We want to begin by thanking everyone for a wonderful summer. Your patronage and goodwill have allowed us to keep our doors open these in these recent months.

Now that the temperature has started to change and we enter fall, we are transitioning into an indoor moment.

To help facilitate the best possible indoor dining moment we have: installed three state of the art air scrubbers with UV lights and HEPA filters, we have HEPA filters on all of our rooftop units, and a separate stand alone HEPA filter in the back of Big Chicks.

We have been able to open a previously sealed hallway window in Tweet for additional fresh air intake, AND last night the staff of Tweet stayed late and installed a brand new SLIDING PATIO door on the stage to bring in even more fresh air. We thank them for their hard work and great job. We thank you for continuing to support us.

We also are using all three rooms for indoor seating. This will allow us to safely seat people, and you get to look at different artwork! We will keep the patios open as long as possible as well. (Those darn yellow jackets!) Also remember there is always Big Chicks to go and pick up. Let's do this folks!

We want to commend everyone for following protocols and keeping the safety of themselves, other customers, and the staff in mind.

Hope to see you soon. 

-Michelle & Michael

Did you see Tweet on the CBS national news with Michelle talking about our air purifiers? (We actually taped lots more, but that clip was it!)

For 34 years we have been able to provide Big Chickers, in addition to a great staff, a beautiful environment and good cocktails; great bar food, drink specials, deals, free buffets, BUCK BURGER nights, all for decades! 

People have asked when will this return? ANSWER.....who knows? I don't. Right now we are fighting not only this pandemic, but an economic crisis we have never experienced before. We will continue to serve great food at reasonable prices, tasty drinks served with charm, a loving atmosphere to hold you in. We all look forward to a return to some semblance of normalcy. love michelle

Aperol Spritz 2 

An Aperol Spritz is just perfect for sitting back and relaxing at Big Chicks!


Monday - Friday 5pm - 10 pm, last table seating and order at 9:30pm.
Saturday & Sunday open 3 - 10pm , last table seating and order at 9:30pm. 

We follow strict protocols and are working with the goal of safety for everyone.  

We have installed a NASA approved air scrubber in each room of the premises. This is an air intake that pulls all the inside air in and passes it through HEPA filters, a UV light chamber, then onto a platinum surface. It kills all bacteria, fungus and viruses. It is used by NASA for their enclosed spaces. It kills H1N1 and Covid.

Inside seating is available, but limited. We are also very aware that all of us must continue to practice safe socializing. The staff takes their temperature upon arrival every day, as well as yours.

We wear masks and visors for safety, gloves where applicable. Everything you touch, from the salt and pepper shakers to the menus is sanitized after single use.

Social distancing is a must as is a mask for entry, and walking inside premises.

There is abundant hand sanitizer, free gloves if needed. Disposable masks are available for a $1. All of this is to keep everyone safe and healthy.
