Not everybody is a tartar sauce addict like me, but if you're even close Frisch's has the sauce for you. Extra on your burger, dip your fries it's all good. It's diner fast food without the Happy Days music, but the vinyl booths and decor are similar. They also have a fantastic breakfast bar that's an all you can eat... More

My wife and I recently wanted to take our grandsons to dinner and they wanted Frisch's. When we arrived we were seated immediately but we're not provided menus for over 15 minutes. When we finally got menus we were told that there were only two servers and one seemed to pick and choose which tables she wanted. The one good... More

This Frisch's Big Boy Restaurant used to be a really great place to stop in and eat. Over the last couple of years, though, it has gotten progressively worse. We are typically very patient people in a restaurant. We're not in a hurry and we understand that places get busy. The staff here, though, is slow and tends to just... More

Had breakfast on sunday, at the same time they offered their buffet. Ordered eggs, Hasbrown and sausage links. Potatoes were cold and under cooked, Sausage was cold and raw inside. Eggs were so, so and the cold toast could break a windo

Stopped for a late supper. Our friendly server greeted us promptly and took our drink orders. The Buddy Boy sandwich (grilled ham & Swiss) was delicious. Couldn't pass up their famous hot fudge cake - vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two layers of chocolate cake, covered with fudge and topped with whipped cream and a cherry. Yum!

I often take my two 3 year olds to dinner here. We all love the food and the service is always good. The last two times I have eaten there we have had Sheyna as our waitress and she is awesome. I think I am going to start asking to be seated in her area when she is working.

We arrived 10 minutes before they were taking down the Breakfast Bar. Our waitress was very helpful advising us that they wouldn't be freshening it up in case that was what we wanted. We weren't there for it, but she was very courteous, helpful the whole time. The eggs & pancakes were good as usual.

Generally go there for breakfast. We like everything about it.....except the eggs. The scrambled eggs are terrible. Other than that, enjoyable.
