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. The kind of prices New York, Philly and Baltimore diners used to have, plus advantages they never had. 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! A classic diner menu with a full breakfast under $5. Menu items as low as $2.99.

“Average Food, Great Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Dined on a Saturday for a late lunch. While the service was excellent and accommodating, the food was just average. Being from the north, I guess I'm a brat when it comes to my definition of a true "diner". The dessert case had an impressive selection.

The staff is always friendly, the refills come fast, the food is a little pricey, but not once you see the portions!!! Breakfast, lunch and dinner always something new and exciting to try!

“Every meal has always been good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Since we moved in to our new home around the corner, this is the "go to" place when wea re hungry and not ready to venture out to try a new restaurant in Charlotte.

It is much fancier with better food than any diner I ever went to back in NJ. The menu is wide and varied. The food well prepared and flavorful. My favorite is the Shrimp and Chicken jambalaya my wife the beef stroganoff. She always has the same Italian omlett. Me I play the menu.

But no matter who your server is, they always have a smile, they always are prompt and always check back.. Now if only we had room for one of those fabulous deserts that you see when you walk in (just like every diner back "up North').

If you are south in Ballantyne try it.

“Greta variety, very good food and service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

I would actually give this 3 1/2 stars, but we can't split them! We had lunch here with friends and have absolutely no complaint. Based on that one experience, we would definitely go back. There was nothing outstanding about the food or establishment, but there was a very good variety that would allow anyone in your party to find something they like. We did not experience a wait (lunch on a Friday) for a table, for service, or for food. Some reviewers seem disappointed in that they were expecting something else (a "New Jersey, Greek diner"?). We had no preconceived notions about it and found it to be an enjoyable experience. Recommend you try it and form your own opinion. Maybe we'll see you there on our next visit!
