    The food and service is always great. We chose to sit outside under the tent/patio. I guess the sound of traffic is to be expected but the back was being used as storage for boxes and totes....an eye sore to look at while eating.

    Always great food, never disappointed! Had the mussels (very fresh -- broth I could drink!), and the bruschetta flatbread. I normally get the lobster roll which is also always delicious, but didn't have room for it in my belly this time.

    The staff seemed like robots, very unfeeling with little personality, and very rote, like they were reading a script. Our server was especially distracted and I had took look for her numerous times. The NE clam Chowder was very good. The mussels were OK; the wine sauce was too sour and although there was lots of garlic in it, it did not taste garlicky, like it was watered down. The onions in it tasted like they were pickled, I guess from the wine. My daughter had the mixed seafood with pasta, and she got terrible indigestion from it after only about 6 bites, and we threw it out. Took her 2 hours to recover and she had to take tums. Disappointing waste of money and will not return.

    We had a great time at Biggie’s! It was my first time there and will be returning. The service was friendly and efficient. The menu has so many options for everyone. The specials menu was really good too and I ended up ordering off of that. I made the reservation for outside which is a little noisy in that there are fans blasting warm air around, the highway is next to you and have airplanes flying over. I think I would prefer to eat inside next time but I wouldn’t be disappointed if we sat outside again.

    Biggie's is always good ... they don't skimp on portions and food is served at a fair price. You don't break the bank to eat out once in a while and the service is always great and the food is fresh. There are many choices on the menu, but unlike other establishments, it's not overwhelming. There is always something for everyone. And there is a reason the parking lot is always full .. it's that good !!

    Biggie’s was one of our usual spots in Hoboken. Since the Hoboken location closed, this is my first time to this location. The food is good, still what I expected from Biggie’s. The only complaint is that there are limited parking spaces out side of the restaurant. We didn’t find any available, and waited a bit.
