We go here from time to time. Kids like the breakfast bar. I like the ham and cheese omlete. Food is good. Normal sit down fast food type Frisch's.

We arrived at about 5:30 PM, and they had a salad bar and a breakfast bar on the buffet. I made the mistake of eating the buffet. Nothing on it was very good. The crust on the Quiche was like graham cracker, and tasted like it. The eggs tasted like powder. Sorry I wasted my time. My wife had the... More

The food is okay, but the wait time in the drive thru is usually ridiculously slow. If you are in a hurry, go somewhere else.

I don't understand why so many people eat here. The food is over priced and very low quality. I ordered a Philly chicken sandwich and it was served on what looked like a hot dog bun, no cheese, just onion and a little chicken. Finished it in 3 bites. They charged me over $7 for one little sandwich...never again.

Had breakfast with the in-laws...Madonna was out server. I have her a $20 and told her to give me the bill, no matter what! She not only made sure I got it, but she politely handled my disgruntalled mother-in-law, whom I finally beat to paying the bill ! Service and food were great too! But oh.....the sweet victory !

There was a long line and a long wait but it was worth it! When we finished our meal, not even a crumb was left on any of the plates. We had a total of 5 people in our party and we ate! The kids (ages 2 & 4) loved it as well as all the adults. The service is... More

Where to start? Over priced salad bar. Didn't bring toast with one meal because it burnt, finally got toast 5 min later. Sauce for chicken strips another 5 minutes. Hamburger sent back, it was suppose to be plain, but had mayo, lettuce and Pickle on it. Then she brought the Hamburger back, but no fries. Yes, we remember why we... More

Frisch's is always a great, consistent meal. The salad bar never disappoints and the hamburgers and fish sandwiches are excellent. Service is good and the atmosphere is nice.

We were passing through Madison on our way to Louisville when we needed to grab some dinner. We figured the safest place was Frisch's Big Boy. Upon arrival, there was some confusion as to where we were to be seated. Once that got out of the way, our order was taken and we waited for quite a while before we... More

Quite a busy place on Sunday at noon. We were seated immediately, our server arrived without much wait, and our food came to our table quickly. We were very surprised at the efficiency of the wait staff on this busy day. The food was very fresh and the portions were a good size for the price charged. Haven't been to... More
