Lots for the kids and families to do games and bowling.. food is ok not over-the-top great. Very busy place and very noisy. They do have areas to eat away from all the noise though. A bit overpriced.

Really love Big Al's. It is clean first of all! The night we went it was very busy, which is understandable. For a night of bowling this is the only place you should go. We decided against waiting for a regular lane and doing the VIP lanes. With the 20 minute wait time, our two teenage sons played games upstairs... More

At least 5 waiters, waitresses, and bussers have passed in the past 20 plus minutes. No acknowledgement of us and I finally asked a passing waitress for a menu....did not ask us if we wanted a drink or anything... It's now been 45 minutes and glad the band is good and this is a date with my bride. The buzzer... More

The food is better than average for a sports bar. Staff is friendly and the football on the massive screens is worth it not to mention you can take the kids and let them play some games..

Very nice Sports Bar with many Tv's, plenty of seating, and cold beer! The food was great with a decent menu and the service was exceptional. They have a very nice bowling alley with an additional bowling alley room like I've never seen before. They also have an arcade upstairs for the kids. Big Als is in the shopping district... More

I recently attended A teambuilding function at big Al's we had secured bowling lanes in the private area for our team. We enjoyed some tasty appetizers followed by games of bowling. The service was very good, the bowling was a lot of fun and everyone was able to participate in the team building exercise.

Food was okay. Service was horrible. Waitress in dinner area did not clear one item from our table. Food over priced for quality. Bowling was way over priced and they shut our game off with no warning. Service was horrible. Every time we came back with a drink the waitress would run up. "Oh my gosh you shouldn't have to...

Nice setup. Poor execution. The service was horrible. The alley was extremely undermanned which was strike number one. Strike number two was the food and drinks were comparable to what you expect at a Chucky Cheese. Most importantly, strike three was the poorly maintained lanes. They were overly oiled, with no pattern the oil went all the way down the... More

We reserved a room upstairs. It had a full bar. They set up a banquet for our players. Parents & other family were able to order off the menu. Multiple HUGE big screen TV's can be seen through the windows of the room. There was also games in the room to keep the players entertained. Pool table, golf swing area,... More
