We ate at this location while in town for a football game. We didn't know the area and this restaurant was very close to our hotel. The atmosphere was fine for our family, as we like the less formal experience (i.e. TV's, comfort food, sports). This place was perfect. The food was excellent, fairly priced and plentiful. The service was... More

This place was the recommendation from the desk clerk at the Fairfield Inn. He warned us it would be crowded on Saturday night and he was not wrong. Parking was sparse and we waited 20 minutes to be seated, but it was sooooo worth the wait. I ordered the chilled seafood sampler appetizer. It came with three U10 (very large)... More

just love this place. Step above typical bar food. Great happy hour menu that you could easily make a decent meal from and daily drink specials. Our favorite is the Thai chili calamari and wings, but there are other great choices. Service is always on point even when busy.Have also been to Biggies in Hoboken with same good experience.

I work a few minutes from Biggies and eat there about once a month. The place is clean and the staff is friendly. I have ordered many of the items from burgers to seafood and all have been good. My favorite for lunch is a spicy tuna roll and a bowl of a great crab soup. Just make sure you... More

Although we are only a couple, we thought Biggies is a great family restaurant. Really enjoyed the Manhattan Clam Chowder, although pieces of potato should have been a tad smaller. The chicken burger sans the bread was tasty and waffle fries good. Service was very good.

Good raw oysters. Fast attentive service. We asked the server what she recommended that could come out fast as we were headed to a soccer game and she gave us good suggestions so we kept on track.

Delicious raw, steamed, roasted clams. Food is cooked to order… special orders are accepted. Staff is beyond friendly! Best hamburgers… seafood, different pastas, specials are great. A family place. One side has a sports bar where you can easily watch football, or other games that are current. Huge bar to sit at, if you like.

Just returned from "happy hour".......very satisfying "happy hour" menu. fish tacos, not greasy at all. bar pie, serviceable,.......BEERS, nice price, $3 and$4 drafts.....selection, drinkable, but uninspiring...too cold off the tap. I would go back.....Dog and Cask has better beer selection, in smaller serving sizes, their food serving sizes stink on ice....Biggies wins the battle
