Restaurant is clean with good serving team. It is just what you would expect at a Big Boy Restaurant.

I have never been here before! It was good! It's a cozy little place. Waitress very attentive. Good old school charm. They make hot cakes here instead of pancakes!

Big Boy serves their regular breakfast/lunch menu, but has an extensive weekend breakfast/brunch buffet, complete with pastries.

Love big boy. Had it all my life. Some are better then others but this location is always good. Staff is kind and my waitress heather was very kind and always checking on me. Thank you for being so kind and helpful.

Lousy tasting breakfast, coffee tasted like it was made with sewer water. Asked the waitress what was wrong with the coffee and I might as well have talked to myself. Dirty surroundings and I remember eating there years ago and I thought I'd try again. Well it'll be decades before I go there again if ever.

Their brunch on Saturday and Sunday is a pretty good deal especially if you like a few wings with your breakfast.

The food is average. The prices are right in line. The biggest let down is,it is dated and not the cleanest place to eat at. The staff was friendly and service was quick. It's a place where you eat and never really talk about the food, good or bad. Just forgettable. Nothing really sticks out.

They make a great eggbeater omelet. My husband likes the regular breakfast. The servers are very friendly and we always run into someone we know.

We always stop at this Big Boy when travelling on Highway 69 through Michigan. The food and service is always great. We have always been treated well by the people that work there.

Stopped for diner with my wife on our way home from a short vacation. Easy to find just off I-69. The service was good and surprisingly the food was better then expected. I ordered veal parmesan with my side being a salad. The salad was very nice and larger then expected. The meal was very nice with a good sauce... More
