Boston Clam Chowder White
The menu selection is very good. Food is downright yummy. The service is good. We will be back for the food.
Ordered from the appetizer menu, food was good. Looking forward to ordering from the entree menu on my next visit.
Service stellar and atmosphere awesome!
Went after movies.
We always visit Big Al's when we're in Vegas, great food
We love the food here. Everything is always fantastic! Service could be better but regardless, we'll be back!
Tried the Louisiana Gumbo twice within a week and was excellent both times. The service could be better but the food made up for it.
A nice place to go before the movies. Everything tasted great. Very busy at the time.
We appreciate you taking the time to provide positive feedback from your recent visit and we're already looking forward to your next trip!
The food was very tasty and there was something for everyone from pre-teens to senior citizens.
Food was awesome!!
I had the Clam Linguini. The portions and the amount of clams are great. Service was excellent, I can’t wait to go back and try the other dishes they have.
Caesar salad was flavorful and very fresh. Bowl of New England style clam chowder was outstanding. Large portions; next time will have a cup of chowder with salad. Bread was fresh, hot, crunchy on the outside, soft and warm and tasty. Would highly recommend this place for seafood.
Staff was friendly and helpful.
Nothing fancy, but great food, reasonably priced. Wine list was like 10 choices, nothing over 30$. I like to consider myself a foodie and I love ambiance but for the price and what you get, I highly recommend it.
A gastronomic delight just like always -
I recommend the crab cakes.
Very good food. Large portions
Always the best never a problem with the quality of the food
Big servings. Nice atmosphere fair price and great service
The Food at BIG AL’S is so good we Always have to get a few more orders to go. They Also have Wheelchair Accessibility
We went on a Saturday night. Since it was the Christmas and New Years holidays, the people in the hotel/casino and restaurant area were all in good moods celebrating. When people are having a good time, the noise level goes up naturally. The noise level was not obnoxious, but it was elevated. The restaurant staff were very attentive and the food was great. I would definitely return to this restaurant.
Choppino was excellent. Bread very good. Mussels were not very good.
Been here many times. If you like a predominantly shellfish menu. you will love this menu. On this visit, my wife and I shared an appetizer of a dozen oysters on the half shell. Large oysters without a bit of grit or sand. They smelled of the ocean and were as fresh as could be asked for. My wife had the jambalaya pasta and it was more than she could finish. I had the Xmas special of a cup of Manhattan clam chowder, lobster ravioli with crab sauce and a slice of the yule log for dessert. Everything was great. The only downside was that the cooks were so busy, it took longer than expected to get our food. The manager was very apologetic and comped my wife's cocktail to make amends. In all, a wonderful experience.
Fabulous service, great fresh seafood and cold beer!
Ordered a few appetizers, soups, salads and entrees, courses came out overlapping one another.
Always great at Big Al’s
A place to stop by when you go to Vegas
Very good food. Excellent service. Clam chowder was amazing.
Great Food. Fast and Friendly Service. Gumbo is so good we had to take some Home
Food was good, prices are reasonable. At one point my wife said she counted 7 restaurant workers visibly not working; they were talking or watching tv. They were friendly, when they did come around. I would go back again.
The portions were very large. The crab roast and jumbo was very tasty and enjoyed it very much. People were very friendly.
Had a wonderful time the food was hot and very delicious.
I will be coming back in the future.
I always have a great time at Big Al’s! It made my birthday very special!!!
Best place in Vegas for seafood and price and a really great place to stay
I’ve eaten at the oyster bars at the station casinos and figured this one would be similar. First walking up is a VERY STRONG FISH ODOR. Which I ignored and chalked it up to it being because it’s a fish house. I ordered a dozen oysters and should have known better when I didn’t have a choice of what type of oysters to choose from. They were small, had no juices with them and weren’t cleaned properly or shucked properly. So much grit and broken shell, NOT good eats. Then I had some clam chowder...let’s just say pretty sure they forgot the clams. I will never eat here again.
Always Great Food...Gumbo so Good had to take 2 Orders Home
Service was a little slow, but the food was delicious. First time I've seen a combination of Boston and New England clam chowder (called fish stew on the menu). It was fabulous - chock full of seafood! The oysters were tasty and cold and the horseradish was STRONG!! Loved it.
Best clam chowder I have ever had! Large portions for the price.
Sat promptly and served drinks and told our server would be with us shortly. Had to ask a manager to send server over. It wasn’t busy either. Brought oysters and never explained what kind of oysters. Never asked us once how was our food, can I get you anything else. Just some of the poorest service I have received in ages.
Placed our order. Received it quickly, but the server never came around to ask how we are doing, also no refreshing our our drinks
Large portions. I suggest sharing unless you want to bring home leftovers
Our family ordered and rated the following...
-Oysters on the half shell = 4
-Crab Legs = 3
-Boston Chowder = 3
-Louisiana Gumbo = 4.5
The gumbo was amazing, and for $16, the amount was enormous! It easily can be shared between 2 people. Chicken, smoked ham, sausage, shrimp on top of rice....very tasty!
We noticed a lot of cioppino and bouilabaisse being delivered, and they looked delicious.
The best steamed clams I've found in town and a great price.
We ate here last year and had a great experience. This time we invited friends to try it. So disappointed. Two orders of bacon wrapped shrimp were subpar. Bacon under cooked, shrimp over cooked. Our server was terrible. He took our order and never came back. Other staff brought our food, picked up dishes etc, but no one ever asked us if we wanted more drinks or anything else. We should have ordered the crab boil as we enjoyed that last year. May come back as it’s unlikely we will have a lousy server next year.
Looking for a quick meal before a show, we have very good food, with large portions
