The server never checked back to see how the food was until we were ready to leave and when I informed her... More

Big Boy is your average old school diner type of place. The service is friendly. The place if fairly clean. Restroom was a little messy. The breakfast buffet and the Big Boy burgers are awesome. Simple buffet, not huge selection, but all fresh and tasty. Basic offerings like: eggs, fried potatoes, ham, sausage, bacon, pancakes, etc. Nothing fancy but good... More

I have been eating at this Frisch's restaurant for what seems like 30 years and I have always experienced superior service and great tasting meals. Piping hot meals served by the friendliest servers ever seen. This is a restaurant you don't want to miss. Frisch's Lancaster is one of my favorite "Top 5 Restaurants" in Ohio!

Great service and decent food but, not the same home cooked food it used to be! Decent salad bar, clean, upbeat staff, plenty of room for big parties but, miss the great food! Also, I moved and did not realize it moved from Memorial Drive to River Valley Mall!

My wife and I stayed next door to this restaurant while visiting family; convenient for breakfast and lunch over a couple days. The food selection was adequate; only ate once on the breakfast buffet-the other food we ordered off of the menu. Wasn't too bad for the price, but a Bob Evans probably better! We too can remember the original... More

I have been eating at this Frisch's for years and the food and service are fantastic! Good food at great prices. All of the servers are fantastic as they continue to provide excellent service. Most notably are Elle and Brenda. David Potts, General Manager, runs a wonderful restaurant.

My family eat here while visiting family in Ohio. The food was good. Place was a little old looking. Bathrooms were clean. Waitress was nice. Nothing special about our visit or the food. But wasn't bad either.
