You kind of know what to expect when dining at Big Boy, and this one is no exception. Good food, great servers, and a comfortable environment. They also have free wifi. I only regret that Ididn't buy one of their t-shirts that read: Big Boy, It's a Michigan Thing

Since the restaurant changed owners it has gone down hill. Service is awful and meals are very small with a big price. Not going back to a place where you are still hungry when you leave! Staff doesn't seem to take interest in the customers at all.

The food is pretty good but portions are a lot smaller than they used to be while the prices are a lot more. The multigrain hotcakes are great!

The food was minimal. Salad bar had wilted slimy lettuce & old red onion. Wasn't worth the extra $3.99. The bathrooms were dirty, my shoes stuck to the floor. And lastly my server told us strange things. Said she'd been away from the floor for a while because she went to the bathroom. Didn't need to know that, TMI! I... More

We were here on a Sunday evening. We had the salad bar - it was OK - nothing to write home about. We were glad that not only iceberg lettuce was offered but also the mixed greens.

The food was just as I expected from a Big Boy. Portions were OK and the food was served hot. Service was very good.
