This Bowling Alley corresponds to the category of Sports bar.
So much to do .Great family outing .Good food.
Love this place. Alcohol is a bit pricey though.
So many games...so much fun!! Bowling was good too not too expensive
3 rating based on food and service. It was a little chaotic and we tried to grab anyone to help. Food was ok, nothing special.
This place was a lot of fun and has great specials
Went there to watch the Superbowl this year. Apparently they didn't realize people actually wanted to hear the game because the volume was barely even noticeable let alone distinguishable. They did a raffle for one thing that required you to sign up for the season pass. I used to work at BWW and if you want a place that does the Superbowl right I definitely recommend there instead.
Over price drinks non-personal bartender overprice games. Food is basic nothing special. Definitely wouldn't go here on the normal. Once a year sure but I wouldn't call this a favorite place to go. The best thing they have going for them is a fact that you can walk around with your drink around the establishment. But McMenamins has them beat by far
They were out of a lot of things for dinner the night we were there, but I appreciated the restaurant and management staff speaking to us directly in apologizing about it as well as comping the meal. It's nice to see that level of focus on service. The food that we did get was very good, even if not my first choice!
Nice bowling - some lanes start showing their age
This place is HUGE and great for everyone! Food is good, huge beer selection, bowling, arcade games, massive TV's, what's not to like!
Well run, bowling, arcade games, restaurant/bar. Great for kids birthday parties or guys night at the sports bar. The noise level can get pretty high, especially around the arcades. Food prices are very reasonable.
Lots of fun but a bit overpriced. Food was good though. And the drinks were strong and tasty.
Lots of things to do. Bowling and food and drinks. Kids enjoyed blacklight bowling and then arcade upstairs
Cool concept. However went to the restaurant. The appetizer came out wrong. had to ask twice for refills on tea and water. the food was not the quality what you paid for however the flavor was pretty good. Overpriced for what you get. The arcade games also were overpriced. If I go back and we'll be to bowl not to eat or play arcade games.
Honestly, the service left room to be desired. It took 30 minutes just to find a server to put in our initial drink order, and another 30 minutes between getting the check delivered and paying it. Not great unless you don't mind waiting until it's convenient for your server to, well, serve you.
Have been here many times as it is just a walk across the street from my house. A very easy place to meet up for fun with friends and family. A friend just hosted a bowling party here and had it catered by the staff. The food was great! The bowling was fun, arcade has added even MORE games. Cant wait to come back!
There is something fun for everyone to do. Pizzas were delicious and the employees are very friendly and helpful.
So much fun for the whole family. Have a pizza or Calzone!
Definitely fun, but costs an arm and a leg for the amount of time spent enjoying that fun. On the plus side the arcade area is almost always dead so no waiting to play games.
Fun and full service. A bit under staffed which can result in slow service. Food /snacks are upscale and surprisingly tasty particularly for a bowling alley/fun spot. Bathrooms clean. Ice cream is available with plenty of choices
I loooove this place, especially Wednesday nights during trivia. They have great beer and pizza too, and of course the arcade is huge with a variety of games, always a good time!
Great food good prices, better prices during happy hour. Bartender Sean is the best!!!
Big Al's is my go to place for bowling. I've never participated in a league before, but Kirk Ator, the coordinator, and his staff do an incredible job at making you feel like you're at home. The scene is a nice balance of competitive and casual. I've really enjoyed establishing friendships with some great people. Drink specials are pretty solid, especially if you like beer. Unfortunately the food is right down the middle, but it'll get the job done if you're hungry.
Nice lane with a nice bowling alley and place for video games. However, it's too expensive, incomplete for value of money. E.g. why should socks or plastic bags not be part of the bowling shoe rentals. It's already expensive as it is. Feels there is too much focus on money.
I had an awesome time bowling and with the games upstairs.
A really fun place for all ages. Nice selection of finger food & excellent table service.
Very fun place for kids and adults, best place to watch sports events. The big screen there is one of best in the city.
