Not sure why I keep coming back. Oh yea, it's those darned onion rings. They are excellent, especially if you get them a little extra crispy. I also had the fried catfish plate. The fish batter is prepared with too much black pepper; it is the dominant flavor. One piece of fish tasted bad. The fries were awful. Poor quality... More

This is one of those seafood places with no frills, just hefty portions of mostly fried seafood. They do have a couple of non-fried items, so I ordered the blackened red fish with a side salad and stole several of my son's french fries. I started with the turtle soup.This was ok, not the best I've had. My husband, son... More

Enjoyed the dinner. I had the blackened red fish, cooked perfect, huge potato salad for side. Cat fish fillet's great too. A bit crowded though the night we went. We got our food served but, had to wait for kitchen to finish cleaning more silverware!!

This is by far the worst place to eat in Houma. I would go to Mississippi for seafood if this was the only place in Houma to get Seafood. Don't waste your time or Money. Red Lobster has better seafood.

One weekend a month we choose a restaurant to visit. We try a different restaurant each time since there are many to choose from. My wife loves seafood, so this week we chose Big Al's. The outside of the restaurant is something a man would love, solid stained wood and a large wooden entrance door. The best part is the... More

Every visit here has been very good. Boiled shrimp and frog legs are especially good. Good location and parking is ok. Centrally located to many other locations in Houma. Service can be improved, but it's not bad at all.

We were with large group family. Service was great. Must try the chargrilled oysters. They were so awesome! We also had a fried seafood combo. All was delicious.
