The spirit of the “Big Easy” is definitely shown at Big Al’s Oyster Bar inside The Orleans Hotel and Casino. The casual restaurant serves up seafood dishes and delicious Cajun-Creole cuisine. Start with the perfect-for-sharing seafood sampler which includes shrimp, clams, oysters, Alaskan king crab legs and Big Al’s signature ceviche. Bayou entrees served in a large Louisiana-size bowl include jambalaya pasta, seafood gumbo, shrimp, and chicken carbonara, crab and shrimp boil, and pan-fried Asian salmon. Other menu items include sandwiches, wraps and salads. Lunch specials are available, too.
