Al and Alma's is one of the jewels of he dinning experience in the Twin Cities. The food was excellent and the service just terrific. I felt so welcome there.
Although they were extremely busy(Valentines Day), the service, food, and ambience was outstanding. We will be back in the summer for a cruise!!
My wife and I spent New Yesrs Eve here for a delicious dinner prior to a movie night out. It was decorated nicely for the Holidays, quiet, clean and warm on a cold night.
Our food was very good with service that was except able, but I was waiting to ask for a second glass of water, without a mid dinner visit after the first to see if we were satisfied.
I let it pass on a busy dinning night out for any one working for us that weren’t.
We will return at some point.
We always enjoy Al and Almas. Food is good and reasonably priced. Service is good.
We wanted to take our kids out for a special dinner that wasn’t a chain restaurant. We loved it, they loved it. We have 4 kids, including 5 year old twins. It was perfect for a family with fantastic service, great food options and awesome ambience. Will definitely go again!!
We have also gone on their Father’s Day cruise, that was fantastic too!!
Very Cold in the resturant. Bathrooms were freezing cold with no hot water to wash hands. We had 5pm dinner reservations. They would not open their doors until 5:05PM. Food was OK. Nothing special. Old time crackers.
Very nice setting and excellent service. My wife's meal was very good and mine was average. I don't think anyone in Mn knows how to make ribs.
Al & Alma's is the quintessential supper club, right on Lake Minnetonka. There were 6 of us (1 child) for a Saturday night dinner. It was pretty empty when we arrived at 5:45 but quickly filled up by 6:30. 3 of us had steaks, they were all very good. The cheesy hashbrown (special side) was amazing. Too bad it was already dark so we couldn't see the lake. Service was fine, not outstanding, but we weren't in a hurry. Overall great place.
Had a wonderful time and food here with our parents and kids. We had a beautiful window seat where we could see the charter boat take off on the lake. The food was great, but would have loved vegan options. Our waitress was very kind and helpful. Will definitely come here again if the menu expands to include vegan options.
The most delicious onion rings...crispy coating served nice and hot...one of our favorites!
My wife & I arrived for dinner for our anniversary & being a person of color I got the look that they have never seen a person of color in this Resturant!!!
Our waitress was not good! She kept bringing me beers that had 3 ounces of beer missing. I had the walleye which was good, but they served it with cold potatos & when I brought this to the servers attention she didn't take upon herself to fix it. Needless to say I won't be returning to business again!
Ribs were very good. Fried Chicken was also very good.
Our table was ready for us upon our arrival, but with the crowd and noise level, that was not the place for conversation. I wouldn't call it a supper club as much as a bar with dining tables scattered about.
The food was pretty good, not outstanding. There was a fair variety of choices, but not so many that it took long to decide what to try.
Always delicious! Great liver and onions, salads, pasta! Friendly staff!
I was blown away! I loved the location, friendliness of the staff, attentiveness of the staff, helpfulness of the staff when recommending drinks and meals. The meal I had was the lobster mac n cheese and it was AMAZING. I am very picky about any and all kinds of mac n cheese and this more than measured up!!! all I could do the next day was thinking about the lobster mac n cheese. I was visiting a friend and have advised her that this will be a tradition. Everytime I visit we will be stopping by! LOVED!!!!
So perfect! It was my last night in America before shipping off to Germany with the army! Everyone made the meal exceptional and were very attentive! Obviously had the lobster mac! Does not disappoint!
BBQ ribs were delicious! Another member of our party had liver and onions and said it was good too. Service was efficient and pleasant. Our reservation and request for a window table were no problem. This was our first time here and we enjoyed our dinner even though the restaurant isn't as upscale as we were expecting for an establishment called a "supper club". Dining area is small and in the same room as the bar. Tables are close together and chair backs from adjacent tables tend to touch the back of each other. Tables tops are Formica with no linens/placemats. The restaurant is not directly on the lake but across the street from the lake and there are houses between the restaurant and the lake. Lake views are through the yards of the houses.
The onion rings are great ! The only reason I gave it a three overall was we never got our OpenTable points.
We used to live in the area and have eaten at AL & Alma's for years, been on boat cruises, and have been there for Silent Auctions and family events. We moved to CA about four an a half years ago and when in MN have to get some good walleye! Their camp style walleye is excellent and Iove the oven browned potatoes. This meal was with our family that still lives in the area. I would recommend this local treasure to anyone!
We liked it so much that we are going back tonight.
Service was great! Place was packed and all the servers were very busy but did a great job. Food came quickly, we had a deadline and the server had no problem getting us out before that! Food was very good! Would definitely recommend!
Iconic Lake Minnetonka restaurant across the street from the lake, completely remodeled, looks quite different from 20 years ago but I really like the place. A must go to at least yearly.
Our garlic mashed potatoes were not very warm. Even though the chicken tasted good, it seemed a bit done. The ribs and shrimp were VERY good! The service was GREAT and we really liked the atmosphere and location. Will be back to try a couple other menu items.
We were seated and then nobody came to our table for about 10 minutes. The place was packed and so noisy that when the server did come, she couldn't even hear us. The food quantity seems to have diminished. It was very disappointing. Don't need to go back any time soon.
We love going to Al & Alma's! We always have great service and the food is fabulous for a reasonable price! We love to support our local businesses! Not only is the supperclub a great experience for food and service, but so are the cruises - whether you go on a public or private!
The food was prepared and cooked to perfection. Major kudos to the chef! The only thing I noticed was that the waitress's were so busy that I felt bad for them. They did an awesome job but they should have had more staff for Mother's Day. We're definitely coming back soon!
a favorite spot for our family, you'll always have a great time at Al & Alma's!
Al and Alma's consistently has good food. We've sampled most of the menu over the years.
We had not been there for many years and were in the neighborhood. Loved it and will be back with friends!
Haven't eaten at Al & Alma's in awhile, don't know why, cuz it is a nice place, off the beaten path with consistantly good food! We'll be back!
