Big Al's is this Mecca of all things fun. The bowling is great, and there's lots of arcade games. You can also watch the game or the fight here. The food is your typical sports bar fare. The chicken is great, and the nachos, too!

We've been driving by Big Al's for a while wondering what it was. Then, I found a good discount at Costco and bought gift cards. We went for my stepdaughter's birthday and had a ball! There is a great bowling alley, private bowling alley, restaurant, bar, and a giant game room. We all played and had a ball. My 87... More

My family and I went for New Year's Day to watch the Seattle Seahawk game. We chose this place because of its family friendliness, and because there are multiple large screens for viewing the sports games. I ordered a Bloody Mary to get my New Years started. It was huge and delicious. Not a lot of goodies in it for... More

Bowling, arcade games, huge bar with many TV screens, good food and service. There was something for every member of the family on a rainy day. Burgers, pizza, sandwiches, great fries, crisp salads. What's not to like. We shall return!

Been here quite a few times and must say its ok but not absolutely great or spectacular. The atmosphere is fun and obviously greatly themed with sports. Is a great way to watch a game or race. Food choices are great be that for a sports themed Resturant/bar. A bit spendy for what you get, but good. What I have... More
