Big AL's is in my opinion the best seafood around. Their menu offers a variety and the flavor is just right. Pictures on walls show history and the atmosphere says Louisiana! Down home service and great food will bring you back.

Big Als is a local staple for dining in our area with seafood. There aren't any healthy or gluten free items, but the servings are generous and the service A+++. there used to be two locations but now there is only one. Be sure to get there before peak times as there can be quite a wait. They have a... More

The food was not very good. Seasoning on fried shrimp was overpowered by lemon or Dijon mustard. Pricey. Gumbo was tasty.

This is kind of a Houma staple. Always consistent, always fresh. We have spent many family get togethers here and are never disappointed. The service is consistent as well.

Awesome food! Very good quality! We loved it. Good house wine! Very nice and friendly staff, especially our waitress Kamren Luke. As European we appreciated very much that Kamren was very attentive and gave us the time we needed.

We're originally from South Louisiana & really miss the boiled seafood cooked the way we like it. We got boiled shrimp & blue crabs seasoned & cooked to perfection. We can't wait to go back next time we're in Houma.

When I'm in Houma and need great food for lunch I always slip into Big Al's. I grab a bar seat when I'm alone. There are usually seats available even though there is a large lunch crowd. I start off with a bowl of gumbo or corn and crab soup. The a half pound of the boiled shrimp. Maybe a... More

Out for a Sunday drive while visiting NOLA. Big Al's is nice friendly stop on main route. Extensive menu. I had fried shrimp dinner and my friend had fried oysters. Both were more than you could possibly eat in one sitting. The shrimp didn't have a classic fresh shrimp flavor and breading was quite spicey. While the spice in the... More