Fun place for all and has more that one air hockey table plus a tiny one for kiddos
Enjoyed the bowling & arcade games with my nephew's! Waiters were prompt with orders & good customer service! Thank you!
Best bowling place I've ever been too!
Great place but prices can add up quickly.
We had a great time watching the Ducks, playing in the arcade, all while receiving excellent service from Eli.
Oh what fun! This place has a little bit of everything. We bowled, drank, ate played air hockey and had a great time. I'd like to go back and sit in the sports bar during a watch a sporting event!
Don’t reserve a party early. They are not ready. Seem to walk around as if bothered and are a little condescending. One of the kids left a ball on a lane and the front staff said someone was on the way, 5 minutes later said,” oh sorry thought she went already” then two of the three guys doing nothing in the front walked down to get it.
The bowling equipment seems well maintained. The food pricing is OK for kids since they give $5 game card for $7 kids meal. Arcade prices seem higher than average. Some are up to $2.50. They do have an option for unlimited non-ticket gameplay during certain times for $10 (Sun-Thursday after 9PM). I normally go for the Kids Bowl free bowling. Good cheap fun for about 1.5 hours as long as we don't order food or play in the arcade.
We had a great time. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Omg!! It's was awesome and they're cupcakes are amazing. Already planning for the next party
This place was fun with a lot of deals and ways to save money! Came with a large group and had a ton of fun!
Fun place to bowl. Personally I don't recommend the food. Nothing I've had there really impressed me more than most beer food, just more expensive.
Trivia is good there; bar food is okay. It expensive, but there are definitely worse ways to spend your time.
We had our Bethany Elementary 5th grade graduation party here last week. The bowling was a lot of fun for the kids, and they played a bunch of crazy games (they did something different for each of the 10 sets, like use non dominant hand, stand on 1 leg, sitting down, etc.). The pizza was surprisingly good, and they even have no gluten options. After bowling the kids went upstairs and had a great time at the diverse arcade (but don't expect to get goodies of value when checking out in the store, unless the kids pool all their tickets together!).
Place is huge. Still had to wait in line for bowling but a fun time was had. Bowling, food, drinks, and arcade zones in this massive building. Difficult to find parking even with all that space.
I like big Al's. Great place for a fun date or to take the kids. Their food is good and there is something fun to do for most anyone. They have some good deals to if you go at the right time. I would have given them five except it was so hot inside. I found it hard to have a good time in slider alley because it was so hot. The thermostat was set to 73 but it was a little warmer than that. Then when you start bowling it gets really warm. I would have gladly paid and extra dollar or two for them to turn on the AC.
Came here with my family of 7 for dinner. What happened to this place? The service was terrible, they ran out of ribs and steak. Our waitress was really nice but the servers left our beer tower sitting at the bar for 20m before they decided to give it to us. Management needs to get it together, it shouldn’t take 2hrs from start to finish, and it’s a bad look that you ran out of food...
Decent amount of games in the arcade, although a few were out of order. The bowling was what you'd expect from a bowling alley. The food (we only ordered the nachos) comes in massive amounts. 5 of us barely finished all of them.
Fun place. Bring bux.
Man, first time here tonight. This place is legitimately badass! I can drink and play games...there's bowling, food, beer and even video poker
Bowling experience is okay. We always seem to get a broken lane? The food? Horrible. Over priced for what you get.
Went on a Wednesday night, food was ok but some items in our order were missing. Manager did a great job making things right. Bowling was fun and easy, good bowling deals and a great time for family or friends!
It was great people were nice arcade was fun very clean sanitary. The bowling alley was fun
Great arcade, cheap adult or family bowling, gambling, huge screen with sports playing in the eating room. Overall a great place.
Love the fries hot crispy and tasty. The hamburger is filling broil grilled. Worth $13. Gotta go back for pizza that I heard was also good!
