A lot of the eateries in the area are set up for averacious sports fans with big screen, high sound TVs. This place is ideal for a peaceful experience. Good food to be had, slightly more expensive than others but it's worth it.

We've been here for dinner yesterday. Sulin from the hotel we stay, gave us this address. Great service, fantastic food and the atmosphere is perfect. If you love meat, it's a must to come here. Not very cheap, but it absolutely worth it! Would definitely recommend this place to everyone! :)

We arrived without a reservation and they were able to seat our party of 5 without any problem. The decor is modern and very pleasant. The waitress was excellent. The menu is what I expect when I go to a steakhouse. The smallest steak is a 6 oz filet which comes with a house salad and a choice of potato.... More

We went to Al's for my wife's birthday with a group of friends and this was the first time here since the remodel. The place is now more open & appealing. The food was great and the service was excellent. I highly recommend giving this place a try.

Went to Al's Steakhouse, just newly renovated for my 60th birthday last week and celebrated Mother's Day their this week. The first occasion with the sumptuous menu and perfectly cooked food and attention by staff made Al's an easy choice for Mother's Day. Pre dinner drinks, followed by appetizers of steak and tuna tartare, escargot, and warm mushroom toast (all... More

My first time at this restaurant, wasn't sure what to expect (other than the steakhouse prices). Steak was cooked perfectly a bit cold as a few of the diners mentioned but not cold enough to send it back. My stuffed mushroom app was the same it was like it sat on the pass for a bit, I think there must... More

I have gone to Als for 40 years and for at least 30 of those years have always enjoyed the ambience, service and food. Unfortunately it is no longer what it was. Prices have gone up, quality and service down. A great disappointment but we won't be going back. So sad.

The ambiance in this restaurant is lovely and the service is excellent. The beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection and was perfectly tender. The entree came with Brussels sprouts the night we were there and they wer perfectly seasoned and as delicious as the steak! We enjoyed a slice of light and delicious coconut cream pie for dessert.
