Venue Information

In 1900, Joseph Yaccarino arrived, kicking and screaming, from Italy with his parents and eleven siblings. Having learned to walk, talk, and eat solids, he made a name for himself – “Biggie”, as it chances – as a comedian in the 1930s. In 1941, someone told him the world was the mollusc of his choice – and, with great prescience, he chose clams. He started with a pushcart, shucking clams for happy customers. Demand grew to the point he had to recruit his son. Soon, the pushcart was not enough and they opened the first Biggie’s Clam Bar, right here on Madison Street.

Three generations later, the strict standards laid down by the original Biggie’s are what keeps driving Biggie’s forward. These include excellent, friendly customer service; the freshest, highest quality ingredients; and a comfortable, casual place in which to enjoy it. You can be sure that you will get the freshest food and the coldest beer (or the most delicious cocktail) prepared to the highest standard and served in a comfortable, laid back atmosphere by a friendly server with an honest smile – and isn’t that what it’s all about? This is a great location for dining with the family. Create memories in comfort.
