I have to come to Sandusky a few times a year to meet family or friends and everytime we have gone to the Big Boy restaurant I have been seriously disappointed. Since there are very few options, my family or friends choose this locale, however I have found that eating at a drive thru would probably be more satisfying. Half... More

Clean and Great tasting food! The Strawberry pie was delicious, very freshly made, the chicken tenders were amazing too, very lightly breaded. Would go there again!

Visited around 11am on a Sunday morning and place was about 1/3 full. Ordered the Brunch Bar Buffet and, what was there kept being filled, ate like a king. Mainly their typical breakfast bar with some chicken, mashed taters/gravy included. Everything was very good and the fried (broasted?) chicken was the star of the bar. The fruit portion of the...

Our server was great. Ordered the breaded chicken plate. Chicken had freezer burn and was disgusting. The mash potatoes were almost liquid. The side of mac & cheese ordered looked like it came out of a box (no brand kind) didn't even try to eat that because it looked bad. The soup was awful. My spouse ordered the soup and... More

Restaurant was very busy, but staff was on top of their game. The server met all our requests happily and our order came out of the kitchen perfectly. We had one very picky eater with us and the server didn't miss a step. Hats off to the cook, food was very good and presented nicely. Overall at great meal and... More

Friendly staff. The restrooms were very clean, and the restaurant appeared clean as well. They have a nice menu. We had the breakfast buffet on Sunday morning. It was pretty good, but if you get there later in the morning they don't keep it stocked quite as much. Overall, we had a nice experience and would eat there again if... More

Very friendly staff, eggs over cooked but they fixed new ones. Restaurant was clean and so were restrooms. They had a great looking buffet but I eat too much and have to stay away from buffets.

We were put in the carpeted area where the waiters couldn't see us. We waited forever to get our drinks. After waiting do long for that, we were afraid how long the food would take so we got the buffet. Yet again, another failure. Food was cold and they barley pit any food out. Will never be back here again

Nice family run Big Boy that is kept clean and well managed. Pretty standard Big Boy fare so not much to say about the food other than the buffets are well kept. If you're Big Boy fan, you won't be disappointed.
