black and Tan with Guinness and Bass!

The food is awesome. The portions are large, so one does not leave feeling hungry. The staff are friendly, caring, and accommodating.Parking is free and spots are plentiful.This review could be dittoed for any Big City Diner location. They have a good thing going and I am happy that they do.

Nice, casual dining on local as well as not-so-local dishes. Children are welcome and get to pick from the treasure chest upon leaving! Bonus!

Been here a couple times for dinner and each time our food and service were great. The first time we had sandwhiches and the stir fry. The latest visit we had a couple of their salads. All of them were super fresh and really tasty. We also shared the apple pie desert and it was very surprising. We expected your... More

Ginormous portions of good food. The place has really improved. The staff is accomodating (separate checks) & pleasant. Our party of 50 went for breakfast, food coming out was a bit slow but hot & perfectly done... Will be going again soon.
