We arrived 10 minutes before they were taking down the Breakfast Bar. Our waitress was very helpful advising us that they wouldn't be freshening it up in case that was what we wanted. We weren't there for it, but she was very courteous, helpful the whole time. The eggs & pancakes were good as usual.

Generally go there for breakfast. We like everything about it.....except the eggs. The scrambled eggs are terrible. Other than that, enjoyable.

We were driving through and saw the Big Boy, which reminded us of days gone by. We stopped for lunch. Had the salad bar. It was average. Nothing exciting. Had the cheeseburger and chocolate milkshake. Cheeseburger was average. The milkshake was wonderful! Very tasty and the only saving grace of the lunch.

A very clean restaurant. If you like a breakfast bar a lot of people likes this about Frishes. I like the Frishes Big Boy with sweet potato fries. My only complaint you have to ask every time to make sure your food is hot.

Just OK, nothing special. Hamburgers were very small. Chicken noodle soup was not good - too salty and bland (the crackers were the best part).

Fast friendly service. I had the club melt. Delicious, and topped it off with strawberry Shortcake Supreme. My husband and i enjoyed our meal. We left full and happy.

Their big boy burgers are amazing! If they can fill up a pregnant lady they can fill anyone up! The waiter we had was nice.. So was everyone else. I'll be returning soon.
