After multiple bad visits to Bob Evans, unclean conditions, burnt or bad food we decided to try Frisch's and boy am I glad we did! Food was most excellent, restaurant was clean and so were the dishes. Staff was fantastic and the bill was at...More

Stopped in for a late Sunday afternoon quick meal. The place looked clean compared to a few Big Boys I have been to. Restroom needs some cleaning. Went for the super Big Boy and fries. The Big Boy was not bad but not as good...More

Stopped in on a Thursday afternoon. The food was just average but the server we had (Ariana) was the nicest and friendliest server I've had anywhere and was tipped accordingly. I try not to make it a habit eating in Bowling Green because there's not...More

Restaurant was clean and spacious; food mediocre and unimaginative. Few 'healthy' choices; most everything deep-fried or breaded. Staff was friendly. Expensive, for what we got - both in quality and quantity. Better value & eats at a Wendy's, for example.More

Thank you for the feedback. We will claim to be old-fashioned as we serve some classics that date back to 1946, however, we do have quite a few healthy salads and grilled items for our guests as well. Our casual dining room service is competitive...More

While some Frisch's are getting a bit tired and worn looking particularly the "other" Frisch's on Wooster St in Bowling Green, this branch is relatively clean and updated although on the smaller side compared to others. We like this one for the quick service and...More

The food is very good, Harley was our waitress and she is awesome. The place needs to be UPDATES from the dining area to the bathrooms and it needs it NOW!!!

Seemed old and worn. Could be because it's in a college town. Didn't seem as nice as other Frischs I've been to. Food was ok.More

We were a large group - 10 - coming in for a light lunch before graduation. The place wasn't crowded at all. Our server was delightful, but it took forever to get our food.More
