Always a great Italian-American food. Fresh rolls served with Pasta Dinners with or without copious amounts of minced garlic(I like). We been eating the same things here lately now that I don't work close by anymore. Had the Chicken Marsala. Thinly pounded chicken breast lightly floured and cooked with a generous amount of mushrooms with the Marsala sauce served on... More

We've been coming here for years. It's one of our favorite restaurants. They give our kids pizza dough to play with while we are waiting for the food to arrive. They love it and we love it! They are entertained while we wait for the food. Great pizza, salads and garlic rolls. Service is always excellent. Highly recommend. If you... More

Our second time here while visiting family. Great good, the garlic bread is amazing and the food was very good! Lots of cheese and very homemade. Get dessert across the street, Ice Cream or fudge.

The Big Cheese is great ! The food is excellent and the service even better. They don't take reservations so the wait can be 45 minutes +/-. If you come for a late lunch early dinner (between 4 and 5 pm) there is rarely a wait. Definitely worth the visit !

Do you 'Bleed Orange and Green'? Well, if you don't, make sure to keep that to yourself when you visit The Big Cheese. From the second you walk in, you are in a UM time capsule. So take a second to admire the photos, autographs, banners and signs - they pay tribute to your team! Over the years I have... More

Nick was my server and had my coke refilled every time I hit half empty which was unbelievable. Food was amazing and definitely helped me towards... More
