Just moved to the area and found Al's about a month ago. Good food, super waitstaff, reasonable prices and very welcoming. Been there twice so far and both times have been given take-out boxes to take dessert from the buffet home. Good family place and good food too.

This is a locally owned restarurant and the food is always well cooked. We take all of our family on Friday nights for their fish fry. There is enough room for a large group and our family can all sit together at the same table. They have a fresh all you can eat salad bar that comes with the meal... More

Al's Restaurant has been an important part of Harbor Beach for decades. They are famous for great buffets on the weekends and have a salad bar 7 days a week. Whatever you choose on their menu, you can be sure your portions will be big enough to provide a second meal for most appetites. Homemade breads, desserts, salads and turkey... More

They have very good food that is all homemade. The size of their portions are always enough, if you don't get enough to eat, it is your own fault. The salad and dessert bar comes with the meals. A wide variety of salads to choose from. You can also get their buffet, but we have found the meals to be... More

Stopped in here for a quick bite to eat a few weeks back. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food as well as the prices. Most diners like this in small towns only serve food that has been previously cooked or from frozen. The burgers in here are the real deal and are very good. All of... More
