Wait staff was awesome, very friendly...3 of us, we ordered fries, slim jims and a cheeseburger. We all raced for the bathroom when we got back to room and ALL of us had bad gas. Not fun in a hotel room. Will pass on this...More

Wanted inexpensive dinner while staying at airport...never been Big Boy. Had great server and food was better than expected. Onion rings were a hit.

Typical BB but the twist here is the staff. With a go out of their way to help attitude and a heart-warming smile along with an old-style charm, these people make your meal experience more than you'd usually get at a BB.

A typical big boy resturant. Good food. Good service. Reasonable prices. Knew what an "Ohio" big boy was in Michigan.

Had dinner here. Just as I remembered from years ago, nothing has been changed. The food was average, our server was excellent.

looks like everything is worn, wear and tear and now I can say you took over the waffle house. Water intrusion on east window wall. Slippery Formica tops are worn thru the design 1970's style cold salad cart. lol Ask for Flo

I like Frisch's Big Boy in Ohio and this one is no exception. I enjoy the Hamburger specials and the small soup and salad bar. There deserts are also pretty good. Service at this one was quick and courteous.

Ate a late dinner here. I find the food to be good and well priced. Service was excellent, Wish I could recall the servers name, she was excellent. Location is showing it's age but it did not effect our meal.

On February 18, 2017 we went here and the women's restroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned in days, if not weeks. Human waste covered the toilets and walls. Bacteria trail can go from a restroom to the kitchen. I noticed near cash register there...More
