Big Al's offers bowling and a full arcade for the kiddies. We attended a birthday party, with a private bowling lane. We had a large group we ordered off of the appetizer menu. Nachos were good, wings delicious, onion rings amazing, and overall a great time was had by all.

We were at Big Al's recently and while my wife was in the women's bathroom, a male employee just came walking in. As you know women all doing all kinds of stuff in the restroom. One of the female employees told me she gets changed in there. There were little girls in there...

The manager, Elena, was too busy to talk with us and the other employees acted as if this is standard procedure. This is not right and we were amazed with the employee attitudes.

My husband and I went to big Al's to grab dinner and watch the game on their massive screen. We were seated right away by the nicest hostess who also got our drink orders since the server was tied up. The server decided to go to the bigger table that walked in after us before coming to take our dinner order. I ordered the $15 Salmon fillet with parmesan mashed potatoes,veggies and a $2.50 side pear and pecan salad. My husband ordered the $15 tri-tip and mashed potatoes with veggies. I got my salad after about 10-15 minutes and it was quite tasty but we waited for about 30-40 minutes for our dinner to come out and not worth the wait. My Salmon was tasteless,cold and dry as a bone.The potatoes were barely tepid at most. The veggies were the only palatable part of dinner. The server asked if our dinners were good and I had to tell her it was horrible. I didn't want to replace it because I have heard horrors about food going back to the kitchen and getting spit in your food or worse because it makes the chef mad. To their credit,the manager came out and said that he agreed it was not done the way it was supposed to and if I didn't want something else,he would take it off our bill. That goes a long way with me because a lot of places now won't acknowledge or credit for returns. So if I was going to rate the manager and hostess,I would give them 5 stars. We have been there before and disappointed in the menu choices for kids but wanted to give the bar menu a chance. Lesson re-learned: Don't order fish in any place that isn't a fish restaurant and don't expect great food in a bowling alley...We had fun bowling there at other times,even thought it was pretty spendy.

We have gone with our kiddos and as an adult night out, either way it was perfect! With the kiddos it was a blast, plenty to do, playful and fun, games, icecream and snacks. Fabulous! As adults we hit up the huge bar area first then got a private lane with the music videos playing behind the lane and a personal server. It was one of the best nights out ever! Perfect!!
