    Everyone loved their food and the service was great! Make a reservation to get the booth seating. That way you are not in the middle of the restaurant which is noisy.

    We got BBQ oysters, and 4 out of 6 came out the size of the nickel. Sent them back. The star of the dinner was the crab salad. Delish. The Boston Chowder had a good flavor, but the potatoes were underdone, and the clams were gummy.

    The restaurant itself was bright and clean. My buddy and I went in to enjoy the seafood, we were not disappointed. The Maryland crab soup was excellent and the jambalaya was amazing. My buddy got the blackened salmon, he said it was also extremely good

    We have dined at Al's many times when visiting form the East Coast. We always enjoy the great food that the chefs create. The gumbo is one of our favorites and we are happy it is on the lunch specials. The soups are excellent. The staff is friendly and professional.

    Caesar salad was flavorful and very fresh. Bowl of New England style clam chowder was outstanding. Large portions; next time will have a cup of chowder with salad. Bread was fresh, hot, crunchy on the outside, soft and warm and tasty. Would highly recommend this place for seafood. Staff was friendly and helpful.

    Nothing fancy, but great food, reasonably priced. Wine list was like 10 choices, nothing over 30$. I like to consider myself a foodie and I love ambiance but for the price and what you get, I highly recommend it.

    We went on a Saturday night. Since it was the Christmas and New Years holidays, the people in the hotel/casino and restaurant area were all in good moods celebrating. When people are having a good time, the noise level goes up naturally. The noise level was not obnoxious, but it was elevated. The restaurant staff were very attentive and the food was great. I would definitely return to this restaurant.

    Been here many times. If you like a predominantly shellfish menu. you will love this menu. On this visit, my wife and I shared an appetizer of a dozen oysters on the half shell. Large oysters without a bit of grit or sand. They smelled of the ocean and were as fresh as could be asked for. My wife had the jambalaya pasta and it was more than she could finish. I had the Xmas special of a cup of Manhattan clam chowder, lobster ravioli with crab sauce and a slice of the yule log for dessert. Everything was great. The only downside was that the cooks were so busy, it took longer than expected to get our food. The manager was very apologetic and comped my wife's cocktail to make amends. In all, a wonderful experience.
