Every time I am in the area, I stop at Big Boy. Always big portions and sometimes they have a breakfast buffet with lots of options. I enjoy having the soups. They are hearty and full flavor.

It was ok. Just your basic big boy restaurant a little pricy for a family of three but it's also a tourist area so we expected it the food was hot,and exact to our order. They had a nice buffet as well which looked good .

Big Boy is Big Boy. Our group had mostly the sandwiches or burgers and all were the way we like them. Friendly and efficient wait staff.

Salad bar was good, turkey dinner special lacked cranberries and dressing. Waitress was great and the pie was excellent.

Had a "special" lunch treat with a friend. We were seated at a table which was a little too out in the open so asked for a booth. We were immediately reseated to a booth & were served drinks quickly. The wait for our food wasn't long for as busy as they were & the food was exactly what we... More

So we stopped at the Big Boy in Manistique for lunch and had the buffet (Labor Day, 2016). My first plate of food had a hair on the biscuit. So took a new plate of food where I found a hair in the bean salad. The waitress took it to the manager who totally brushed it off. :-(
