- Patrons tend to be 30 and older at Big Al’s, and there are “regulars” who can be easily identified. However, the wait staff is very friendly and you’re not made to feel unwelcome if you’re not in there often or if you’re outside of the typical age group. – Brittany Grubb, Examiner.com
- Great burgers and homemade soups. An experienced chef who comes up with specials you won't normally find at a sports bar. – cj6767, Urbanspoon
