Once again at my favorite steak place in Dallas. This time was for Sunday Brunch. As usual the food and service was outstanding. My pancakes with Grand Mariner strawberries and brown sugar butter was great accompanied by an order of bacon cooked to wonderful crispness. My wife got the lobster omelet but complained about too many peppers overpowering the taste... More

Had a fabulous birthday dinner at Al Biernats with my daughter and a friend. The steaks were amazing! The lobster bisque had excellent flavor even though there wasn't any lobster in my serving. The wine selection was large with some very nice options. The bar and restaurant was crowded so be sure and make reservations!

We have been dining at this establishment each Dec 24th for about 4 years now. Its always lively on Christmas eve and the place is jammed. The service was top shelf as usual but the steaks were lacking this year. I decided to try the prime rib for once and although the serving size was over the top, it was... More

Spending a Christmas Eve at our favorite steakhouse, what could go wrong? We love Al Biernat’s! Om: Al Biernat’s tops our list of favorite steakhouses due to their mouthwatering steak, that surpasses anything else that we’ve had! However, this was certainly an uneven experience, and Nom hypothesized that the “B-Team” was working on this Christmas Eve… • Service – Our... More

We went to dinner and food and service were excellent. Waiter accommodated our request to change seating without pause. Evening could not have been better.

The service here is amazing. We eat out at upscale restaurants more than I would like to admits and Al Biernat's has some of the best staff around. The conversation is enjoyable versus stilted and although they are often booked (you must get a reservation) we never feel rushed. My teenage daughter loves steak and by loves, I mean that... More

Attended a business function for my first visit to Al's. The Sea Bass / Lobster Risotto combo was excellent, as were the sides and cream brûlée. Service was friendly and efficient. My only complaint would be that it is very noisy and difficult to carry out a conversation.

We've enjoyed this restaurant several times over the past 4yrs. We've enjoyed everything we've ordered! "Al's Salad" (w/shrimp & crab), Chilean Sea Bass and the Bay of Fundy Salmon are a few of our very favorites! A great overall dining experience with impeccable service, delicious menu items and a great place to "people watch"! Always a trendy, up-scale Dallas crowd!
