We've been coming here for several years now and love it. You can't go wrong with a Blule Moon and either the Crab Cake Sandwich (sauteed & topped with lettuce, tomato & remoulade sauce. Served on a brioche bun) and or the Lobster Roll (Lobster knuckle & claw meat combined with celery, onions, herbs & mayonnaise. Served on a toasted... More

There were eight of us & not one person had any complaints. The food was delicious, the staff courteous & they didn't rush us out. There was a raw bar, which we didn't partake in. The menu had something for everyone. Besides Carlstadt, they have locations in Hoboken (2), Ramsey & Kingsport, TN. I would strongly recommend you try Biggie's.... More

Went here for the raw bar, stayed for the crab cake on brioche! It was a bit divey, but modern! Loved the ambiance, music, and amazing food! We will definitely be back!

Biggie's is an excellent choice for a quick meal on the way to Giants Stadium. Great seafood, raw bar, burgers, appetizers etc. Great service, active bar scene, ample parking makes this a fun place to go before or after a game or just to enjoy dinner with friends.

Skipped the oysters and instead tried appetizers (calamari, tuna tacos) and their thin crust pizza. Well prepared, fresh and delicious. Very clean, even the rest areas. Beer selection can be hit or miss, depending on the day, but overall a very satisfying stop to watch a game or to have a good meal with friends.

The prices are reasonable, the portions are large, the draft beer stays cold throughout the entire meal and the waitstaff are smiley and seem happy to serve you. That's my kind of restaurant. I had lunch with a business colleague today and we both had a very nice dining experience. The burgers are quite good and the lobster salad sandwich... More

Biggies is by far one of the best restaurants in the area, hands down the best seafood. There is a huge selection of seafood, shellfish, and even steaks and sandwiches. Great atmosphere but expect it to be packed

Everything was really good. I had the spicy tuna wrap, it was really good and to hot to enjoy. I also got 4 raw oysters for a treat-they were so fresh I can still taste them now. I tried a couple of different tap beers that were cold and went down smooth. My daughter liked her pulled pork but my... More
