Host and our server were nice and could give us good recommendations of the food. The food itself was pretty good, only negative thing was that the fried mac&cheese balls were still cold in the middle. They were tasty but maybe needed a few more minutes. The food in general took very long to came out even tho it seemed not crazy busy. The cheesecake they make was delicious. Bathrooms need a bit more cleaning. Will come back to try the breakfast.
Got in early on a Saturday am. Service was good. Food wasn't super hot though when it came out. That was a disappointment since it wasn't busy yet. My NJ sandwich was good but needed more pork roll on it. 2 thin slices doesn't cut it for this Jersey girl. The grits were just ok. Too gritty. I know that sounds funny, but if you've had this grits you get it. The breakfast potatoes were super good though.
Our family of 4 came in for dinner on a Saturday. The host was pleasant, and we were seated quickly. Our server Kat was the absolute best! She was very attentive and gave exceptional service. The food came out quickly, and the portion sizes were good. My fish was seasoned well and super crispy. Everyone enjoyed their food. We would definitely recommend this place.
This was a lovely experience. The family and I went here last night and had some really nice food. Typically, when you think about a diner you think greasy spoon style place, limited presentation, staff who are there for the money and not the customers, and rubbish coffee. That is not the case with The Big View. Think upscaled versions of diner favorites. We started with some onion rings which are quite possibly the best onion rings I have ever had. Beautifully crispy, not super greasy, thick breading, and a house dipping sauce that keeps you coming back for more. I had a patty melt with an added fried egg, it came on house baked, griddled rye and was excellent. Fries were beautiful and crispy too. My wife had the English Breakfast Burger minus the bacon plus mushroom. This was a monster of a burger but was really excellent. She had the sweet potato fries which were also very nice. Daughter had the kids sliders with broccoli and ate it all up without so much as a sound. She loved it! Lastly, we took home a monstrous slice of Oreo Cheesecake that was incredibly rich and must be shared by at least two people. It was very nice and something you'll want to take your time to enjoy. Finally, I would like to make a comment on the staff. This was the hardest working group of restaurant workers I have seen in an extremely long time. Not only that, they seemed to all really be enjoying themselves, lots of good camaraderie which led to great customer service and, therefore, happy customers.
I really enjoyed this diner. Jeremy was a super friendly waiter, and kept us laughing while doing his regular job great. We enjoyed our food and the atmosphere and will definitely go again.
