I don't understand the hype with this place. Not to be rude, but it's pricey, snobby, and overrated. The wait staff is much nicer than the clientele. There are a few standout items on the menu, but most seem to be really old-world and not 21st century. If that's what you're looking for then this is your place. The restaurant... More

I seriously think this might have been the best steak I've ever had. The Wagyu bone-in prime rib was perfectly prepared and delicious! Baked Potato and Asparagus paired with the steak nicely. Pecan pie ended the evening. We will be back and bring friends!

Wife and I wanted to celebrate our anniversary and I wanted to eat prime rib. We searched and it appeared there were lots of steak houses but few of them offered prime rib. Al Biernat's did so we called to make reservations. Our great experience began with the phone call. We inquired about prime rib and the most friendly hostess... More

Al Biernat's is a great place for any occasion but what a wonderful spot for a celebration. They have a main dining room and then a smaller one toward the back with lovely windows. The service is impeccable... and the food is great... Lot's of new items but a lovely standard "steak" menu with great fish option... and a huge... More

This place has amazing food and the service is fantastic. Cassie was our server and Mike (manager?) came by our table. Fabulous food like Prime Rib, Filet Mignon and Crab cakes were out of this world. Cassie was very attentive and served with a smile throughout the evening.

We have been to almost all the steakhouse in DFW and this one is the best! Steaks were amazing but the Prime Rib is a must have! The coconut creme pie was the best we have had!

Always great steak house option if you are in the neighborhood. The food has always been spectacular, cooked exactly to order, and in copious amounts! Service is similarly spot on every time... consistency is definitely a plus here! The only negative has been the noise level and closely crowded tables inside the main dining area... for a change, ask to... More

Without a doubt THE best restaurant in Dallas / Ft Worth. Walk in and you're greeted with a smile and very welcome atmosphere. Enjoy a cocktail at the bar and say hello to Jessie who is an outstanding bartender. Once seated be ready for one of the best meals you'll ever have. Outstanding steaks and seafood. It's all done with... More

Used to go here at least once a year to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Beyond good steaks, the Chilean sea bass is excellent as well as Al's salad. Food excellent waiter service very poor if they sense you are not "elite". Been married 41 years and went many, many years in a row, from 2000 to about 2,013. Sadly, won't... More
