While in Houma, we tried Big Al's which did not disappoint. Oyster's were fresh and reasonably priced, but the superstar was the fried Soft Shell Crab which was awesome. I highly recommend it.

We enjoyed the food, even though it was a little pricey. The portions are very large! A large order of fries would feed at least three people! Great service!

I went to Big Al's with some friends for lunch on Saturday just recently and was surprised to see that the weekend lunch crowd was virtually non existent. We were seated immediately the waitress arrived shortly after and started us with our drinks. We were not drinking alcoholic beverages although they can be purchased there. We were offered an appetizer... More

Boiled crawfish and shrimp were boiled to perfection and the potatoes, sausage, and corn were flavorful.

This restaurant is fantastic!! My husband decided to try the crawfish boil with potatoes and sausage. He never tried this before and a couple next to us saw him struggling with the crawfish so they gave him some pointers!! The portions are huge! I had the fried shrimp and French fries and could not even eat half of it because... More

We are in Houma on business and our local contacts suggested this place. Great choice where the seafood is local, the beer is cold and the servers fun helpful and great at bantering with the customers. If you get Rebecca, be prepared for an entertaining experience...she didn't miss a beat with her retorts to our end of a long day... More
