I passed up this restraint many time before a friend took me there. The outside of the building looks like something from the 1980's. The inside reminds me of a very formal well kept dining room. It is a place where romance comes to mind....More

Al's is, and may always be, a solid place for a nice meal in Joliet. At one time it was a bit upscale in all measures - more middle of the pack these days. Reliable but noting of great note these days.

Wonderful atmosphere, great service and good food! Shrimp cocktail was delicious but very pricey...$12.50 for 4 jumbo shrimp. I had Al’s Steak Diane, salad bar and garlic mashed potatoes for $20.99.

My grandma took me here for lunch, it’s one of her favorites. Al’s is always consistent-the pork chop is delicious as is their salmon and shrimp entrees. Try their double baked potato it’s a must! If your looking for something different their garden salad filled...More

If they are having a buffet, I would not go. Look on their website. If they offer a limited menu, that is good.
