“Nice place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

We had drinks and dinner there last night. We had a very nice time. Our waitress, Jordan, was fantastic. She was attentive and didn't rush us as it got busy. I love beer, so place with many, many choices was a nice change. Although I'm not a fan of Ann Arbor Brewing I was easily able to choose beers that I do like. Can't get Shiner Bock or 312 at home on tap, so that was great. Oh yeah, the Thin Mint martini was also pretty awesome!!

“Lots of beer but bar food selection and quality is so-so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We'll be honest here: we never think "we're hungry" and think of Big E's. We usually only think of them when we want some cold beer in a clean bar. The food is decidedly bar far fare. We've had nothing bad but also nothing outstanding. I can't remember a particular meal there which tells me it was just so-so. They do have outdoor seating which is a rarity in Midland and that, by itself, is a selling point sometimes. Sitting outside with a beer in the summer and enjoying finger food is nice. Our kids have never liked their meals at Big E's however. They definitely won't go back.

“Not much selection but tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I've been here a couple of times during my stay in Midland. Although it doesn't have a great selection, the food is tasty. I've tried pizza, burgers, steak and a variety of beer options. A nice place to have a group get together after work or to watch sports with their big screens. Plus, there's always people as it is beside the Holiday Inn Midland.

“Fantastic Chef's Table”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

If you are staying in Midland, be sure to check with Big Es to see if they are hosting a chef's table during your stay. It was an amazing meal in a casual, intimate, interactive setting. Ours was a beer and food pairing but they also do food an wine pairings and you'll be blown away by the quality and creativity of the dishes.
