“Fun with Friends...”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

We have visited Big Al's on several occasions, mostly as a gathering with friends. Recently, we had the pleasure of a live, acoustical playing of classic rock. Rusty Stevens and Co. sat on stage and played some fantastic tunes. It was on a glorious beautiful Carolina Saturday. It also was the ending to a great Winter Wine Festival in Albemarle. We were fortunate enough to have Big Al's just up the street from where the festivities took place. We met up with a large group of friends, ordered some wonderful IPA on draft and a variety of wings from the menu. The wings are wonderful. I have tried several different kinds but Habenero Honey are my fav. Whatever type it is, you have a vast assortment to choose from. The fried dill pickle chips are really tasty too. Also on the menu are wonderful burgers, pizza, and most any other type of food that you can imagine. The menu is definitely large on variety. Great atmosphere, great music, great beer all to be enjoyed with fabulous friends. Visit downtown Albemarle and enjoy.

“So So Sports Bar”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

Food is basically "Bar Food". Limited menu. Poor Service. I would not recommend this place. I hear they have live music some nights which may be worth checking out.

“Lots of yellow beer, not much craft beer”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

This place used to be Z Pi. The food is average, but the craft beer selection is lacking. Service is good and bands on the weekends are the high point of this venue.
