Met old friends for dinner. Upon arrival we were greeted very warmly. Our server attended all our needs. The food was excellent, but what large portions. Six of us could habe easily split 2 meals. Although, we all enjoyed our leftovers for lunch the next day. Two thumbs up.

Great steaks and service. Lower level so pretty dark. Been there a long time so great tradition. Not handicapped accessible.

I'd go with 3.5 stars if I could. I've been here a few times this past year so thought it was time to write a review. Al's kitschy Wild West decor is what it is. Service is friendly and usually good, but can be absent-minded at times. The steaks aren't the highest quality, but are cooked properly and you most... More

Definitely a " Country Cowboy" type of restaurant with all the decore....But DON"T let that be a turnoff.....because the portions were "HUGH" as well as the flavor....My prime rib was one of the best ever as well as my Love's rib eye steak......absolutely some of the best anywhere. Service was impeccable as well as the kitchen staff was quick so... More

Dining for 6, not one happy customer (dint even take the steaks home for the dogs, didn't want to offend them) . The catfish wash terrible undercooked and definitely not fresh, steaks overcooked and dry, and shrimp fried twice as long as it should have been. Rice was bland and overcooked, and the mashed potatoes or casserole were just as... More

Come down to the Dungeon and have really large meat. Not the best quality, but it is HUGE. The Burger is the size of a frying pan. Literally. Huge. Bring the family and pig out.

My family and I have been going to Al's since they opened and usually visit 4-6 times per year. Each time we visit the food is excellent and reasonably priced. During the winter their bar is a great place to enjoy a cocktail (they have a great selection of cocktails) with the center island gas fireplace keeping you cozy and... More

Friendly service with a cheerful waitress. Surroundings not bad for a basement restaurant. Food was average. We used a groupon with no issues. Probably won't be back though.
