For the price point I was hoping for just a bit more from these guys. The apps were fantastic as were our steaks. The lobster mac and cheese came with some nice lobster shells mixed in and the sauteed spinach was quite chewy. The ultimate let down was the service. Our server seemed like it was a constant race to the finish with zero personality. Her helper was absolutely fantastic. That gentleman needs to be a server and not a deliverer of bread and lighter of candles. Kudos my man. Thanks for making up for the other shortcomings. Overall a very nice visit and would come back again.

PS: Special thank you to the manager. Stand up guy.

Love, love, love this restaurant. The food is always fantastic and service impeccable. I just wish they would do something to quiet it down. We took Mom for her 80th birthday and ended up repeating everything. Even with hearing aids she couldn’t hear the conversation.

A favorite restaurant for our family and we chose this for my husband's retirement dinner. Brian was our waiter and he was so kind, considerate, and helpful through out the evening. Above all else he made my husband feel special on this occasion for celebration.

Always very good but our service this late evening could have been more attentive. We arrived around 10:15 for a late dinner after the Mavs game and were seated quickly. We then had a few servers come to us and then disappear. Not sure if they knew whose table it was but after awhile they figured it out. See you again soon

Outstanding quality and service! We went there on a spur of the moment for a birthday meal and was completely at awe of the food. My only complaint was the place is a bit noisy but this can be overlooked for the fact the food is outstanding.

Amazing dinner. Started off with a cocktail, which we were told to take our time and to let them know we were ready for the table. We had the porterhouse for 2, lobster risotto, and Mac and cheese. Would definitely come back again!

Al's never disappoints. We were there to celebrate our son and future daughter in law's engagement with a large party of 9. Food and attention to detail were over the top. Love, love, love the food. The steaks and seafood were done to perfection. We had one diner with diet restrictions and was able to accommodate. Lots of picture taking and congratulations from neighboring tables, showing true Southern hospitality. We love coming to Al's and will come back!

Had to wait almost an hour for our reservation.
Wait person was using her invisibility cloak to disappear for minutes at a time. One of my favorite restaurants but this experience was one of the worst dining nights ever especially considering since i called and asked for our favorite waiter and mentioned it was a birthday dinner.
Terrible night.

We were celebrating my boyfriend's 32nd birthday. He said the Bone-In Filet was the best steak he's ever eaten. We've dined at Bob's, Chamberlains, Perry's... blew them out of the water. I had the filet and it was equally as delicious. I booked and noted we were celebrating a birthday and towards the end of the meal, our waiter asked what my boyfriend's favorite dessert was and after we finished our meal, he brought it out with a candle and "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate on the plate. Such a nice touch without even having to pull the waiter aside and requesting it. We will definitely be back.

A longtime Dallas classic. Professional wait staff, tremendous and diverse menu, energetic atmosphere. Biernat’s very accommodating to requests made in advance. A booth request is s good idea during peak times as both the dining room and bar can become fairly noisy.

I had not dined there in ten years. During that period, the restaurant had done a substantial renovation. It is darker now. It is a great look, just different. The great food and service remained unchanged as I remembered them. It remains a special treat I get as an infrequent reward for my guest and myself.
