We stopped off to eat here on our way to Doctors Cave Beach and was informed that if you eat here you could also take advantage of their private beach! This view was awesome and there weren't many people there. Food was good but service was a little slow. Overall we had a good time.

We have been there daily since our arrival. I love the staff, they have been our tour guides and go to people for solid none pushy information. One young girl in particular has been extremely helpful and truly a delightful person. Sounds like I am writing a review for a tourist information place, not the case even though I wouldn't... More

Biggs BBQ restaurant is famous for its Jack's chicken BBQ and many other local cuisines. It is best to sit outside and take it all in with a Red Stripe in hand. Enjoy the ocean - looking at the boats and the aeroplanes flying past.

FYI, air conditioning in Jamaica must be a ceiling fan. The hostess asked if we wanted to sit inside where it was 'cool'. We should have sat outside. The restaurant offers great views of the beach. The food is rather expensive for a beach restaurant with very little to choose from on the menu. The jerk chicken is good but... More

Visited while on a bus tour from cruise. Fantastic location right on the beach, and they have loungers you can use. We wanted to try Jamaican food and ordered Jerk chicken and red snapper. The chicken was delicious however we were very disappointed with the fish- you could tell it had been frozen. We did feedback to the manager who... More

The restaurant is in a good location located in the middle of the hip strip. The food is good but very much like a chain and very American. Similar to other chain prices.

Advertised as a bbq restaurant I decided to try the jerk pork. Bad choice, it's oven made, tough and definitely not a Jamaican recipe. Five stars to the quick and courteous staff. They suggested the BBQ ribs next time. Oh yea, the rum punch makes it a worthwhile visit

We ate here after swimming at Doctor's Cave Beach. The food was good. When in Jamaica, it's foolish to NOT try jerk chicken or pork. Biggs offered a little of everything with great views of the ocean. For the portion provided, the food seemed to be a little pricey, but it seemed that most things in Jamaica came with inflated...
