In town visiting family. Always like to try local restaurants. I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and quantity of the food. Great hearty home-made soups. More burger choices than you can imagine.

Had breakfast recently at the Big Four Cafe for the first time. I have eaten there for lunch but never breakfast. I am happy to say that the breakfast was just as delicious as the lunches I've had there in the past. Definitely will be eating more breakfasts there in the future.

We love this little out of the way place. Their egg convictions are amazing. The atmosphere is great for family and friends to catch up. Service is excellent. Prices are fair.

Great food as always and awesome service. If you're coming to Batesville, check this place out. I ordered shrimp tacos and my family had breakfast items. Food is always great.

I live in Indianapolis and my daughter lives in Cincinnati. We are always looking for a place to meet. We hit the jackpot when we found Big Four Cafe. The food is excellent. The staff is very friendly and attentive. And the food is reasonably priced.

Big four has a number of breakfast and lunch items, including a list of at least 30 burgers ranging from standard to PB&J burgers. But I like their stuffed French Toast.

The Big Four Cafe has really great tasting food. My experience with the service has always been positive. Michael Jewell, our waiter, was quick and always checking in on us to see if we needed anything. I had the special for the day, a pulled pork wrap with cole slaw, and it was excellent. The kitchen staff are super chefs.... More

My family and I have dined here several times. The food has always been good, (typically breakfast for us) and the staff is attentive and polite. It's location for some might be a little confusing, but once you've eaten here, you'll remember how to get back.

Everything about the place makes me want to continue to eat there for Sunday breakfast. The food is good and the service very good.

I have been here many times. With family, with friends, and once by myself which makes me uncomfortable yet it was great. The atmosphere starts with you walking in the door to a hallway that leads to the restaurant. If you have entered an assisted living home then you know this hallway. Somewhat sterile, bland, and not the Big Four's... More
