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

Dined at Biggies with family. I had fried shrimp, generous portion, and a garden salad. Other family had Lobster Mac, again, lots of lobster! Service was friendly and fast and cost was reasonable. Sports fans can watch the TVs, always set to current games.

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
