“Nice Steak house”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

Working in Joliet. Hotel recommended this place. Sat at the bar, service was friendly and attentive. Ordered the blue Point Oysters... for this neck of the woods, very fresh! Salad bar was ok, filet was very good!! I will return!

“Joliet tradition”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Just went to Al's last night - they have a rib eye steak special on Monday night for $19.95 which includes homemade soup, salad bar (with things like kidney bean salad, macaroni salad, beets, Brussels sprouts salad, potato salad and the traditional lettuce with the toppings), rib eye steak (we chose to have it prepared Grecian style which is a dollar or two extra, but well worth it), choice of potato and dessert. We have also been there for the Friday night seafood buffet and the Sunday brunch buffet. Al's has a fashion show on Wednesday lunch hour featuring local models (never been since I work). Normally we order the Grecian filet when we go there, but the pork chops and seafood is really tasty too. Lobster Collins is another favorite with pieces of lobster in a garlic butter sauce with crumb topping. If my dining companions are co-operative, we get the filet and lobster and split it - too yummy!!

“What's the all the rave about this restaurant?”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

You had minimal portions and the meat was dry and rough. Side dishes were very small and children's menu was $9 a plate. Very dated décor and hostess was cold and not very friendly. We should've turned around and walked out right there.
Skip this place, seemed like a lot of senior citizens liked it but can't see why...

“Average for an above average price.”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Every local we talked to said eat at Al's. Well i wasn't impressed. The steak was tough. Waitress wasn't real friendly kind of grumpy. But the birthday cakes were so cool. I almost said it was my birthday just to get one. May have saved the meal. Wouldn't spend the money to eat here.

Reviewed 3 February 2014

Enjoyed an evening with my girlfriend and her family. I ordered shrimp and to my surprise the size and taste was the best shrimp I even enjoyed.
