Big Bowl-Lincolnshire Ratings and Reviews
Service was good. Location was very busy, loud, and crowded. The food was very salty. My Wife ordered the GF Beef+Broccoli and barely got any ... beef or broccoli. My Mom ordered the same just not GF - and hers was very salty. She asked for extra spice and didn't get any. I ordered the orange chicken and only received a few pieces of chicken. The food wasn't really worthwhile.
I had the wrinkled green bean appetizer. Delicious. It had a kick and is a good sized portion. I've ordered it twice and it is very tasty.
I also had the sweet and sour shrimp. This time I asked for it to be light on pineapple and heavy on peapods. It came as requested. This is the best sweet and sour shrimp I've ever had. Breaded crispy shrimp and plenty of it in the best sauce ever. Everything is so good at Big Bowl, but this is so special, I have to now order it each time I go. Their sangria changes monthly or seasonally and is excellent.
Been here many times. Typically have reservations to avoid any wait. Service is always very good and it this visit was typical. Attentive but not over bearing waitress. Tough to move off of my favorites, so we had orange chicken with brown rice, chicken pad thai and BBQ pork fried rice. They are all outstanding, but not spicy (which is what we prefer).
The drinks are good and the non alcoholic iced hibiscus tea is terrific. If you want, have them mix it with a splash of lemonade for a great Arnold Palmer. We also tried the seasonal pumpkin dessert and it was worth the calories and the whipped cream on top was spectacular!
Overall, a great place, with good food and service and fair prices.
As always with Big Bowl Lincolnshire, they did a wonderful job. They kept my daughter's meal gluten free, including making sure she has GF soy sauce. And, as it was her birthday, they brought a small dessert with a candle in it. And it WAS gluten free as well. Awesome job, well done. Quality of service and food lived up to the high standard they've set for themselves over the years. A go to place for my family for celebrations.
We wanted a healthful meal with more vegetables and this certainly filled the bill. We wanted a minimum of salt and they were willing to put my husband's sauce on the side and make my teriyaki salmon on the light side. The cauliflower rice instead of a starch was delicious.
Service was horrible and the waitress came and asked you didn't need menus right before even asking us whether we are ordering at food bar or need menus. No one came to even bring water to the table until 15 mins or so. It was horrible service and the food was average.
Will never go to this place again.
It had been awhile since we'd been to Big Bowl so decided to go back to celebrate our anniversary...and we weren't disappointed! Food and service was great - as was the ambiance as the warm fall temps allowed us to sit outside and truly enjoy our dinner. We both ordered the daily specials and neither disappointed. Will definitely go back again...hopefully sooner this time!
We used to go to Big Bowl frequently, but the wait time was always 45-60 minutes. Now I think ahead and make a reservation. Plenty of food, enough to bring some home for a second meal. We normally get the stir fry bar as its good and pretty quick too. service was great, courteous too.
We love Big Bowl. However this time our experience was not as good as it usually is. My husband's drink arrived with his dinner and we were not happy about it.
Also we chose to sit outside and the name n reason for that is the noise level indoors. It gets tiring to have to scream to get each other heard. Good is great as usual.
