Frisch's offers food for all ages, we had a group of 8 with prompt service, friendly staff. The salad bar was excellent.

Stopped in and had the fish and chips. It was good. Fish was what I expected. Fries or chips was very good.

Frisch's is not where I live, so every time I am in Somerset I go here - it's a MUST!!! My favorite is the Open-face Roast Beef. Don't forget the Hot Fudge Cake for dessert.

The server was sweet but the food was mediocre and the salad bar definitely wasn't worth the price nor was any of the other food.

I grew up on Frisch's unique sandwiches and love their onion rings. I wish we had Frisch's in South Florida!

This is a great place for families. I love their salad bar because it is always fresh and my kids love their desserts. Give it a try.

The hot fudge cake is a 5 star delight. They invented it, they perfected it and I love it! They also serve a great hamburger. Clean enough restrooms and dining area, salad bar is actually very tasty.

It seems to me like every time I go here it's a bad experience from finding hair in my food to just eating bad food but the worst thing of all is the customer service I receive.

Ate here twice for dinner while in Somerset for business. First time was better mostly due to my server, Alyssa. Cute, sweet, and very good at her job! I couldn't decide between the new fried mushrooms or fried pickles, so Alyssa made sure I got a mix of both! Great service! Second time, not so good. Server was mediocre...didn't get... More

I have grown up eating at Frisch's, etc. all over the eastern half of the US. This is one of the best - clean and with attentive wait staff. The buffet and soup, salad and fruit bar are always clean and stocked, and the prices are typical, reasonable Frisch's prices. We eat here quite often.

Thank Mrsnspectr
