Biggies Clam Bar
Biggie’s adds new location in Hoboken, NJ
Biggie’s Clam Bar is already quite a bit of a restaurant operation – with three locations (Hoboken, Carlstadt, and even one in Kingsport, TN!)
They’re getting set to open up a new spot in Hoboken at 36-42 Newark Street soon – taking over the Clam Broth House.
A lot of Hoboken411 readers were wondering why the Clam Broth House lasted barely two years in such a great location, but feel that Biggie’s will fare much better.
Time will tell!

Biggie’s Clam Bar reviewed in Hoboken, NJ
Reviewed May 2006 by our newest contributor, Toby. She is a Hoboken resident with lots of opinions to share!
It was an evening after work, my girlfriends and I wanted to get a quick bite to eat at a laid back place that we could show up in sweats, flip flops and tank tops. A place not along Washington Street; somewhere hidden amongst some side streets. We walked in and the atmosphere was like picnic tables indoors, with chalk boards displaying a menu of seafood, burgers, sandwiches and more. I felt like I was in my bathing suit, you know, with the sand stuck to your feet, all sunned out, stepping up to a shack, ordering my food. Memories of the boardwalk almost!
The service was great, they took our order right away and began shucking the clams in front of us. My girlfriend ordered the clam chowder, we shared the clams oreganata and fried clams. I wanted to try the mussels, but they were all out, damnit! We sat outside at a picnic table and they brought out the food to us when it was ready. There must have been 10 or so cars pulling up, families and all, going in picking up orders and pulling off. That place certainly is a gem.
My friend said, the Clam Chowder, which to me looks like minestrone soup, was "good", had a lot of clam bites in it.. I am not a clam chowder eater, but I thought it'd come out creamy. Chowder : a soup or stew of seafood (as clams or fish) usually made with milk or tomatoes, salt pork, onions, and other vegetables (as potatoes) ; also : a soup resembling chowder.
