Excellent Buffet for Easter and great service !Reservations recommended for holidays! Very crowded but organized in seating people and accomodating everyone as quickly as possible. Restaurant looks very small from outside but inside is very roomy!

Made reservations for 10 on a Saturday night. Not a problem getting a table even with a full house. Hostess and waitress very helpful and knowledgeable to the menu. Food prepared to perfection. Enjoyed the evening with friends and good food.

I passed up this restraint many time before a friend took me there. The outside of the building looks like something from the 1980's. The inside reminds me of a very formal well kept dining room. It is a place where romance comes to mind....More

Al's is, and may always be, a solid place for a nice meal in Joliet. At one time it was a bit upscale in all measures - more middle of the pack these days. Reliable but noting of great note these days.

Wonderful atmosphere, great service and good food! Shrimp cocktail was delicious but very pricey...$12.50 for 4 jumbo shrimp. I had Al’s Steak Diane, salad bar and garlic mashed potatoes for $20.99.

I have a soft spot for Al’s having visited in the ‘60s as a child and again in the late ‘70s as a newlywed. Nothing has changed. The decor is warm and inviting, the quality of the food is terrific, the steaks succulent Some would...More

If they are having a buffet, I would not go. Look on their website. If they offer a limited menu, that is good.
