Excellent breakfast, friendly staff and reasonable prices. We come here often. The morning breakfast people are like family.

Restaurant was clean and spacious; food mediocre and unimaginative. Few 'healthy' choices; most everything deep-fried or breaded. Staff was friendly. Expensive, for what we got - both in quality and quantity. Better value & eats at a Wendy's, for example.

Thank you for the feedback. We will claim to be old-fashioned as we serve some classics that date back to 1946, however, we do have quite a few healthy salads and grilled items for our guests as well. Our casual dining room service is competitive with other casual dining venues. Wendy's is a quick service establishment. Philosophy of Frisch’s: serve... More

While some Frisch's are getting a bit tired and worn looking particularly the "other" Frisch's on Wooster St in Bowling Green, this branch is relatively clean and updated although on the smaller side compared to others. We like this one for the quick service and clean appearance, and the décor is '50s diner style but new. As always, the food... More

Seemed old and worn. Could be because it's in a college town. Didn't seem as nice as other Frischs I've been to. Food was ok.

We were a large group - 10 - coming in for a light lunch before graduation. The place wasn't crowded at all. Our server was delightful, but it took forever to get our food.

This Frisch's Big Boy is nothing fancy inside or out. But if you are a fan of the Big Boy menu, you can't beat the super Big Boy, fries, and cole slaw. The classic Buddy Boy, Swiss Miss, and fish sandwich are very good. The strawberry pie isn't what it used to be, but the pumpkin pie is quite good.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on our classic menu items. We're glad you are a fan of Frisch's. Your thoughts may encourage a new customer to try one of these favorites. We hope that you'll give Strawberry PiebabyⓇ another chance as it also is a favorite among many. More

I have stopped here twice for breakfast in the past month. Restaurant is very popular with the breakfast crowd and each time it was very busy. Menu items are very economical, quality is good. Both times my waitress was friendly and checked back frequently for coffeetea/water refills.

Stopped on the first leg of a trip for breakfast. I had some questions that took the better part of a half hour to get answered, for instance the price of an extra egg with my meal or if I could substitute an extra egg for the meat in a meal since they couldn't get the price of an egg.... More
