My son had an all day lacrosse tryout and was starving so we ordered a bunch of burgers, fries and onion rings......horrible!!! The milk shake was good, but that's about all. They were the worst burgers that I have ever eaten in my life.

We love Frisch's so we will be back, but our visit this week was a total disaster. While the staff worked hard, they seemed totally flustered and not very apologetic. It took a while to get service so we ordered our food with drinks. I noticed that the Salad Bar was $5.49 with my Brawny Boy and $0.50 for an... More

The meeting lasted for 3 hours, there was a shift change so the current waitress introduced us to our new waitress and stated that she would be taking care of us that was a very pleasant surprise, the drinks were kept full the food was great and all of the unused utensils were removed when not needed. It is the... More

The food is always good and quick to come out. There is no middle of the road with the wait staff here. Either you get someone who is super friendly, right on the refills or you get someone that is horrible at waiting on you. I quit coming here for about 10 years because we kept getting horrible waitresses. Have... More

We haven't had a big boy in a few years. When we traveled to Columbus and located Frisch's Big Boy we had to stop. Big Boy sandwiches were just as we remembered. Very good, with good fries and milk shakes were great!

Breakfast bar is pretty good. We hit a good time after 11 AM since it was busy on Sunday morning. Staff nice. Easy to get in and out with a stop light.

This Frisch's was very clean and the service was great. The food was what would be expected at a Frisch's, nothing more. It would be nice if Frisch's added real Maple Syrup as an up charge so that those of us who do not want corn syrup can get things like pancakes, waffles and French toast. Also, all of their... More

On our way out of Columbus, we stopped at Frisch's Big Boy for brunch. We were served promptly and the food was good. The restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was pleasant on a very cold day. Our waitress was attentive and courteous. My only complaint was a customer who was unable to use her inside voice when speaking to... More
