What a great food find in Edwardsville. Reasonable prices, lively atmosphere, wonderful food, and attentive servers. The food menu included a wide variety of offerings so there is definitely something for everyone. Highly recommend the Piggelo sandwich with the fresh homemade sweet potatoes chips. They also offer a wide variety of wines and beers. The homemade vanilla bean ice cream... More

Yup, comfort food, but artfully prepared. The only place I know to get a FOUR CHEESE grilled cheese (complete with a tomato slice) and the best basil infused tomato soup you'll ever have. Very, very nice servers & a nice selection of wines.

No matter how may times I've eaten here Bigelo's never fails to deliver a quality meal. The craft beer selection(draft and bottles) is worth mentioning.

Stopped in a for a quick lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Enjoyed the Bigelow sandwich. It is a good size open face sandwich with a side (I had the house salad.) Also enjoyed an adult beverage from their wide selection of beer.

We tried several things on the menu Polenta Fries - so so; Beer Cheddar soup - very tasty! Greek salad - wonderful flavors! & their Bigelos Special Pizza- It was great!! Wished we would have ordered the 7 inch instead as the rest of our samplings kinda filled us up. Since we were traveling we had half a pizza leftover... More

I'm sorry, but the food was not special at all, especially if you have lived and eaten elsewhere in the US. Pizza looked liked Pizza Huts personal pan and tasted frozen. Pasta with chicken was overloaded with garlic pieces and my guest couldn't eat it. And he loves garlic. Very disappointed.

This is a bar restaurant rather than a citified bistro. The choices are standard fare for burgers, fries, and heavy soups, esp with cream. Most items are fried, very heavy items ie; sandwiches with fries, pastas, pizza, limiting a memorable dining experience. If one is celiac, has a milk allergy or refrains from fried foods, skip this restaurant. The cuppa... More

We ate here graduation weekend and had NO WAIT when other places had well iver an hour wait. Our waitress was responsive, helpful, and our food came quickly. I had many appetizing choices to pick from. The menu items all seem to have fancy twists on good American food but not so gourmet that a picky eater wouldnt be pleased.... More

My wife and I like there pulled pork sandwich. The wait staff is always friendly and helpful. There is usually a wait on weekend nights but worth the wait if you are looking for a good pulled pork meal.

In town visiting family. Tried to visit a restaurant down the block but they were too busy. How fortunate for us! The food was outstanding. A diversified menu. We had pasta, pizza, BLT and the medallions. Not a complaint at the table. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. They have a nice beer and wine list as well. We thought their... More
