I ate here after taking a doughnut class with their pastry chef, Hannah. I won't leave a review about the class -only the buffet after. Chicken Parmesan with spaghetti was served, as well as grilled salmon, grilled vegetables and cubed potatoes. I must say out of everything, I liked the potatoes more than anything. All the other food was just... More

My brother and I, and our wives, hosted our Mother for a birthday lunch here today. This was my first visit. The food was very good, with generous portions. The menu had a lot of choices for lunch. The service was outstanding; our waitress was attentive and funny. You should check this place out - and leave room for dessert!

Don't be mislead by the name. It does not fit this fine restaurant in my opinion. All restaurants have cooks this one has a CHEF! The menu covers the board and everything I have tried has been perfectly prepared and served.😊😊

A friend and I met here for lunch last week. She had the chicken pot pie and said it was wonderful. I had chicken fingers, grilled veges and mashed potatoes. The chicken was thin slices, battered I think in bread crumbs and fried. They were ok. The grilled veges were great and the mashed potatoes were real not instant. Save... More

Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, the menu choices at Big View are awesome. The portions are substantial and the food is really, really good. It's a very popular place and always busy, but the wait times for a table are never bad. Table service is just ok, but I think that is a management problem and not a personnel issue. Everyone...

As a diner, the menu is large but the quality and preparation is just average. Service was efficient but nothing that rates as anything more as "trained" staff. It seemed to be crowded, so give a pass on the cleanliness of the floor. Specifically, wife had the turkey and stuffing...just okay. The corned beef reuben was a bit better than... More

This is the only real diner we have yet to find in Charlotte. It can get very crowded, but that shows you how good it is. It is worth the wait. The staff is friendly and hard working. The food is great quality and plentiful.
