Al' has been around for years. We decided to hold a small luncheon there. Nice comfortable place and the service was excellent. Food was quite good, well prepared. But, the prices are very high.

I visited Al’s for a family dinner of eight people and honestly, I should have taken notice when their reservation list was on a scrap piece of paper – it was a sign. I want to acknowledge our waitress; she was friendly, attentive and seemed genuinely invested in making our dinner enjoyable. To touch on other good points – I... More

Friday night - Remembrance Day. Pre Sens game meal with my wife. As usual, Sam the owner was there to greet us and get us a nice table by the window. Knowing we were going to the game, he offered to speed up service but we told him we would take it slow and easy. I ordered a 12 oz... More

My husband and I return periodically to Al's Steak House, and over the years, we are always as satisfied as the first time. We had calamars to start with, which were crispy, hot and delicious. Then we had their salad with their to die for garlic dressing. Finally, our steaks were served as ordered, tender, juicy and very tasty. All... More