Superb place. Really fun. Fun for all ages. Bar for alcohol lovers, arcade for game lovers. Sports watching here with friends is a must. Pretty good bowling alley too. Decent food as well, although it takes some time to come as it is pretty crowded. Go to bowl at 9, you get unlimited bowling time for 10 bucks. Overall, a fun day for all.
Its great place to bring your family and friends and have fun
Went to watch a Ducks game so maybe they just don't do well when busy even though it didn't seem too packed. Food was pretty bad and our server was rude and acted like we were somehow putting her out. They also turned off their video poker machines during the game because it seemed like it would be too much for them to have to cash out tickets AND serve people
Amazing place. I could spend all day here
This is were we good for some time together and fun. Great place
Pretty fun place to go, definitely don't take your kids there after say... 7pm. It's a place for all ages but atmospherically it changes toward an adults playground. There is a bar smack dab in the middle to attribute to that. Pretty well priced too, was quite surprised. Food it great as well. Only issue is that I feel like some games actually charge you more than what's listed but I could be wrong.
Fun, cool atmosphere. Music in the bar area is a little to loud for me. Haven't had the food in a long time so I am unsure if it has improved.
Great spot for a birthday party. My son had a lot of fun
Very cool place to be able to chill with the family; bowl and arcade, but still get drinks with the friends at the bar
I went here back in February and it was quite fun. The bowling balls in the slider alley area have cool designs. However, when my mom bought me a Diet Pepsi from the snack bar, the drink she got was actually Dr. Pepper (I don't like Dr. Pepper IMO). We then went down to the snack bar and told one of the staff members there that my soda wasn't Diet Pepsi. They then emptied out the drink and then filled the cup with Diet Pepsi.
Came here throughout the week for some bowling and arcade games. The bowling was inexpensive and pretty nice. This place has a ton of arcade games and they are new type games. happy hour has 1/2 priced arcade games. Parking lot is pretty big. Service was decent.
Our first time there, our first date out since our daughter was born and we definitely chose the wrong place to go. The desk wouldn't honor my military paperwork so that started us of in poor taste. We ordered a simple order of fries about 15 minutes into bowling, we waited about 40 minutes before flagging down our waitress, who had no clue why they weren't there. She went back and it took another 15 minutes for lukewarm fries to be brought to us. Needless to say, we won't be back.
Fun place to bring kids, convenient restaurant, and 21 plus bar for adults.
So many options and fun stuff to do. Service always friendly and quick. Great place for events and sport spectating.
We came to Big Al's as my last night out celebration before giving birth to my little one. We ordered pizza for dinner. The dough was so raw that we each ate a slice each and called it good. My friend send us home with the left overs and we basically re baked the pizza to perfection for 20 more minutes at home after taking all the toppings and sauce off to ensure the dough was cooked. It was a nightmare. We should have sent it back but we had a fussy toddler with us that wanted food. The cashier at the place you order food from was super rude and super unfriendly. She definitely needs another lesson in customer service. The front end staff ringing up lanes were so kind! ❤️
Games b a bit pricey but is overall a good treat from time to time
Had a few drinks while the kids played arcade
So much food choices. Don't come when you are hungry. A bit spendy and easy to order too much. Service is really slow. Great if you like sports as there are 10+ screens showing different games. The food is really good and is honestly worth coming just for food. The arcade is good for a few hours of family fun. The bowling is well organized with lots of lanes.
Best during happy hour. Awesome place to have a lot of fun
Love going on dates with my lady here we always have so much fun
Bowling is fun. Drinks expensive We really enjoyed the bowling. Our server was nice, available and not pushy at all. Good job! My only complaint is that charging $4 for a Pepsi is frustrating. Really??? $7 for a beer? I don't know, I just felt ripped off.
