I like the variety of items on the menu! There is something for everyone! I have eaten here many times and always been happy with my meal. I have enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also really great homemade desserts so save room!

Our group of eight -- adults and teens -- had a great Saturday lunch during a break between soccer tournament games. The place was packed with other youth soccer players and their families, but we were seated quickly and our drink orders were taken almost immediately. Our server was friendly and attentive. Even though our group was large and we... More

Had to visit a again. Great all american breakfasts, eggs poached to order and love the hash and grits. A bit of hot sauce adds the tang. Great Bakery to go and classes to fine tune or add to your Culinary repertoire.

The breakkfast special is a great deal during the week. Two eggs, two sausage patties or links, grits or hash browns, toast, etc. with coffee for around $6.99. Server was good but got tied up talking with others a little too long and we needed drinks. I would go back for breakfast.

While my mum and I were visiting my brother last week, we ended up coming to this diner twice, once for breakfast and once for dinner. I opted for the Greek dishes and they were delicious!

I go here all the time. I love the atmosphere and the food is fresh with a great selection. The service is fast and friendly and you they give smiles for free. Try the salads and their spin on the chicken and waffle.

The Big View Diner was a wonderful place to take my daughter for breakfast. The portion sizes were just right, and tasted great! Our server was spot on for refills and checking back to see if we needed anything else. We arrived after regular breakfast hours and the restaurant was fairly empty, but it filled up the closer we got... More

The food at Big View Diner was wonderful. Our server was good, but had too many tables inside and out. It also seemed like he could only work with one table at a time. We will be back though, we enjoyed it!

Lunchtime was crowded - and noisy! People wanted to be there. Why? Food. And atmosphere. The food was good. As I looked around the room, little caption bubbles appeared over tables: "Do you know what my 401K did?" "It was time--the hysterectomy had to happen!" "Her kids are the sweetest things." "I'm not sure what I'm going to do with... More

Description
It's all about family. Big View was designed to make you feel right at home. Come casual, make yourselves comfortable! Big View always means big value. A classic diner menu with a full breakfast under $5. Menu items as low as $2.99. Almost nothing over $12.

Like gorgeous retro modern decor, food made by real chefs from all natural ingredients, vegetarian options, and a kids' menu with healthy choices. With your favorite classic diner dishes and comfort foods, Big View is a concept whose time has come...again!
