The food was great, building held together with sticky notes or something comparable. Restaurant has recently closed.

Not good. Really a bar first. Food is prepackaged and re-heated. Never looks open, not even sure it is.

It is a hole in the wall. Hours are few except on Friday but everything that I have eaten there has been great quality for the price. Friendly and good service, Cheap eats.

New management, no draught beer, raised food prices across the board. Wife, I, and a friend had their fish & chips and a bottle of beer. Food was OK; but the unique atmosphere we would road trip here for, is gone.

we stopped by for lunch - this place was a great surprise. We were not tempted to walk in - not very attractive- but happy we did! The fish fry, seafood platter and cheese burger all hot thumbs up. Service was fast and friendly.

Went to Al's Place on 12/21/2014 for lunch, food and service were great. Noticed an odor of dampness when we first entered the restaurant, but soon forgot about it. We had the seafood combo, which included a white fish, shrimp, scallops, hush puppy's, fries and slaw. Servings were more than adequate and price was more than fair(especially with a coupon)....

We read reviews and went to Al's for lunch--a convenient location for birding state parks in the area, We all had the daily special fish. There were a few locals present and they didn't hesitate to urge us to look no further on the menu than the special. Good choice! The owner/manager waited tables and chatted with all. It was...

Cozy litle place with excellent service and friendly atmosphere. Live Country Music was available on our visit and was provided by "Mavrick & Co." Great Country sounds, could have stayed longer!

We have lived in Lake Wales for over a year now but had not gotten to Al's until last week. I had heard that they had a great burger, which my husband loves, so I suggested we give it a try. It is truly an old fashioned little local spot. If you are looking for fancy - not your place... More