I was surprised at how delicious the Hawaiian pizza was. Nice respite from busy summer activities. The server was helpful in explaining how everything works
Perhaps some of the worst service I've ever had. First the good things though! It's a cool place. Huge. Lots of parking and it looks like a lot of fun. Lots of easy parking. Friendly hostesses. My wife and I sat in the restaurant portion. We sat down and waited for about 15 minutes before we were even greeted by anyone or offered waters. We'd see other waitstaff hanging around on their phones, laughing and goofing around with one another, and here we were - just sitting. By the time we got our food, we had been there about 45 minutes (it wasn't very busy inside) and the order wasn't even right. We were forgotten about several times and mostly neglected the entire evening. We ended up just leaving the food and walking out. I'll be back but probably only to bowl or I'll just sit at the bar.
What's not to love? Other than your wallet being a little lighter after Big Al's has everything you and your family would want for a night of fun.
Great pizza...get at winco
Two of us had dinner and then bowled a couple of games. The food and drinks were good, overall the place is big and nice looking. The only downside is that the prices seemed relatively high, as it cost about $80 for everything.
Pretty cool, food was pretty good, but a kid did come and steal a game from me so i almost ripped his ponytail off
Great place to watch sports or go for some arcade games and bowling!
Beer tubes are crazy amazing here and are $10 off after 9 pm super cool!! Staffs friendly and helpful.
Typical teen and adult hangout. Fun for everyone and plenty of TVs for all your sports needs. Service can be slow during busy hours in the evening but overall a fun place. Try and avoid large groups unless you book something ahead otherwise orders may get mixed and service will slow to a crawl.
This is a really fun place to go to. In the evening they have good deals as well like $10 all you can bowl after 9pm. Also same for the arcade
Enjoy myself again. Bartender was very friendly with personality, something I always appreciate. Love those big screens. Will be back.
We love big Al's we always have so much fun with the family and thay got good food and bowling great place for kids and adults 2
The burger was good and we love the tator tots! The wine list is not great and frankly expensive! There isn't a white wine for under $10...Duck Pond pinot gris is $14! Truly too much! We couldn't hear the post game commentary and there wasn't a closed caption so we missed the news on the NBA and PGA Championship games which we were interested in. Even the volume on the big screen was turned off. We love Big Als but they have a few issues.
Nicest bowling alley I have ever been to. The kid loves it here and they have great food. Fun for the whole family.
Great place to hang out and get your roll on. Bartenders are awesome and the staff is always friendly. New dart boards upstairs in the caddie shack are nice.
We had a large company get together here and the staff handled it perfectly. First round of food arrived promptly because they anticipated our arrival time. This was outstanding! Second round and drinks arrived well timed also. Food was slightly better than expected, but I was told this is normal, so that's good as well.
My place to go for UFC fights. But I has alot to offer food games bowling. Good way to spend sometime with friends and family.
Drinks and food were too expensive very noisy but it's a bowling alley
Horrible Service, bad food, waiting for ever
Really fun arcade bowling was fun and food was really good
Nice clean place. We choose the bowling for an hour option. We only had a few frames left before the lane shut down. Would have been nice to be able to finish the game before it quit. Nice staff
Canby: Caregiver To The Rescue is always looking for a hot spot to watch UFC... and this is top # 1 for me. Outstanding Service
I love this place......theeee most comfy restaurant/bar , arcade place in town love it
Fun place to go, but a bit overpriced. The arcade games are not really worth it. Bowling is your standard fare and the food is not bad but again is expensive.
Actually very fun, nice employees, and food taste good, oh and they also have a good selection of arcade games
Awesome place for the whole family!! Something for all ages...
This place is great as it has something for just about anyone. You might spend more money than you really expect here as things tend to be expensive. The pool room is cool if you can get a spot, I recommend calling for a reservation. If you don't mind kids running around, this is a good place to hang.
Good service and friendly atmosphere
Great Birthday Party spot. Well maintained games, nothing "out of order". Food was tasty and fast considing how busy they were. They had perfect sized bowling balls for the smaller kids and cool black lighting. Excellent place on a game day with a full bar.
