“It has changed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

I gave Big Al's a pretty damming report the last time I was here more than six months ago. However my son and grandchildren talked me back to the place and I must admit it has changed. I found out from one of our servers the place has been taken over by a "chain" who have implemented their standards mainly on the staff and introduced consistency. It is noticeable. although the menu has not changed the presentation and attitude of the staff has. It is after all a sports bar so everything is average but at a good price and the atmosphere is good. I am glade I gave them another go.

“Big value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

We ate here a couple of times in August and enjoyed each time. The staff were very friendly and the food was tasty and plentiful. Great offers on most nights and my wife can vouch for the $3 margheritas!!
It was pretty quiet when we went (about 20.00 each time), with most diners finishing up around then.

“Great specials”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Fast and friendly service and how can you do better than 99cents for draft beer?
BBQ ribs, corn on the cob and french fries all for $9.99
and not bad at that. Food was served hot and it was pretty good.
I thought it might be a bit noisy as it is a sports bar but surprise - it was not.
Worth checking it out

“They changed their menu!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

We tried Big Al's again about 9 months after our first visit. The first visit was great. Our second visit, they changed their menu. Big disappointment because we really enjoyed the food the first time and the items weren't there the second time.
Food was still good. Staff friendly. Still was able to find something decent to eat.
