Stopped in on a Thursday afternoon. The food was just average but the server we had (Ariana) was the nicest and friendliest server I've had anywhere and was tipped accordingly. I try not to make it a habit eating in Bowling Green because there's not...More

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.More

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...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...More

The food is very good, Harley was our waitress and she is awesome. The place needs to be UPDATES from the dining area to the bathrooms and it needs it NOW!!!

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.More

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.More

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...More
