Good times

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.

This is such an approachable place, nice old building in downtown Edwardsville's Main Street, you walk in an seat your self. If you need to join tables for a larger group, you just do. A great variety of beers and wines are on the chalkboard and the menu has something for everybody. Steak tips in wisky cream sauce for me,... More

Nicolos is one of our favorite restaurants in downtown Edwardsville. The food is great. We have not ordered anything on the menu that hasn't been wonderful.

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

One of our faves. Great service at decent prices and never disappoints. We have tried so many things on the menu and everything is tasty. They have the best BLT ever. Love the mississippi sweets(sweet potato chips) and some very good pasta dishes and sandwiches. Even the pizza is good. Can't go wrong here.

I have been to Bigelo's a few times, and every time i have gone my food seems to be a little on the bland side. However, the prices are very reasonable.

This is my regular go to place in Edwardsville. I try to get there once a week. Love the atmosphere and the attentive friendly servers and owners. Great ale and wine. Must try the king of clubs sandwich, cheddar beer soup, and homemade chips. Daily specials and a little something for everyone.

My wife and I dine here about once a month and always have great meals. Usually get one of the specials. Good selection of beer and wines.
