uhmmm let me see.... if you don't like it then go somewhere else... it's not there is a cover... or ever was. the person who said it would have cost $20 before you even stepped into the place is full of crap. I been going there since it opened and never have they charged a cover. and no they do not have a standard dress code, you just can go out to a place looking like crap and expect to ease in... I don't care how much those jeans or shoes cost. $200 shoes please, some of my ties cost more. And yes there are lots of pretty ladies that work there so I can see why it can be intimidating for some women but they are usually nice. when its a busy night expect to wait for a drink. You don't complain about stuff like that in Hoboken or in Manhattan because you except it and you want to fell like you belong in there because they have set up an atmosphere of exclusiveness. What a joke, please you get treated with class if you have class. And of course every single bar in this world has locals and the people that know the staff, that's just the way it is. Some people get treated more preferably because its an old friend or someone that you see as an acquaintance either way I'm sure you would appreciate it if someone did that for you so stop the complaining. And for all the people that say it wants to be a club or this and that, no. What they are tying to do is make some money and have fun at the same time. Not many of us can say that. and finally I'm sure everyone is thinking this is some part owner or close friend or whatever, NO I'm NOT either one. what I am is a person that enjoys going there. We all are here for only a short period of time, we all choose different paths. but it does not give us the right to judge others path. yours is always not the right way, its just your way so in conclusion if you don't want to go or have some vendetta against this place or the owners then please stay out, as I enjoy my drinks

Merry Christmas 2011! Here is what the owner/bartender/promoter/ and dethroned Woodbridge Detective SAID on Big Shots Sports Bar's facebook page, reflecting the heart and soul of this "cop bar": "HOPE EVERYONE HAD A VERY NICE HOLIDAY AND WORRIED ABOUT THE HAVE'S IN THEIR LIFE AND FORGOT ABOUT THE HAVE NOTS." It is what it is. Minorities without great conspicuous wealth are NOT welcome there. Big Shots courts clean-cut white guys,loose women, and alcoholics who can handle their liquor. Lipstick lesbians with large busts who can bartend are also welcome if/when another opening arises.

Hey, don't bitch about this! Your description makes it sound like a great place. We are all tired of catering to minorities. And who doesn't appreciate loose women and large breasts! Count me in! Alfred, warm up my limo please. We are going to Big Shots baby!

Lol, who gives a f*ck if they don't let certain ppl in, not for nothing certain ppl ruin the party, like if your pants are around your ass and every other word out of your mouth is yo, exit the parking lot on route nine north make a right and drive your a** to elizabeth or Newark, and as far as Woodbridge cops, I highly highly doubt any Woodbridge cop sat there and watched anyone get assaulted!

Sunday May 3rd

I was meeting both my friends at Big Shots with my fiancÚ. I had remembered my horrible experiences at this establishment from about 3 years ago, so she had to fight tooth and nail to get me to even walk in.

There was a very belligerent drunk man that was annoying but tolerable to deal with. another man decided that he needed to give him a drunk test before letting him walk out the door. Finding out that the kid was drunk , he went on to call the kid a N*****. When the kid walked away he decided to go on about how he hates black people, calling them every different offensive words pertaining to him being black, saying he wanted to take his airbags out and let the N***** crash and die, and even looking at the security guards asking them if they agree if he's a N*****.

He then started to start with my friend that I was with, after hitting on his girlfriend and my fiancÚ. Telling him to go outside and fight him. I turned around and told the guy that I was just trying to enjoy a meal with my friends and fiancÚ, and the guy kept rambling on about how he wanted to fight.

The security guards never kicked him out, the manager did not kick him out, so we decided to pay our tab and just walk away from the problem before it got out of hand. And only until I told the manager that my fiancÚ was pregnant- he tried to take care of a piece of the bill. The manager let the racist guy stay in the bar instead of kicking him out and letting us finish our meal.

Other then the bar tender being awesome, the security and the manager obviously agreed with this guys racism and probably thought it was okay for him to start fights because we had to decide to leave instead of the manager asking the racist to leave.

The renovations looked awesome, but unfortunately the customer service will never change. It's a little sad when I can't even enjoy a meal with my family. These people agree with racism, are okay with fighting, and we will never be going there again.

Our friends that were with have 8-10 years restaurant experience, and write a very long, in detail, restaurant blog that ALOT of people follow. Not to mention that we know almost everyone in the Edison-New Brunswick area.

If you don't feel like being called the N word, or dealing with racism - DONT GO HERE
