We looked forward to visiting Bigelo's when we went to Edwardsville for a concert. The reviews were all enthusiastic and we thought we had a treat in store.

You can always count on a great meal here. I have something different every time I go in and it's always superb. Don't forget dessert, the home made ice cream is delicious.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Edwardsville. Food is always great, great selection of craft beer, and amazing specials.

Bigelo's has always been good, it is an odd atmosphere, some days the Grateful Dead plays over the speakers, other days you get Michael Jackson, but the food is good!

One of the best in Edwardsville, not just because everything tastes good, but the variety in their menu, wines and beers. They have daily specials that keep the locals coming back. An all around good place to eat.

I can always count having a great lunch at Bigelo's. My favorite is a sandwich, and side salad. Their food not is not only great, but is consistently great. I would recommend it to anyone.
