Bigelo's Bistro has been an institution in Edwardsville for as long as I can remember, and I've been here since the mid 1980's. It's smaller sized restaurant with an "L" shaped dining area around an "L" shaped bar. Parking is usually most easily found in the public lot behind the restaurant, and there is a rear entrance from the lot.... More

Great place to stop in for lunch or dinner. Their BLT is an amazing sandwich. Very good pizzas and salads also. Great beer and wine list to choose from too.

We did not know Edwardsville & were looking for a nice place downtown. The name & look in the window encouraged our stopping. We were quite pleased. The server was friendly & knowledgeable. Good menu choices. Food was very good, large portions, and very reasonably priced considering all of this.

I was in town on business and had eaten at just about all the places in town. Food was as good as any I had had, but Ashley behind the bar was probably the best I have ever had. Spinach salad was great, summer pasta was good, and service was the best. Try it

I really enjoy the variety on Bigelo's menu. I have been pleased with everything I have ordered, but their soup selections are my favorite. Additionally, their waitstaff are very accommodating.

I grew up in Edwardsville and never paid paid attention to this place- maybe because it's very unassuming from the outside. Decided to try it on a whim and so happy we did. Incredibly friendly wait staff. House chips were good. I ordered an oven baked sub and it was great. I don't usually like waffle fries, but these were... More

When they're good, they're great. The spinach salad can be so fantastic that you wonder why you aren't eating here daily or so bad, you never want to see spinach again. The same goes for the other salads, too. When hot, the waffle fries are to die for and when cold, they're awful. I always want this place to be... More
