Since the restaurant changed owners it has gone down hill. Service is awful and meals are very small with a big price. Not going back to a place where you are still hungry when you leave! Staff doesn't seem to take interest in the customers at all.

The food is pretty good but portions are a lot smaller than they used to be while the prices are a lot more. The multigrain hotcakes are great!

The food was minimal. Salad bar had wilted slimy lettuce & old red onion. Wasn't worth the extra $3.99. The bathrooms were dirty, my shoes stuck to the floor. And lastly my server told us strange things. Said she'd been away from the floor for a while because she went to the bathroom. Didn't need to know that, TMI! I... More

We were here on a Sunday evening. We had the salad bar - it was OK - nothing to write home about. We were glad that not only iceberg lettuce was offered but also the mixed greens. The salad bar does include a couple types of soup. Our server was exceptional. We did like the fact that they have mini-desserts.... More

The food was just as I expected from a Big Boy. Portions were OK and the food was served hot. Service was very good.

Had the breakfast buffet on Sunday and it was very good. Good selection of items, everything hot and refilled before it ran out. Restaurant itself was clean and all serving staff were friendly. Had my drink refilled 4 or 5 times without having to ask even once. Would recommend to anyone in this area of Michigan for good food at... More

I have always had great service here as well as great food. The buffets are always steaming hot and the salad bar is never dissapointing.
