I was in the mood for some seat when I spied fresh clams and mussels in a white wine/ butter sauce on the menu. Fresh and delicious I thought it enough for a full meal.
My friend had the pear salad and they happily accommodated her request to add a bit of steak to her salad. Their service staff are always gracious about trying to fulfill any special requests.
Always a pleasant experience and always great food.

Fantastic evening, wonderful food, excellent service. Antonio did a great job explaining the menu to us, got drinks started right away, and surprised us with coconut pie for anniversary dessert! Excited to return soon! PS - Al, thx for stopping at our table. Special touch!

Another great steakhouse that has great staff working with it! The food options are of a good variety and is extensive compared to other steak places who have deeply shorten their menu due to the pandemic. The staff of course waited on us hand-and-foot. It was my husband's birthday and a few people stopped by to wish him a happy birthday. He felt like a king! This is my second go-around with Al Biernat's and it will not be my last. In my robo-cop voice, "I'll be back!"

We go to Al's for all the 'important events in our lives"! The food is great and we just love that we can count on everything to always be the BEST!! WE CELEBRATED my husband's 76th birthday last night and it was suppose to be SPECIAL, since COVID MESSED UP HIS 75th. IT WAS WONDERFUL BEYOND! The food and service were the best, I think, we have ever had! So happy that we can always count on Al and the rest of the people at Al's to make things just perfect. Ask, and you shall receive!!

Al Biernat's is our go-to spot to celebrate life. We can count on Al's to offer great food and service in a wonderful atmosphere. I wish I had said something to the wait staff when we were seated because I was not happy with my table (#22). Other than that, the waitress was wonderful and the food and drinks were all you could hope for.

Service, drinks, and food were all impeccable. Our waitress was wonderfully prompt and attentive, and handled a food allergy perfectly. Al Biernat's is obviously a community staple, and lives up to that reputation fully.

A couple years ago, before the coronavirus pandemic set it, we went with friends to Al Biernat's for brunch. We had the strawberry pancakes and they were the best pancakes we had ever tasted. We only came back Sunday because we heard they were on the brunch menu again. What a disappointment! They were virtually inedible. Whether this is because you can't find the right fresh ingredients anymore, or you can't get good kitchen staff, or all the above and maybe others too, is irrelevant. We won't be coming to Al Biernat's again. Such a pity.

"Disappointing" We went for Restaurant Week in Dallas wanting to give Al Biernat's one more chance to WOW us especially after so many of our friends always rave about it. As in the past, we were NOT WOW'd. My husband's Old Fashion was good and his escargot appetizer was very good. His short rib with garlic mashed potatoes was tender but all were completely tasteless. The coconut cream pie, they're supposedly known for, was also tasteless, somewhat dry and had enough coconut that he got his fiber for a week. I ordered the 8oz filet from the regular menu. I must admit it was very good and cooked just right. Unfortunately, my cheesecake was disappointing at best. We'll not be giving Al Biernat's another chance.

Service and ambience is great as always. The restaurant week menu was weak, and don’t even think about ordering the short rib. Not Good. The red snapper was very good, however.

We go ad a lovely meal. We both had the chef's special red snapper and it melted in our mouths. I started wirh the poke that was amazing. My husband had a Ceasar's salad and said it was great. We brought home a slice of coconut cream pie and cheesecake. Our kids devoured them. We will return soon!

Between appetizers and meals, we had seafood and steak. Everything was great. Coconut and key lime pies were great too. Waiter allowed us to pace our meal as we weren't in a hurry.