Please staff your business properly. It's the second week of football season and your sports bar is woefully understaffed. The overworked staff that is here (Julianna, her trainee, Piper, etc) are getting run into the ground. They end up taking the heat, criticism, and blame for upper management's complete lack of competence. Your cleaning crew is cutting corners. Nothing like sitting down to a dirty table at 10am on Sunday morning. Every year it's the same sad story. Nothing changes. Action, not apologies.
Apologies for the initial 2-star review. I must have somehow pocket-reviewed. Updated to 5-stars! Had a great time bowling!!
It was fun but expensive. My kids and wife and I all have more fun at wunderland and spend a lot less.
Nice place. Drinks on the spendy side and food isn't to bad
Against the objections of my extended family who said the quality and especially the service of the restaurant had been going downhill, I convinced them to come for dinner tonight. Anyway. Unfortunately, they were right. Appetizers took a long time and arrived cold, the meal was half good, the rest cold. No one came to check on us or ask if we wanted more beverages, and one meal plus the corn bread hard was hard as rocks with a sauce that could not be eaten. The Greek salad and French dip sandwiches were excellent, but Cobb salad and sides were not good. Three times we got up to ask for assistance and order an alternative meal but we were ignored. Even the manager came over to speak with us and determine what was the matter, but do you think this would have spurred on the service people to try harder. We ordered milkshakes to replace fries and waited 15 more minutes. Then we had to beg for the check. This meal was expensive and you would think the staff would have tried harder, but no such luck. I worked as a manager and while we endeavored to provide excellent products, sometimes you came up short. I always welcomed customer comments as I felt that you could not fix things If you did not know they were broken. Seems like staff need some training in customer service at BIG Als before they lose their restaurant folks altogether. They need to pay attention and at least act like they care about providing a good meal.
Great place! They were amazing hosts for a birthday party we had - all the kids had a blast!!
The favorite spot for my husband and I to go on a date. Fun throw back music videos playing for the bowlers, good beer on tap
Friendly staff , fun hangout spot
Good service and variety of games.
Great staff,very adult and child friendly, had so much fun, can't wait to do it again.... really really a good place for everyone
Such a variety of entertainment with bowling lanes downstairs and an expansive arcade upstairs provided for an enjoyable evening. They have sports on multiple screens, several lounges and different areas from which one can order food.
Bowling was fun. But we had horrible wait service for it being a Saturday night. We had a party of 11 and were being served by a brand new waitress who had only been there for three days. She forgot multiple parts of our orders, gave our food to other tables, and took over an hour to bring our checks which were all split into unnecessarily small checks, and then lost one of our party member's cards and then didn't really help look for it.
This place gets packed! The chicken nachos are so bomb!!! Arcade and prizes can be a little dull. But overall this is a great place!
Big Al's is always a 5 star experience. Loads of games, a cheerful and inviting environment, and a great deal at Happy Hour. I tried the Grape Popsicle and I'm not generally a cocktail guy but it was AMAZING! It literally tastes like a melted grape Popsicle dipped into Vodka... in the best way possible. Haha! So, whether you there to bowl, game, or drink, Big Al's is the place to be if you're in the area.
Incredibly fun place. Lots to do with bowling, arcades, and a full bar upstairs, it's a great place to play and eat. Good place to watch sports, too. The restaurant has a massive projector display that can be seen by the bar patrons above.
Terrible experience with the people working the front desk, I will not be back and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
Lots of fun went with some co workers had fun and not to pushy of staff.
Great happy hour. Service can get slow during big games so be aware. Good beer selection and broad happy hour times. During games it will have a loud fun vibe.
Bit spendy but really nice lanes.wait staff for bowling so that was great
The older lady at the bar was so rude I was waiting to ask for a lemon and she was to busy talking to her friends so I grabbed a lemon with a napkin and she saw me and came and yelled at me. she could of said nicely that please let me get that for you but she yelled out saying dont do that mam!! And took all the lemons I didn’t even grabbed from and trashed them made me feel weird after that I just wanted to leave of being embarrassed
Had a great time with the family playing games, bowling and eating. The family pack with bowling and arcade cards was a good deal for an afternoon birthday party!
