It was amazing to see such a small eatery doing so well! The fired clams and chowder... just amazing! I thought all these little diner places were forced off the planet! Once you put one of those clams in your mouth.... well lets just say you will steal the scene from Meg Ryan!

This place has been around since the great flood. The reason is because they serve the best, freshest fried (and grilled) seafood! Counter service or take-out, no fine dining here, just good food! If you get a chance, make the trip!

Bigelow's has really good food. But it is tiny and very nostalgic. No ambiance there. But the food is delicious. The staff is friendly and curtious. My only problem, but it does not stop me from going, is eating off thin paper plates. Little pricey for paper plates and counter seating.

Started going over 40 years ago. Small, homey luncheonette feel. Stools at counter. Best fried clams around.
