Nice place for lunch. The meatballs were awesome and the wings were tasty. Some gentlemen at the bar were tasting different beers; the bartender was very attentive.

Went to Al's for lunch a couple of times. We have been looking for a lunch place and have been trying several taverns in the area, Al's had good service and a very good lunch menu. The food was hot and experience was excellent.

Good, honest food, served the way a person who wants to eat would expect it. Flavorful, and abundant. Great beer selection, too. Definitively going to hit this place up again when I am in Altoona.

Good selection of well prepared food. A friendly neighborhood type restaurant/bar ... also having a mid-size dining area for a larger group. A casual, fun place to be.
