was always under impression that the Ramsey location was the oldest one, but I was wrong, also it's my oldest son and his wife a favorite place to eat. Food and ambience are the same in both locations and it became a place to go during our visits back to the East Coast. During this stop - it was Saturday... More

Two sections divide this Restaurant, one is the bar area and the other is the dining room. With plenty of Flat screen TV's and pictures and signs... More

I visited that place on a business trip. My boss ordered the fried calamari rings appetizer for the table. I have to say I am far from being a fan of calamari, but for the first time in my life, I enjoyed it, really! They are served in a Thai Chili sauce that really enhanced this plate. It is a... More

Attending an event in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ and our group of 10 were searching for a place to eat that could accommodate our group with no prior notice. Biggie's was our third attempt and we all doubted we could have done any better. Each member of our party ordered something different from the extensive menu and no one left disappointed.... More

Been there 4 or 5 times in the past year or so. Very sports bar atmosphere with TVs all over the place. They do burgers right and the fries are good, as well. The menus has a sew salads and some other items. The staff is friendly and helpful. The kitchen is fast.

Visited the Ramsey location. Good food and spacious dining. Ribs were only ok. Either way good place for family night out for dinner.

I have eaten here 4 times over the last couple years. Each time I've come away thinking yeah the place is nice but the food is just average. This last time I had the stuffed shrimp and a bowl of New England clam chowder. They were average. Good service and prices average to maybe just on the high side for... More

I had the New England Clam Chowder and the Clams Oreganata which were good. Service was ok (not great, not bad). Table was full of random napkins when we sat which led me to believe it wasn't cleaned properly before we sat. I've seen great reviews on this place so maybe I'll give it another try.

Good food, service was nice also. Had the shrimp po boy. Pretty good seasoning. Gets really crowded and parking can be tough, so expect that if you are going on the weekend.
