We went with some friends and we all had kids. This place has big tables for big groups away from the bowling area. This place is also great for adults to watch a game on a huge screen. Wait staff was awesome!

Happy hour is worth it. Drinks are okay. Staff is hit or miss. Dont order to go, and if you do go not during Happy hour expect to over pay.

After a week of taking teenagers around to see the natural side of Portland Big Al's was a nice change of pace. Bowling and a large arcade with 2 bar areas for the adults.

This place is awesome! Bowling, arcade, full bar, and sports on tv. This place is great for people of all ages. Also, I was very impressed with the staff. We were met at the door and escorted inside to the front desk.

Kids were more upset and frustrated than anything. Broken down games, some games over $3.00, adds up quick with two wee ones.....
