Ordered a tasty breakfast, one of our party had a delicious chicken Caesar salad. Service was a little bit slow, but servers were very friendly. Cook inexplicably provided extras, but server got it sorted out quickly and no extra charge.

Clean place. Big boy food is mediocre, but the cooks at this one are fantastic. Make the classic sandwiches delicious.

It's a Michigan thing! Passing through on vacation! Originally from Michigan and we always try to stop when in Michigan! We had great service and awesome food! I always get the Super Big Boy. It's a classic sandwich! Very clean and super service!

We were so excited to find a Big Boy since we had not been in a long time and we didn't have one at home... We quickly figured out what we wanted based on the menu suggestion and was told,

If you like Big Boy, you like Big Boy. You know what to expect when you go there, and so you should not be disappointed. The fries were delicious, my Slim Jim was well made, but the Bleu Cheese dressing recipe seems to have changed and it was not as 'cheesy' as it used to be. Service was excellent, which... More

The service was slow, short handed due to the weather. The food was good, but this establishment needs more help.

I travel throughout Michigan for work and this is the first Big Boy I have ever visited that did not take American Express. This is my corporate credit card so I had to pay for this emal out of my own pocket. My crew and I will be in Mt. Pleasant for two months on this job. It's a shame... More
