Reviewed March 5, 2012

We have eaten here for the last 3 years before going on our trips. The food was great and the service and waiters were excellent. A great kick off to our trip!

“Staff and Managment made my Husband's Surprise 40th the Best!”
Reviewed July 15, 2011

From the moment I received the menu until the cleaning up, We had the best experience with Al's. The Management helped us since, this was a surprise I wasn't sure how many total people were going to be able to come, they were very accommodating. For Starter the hor'dorves were a great hit, then we were able to select from the menu since we had a smaller group. Wonderful staff waiting on us for anything we needed, worked well with set-up and clean up. Best Kids Menu out there. My husband had a blast and so did we. They made it so easy for, me I will definitely use them again for party's. We have gone back with just the four of us for Friday fish fry... awesome. I have never been disappointed. In a town/area filled with chain restaurants Al Bakers' is a hometown hero!

“eh, basic sports bar, not my cup of tea, but service was fine, beer cold.”
Reviewed July 23, 2010

Within walking distance of hotel a plus. We weren't super hungry I just got chicken pot pie and it was average at best, did not taste housemade. Basic sports bar atmosphere.

“Terrible experience!”
Reviewed June 8, 2010

We made reservations, yet they made us wait because they weren't ready for us. They had live music of one man on a guitar, so unbelievably loud that even the waitresses were complaining. That is, if you could hear anyone. The bland tasting food took over an hour and came warm at best. The waitress had a chip on her shoulder and let everyone at our table have it with comments and attitude on the side. Children from a party were running around screaming and hollering seemingly trying to out do the live music. A construction site with jack hammers would have been a more pleasing atmosphere. First time, and last time we tried this restaurant.

“Good food, good crowd.”
Reviewed January 15, 2010

We have been to Al Baker's on a few occasions. Our last was on New Year's Eve. The Eagan Athletic Association hosts $1/$2 bingo every Tuesday and Thursday night and since New Year's fell on a Thursday, we decided to go. They had great appetizer and drink specials. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that a band would be performing after the bingo was over. It was a really fun time and the crowd was great.
