I do not recomend breakfast bar as i have gotten food poisoned. But its okay if you go for lunch or dinner. They no longer have rootbeer. But best hot fudge cake around. Better then the dairy dips. Good place to eat just be careful about breakfast bar.

Love the different things on buffet for breakfast. I do wish something better was made for syrup yes we love it warm but stinky mess dipping from buffet bar does it everywhere. I love the scrambled eggs with gravy. But it's always Susage gravy. Gives me heartburn can we leave that out just plain gravy?! Off the breakfast for min.... More

Stopped in and had the fish and chips. It was good. Fish was what I expected. Fries or chips was very good.

Frisch's is not where I live, so every time I am in Somerset I go here - it's a MUST!!! My favorite is the Open-face Roast Beef. Don't forget the Hot Fudge Cake for dessert.

The server was sweet but the food was mediocre and the salad bar definitely wasn't worth the price nor was any of the other food.

I grew up on Frisch's unique sandwiches and love their onion rings. I wish we had Frisch's in South Florida!

This is a great place for families. I love their salad bar because it is always fresh and my kids love their desserts. Give it a try.

The hot fudge cake is a 5 star delight. They invented it, they perfected it and I love it! They also serve a great hamburger. Clean enough restrooms and dining area, salad bar is actually very tasty.

Thank Motorcyclebuds