A fun place to take the kids. First time we did dinner service at the bowling lanes. Service was friendly but quite slow. We were halfway finished with dinner and the appetizer still hadn't come out. So I told them to cancel it since it was too late. Otherwise, kids had a great time.
The crazy tower game in the arcade is fun!
Great service, fun environment, has almost everything you want for fun: bowling alley, arcade, private events, food, bars, ice cream bar, big screens for sports.
Fun. You pay to bowl by the hr not the game though
This is NOT a small sports bar, it's a full blown bowling alley/arcade/bar and it is AWESOME. Great games upstairs great beer selection and decent prices on food! Nachos were stupid huge.
Can be a bit of a wait, and very loud but great for groups and parties. Wait staff is very pleasant and helpful. We've had really good experiences here. Will be back.
It sure was big, but there was no Al
The staff was super friendly. They brought a bigger pizza than we ordered, but let us keep it, and keep it at the price of the one we ordered. The arcade staff was awesome.There was one edgy lady running the prizes. Thanks for being so great.
So, this was a great place for the kid inside the adult. Bar upstairs was delicious and the darts, pool, and arcade video games. What a good time we all had. If you are in are for a business trip, THIS IS A MUST, for at a minimum team building experience. Food was great, pizzas finished before I noticed it had even arrived. Lol. Final word "F.U.N."!!!!!
This is a great bowling alley, with lots of options to have a good time. It was especially friendly to a bunch of us retired folks . The cost is very reasonable.
Great food and friendly people. We love Big Al's!
Fun for kids and adults. Bowling, video games, other games for tickets kids can win to turn in for prizes. Good for birthday parties, bowling, get togethers for work. Full bar. Unfortunately I was unimpressed with the food even though the menu has lots of variety.
The lanes are nice and the arcade is fun but the staff is clueless and reservation rules are entirely arbitrary and pointless. If you have a party of say 15 people... don't bother showing up early because you have to wait for your WHOLE party to be present to get a lane. Why..? Idiotic.
Bowling is fun but the service staff are the worst. Takes forever to get any kind of service. How do you serve appetizers without plates? Asked for a ramp for the kids and never got it. Had to ask.gor.more water when the pitcher was clearly empty.
Big Al's is a big, loud sensory overload experience. But you know that going in. It can be broken down into food, bowling and the arcade. We didn't bowl. The food was surprisingly good, although a cheeseburger and a kids meal is pretty steep at $25. It was surprisingly good. I had the peanut butter and bacon cheeseburger and it was wonderful. The arcade is another story. It is advertised as having the most cutting edge games. Maybe three of them and the rest are just money sponge's. Donkey Kong with a faded screen is 50 cents. The game is from the 80's. Any game worth playing (and there aren't many) is $1.50 or more. They give a $5 card for every kids meal. That was 3 skeeball games and 2 reaction time games. Total playing time of about 6 minutes. I hope the bowling is better. Although, it's $9.00 per game (counting shoes). That's almost $40 for a family of four to bowl one game. Bottom line is that it is a pretty poor entertainment value.
Great place, when it’s open. I’ve driven here twice now just to be turned away because of private events.
Decent food. Great place for the kids!
The entire staff was very friendly. The bowling alley was a blast. They will bring food and drinks to your lane. The Philly cheese steak was delicious. They have auto bumbers and ramps for the kids. The arcade has a great mix of games for all ages.
Food was quite good and reasonably priced. Service was excellent.
Bowling is fun! Food is average. Arcade is fun!
Had Grandsons birthday party there. Lots of fun bowled, played arcade games. They furnished all that was needed for fun party. Will be back.
Food sucks but the place itself is great
Fun time for adults to be kids :)
Staff are nice and helpful. They have a large variety of food that is delicious
