Big Boy used to be my favorite place to eat for any meal but over the past 10 years it has raised it's prices and decreased the size of it's portions so that the price is not worth most of the items nor is the quality of the food as good as it once was. The wait staff & owners... More

If you know the Big Boy chain, this location will not disappoint. It is the iconic decor and standard menu. The restaurant is clean, the servers friendly. The menu includes breakfast, lunch and dinner items, along with their classic soup and salad bar. I'm a fan of the meatloaf dinner, my Dad had the classic Big Boy. The food was... More

The one thing about Big Boy is you always know you will get great meals at a reasonable price and a great variety of food. This location has special events for kids (visits from beloved characters, like Santa, super heros, etc.)

Stopped in here before starting on the Garage Sale Trail. We were seated right away, no waiting. The waitress took our drink order and returned quickly to get out order. We all ordered a breakfast special. The meals were all served at the same time came out at the same time, we're hot and exactly as ordered. The waitress kept... More

We had the fish & chips and they were ok for the price. The breading was over cooked and not much fish inside really. We have had better fish & chips at other places.

I was looking forward to a Big Boy lunch, but I ordered the knife cut fried chicken with mashed potatoes and it was simply gross. The mashed potatoes were old, over-reheated and a glom of off color gooey sludge. The chicken was worse; it was undercooked and it doesn't get more off-putting than that. On the plus side, the milkshake... More

I haven't been to a Big Boy in forever so I was glad to find one on my recent trip to Marine City. Service was excellent and so was the food. Price was what you would expect. I will be stopping by again my next trip to Marine City.

What more can I say. It's pretty much the usual fare, but the service is always great and workers very friendly.
