Nice place but the quality of food is like a chain restaurant. I went there just to get the bloody mary because it looked really good but they were out of mix. I suspected what the food would be like and was right.

The last time I've been to Biggs was in 2014. They make some great BBQ food. The fare at this restaurant is a nice blend of American and Jamaican cuisine. The owner is originally from Texas! He came down to Jamaica, fell in love with the place and never left! LOL I also like the fact that after lunch I... More

Thank you so much for your thoughtful words. We really appreciate your patronage and hope that you'll continue to dine with us. The beach is still accessible from Bigg's.

Staff is rude, unfriendly, clearly does not want you to ask them anything.... if on the beach they never come to ask you a drink or food order. If it wasn't for the kind and friendly lifeguard I would not go back. Wifi is free but very week so can not connect

Enjoyed the Jerk Chicken very seasoned though but I have had better when in MoBay. We love being outside watching the sunset. Service was good and it was only a handful of others there eating when we visited.

Great joint for a drink or to watch a game with your friends or families. Very good atmosphere in any given sports event. No game? Dinner is also good! They also have a patio with a beach next to it. Romantic/ Family/ Friends/ Solo? All good for it!
