Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

As above. Frozen food cooked poorly on dirty kitchen equipment. Staff were courteous, but I wasn't planning on eating them

Always a welcoming staff member to help you out with breakfast lunch or dinner. From deep fried food to fresh sandwiches or fish and chips burgers etc. Always fresh and prompt service.

We were driving through Portland but not staying - with a caravan in tow! But Portland, we discovered, is not an RV friendly town - even though they have a sign proclaiming they are - when one is visiting (or driving through) and it's lunch...time, where can one park??? And then we discovered this shop - with ample parking for us and our friends, each towing a caravan. And to top it off, we were greeted with friendly smiles, a promise of good food (going by the smells within) and were not disappointed. We are very happy to promote this corner shop with their friendly smiles that says lots and good food for hungry tummies. Thanks!More

Been here many times. Usually get the freshly made sandwiches, they are very generous with the fillings & use the freshest ingredients. Great job!

Again with a need for coffee and a quick snack I ventured into the Big O and the great news is it hasn't changed it's level of friendly efficient service. The food was served quickly and the coffee was excellent as always. Haven't been here...for a few years but their reputation for great service continues and is well known around town.More

This is becoming an annual pilgrimage as part of our family Christmas trips to western districts Victoria. Per last year, couldn't be happier. Friendly staff and really fresh tasty fish and chips. Will be back next year (and remember, it is inland on Otway street,...not in the main beach drag)More

I'm an American who worked on a spud farm in Portland for about five months. I had a Jumbo burger at the Big'O' at least (at least) three times a week for lunch, each one was more satisfying than the last. I would also often...take fish and chips home for dinner. If you are making your way around and go through Portland, VIC, a stop at the Big'O' is an absolute must. A great take away for a day trip to Cape Bridgewater.More

Having read previous reviews we went to Big O expecting really nice fish and chips. The greeting we received was terrific and we happily waited for our order. On getting back to our caravan we opened the parcel and found very ordinary chips that did...not seem fresh and flake that seemed to be of the frozen variety. Thumbs up to the service and thumbs down to the food.More
