The food here is very good. The homemade garlic bread is delicious. The wings are very good as well, though I would not recommend the garlic wings. Prices are a little more compared to other Altoona bars, such as Jack and Georges.

Al's has a great menu and you really can't go wrong. Especially like the wings, but have had several good sandwiches as well. They also have a pretty good draft menu selection with a half dozen or so craft beers.

Nice place for lunch. The meatballs were awesome and the wings were tasty. Some gentlemen at the bar were tasting different beers; the bartender was very attentive.

Went to Al's for lunch a couple of times. We have been looking for a lunch place and have been trying several taverns in the area, Al's had good service and a very good lunch menu. The food was hot and experience was excellent.

I've been to Al's a few times since 2011. I have to say last night was the last time I will go there. This place is WAY overpriced for the area. I got a tuna steak sandwich - nothing on it (it came with a...More

The wings and sandwiches are good at Al's, but the service is regularly fairly poor. The prices are OK, about average for the area. The pizza is also good.

When I am hungry for wings I go to Al's Tavern. The wings are cooked the way I like them and the beer is always cold. The wait staff is very attentive.
