I have a soft spot for Al’s having visited in the ‘60s as a child and again in the late ‘70s as a newlywed. Nothing has changed. The decor is warm and inviting, the quality of the food is terrific, the steaks succulent Some would...More

My grandma took me here for lunch, it’s one of her favorites. Al’s is always consistent-the pork chop is delicious as is their salmon and shrimp entrees. Try their double baked potato it’s a must! If your looking for something different their garden salad filled...More

Enjoyed food and menu had some great options. I had the frog legs which was an unexpected treat. Onion soup was the old fashioned with lots of cheese-really a delightful and hearty soup. All staff and servers were kind and accommodating to out-of-towners.

We have been here before, for the Sunday buffet, which us out of this world! We came on a Friday night because this place serves froglegs which isn't common to most area menus. This place is pricey so we don't come often. Splurge night! We...More

If they are having a buffet, I would not go. Look on their website. If they offer a limited menu, that is good.
