    Food was cold. Long wait for food. Very greasy onion rings and too spicy. Another order of onion rings was burnt and also too salty and spicy. Cod fish was cold. French fries were frozen fries (not homemade) and were also cold. Appetizer potato skins wasn’t worth the price. Only four pieces

    We made reservations and was seated very quickly. Our drink orders was taken 1 at a time. So by the time the last person got there drink the first person was almost done. We ordered appetizers and we waited over an hour. They came out cold. Sent the onion back as it was too cold to eat and was informed that they had no more. We did eat some as we were hungry but it was very disappointing. Won’t be going back.

    The server wasn’t very friendly she looked tired or in a bad mood she never smiled when ask what we wanted to drink. The Irish nachos was burnt couldn’t even eat them they did take it off the bill, they gave us the wrong wings the sauce wasn’t what we order they did return with the correct sauce.

    I had asked for a booth in bar when I booked. The girl never even looked at the reservation and while they were not busy was going to seat us elsewhere. I had to tell her what I asked for when I booked. We got a booth in the bar. The service was soooo slow that we were afraid to ask for a second drink because we didn’t think we would get it. We skipped desert and went elsewhere for that part of the meal. The main course was delicious though so that was good.

    Wings were good but no hot enough as I think they waited to bring both items at the same time this resulted in the wings getting cold otherwise the food was very good. Service was excellent and price was great.

    Just went out for super. The service was poor this time. I asked for cheese on my garlic bread, partner asked for Ketchup. We didn’t get either. Could have had a third drink but server never came back to table so we left ASAP. Last visit service was excellent.

    Our meal at BIGS provided food of moderate quality and value (compared to other similar types of pub restaurants), though the service provided was commendable. For example, my caesar salad was SOAKED with dressing and almost had as much bacon as lettuce (no exaggeration); and who knew too much bacon could even be a thing?! I had to remove bacon to my plate. The appetizer potato skins were tasty but small portion (4 pieces). The steak sandwich was not anything outstanding. It should be noted the setting was very comfortable from a COVID safety perspective given the obvious efforts to maintain a healthy business model for workers and patrons.

    food wasn’t very good and honestly made me feel sick afterwards, the mozzarella sticks were terrible and when i told the waitress, she offered to get me something else and i got garlic bread which also wasn’t great. but then she made me pay for the mozzarella sticks... wasn’t the best experience.
