Great menu - smells amazing!

Big Al's has been a staple in downtown LaCrosse for as long as I can remember. it has been many, many years since I have been there so we thought we'd check it out. The smell when we walked in was that of pure, pizza heaven. The garlic, the cheese - YUM! We were seated right away and were a... read more

A huge, fun, sometimes rowdy restaurant. Excellent pizza and apps. I think they have a full menu. We always go there after the Between the Bluffs Beer Fest or Oktoberfest. You won't be disappointed!

Wonderful ambient setting . Service was extremely helpful and polite. The only thing that I have a problem with is on the front window it says Sourdough crust yet I was told that they don't have it anymore . WHY? It's the niche of the restaurant the power for the money in the pockets of the staff. I've been a... More

While the pizza is a little greasy (nothing a napkin can't fix), it's really good but what I love the most is the burgers and sandwiches. Sounds weird, I know, to dine at a pizza place for a burger but it's true. Highly recommend for pizza and its sandwiches.

Consistently good service, atmosphere, food and pricing. Go here for a standard pub pizza with a pitcher of beer for good measure. A great La Crosse standard.
