I always remember going to the 'Big Boy' with my parents growing up. The food and atmosphere were great. Price's were cheap to say the least. And Hot Fudge cake, yum. fun way to relive some good old memories.

Seems like this place has been around forever. Remember it as a kid and not much seems to have changed. Food is fair for the most part. There is a large variety of items on the menu and especially sandwiches. Hate that they changed to Pepsi products when they had always had Coke products.

Frisch's has been a long time favorite of our family. The change from Coke to Pepsi moves them to three stars from 5.

My favorite things at the Frisch's restaurant is the fish sandwich on rye bread and the hot fudge cake. I am huge fan of the ham and cheese omelette! I only come here maybe every other month and it is frankly hit or miss with the consistency. My last visit was this week and the fish I believe had been... More

As a kid I always loved the sandwiches. As an adult I can't bring myself to eat any of the cheap food that they serve. Salads are wimpy and lack crispness. Can't bring myself to eat more food when there's so many great Selections in Cincinnati

Admittedly, I had trouble locating any other food nearby (we were attending a local performance at the Ice Cream Factory) - and so this was our only option. I AM glad we stopped here, though. The restaurant was an hour from closing and seemed happy to have us. Our server was kind and the only glitch came at the end.... More

The Frisch's on Central Parkway is definitely the worst I've been to. I've been here several times and always for the breakfast bar on the weekends. Every time I went, the service was poor and their breakfast bar is always poorly stocked. We waited 5-10 minutes at a time for biscuits because they couldn't keep them in stock. And this... More

Good took over an hour and a half. We were the only party in there. Manager argued with me and told me the wait time was normal. I will NEVER eat there again or any big boy.

Had the salad bar and everything was fresh and delicious. The service was great and even when they were busy the waitress took time to keep the drinks filled. I would recommend to anyone visiting Cincinnati.
