We had a great meal at Al's the twin lobsters and cocanut shrimp are excellent. Service excellent. Always a place to go when in town.

We are local and eat at Al's about once a month. They have some great seafood here and it's reasonably priced. The portions are large and the dining room has AC. Note that this is a small restaurant and the tables are limited. You order...More

The lobster was amazing and the fantail shrimp were excellent. The fries were very very good. The cole slaw to be honest I could not eat but who needs it. It had no distinguishable dressing. The seafood is the star here as it should be.

Lots of great reviews don't always result in great meals. The large filet of fried haddock, in a serviceable batter, was good enough, though somewhat underseasoned. But either the oil needed to be a bit hotter or the fish needed to be drained a bit...More
