Some good things- some not so good

My wife and I had a meal at Al's last evening ( a Sunday). We had never before been to this restaurant. I ordered an 8 ounce filet and my wife ordered a full slab of ribs. We started with their onion soup which was available with an upcharge. We were very glad we decided on the onion soup ,... read more

We go here all the time and I cannot figure the bad reviews, as we never had a bad meal here. The staff members treat you and guests like royalty and listen to your orders without mistakes. The portions are just giant in size and normally feed us for several days at home. If you got a bad meal here... More

Al's has one of the best new york strip steaks that I have ever had. The service was great and so was the price. I had the aged steak and it was fantastic! You might want to make reservations, especially on a occasion or large group.

We went there because we were in the area and looking for somewhere different to try. We found out we also had a entertainment coupon on our phone for Al's Char-house, so we thought we give it a try. The meat in the case they had displayed up front looked like pretty large cuts. We ordered the onion blossom, which... More

The good… service was excellent. The best thing on our plates were the steam carrots, the baked potato, the bread, and the onion soup - in that order. The servings were generous. The bad…I ordered the “Jack Daniels” steak which apparently was marinated in molasses spiked with sugar. I guess I’m old fashioned about my steaks, but I like them... More

Looked on line for a place to get a beer and a burger in LaGrange. Looked good, so we went. OMG, we did not realize that it was a full pound! Delicious, but we ended up taking a full one home and ate it later. If you are a senior citizen or just a small eater, order one and split... More

They did not on honored terms and stipulations shown on our Groupon. We had a party of 14 and only one person was allowed to use a coupon, Even though Groupon says one per person not one per party. The food was cold for couple of our friends and then upon return it was burnt. Manager of this place was... More

Perhaps if we had chosen a different night other than Christmas Eve, when the restaurant, down a looong flight of stairs, had been less crowded, our dining experience might have been better. As it was, we found nothing to rave about with the food. The service was fine, but the cheese potatoes were dry and crusty; the ribs seemed to... More
