I wouldn't normally review a chain restaurant because generally they are pretty standard wherever you go, but this one was particularly bad. When we arrived, we had to wait for a host/ess to greet us. This gave me time to look around. I commented to my husband that this wasn't going to go well. There weren't many people there, but...

I to Petoskey every now and then and I like to stop there at the Big Boy. I like the new one as they tore down the old one and other than the parking lot which is a bit tight and has an uphill slant to it I really like the food. Sometimes we have had to street park on... More

We came in on a Sunday around noon. Expected it to be busy. However, we got seated and it was a good 13 mins and no one came to take our drink order. We watched people come in after us and got drinks and food ordered. The icing on the cake was the people that came with their DOG in... More

People you encounter definitely define your impression of the place your visiting. This Big Boy was the BEST of all we stopped at along our route. Great service, great food and wonderful staff. Wish I could visit more often.

We usually stop at the Big Boy in Petoskey while travelling through. Food is okay. Price is okay. Coffee a little weak. Service is good. Usually busy at lunch time which is the only time we've been here. Convenient parking just out front.

As long time loyal customers of Big Boy restaurants, we visited the Petoskey location during a little vacation. Overall we were pleased but the store seemed to be struggling a bit. Previous reviews were mostly negative about the service there but we wanted to give it a chance since we truly are loyal and want BB restaurants to survive for... More

2 adults; Sunday early evening for dinner. A server asked for our drink order immediately after seating us and providedmenus. More than 10 minutes later we searched out the Manager to ask what had happened to our server since we glimpsed him with a backpack on. We understood the Manager to say that she would investigate. Manager returned, stated server... More

My wife and I went here and was ready for a nice dinner. Hmmm nice salad and some soup. Ok, here we are......................ok, here we are......................ummmmmmm. Can we have service? Well, we sat there for 15-20 minutes. At that time we walked out. Service here is terrible! I would rather go to Wendy's!
