Bigelos is a staple in downtown Edwardsville. the food has been great ever since it opened and continues to be good. Great selection...food and beer, as well as wine.

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!

Bigelo's never disappoints. It's a great venue for lunch or dinner. From the salads and sandwiches to a really nice dinner there's always something to satisfy your dining experience.

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.

I enjoy Bigelo's. It's a little noisy and fun. Often see friends here for a casual meal. Servers are usually friendly and efficient. The food is tasty and the Chef has some delicious combinations of flavors. The pasta is outstanding because of the Chef's creativity.

We chose this restaurant based on the trip advisor reviews. From the outside of the building the place looks like it would be a little more than average eatery. However when you enter the place the tables and décor are lacking and definitely look like a college diner. They did have a good variety of beers to choose from. I... More
